So I got these things in(used) and the left driver went out. I creeped up on the volume through speaker taps then next thing you know... left channel done.
I did pull away with some impressions in the very short time I got to listen
I was expecting them to be painful because even the he500 hurt a little bit for some odd reason which is not the treble like everyone says. Especially since these are "soo bright". Well this headphone has literally the least offensive, yet fullest treble I have ever heard. It also sounds the least colored IMO of the hifimans I have heard so far. Its smooth/refined sounding but I can easily hear and feel the instruments energy punch without any effort. There was something I didnt like about the sound but couldnt put my finger on it in time. I think the timbre wasnt convincing or bold enough or something I dont know. But I wish this didnt happen.
Too bad the driver went out so fast. I dont know what the freak man. Thats what I get for buying an old pair.
Also those stupid tabs on the pads suck royally, as well as how the top of the cups touch/scrape the pivot hinge. whatever though.
