A Declaration... X1s are officially insane.
I have been burning my pair in pretty much on and off since I got them. Guys that own these people are gonna think I am crazy but. Burn in for these phones you guys have no idea. The bass on my pair is off the chain nice the overall sound is so dynamic. I read through Tylls review of them but on my pair even the low hitting low los are defined tight textured to crazy levels with intoxicating rumble. All my other cans are crying foul right about now..
If you guys are looking for a sound signature you can latch onto use these as a goal. One of these days. You must hear the X1 fully burned in..I am finally getting to enjoy these things and I have to say I am just completely blown away by their absolutely wonderful sound. I know it is easy and natural to get used to a phone but I never really got used to their sound because school time. I would periodically listen in on them here and there but I don't recall these cans sounds this good from open box. My S2 share similarities to the X1 but it is the X1 that has an added dimension. The scope of sound is grander on the X1 bass is fuller with more authority, sound a touch sweeter with that nasty large sized stage of the cans. I have wider sounding cans the AD900X but the use of that stage is what is killer on the X1s .. I am imagining just how much one would have to spend to reproduce this sound with speakers..It is amazing to me that we can get this type of sound in a sub $300 headphone..
And you told me to get the AD900X O.o
