the linearity of the Ety's i just bought make my AD700s sound like crap. switching back and forth between them, the colorations are painfully obvious. so i need some flat fullsize cans.
one thing i considered are the AD900s, according to headrooms graph, they are much closer to flat then the AD700s, and the weird midrange colorations are reduced.
another consideration, DT880s, although they look slightly colored in the highs (brightness)
then theres the K701/2
HD600s look pretty linear, except the highs, while acceptably linear, "squiggle" all over the place.
i'm leaning more towards the beyers, AKGs or AD900s because i really would rather not buy an amp and i'm not sure what sort of output i'm going to get out of a 300ohm phone with an ipod.
anything else you can suggest?
point me in the right direction fellow head-fiers!
