I know, I was just throwing in my 2 cents. Notice i didnt say that it isnt rolled off, I even stated it in my review, just that it was perfect for me, barring a headphone that brings smooth extended treble that is clean and free off harshness and fatigue and any ringing. Also I think Bob Katz did an article about the PM3 and HA2 on inner Fidelity as well and he may have popsted an eq curve there if I am not mistaken, but not 100% sure, so worth checking that out if you are...
  For me its when a particular frequency is too emphasized compared to others, that it stands out too much. This can sometimes sound exciting at first, but gets annoying after a while and in some cases can be painful, like a piecing treble, which can make my ears ring, or shouty mids that just get old after a few minutes or over emphasized bass that sounds great initially, then you get fedup of it as it might overwhelm the other frequencies... So me, i am treble sensitive....
I am probably one of the few persons who does not consider the highs of the PM3 rolled off. I like it just the way it is. I can see where people would say that they are, and I understand totally where they are coming from, probably lacking that last bit of sizzle that some people like. But to me, until I here a headphone do that cleanly and without fatigue to my ears, I like the PM3 just how they are.
I am not saying that that is how current flows, but I still think the analogy fits.... if you need a certain amount of power that your amp just cant deliver, it will reach a point of over driving and distort, in addition to sounding flat and lacking dynamics, so the small pipe is turned on full and just cant give the water that is needed. But with the more power, its not like you will see an improvement in sound quality etc, it is just that the power is there and even at...
Well my take on the headroom issue is this: I can drive my PM3 to full volume on my Ipod touch 3g and it will distort. Using the same source plugged into an E11k, I can go louder then the Ipod Touch without distortion.    with the Burson Soloist SL, It may be design, it may be circuity, but I also feel that the extra power that provides over the E11K allows it to have a tighter firmer bass and seemingly better control over the drivers, hence the music.   I could be...
OK, Let me chime in here for a little bit.   How do you equalize? The distortion might not be headphone based, it might be signal related depending on how you eq. So that is why i ask. I can easily cause my oppo PM3 or Sony 7520 to distort by boosting the bass signal on a digital eq. From my little reading, and knowledge, boosting the bass on a digital eq pushes the signal to overdrive causing this distortion, or it cuts the other frequencies by lowering their signal...
cool thats great. 
I did see that in an earlier post, just that it seemed that your impressions were more of the op amps than the soloist, so that was why i was inquiring
  Ok.... I have been reading your posts about the MKII and the V5s...... I am a bit lost..... where are the V5s installed? is it that you have the V5s installed in a different device like a DAC or are they installed in the MKII? Just clarify that for me please so I can understand whats happening? 
I wear glasses normally with the pm3 and have no issue with lack of bass. I guess it depends on the glasses?
