I was pretty set on getting the Q701's with a E09k but after seeing the price here in Canada for the rs2i's, it doesn't seem a lot more considering it won't need a powerful amp. Which would suit me better? (Sr325i would also be an option)
Initially I thought Grado's were my favorite headphones but now I'm not sure. I had to mod my sr80i's considerably to like them as the piercing treble and lack of bass got to me but after months of tweaking them to get the right sound I was quite satisfied. Lacked soundstage though.
I had bought a Samson sr850 as well but I hated them initially. After a huge burn in period I absolutely adore these and prefer them to the sr80i's for the music I listen to. I loved the soundstage on these and felt it had a good balance. The bass was near perfect in amount and fast(just how I like it), any more bass and I would hate it. I tend to dislike warmer sounding headphones. I like how it renders guitars as well.
I prioritize clarity, detail and soundstage to everything else.
I wanted to step up the sound to something better so would the q701's be my best bet? I plan on doing the bassport mod to them. I'm worried if they are musical enough.
Genre's I listen to are classical, progressive/death/power/symphonic/folk metal and rock.
Thanks in advance :)
