They have attributes I like in a headphone.
The 48a just makes me one with the music. And that makes my music enjoyable.
What I'm really interested in the most , are the DT48A highs.. ,
The frequency graph shows it is flat like the dt48e until 3khz , then has a slow -15db drop
from 3khz - 8khz , it peaks at 10khz and then rapidly drops off before even hitting 15khz ... where as the DT48e is flat all the way through. So the DT48e must sound a lot brighter than the DT48a because of the huge drop off in the highs ??Does your assessment of what you hear correlate with the response graph that came with the DT48A ??
or is there something weird going on ?
