MLE you asked if I liked them. I do quite a bit just have to get used to the signature
I am honestly just not used to having mids that strong. Having vocals front and center is little disorientating in a good way. The soundstage also feels very different as well. To me the treble feels rolled off but of course it would being used tothe bright DT990s.
So yes I like them. Just haven't reached love yet due to them being SO different from my DTs, Superlux's and CAL's(Which excite me every time I put them on.).
But....you used to have the Q701s. Seems like you would already be a little used to the signature/soundstage....
