Why is it that there isn´t headphones which would have great bass, great mids and great treble? It´s always one or the other. :(
When you´re in a professional studio with a great room, speakers and sub, you can hear EVERYTHING clearly. The treble is clear and bright, mids are clear, bass is big and controlled. With headphones always some area is lacking. :(
HD800 = Bass sucks (the lack of it), clear and detailed treble, but too hyped so too bright for me, made my ears hurt physically.
T1 = Great detailed, bright and smooth treble, love it! Lacking also with bass, but not so much as the HD800. Also great mids with these. Great all arounder, except the bass!!! :(
LCD-2 = Great bass (but could be even better, a bit muddy), but still the best bass I´ve heard with headphones so far. Good treble, but a bit recessed so not very detailed, especially the upper mids, little too soft for my taste, but overall still a great headphone for enjoying music, not so good for mixing.
D7000 = Great bass also, more bass than LCD-2, huge impact, but maybe not as controlled as the LCD-2 and also a bit muddy. Fun bass. :) But that´s about the only good side of these headphones. Mids are severely lacking. Treble is there, but it´s harsh and "dirty", not very pleasant to listen.
So T1 and LCD-2 are my favorites even with their shortcomings, I guess there are no perfect headphones... or are there?
Is LCD-3 or Stax SR-009 my next step along with amp upgrade??? (´Cause I´m running out of choises!) How would you describe these headphones, are they the missing link in my search for the GREAT FULL SOUND???
