Blah, I got too excited when I saw 580.
I am referring to the Ultrasone HFI-580
I like High Gain, EQ2 and Battery in High Power. High Power improves highs.
EDIT: I recommend volume at 50% with simplynoise and then listening after 24 hours. Then just really bass heavy music (EDM) at the loudest volumes possible (without distorting) and listening after another 24 hours.
EDIT 2: They're all but "dull" or "recessed" ; )
EDIT 3: Maybe you are accostummed to very bright phones (which I don't like personally) and these are a little bit dark (which I like).
Everything in my arsenal is AKG that I use so... I wouldn't know. Most likely just drivers were tight, been using pink noise since the post & Testing them out now during the process everything is already improving.
Refer to above! :) pinknoise seems to be the best as it covers a lot of frequencies so it would be hitting everything. Anything but bass//drum loops at first really.
In the end I love my K167; I'll pitch in my review once I am in EU though~
what about soundstage on these?
Coiled cable, very comfortable to me, can wear them for 12 hours with no fatigue, treble is as good or better than K701 (it's superb), bass is much tighter and punchier (with lots of detail), mids a bit warm. Soundstage is phenomenal. Just the right width and depth. Hope this helps.
Yeah, from all the phones I've had, these are the ones that most benefit from burn-in. Even volume gets louder and bass stronger. They sound really "weird" out-of-the-box. After burn-in (including a 24 hour session with EDM at the loudest volumes possible - heavy driver shaking exercise), they're one of the most revealing phones I've heard, since bass to treble.
I read some posts saying the build quality is not great? What is wrong with the build quality?
Are these revealing and bright headphones like D2000 or are the revealing and dark like HD650?
I don't mind the weight, and the build quality is a big plus for me. Can you be more detailed on the isolation though? How much do they leak, and how much do they block? Is the bass system a god one?
Maybe you should post that and your other impressions on the K267 thread.
Oh yeah, baby!!! Thats talk (Hi Velodyne VTrue's. lol )
I think nothing's wrong with the build quality, if you don't put the feet over them :p
Revealing and a bit dark, not as bright as the D2000s.
