FROTH-ing @ the EAR w/FAN-Tastic Cans !
This review I will keep short and sweet. If you've read my other ones, I tend to go into too much depth regarding the proprietary pragmatism that permeates the perpetually playful and pronounced protruding program that prevails I.P.-purpose.
Ya know ?
Eye Highly recommend these HP's. There is absolutely no need to crank them either .. you can if you can take it .. but its your high end's funeral. These are highly detailed and very clear without being overly-neutral or "Clear as a bell". After 17 years of listening/creating/producing Music, my ears have found "Clear as a bell" as not a thing to chase. There's nothing wrong with chasing that, but what is "Clarity" ? Is it "realism" or is it the characteristics of the Amp +Speaker ? Some cans/speakers are stupid clean, but is the signal that good ? Maybe ... maybe not. But I digress. The M70x's are clear and flat in a semi-real world kind of way. They're applicable: If you're looking for some retaining of character with a precise signal, these will do nicely. I will say these are definitely mixing/mastering cans. They're a little misleading in the tracking sense. Having said that, they'd go nicely as vocal cans. I look forward to using the M70x's a lot in the coming years.
One more thing:
If you keep these HP's at a moderate level (even not broken in), they won't fatigue you ears as much as other cans will. Just watch out for the protuberance of the diaphragm on the inside. Occasionally, you may notice it. That's all.
