I am looking for better phones. Both the 650 and the 880's are great but lack to total sound I am looking for. The Senn's have better bass but the Beyer's have better treble and are more clear.. What I am seeking is the Beyer's mids and highs with a better bass and low end.
Was going to purchased either the Senn hd800 but they really stretch my budget a lot. I am also looking at the Beyer T1 that I have found for about a grand...
Just till today I did more research and have found that the AKG K 701 may have it all and are much cheaper. Any thoughts? I am a long time Hifi guy and know it comes down to the individual as far as sound.. With that said, I am just getting into headphones.

Using a Bellari HA540 right now. My Marantz PM 8004 in my bedroom system drives both those Headphones pretty well too.
In any case I think I think my headphone is good. I just read the reviews on the AKG and they were not that good on the 50 phone test.
By the way what is the HE-500?
