I first bought the Denon1000s about 7 years ago with a tiny little Airhead amp. After a while I wanted to try an open headphone and the AKG702 was recommended for its price point. The AKG's were much more detailed than my Denons, but they lacked any bass impact at all. I tried them on a friend's WooAudio WA6, but that didn't really change the bass all that much. I even tried VSonice GR07's, but I get uncomfortable having IEMs stuffed inside my head. I sold my AKGs and want to buy another headphone that has a lot of detail like my AKGs and lots of punchy bass like my Denons. I realize the biggest difference is that these are closed versus open, so I'm leaning towards closed headphones.
I've researched a little bit about Ultrasone Pro 900s and the ATH W1000x. The ATH W1000x seems like a leading candidate. Are there any other open headphones with really punch bass like a closed headphone? Are there any closed headphones that have a wide soundstage and really detailed sound?
price: Less than $600
Usage: home desktop only
Amp: Will buy a solid state amp together with headphones. I'll get whatever impedance matches these headphones. (separate budget and prefer solid state to tube amps)
Thanks ahead of time for any advice.
