I am curious. Do you actually get a sense of performers placed in front of you, the way they would at a live event, with ANY headphones? With every headphone i have tried, i get the performers around or behind my head. Never in front (although the HD800s do a game job there). Does anyone actually perceive the performers in front of them with headphones?
(This is a genuine question, not a challenge, btw).
If little difference is heard then why switch?
On the HE560 and the Fostex TH900 I get a more in front of you impression and yes, the drummer (if listening to well recorded rock) guitar is in front of me as are voices. On some recordings, it is more of around me and it varies.
I do not get a U frequency response from what I hear, and that is comparing to the other daps as well as the Hugo, which has been highly reviewed.
What would be nice would be to keep this a review and impressions thread. I try to give mine as I go along without saying the same thing over and over, though I imagine I do overlap at times.
