Hello everyone. I'm new here, and first of all sorry for my somewhat bad English.
I'm 19 year old full time student, part time worker from Finland.
Ive been using Sennheiser HD650 with ORB Jade-1 for about 6 months now.
I like how comfortable HD650 are and the fact that i can listen them from early morning to late night, but i just want more! Not that i wouldnt like HD650 but i think there's this small "veil" which bothers me.
My budget is around 1000 euros.
The models i'm interested are Audeze LCD-2 and Sennheiser HD800. Unfortunately i dont have chance to listen them where i live. Ive been reading about both of these day and night and i've come to an understanding that HD800 is nothing like HD650. And i am kind of looking something like HD650. HD800 might be too bright? for my music taste.
Now about LCD-2 im scared about the uncomfortable part i'm reading. Would the Vegan ear pads help with this? I kind of want same kind of pads than in HD650. Is there improvement in soundstage from HD650 to LCD-2? I know that HD800 would be the winner in this part, but the brightness and harsh treble what everyone talks about scares me.
Also i hate excess bass, it just ruins the music for me. But i dont think this would be problem with either HD800 or LCD-2.
My music taste is fairly wide. I like: Electronic, Trip-Hop (Massive Attack), Ambient, Jazz, J-Rock/Pop, Soundtracks, Trance, Metal and Some vocaloid songs (some say that vocaloid with HD800 is painful experience)

Most of my music files are FLAC or 320kbps. And my listening sessions vary from 1 hour to 10 hours.
Its not cheap upgrade so i would appreciate some opinions and some insight from more experienced Head-fiers :3
