I both love and dislike my K701 at the same time.. When it comes to details, clarity and soundstage they are truly amazing, but at the same time I experience the sound to be a bit cold and emotionless.
I've been using them for about 150-200h now, but the more I listen to them the more I realise that I find myself "analysing" the music rather than actually enjoying it, its like the music isn't affecting me emotionally. And it doesn't matter what music I'm listening to, it feels the same way with everything.
So now I'm considering changing them for something with more warmth/musicality and perhaps a bit more bass impact.(And also something with a more comfortable headband ).
Though I still want something with lots of detail, good clarity and a decent soundstage.
And I still want a high quality bass that isn't bloated/muddy/exaggerated. I want a detailed, fast and deep bass, just with a bit more physical impact than the K701's.
I can also mention that I have a quite mixed taste in music, so I need something that works well with everything.
I mainly listen to pop, rock, trance, techno, new age, folk, acoustic, orchestral and classical music.
So, wich cans would you guys recommend?
I've been looking a bit at both Denon AH-D2000 and Beyerdynamic DT990 wich both seem to fit my demands quite well. Any opinions on these two?
Do feel free to recommend other cans as well though!
I should also mention that I have a Matrix M-stage, so I want a pair of cans that work well with it since I really don't feel like getting a new amp .
