But which headphone out there is GREAT with anything you can throw at it? Is there such a headphone?

Loving this thread so far.


From what I've tried so far, D7000 is a great all-arounder. I had PRO 900s but I sold them (with sadness but I know I will only listen to one pair and all kinds of music) since I got D7000. It's a bit bassy, which you cannot not have when listening to eletronica but has an awesome sound all around. I can say in confidence that it's a noticeably better all-arounder than M50.

How do the Pro 900s sound with other genres?

I am considering the D7000 for my next headphone upgrade. The Pro 900's aren't quite as good when listening to rock/metal which I also listen to quite a bit of, and if the D7000 are better all rounders and still great at electronic music then they would be great for me.

I agree with this, I used to use SA-5000's and I use A2000X's now which should be similiar to the AD2000, however I think the A2000X are better for synthetic and electronic sounds.

 

I listen to a lot of electronic music, such as this stuff http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/564556/synthpop-ebm-dark-electro-gothic-rythmic-noise-experimental-chiptune-appreciation

 

Like tvrboy says, the bass on the SA5k and AD2000 / A2000X is fantastic, but it's quite rolled-off to accentuate the highs more.

 

 

I'm a bit curious about Ultrasone, which model has the most bass? In case I wanted an extra basshead headphone for trance and hardstyle or whatever sometimes.
