Best sounding headphones you have owned?


At one time I had gone through Shure, early Stax, Audio Technica electret condenser....and more.

What have you owned in both expensive and inexpensive headphones that gave you pleasurable listening?

Let me first say I am not a huge fan of headphones because I dislike the in your head soundstage. However, I love the RAAL SR1a because it does not sound like headphones. The only traditional headphone that I liked was the RAAL CA-1a.

it is the precise reason why the RAAL is the only headphone i am interested to ... I will compare it to my K340 optimized...

Out of the head impression is mandatory for me if i want to appreciate headphone...

It is the reason why i am also interested by the BACCH filters ...

I must add that my K340 produce deep bass listening organ for example that i felt with my body and are speaker like or at least completely different from headphone bass inside the head only...

Focal Utopia 2018/2019.  That's easy.  Sound great, very comfortable and great soundstage and range.  The best I have ever had, by far.

What headphone own natural timbre and own a deep bass clean and with no leak in the mids and more importantly an "out of the head" speaker like impression with great hall recordings or church one for example ?

I enjoy that only with my Akg K340 , none of the others headphones i had listend too ...

I dislike almost all headphones...

I apologize to repeat myself  wanting to be clear...

If someone know which headphone did the same please give me his name ...
