Completely hypothetical: So let's say you're in charge of creating a headphone exhibit that must include 3 distinctive, respectable and interesting examples of high end headphone audio, each of them under $1000, or maybe you are just getting them for yourself to become part of your own well-rounded collection. What would you go for, why? I'm not sure what I would choose, because my "hi-fi" headphone experience caps out with my Denon AH-D5000. Based on conjecture and hearsay alone, though, I think I would assemble a trio including a D7000, an audio technica W1000X (so pretty) and an Audeze LCD2. I admit that this is a secretly veiled "what really unique headphones under $1000 should I check out?" thread. I hope it's more interesting than that, though!
