Hey fellas. Okay so I've been searching all over this forum and I've come to the conclusion of either getting the HD650s or the HE-400. Yes I know they've been compared again and again but every thread just gets contradicted by another thread. One will say the HD650 has better refined sound with competent bass while others will say the HD650s are anemic in the bass region. Then another will say the HE-400 isn't as refined in the upper-end compared to the HD650 while others will say they're better.
I'm coming from the Sony MDR-v6 which are also called flat and bass anemic and I think they're pretty adequate. I like their sound but I would like more detailed bass and better vocals and sparkle.
My question is, which one is better for EDM if I'm looking for an experience like I am at a live rave. Great accurate bass with stunning female vocals and sparkly highs? I mostly listen to old-school Trance mostly, Above & Beyond / OceanLab, Armin van Buuren, Kyau & Albert, Markus Schulz, Solarstone. I also do some occasional listening to rock like The Rolling Stones.
I'm planning on the following set-ups:
Laptop > ODAC > Bottlehead Crack > HD650
Laptop > ODAC > ??? > HE-400
