Setup is AKG K701's and Asus Xonar STX. Listen to metal, thrash metal and similar.
After owning the 701's for over 2 years Ive recently found myself thinking something is missing in the mid range - guitar work seems pretty 'far back' and not in your face like they are with some cans or IEM's, I dunno if that makes any sense, its just lacking something I crave and I think thats whats missing. My music taste has changed somewhat in 2 years and I dont listen to rap anymore so bass isnt a problem, although wouldnt want anything less than my K's.
What could I move to next?
Grado's arent really to my taste I dont think; Have Heard HF2's and GS1k's and I didnt like the 'sound signature'. Beyer Dt880's and 770 Pro's were great but Im not sure I like closed cans. Saying that I listened to some Denon AH-D7000's and they had a custom cable in them and I thought they were the business.
Budget. I dunno. Loosley speaking....£200
