Indeed, I had to mod a lot of the icky excessive body and decay out of my w1000x. I do love it... immensely! Sadly though the Akg K550 is better with male vocals... and ONLY male vocals [which who cares because I only have 3 songs with singing men lol] that being said the w1000x get the most head time for me hands down

I know right,
But guys I have some SAD news. I got a pair of ReCabled Balanced Beyer Dt 880 600 ohms :O
It was the desire for a Beyer like sound sig that got me to the W1000x in the first place! That top spot might have some compeition :D
But honestly though, the stock w1000x is not that forward. there are PLENTY of cheap headphones that have FAR more forward mids. The w1000x just has some of the BEST forward mids around <3
As every one says. you have to mod it! Makes it even better!
oooooh wow, listening to some Grungey Heavy Metal ish Post Rock atm, and I do say that distorted guitar sounds so HEAVY on my w1000x. It's a good sound, it's got some POWER and meat on it's bones... I might give metallica's Black Album another listen tonight!
