i checked all lists of what i can get, and here is a list:

ultrasone edition 8

ultrasone signature dj

audio tehnica ath w5000

audio tehnica ath w1000x

audio tehnica ath w900xltd

ath a900x

akg k550

akg k272hd

ath ad900

denon ah-d7100

denon ah d5000

 

i wanted a sound that would be as close as possible to hd800 [i simply cannot them or other open back]. i read about every model listed here, almost all reviews that were posted around head-fi. cannot seem to bring myself to get an answer. One of the reasons i am limited to these models is the option to return them if i am not totally pleased. other options include warranty, which is pretty good if i don't buy from outside.

 

i am searching, basically for the best soundstage possible, treble, detail, separation, not forward mids, and not much bass. 

 

and for iems i can get either ie800 or akg k3003. 

 

EDIT::: i have not seen anybody mention anything about pandora hope VI. i have not even considered them, but it seems that i might be able to grab a pair of these, but likeways with most of what i have to choose, it will be without testing before buyinng, and return is a hassle. how is the soundstage?..

I would only offer a suggestion that you give the Alpha Prime from MrSpeakers a listen. I auditioned them at a recent HF meet and was impressed with their soundstage (head stage?) as well as sound. Though not open, they do have a couple of other characteristics that tend to help in this area: larger cup and the above average distance of driver from ear (thx to the wonderful Alpha Pads).

Like the HD800, it also have a massive soundstage. Not quite as big, but it is close, imaging is where the K812 trails behind the HD800. With the HD800, everything sounds like they are coming from the front, rather than sides. To me, it is the most speaker-like presentation headphone I've ever tried, and don't get me wrong, it also image sound coming from sides and rear brilliantly.

 

The only advantage the K812 have over the HD800 in regard to soundstage is its holographic presentation. It's quite hard to put into words, but the holographic presentation makes the K812 sounds more, much more natural than the HD800.

Hmm, I'm a hell of an AKG fan boy so I'll definitely check them out any chance i get (cant buy them though)

The lesser priced SRH940 would be in line with what you are describing.

It's hard to get a soundstage like the HD800 with a closed design but I recommend trying out TB Isone which improves depth and imaging remarkably.

That stuff is not a gimmick when finely calibrated.

The problem with the SRH940 is build.

Hey guys. Has any of you compared Ultrasone Pro 2900 to HD800? I love Ultrasone's S-logic. I'm so used to it now, everything else sounds, "claustrophobic" (if it makes any sense :-)
I'd love to try the HD800, but I cannot get one to try and it is a very pricey gamble to buy one.

if you have a good amp, hd800 has larger soundstage... and a good amp can be even fiio e12. just to have enough power. but hd800 in my experience, is just amazing.
