Is it wrong that I'm completely in love with the bass boost? Yes it's boomy as hell but I've got my 1Rs for (somewhat) analytical listening so I've been thinking about keeping these stock and accepting them for the bass monsters they are.
Initial impressions -   Amazing build quality, leaps and bounds better than the MDR-1R in that aspect. Pretty weird considering that the 1Rs were more expensive when I got them. Bass is insane, I'm listening wired while charging so this is without bass boost. Honestly I can't even begin to imagine what these would sound like with bass boost on. Pretty dark, soundstage not as good MDR-1Rs. But the bass..... it's addictive.
Getting them today, I can't wait.   Also, does doing the Dynamat mod on these change anything? I did it on my MDR-1Rs last year and they sound awesome now.

Finally solved the creaking issue! As I thought it was just the hinge making noise. So I opened it up and with a toothpick applied very small amounts of vaseline to both the hinges. Put it back together and the creaking noise is gone! Also upon closer inspection those silicon rings that sony put there to reduce noise don't do anything at all.
  Momentums look like they're trying too hard, and personally I cannot stand V-Modas, sorry :p . They look way too flashy, gaudy and just overall trying even harder than the momentums. The earcup design reminds me of medieval armor, lol. The MDRs look understated and classy, I dig that. 
What on earth are you talking about?. Just because it happened to a pair of shures why the hell would it happen to these? lol   Anyway, not getting rid of these, I actually love them. Best looking headphones in the market BY FAR.   Na uh. The creak is not coming from the swivel mounts on the headband, it's coming from the hinge that attaches the earcup it self to the holder; the half circle thing to which you connect the cable. It's just a matter of plastic rubbing on...
You guys have a solution for the creaking earpads? Oil? Vase line? Lol
The only complaint I have is the creaking ear cup..its driving me mad.
Maybe the song was badly mixed? Haven't really experienced that tbh.
