I have to remind myself to try the F1's. I just looked up today, in fact, to see what exactly were the pair of Sony headphones I see everyday in a room in my university's math building--these are it! I will try to contact the owner tomorrow to see if I can demo them.

#1 Sennheiser HD 800-Got it few days ago.  Within minutes of putting it on I was in another world!  Truly amazing.

#2 Beyerdynamic T1-Very detailed and great all arounder.

#3 Sennheiser HD 700-I  love the Sennheisers.HD 700-About 80% of performance of HD 800.  SUPER comfortable and light.  I rather sacrifice a little comfort for quality.

I'd considered the T1, but hadn't quite got around to buying it......though I'm getting an AKG K812 to compare it against my HD800 and LCD2. Coincidentally, I have a HD700 as well and I love it, I don't get why there was, and is, so much hate for it. As stated, I'll revise my rating when I get the K812, and as an added bonus, I'll be getting a HE400i at the same time......so stoked, more shiny new stuff to play with!:D

I strongly agree with you HD700 is a great headphone. Far better than HD600 and light years away for comfort. It sounds slightly dark side but I think it's a great set of cans. Underrated.

The HD700 is a lot of things, but dark?

I've heard them be both dark and bright. Depends on the system behind them in my experience.

This makes me regret for not having demoed the HD 700 when I was at Sweetwater in Fort Wayne, Indiana, last summer. I just wanted to demo the HD 800 so much that I totally forgot about them.

 

By the way, I can't wait to demo HiFiMAN's in Michigan! A fellow Michiganian forumer in the HE-1000 thread informed me that Overture Audio in Ann Arbor now carries HiFiMAN planar dynamics. Most people like me would not have known at all about this since their site still shows them only carrying Grado Labs, so I am quite happy for the insider information and the prospect I have of listening to them when I come home this spring. Maybe this is wishful thinking, but them having a HE-1000 demo unit would be the bee's knees...

An update, got a new headphone, it stunned me in how good it sounded. I wasn't expecting this, I knew the Sextetts were good, but not this good. 

 

1.) AKG K240 Sextett LP(Brainwavz HM5 pads): This is easily the most grain-free and cleanest sounding headphone I have ever owned. Pitch black background. Everything else I have sounds grainy in comparison. It's the first headphone I have owned that doesn't bother me in any way at all sonically. It's well extended in the treble and it does have sub-bass, though the bass is quite balanced and has an unique presentation. Has enough bass for electronic genres and is a genre master. Exceptional 3D positioning, huge soundstage, and very detailed. Unique sound signature takes some adjustment. A beast to drive, extremely revealing, and very picky.

 

2.) Sennheiser HD 650

 

3.) Beyerdynamic DT 150

 

4.) Sennheiser HD 600

 

5.) AKG K712 Pro

 

6.) Sennheiser HD 545
