Got these..cups off....low-end reminds me of my good old Audeze LCD-2.1's. Phantoms have a more natural tonality,a 'sweetness' to the way they deliver.. nudge more microdetail but less subs...if I could just combine the two...this cruel game of endgame cans hunting as I can only keep 1 set. M1060C lighter weight than I imagined..Audeze 2CB seemed a bigger chunk of weight from memory. Earpads feel same quality grade and compression as 2C/B....better than Phantom stock pads which are shallow and don't seal so well. Would have been good to see a Valour review guy expanded comparison to 2CB cups on and 2C cups off....1060C not as dark as my prior 2Cs....could hear that 2-3K scoop and spike kind of with the cups on...something 'off"....2CB uses a resistor network glued in the cup to even that out, but side-effect IMO was too much bite/attack to the delivery vs buttery 2Cs... My cups grain kind of 90% to angle I'd put them on personally...not much of a match in bookend of grain...one has supreme grain...the other not so much...but I'll strip them both down to Zebrano natural tone anyway. Free VST/AU Audeze Reveal Plug-in can tweak the sound around with about 20 presets and a dry/wet dial... I did use 2CB to block out awful cafe music in past....do not care what cans look like in public in the slightest...music soon pulls you in..haha....so I'm looking out for a message from the cups kit guy in this thread to see if it looks good to add this click-on/off kit to them for outside and cups off all the way in private.... Voices for netflix movies...Phantom seems to have the edge...less added brogue/grain to male voices... What a ramble. Time for more 'Depth Charge' tracks to test out these monsters.
