So as the title says, I'm looking to broaden my horizon after having the K701 for a year and would be particularly interested in fellow K701 owners whom had upgraded/side-graded to something different.
Before full-size headphones I've mainly been using earbuds and IEM, started with cheap Sony buds then gradually audition high end IEM like Klipsch X10, Ulimate Ears 5pro, Triple Fi etc and finally ended my journey at the Westone UM2/UM3x for my portable listening, then I decided to build a desktop system and the setup I've got now is Asus Essences ST -> Burson HA160 -> K701 and I'm really satisfied with it. From my own research it would seem that if I were to go the upgrade path looking for the same revealing quality with large sound stage then I would end up at something like the HD800. But before jumping right down the deep end I think like my IEM journey it would be beneficial to try some different sound signatures to get a better feel of the sound I want, so what if I want to try something with more "fun", musical and more forgiving to poorer recordings as a compliment to the K701 then what headphones would be worth trying? My music is varied in genre though nothing in the rap, hip hop and R&B so I'm probably not looking at bass heavy cans. Also they nearly always involve female vocals, sometimes the occasional soundtracks. I'm thinking possibly a pair of Audio Technicas?
Any ideas appreciated :)
