hi guys sorry to bother again, my amp came and I don't dislike the dac-amp, they sound better this way. Also I think my ears are getting used to the harsh top end and maybe they're burning in a bit. if I keep the phones I will get a black dragon and hope that that rolls off that tiny bit of extra sharp noise.
serious question though:
these headphones are poorly balanced, is it my amp?
right now they're very lacking in the middle (say 300hz-1.5khz ?) and I've noticed they're seriously peaked for acoustic music. frequency wise, right now I'm getting a lot of artificial sound especially on vocals because it's boosting specific frequencies (creating an odd resonance). I was going to use these for mixing and mastering and right now they aren't suitable, can anyone confirm that this is due to my lack of a good amp?
