I've got a pair of MarkL modded D2000s that I've had for a while now and love, and I'm thinking of getting an open headphone to complement them. Budget is $500.
My music tastes are pretty varied, from classical to punk to indie/alternative to metal to folk. I'll be running them out of my Mini-i, with potentially an Asgard or similar down the road.
Sonic tastes: I love the D2000s and their bass to death, but I also really like my DT1350s and GR07s, which are much more balanced (though still with great bass extension). So I guess I like my bass deep, but not necessarily huge. I don't like Grados in the least. The treble is just too harsh for me. I like vocals a lot, so smooth mids are important.
Some things on the list: HD650 (worried they'll be too similar to the D2000s), HE400 (same worry as HD650, but intriguing because orthos), K/Q701/702/712 (haven't had a chance to hear them, and they seem to be really polarizing; not sure if they'll be to my taste - are the 712s any different?), DT880 (will the treble be too bright for me?).
I've heard the HD650 and HD600, and preferred the 650, so the HD600 is out, I think. Then again, it's been a couple years, so who knows. Anything else I should have on here?
