Yeah lol. Almost all of the criticism towards this review on here and also on reddit are about the subbass roll off. Amir's main talking point was the distortion in the midrange, which I think pathetic for a $3000 pair of headphones.
Many thanks for the review @amirm ! I bought a pair of these headphones 4 years ago and I don't really liked how it sounds and decided to let it collecting dust in the closet since then. I just took them out and listened to them with the suggested EQ, they actually sound freaking good I'm...
Can you produce CSD/waterfall graphs using the 45CA? Could be beneficial for detecting headphones with resonance issues, like the Monoprice M1060. I own a pair, the ringing is sometimes unbearable on certain tracks.
Vintage German speakers are the best! I bought a pair of the old MB Quart Two XL floorstanders for $65 some time ago, it has better bass extension and quantity (not surprising vs bookshelves) and far better detail retrieval than my GR Research X-LS Encores.
