Mid-Centric Headphones? - Page 2

post #16 of 22
HP200 leak as they are open back, vs SE535 they are more neutral with more detail, much better highs and not as thick a tone.

Here are some requirements:
Open or Closed
Good Soundstage
Details
Mid-Upper or Lower
Comfort
I already have srh940, which I love, but I also want to test others.
Thanks!

 

Take any headphone, and equalize the bass and treble to just below the mid-range frequencies. Boom, instant mid-forward headphone.

 

Very best,

HD598 meets all your requirements. I have yet to hear any headphone that has as good of a midrange as the HD598. You can equalize a headphone to be  mid-centric but it won't sound quite the same (smoothness wise), have the same level of comfort, the perfect soundstage, etc. And equalizing does take a bit of time to learn properly.

Audio-Technica A/AD900 might do the trick.

How does the AD900 defer from 700 beside extension?
