Mine should be here within the hour! Will compare immediately to the k7XX, THX00, DT770 Pro 250 Ohm.
**Edit** I have the Teak cups FYI
Free flow notes taken: (I have played drums for 17 years thus the drum focus)
Crisp detail on the highs, not shrill
Interesting, had to turn up amp about another notch and a half compared to THX00
Imaging nice, not HD598 crazy nice, but good
Bass is present, tame, very good, not resonant and excessive, tight, warm. Toms (drums) sound fantastic.
Vocals are awesome, can make out words in songs better.
Hi-hat detail, top notch, very very good, can hear the pressure of the hat change.
Treble can get a little to high with horns, ouch, had to turn down.
Less resonance on the bass compared to THX00, Sub-bass lower, actually prefer the bass presentation here
Mid sound juicy, vocals are sublime
Treble can be a little hot still, hopefully that simmers down, the detail is fantastic though
