so i recently upgraded to AD900 because wanted a little bit more bass presence than the AD700 i had. as it turned out, the AD900's mid range captured me, but a little too much, to top it off, the bass on AD900 seems weaker in volume than AD700. i guess i am really on the quest trying to find a set of can that has slight mid range brightness but not as much as AD900 but also not as recessed as AD700, at the same time has a bit more bass presence than AD700 and AD900 but not overwhelmingly overshadowing the rest of the frequency range. i also want the can to be open and have a larrrrggggee sound stage, since that's what i love about the AD700/900.
does such a can exist? are we talking HD600? or is there something around the $200 dollar mark.
as of now.. i think i might return the AD900 and look for something. i really tried to like my new AD900, but just couldn't. it's just too bright/forward, and too shy on the bass that for music, other than classical or instrumental, feel like skeleton (lack of weight). Don't get me wrong, on classical and instrumental recordings, AD900 is the best sounding i've ever heard. but it just doesn't fair well for the rest of the genre i listen to.
i listen to Rock, Jazz, some hip-hop, R&B, classical, trance and techno. so a little bit of everything.
