The Perfect Headphones? (no this ISN'T a "I need suggestions" thread)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

If you guys can mix certain qualities of different headphones and put them together to form what you think is the perfect headphone, What qualities from which headphones would you put together?

 

For me it would be

The looks and size of the phiaton ms400:

The isolation of the sennheiser hd25:

The all metal build quality (just replace the plastic parts on the phiaton) and one sided replaceable cable of the beats pro:

and finally the same sound quality as the Phiatons but with a much larger soundstage and better highs.

Take a very neutral reference headphone

add a slightly laid back, smooth, rich sound

yet somehow also mid forward 

easy to drive

priced under $200

Give me something that sounds like the Stax SR007 mk1 (or if the new Stax C32 is that amazing, go with that) in a form factor that I can take anywhere and is easier to drive than having to build a BH or a KGSSHV or a T2 which could kill me in the process.  Oh and make it somehow portable and I'll be all over that even if I have to sell off my kidneys and my first born son--maybe on the kidney evil_smiley.gif

The perfect headphones would be implanted surgically

It should also have noise canceling that could cancel out your thoughts.

Soundstage? The bass would vibrate your entire body.

You'll also never go deaf at any volume.

Your headphones could also befriend you during times when you're lonely and be more comforting than even your mother.
