Mids are definitely not recessed. Nor is the bass or the treble... Everything is in it's right place and plenty of it at that. They are extremely well balanced, yet very musical. People looking for a V-shaped signature should probably not get the Kaiser.

Also people who likes their wallet thick should look somewhere else too :p Only if I had money, I would so settle down with a good dap and K10 and probably don't touch any audio related gear for a long time. SE5way, K10 and *name a high end dap* would settle me down and I could focus on my desktop not portable system.

 

K10 sound signature and resolution seem like something I would soooo enjoy.

I'd say the K10 sounds at least as good as a $1600 ciem should. Whether you can justify blowing $1600 on a headphone or not is entirely up to you and the way you use your headphones. If you use them two hours a week for audiobooks it might be a bit much. If like me you use them 6-8 hours a day, every day at work, I'd say that a good pair of ciems is absolutely justified.

I am like you, I use my monitors a lot so that's why I have literally no problem with the price, as long as I can afford it :happy_face1:

 

Btw, there are new regulations in my lab. I am no more allowed to use any kind of earphone/(c)iem/headphone etc. There goes my listening hours :frown:

Incredible. I've had all of three minutes with them and I kind of can't make sense of everything coming at me with these. Seriously need some ear training time.

Not at an airplane is a great place to do critical listening but these things sound good straight from my iPad 3. Really good imaging, very spacious left to right. Bass thumps in just the right way. Still can't comprehend the highs these put out. Very, very nice.

I love the way they'll sound nice out of just about anything, yet scale stupendously with better gear.

I may test that by running the airplane audio through an amp and an attenuator on my next flight.
Instrument separation is the best I have ever heard on any headphone, and soundstage is freaking huge even from the iPad. I swear you can get a sense of the size of space in which each track was recorded.

But you know, I'm biased because I bought these (let's not start that argument again).
