Been listening to it for a bit now.
And really love the sound.
Not EPIC like my Audio-GD NOS11, but DAMN!!! Best sounding phone I've ever owned!
Balanced mode is amazing; can drive an HD650/HD6xx without issue. Had my bro these it out with his HD6XX and my custom balanced cable, and he was super impressed. -- He has an LG G5, so this was like another level.
My listening was done on my SHR1540, running a custom balanced cable, with the phone set on ACG mode.
These headies are my office pair, and though a bit V-Shaped, with bass & sub bass a few notches above neutral, they are more than pretty decent in terms of detail and clarity.
I'll try them out on the HD800S & LCD-4 over the weekend.
The sound is very well defined; detailed and clear, with a noise floor that I'm unable to determine if exists.
Highs are crisp and slightly bright, but no real harshness.
Mids are clear, and detailed.. Vocals very present and focused..
Bass is tight and fast, with ample sub-bass. No muddiness experienced, nor does it impede Mids/Vocals.
Instrument separation is great, and it has a good sound stage, though it did seem a bit forward.
