. I did use the EQ on particularly loud tracks. Generally I am fine stock though. Just on the very low end of the pot on the T1.
Lee, give 1.37 some more time. Your description was my initial thought but then I let myself get used to it and realized pretty quickly that the more relaxed delivery allowed me to actually hear more detail and shimmer in the treble as it was not so harsh so I could go deeper into the mix. Still finding this now and sometimes I think, hmm, maybe too smooth but then i listen with a more critical ear and realize as I said all the detail is still there, just more organic and natural I feel.
A bit like listening to a really well designed SET tube amp compared to a good solid state, initially you think your losing something then realize its the grain thats missing, not the detail!
I agree as well, more headroom, mine is driving my Etymotic ER4S much better now and oh boy what a match that pairing is!
