In bass part maybe yes but otherwise don`t agree. Look at X1 frequency graph. To get bass & kick tight with X1 it needs 1) better low-impedance cable 2) amping (FiiO not recommended but will do ok)

 

Of course they are not dead-flat and neutral but will do ok. Though, for studio purposes there are many better cans.

X1 is something You should use with final music product.

Why Fiio not recommended?

That`s what I have read from impressions that FiiO amp doesn`t give so good results paired with X1. Don`t remember which FiiO exactly. I guess it`s about warm amp + warm sided X1.

While I was using the v-moda cable and listening to some records I was noticing an almost flabby low-end with a gloomy overall sound and before I completely gave up I tried a somewhat 'studio use' cable I had lying around with this and oh my, the sound improves immensly!! I can't believe how much it changes... it's like... such a tight sound now. Here's the cable in question http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/3-5mm-Mini-Jack-Cable-2m-Car-AUX-Cable-Stereo-Audio-Cable-1-8-Jacks-/130977154134?pt=AU_Pro_Audio&hash=item1e7ed8c456 so cheap!!

 

However, the comfort is killing me... The bottom of the cup doesn't reach the bottom of my ears and I get a headache fast. Any suggestions?

I bent the top band like innerfidelity suggested and it fits now.  I have a size 8 head.
