Add these to the list of things you NEED with these cans.
Tried these for a day now. I’m not an X2 owner so I thought I’d give them a try and ignore some of the complaints when comparing them to the X2. They are fairly lacking in quantity at the lower end, when I switch on the bass siwtch on my FiiO K3 it delivers a bit more punch but I might be a basshead for all I know and in my opinion it could still use some more fun down there.
Most likely returning them because they don’t sound like anything too special. I’ve seen the re-review with pads and seen some more people comment a pad change gives them a bit more fun, but I’m sceptical whether it will be enough for me personally. Also the Dekoni pads are expensive for my wallet.
Not sure what other pair I should consider in the event I do return them. Maybe I’ll try the X2HR.
Also final note, the headband clamps my head quite a bit. Don’t know what it is but just about every headphone I wear kinda hurts on the top of my head after a while.
P.S. I got them for 200, would not pay anything more for these considering the competition.
