Well the headphones came in and after a deep clean with Isopropyl alchol mixed with deionized water to get rid of any nicotine stank they're awesome! They sounded kinda muffled and lacking in bass on my laptop but as soon as I hooked them up to the Yamaha the brightened up and removed all the veils and man do these headphones sing, very detailed and a lot less harsh than my Superlux's, there seems to be plenty of bass, then again I'm not a deep bumping bass kinda person despite the fact my speakers have 12" woofers... They definitely need a lot more power than my Superlux's but when you feed them with something that can provide the power they need oh man! Instant bass and treble response improvement. They sound very similar to my speakers if not a little less bright. Rest of the parts to make my cable should be here tomorrow, I bought some purple, balanced, Van Damme XKE STARQUAD Microphone Cable with some black cable braid to make it look all audiophile 'n fancy.
