For those of you Berliners who tried the newly released HD598, how did they compare to the HD650? Very curious on those gorgeous looking phones.
But perhaps there is something I am more interested in than those HD598s: Which amps did the W1000x's sound good with? I found myself unable to hold back once I saw a great deal on the forums for a MINT condition pair and now am the proud new owner of these beautiful cans. Admittedly, I haven't logged nearly enough hours to warrant a firm grasp on the sound signature, but from what I've heard so far these headphones are a bit on the bright side and indeed dark. Fortunately, both are not an issue on classical pieces and the soundstage, detail, and decay are so incredible that I find myself emotionally moved often. On more modern pop songs with a hotter treble and synthesized instruments, the sibilance and "off" sounding highs do make these phones fatiguing.
I'm currently searching for an amp that will slightly roll off the top end of the treble and make the mids warmer without taking away any detail; do any of the amps there have such synergy with the W1000x?
