my audio nirvana has been realized. my school has wicked sound cards in the computers so i tried my shure srh840 with them on those computers and all the harshness disappeared. also i could tell the difference between youtube and 320kbps better as youtube no matter what song sounded dull in comparison. seriously these cans are freaking amazing when given a proper source. the difference was night and day between my ipod classic/laptop and the school computers. if the fiio e7 gives me this same sensation i am sold and may not need new headphones for a long time. i now realize why these are considered top of the line for the price. if i ever say anything bad about these it is because i am stuck with my laptop and ipod's sound quality for a while more. i can't wait to get a fiio e7.
I agree whole heartedly. It sounds absolutely fantastic out of my E9. So much so that I feel like I found my go to closed headphone of choice.
