3) Fidelio X1

*Previous Headphones*

XB1000- Prefer Ultrasones for EDM.

D2000 - Great all rounder, and very comfortable.

D5000- Awesome, but I felt my D2000 was good enough to justify not keeping them both.

TH-900 - Great, but I prefer Denon sound.

Ultrasone Sig DJ - Nice portable unit. Good sound but I prefer comfort and sound of PRO 900 and PRO 2500. Didn't feel it was worth the expense. PRO 900 is my favorite Ultrasone basshead can.

Grado 325i- Didn't like it comfort wise, very very bright, too much treble for me.

V Moda M-100- Weak treble. Pro 900 is well ahead of this headphone to my ears.

Sony XB-700- Bass overwhelms everything.

Beyerdynamic Pro 990 (250 Ohm)- Very detailed. Too much treble (And I like Treble!). Scooped out midrange really badly. It sounded like something was missing. Disappointed with it, but super comfortable.

Grado 60i W/ Senn Pads- Comfortable, but really ugly looking. Feel super cheap. For someone that only has only 70 bucks, it would be hard to top the sound quality. I feel like these are a great introduction to quality sound.

HiFiMan 400- Nice sound, but electronic music sounds way better on my Ultrasones. I listen mainly to electronic, so I didn't find much use for these. Ortho drivers just do not do bass impact like dynamic drivers.

Ultrasone 780- Nice sound, but the Pro Line is much better. The Pro 900 kills it. If I couldn't afford it, this would be a nice alternative. The pleather pads heated up quickly, which was also annoying. The velour pads on the pros stay cool.

Ultrasone Pro 750 - I prefer the 900.

*Previous In-Ears*

Ortofon e-Q5 - Not enough bass.

JVC FXZ-200 - Bass too boomy and poor resolution.

Altec Lansing Backbeat Pro (Comply Tips) - Comply tips save this. Not bad overall, more mid centric sound than I typically prefer.

TF10- Huge buds, bad seal, Awkward cable, good sound but not designed well. Over-rated.

Monster Turbines- I actually quite liked them, but both times the cable broke leading to sound from only one side. Disappointing.

Sennheiser IE8- Really disappointing, just didn't sound good, and were ugly to boot.

T-PEOS H-100 - Kind of weird sounding. Tin-can type sound. Treble was harsh. Left side stopped working, but I didn't like them much anyways.
