I'm just looking for something interesting to get...
I have around... 250$?
I currently own the beyer t5p with a fiio e17 amp.
Not sure what I should go for or save it up and buy a nice home pair. Right now I'm using my t5p for everything including portable use. I tried the k701 at a show and didn't like them that much. I was thinking maybe the pro700mk2 so I can indulge in bassy songs every once in a while.
Hard to believe that you're not satisfied with the T5p. Though I've yet to try those personally, they've been getting stellar feedback from more or less every credible reviewer on the Net. Anyway, yeah, if you don't mind sacrificing a bit of midrange, then the A-Ts are brilliant for bass-oriented songs. In point of fact, they're so dang dark that even prog rock end up sounding a bit hip-hop. Then again, that could just be me shying away from bass again.
Also, you can quite literally feel vibrations from the PRO700 MKIIs when listening to music, even at relatively safe volume levels. My only complaint (not related to SQ) is that they're a bit uncomfortable to wear for extended periods. Sound isolation is good, but I forget exactly how it does with imaging and sound stage. Bit wide, from what I remember, but my memory of it's sketchy at best.
How well does the T5p pair with the Fiio?
