Finally got this headphone, at first I was hesitant, in photos it looked uglier than sin but somehow in person it seems much nicer.
I was loving my Beyerdynamic DT990s 250ohm Pros until I accidentally ruined a driver while performing cosmetic and cable modifications.
Was looking at the Audeze LCD-2 as an upgrade (huge leap I know) but then I decided to give these a shot because I heard they had similar characteristics to the LCD-2s. It's nice to have a headphone that doesn't have ridiculous treble spikes that make loud listening unbearable. *Stares at DT770s* *glaces slightly at DT990* *And gives a quick look to the M50* but without missing a nice heavy low end *That means you HD 598*
So it was my most expensive headphone purchase. Using it with a Schiit Magni and switching between the FiiO E18 and Creative Sound Blaster Z as the DAC.
So far the only thing I don't like which isn't a real problem is it feels too much like the HD 598 but the shape is different where the grills are (the HD 598 feels more flush)
Sonically no complaints, perhaps I might have complaints later down the line, probably when I start playing FPS's with these.
