As sacd mentioned, I'm talking about added sibilance, that isn't a part of the recording, yet every person with k1000 seems to either:
a) swear the sibilance a part of the recording (since when does "higher resolution" = sibilance?)
b) get past the honeymoon stage and sell them for cans that don't suffer from this problem
Oh I've had this same argument with a number of head-fiers who own the k1000,.
Yes some recordings sound terrible, but no recording should ever be unlistenable... I am happy to say that my rig don't favour good recordings over bad recordings in the listenability department. That is afterall one of the goals I strived for in putting together my system.
Some low resolution cans hide sibilance, but there are other low resolution cans that increase it. Sibilance is related to the headphones you are using, how clean the power in your rig is, and how smooth your cd player, interconnects and amp are. Its a step my step path to iradicate it from your rig, but once you do, you can stop listening to audiophile crap and go back to all the crapp recordings you missed. ^^

Its you who is confused to what is on the recording not me. Listening to omega 2's or my modded ps-1's, each more resolute then the 701's, yet I don't hear this added sibilance on the stax or the grados.
