This is the sort of review [and the kind of reviewing] that belongs in Inner Fidelity. But it looks like Rafe Arnott does not deign to actually review anything, particularly if it a product that addresses the actual needs of folks who regularly listen to headphones, or gear that is reasonably priced.

FWIW, I just got Sennheiser's HD 579 open back headphones, requires more power that my Fiio X1 can provide, has a big eq spike in the octave above the presence range, sounds great with classical music, particularly piano and harpsichord. Decent bass as well.

I really miss Tyll Hertsens.

These look like the successors to the HD 558, which were my first pair of quality headphones. Very good sound for the money, but the Massdrop HD6XX can be had for an additional $50 and are worth it.

I love these cans. I have a pair of vaunted Jubilees and find them a bit too much sometimes. These 569s are much better balanced for true audiophile listening. I've heard "professional" monitor cans (ATHs come to mind) that sound like overboosted crap compared to these. Matter of fact, these would make excellent pro monitors. I'm really happy with these as my closed set. I'll keep the Jubilees as my open set. If you're ready to hear things as they are supposed to sound, give the 569s a shot.
