Hi guy, I'm looking for an open can, us ad900x a good choice. Tried it once and really like it but was wondering if there Andre better options or maybe more value for money cans. So far I have the m50x, and yes the earpad quality is HORRIBLE
Some say the IM03 sounds rather technical and flat. But it suits me. I'm not a bass head or treble lover, so its does well in a rather neutral sense. 3 BA drivers, one high one mid one low. Works well with my LG G3 and AK Jr, IM03 is my non-custom IEM for quite a long time, personal preference is to match an oxidised copper type cable to it.
But ultimately, the best way to confirm it is to go down and pair it with the DAP you want to get, and audit it yourself.
Got a pair of A2000x a while ago and had been using it for a few weeks. Before that I was using HD595 -> M50 -> DT880. DT880 is great but it's an open can. A lot of times while doing work I prefer a closed can to better concentrate so I got an A2000x from amazon for about 400 USD.
(Using a fiio E17, upgrading the amp/DAC soon)
It's very neutral. Nothing seems too pronounced. Bass is a bit on the light side compared to DT880.
Huge sound stage. It's a closed can but feels as open as a HD595, and have an even wider sound stage than DT880 which is a partially open can.
Very comfortable. You don't even feel you are wearing anything on your head because of the light material used and the 3D wing design.
Extremely analytical and detailed with great instrument separation. I could hear a lot of things I couldn't hear before on my other cans. In some music like aviici, I could even hear the faint disc scratching sound amidst all the loud EDM.
It's not the coolest design out there. I would have to say I really hate the "Art Monitor" words on the can. The font looks so cheap. If they had removed it and just left the Audio Technica logo and name on there it would have been so much more classy.
