What do they sound like from the super mini Rob?
I like the sound with the Supermini aside from having to use the attenuator.
However, overall the treble is severaly lacking for my taste. The bass and mids are wonderful, but without the treble, it sounds dark. Not a fault of the amp but of the E500s. I have read a lot about the Tomahawk and Shures, so I would look in that direction if you have the funds.
I don't use graphs to decide what headphones sound like, but the severe roll of in the highs in the graph match what I hear.
Therefore, I'd look for an amp that will bring the highs out.
