Not crazy at all mate, like I said, its all subjective! Also depends on your amp and source for pairing.

The HD 800s are an awesome set of cans.

I am looking for a new pair of headphones my price limit would be 1000$

I would really like the Sennheiser HD 650 or HD 700 but i really dont know that much about headphones

My music taste is all over the map which makes it a bit hard for me to find something that is good for everything

I like power metal like Sabaton and Luca Turilli but also but also symphonic metal like Nightwish and Edenbridge

On the flip side i also like some japanese songs most are anime intros soundtracks that sort of thing

So is there something out there for 1000$ that can do all that or do i need to go higher?

I am a huge vocal fan bass not so much so but i dont want something without any bass at all

Thanks

Hey, do you have an amp/dac? The HE-500s and a decent amp/dac would probably be a better solution than trying to shoot for an o2/odac combo.

Actually I agree. Maybe I did not listen to the T1 long enough to really get a good feel for it, but to me, the best headphones for the money are the HE-500s. Unless of course you can snag the LCD2 on sale. biggrin.gif

I prefer the JH13s to everything.thumb.gif

As for the above, the T1 is something that doesn't wow at first listen but will amaze you over time with how little it does wrong.


Also.. these D7000s are weird! They're like the counterpart of the W3000ANV.

If these are equivalent (not sure if the Beatport edition adds anything special besides looks), then I say stay away from the TMA-1's. They had those in my local Best Buy and just sounded God-awful to me. Muddy, no control over bass, recessed mids and even more recessed highs. Build quality was actually nice, and was what attracted me...but other than that...bleh. I've listened to $40 headphones that sounded better. Somewhat of a rant, but I highly advise against them. Obviously, if you have a Best Buy nearby, they probably have them on display to demo...if not ask someone to demo them smile.gif.

Side note: The Asgard 2 has really made me unappreciative of quite a bit of my music. Really makes poorly produced music with no soundstage or instrument separation stand out...ugh.

EDIT: And having said that, positioning the Grado's correctly on your head can greatly alter the sound. I would like to recant my prior statement...

I know that feeling perfectly. When I first got the K701, I literally deleted 1/3 of my music library. I have been buying HD music since then. biggrin.gif

Sadly, it's not that at all frown.gif. I have quite a bit of CDs and a lot of the ones I am listening to are in ALAC. The caveat is that I listen to a lot of hardcore, metal, etc that aren't bands that get good production studios like say Metallica or the like (this could be a terrible example). However, the A2 with my DT 770s on albums like the new A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Major Lazer, and Never Say Day 2 albums sound simply fantastic. It's currently very love and hate with my Grados.

I see. Well hopefully you settle on love. If not, you could always sell them and get something else!

True, I've always loved the Grado sound, and it's what I was, in a sense, raised on. I'm more accustomed to my DT 770 (32s specifically) now and even the hardcore music sounds pretty great (IMO) out of them....maybe I'll give that a listen for a while and see what happens.

EDIT: Nope...even after a couple minutes, this is not the sound. I feel very frustrated about this, now. Looks like it's time to start hunting for some headphones...maybe the DT 880s are what I'm looking for...*sigh* It must be bed time already rolleyes.gif.
