Yay, ordered the Sony MDR-MA900. They were discounted for 150 USD, incl. TAX and shipping... that was something I simply couldn't turn down :]
Now that I've sold my open rig [the HE-6 and associated equipment] I am trying to keep a minimalist approach :]
The W1000X are pretty good but I feel like the MA-900 will make a good complement as the W1000X are slightly bass heavy and I wanna have a neutral can too, where the MA900 seems to fit the bill.
I was contemplating the X1 too, but I am not sure I want a completely bass heavy headphone as I really like the mids and am kinda into sound-whoring and V-shaped cans tend to turn me off...
Still I'll consider the Phillips but there was no such deal on these, though 320USD incl. TAX is still pretty good but... they ain't going anywhere :D
Looking forward to the MA-900. Hope they'll be as good as I think :]
I just hope the vocals and highs are not recessed :P
I really hope the soundstage is big. I really miss the openness the HE-6 gave :/
