So, I will admit it is a ton of fun to have people comment in your thread much more than in others , but I wan't to bump my thread now that I have new experiences, and have done more research on google and head-fi.
Many people pointed me to the pro 900 and the W5000 and I am very interested in both. I feel I will sell my pro 750 and get the pro 900 and still look for another headphone to replace the rest of my open headphones.
The ultrasone pro 750 have something special, and very musical about them, but hearing an open can after using them for weeks at a time is like a breath of fresh air. The macro detail and dynamics in the pro 750, at this point in my career are unmatched. The SA5K after lots of AB is still much quicker and detailed over all. They have different ideas about tonality. Pro 750 tends to be very musically correct, while SA5K is PHD correct. Both are enjoyable and have replaced anything else I listen to as a duo.
The W1000x is on my watch list, the W5000 is too but I am wondering if it is more to do with how sexy they are, as opposed to what I have been told. Speed and detail and soundstage are supposedly great, but ultrasone has left me with a newfound desire of quality, audible bass.
In no order
D5/7000 -may have too much bass
W1000x - if is as good as the w5000 or better let me know
W5000 - if it beats the SA5K in enough categories to warrant getting, and > than w1000x
T1 - skylab and macedonian hero speak very highly of this can... seems to be quite a nice blend.
I would like to get the HD 800, but I will save that for a better source and amp in the future... hopefully the price will go down.
Are all fighting to claim my soul mate to the pro 900 I will inevitably be buying. It would replace the HD600/K702/SR325i/(SA5000 if possible)
If people could chime in again with their two cents, now that I have narrowed it down a bit, I would be very grateful.
And, like the title, please, no grados.
