*shrug* Well you've got an IEM category, and buds pretty much always have more refined and noticeable presentations, so it only makes sense, really.

So happy to see FXT90 and some other JVC models on the list. Not a big fan of soundstage but the depth on the 90s really bring my music library to life

The JVC DX700 should be on the short list. Even if it had been an open design, I'd still be impressed. For a closed headphone it's amazing.

I've seen pics of the DX1000 but I didn't know there was also a DX700.  I added it.

 

Also the Fostex TH600 and TH900.

Hi,

I've been wondering which one to purchase, whether it's Senn HD600 or ATH AD900x. I am going to use the headphones to accompany me in my illustration-making job, play games, watching animes, and listening to lots of songs with female vocalists. I am looking for a headphones with top comfort ,since i am going to use them hours a day, and has a nice sound stage to make movies more enjoyable. I like the way ATH AD W1000 sounds like but i don't have enough budget to purchase that headphones so i guess i'll stick with something i could afford for now. Wonder if you guys could help me pick one. My budget is around $300-$400. I got advice to purchase AD900x when compared to HD598, but suddenly HD600 appears in my local retailer and now i am pretty much at lost as someone told me to purchase HD600 instead AD900 or HD598 as it's best both of them.

The AD900x and HD600 should be quite different sounding. 

 

The HD600 should be darker, warmer, bassier, etc. while the AD900x should be lighter and arier with a bigger sounding soundstage.  The HD600 probably has more emphasis on male vocals while the AD900x has more female vocal emphasis.  Movies might be more enjoyable on the HD600 if it has a thicker sound with more bass.  Comfort is subjective, but both should be pretty good.  The HD600 will have more clamping pressure, while the AD900x will be lighter but with the "3D wing" headband system, which some people seem to dislike. 

 

Best option of course would be to try them both.  If you can't do that then read reviews of both of them and see which ones sounds like it would be a better fit for what you want.

I have the FXD70 and CKS1000. While I never really thought that the FXD70 had a particularly large soundstage, I do feel that the CKS1000 is a soundstage-whore's delight :)

I agree. The FXD series are a little source dependant when it comes to soundstage as well. Not super large, but well defined with good imaging, but still a lot better in the stage department than the EPH-100 that was on the list. EPH-100 have pretty good separation of instrument though.
