After owning a Grado SR60i a while ago I lately acquired the 325i and they sound fantastic but...I`m in dire need of a closed back design. Fully open SR325i simply doesn`t cut it in some situations and let`s be honest they`re suited rather for relaxation.
I`m looking for a full size closed, well isolating pair of cans with linear signature. I also owned AKG550, they`re great, but the higher end of the spectrum seems odd. I love the punchy well controled bass on them though, seems like it could cut Your ears in half with it`s precision.
I need that kind of dynamic - in terms of speed not technology, fast, accurate headphones with best soundstage and most importantly the ability to pinppoint different sound sources, analytical headphones with wide soundstage, something similar to the k550 just better all along the lows, mids and highs, more accurate. Good stereofnics and the ability to build a clear 3d soundsage is very important.
Are there any worthy competitors? I heard that Focals Pro are good, but with small soundstage, any guess on Yamaha HPH220, would it be any upgrade? Any others?
Best regards, Greg.
