I believe The Abyss's Mid is not colored and not push-forwarded like some Japanese headphone. The Abyss's mid is Natural, articulate and place right in the layer of the Vocal.
The abyss sound signature is different from what I have heard before. It's like listen to the Near field speaker with a sub-woofer. The Bass and Mid and Treble is place in different layer.
To be honest, even though I really don't like the Abyss's Look and feel but for the Sonic Quality wise, I decided to buy one!
PS. Since the price of Abyss is Sky-High, I will sacrifice my 009 to get funds for buy Abyss. I'm sure that I will not regret doing this.
