Although I do get the sense that there is more focus on the treble due to the added transparency/clarity. It's more fatiguing for me with long sessions and I have to listen at lower volumes. Although this can be beneficial, for me it then makes things boring because I want to go a bit louder but cannot comfortably. But if you love this type of thing then more power to you. It works well on certain tracks for me but is not my preferred Op-Amp. We all do hear things differently
For me, my ear is spoilt by higher treble phone all this while so when I tune back to fitear, I find it a little dull.. It's not like the details are gone or anything like that. I would say the sound is very detail and full. But just hope to get the high lifted up a bit. The fitear sound very thick and its even much fuller than hd650, it just has this magic of surround and full size power that keeps me coming back for more. It makes the hd650 thin and light by direct comparison.I did up the treble frequency by a little and its the perfect sound I wanted. Cymbal crash lightly are vivid and visible at low volume. Without the eq, I need to raise the volume to feel the cymbals.
There is a setback in eq, it's tilting the fr in way that is not being originally recorded. So I was hoping to naturally bring the treble up a little with no eq. Yes by organic to say...
I just hope to get the treble up to a level similar to the treble being switch on, on a ipod, but by organically.Edited by Audiowood - 10/6/12 at 9:43am
