are you that sensitive to brightness?
I noticed that too but it's just too little difference brightness between um3x and w4.. I noticed this on Taylor Swift's Sparks fly.. @ chorus on the w4, it sounds a bit brighter but no sign of causing fatigue whereas on the um3x there's no hint of any brightness.. i don't know if that much forward mids of the um3x caused this..
on the other hand, it still sounds natural and full and more musical and still intimate on the w4..
Not terribly sensitive I don't think. It was just an interesting comment I wasn't expecting so I thought I'd check. My CKM50's are pretty bright to me so that's the only thing I can compare to (for now).
*Edit: I tried the UE600 for 2 weeks and there were a few times I put them in and liked them but for the most part, they sounded veiled. It sounded like the singer was up front and the band was behind a curtain. I do think this had a lot to do with the fit but I hate comply foams.
