That's still pretty generally broad. I find the HD800 rather bright as well, however the mk 1 on the KGSSHV is really no where near bright or annoying.
Further, the 009 is pretty damn magical and yes, just a tad bright. I'm hoping I'll get use to it because it's no where near as problematic as the HD800.
Oh yea, I'm 24 btw. So now you know someone 'of age' that defies your generalization.
I don't just find the HD 800 bright, I find it intolerable.
The Mk1 on the KGSSHV is very good. I never suggested it being bright.
Yes, the SR-009 isn't as bad as the HD 800. It doesn't have to be bright -- I've heard it rather agreeable sometimes.
Thanks for that counterpoint. Have you tried the SR-009 on, say, the EC Electra?
