haha no lol i meant the album you posted, the distortion video is obviously distorted
It might be that what i'm complaining about is what other people described as 'grain'.
Track starts with a kick - fine.
Kick + Bass-line + percussion - still ok
Kick + Bass-line + percussion + pads + synths = baseline and some of the kick are not so smooth anymore, like someone connected it to a guitar amp and turned up the overdrive knob.
Now i'm debating if to post them up for sale or continue to burn them in...
i think what you're describing is resolution. Or probably decay and / or speed.
It's a $200 headphone, it's as much resolution as you can get,
If you don't like them, don't hesitate on selling them. Or keep them in your drawers if your budget aren't tight. Some people don't want to deal with the hassle of selling stuffs, and i get that POV too. he400i is a good complement to the ma900. But i like the ma900 female vocals portrayals way better than he400i.
On female vocals It goes ma900 >>> dt880 > he400i. If only the dt880 midrange is a little bit more forward, i would have no need for he400i. But as far as sound signature goes, he400i is non-fatiguing and have unrecessed midrange, and that's the primary reason i put them above the dt880.
