Hi all. Forgive me for not reading 147 pages of posts, but I am considering buying the NFB-12. My only concern is I listen primarily to rock, metal, folk/rock (SRV) and like my music musical and dark. Will be listening through HE-400 as these are my only phones presently. May upgrade to LCD2.
In your opinion, would I be happy with the NFB-12? If not, would there be any Audio-gd products I'd be happy with or are they more neutral for the most part.
*I use the term neutral to describe sound as recorded on medium without any coloration. I happen to like coloration. Thanks.
I think the NFB-12 is on the warm/darker side of neutral, so I think you'd be fine with them. When I used my DT880/600's with them, I liked the coloration it gave. I thought it tamed the highs just a bit, added some bass weight, and overall added some flesh to everything.
