    Denon AH-D5200 (little brother of the AH-D7200)

    I haven't, but I've been told that the treble can be bothersome for anyone who might be treble sensitive.

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    The increases you made in the lower treble surprises me a bit. I think that might make my ears bleed a bit - assuming you're using the stock pads and no mods.

    Denon AH-D5200 (little brother of the AH-D7200)

    Yeah, comfort wasn't great. I haven't found a closed back upgrade with a similar dynamic, energetic, somewhat neutral tuning - yet. Everything I've tried has mountains and valleys somewhere in the frequency response.

    I'm assuming the people who have provided recommendations didn't see your budget of 500 dollars. Check out the E-mu Teak 👍

    Shanling M6 Ultra - 4x AKM AK4493S DAC, Snapdragon 665, Android 10 DAP

    Likely just the standard 10 band like it's predecessor. MSEB or something similar I have not seen on Shanling daps. Hopefully Shanling made some adjustments to the EQ - My M6 Pro will only store one manual setting, so I run the Hiby music app on it. Now I can utilize MSEB, but I don't tinker...

    Denon AH-D5200 (little brother of the AH-D7200)

    I preferred the tuning of the 5200 over the 7200 as well, but the 5200 doesn't have the same resolving capabilities. With some tracks, the 5200 could sound a little harsh, and a little boring. It's a good option for a daily driver, but nothing to get overly excited about imo. It is however mod...

    Shanling M6 Ultra - 4x AKM AK4493S DAC, Snapdragon 665, Android 10 DAP

    Well done. For those who prrf the brighter sound, the M6 Pro 2nd generation could be a good fit, but this tuning with the AKM chips is more my cup of tea. Sounds similar to the original M6 Pro. On the bottom of your pictured dap, showing Dyer Maker, what is X Ray?

    Perhaps it's more of a preference thing? Present, forward, and sparkly upper mids and treble?

    Closed-back audiophile headphones with bass SLAM?

    You can have the openness and the bass slam with the Apos Audio Caspian.

    Headphones for metal music - ultimate solution

    Yes, you should consider the Meze 99 Classics. Other good options that fit your criteria could be the Denon ah-d5200, E-mu Teak, and Kennerton Magni - though these may need a pad swap to avoid a little brightness. You could also consider the Beyerdynamic T5 3rd generation.

    This ain't Beyerdynamic lol

    Beyerdynamic T1 3rd Gen out now

    So the T1 is warmer, meaning more lower mid energy and forwardness? And then the upper mids on the T5 are greater than that of the T1, correct? I'm sorry, just a little confused, as you then stated that the T5 has less extended treble. Which comes across as the brighter headphone? I'm planning...

    Ibasso SR2...... 🍀 🇺🇸...here 😳

    For being a dynamic, the SR2 is pretty clean and clear sounding. Yet it doesn't have the somewhat sterile approach that many planars often have. The upper mids through the upper treble aren't going to be as bright and bouncy as Hifiman, and that's a good thing imo. The overall presentation in...

    Beyerdynamic T1 3rd Gen out now

    Treble is more extended on the T1? I was under the impression that it was darker in nature than the T5. How does the mid bass and upper mids compare/contrast between the two?

    Best DAP purely for playing stored files

    Good to know. I'm looking at the soon to be released Shanling M6 Ultra. It has 4 of the same dac chips as the 6000. Obviously not an option in this scenario though.

    Best DAP purely for playing stored files

    Maybe take a look at the upcoming Hiby RS series R2R dap.

    Ibasso SR2...... 🍀 🇺🇸...here 😳

    For real. These are the only headphones I appreciate using a pure silver cable with. For all others I own, I use pure copper.

    Shanling M6 Ultra - 4x AKM AK4493S DAC, Snapdragon 665, Android 10 DAP

    I like the extra power. Sonically, I cert hope it's an improvement over the AKM M6 Pro, as it costs roughly 300 dollars more.

    Focal For Bentley Radiance Headphones

    I was using the Meze 99 Classics 4.4mm balanced upgrade cable with my Clear MG. No microphonics in this cable at all. They are also releasing a full copper and full silver version.

    Ibasso SR2...... 🍀 🇺🇸...here 😳

    I find the resolution to be about perfect. I can definitely hear everything the song has to offer, without getting detail annoying or distraction if you know what I mean. They also seem to scale well with higher quality gear. I also find the imaging very nice.
