i want to be careful before judging but today was my first day with sr80i and when compared against my still functioning four year old sr60 it just sounded considerably worse: harsh trebles, lower volume, overall flatter sound, and a smaller "stage".
I don't know if the "burn-in" will make a difference, i would like to be patient and give a chance, but i was expecting much better performance right out of the box.
just to be clear: the issue is not "in my head". when i had others compare the two set, they always picked the 60 over the 80. there is quiet apparent difference between the two.
does that overlap with anyone else's experience?
can burn -in make such a significant difference: will after 50-100 hours, the 80 will sound better than 60? i find this difficult to believe.
