    I have the sennnhieser 800S paired with the violectric 280. Amazing clarity.
    Could you give me some ideas of a headphone under $2500. That I could audition to see if I prefer the more bass less analytical sound?
    Thanks

    I think I heard focal utopia is on sale on moon audio for 2.5

    Sony MDR Z1R in addition to the above. Definitely check that Utopia out

    Audeze LCD 3/X

    Another vote for the Audeze LCD3...it retains a lot of clarity but adds more low end.

    Oppo PM-1 is an other candidate. It's a laid back headphone without any harshness. Not analytical at all. Personally I didn't like the rolled off treble, but maybe you can test it out if you like it.

    Vanilla HD 800 with a powerful amp + balanced cable and a lot of EQ power makes them slam as good as my Edition X V2, while having presenting more detailed bass.
     
    Swiftfalcon and kazsud like this.

    Less bass version? then just try the HD800.
