They look pretty angled to me.
They're very comfortable actually when not listening to music, but when the music starts, the music in the left earpad starts to hurt my left ear, even when the volume is very low. Clamping pressure is absolutely not the issue. Because the left eardpad sits very different than the right earpad. And whatever I tried, I couldn't get the left earpad to sit right. I did have the exact same issue with the Philips X1, which has angled pads as well. So I guess angled pads are not...
I'm at the point were the left earcup sits so annoyingly on my ears, that they actually hurt the inside of my left ear if I'm playing music with bass on them. Who else has this problem?   I think it is because of the angled pads, because I had the same problem with the Philips X1.   If it wasn't for that annoying problem, they would be very good headphones.
I don't think they have too much bass as of right now, but I don't consider them neutral either. They have like a 4 or 5 dB boost in the bass. But the bass they have, is a bit bloated and undefined. I'm hoping this will improve with burn in. I'm also hoping that they will sound really good on all songs with burn in, not just on some songs.
So I got these in a few hours ago and I've been listening to them since then.   The left earcup fits awkwardly on my ear unfortanetly, which makes the sound on the left earcup a bit weird.   Comfort is very good.   Onto the sound: They have around 5 hours of burn in, and they sound a tiny bit better than straight out of the box.   On some songs, they actually sound as good or better than my modded JVC HA-S400 already. But on most songs, they sound decent to bad....
My onboard soundcard sounds clearly better than the Realtek one I had in my previous laptop. I have an IDT High Definition Audio CODEC soundcard, and it sounds better than my phone. But by more realistic, I mean that they sound more natural, more lifelike. For instance I found the vocals on the X1 (with my IDT HD Audio CODEC soundcard and my phone) to sound a bit unnatural, especially when I compared them to the HA-S400. But we are going offtopic here.  Anyways, the JVC...
You know, I never heard the X1 with an amp before, just from my onboard soundcard. But I thought the JVC HA-S400 sounded more realistic than them in the vocal range.
I'm not really a basshead. Don't get me wrong, I like bass that's around 5 dB emphasized, but I like the bass to be very tight as well. And I love good sounding vocals and very clear treble.  What amp do you have on your Philips X1, and how do they compare to the X1 soundwise?
The treble is one of the strongest point of this carbon nanotube technology (atleast on my JVC HA-S400). Present when it needs to be, and very soft textured, which gives them a lot of clarity.
So I did the tape mod and removed the ring on the outside of the earcups on these headphones, and man, they have some REALLY good clarity while being not sibilant at all.   Unfortanetly, sometimes the midrange sounds a bit recessed to my ears, but that's because I got the AKG K81 pads on them which makes them sound less forward, but better than the stock pads.   But on some songs it's almost mind blowing how clear they sound, while still not being sibilant at...
