. Soon as I go back to that little BH amp providing them some power they sound like a completly different headphone. The mids clear up, the clarity comes out and they sound great again. I'm craving to try with some different amps. Rather picky with sources I'm finding.
That is the word I am looking for "compressed". DARK huh? thats weird maybe the amp. I think of them as slightly bright with a warm bass. On some songs the vocals sound good and on others they sound over compressed. I don't know if it is because heavily compressed vocals sound horrible or what. I don't know. They do sound better than at first....I am too lazy to take all of the filter material I put in them to find out.

what was their competition?-NADS I was gonna try those but then saw how small the cups were and skipped it. I prefer them to the momentums though the momentums are a bit more transparent in the mids they don't have the same instrument separation and soundstage or punch.
also you are not the only one that has tried them and found them not to be stand out.Where did you try them?
all I know is that vs the akg 545 I put these on and my head starts moving automatically. Part of the fuel behind my subjectivity is that I listen to a lot of studio production and stuff I have to write music to.... they have the attack, punch, tonal balance and tuning to make me excited to use them. They are also detailed and reveal bad production more so than the akg k545 similar to the 7520.
