i loved the denons, but they where a little too sibilant for me at times.
Ahh yea that's no beano. But the w1000x still has that issue. Adele's voice espically can bring out the VERY rare harshness in the treble. How ever a good THICK tube does help, but at the loss of sound stage and bass tightness. Still I'm not at ALL sensitive to Treble. It doesn't and hasn't physically caused an issues with me for a while. Just a quality thing. It sounds bad, but again. With many mods the w1000x does not have as many issues as it used to. Although edm is still a little too... ENERGETIC for my tastes, but that's what those woody mids are for. detracting from that not 100% perfect treble.
Still I need to buy one. How would a D7k Fair out of something like a Matrix M Stage? [I have and ALWAYS belive that headphones make a great investment! Screw gold, every one wants a Modded w1000x and the like <3]
