anyone? pretty sure this isn't normal, or it may just be because it was strained over my freakishly gigantic head.
guess i'll just have to eat the price of damaging it and live with it as-is....
No noticeable indent on either side of mine, but that may be thanks to my freakishly small head, as have the arms almost all the way in. Might be worth giving a V-Moda a shout, given the pride they take in build quality.
cymbals certainly do not sound as loud and sparkly as my Westone 3.
cool another thing i learned is the headband discolors really effing easily. there was a dark stain on it (don't know HOW it got there) and first i used some warm water to try to clean it and it seemed to discolor the headband a little but i thought it was just the stain being spread over the fabric. so i use some mild detergent at home to try to clean it and it made it even worse. yay 150 down the drain. i really have a penchant for destroying expensive toys.
Yeah, I think its a really bad material to be used on headphones. Don't worry at least you can still wear them. I bought a $250 phone second hand. A month later it was banned because the lady decided to scam me and not pay her bills.
Recently coupled these phones with the HM-601 (using its headphone out) and I must say they pair beautifully. I prefer these to the DT1350s which 'unsealed,' could sound thin and congested.
The lack of treble, detail and sparkle is my biggest issue with these. Burn in doesn't help
These headphones are not for detail freaks, but lacking treble and sparkle? So I must have had a "golden sample" with copious treble and sparkle? Or robm321 and dissembled are quite unlucky.
I tried them out today, I felt the same way. They could do a little bit more sparkle and also a little bit more dept in sound stage, but I was surprise by how well their low performance is for such a small little thing.
The lack of a compact folding design is exactly why I haven't purchased the M-80. For portable phones, a smaller travel size is always preferred. Maybe the M-80 Mark II (or whatever) will be that way.
Has anyone attempted mods to the M-80 to compensate for the treble roll off? Maybe something along the lines of the Markl mods for Denon's phones, or some other tweaks to the guts of the cans.
It seems odd to me that most of the popular on-ear phones have noticeable treble roll off. You'd think that treble would be easy to get right with relatively small drivers.
