Just looking into that eBay deal you spoke of... I have been spellbound by your writing!
Is it still available?
Actually I just grabbed the new WS99's from AT and couldn't be happier. They have basically everything I wanted in a closed can. Comfy no clamp look great have amazing clarity and detail but are major slappers in the bass department. Super fast super aggressive bass but always in line and never trying to hard like the COP's and a lot easier to run and more neutral than the DT770's.
I love em and may start to invest in other AT products if this is how their higher end stuff is.
Thanks for the read.
Ummm this review is really weird.
You do know COP has 4 settings?
Settings 1/2 and even 3 do not have a recessed midrange, I don't know what you are talking about. 770 has more recessed mids.
Settings 2 and 3 have tight punchy accurate lows.
Really inaccurate review.
Well seeing that this was my impression of the COP I clearly understand why you don't understand it. My thoughts and opinions are exactly that. My own
The COP's that I had which were one of the first batches to be released were not very good. The bass was sloppy at slot 4 and not very good in slots 1-3. Felt weak and held back quite a bit. Clarity was nice along with the detail and soundstage which are obvious Beyer traits but the bass was a mess. It bottomed out very easily and was muddy and slow. The DT770's do have recessed mids (everyone knows this) but the overall layout of the sound is miles ahead of the COP's IMO again I say IMO.
Listen, tons of people think that Beats by Dre are the greatest headphones the world has ever produced and you know what, to them they are right! We all are entitled to out opinions and mine is that the COP's have the right idea but the wrong sound. If you like them and think they sound better that's awesome!! You have a great looking flexible CAN that suites your needs. Cheers. But that won't be the same for everyone just like my thoughts will not be the same for everyone either. It is what it is.
Thanks for the read tho.
