T-Peos H-150 (on tour, PM if you are interested)
Former or tried:
AKG 550: poor seal, to big
MDR-Z7: Uncomfortable headband after a while. Bass bloat. Too polite, but smooth and very comfortable pads
Dunu-1000: Just liked the IE80's better
Audeze EL-8 (closed). Bad microphonics. Tin can sound.
NAD VIsio 50: Comfortable, but small earcups. Balanced. Tight bass, not heavy. Not fun. Forward mids. Thin. Probably accurate. Maybe even a litle bright.
HiFiMan HE-400: Need a good amp. Very revealing. Beautiful bass, but not as extended as the DT-770.
Audeze LCD-3 (pre-fazor): need a good amp. Very nice! detail, extended bass. Extended highs. Smooth. Bass thump, but controlled. tight mids.
