What are your thoughts about the DJ100?

Considering you can get them for $40 on amazon, they're amazing. They are surprisingly neutral sounding and also reveal quite a bit of detail. The slight treble roll-off also makes them much easier to listen to than my sr80i's.

Nice pair of headphones there Austin! How do you feel the HE-500's stack up against the Audeze cans?

The HE-500's consume the majority of the head time, they're better when it comes to clarity, detail extraction, instrumental seperation, and speed. The LCD-2's have a lusher midrange, with a more intoxicating signature. More 3D soundstage, better vocality, with deeper bass extension and slam.

Both headphones are equal sonically, but different flavors.

Wow, that is pretty high praise for the HE-500's. I have the HE-400's, and are absolutely loving them. I have been considering moving to the next tier, and getting either the HE-500's,. the LCD-3's, or the HD800's - unfortunately, here in Milwaukee, I can only find a place where I can listen to the HD800's.

Dont think the hd800 is a good choice for you...

Where are you finding HD800's in Milwaukee?

I'd have to agree with Angelo, at least from my listening to the HE line and the HD800. HD800 was too bright for me, which would be kind of the opposite of the HE-400s. Now, if you're wanting something to complement your current phones and be very different, then OK, but I think you'd prefer the HE-500s or LCD-3. I haven't heard the LCD-3, but the 2 was similar to the 500s. I agree with Austin's comments and would add that the LCD is smoother while the 500 is more detailed.

If you have the HE-400's, either the LCD-2 or HE-500 would suffice. The HD800 needs a potent amp and source to milk all of their potential fidelity, and if you get an LCD-3, you're paying (IMHO) the $1000 extra for that last 5% of audio improvement over the LCD-2. wink.gif
