In the beginning of the song, with the particularly heavy drum and cymbals.. I felt like his voice was being over-powered by the cymbals.. as they sounded front-and-center of the presentation.
When plugged into amp, the his voice seemed more on equal footing with the cymbals..
I'm not intimately familiar with that song.. and my ears are still learning.. (or rather I'm still learning to interpret what I hear.).. but it sounded more balanced when plugged into an amp... if that makes sense.
I listened in FLAC using the Vox application with no EQ applied, fyi..
