Out the box this is a much more refined device whereas the jvc need extensive burn in and pad modding to achieve their sonic maximum potential.
The mids on this m80 is superior in involvement to the sony 1r wich is no slouch.
The problem with this unit is it is already at its maximum potential from such a remarkably small housing.
I prefer these m80 easily over the Amperiors and the dt1350.
Much more musical and inviting.
It is hard to beat the m80 mids.
The bass is also very good.
The treble is relaxed and smooth to me.
That is more important than flashy trebles(jvc & Senn) that will cause you ear fatigue.
Some may prefer the dt1350 clean flat sterile cute sound but the m80 is just more musical.
So hats off to Val on this masterpiece.Edited by Maxx134 - 4/22/13 at 2:33pm
