So like the title says I am trying to choose between these three.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Reasons... Well I think I need to stop buying headphones and  I was going to get the SENNHEISER HD 8 Dj to write to and I need some excitement but detail/clarity as well. I figured I would skip it and go for one of these and be done for a while especially since 830 is my limit.. I am getting excited even typing this. Below are my priorities in exact order:

 

1. BASS: not just a tiny bit north of neutral like a 7520 or mt220 or something but BASSHEAD LEVELS and not sloppy. The more the merrier. 

2. TRANSIENT RESPONSE/ATTACK: I want it to punch and kick and slap and all that!!!

3. DETAIL: really important to me as the little details pluck the imagination strings of my creativity.

4. IMAGING: I dont want it to sound all melted together and would like the positioning to be worthy of the price.

5. MIDS: I don't mind them falling behind the bas a tiny bit but I still want to enjoy them

6. SOUNDSTAGE: just not congested slightly above your decent 300 dollar headphone is fine.

7. TIMBRE: real as possible

8. HIGHS: I can turn down the highs and tolerate brightness but I would prefer the least sibilant or essy one(reason it is 8 is because this is preferred but least important).

 

Feel free to help me by just using the numbers and commenting accordingly ie The dido does #1 really well but not 7 so well etc..

 

I will greatly appreciate any and all help.. :D

 

Thanks

what I listen to.. (bass here isnt that tight to begin with):

below is not really what I listen to as much but I figured it would show some good bass for test

I haven't heard the Dido but Hope is definitely better than TH600.

And of course, TH900 is significantly better than TH600.

i would have jumped straight for the th900 if I could afford it.

The only one I've tried has been the Dido of course, but question, why not include the Ultrasone Signature DJs?

I believe that they are the best "basshead" headphone I have tried yet and it is a TRULY closed-back headphone (i.e. no leaking like the Denon/Fostex) and I do prefer it over the Didos.

I cant afford them... I need to look for a good price on them.

Got it.

Sent you a PM for an option you can check out.

 

Regarding the Final Audio ones, I'm just concerned about comfort...

for some reason I have only had a couple of headphones that the comfort bothered me. I am not picky there.

There are some ways to get around the comfort level for the Pandora Hope. We can chat offline on this if you get one.
