My issue with them is that the highs sounded quite distant, something that others have noticed as well. For example, when listening to a Bob Dylan track, the acoustic guitar just sounded further away then on the P5.
So, what I'd like to know is, has anyone managed to improve the sound to fix the issue that I hear? For example, some things that may be possible targets for investigation:
Amplifier - would an amp be able to bring back the highs...? I'm not sure one would make enough difference...
Cables - does one of the included ones sound different to the other? Has anyone made new cables for them?
Ear pads - Tyll reports that removing them improves things a lot, but there's clearly other issues with removing them or cutting part of the foam out.
Positioning - I've read that this can have an impact, but my (admittedly brief) listen didn't suggest much impact here.
EQ - I'm not a fan, but can it improve things?
Any suggestions? And please don't just suggest getting a different headphone, I'm aware of what alternatives are available, but I'm interested in what can be done to improve these headphones.
