Is it just me but has the emperor got no clothes. I just received my DTX80s & low & behold they're as tinny as Mr Tin from Tinnyville who has just won first prize at the local tinny-sounding jamboree.
I purchased Sennheiser CX500s on the strength of great reviews but after trying to like them & after mucho reading on the net I started to wonder if the were counterfiet. They were just weak.
So in an attempt to upgrade from my Ipod Touch boxed set for a second time I opted for the
beyerdynamic DTX80. Man it was deja vu. These alledged upgrades are just the opposite. They sound tight & crisp but overall experience is just high end with clear mid range but no depth.
IS IT JUST ME?
It could be you - or that you have not pushed them far enough into your ears. There was an incredible difference between a light ear wear and a little further in. Then, the dynamics really play in, with everything becoming clear - the bass, midrange and top end.
What I don't have is experience of rivals as these are the first pair bought. Commenting as a musician and someone who likes their fi hi, I was expecting a little more for the money. Early days though (just bought y'day to go with a new HD2 phone) so will come back if the view from here changes.

This entry-level McIntosh is a solid and entertaining performer that offers plenty of functionality
Fine sense of timing and plenty of excitement makes this a fine buy
As a low-cost option, the Samsung isn’t a bad shout – not the best in class but still competitive
