I have an Aquarian Hi Energy snare head right now. It sound great, with the crack I was looking for, and just the right amount of ring, with a great rimshot sound. When these heads give out, I plan on going all Evans, so as not to become a fanboy. So, what head would be similar to a Hi Energy? I was looking at a Reverse Dot, but I'm not sure if it's what I'm looking for. If it's a little less dead than the Hi Energy, but just a durable head with similar sound characteristivs is what I'm looking for.

According to the comparison chart there isn't anything else like the Hi-Energy; http://aquariandrumheads.com/drumhead_tips/default.asp

If you're looking for different sounds, by all means try new heads. If you just want to buy a different brand to be different, stick with what you like. :)
