Well it's got about 5 hours of burn in on it now, I figure I'll post a few notes:
I'm listening with:
Senn HD 600
Cardas aftermarket cables
First off, I wasn't really sure what to expect soundwise--Kelly's description of the sound was a tad hard for me to deciphere (musical & analytical), but I'm getting the idea now. Listening to Clapton, the insturment seperation and focus is just really awesome, the decaying of instruments sound dead on--I'm noding my head to the beautiful sounds with a big dumb smile on my face.
I don't know if I'd agree with Sean H that if feels light on the low end before break in. To my amature ears the sound is nicely balanced, I've been listening to mostly accousticy music since I recieved it, but drums seem to sound the way they should--I'll say more once I listen to something a bit heavy and more encompassing of the bottom end.
I wish I'd had a headphone amplifier with me here at school to compare this directly to, but as it is, I have been ampless for a couple of months, so my only headphone reference is my SR-60s unamped, but the sound in comparision to my MMGs and Jolida 1501RC is very very pleasing... very fast sounding, string instruments just sound magical--on a side note, I was hearing some silbance when listening with my DH Labs BL-1 ICs so I switched to outlaws, maybe that'll go away with burn in.. we'll see.
overall I think it's sounding very smooth and very detailed, with a really transparant mid range--yet it is suprisingly forgiving of what I've thrown at it. I have a 'bootlegg-ish' recording of a D.M. concert I recently attended, and it was very listenable, it isn't terrible quality, but I am suprised it's still enjoyable.
Thats all for now... sorry about the scattered nature of my impressions... I've got alot on my mind, and I suppose I'm just a mixed up individual.
