Pretty much the same reasons why I can’t stand the original Nighthawks. The bass elevation is alright, I like bass, but the way it smothers the midrange without any treble to balance it out is an instant non-starter for me. Surprised you found it lacking in detail though since I thought it was reasonably competent at resolution, but I can see how the “mud” could obscure nuances.
By the by, I very nearly thought that was actually the original Nighthawks in your photos! Reflections on the cups had me fooled, haha. The OP6T should be capable of excellent photos (there’s noticeable grain to your shots), just need some good sunlight to make up for the sensor’s limitations.
Haven’t watched the video, but thanks for the review! I wasn’t planning on going out of my way to try the Carbons, but this served to affirm the idea :))
