I'm sorry that you didn't like them, but any review based on initial impressions is only just that - impressions. 80% (maybe 90%) of burn-in is simply adjusting to the different sound- which is why the K701 is especially notorious- not because the sound physically changes all that much, but because it generally takes a longer time to get used to it. Just my two cents. YMMV
That is definitely true; I'm not going to taint anyone's opinion of them if they find it pleasurable. Just really disappointed that they didn't sound any better than most of my other cans.
