Any experience with these? The reviews make them sound too flat for my taste. I tend to like Beyerdynamic DT 990 and Audio Technica ATH-M50 type sound signatures.

The bass is light and you really need to bend headband to get a nice seal to improve the bass. With the sound signatures you stated avoid this headphone unless you want to try out a flat eq sound.

auditioned a heavy burned in k550s w/angled pads (since I caved in on this drop Smilie ! now I have to find the angled (looked like a two part ?! pads!) - any help would be appreciated! tyia! Rock ) - wouldn't say lows are shallow as many claim (again you do need to burn 'em in! and some say it takes longer Wink in comparison to other HPs!) but ridiculously detailed and that's a part on mid-range shining! Victorius / Pedersen / Bona / Doky and I like Luc among others will sound in a better place w/most likely unheard details Wink !

anyway - drop is limited to 500 units Wink

btw - although they fold flat - ! - wouldn't recommend 'em as portables! Wink
