I immediately noticed that the bass was better. ALL OVER better. Firmer, deeper, tighter — the whole nine yards. And I could play the LP VERY loudly with no problems at all.
Unlike most cones and footers I’ve tried, the Cloud 11 did not highlight portions of the frequency spectrum. Instead, I noticed a quieter aural canvas where instruments and voices emerged from a blacker backdrop with greater focus and definition. Bass was tighter and music had a slightly more dynamic snap to it. The upper midrange and highs were also sweeter, with less sibilance and glare.
