I was hoping to surf the in-house wisdom/experience on higher-end headphones and which, if any, have a consensus for being better for "classical".
My current set up is a Marantz CD6000 OSE going into a JDS labs atom amp. I then have two sets of cans: 1) Massdrop Sennheiser 58x Jubilee (open back for when alone), 2) Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohm (closed back for when the kids are around).
The Sennheisers are great, of course, and the better headphones....however I am going through a Bach phase (working my way through all of the cantatas and large choral works) and the trebble can be somewhat fatiguing after a while (30 mins plus) on the Senns.
So, I am wondering whether there are any additional open headphones that people could recommend in that price range (<$200), and of a similar audio quality that may be more forgiving for choral music in general.
AKG 702 has good reviews online vis a vis classical music, although from reviews I have seen it may be a step down from the Senns.
I do quite like the Beyer sound though so the 600 Ohm DT990 is also a possibility.
Thanks in advance!
