 Got these today. Sometimes when placing them on my ear I hear a crunching, crinkly sound especially from the left side. Is this driver flex? Should I be worried?

 

Sound is very detailed but smooth and musical. Bass isn't as anemic as I was worried.

 

They're a little power hungrier than I suspect - volume needs to be pretty high on my X3.

 

Got mine 2 days ago and I don't hear any crunching/crinkly sounds at all.  Agreed about the sound and bass. Bass sounds really good to me.

Some people have reported the same thing, but it does not affect performance.  Don't worry...be happy!!!

Yup, I have driver flex in the left driver of my 2nd pair (not my 1st pair). Never had driver flex in a headphone before!

 

I don't mind though.... It's crinkly. It's fun! :)

 

The bottom line is that this 2nd pair sound awesome, and that's all that really matters.

OK, I was kind of dubious about all the hype but these are remarkably good. 

 

The combination between clarity and tonality is amazing. They are engaging and musical while still being very accurate. Separation and instrument placement is very good. Soundstage is pretty wide/deep.

 

The bass is a weakness though. For double bass in jazz its exceptionally well articulated. However for something that needs a bit more quantity, for example the huge drums in the climax of an orchestral piece, its wanting. Other bass is hit or miss. If the bass is recorded in the forefront, it can sound very good. However if its in the background it tends to get a bit lost in the music.

 

And the fit and isolation is really good for me. I found that I have to put the headband nearly all the way back on my head, right before it starts curving down to the neck. With that placement, isolation and comfort are great and I don't feel that the ear pieces are constantly threatening to swivel on me.

 

It crushes my AKG 545s (anyone want a pair?), the Soundmagic HP100s, and the Onkyo HF300s. Its right on the level of the Thinksound On1s. A little more bite then the On1s but not as good bass and lower mids. But considering price, its no contest.

Was comparing the 90 to my m80 last night on my note 3...

The m80 has much wider soundstage

Ps... My 90 is still being burnt in as we speak.. I am going to burn it for a week non stop and will check its sound very night for any sound changes..

So far no changes that I can hear

What about depth of soundstage?

I was listening to say something by a big great world and christina Aguilera. Even though the mids are a bit more recessed on the m80 but the depth and size of the soundstage is much deeper and wideron tthe m80... Maybe the recessed mids made it sound wider?

I'm glad you are liking them.  Wait until 200 hours before you pass judgement on the bass.  If it is still not enough, you can do the bass mod.

Listening to the new House of Marley Exodus that I have picked up today from my local shop (bargain price)...and I must say that the sound is very impressive..the mid is much more forward, such smooth warm vocal...more detailed than the 90s ...but the 90s are still being burnt in...so... still waiting for them to become super :)
