Hi! I use a lot of public transport which is noisy but is where I do a good part of my listening, so I'm looking for closed cans, or any that isolate well. I have been using the ATH-M50 for this but I would like to step up.
I listen to many different music genres, I couldn't narrow them down.
I'll briefly tell you what I think of my current hp's.
ATH-M50: I would like more liquid mids, controlled bass and airier highs. Not much eh!?
DT990: These are the ones I enjoy most, but I would like more liquid mids as well. I wan't women voices to make me melt! I also think They are a little bright every time I put them on, but after a few songs I get used to it. These have the better soundstage and imaging, which is something I love to pay attention to, so I would like more!
FA-011: I think these have too much bass, which is not bad only for a few things. I like the mids on these more than on the others.
Form2: I haven't heard them in a while, but I remember that when I started using the M50's I missed their mids, and some sense ef being involved in the music.
My main source will be the DX100, and I don't think I will upgrade any time soon. Unless a DX200 comes out!
And well, the tough part: I'd like to keep my budget for around 1000 USD. I read a lot about the Fostex TH-900 and it seems to be really interesting, but it seems they dont isolate much and I dont like the finish very much. My budget might stretch If it needs to.
I'm reading the TH-600 thread but I'm only in page 31, I still have a long way to go.
So I appreciate any comments that might help me choose!
