I've got 2 questions. Is there any coloration in sound of ESP 950? & Is there any warmness in the sound, like the sound of HD600?
Thanks in advance

People keep calling the HD600 as warm. I disagree with this. I don't think it's warm. I would describe it as smooth and laid back because of the slightly rolled off treble. But it doesn't have an overly warm presentation and I would call it neutral. I think people call it warm because it isn't as clinical as the DT880 (and others), so it seems warm in comparison.
I guess we all hear things differently.
After reading tons of threads/reviews here and there, If I want to conclude briefly:
Sub-bass:HE400>DT880>ESP950 & HD600
Warm to Cold:HD600>HE400>ESP950>DT880
Instrument Separation:HE400>DT880 & HD600
Is there anything wrong in my personal conclusion?
Really? Can you tel me some of my mistakes, please? I've only heard DT880 & HE400.
And which do you prefer? These are the very 2 phones I'm considering upgrading to from my HD598s - http://www.head-fi.org/t/641390/disappointed-with-my-sennheiser-hd598s-thoughts-about-this
