So Ive had dt770/80, xb700 and the ie8's.. i ditched the 770's a while ago because they just didn't hit the spot with regards detail/clarity.. sounded a bit blunt tbh.. then i switched to xb700 which were good for a while and then finally one day I tried my ie8's on the computer and despite them being IEM's the detail/clarity blew the rest out of the water, they were also a lot easier on my ears @ loud volumes.. they're nearly perfect for EDM, specially trance but as an IEM they just aren't as airy and natural sounding (like speakers) as i'd like them to be.. should I even bother trying to replace these at this price range? so im mainly looking for something with that sounds airy/detailed/decent bass/soundstage with depth (3D), but i'm afraid ill waste my money on a headphone that isn't going to match the ie8's detail/clarity... i was thinking akg k/167/267 or maybe even k701 or xb1000
Obviously I'd need an open headphone right? is there any with decent bass for EDM?
also.. im allergic to SIBILANCE!
