I currently own W1000X, K702, DT880 and TF10x6. I'm thirsty for even better headphones, but I really don't know what to buy.
I really like the mids and highs of W1000X, well defined and engaging. However, when it comes soundstage, I just feel W1000X doesn't cut it. It sounds a bit chaotic and congested from time to time.
K702 is way too non-engaging... I don't want another pair like it.. good for listening during study and work... but extremely boring for casual listening.
DT880 250ohm is about the sweet spot on soundstage and bass, but it's a bit warm and the mid is a bit recessed for me (sounds like mid is spilling over to the mid-bass?). Lacks a bit detail when called for compared to W1000X.
TF10x6... I'm not going to comment.. let's just say I'm no longer interested in IEMs.
All comments are made by comparing among the headphones I own and completely subjective.
I listen to mostly JPOP (all sorts of mix genre but mostly vocal centric,) classic, and movie OSTs (Hans Zimmer.) So basically everything other than bass centric music (I really dislike the modern American pop music.)
I'm not interested in amp/source upgrade for now, simply because they don't bring as much change to the table as headphones do.
My budget is $1000~1500. Shoot me some recommendations. Thanks!
