The unlimited budget for fullsize headphones recommendation are Ultrasone Pro 2900, Ed8, Ed9, D7000, DT900(600 Ohm), T1 and Sony SA5000 but these headphones need AMPs help. Also universal IEMs for Trance, EX1000, Westone 3, SM3, EX7550, Sennheiser IE8, MTP Gold, EX600 and GR07. BTW some custom IEMs are rival to fullsize headphones like JH13Pro/16Pro+JH-3a, Westone ES5, Um Miracle.

If you want overall rich details in music with good bass response (goes deep but tight) then EX1000 are very good balanced IEMs with wide soundstage. But if you want big punchy bass(adjustable) with good details and wide soundstage then IE8 are perfect fit.

The EX1000s go low enough, but it's bass is controlled it isn't accented like in the IE8.

You could try the Westone 3s

Ah, been a while since I've seen this question pop up yet again. tongue.gif

 

I'd honestly strongly recommend the Zo amp. If it's bass you're after, you will never look back, trust me. As an avid and exclusive trance/EDM enthusiast, I've been through nearly every top tier, only to find which sounds best to these ears. While the EX1000 reigned supreme when all was said and done, I wish I had the Zo back when I had the entire hoard of top tiers. It quite literally changes the experience altogether. If you search around a bit, you'll come to find that it's one of the very few hi-fi purchases here at head-fi that isn't at all considered hype, but lives up to its name above expectations. The second version is due out soon, but I personally could never do without the Zo. It's best paired with bass-light to bass-moderate earphones, and not the ones which are quite obviously already bass-heavy. I've yet to hear anything better for trance than the EX1000 paired with the Zo. Then again, the EX1000's signature had me at hello. YMMV my friend, but rest assured, I too was in your shoes, and the Zo had me running. smile.gif

 

P.S. From the IEM's I've come to own, I've found that there's many competent top tiers fit for trance, ranging from $150+. Even still, it's difficult to say which of those is best fit for anyone since each one varies in presentation, and hence falls on personal preference. All the best my friend.

As a trance and chillout listener, I would say go for the Future Sonics Atrio's. Trance and Chillour have a lot of sub-bass which you will get a FANTASTIC feel for with the Atrio's. The bass notes are very well controlled and the mids and highs are exactly where you would want them, without any sibilance or harshness.

 

With trance, I feel the combo of sub-bass, deep-tight-controlled bass along with chimes, piano and female vocals of the Atrio's is what kept bringing me back to the Atrio's and I have been using them ever since, which was about 4 years ago!!!

 

Update: forgot to mention, Jazz type trance and chillout are great with the Atrio. Saxaphones and double-bass sound awesome!

If the MG5 strikes your interest, wait until you hear the MG7. And yes, I've owned both. smile.gif
