e11 is all charged up and had a listen. i have the e11 setting on EQ 1 Low Gain.  EQ 2 sounded good too and the bass never seemed to get away from the K167, but when i listened to the Prodigy, it was too much bass for me. didnt know that was possible.

 

the e11 for sure enhances the sound.  it doesn't change it.  

 

lots more break in to go.  will leave the K167 on my itunes.  i have 24.3 days worth of songs according to itunes, so that should do it. :)

 

so far i am impressed.  if thes really seem to improve a lot, i have found a steal.  if they improve moderately, i feel i made a great choice and if they stay the same, i love them.

 

time will tell.

   24HR Pink noise, and then 24HR using miows playlist, works amazingly.

They're not recessed in the mid bass. They just ave the right quantity and I'm supposed to be a ("moderated") basshead. Cough, cough!!! Just AMP them/EQ them ; )

 

EDIT: The bass is better than the D2000s.

miowwww, I probably won't be carrying an amp around college, so how does the mid-bass quantity do without one? Now that I know the bass isn't muddy and has sub-bass, I'd like to know about the mid-bass quantity, unamped. How about compared with D2k, PRO900, M50?

And you guys can go on about how I'm not a real audiophile, not amping or modifying or whatever ;)

what does pink noise really do for phones?

just found 9 hrs of it on youtube....i guess i can do that instead of my playlist from itunes....

Closing on 10 hours now and I'll have to say miow was correct.  Sorry to have doubted you.  The bass is filling in more.  Still has that wonderful sub-bass but it sounds fuller.  I don't think it's brain burn because I haven't listened to it since the first two hours.  Not sure if it's in the area of mid-bass or the sub-bass has just gotten fuller but it's more dominant.  

 

This is a very nice sounding headphone for sure.  It is one of the best value headphones out there no doubt.  There really is no part of the sound spectrum that is offensive/overblown.  Other companies really need to take note on what AKG has done with this headphone.

Saw lily had success with pink noise and then miow's playlist.

 

Wondering what you are using for burnin?

post #777 of 1488
I've tried pink noise, white noise, etc. but just creating a playlist of a couple dozen beat driven, bass heavy electronic tunes cranked at a level barely listenable has worked for me.

Who wants to give my playlist a try, just request by PM. I'll be glad to provide :-) These songs were carefuly choosen looking at graphic equalizers to work all the frequencies at the highest levels and really exercise the drivers.

Not so much without an amp, my friend. I would prefer to carry one. The mid bass quantity amped is the same as D2k, PRO900 and M50 amped. Unamped I don't know as I never used those phones unamped :s

I'm glad the thing's happening to you too, Danny. I think it's not-brain in too, even because I compared them o my bassier IEMs and they have the same quantity now ; )

Dude, when you got the time, take the battery off, look at a button there that says High Power/Low Power. Put it at High Power. Makes a difference. ; ) I also prefer High Gain, not sure why you don't :-)

Ah my first post was buried so I'll ask again. Can anyone give a detailed comparison with the Beyerdynamic DT770? It seems like the one headphone most similar to this one, closed with similar sound signature with good sub-bass, treble, and detailed but recessed mids, and an almost identical price range.
