Ok I just got these and I have to say I'm underwhelmed.
I don't know if it's a defective unit, burn in requirements or what but they sound off.
They sound thin and somewhat vailed. Instruments just don't sound real. The bass goes deep, but you can't get the real texture of instruments such as the double bass.
I'm playing them out of a fiio x3. My point of comparison is the onkyo es 300s, which outside of comfort have these beat hands down so far.
Could I have a defective pair? Is it a burn in issue? Please advise.
