It seems a little north of strictly neutral in the highs to me, but nowhere near the K701 or the Beyer T90's I've listened to. Ain't spending $1.5K for cans anyhoo, so unless the Prize Patrol shows up...
Lesson learned: The recording is the key, and any DSP can address only certain recordings - trying to change DSP's on a recording-by-recording basis would be a nightmare.
No, can't say that I have. Recommendations?
I had the HD800 for 3 years, and while it sounds "great", the larger consensus among audiophiles is that it's a bit too bright. That varies with the amp of course, but my experience mirrors Innerfidelity, as well as David Mahler of headphones dot com who did the renowned 50-headphone review on headfi.
Mapleshade recordings are very good quality, but with most of the tracks I sampled, the musicians sounded as though they were sitting on my lap. Really close up.
Absolutely, a crappy recording is not going to be 'saved' by crossfeed or any other kind of DSP. Garbage in, garbage out.
Here is my Zen Head. Just love it. Now the question, does an amplifier effect soundstage?
but with my system I notice detail even when the sound stage is limitedas with mono jazz recordings and other recordings that are recorded inside the box.
