While I do own a studio I did buy these to be used with my AK120 while out and about... kind of having doubts that was such a good idea.... my theory is that flat sounding studio headphones accurately represent the sound/mix put through them so as a freak de la EQ settings they would be the most fun to play with and get a good sound from as long as they are range capable which they should be.
Am I wrong in assuming this?
That is a good theory but practically it doesn't work like that because software eq adds distortion. If you eq with hardware its not as bad and actually can transform a headphone. But in all of the headphones I have had besides the lcd2, eq messed up things a lot(this is with various software programs I tried). If I were you I would definitely go the the headphone that you enjoy right off the bat. What is it that you don't like about the pro. I haven't heard it but am interested in it. I almost got it but need a not so flat bass.
