I must say, I was worried about getting this headphone. However, I listened to it. My mind changed.
(using Schiit stack Magni/Modi through my desktop using velour pads).
I used to listen to Grado SR80i and Sennheiser HD518s.
Overall - very strong! I love the bass, midrange, as well as the mids. The clarity and 'detail' is incredible.
I love this headphone, and have a feeling it'll only get better with more usage. My only concern is that certain vocalists, typically associated with screamo, seem VERY recessed. Examples - Red Hot Chili Peppers sounds amazing, while Tool's vocalist barely gets above the harmony guitars and percussion. Maybe it's just those tracks, but it seems like it's a hit-or-miss with artists.
