Exaggerate! Exaggerate! Exaggerate! LOL JKJK
For the record, after a month or so with the 560 w/the stock Focus pads it came with, driven by a Rudistor RP010B amp, I get amazingly great results with no abrasive highs, believable staging in all dimensions,
controlled transparent pretty deep bass, a great balance between natural sound and excitement, and an overall feeling this is some of the best, maybe the best in general, sound I have ever heard from headphones.
Insight and musicality combined.
It's the kind of sound where I just listen for hours, and keep clicking on more Jriver stuff until I'm too tired for more and I'm motivated to rip more of my CDs each day.
(I do use a Moon Silver Dragon balanced cable though; it gives smoother sound that I like w/o loss of detail or insight.)
I am not talking about burn-in necessarily if you read my post. I was simply asking whether or not Tyll thinks it might tone down over time.
My solid state amp & tube/hybrid amp for the HE-560:
The HE-560 sounds absolutely effortless off these amps. Smooth, wonderfully detailed, open, and dynamic. Haven't said much cause I'm too busy enjoying the sound. I highly recommend both these amps for the HE-560.
