if luck is on your side and your budget permits, an used kgss makes a good match. but once you have that, it will leave another things to be desired again
maybe spritzer or other stat mafia can chime in on how esp950 works with other amp be it third party or stax amp ? I only have experience with kgss on this particular headphone. ahhh, guess maybe its time for me to get another esp950. I miss it really.....regret selling it
Edit : just checked Amazon, I got it in the past about 2 years ago for 570 now its friggin 900!!!! Now this really makes me regret........
