A friend at work let me try his LCD-2's - they sounded really good compared to what I had (just some old Audio Technicas / Sony WH Mx3s and Pandas).
After that went down to Addicted to Audio and tried out some of the higher end headphones there (LCD-X, HD800, Arya and Focal Clear MGs).
Ended up walking out with the Clears because I loved them.
Bought a JDS-Labs Element 2 to pair with it.
Loving it so far.
Partner bought me a Moondrop Aria to try for the IEM world too as my bday was on the weekend
