so yah its either they just cant play loud enough or they arent rated correctly and could use a 3 watt amp or higher. I think i'll try them out of speaker jacks and see what happens
Sometimes it is the recording with all the loudness war stuff nowadays but I always double check by turning down the volume and a lot of times, it is the headphone itself. Its a common thing for both the q701 and the k240s but not on my grados and senns. Listening to classical with full on dynamics is where it gets annoying because one cant hear the big drums when they explode. The sound turns into mush
The weird thing though is that they are only rated 200mW max and the vali can give more than double at their rated impedance
I love them for all genres especially after taking out the tape behind the drivers. Only problem with them is the need for more power handling or maybe I need a bigger amp because they distort at semi loud volumes unlike my grados and senns
By the way, been listening for hours now and all I can say is LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! This mod is great. It takes away that consumer grabbing thump that AKG may have been going for to attract people that audition these cans in stores. Now its just more even. I am not even considering putting the tape back in.

Alright I did it myself with my at least 300 hour burned in Q701s and the sound after taking out the tape became less bloated in the 80 go 100hz region making the sound less punchy. It makes the overall balance more even from the lower bass up to the mids though. Overall I prefer this sound because it can be turned up more with everything being clear and the punch region is not masking some details anymore. BUT, due to this new excitement about more overall clarity with...

no bass boost, dsp effects or eq of any sort. Using Schiit Modi/Vali setup in case that matters.
