Based largely on my trawling through this forum, about a year ago I bought some Nu Force NE-7M and loved them to bits. But I decided to step it up a notch and see what I could get that was better - so ended up going to some NE-700X. On the basis that I really liked the sound of the NE-7Ms, I figured this could only be better! But even after about 20 hours burn in, I just dont like the the NE-700X... Its brighter and harsher and just not as enjoyable. I can tell they're good - some recordings sound amazing, but overall... I'm wondering if its because theyre too revealing for what comes out of an iphone... It reminds me of some high end Focal speakers I had in a car once - on some recordings they blew me away, but mostly the metal tweeters were just too bright and revealing and ended up sounding "tinny" almost - I ditched them for some silk tweeter Hertz units that were much much warmer, and all was well again in that car So. On the basis I like the NE-7M and its fairly warm bassy sound (with its still good capability in replicating the highs, but without overpowering everything else!), what would be a good recomedation for their replacement?
