I was under the impression that slipping foam under the pads increases soundstage as seen here. Were the RX700's you heard modded?
I'm a little concerned about the extreme brightness I've read that the DX1 has. Would software EQ be able to alleviate these problems? Also, is it possible to replace the stock DX1 pads with the velour pads of the DX3?
I've read that the DX3's mids have a certain "cuppiness" that is the DX1 do not. Can anyone else vouch for this statement?
Also, the cloth on the pads under the DX1's pleather are is similar to the DX3 pads.
