Best Stax for EDM/bass performance?

High-end Audio Forum - www.head-fi.org
I have my first Stax rig (SRM-727A -> SR-Lambda Pro). I'm using an ODAC with it.

I've heard that Stax can be pretty bass-light, but the most impressive thing about my setup is the bass: it goes much lower, with much greater clarity, detail, speed, and control than any other headphone I've heard, and beats most subwoofers I've heard too. The excellent subterranean rumble and slam of the Stax bass has been a revelation.

I listen primarily to EDM, so bass is an important region for me. But I don't like the "everything forward" sound signature overall, because it's usually too fatiguing for me. EQ'ing only helps somewhat, and doesn't really solve the problem.

Is there another Stax headphone that keeps the amazing low end performance, but that's also easier to listen to overall? Am I doomed to have to save up for the SR-009 to get what I'm looking for?
