So just received my new AM-90's. Yesterday actually, gave them about ~10 hours of burning in.
I'm a bit worried about specification. They are supposed to be using armature driver but the driver type on the package is marked as dynamic. PICTURE
And what about the odd frequency response 100 - 12'000Hz, what happened to the "usual" 20Hz - 20kHz?
Anyway they look great and feel well made however they sound a bit weird. I'm no bass-head considering I am satisfied with the amount of bass on my HD558 (according to everyone else they sound neutral with minimal amount of bass). But using standard tips I can't hear the low end AT ALL ! When using those long tips that go extra deep in your ear, the bass seems OK but the treble feels recessed, but I feel uncomfortable with the long tips. Is it me or the phones?
Note: I'm no audiophile, haven't got trained ear and can't properly explain what I hear.
