I always found it a bit boring in the musical sense, and I heard it on plenty of great amps. It's just not a headphone for everyone, no headphone is for everyone. A system with good synergy can sometimes change ones opinion on a given headphone but not always.
Although I find its resolution and soundstage exciting, I agree that it lacks an inviting sound. Too big and cold and unforgiving, it's the successor to K702. For me it's very genre limited: orchestral. (I no longer listen to orchestral music so often so I decided to look for the better models
for the different subgenres.)
Reports indicate that K812 is rather different and AKG is
my favorite firm, but it measures poorly so I want to hear it before buying.
