First impression was that these cans are very large comparing my previous headphones. Which also means less heat buildups while wearing on long sessions. I expected the earpad foam to be memory foam(which is in k712). None the less, its comfortable than the leather based earpads.
About the sound, when in full loudness, I feel like they are a bit sibilant(peak at high frequencies from 11500hz to 13500hz) - tested with linear pink noise and band pass filtering - I also made sure its not the amplifier.
Other than that, at 85% loudness, its pretty flat.
Great set of cans. Despite 62 ohms require a larger amp to bring out the true potential. Sound detailing is great..no distortion...flawless n balanced. If not going by made in china batch which must be left behind now considering bigger brands also are following the bandwagon..there are not actually Austrian made as shown at many places.
