I'm actually curious as to what gear you have. I don't know a single headphone that is good at every type of music.

Really? So, if your a DJ, you don't adjust the sound system to the specifics of the venue your playing - different clubs have different characteristics.

Besides, a sound engineer tweaks the music to his/her liking, NOT what the artist actually intended. Saying the headphones are defective/damaged/crap is just ridiculous. Each hp has a different sound charistic, and each person does hear differently, so each of us enjoy music a different way.

Also, if you don't like using the sound enhancements and eq, then don't. Saying it's a pointless (which means USELESS) feature is YOUR opinion. Don't waste our time with this old debate please,...and it is a waste of our time.

Yea for example what's the point of having a good quality DAC if you still have to tweak your SQ to make things pretty in your little ears. Im not saying that SQ should be a "no no" option, just that it's pointless in many situations.

Your point is unvalid!!

Enough with the trolling, back on topic. Get over it - your opinion on this matter isn't the universally accepted law.

I'm just happy that Cowon is producing SOMETHING that caters to the media-consuming crowd,...that like great SQ. The specs on this might be lackluster, but it WILL sound GREAT!!!

dj christian seems woefully unaware of the difference between 'SQ' (sound quality) and sound enhancements.

BBE is with high probability the best sound enhancement technology available, even from a universal perspective, and while it could be debated whether using the actual sound enhancements with high-performing headphones is to be recommended, most people will find it actually further improves the sound, and it is VERY useful for improving the sound of lower-end headphones and speakers.

If he's talking about EQing headphones being pointless, then I just don't know what to answer. It's not. Full stop.

The UI looks pretty nice in this video and easy to use,mainly because its on such a huge resistive touch screen,none of the buttons are in any tight spots with that much space
