So on the KDP110 you can select some presets for the style of Headphones your using... Open, closed, semi-open, etc... Has anyone tried this? Does it make much of a difference?

Also, I thought I read that you could adjust the action to be softer or firmer? Is that a mechanical adjustment to the actual keybed or a change in the digital sound produced by the same action?

Thanks

It's not a mechanical adjustment.

Right, I'm not aware of any digital instrument that physically changes the weighting of the keyboard action.

Instead, software is used to adjust the responsiveness of the sound engine to changes in velocity, which can give the impression of a lighter or heavier keyboard action.

Kind regards,
