Got the stock cables reterminated to 4pin XLR and thought it would tighten the bass.
But I'm pleasantly surprised to report that besides the bass tightening up, I have found three additional bonus features
1. Soundstage width has increased
2. Unnecessary sibilance has vanished.
3. Treble energy has reduced slightly.
Has anyone had a similar experience.
your amplifier is SS or tubes?
i tried mine versions with two solid state amplifiers: one in balanced and se mode and my beta in balanced mode.
i never found sibilance in this headphone but the great benefit with balanced mode is the soundstage and a better balance.
the headphone is sensible but need energy
just my opinion
p.s.: i forgot one thing. the stock cable is very good but a aftermarket cable improves the detail
