With the wife increasingly commandeering my Oppo PM3's, I picked up a pair of NightOwl closed backs (paid $400US) for use when open back won't do (in bed, traveling, etc.). As with so many others, I am frustrated by their positives (resolution/clarity, comfort on head, etc.) undermined by the warmth bleeding into the mids. A bit of EQ tinkering has helped but certainly not "fixed" it. As Marv purr1n said in his initial NightHawk review, some music pairs well while some brings out the flaws very obviously. Would be interested in anyone's EQ curves for the NightOwl if your willing to share.
