Have been using them since I got them with only a few hours swapping to my other pairs (PortaPros, M40x, AD500x, T50RP mk3 and K-712 Pro’s) to give better points of reference. I am not that well versed in the speecific terminology
They are by far more comfortable than the M40x,
don’t isolate nearly as good. Correction: They isolate differently. Very impressed with the feel and finnish (then again, they are my second most expensive pair).
Sound wise, they have one quirk I can’t put my finger on yet. Somewhere in the mids there is some oddness.
Pentatonix - Hallelujah sounds absolutely fine, all voices present and full.
Eurielle - Carry Me sounds recessed or distant.
In direct comparison to the K-712 Pro’s, and exclusively listening to music where vocals are the main attraction, I’d take the K-712’s
Bass is good quality. Quantity is less than I expected, which in a sense is good. Never drowns out anything. Similar to the K-712 Pro’s in this regard, just with the bass boost that comes from the RP-HD10’s being closed back. If you need “a little extra low end”, give them some power (tested on BasX A-100 with limiting resistors engaged).
Mids are the odd one, as mentioned above. Fine for instruments in Blues/Rock/Metal/Electronic
Treble is in check, no piercing spikes and not a Beyerdynamic-V (I dislike that in particular). Does not need dense foam/toilet paper mods like the T50RP. All good here!
- Cables feel oddly flimsy
- On both cables, one end has a molded on plastic connector and the other is a metal one
- Very comfy (thick cushion on the headband & soft ear pads) + the two way adjustment
- They do not take well to a heavy bass boost
