My ear canal resonance also happens to coincide with this peak and unfortunately equalization is probably the only way to tame it and not affect the other frequencies too much.  I use equalizer on my idevice to set a parametric notch to control a spike like this and use it to very good effect with my Vsonic iems.  Check my blog for details on how I use it.

i think i hear that as well, i'm not even sure its the files or what it is but it does sound a bit "brash" sometimes, thats the only word i can describe it. but for the most part the treble is very impressive

One of the great things I love about this hobby/pursuit is that it is really challenging how I listen to music.

Just finished listening to a great recording of Holst - The Planets (Zubin Mehta). Lying down listening to this, I felt was stunning on the Amperior. A long listen for certain, but with such amazing depth and such clarity.

Really appreciating both the Amperior and the Hd25, such awesome headphones.

I agree with this - the treble is impressive: the whole frequency range is well covered, in fact - it's a great headphone and I'm really glad I chose it as a replacement for my HD-25s. I use them pretty much every day when on the move. On reflection, I think I may have misused the term 'dark' previously in the discussion - all I was trying to say was that for me, the Amps seem to emphasize the bass frequencies, not that the treble was rolled off in any way. While I wouldn't call them bass-heavy phones, I do find the mid-bass really punchy and forward.

I received the amperiors a few days ago. I personal prefer the comfort, more relaxed sound, and soundstage of the Vmoda M80. The clamp on the amperiors makes it uncomfortable to wear after 30min because I wear glasses. I will be looking for a trade for the vmoda xs haha.

Haha i made that exact trade except the other way around a while ago. Dont regret it since. The amps just one of a kind (obviously along with the hd 25)!

I wish I can make my Amperior comfortable as KEF M500. Sound wise, I prefer Amperior. But, they can be uncomfortable after 1 hour.

Jus ordered one from amazon. Hows the bass on this compared to ATH ESW9?
