Just wanted to say... this is an AWESOME track!
Enjoyed it a LOT!
Nah, W1000X actually is pretty balanced. If you want mid-focused, try W3000ANV...
Even my ES10 has more midrange emphasis than W1000X.
W1000X has a weird lower midrange and lower treble dip... but an upper midrange peak to my ears. Bass is pretty linear from 80Hz and up, though.
But if you want to make W1000X play even nicer with faster paced music, you can "overdo" Purrin's mod. That's what I did to make mine sound so good. And as far as I know, someone has compared that modded W1000X with HE-6, and it comes out 50/50.
So that says something.
Meh I'd care not to over do it. I could also drill some holes at the bottom of the cups and add even more dynamat and then I'd lost the entire sound of the can. The bass... might be linear but it still has the closed sound, the resonnace. And yes it has a touch of a lower treble dip, that's very evident. I suppose it has a lower midrange dip as well, but it follows after a Mid upper bass hump... which leads it to sound really nice actually.
So I COULD over do it, but as far as closed cans go. If the w3000anv has MORE mid... than my w1000x is my end game closed... until the Auzede closed can's go public. I might shoot for one of those, it's a great can I like the color and the little flaws it has. I'm not too keen on going in and modding it... AGAIN personally, although I might who knows :\
But the lower treble dip is a bit of an issue, in Reggae which features some nice smooth lower treble guitar riffs [Metal features a lot of that and lower Mid riffs] they aren't so great
I think it's because of that dip, and the extra decay on the bass
So all in all I don't need or want it to work better with faster music, it keeps up very well, and if I want lighting fast quickness I switch into the Dt 880, if I want the more intimate yet still balanced, punchy, airy and lush sound I switch into the w10000x they just work together so well, no need to make one better than the other. Or I lose the joy of owing them both!
Still glad you liked it :D [it's a really nice track on the Dt 880 or your... PurrinOverMod w1000x
Also what pads do you have on yours?
