Ok Time to take the plunge for a full set of cans. I want the closest sound to my ue-11 within a starting budget. Only open phones I have tried were the hd555 and I felt they sounded thin and at times the highs sounded shrill out of my pico. In my opinion to get decent bass I had to cover he grills to seal them off a bit. Was looking at the k701/702 and 602 and was told they would sound quite thin. I love how the akg's look but want sound as close to my customs. I want to hear great details in the highs but have a good detailed bass present. Give me your opinions on what should be bought. Listen to most types of music but country. If I decide full cans are not for me they will be sold to roommate who likes classic rock.
