    I have the same dream as you have. And two are complimentary to cover more sonic world instead of spending $3k

    Hifiman Ananda

    Here is my summer toy replacing LCDs, and again and again Ananda expresses itself in classical orchestral music in very good way.

    Hifiman Ananda

    Hifimans always reminds me of Sennheizers in tonality and good matched with classical orchestral music aka big band music. I recommend Ananda for those who considers HD800 for similar genre music. Ananda corrects for both low and highs. HD800 and HD800S might be better in retrieval of music...

    Hifiman Ananda

    I like the highs of this phone, which is one of the legacies of Hifiman. I had he-5LE, 6, 400, 500, and 560, which are always exceptional highs excluding he-400. Topping A90 is good match to this and right out of the box it shows all qualities of Hifiman's household sonic signature. It requires...

Other than that there is almost identical for layout of pcb, and...

    Audeze LCD-X

    I am in onto this thread with one of the latest LCD-Xs. This corrects the highs, which was my major concerns with LCD series phones. And also I recently purchased fazored LCD-2 which already corrected those highs. That lcd-2 pushed me to get LCD-X, which are similar quality but with closer to...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Back in with LCD-2/non-fazor and Fazor, after once owned non-fazored ones 10 year ago. It is surprising at openness of Fazor version, which has remedied in highs where non-fazor has trouble. There are details over all across spectrum, and sub-bass impact on my music. I think it is combined...

    This is one special Beethoven symphony 2 by Kertesz. You might find surprising moments in this piece through his talented conducting.

    Monolith M1070 Over Ear Open Back Planar Headphones

    To some extent, yes. But this case it can be beyond burn-in. I am in this headfi in more than 10 years, which tells that the burn-in has some effect but usually not so much scales up with time.
