I burned mine in for a couple hundred hours...and found the sound profile barely changed. They sounded awesome out of the box. They require less burn-in than any cans I've owned so far.
Totally agree. My E07K makes a huge difference in the sound.And despite hours and months of daily use, I've noticed no cracking or physical issues. I still think these are the most amazing closed cans you can buy sub-500 bucks.
I know what you mean and I've noticed it too. Doesn't bother me...even doing stuff around the house, unless I actually bump the ear cups i don't hear it. Personally I believe it's a normal function of the really strong seal they make (which to be clear is a major reason why these sound so amazing). I have noticed varying degrees of this transfer of vibrations on ALL closed cans I've used. The better the seal, the more vibration/bump noise you'll get. I think of this as an...
Well I'm pleased to report that after five days the clamipng pressure seems to have eased up a bit, just enough to move it from noticeable to not really. You can still feel a solid seal from the pressure...i suspect this almost-pressurized seal you get with these things contributes to its amazing sound. But it's not something that is cutting into my listening enjoyment. (Though my 598s feel almost comically light now!) Either that or i'm just getting used to it, but i'm...
Dude i am a huge Television fan! Seen them several times and worship Marquee Moon. (I will give it a spin, thanks for the reminder!) I listen to a lot of metal and prog (and the intersection of the two). Through the PSB's I've been spinning a variety of stuff...Opeth, Floyd, Super Furry Animals, Pallas, Pineapple Thief, Tull, Dream Theater, Kansas, Hawkwind, Nine Inch Nails, Deftones....everything sounds amazing so far. Again, the equal, or nearly, of my HD 598s, which...
Yeah i wouldn't characterize the construction as poor per se...just that they are heavy and clampy for those of us with big heads. (i haven't heard any kind of cracking in the band when i use them so i must not be stressing them as much as some folks are). I did feel like yesterday the pressure was either eased up a bit, or i'm getting used to them. Overall they feel well built to me. I had this whole conversation with my wife last night to the tune of "i cannot BELIEVE...
I will need more time with them (and time to write) in order to give a full review, but i spent a few hours with them yesterday. Holy crap. A. yes ,they sound smashing right out of the box. (so much so that i find it hard to imagine how much more they could improve from burn in.) B. wow, they sound better, far better than any closed can i've used yet. They sound almost as good as my HD 598's, and the soundstage seems almost as wide. Which is just impossible to believe. But...
Thanks guys. It's on the FedEx truck as I write! Glad to hear i can enjoy out of the box. Wasn't true of my Ultrasones for sure. I'll do at least a full week of pink noise in any event. I'll be sure to report back my thoughts once i live with them for a few days. Already have my "headphone demo" music queue all set up (nothing like the 2011 master of Floyd's The Final Cut to test soundstages!)
Took the plunge. PSB will be here tomorrow. What have folks done for burn-in time on these?
I am currently trying to deccide between these and AKG K550s. I need closed cans for use when my wife is watching tv etc. I've been using Ultrasone 680's for about a year and really like them but am looking to upgrade and get a bit more space in the signature. Heard great things about both cans, but was wondering, if picking between the two, which folks here would lean towards.
