Depends on the type of music I think. Bassier, warmer cans are a bit more forgiving of electronic music as it can be a bit harsh.

I mostly listen to electronic these days, but I do like the other Genres as well. I was only half serious about selling my HE500s. It would take a lot for me to get rid of those, but man it would sure be nice to only have to bring one set of headphones around with me (I always bring my 500s and whatever Basshead Can I have at the time).

 

If the mids and highs are as good as people say it's a great possibility. I remember the Pro 900s had pretty good staging for a closed back. I didn't have any problem there. I'm sure the same will hold true in the DJ.

I also listen to electronic, some jazz and alt rock and also quite a bit of pop. I consider myself to be really fortunate to be able to afford hps >1000 range so I would do my best to contribute to this community if I get one so to enlighten those who are going to get a Ho in the price range because IMO it takes a lot of guts to spend abv 1k on a pair if hps. Now I just have to find my perfect Hp. Anybody can giv me a sig DJ freq response it would help a lot!

 I hear you Bro. It's a little nerve wracking, but if it works out it'll be worth it. I'm weary of trying out Headphones. I just want to get one I love and relax.  tongue.gif

YUP, I use it and I recommend the G3 as  a bass head hybrid tube. The boost is pretty nice I think.

Sadly if you boost alot you'll need to re bias ur tubes every 2 weeks or so.

well I'm up to $600 total e.e new can and new amp [the amp I acutally got for functionality as well]

 

Ath w1000x with L3000 Pads and a Matrix MStage V2, with upgraded power supply and volume knob. In addition it comes with 3 op amps

one laid back n big {op27 (u know the rest all those op2.... r warm I've found]}

one tight n warm [L4990]

one Lean and airy {l4970 HA or something]

 

So yea q.q I'm dwn to OMG BROKE, so I got just enough to pay me bills and as always I'm a moron for NOT saving my money up for an OMG emergancy! But the good part is all these cans and amps are rather reseallable SO I think of it as an investment!

 

But the w1000x will b here Monday, the SS amp will b here some time next week [I plan to use it with my tv's headphone out [SAD FACE] until I can upgrade to an optical in amp]

Oh gawd ofc, I could be a cigarette smoker, I could be an alchol drinker, I could be into extreme sports, I could be into WEED, but NOPE I'm into head phones! Yea I might drop an entire MONTHS paycheck on cans an amps but I'll have those for about 6 months b4 I buy anything else SO cost per day as well as overall enjoyment. It's a cheap hobby xD

Yup. The bass on the ES10 is full bodied, powerful (without being overbearing) and well controlled. I've heard many of AT's bassy cans, and the ES10 is certainly one of the most impressive. Another contender is the recently released WS99.

LCD-2 - Heavy Weight + More Midbass= Dream Cans! Hey bro PM me Ur no. If you don't mind and maybe we can chat over the phone. smily_headphones1.gif

EDIT: Does Electronic music have one note bass or is it just me not paying attention and apparently I'm still having a hard time figuring what Is bass texture......

 

Sure, I'll PM you so we can have a nice chat sometime. Hopefully, we will be able to take a trip down to Stereo soon. smile.gif

Ok, I am envious. But damn, that's a fine purchase. I'm sure you're going to enjoy them. If not, you can always approach Craigster for an RMA. biggrin.gif
