Harsh highs with Schiit Modi 3/ Magni 3.
Got my 6xx's. I have patiently broken them in. However, I have them plugged into the above combo and truthfully, I find the highs to be very piercing. Shrill. Uncomfortable. Do I like music loud? Well, yeah, if it's recorded well. But, I have to admit to be a bit disappointed. I have the Loki too but, removed it as any adjustments made require endless adjustments for each recording. I find the bass fine. Mids? Well, we all know the answer to that!
But does anyone else have a similar experience? It's certainly not an issue with the Sennheiser's. But for me personally? I'm not hearing what I've heard about this setup.
I'm wondering if perhaps I should sell my Schiit gear and get the DarkVoice? I'm not hearing enough warmth with them. Yes, if I keep volume under 12 o'clock things are generally ok but, when you try to listen even slightly longer I find fatigue setting in.
Curious about anyone's thoughts on this. Regards to all.
