So currently I have the Sennheiser HD598 plugged into the Audioengine D1 as well I have the Schiit Magni and Modi in the mail to add to my desk. The HD598s are good and I really love how comfortable they are had have been using them non stop for the past 2 years but I feel like it is time to try something else out. With the HD598s I find myself a little disappointed when it comes to the bass and with my Audio-Technica M50s the bass seems a bit too strong so I guess I'm looking for a good middle ground with the mids and highs that i have come to love from my HD598s. I have been looking around and I think I have found some contenders and I am open to some more my budget seems to top off around $350
What I have been looking at:
1) AKG K702 - Some questions that I have had about these are: Are they worth the upgrade to the anniversary edition? Do they have the bass that I am looking for? and How do they compare to the HD598s?
2) HiFiMan HE-400 - Some questions are: How do they feel after long use? and They seem very bulky does that affect you while wearing them? (maby the HE-500s?)
3) AKG K550 - So when it comes to these I really like the way they look the only problem I can see is that they are closed back sealed headphones and I wounder if that will be an issue.
4) Sennheiser HD600 - I guess my issue with these is I want to experience other brands you know "see the world" and going from Sennheiser to Sennheiser doesn't feel right.
I guess I would like some input from anyone and everyone because I'm having a rough time deciding.
