I'm worried about excess bass with the Beyers. I have Fiio E07K DAC/amp and I would be afraid that won't be enough juice to drive a 600 ohm headphone.

That's why I mentioned the 880's. I own the 990's and love them but they do have more powerful bass......the 880's are MUCH more neutral.

HM5 a cheaper option, is also v comfy. v good isolation, puts me into a zone v often.

Ah gotcha. My list is getting larger not smaller ;-)

Thanks for the suggestion. Definitely checking them out.

I can expand it. I just got the AKG K612s today. Another neutral open can. However, they like a lot of power.

Thanks very much for the suggestions but I prefer the sound of an open phone. I appreciate it though!
