Whoa, it's been nearly 9 years since I first made this thread. When we look back at the beginning posts it's incredible how fast technology has evolved. I used to think my setup was good.. hahaha...ha..
I hope this isn't too much of a far fetched post. Basically, I am obsessed with the super wide airy sound with crispy, fast bass the DT880's provide, but I want the sound in IEMs. Unamped.
What are the closest IEMs to this sound? My budget is $200 USD / $260 CAD / ￥25,000. Thanks in advance.
Thread title updated to reflect the ongoing discussion.
As for ATH-M50LE vs A900X (Trying to recall from a week ago)
A few notable differences:
The M50LE's have more bass
The A900X's have much better imaging
The M50LE's are a bit more fatiguing
The A900X's are more comfortable
They're similar in treble, but the A900X's are more fun with the midrange..vocals sound smoother for example.
