2) Fidelio X1

3) Yamaha EPH-100

*Previous Headphones*

Denon D5k/D7k

Ultrasone 2900- Another one of Ultrasone's winners. I prefer the more bassy closed back Pro 900, so I decided to sell the 2900.

HiFIMan 500- Great sounding headphone. Very impressive. But still, comfort is an issue for me with these headphones.

Grado PS-500 - Incredibly clear sounding. Just not enough low end, and comfort with the foam pads was an issue.

Sony XB1000- Prefer Ultrasones for EDM.

D2000 - Great all rounder, and very comfortable. Found highs to be a bit sharp at times, leading me more towards the D5000/D7000.

TH-900 - Great, but I prefer Denon's warmer 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 headphone.

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) for EDM. Pretty mediocre overall.

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. Feels 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. Lack some bass.

HiFiMan HE-400- Nice sound, but electronic music sounds better on my Pro 900. Ortho drivers just do not do bass impact like dynamic drivers.

Ultrasone Hfi 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*

Yamaha EPH-100 - My favorite IEM. Will have to purchase again when I have the chance!

ASG 2.5 IEM - Excellent sounding IEM, just couldn't get them to fit as comfortably as I'd liked.

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.
