Been on a bit of a spending spree lately. Sales time. So got the Philips l1, ue6000 and actually thinking of the q40.
Ue6000 is nice butroblems with it. So unsure if I want to keep it.
Got Philips l1 as replacement upgrade. Heard it in store and was real happy. But home they are quite disappointing. Bass is not so good. Not sure what's wrong with it.
So I was thinking of getting the q40. People on the q40 thread loves them. And your review seems quite positive. How good are the highs? To shelved. Does it extend and sparkle enough? Are the bass really that good? How good are they compared with newer headphones. Or how does it compare with headphones that I just bought
Unfortunately I haven't heard either of your current cans. The Q40 has very deep bass - not the conventional type of mid-bass emphasis that other bass-heavy cans (e.g. Denon D1100) have. Its biggest advantage is that it has all this bass "slam" without a huge mid-bass hump to make it sound bloated. The treble was okay from what I remember - it wasn't super sparkly or resolving but I wasn't disappointed by it.
