First, forgive my English, I'm Italian.
After years of loyal service I have to replace my beloved Yuin Ok2.
I tried in the past month several types of headphones:
- HiFiMan Re-400 waterline...is very microphonic and, when I walk, footsteps echoing in my head <- (I had this "problem" in past with a IEM Denon...probably is a generic effect of the IEMs on me);
- JVC HA-S500B...muddy sound, unrefined imho;
- Sennheiser MX-985...too much bass that fatigue my listenings and that cover mids & highs; some recordings sound very bad with them (e.g. Husker Du - Zen Arcade, Jesus Lizard - Goat...).
My listenings ranging from classical to metal, through the new-age and jazz (I'm a musical omnivore), so I need a good all-rounder.
Currently my dap is an indestructible Sansa Clip; in the near future, unless Sandisk will not produce a Sansa 24/96, I'll go on something like Ibasso dx50.
I was thinking of buy back the Ok2 or replacing with the PK1 (more or less the same price, but no idea how PK1 sound).
Any suggestions? :D
