im using a pair of dt770 (250 ohm) and e11/jds cmoy. i was listening to a track by the glitch mob called "between two points" and part of the lyrics are "the shortest distance between two points is a lie". what i heard was "the shorTSeSTS diSTSanCE beTSween TSwo poinTS iS a lie...".
i tried eq'ing down between 4-8 khz and playing around but this had little effect. the sibilance isnt enormous but its bugging me, can anything be done to correct it? is it because of the cans? the song is a 320kbps mp3, is it maybe a bad file?
i tried listening to the track directly from my laptop and the sibilant t's and s's where still there so im assuming its not the amps or a cable. i tryed listening to the track on youtube and from my phone just for the sake of trying something different and sure enough - t's and s's. would an external dac help with this? again, its not a huge piercing hiss but its there and it shouldnt be.
thank you all in advance,
