Wow. They sound great.
There are a few things that immediately impress me. First, the dynamic approach is amazing. The bass is abundant, but its clear, tight and detailed. The bass is very lively, though in a very smooth way. This is exactly what was I wanted my Baby Orpheus to have.
The HE60's bass was just as detailed, even faster, and very clear. But it was lacking, and apparent on many songs. This headphone has could have the best bass I have heard to date. It is very reminiscent of the HP3000's(from headphile) bass.
The midrange is also lovely. It is very smooth. That is just the best word for it. However, this is where I do find a fault for my preferences. The vocals are slightly laid back slightly too much. I prefer more upfront vocals, such as the HE60, W5000, AKG K501 etc, almost to a fault. Sometimes, I like for vocals to stand out more than the rest of the spectrum of music. This could be a fault for someone, but for me it is preferred.
The highs are nearly perfect. Smooth and detailed. Nowhere near harsh, and to my ears no where near rolled off. I need more time here, to assess the highs, as imo it is the hardest part of the spectrum to truly nail down.
So as of now, my only complaint is that the vocals seem a tad laid back. I think this eliminates the Woo Audio 2 as an option, as this is exactly how Jack described it to me! lol (he said that it was more laid back and smooth than the Woo 6. Don't think I'd pair a smooth/laid back amp with a smooth/laid back headphone.)
I will also note that there was not a first five minute "wow factor"(outside of the bass being amazing). With the K1000 and HE60, I immediately said wow. With these, after about 3 or 4 completely different songs, I started to say wow, I see what is special about these and it's not just the bass.
I will take pictures this weekend. No time right now.
