I just got these today and experienced something ive never experienced in a headphone. It started out good. It seemed to handle the old stuff well. Simple Minds New Gold Dream sounded great and promising. Waterfront, Speed your love to me, Up on the Catwalk np. All extended and remastered. But as soon as i got to the later stuff it started to fall apart. Light Travels was badly distorted. It is a demanding recording though. But when i ran Honest Town through it, the Enterprise starting breaking up. I was choppy! It sounded like i was listening to it through a fan.
This headphone can sound great with some recordings but bad with others. Its a little muffled. Maybe a light veil? And it gets distorted. I havnt tried any mods on it so maybe it will improve. But its unreliable as it is. Not sure what Z was going on about with this headphone. But for me its going back.
