Relaxed sounding headphones.

I recently ordered the Sony xb90, huge bass and soundstage, very loud and intense, what could be the yang to this yin?

What would be the total opposite, something to sit at home and just relax and drift away, no thumping bass, just cool calm and relaxed.

Sennheiser HD558 ($90-$123).

Tried those wasnt too impressed, perhaps I will give them another go, I didnt burn them in and only used them for a small amount of time before returning them.

TDK BA200 for sure. Amazing combination of smooth, relaxed sound yet still highly revealing of details. May be tough to find at this point since they are discontinued but they seem to be out there for about $150 right now.

Yeah HD558 or 598, maybe the Denon D600's? or V-moda M80/XS? Sorta smother. I tend to like faster more dynamic headphones.
