Yesterday I received My Sony MDR-Z1000 & I was really happy with its sound & comfort. It is a huge step forward from my Presonus HD7 (Superlux HD668B Clone). I listened to music with Z1000 for 2 hours.
But today I wanted to go outside and I borrowed my brother cheap Sony MDR-EX100 which costs around 30$. I was listening to this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxDMHiJb7Vs) & I was shocked when I noticed that I hadn't heard that noisy texture (noisy rumbling-like sound) in the first 10 seconds of the song on my Z1000. When I came back to home, I tried my Z1000 again to be sure of this matter & I even noticed that I can hear that part much more easier on my broken 10$ Philips headphone than Z1000. On Z1000, that part can be heard if you try hard, but it is buried and muted.
I'm going insane. I can't believe it. Z1000 is better at everything else, and it should be, but an 30$ IEM & a broken 10$ headphone surpasses my Z1000 that costs 15 times more in one important area.Why?
By the way, my source is iPod touch.
Thanks in advance
