Did a listening session with some models.
Output was Tidal > DAC Chord Electronics Mojo.
ATH-A990Z: Mids and Higs were fine. The bass was higher than what I expected, but woolly, and very loose. Also bled into mids. This model is suposed to have good soundstage, but the sound was congested.
Isolating wise was ok, though worse than the Meze's.
ATH MSR7 : These headphones are sometimes described as bass light, but this is not the case. Actually, it was close to bleeding into the mids. The rest of the frequencies were fine. Sound signature was not completely neutral/boring, but a bit on the fun side. Had a certain amount of clarity.
Not very comfortable.
Meze 99 Neo: Mids were a bit recessed, but the rest of the requencies were fine. Bass was a little tighter, not sure if it was due to the amp. Ok sound overall.
Audeze Mobius: Connected via USB, not analog. Tested 3D a bit, not on multichannel music/tv, but interesting still.
Disabled 3D and EQ (I think, or on Auto). Bass light. The sound was precise, but distant. There was a coldness to the sound, and it lacked fullness.
B&O H9 (H4 were not available): Did not notice recessed mids. Bass and highs were fine.
Musical, engaging, lively, fun headphones. A refined version of the Panasonic HTF 600. The other option was the M audio Q40, but it's out of production. The B&O H6 2nd gen might also be similar, but it's also out of production.
I'm curios how this compares to the M-100 or the Fostex TH-X00.
