Right now, i only notice a little grain in recordings produced by a potato. In a good recording i don't hear any.
For example, a song that sounds very grainy in my experience with the HD-598's:
The treble in this song just sucks, because of the guy who produced it. And the song itself sounds not-so-good in my HD-598's.
In the other way, there are recordings who sound with absolutely no-grain, very detailed and lively on my HD-598's, like these:
Those are what i consider, at least, ''good recording'', and, in my experience, sounded full-bodied on my 598's, without any flaws.
Obviously, you need to assure that you are listening to good quality formats, at least 320 Kbps, MP3 or AAC.
A question: what is your source?
I'm confused, opeth damnation is one of the best sounding albums on my 598s...Steven Wilson is an amazing producer as well
