Paul Cash, an audiophile from Hi-Fi Trends, tried our Hi-X65 to hear what they have to offer when it comes to listening to music, not necessarily mixing or mastering (which they are designed for). "One of my favorite aspects of the X65’s sound is its spaciousness. Listening to “Riders on the Storm” by The Doors, I was highly impressed by the soundstage’s width plus its depth and separation. The guitar parts seemed like they reached out beyond the earcups, and the vocals were nicely focused in the center. It was very speaker-like."
