Does the 950 have any of the forwardness in the upper mids that the 303 has? How is its midrange tone?
Also, isn't the LNS basically the precursor to the SR-404, and is very similar if not essentially the same?
The E90 amp does make sense to me if only because it can run off a battery pack. There need to be some (trans)portable alternatives to the SR-001.
Oh, and nice review!
ESP/950 is forward but not in a way SR-303 is, it's a much more balaced headphone. The tone is very natural and seems correct in all aspects. The only thing is that ESP/950 is somewhat aggressive in it's presentation, and has a bite to it's sound, it is not laid back and is forward across the sound spectrum.
LNS sound different from SR-303. It's very polite and does not have the bump in the mids and HF that Lambda Signature or SR-303 have.LNS FR
