Hi! I'm selling my HE-400 because the bass is too weak for my tastes, and now I need a replacement.
Ive been doing some research, and LCD-2/Fostex seems like the way to go.
Someone said you pay alot for the pretty wood on TH-900, and that the drivers on the TH-600 are essentially the same.
I'm looking for a pair to use for all genres, and I will be wearing them very much, so I don't want anything too tiring or uncomfortable.
What do you guys think? LCD-2, TH-900 or TH-600?
My dac/amp is Schiit Modi and Magni, I dont think i will replace them anytime soon. Ive been told that will work with LCD2; dont know about fostex's (?).
Here are my musical tastes and a sample playlist:
Scores/soundtracks, many dub/dnb derivatives, and all kinds of eletronic music really. Also im a sucker for female vocals.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs__1a1gbPo <- probably my favourite track
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8nYBqPRNKw <- really shait without good bass, flat and boring on HE-400. TDK BA200 handles it -pretty- well. Bass could be even stronger though.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3XzBhZqWMo <-- epic on HE-400 when played loudly enough -- though a good example of where i would really love some more punch; specifically on the bass/drum beat in the background, i really wish it was thicker. Not necessarily louder, just more thick and round sounding. That delicious bass underneath the saw after the drop too (2:55), i want it to shred my ears more.
