    Yea, I've found the Atticus to be very amp dependent. It's very much a synergy thing and what really get's them to "open" up.

    I scored a crazy deal on some Amiron's a few weeks ago. I personally find the Amiron to be very smooth, yet detailed and musical. I've not heard a ton of Beyer's, but it's certainly the best I've heard to date. It particularity like how good it sounds on my WA2.

    Anyone done much pad rolling with the k240 Sextett's? Only tried a few pads so far, but haven't had any great matches.

    I believe @Fearless1 has done some pad rolling on them.
    My son bought a pair that came with Brainwavz angled pleather pads and they sound about the same,but more comfy.

    Yes sir I have, shure Alcantara pads sound awesome( and are comfy).

    No way! You know how many different headphones I've put the Shure Alcantara's on and they just kill the sound. It's a shame cause they are insanely comfy. I'll have to try them on.

    Agreed, I hate them on everything except the sextett and the HE 400

    They sound great on my he4, and denon d2k
    They did not sound good on the denon with stock cups though. But wood cups and a few very minor mods, and they're wonderful.

    Hey guys. What’s the best headphone on the lower end to f the budget for doom, black and death metal? I have meze 99s which I love but I want something I’m less precious about when I’m out and about. Sorry ocd sufferer.

    I bought these last month and they are absolutely terrific. But they really come alive with the EQ app HF Player by Onkyo, as someone had previously mentioned. I returned the beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 32 Ohm that I purchased first. Can’t believe they sound this good AND have the option of using either via cable or BT.

    Sooo I accidentally gave the Campfire Cascade a listen just now with some Metallica, I am trying to respectfully not listen till I hit the 100+ hour burn in mark. I don't believe in burn in but Ken recommends it so I'll abide by his recommendation before I start seriously listening.

    Non the less who boi... these bad bois are METAL APPROVED!!!!! Let me TELL YA something! Quite good... in fact I'ma go sneak another listen >.> yea man these little 42mm drivers can REALLY kick!!!!!

    Overall I have to say these have a very mean sound, great for metal!!! Like... I kinda think I'm going to get in trouble with my wife again >.>

    Compare it to the he4

    Well, they're supposed to sound like the Vega, which is my go-to IEM for metal, so not surprised.

    hehe, there not as fast/powerful/textured in the lows as the HE 4, I've yet to find anything that is... the HD 800/LCD 2 come close but nothing imo beats the HE 4 bass just yet
