The hp being tuned this way for Djs makes a lot of sense and I can see it being useful. It just doesn't have a lively sound. I seriously need to try it out again.
I bet that if I had an iPod with audioforge and an amp w/decent soundstage this would make literally the best portable. In situations where u cannot depend on eq then u are CRAP out of luck. When I get home I will listen to male vocals again, guitars and pianos, then electronic music.
