I'm quite confident it will be on the contrary.
But some folks ideally preferred just a little more in relative output.
Increasing the top end, but maintaining body and control.
I believe referring to air and sparkle.
The Globe energy for me is excellent...

Lol, I am seriously contemplating.
But had u12t, u18t - I kept the W50 for the legendary BA bass, un-BA like low end character including a very slight mid-bass bleed on some demanding tracks...

@ehjie, I highly recommend you add the Legend to your collection. I think you’ll love it!

A full size headphone couldn't be better.
There's no need for additional amping - direct to source
Source: a Pro level cd player
Very good Bass rumble and texture without any bleed through the lower mids.
Mids - fantastic as ever, not forward, on even outputs as the rest of the instruments. very good separation.
Treble is natural sounding, very good extension.
Expansive out of head staging, Immersive sound and excellent 3d effects. very good separation.
Albeit created for the studio and events, the '450 has great dynamics and technicalities, and the Volt Totem give them justice
but at the same time equally entertaining having a smooth, full bodied, dense front end...

Should have phrased it more accurately, not too energetic yet detailed. :)

If Kato's aren't the way forward when it arrives then this new triple DD from penon sends shivers down my spine as I hear they are well known for there mids. Now the main question is when will they be out and there pricing especially. Most people will buy on 11.11 so I am hoping penon have a good date in mind and tell us about the pricing so people can make there mind up if they should hold out on them.
