I read somewhere that someone's new pair sounded muffled or "veiled" and when they tested one in the store it sounded a lot better. Problem is, I'm too new to know what on earth sounds right or defective. It all sounds better then my sennheiser 201hd that I gave to my girlfriend.
Even after some (modest, 15 to 20 hours) burn in, I'm not blown away. It's not bad, it just still seems a little dull I guess.
If anyone has any ideas on maybe what it is I should be hearing from a solid headphone like this one that would help me out a lot I think.
