I like. But it is my first headphone. So I have nothing to compare. They do sound evolving are very light and comfortable. I will keep them. Just want to run two cans.
I am into HT big time. Always have been. So I have two massive power amps and three big subs (two SVS SB Ultra 13's) for my stereo listening. Actually have a 7.3 channel setup. So very use to heavy bass. Kinda what I want in a HP.
Something a little different. I got my Senny's working with a triple buttkicker system. That was kinda fun.

Yes. That is what I'm thinking. Maybe the PM-1 will also be too polite. Think I might have to go to a LC2. It is also in my price range. Comfort is a concern. I haven't heard of a Sig Pro. I will look into it.
I don't have any experience with the LC2, but based on comments here it seems they are very close to the same sound as the PM-1.
Some say they like the LC2 better, and some say they like the PM-1 better.
Keep in mind also, that the Oppo PM-2 will be also be released soon too, and they are almost identical to the PM-1 aside from some construction materials.
The PM-1 and PM-2 will share the same planar drivers, with the option of sound being altered through different interchangeable ear pads
So far it looks like they will have at least 3 different ear pads to choose form. Who knows how many more they may add.
It should be very interesting and exciting once they are released to market and see what owners say about how they sound with all the different ear pads.
Also, the PM-2 will be several hundred dollars cheaper than the PM-1. My prediction is the PM-2 will by far be the best selling headphone ever in the >$500 arena.
Now, having said all that, if you think the PM-1 or PM-2 may be good for you, then I would recommend them over the LC2.
If not for the sound alone, but for the customization and price over the competition. (some people also say the PM-1 is lighter and thus more comfortable than the LC2 as well)
Lastly (and maybe even more importantly), since you are looking for a very specific sound, if I were you, I would look into adding a separate EQ to your setup and experiment with that.
Just using that could give you the exact sound you want from the headphones you love the most.
Personally, I would try that before I went out and bought additional high end headphones.
That's not what everyone else does by any means, but just food for thought.
