    Seemingly sensible reviews with measurements

    I've been following his reviews for a while now actually. One downside is that he seems hesitant to be outright critical of gear— I love the HP-3s but calling them normal-sounding is a stretch (they're very much My-Fi), and he called the Mt. Beyer on the Amiron "subtle extra zip".

    I always liked Brent. @Lyander 's observations are correct though IMO. I think he tries too hard to "talk to the potential listener" than take a firm stance. That being said, he paints a decent sonic picture. (FWIW I thought the Amiron had the least offensive Beyer spike I've heard.)

    I got to briefly try the Amiron and will say it sounded less offensive to me than the DT990s from memory. Definitely sizzlier than the DT880s I got used some years ago (which turned out to have been felt-disc modded by a previous owner so.... there's that). Might do a back to back eventually, will report back if I get to do so.

    I've been following Brent as long as Tyll (found him before Tyll, I think), particularly when I was looking into bookshelves and subwoofers. He has done great work on subs. I follow Sean Olive (of Harman, Olive/Welti curve) on FB and Brent comments pretty often. Good dude. Not perfect, but if you don't agree with his impressions he at least shows his work and provides valuable data.

    That all being said, there will never be a new Tyll.
    Ever.
    One of a kind.
