Hi, i would like to buy a new pair of headphones, i already have a pair of westone um3x and sennheiser hd25 for portable, and a pair of hd598 for home, now i want a closed headphone to use at home, i need something to feel an upgrade from hd598, i usually listen to electonic music, but 80% of that is vocal trance music, so vocals shouldnt be reccesed, or not so much, i want something with more bass quantity than hd598.
i have read a lot of things, and i have found some headphones which should be good like ultrasone pro900 and denon d2000, but i have read that both have recessed mids, so i dont know.
I dont have a good amp, i only have a soundmagic a10, which i think is not going to pair with that headphones and my source is a cowon s9 and a sony a828
please help me choosing a headphones under 400$! The only important thing for me is sound quality, isolation and all other things are not important for me.
thanks and regards

Pro2900 would be an excellent choice for your taste, but they are open and maybe not in your budget.
 
Pro900 and D2000 have effectively recessed mids but vocals are still very good.

Thanks for your advice, something that im considering is to buy a nice headphone amp, which should improve my hd598, but i dont understand what amp should i buy, i see some ibasso but i dont know if they are worth it.
So do you think that d2000 and pro900 vocals are still good for vocal trance?
For example i have a pair of shure srh750dj too, and for me they have recessed mids, are the mids of d2000 and pro900 more recessed?
thanks a lot

Sennheiser HD-598 (50-Ohm) usually sound decent without a headphone amplifier and do not improve greatly with headphone amplifiers,
but a headphone amplifier would bring out their best.
Around $100 would be as much as you would want to spend on a headphone amplifier for the HD-598.

Very good in quality, but recessed.

I find the pro900 mids more recessed than 750DJ, but better in quality. D2000 if i remember correctly are between both in terms of presence.

Senn 650. 
 
Best in this price point, regardless of preferred style. But you will need that amp.
