March 20, 2014 Good Headphones, But Too Harsh For Me

I was very excited to give these a listen after reading so many good things about them. That excitement was short lived when I put them on and listened to my favorite rock songs, which these are praised for reproducing so well. To clarify, I currently own AKG Q701's, Phillipps Fidelio X1's, Audio Technica M50's and Fischer Audio DBA-02 MKII. I am no stranger to good sound. That said, these are not for me. Yes, they sound great and are clear and detailed, but these headphones have a harshness and aggressiveness that makes them hard to listen to. They are very bright and in your face, a trait I thought I would enjoy for faster paced songs but in the end, did not. I wanted to like them but couldn't

I am quite satisfied with the quality of the sound. Some people may find these uncomfortable. Bear in mind that after a break-in period, they will become comfortable. Since these are over-ear and maintain a continuous pressure on your ears, I have found that when I bite down (something we all do occasionally and unconsciously), I actually muffle the sound somewhat. A minor annoyance. It seems to have improved with the break-in.
