So let me get this straight

 

You have a choice of three different cans.

 

A balanced, bright and then a warm can.

 

...

 

So what's your:

 

Price range

preferences of a headphone.

 

With your choices, I would turn to more of a balance can. Denon, because shure and ultrasone would be kinda of a let down to your genres.

Price range: bellow $150

preference: bass like the akg518 but brighter and bigger soundstage. is that possible?

 

do you have other recommendation?

 

thank you

No

 

When you want bass, the soundstage lacks and then treble gets drowned out

 

Go for the Denon

Doesn't seem to be the case for Ultrasone.

Given the effectiveness of S-Logic in the HFI-580, the soundstage is very good, excellent even, for a closed headphone. Treble-wise, Ultrasone sure has a hell lot of sparkle.

Okay, um...

 

A "boom" would be, as stated, a boom. As in, the bass would sound like a "DHOOOOOMM"

 

A "thump" on the other hand, would sound like a "TOOOMP"
