Open HP recommendations please . $4-500 range, Good Bass Slam , Not Dark (anti-HD650)

Can you please recommend HP's which fit the Thread Title criteria. I tried HD650's but they were too dark for me. I have the AH-D5000 & love them, so was basically looking for a similar sound in an open can.

Philips fedilio x1

The x1's sounded a bit dark to me when I tried them, so I don't think those would do you good. If you have an amp/DAC I'd say the DT990/600. I haven't heard the D5000's, but the D2000's sounded similiar to the 990's with a heavy but detailed bass response, slightly recessed mids, and a north of neutral treble that evens itself out a bit after a while while still having a bright quality to it.

Thanks for the recommendations. I have a Schiit Lyr. When you say 600, do you mean HD600 ? Also I listen mostly to Electronic music (trance) & Rock.

By 600 I mean the 600 ohms version of the DT990's.

Does the HE 400 have  better highs than the HD650 ?

The DT880's are more neutral where the the DT990's have a more V-shaped sound signature.

Do  the DT 990's have a comparable sound-stage to the HD650's ? The only thing I liked about the HD650's was their sound-stage.

No, not tried the HE 400.

DT990’s bass will slam your head into the wall smily_headphones1.gif They are much more exciting than 650’s. Also look into Beyerdynamic T90 — more refined sound than DT990, slightly less bass, more resolution.
