320kbps/FLAC -> foobar+wasapi -> Traktor Audio 2 (Cirrus Logic) -> ATH-AD900X
Listening to FLAC versions of the Les Mis (2012) soundtrack, Circa Survive's Blue Sky Noise, and ATB's Sunset Beach DJ Session 2 has been wonderful. These cans truly shine with every genre, rock and its various subgenres, especially. The bass is, as dsnuts has already posted, very well balanced against the rest of the spectrum, on top of being [b]present[/b]. I've lost count of how many hours I've put into them so far, but they're growing on me more and more.
Ya this is my experience with them as well. I am curious to know just how these stack up to their higher end brothers. Seriously I am having a hard time trying to find a weakness to their sound..
-Very easy to drive
-Marvelous Stage, expansive
-Detailed yet very controlled
-Balanced to a -T-
-Grunt when called for, I think even Grado guys would be impressed.
-Bass when called for
-Vocals will give you goose bumps
-Physically light and non fatiguing in any way or form
-With the right source projects a very 3D sound.
-Not overly forward or recessed in any part of the sound
-Plays all my tacks stunningly
-Because of their detailed sound and stage. I am willing to bet will be one of the best cans for gaming possible. Will try them out with some soon.
Seriously for what I payed for? Lol. Does it get any better? I feel I hit the headphone jackpot lotto with these.
