I have a pair of Denon AH-MM200BK headphones and listen to music on my iPhone or Macbook Pro.
When I listen to songs with them, the vocal track sounds off in the distance and quiet as do lead guitar tracks - almost to the point of not being able to hear them at all. It doesn't matter if I'm listening to iTunes, or music that I've created in either Garageband or Audacity.
I also have a pair of LG earbuds that sound fantastic and music sounds as it should - but can't handle the sub-bass, that's why I got the Denon headphones.
Can the electronics in the headphones really alter music tracks that much?
Switching between the headphones makes the songs sound totally different. The Denons do one thing that is odd - that is when the sound is panned fully to the right, I hear what I would expect. However, when panned fully to the left, the headphones appear to turn from stereo to monaural.
I wanted to see if anyone else ran into this issue before I returned the Denon headphones. I've verified that the headphones are fully plugged in (at both ends), and there's no EQ software installed/running.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
