InnerFidelity review says the opposite and the CAL! sounds a bit improved over the Denon 1001.
Looking at specs I think CAL! and CAL!2 are same driver but CAL!2 is improved ergonomically, larger cups, better styling, etc.
No this is where I don't agree with T on this, The Cal is darker and muddier. But they are basically the same, the difference. The Denon is built with better plastics, (Stronger), Better pads, cable ect. The Cal is good but I don't know what T is hearing? Maybe he likes the darker sound?
The Denon to me just sounds more dynamic, the sound is cleaner and more open. My reason or thoughts, for one
The Denon is just built with better parts, which effect the sound, The cable, the better pads, the one piece cups, (Cal is 2 pieces )the inside felt is thicker on the Cal with muffles them more. But they both lack up against the Denon D700
