After several hours listening Kind of Blue over and over comparing the same bars, I have more mixed feelings : a certain clarity and transparency,
but tones seem not always natural, with a marked sibilance on the trumpet (which is annoying, speaking about Miles Davis, king of high dynamic
contrasts in all smoothness).
There are certainly more information than with my old B&O 8, but it seems strangely not in place.
I'll also try the Sony MDRX1000, which seem highly regarded here and elsewhere.
The upside here is that it confirms just how true to life my main system is.
