Default Recommend closed back cans for travel (updated 1st impressions DT770pro)

Well yeah, I sneaked back in for a while, looks like my membership is still valied.


Closed back
Soundstage and separation number 1 priority
Lotsa air number 2
No sibilance number 3

Good bass but neutral, not dark or muffled

Today I had a listen to the following

Senn Px360
Bose AE2
Bose Triport aka AE1

Thoughts, bose more sibilant but good staging, senn are the least dark I have ever heard a senn, better isolation than either Bose design and the widest soundstage heard on a closed back senn

Bose fantastic stage, air, bass, but sibilant

Senn, just less stage, less air, better treble, better isolation

Bose Triport, a muddy mess

Anyone hear the Denon 1100 or its clone the Creative Zen Aurvana Live?

All ideas welcome...oh and, yep, deaf, yep big...huge ears...ect etc

Oh and at the moment mostly using 1st gen Hippo VB with phat bass port and medium comply tips out of my trusty Zen Vision M but starting to use my new (pre loved) HTC Wildfire

Goodness, where did 5 years go??
