It´s a great allrounder just like the GHP and Head One. Haven´t tested the SA5000 on it yet though. The LCD-2 is what is getting the most head time and what this comparison focuses on as reference.
I feel it´s more comparable to my Goldpoint Headphone Pro then the Head One though..
Head One have some advantages in the mid range where my solid states is slightly better in the bass department primarily. Impact is similar on both but the bass is ever so slightly wetter on the Head one then on the solid states.
Listening to some Vangelis late night and my solid states was preferrable to the Head One. Listening to open your ears and stuck in a moment the Head One performs better to give some examples. I will land with one solid state and the Head One I believe but I am not sure which solid state.
GHP and V200 behave very similar though the GHP and Head One has perhaps slightly more body and have a somewhat darker signature then the V200. Could toss a coin really but seeing the V200 is much more expensive I suspect it will go together with my Auditor.
