I listen to 80% Trance genres for my edm, the rest between down tempo stuff and house
Well my good friend, what doesn't amaze me is that so many think all you need for EDM is a big bottom end. Over the TH600/900 I'd take the ATH-AD2000 any day of the week, and read up a bit and you might find that these are some of the best cans for EDM, period, as recommended by so many members over the so many years they have been out. I can't speak for the D7000 and DX1000 as I never heard them. Had a D2000, was weak in the midrange, that just doesn't work.
My tastes are in house, techno, electro, IDM, downtempo, ambient. I go for the sweet sounding pads/leads, out of this world textures of synths, and just good pacing of rhythm which is not easy to do. The DT770's I've never had an interest in, too much bass, and really I think for the OP it would be a lateral move instead of an upgrade. In his price range the senn hd-600's and the dt-880's are dead hard to beat, there is a reason why they are part of the trinity (k701, hd6x0, dt880) of headphones that get recommended over and over again.
As for the ms-pro's, sir, you just have no idea.
