Fails to distinguish notes in pitch. Well, they don't really fail but don't pass with flying colors either. Especially bass department is just mediocre.. The K702 Ani just made the music "sing" in comparison, for lack of a better word.
I'm open to ideas that would explain it. There might be some kind of coloration or distortion that might even emphasize the difference between one note from the next. Can't figure how to explain why this applies to the rest of the frequency response in that particular headphone model as well..
Basically what I mean is the "one-note bass" phenomenon in a finer but broader scale.
A headphone can be fast and punchy and discern bass drum hits and other low frequency information (good example: DT1350) but is, in comparison to some models, VERY monotonic. They're a poor choice for my preferred music, since it often leans on complex bass grooves and rich melodies. Think modal jazz :)
