Also, don't mean to derail the topic, but I noticed you had previously owned the Ath-A900x. What's your opinion of those vs the DT 880s? I know as they are closed their soundstage and imaging won't be as impressive, however I'd like some nice closed clans that have a similar sound to the DT 880s.
Actually, for a closed DT 880 I REALLY recommend the ATH W1000x, it's the headphone closed headphone I like the most. It's... very simmilar but alittle different from the DT 880
The Ath A900x is more like the DT 990, slighty exxagerted bass and treble. IF you can afford it, go for the W1000x, then Mod it. Otherwise if you can't I found the Sound Magic HP 100s to be the closet to the DT 880, I enjoyed them very much and for $200 new, I think they are a steal
That said, the ATH A900x is a nice closed compliment to the DT 880, the W1000x is a whole new monster compared to the A900x.
Still again, for a closed DT 880 go W1000x or HP 100. Aditionally, I'm actually getting the Schiit Vali for my W1000x :3
