How can any piece of equipment sound 'boring'
An 'accurate' headphone, isn't intended to sound 'good' as such. They are intended to reproduce the source material accurately.
When I use my Shure E500s and SRH840s for mastering, everything initially sounds hard and middley, as I'm used to using a pair of phones with a 'smiley eq' frequency response on a daily basis (for comfort and sound isolation) and my ears have gotten used to their sound signature.
I had beyerdynamic for many years - then got a pair of Grado 325si - I'd highly recommend trialling these too.
Cosmic Ground ordered! Thanks for the tip!!!
