I've been loving my Tera Player (neutrally tuned) and my Aurisonic AS-2's (Also tuned quite neutral) and the combination of them is amazing. If the OPer wants me to collect a few names of additions, I'd happily help. 

so would i 

 

the Objective 2 AMP is the most nutral amp out there for the money, it can drive things almost up to the lcds 2 can fit in your pocket as its a protable amp

if you can pay 15 euros more, there is german maestro gmp 8.35d monitor. 165 euros, check it out, these are kind of hidden diamonds of this range.

 

edit: also check krk kns8400 if gmp 8.35d is over your budget. kns8400 is more affordable.

 

both would make really happy trust me.

Ok. So i don't know what club I Belong to. I like music with all the instruments that when you pay attention, you can count how many different instruments there are. But I emphasize tight neutral bass, and I love crisp clear. There are trebles with electronics system. I want to hear it crisp and clear.

So what club do I Belong to...? please help me

So far I can only find two things that I like.

Koss porta pro, and my home stereo.

Is there better headphones than porta pro? I want it open type, and portable. Thanks

It's one of the most neutral headphones I've ever heard.  David Solomon has a good description of it here (http://www.head-fi.org/t/634201/battle-of-the-flagships-58-headphones-compared-update-audeze-lcd-2-revision-2-6-4-13#user_SRH1840)

Please remove some from the list a couple that aren't neutral: SRH840 is V-shaped (and I actually like it) and CD900ST is bright (and I don't so much). Also, I'm not sure which Ultrasones are supposed to be neutral (not the ones I've heard).

Consider adding the new Focals, if you've heard them and think they are. (I haven't yet.)
