Pros: Portable, Warm, Smooth, Sweet, Detailed, Powerful
Cons: A little large, expensive, no gain switch
- First, it appears really detailed - I am hearing everything, and it is really clear.
- I'm also finding that instruments are well separated - I am able to listen to everything, and that's what makes it so engaging I think.
- Mid-range (especially vocals and acoustic instruments) are really smooth and an absolute pleasure to listen to.
- Bass has a nice kick and is quite punchy. No sign of boominess or hollowness.
- Highs are not overly prominent - maybe rolled off a little, but this still has sparkle for me - so it's a really nice overall tone.
- Staging is intimate (close) rather than expansive
- If I had to sum up in a few words I'd say smooth, warm, rich but sweet - definitely not dark.
