I'm looking for some advice on nice all-rounder phones to go with my new Cowon J3, please. My current phones are Shure SE310s. I like the detail on them, and they can sound very nice with certain EQ settings on the J3, but overall I find them a bit bright, fatiguing and lacking in bass. I like smoothness, clarity and detail and strong timbre representation with a punchy, well-defined non-boomy bass and a temperature ideally very slightly on the warm side of things but not too unnatural. I'm after something which is fun and musical but which reveals a lot of what the musicians are up to. My source files are a mixture of FLAC and 256k AACs. I listen to any genre, but blues/hard rock, prog rock, folk/accoustic, jazz and classical more than anything else. I started considering the Panasonic HJE9000s, but comments about them being like an inferior version of the Ortofon E-Q7s (as well the filters' tendency to fall off) led me to investigate that set. Said investigation suggested that the similarities are perhaps not so strong after all, with the Panasonics lacking in mid and the Ortofon arguably focusing on it. Regardless, I've liked most of what I've read about the Ortofons, especially the idea that they represent one of the best halfway houses between detail and fun out there. What's given me slight pause is talk of coarseness and one review which suggested they're not so good for classical and rock because of the laid back treble. The review made it sound as though the E-Q7s were more suited to middle-of-the-road stuff. If I listen to something sweet, I want the sound to be tender. Similarly, if I'm hearing a searing Frank Zappa or Jimmy Page guitar solo I want to feel it! As I have no experience with IEMs of this level I'm conscious of the possibility that these criticisms are relative to others in that bracket, and that to my ears they won't really be an issue. Anyone have any comments on the Ortofons, given my criteria, or perhaps suggestions of other phones to try? Was thinking about the Shure 535s as well, even though they're another 150 pounds over the Ortofons, for some reason. SM3s and FX700s look interesting too. I'm not really in a position to try a whole bunch, though, so informed advice such as is available on here would be really useful to me. Cheers.
