I recently auditioned these headphones and was very impressed with them; "rough-sounding"? Well, I must have missed something...

I own them, and feel they have more energy at the top , which I like with watching movies، and sometimes I use the pads with some music

Interesting. Is it straightforward changing the pads? Have you tried the open version of the Aeon?

is the bleeding edge of low technology. Yes, they are easy to change.

My only very minor criticism is the headband adjustment doesn't have quite enough friction and will slowly slide out of position.

I've had the same problem on the closed aeons. I had to tighten the set screw beyond what I thought reasonable.

Mr. Paul McGowan and the happy lads at PS Audio in Colorado have finally started taking orders for their New & Improved Power Plant ( the P20 ).

Paul is claiming this design is their ( PS Audio's ) "finest expression of performance to date"! Phew, that's a hell of a claim, doncha think?

Anyway, I'm anticipating that you and your lads will all want to experience this device and that PS Audio will be more than Anxious for you to turn your writers loose on this new tool which is already being evaluated in the Asian Marketplaces.

I will pay close attention to every nuanced observation that you can describe and phrase.

Engineering wise, PS Audio is on one hell of a series of superbs yet they seem rather cautious about braggadocio and hubris.

ps. the P20 weighs 105 lbs, costs $10,000 ( $100 per lb. +/- ), it's a different design concept than their P10 and P5.

If it's any good, the lads will have a good feeling about sharing their discoveries.
