Has anyone found the midrange on these headphones a little lacking? Male vocals in songs like Holiday by Green Day sound sort of distant at least to me. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be how they sound since I'm new to high end audio.
These cans probably have a wider soundstage than you are used to. Are you using an amp to drive these?
Its recommended to use an amp with these to bring out their potentials :)
An amp will help bring the headphones to life including the vocals. Headphones with larger soundstages do have distant vocals though. You can think of these like being a few rows back where something like a pair of Grado's would put you right on stage.
I'm confused, I don't really understand if it's better to be on stage or not.. I don't get the simile
Yeah. That's going to be my next priority but I'm currently broke :(
It is up to your personal tastes. I prefer wider soundstage for gaming, classical and softer rock usually but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy all types of music with all types of headphones. To me, different headphones bring out different aspects of a track and that can be enjoyable in its own way. For example, listening to Nine Inch Nails on AKGs is totally different than listening to Nine Inch Nails with Grados. I actually prefer a lot of NIN tracks with wider soundstage headphones (like AKGs) as I think it brings a tripper experience. Again, it is personal taste and why I have multiple types of headphones
