What are you comparing them too? Did you compare them to other 'flat' studio monitor headphones or speakers? Maybe you just prefer bright. Nothing wrong with that, but compared to other 'flat' studio monitor headphones they are definitely bright....with no eq added of course. You'll find lots of folks remark on their brightness in the upper mids if you do a forum search, while probably an equal number find them neutral. It's always like that....people hear differently..
V6 is neutral. Not bright at all like a Shure
Same as above.
Actually, it's a little dark to me. But that's my slightly dark receiver playing at them.
You guys need to switch off the EQ once and a while. What makes the V6 sound bright is the more forward soundstage over the AKG. The highs are placed forward as the bass is more in the soundstage with the mids working in between. That's why you hear the highs more.
To me, I don't see much of the mids. For some reason my ears have a difficult time picking up them like a balanced can.
