hello everyone!
 
am looking to exapnd my headphone collection so the question is:
 
i have sennheiser hd650 and denon d2000. 
both are very differente headphones for differente purposes with their unique sound signature.
 
so am looking for a headphone thats differente from those.
something unique from the hd650 and d2000
 
the meaning is i dont want a headphone thats sounds too simillar to those, but in the same league.
 
so, any suggestions? ive thinking about beyerdynamic headphones.

Akg Q701 is very different from those two , it is neutral, very large soundstage ,analytical and very detailed treble , very little mid and upper bass.
 
Pro 900 , small 3d soundstage , strong treble and lower mids ,sounds wonderful for electric guitars ,punchy bass but not to strong 
 
both sound very different to what you own .

Are you just wanting more for the sake of novelty, or is there a particular itch that your headphones aren't scratching?
 
If it's just to try something new (nothing wrong with that), I would recommend Beyers or Ultrasone as well.  Some T50RP might also be an interesting option for you, if you want to try your hand at a bit of light modding.
