One other problem with the mod is that it puts all your music under a microscope like the DT-880 did. The variations between track quality is now even greater.
I have this AWFUL Jpop song and it's now nearly unlistenable on the Q701. U2's "Original of the Species" sounds like unlistenable crap too. So many stupid annoying peaks in the recording as well.
As if the bloated bass wasn't bad enough.
Live material now sounds more spaced out which isn't for everyone.
It is amusing hearing tracks where the male and female vocals sound shoved in your face and then the next is very distant. All due to recording of course.
Maybe AKG was trying to make their headphone more listenable with poor quality tracks Not that it's very forgiving to begin with.
I'm going to give it a week but i'm 98% sure the mod is staying.
