I sold my Hifiman HE1000V2 phones.
I really liked them, but felt the bass could be fuller, and moving to a closed phone wouldn't be a bad idea anyway as I usually bugged my wife with the noise :wink:

I'm looking for a cheaper headphone, that can be driven well with a Chord Hugo 2.
I've tried the mrspeakers (now Dan Clark Audio) Aeon, and they were close, but had comfort issues with them. Wondering how much better the Aeon 2 will be with sound and comfort?

Also briefly tried some of the Focal headphones at shows, but there was something about them, that made me take them off without too long of a listen.

Audeze sound pretty good, but are way too heavy.

Sennheiser HD 800s sounds good, but too thin in the bass.

ZMF phones sound pretty decent, but may be too expensive.

I'm really digging my Campfire Audio Andromeda IEM's at the moment if that helps place the sound I'm looking for (although a warmer cable might be welcome).
