So, I'm still looking for a portable over-ear/on-ear. This was my impulse buy...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The sound from the left driver was noticeably low (when compared to the right)... and there was a bad crinkling from inside both drivers during adjustment. It really is a shame because after researching I knew these were it. I did, however, love what was coming from the working right driver... so I arranged for a replacement.
Getting on the Xbox again, this time with the 5.8 amped via FiiO E12 and my K712... Should be pretty ultimate! The noise has a pretty soft/rounded/even sound with little texture, so it's not offensive. Just reminds me of my noise-canceling headphone, but a little quieter.
Any volume setting suggestions for power-amping?
