why not take a look at the JVC DX-1000, i post a thread comparing them to the audeze's and you might find this helpful :
I got both but I'm currently without an amp capable of driving the audeze. So I have no way to do a fair comparison. I'm waiting for a tube to replace in my dna stratus. I can tell you though that right out of my icon hdp the dx1000 sounds just wonderful. It does some magic to my ears.The denon d7000 was my first love in this hobby and I still respect it, but in my opinion the jvc is clearly superior. I have no words to describe the bass, from memory I'd say I prefer it to the audeze's. When I have my amp back I will post more accurate impressions.
