Is there anything else I should check out? My previous cans I should mention are AD900X, and HE-500. I loved them both (especially the he-500) had a tad bit to much treble for my tastes, and resulted in a bit of fatigue.
( a few people suggested my issue with the he-500 may have been the treble peaks at 2khz and 6khz I believe?)
I'm currently waiting to buy LCD-2, (tried em at a store and fell in love) but I need something as a spare until then, and also to use on the go with my ipod touch.
I would be willing to spend a little extra if it had a decent return policy, on the off chance I don't enjoy them.
I'd really like something that has a really nice thump in the low end, although I'm not sure if IEM's can provide that punch? I have about zero experience with IEM's.
