Howdy all - like I said in the title, I need to chat with people as opposed to just reading threads.... I have a decent flac collection, foobar, etc. I use a Gilmore lite + psu and an emotiva xda1. My current phones are AKG k601, AT ESW9, JVC HA s500, and a pair of px100s. (I also have the hd238 and the px200ii, but they both have minor problems so I don't use them much). I have pretty eclectic taste so I need an all-rounder of a headphone. I listen to a bit of Fatboy Slim and Underworld, classic rock, 90's rock, Jazz and blues. Sometimes some classical/classically scored soundtracks. I really like the huge sound stage of the AKG and I really like the warmth of the px100. The ESW9 delivers some nice bass. The JVC HA s500 were more for fun and while I really like them in my portable rig (rockbox 5th gen ipod with corda 3move and an ALO au/ag cable) I don't use them much in my desktop rig. I want to step up, but not past the ability of my gilmore lite. A new amp/dac combo is a possibility down the road, but it wouldn't be happening now. I'm looking at the Senn HD700, fostex TH600, AKG 65th Aniversary or the k712, and Ultrasone Pro 2900. I'm relatively indifferent to open vs. closed although I'm more used to an open headphone in my desktop setup. I'm going to be buying used for sure in order to get any of these for what I can afford to spend. Please share thoughts and ask me questions - like I said, I need a disscussion to help me figure out which direction to go in. TY!
