Mid-Centric Headphones? - Page 2post #16 of 2211/15/12 at 3:08pmHP200 leak as they are open back, vs SE535 they are more neutral with more detail, much better highs and not as thick a tone.

HD598 meets all your requirements. I have yet to hear any headphone that has as good of a midrange as the HD598.
