Sorry to drag this one up from the dead, but I have similar questions.
I get a lot of mixed impressions on the AT woodies. Some people seem to say they have good bassiness, some people seem to think they are too slow and smooth for modern rock/pop, some people say they aren't bassy enough, etc. Everyone seems to agree they have the normal great AT mids.
I have the A900x and I love them, they currently are by far my favourite headphone that I have. I'm trying to buy some woodies to sample - the JVC Victor DX700, a Denon AH-D5000 and one of the AT woodies but I'm not sure if it's worth the comparison or if it's just too different from what I'm looking for.
At the Sydney meet I was able to listen tot he L3000 which I loved, and the W100 which I enjoyed but wouldn't buy if it was available. I do own the ESW9 which I find really rich and organic sounding but generally too dark for everday listening (I prefer my DT1350) so I'm not sure what I am likely to experience and don't quite want to drop the money on an another unknown.
Any more insight would be very appreciated.
