At any given time you can go into any topic and see people have negative comments. They post their opinions. They move on.To be honest, I don't understand while those other points can be considered "objective."
I know the good points of the X9000 (and have read about the CRBN etc.) and I can find those opinions way more easily than any negative ones due to enthusiastic, positive nature that almost anybody likes more.
It's just what people want to hear who are interested in purchasing the product and feel happy, or make people less annoyed that own the product and get triggered if anything negative is pointed out, then it is "only subjective".
I've listed the group of headphones that I find more musically involving that's somehow missing from the X9000 a lot of the times, the technical (objective?) differences became less important to me (big soundstage, firm separation is different. not better. imho). Or I would say it presents itself in an odd way depending on the recording, just because it is more revealing yet smoothened out, it does not mean more pleasing or more natural. And the exact reason why I shared that list is because I compared several times.
Look at the lcd5 it came and there were a ton of people who had issues and didn’t buy or bought and sold and made their opinions WELL know in the topic. All the while other people in that topic bought it and immediately loved what they were hearing.
There are not that many X9K out there. The fact that there are a ton of positive impressions this early should be an indication that while you have a negative opinion it’s not worth being upset that you’re reading lots of positive ones.
The more time goes by I’m able to compare what I own and the X9K. I really like the X9K enough I’m contemplating selling some other headphones.
