I have already said that perhaps the words echo and reverberation is too strong of a word to use. But if you listen very very carefully, don't you find that the sound in the cd-3000 tend to stay a bit longer giving it alot of ambience. In almost a way, its like the effect of closed phones but with a huge soundstage. For example, when you closed the HD-600s with tape, you get the effect of the sound staying longer. thats why I tend to hear ALOT more surrounding detail in the CD-3000 than other phones I have tried. Is because the sound is merely staying longer?
Perhaps a better word for this is the *Auditorium effect* to me.
Too many, the auditorium effect on the sound may seem extremely natural, but to me its unnatural. Again, this is personal preference so my opinion is obvious not to be taken seriously. Afterall, I still liked the CD-3000s very much and would have kept it if not for financial reasons.
Anyhow, I would have a say this was a great discussion. Its been awhile since I posted anything since I have been sooo busy testing out many headphones and headphone amps. The end is pretty near
I have tried almost all the top dynamic headphones except the R10s and Vertigo has tried all of them too except the AKG-1000s.
Hey Vertigo, what do you say we swap headphones AKG-1000 for R10s for a week heheheh
