So I got my stuff today. I love un-boxing photos for some reason, in case anybody else does, they are below.
Initial impressions after a mere 20 minutes of listening. Sound great, excellent detail. The first song I listened to was Discipline (24/96) by NIN. Sounded so good. Now I am listening to Stadium Arcadium (Hoffman vinyl master), Chili Peppers music is the crucial test for me since they are my favorite. I hope with some burn in the bass will increase, it is a little weak compared to what I am used to. Although I know the UE-11's were always known for emphasized bass. It seems like I have to turn the HDP knob up pretty high to get adequate volume, has to be at 2 o'clock. That's normal, right? I just got glasses today for the first time so I am trying to get used to wearing headphones with glasses. Anyways, will post more thoughts as everything burns in.
Also, which is better; USB or optical from my MacBook? I'm guessing they are the same.
