Hey Head-Fi'ers

You see, I recently bought some Sony MDR 1R's that sound pretty darn good. If I had any complaints, they would be with the soundstage and comfort but overall they're some pretty good cans. Now I'm looking for something to complement them, so I've found some open cans that should sound pretty good, and I just want some opinions. They don't have to be long, you can just use the poll, I'm just looking for some help.

These will be amped by a Fiio E11, and the source is an ipod 4g or galaxy player 5.0.

I like mainly:
Rock- mainly j/rock (FLOW is an example of a band)
R&B- Neyo, Bruno Mars
Hip Hop- Just Lupe Fiasco, that's it
Other- Pop, Soundtrack (Hans Zimmer), maybe some piano stuff

Sound Sig: I EQ the MDR 1R's bass down like 3db, or keep it flat, and eq the treble up 4-6db. The DT770 pro 80s have too much bass. I love treble!


Thanks Guys!

EDIT! I forgot to ad the AD900x to the poll.
Oh and I'm recycling an older thread i used before, so don't worry about the previous posts.
