Nah, I do want to try a 4070 one of these days but I think Jade comes first
Anyway, I think its hard to recommend a balanced sounding headphone (or any type for that matter) since everyone's hearing is different. What might be bright to someone might be balanced to another. Best if you get the chance to go to a meet or somewhere to audition different headphones. I tried some suggestions from people in the past and didn't find them to my liking. Now I just buy blindly (or more O2s)

Yes, the HD 600 was what i was thinking of too. Anything higher, then you're going into Stax territory.
