I hate to be the only one posting but I thought I'd provide an update; A/B-ing against my MDT's, there is a very obvious mid-bass hump with the MDT's with apparent midrange bleed. The Atrio's on the other hands don't experience any bleed whatsoever; they're channeled more towards the sub bass, versus the mid-bass hump. While I absolutely love the punch and feel of the MDT's, in direct comparison, the Atrio's offer a much more refined listening experience to my ears, across the whole spectrum.The MDT's don't match the level of detail and clarity the Atrio's carry.
Hey I2, Thanks for the Impressions my good friend! I wanted to suggest to give the tri's some time, as I had the same problems initially, but glad you're adapting. I know the Mids are not like the Shures or your SM3's, but do you feel that the Mids are recessed at all. (Do they feel distant?) And how;s the Isolation? Do you feel that they may be better than the Sony's you had? Thanks
