No need to be rude man. Everyone hears frequencies differently. Some people are more sensitive. I've heard some slight sibilance, but it has not bothered me.

Yes, headphones are incredibly personal and subjective and no pair is going to be the "holy grail" for everybody. But finding a pair that really works for you is so rewarding once you do.
I am particularly excited to receive my TH-X00 (hopefully Monday) because I've never found a pair of closed phones that I really like yet, so I'm hopeful that these may do the trick since I've seen a lot of comments that they are kind of a "hybrid" closed phone as they don't seal super tight and have some degree of sound leakage. We shall see!

I said 4 years old because the younger you are the higher frequencies you can hear.

Do you even understand what sibilance and treble spikes are? Or how and why hearing loss in higher frequencies relate to age?

Sibilance is the hissing noise someone makes when they say certain words. Well it's not bad enough that I wouldn't want the headphones. I can listen to these for hours.

So what does sibilance have to do with being 4 years old or hearing higher frequencies? Did you actually think sibilance is primarily found in the 20k Hz range?

I begin to suspect it's this very reason as well (bad recording).
This is one of the songs I listened to, and the sibilance from the female vocal is quite spiky to my ear. I hope it's just bad recording, and not my ear's fault.
I have the FLAC version of this song too, but the youtube version worked the same.

It's not as spiky to me on my setup, I'm using SHP-9500 too. Certainly you can hear the S's but not to where it's harsh and it hurts your ears really bad. Tested on Fostex T50RP MK3 too and slightly more hiss at 1:26-27'ish. But you can certainly hear her S at 1:26-27 and is slightly louder on all my tested headphones. Also tested on K553 Pro same results at 1:26-27 and also not using any equalizer or boosts.
1:10-1:30 is where you'll hear most of the S's.

Oh, "Iron Blooded Orphans". I knew I'd heard it before. Yeah, I'm picking up something that sounds noisy up above the vocals on just my KEF LS50 speakers, not sure what it is.

The sad part is the actual full length of this song is 5 minutes long, not the 3 minutes one like in this video. So if I ever want to repeat listening to this single song for multiple times, it will be like torturing myself... FeelsBadMan

I see, I currently do not use a DAC. That maybe why I do not have that harsh of a hiss.

Recording may not be the best, but it's not bad - no real sibilance issues there. If you want sibilance issues, you should check out some Vocaloid music...
