If you are basshead, then I am a basshead that love full rich layered sound that is warm non harsh, would the k10 suit me ?
I can't fully answer this because I don't yet own them. However, I HAVE been reading every forum, review, youtube video, and opinion that I can get my...ears/eyes... on.
This is what I've gotten from many others:
For a warmer and bass-heavy sound signature, the Roxanne's are the way to go. For outstanding detail and clear, fast bass with a touch more balance, then the K10. The opinion on K10 vs the unique melody Mentors seams to be still unsettled. Both camps are devoted, so its clear to me that either one is a winner with only slight differences. The Roxanne has a sound signature that's more clearly different than the other two. For people like us, who listen to EDM, I'm thinking the Roxanne might be more fun. Plus, we can adjust the bass if we want to really get our heads nodding one day.
At the same time, I like to listen to classical on rare occasion as well as listening to a, for example, Norah Jones or others. In these times, the K10 and Mentors probably sound more like you're in the room.
One thing seems pretty clear though, all three are at the top of their class, and all three have left a trail of carnage from all the minds they've blown. :-)
There's not enough of the 1964 Adel reviews out, but Joker clearly raves about it. But, he's never tried the K10's or Roxanne's.
