I am looking at the headphones from the poll below and I know a little about them and tested some of them out very very briefly. What I am looking for is to pick one headphone from the list that is best. To me the best headphone would be one that is very detailed and can work well with any genre. I listen to all genres especially jazz, rock, electronic and hip hop. I don't care about looks or comfort. I am not the biggest fan of the hd800s but I'm willing to be convinced. Another possibility would be to get a can from this list that is not so bass forward but is still an amazing headphone such as the hd800s and the t1 and t5p and etc. and get also get a cheap headphone for just hip hop such as the v moda m 100s and the beyerdynamic custom one pros. However if I did hath I would need to buy one of the cheaper cans from this list such as the he500s. My next question is how do the custom ones and m100s fit compared to other cans in the price range. And does the beyerdynamic custom one's base changer make the bass less tight and detailed
Sorry vut my final question is do any of these headphones mentioned make good music producing cans. I forgot to point out that I don't care about open or sealed and these headphones will be mostly for home use.

Thank you for the help

My question is confusing. I rephrased it: which headphone is best for people who listen to all genres?

I have the 7100 and the T1 and find the T1 to be a very good hi-end all-rounder with the right amp. I just got an Onkyo integrated amp in for some insight into the Onkyo house sound and was blown away when I plugged the T1 in it. The bass quantity and quality was insanely good, almost as much rumble as my D7000. My Asgard couldn't do this to the T1, not even close. The Onkyo amp also controls the T1's treble quite nicely, not nearly as much sibilance as with the Asgard. The 7100, while very good with mainstream music, is not so brilliant with classical and instrumentals - the sound stage, albeit wide, is too 2D-ish and lags behind the T1 by a bit.

 

I'd have kept the amp if this sucker didn't weight 23 Ibs though (it drives speakers after all), planning to return it and get something else less heavy.

Thanks but wouldn't you think the t5p is a better option as it is very similiar to the t1 but it has some extra base for hip hop as it is a sealed can? I'm not a basshead at all. And the t5p might be a better buy than the t1 because isn't easier to drive?
