PF IX + O2 amp = It's so bright that I can see the sun at night.

I agree. That may have been the best thing I heard on the PF VIII. And just in general.

Yes.

 

I have enjoyed the Van Halen high res set from HDTracks on these phones. Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds Live at Radio City is sublime with them. There are also several other links scattered throughout this thread that are good. Those are just a few that come to mind. I probably wouldn't have this phone as my only phone if you are primarily into rock, however.

Rearrange those lights in the back to flash KISS and you have a winner.

PF IX (and TG334) is on its way to me. :). Can't wait!

 

*hopefully I can appreciate its strengths. I listen to pretty badly mastered stuff, but I seem to have steel ears, so hopefully it won't bother me too much.

But if you have steel ears the PFIX will go cling cling when you put them on.

It'll resonate beautifully.

I thought you said you'd ordered the 1601SS not 1602SS (aka PF IX). Both 160X models are very forgiving of poorly mastered material. It's the FI-BA-SS which can be very revealing, so you should be okay. Prepare yourself for a sonic shock, though... maybe.

I found the X-G i have to not be forgiving of badly mastered/low bit rate. It sounds awful, also i use them with an O2 amp and do not find them bright at all. Review is almost complete.
