Urban myths are hard to kill.....

I heard a veil. I might have mentioned it in the review, maybe I didn't. Still, I don't feel it detracts from its romantic sound.

I thought the romantic sound was the veil...

+1

never heard of veil but if anything the more subdued sound should enhance the tone of the music. Exactly why i use my HD650 for trumpet Jazz

I think at this point the veil is whatever one wants it to be, but for me, yeah, I think it is...

I think people overuse this 'veil' word.
I would call it lush though.
Veil sounds like a broken headphone.

Try Norah Jones on this baby and you will smile with happyness.

Interesting.

Note - I don't find them veiled unless seriously under driven, like from an iPod. I can sure see how someone who likes a brighter, more forward signature might find them so. They are a great fit for me.

i tried it, aint good to my ears....lost the itimacy. 

 

maybe with the introduction of higher resolution music, music softwares like audivana/media center...the veil got lifted...?

i definitely was bothered by the "veil" long time ago..zzz

I don't know about you guys. I just in no way can justify going in and doing extensive mods on a $500 headphone. Some of that stuff is real hard to undo once you have done it, not to mention what it is going to do to the resale value if you ever decide to sell them.
