Agreed, they are really amazing. But their male vocals are quite a bit recessed, together with a very forward female vocals makes the vocal balancing quite bad.
Like mentioned we do all and I mean ALL hear them differently, not sure what you are playing them on but with my Opus # 1 black filters with balanced cables I miss nothing with either genders vocals! Not saying you don't but I'm not experiencing either condition with mine. I'll try some other sources though to see if I can hear those issues on another source Could be that I'm a far cry from any kind of a Golden Ear
