Was looking for an open back with an emphasis on the high end, but with good bass extension and smooth mids. The HE1000 V2 is exactly what I was looking for. There is plenty of bass extension, the mids are not shouty, honky or harsh (could be a little more forward for those that are looking for that), and the high end is very airy, open and detailed. There are however some tracks that have sibilance with hi-hats, cymbals and "S" sounds in vocals. There is rarely even a little sibilance with snare hits. I gave it 4/5 stars because for the price, the build quality could be a little more solid and I was quite disappointed with the stock cables.
Other than the cans, Bloom Audio is as good as it gets in terms of customer service. You won't regret buying from them!
