seeing that you've already heard both px200ii's and hd238's I have a question, how does the drums and cymbals on px200ii's compare to the 238's? I have the 238's and I like them compared to my px100ii's(which i'm planning to sell to buy px200ii). px100ii's mids sound incredibly FAKE on high pitched male voices, my god they make james labrie(Dream Theater) sound so homo!
I really like how the 238's render cymbals, that's the first thing I noticed from it then the guitars are nice too. good for rock.
do px200ii's work well for rock? I mainly listen to classic and prog rock (led zep, queen, pink floyd, dream theater, vai)
I have not heard the PX100-II unfortunately so I can't be sure but if you like the way the HD238 does mids and treble, the PX200-II is probably not for you. The 238 is thicker-sounding and blended better which works well for vocals. The PX200 is more separated and also has crisper cymbals which you may not like either. The two headphones are really quite far apart on the sound spectrum despite being portable Senneheisers priced around the $90 mark so if you really like the HD238 - stick with it. Maybe try amping it.
