*sigh* you know what, A member from the W1000x thread recommend these as an upgrade to the w1000x [mine is purrin modded and L3000 padded] but honestly... reading over te breief reviews, these sound like a side grade... or rather they sound like an upgrade to the Sound Magic HP 100, which had very smooth mids nice sub bass and a recessed mid bass
Ironically I modded my HP 100 with w1000x stock pads to bring the smooth mids forward and bring back the Mid bass, my point is, seeing as these sound like an hp 100 upgrade... I wonder how well they perform again'st the modded w1000x
Any one have a freq graph? The dt 1350 as you know have a very linear bass, boosted about like what +3 or so db above 0, where as the hp 100 had a linear bass reponse closer to neutral 0
either way... I'd really love to hear these... any one own both a Purrin Modded L3000 Padded W1000x and the Kh k1000 at the same time?
Well if you want to know the about the W1000x in comparison to the KH K-1000 this guy herehttp://www.head-fi.org/u/51179/project86 is a much better source to ask then myself, he regretted getting rid of them and does phenomenal reviews.(I actually bought my first pair of W1000x's from him)
They are not my favorite pair of HPs I own, but they are very musical and balanced, they do not have the aggressive high end as the W1000x, but very good mids and lows. I use the Alpha pads on mine(they fit with some stretching) and/or J-money pads, the stock pads are decent, but do not have enough padding. I consistently reach for them over some of my other HP's. They have similar voicing to the W1000x to my ears with a better bass response and a smoother, more polite presentation.
