So I've been the happy owner of a pair the Audio Technica's mentioned above for some time now. A HUGE thank you to everyone on the boards that helped guide me to that decision. I have absolutely loved the headphones since purchase.
That said, I think it's time for me to get another pair of cans that are "the next step up" or at least a somewhat linear move. I'm keeping the AD2000's, no question about that, but I think my ears are ready for another treat.
What I've been looking at are the following:
Sennheiser HD700 (or 800's?)
HiFiman HE-5 LE
AKG K702 or Q701 (step down perhaps?)
Beyerdynamic T70 or T90
I hear the Audeze LCD2's are supposed to be great for electronic music (what I listen to mostly), but they just look like monstrous beasts in my eyes - maybe some day I'll get over that and pick up a pair.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
There are also a some other modded T50RPs that's worth taking a look at.
Also: Q701's, HD650, HE-500
The list can go on.
