post #1006 of 1008

Yeah, they are great cans but even much better when Frans mkII hardware filter is applied. Recommend to try it out if You have basic soldering skills ;)

Only thing I find those cans lacking is soundstage depth towards front. It has great wide soundstage and separation but compared to Fidelio X1 they totally lack depth towards front.

But I still have those cans for friends and other ppl to try out the first taste of good sounding cans not like beats or other crap that nowdays young pop culture mostly use.

Yeah, I actually looked in to that one time.  Anything involving an electrical schematic is not for me.  I actually tried soldering a power transistor in my car recently and failed miserably.  The treble on these really doesn't bother me.  If it ever gets to the point where it does, I'll probably just apply a little EQ to tame it down some.

HD681 has spiky treble. It annoying most people. Including me. And what comes to bass. It's a bit boomy. If you gently lower 60 Hz -3 to 5 db it makes bass snappier. My settings are +6 30Hz (optional), -3 60Hz, +2 4500 Hz, +4 9875 Hz (need to be exactly), -4 12000Hz. I have done bass and treble dampering mod. So probably you have to adjust more equalizer than me.
