so there's nothing to "change" but rather some reorganzing to do!
I also think I under powered my w1000x with the solid state, it sounds nice an rich on FULL power with my dt 880s
, yea even with more power the w1000x still sound a little veiled maybe, the soft gentle touch of the mids is lost on the solid state,
so still, people say teh L3000 pads make vocals very intimates and let's hope that's exacty what happens. I'll find out soon enough!
so I had the gain way to high and the volume well to low, there is anice full sound with the ss on the w1000x when i keep the gain low, as the additional noise with higher gains RUINS everything, later in that day they sounded TO full, funny me and damn me being here at ;ole 2 am as everything sounds strange at that time
but i'm listening to "To Build a Home" and it's really beautiful on the w1000x! More so that it is on the dt 880, the 880 has the HEAVY piano notes too powerful or to forward that it drowns the vocals, where as the w1kx keeps everything nice and level. Again those pads are going to be nice! if they do what they are said to do, plus the additional comfort is needed. And the bass is very nice on these through the ss!
Sadly though as much as I love my indeed g3 [the hybrid tube I paired these with] the Matrix M is really doing these cans justice! I still miss the extra mid warmth of the hybrid tube, but I don't miss the distant treble and slighty smaller sound stage.
So again looking forward to the new pads!
WOW, just started playing some Chili Peppers, and MAN it sounds really good! Flea's bass KICKS, while Anthonys Vocal SLAM and ofc Frushante's guitrar riffs are really nice, very impressed!
Still though hoping those new pads bring out the mids alittle <3
Listening to hard to conentrate, and man that bass line, very intiamte with the solid state and the w1000x. Nice and tight with sufficent warmth!
