 Usually when the Q701 sounds like it has really harsh or aggressive treble it's due to an amp it doesn't seem to like. For example, i'm not a fan of the Magni or O2 with the Q701. It's not that the Q701 requires a warm amp at all, but is rather picky.When it has a weaker amp it does sound much thinner and more sparkly/fatiguing. Even the harshest music should never sound painful on the right amp Iwith the Q701 IMO. I actually have the E17 as a backup amp for my bedroom...
Mutiny on the Bounty - 10/10 (1962 version with Marlon Brando & Trevor Howard)   I really liked the version from the 80s with Mel Gibson and this one is actually much better. This one felt more like reading a good book and is longer and much more in depth. Probably more accurate too. This one is 3 hours long and goes by fast.   I liked Trevor Howard in "Von Ryan's Express" and was glad he was in this one. I need to find other movies with him.    I also  need to go...

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - 4/10   Possibly the worst i've seen in a long time. Just painful to watch and not funny at all to me. I usually like most John Hughes movies too.   BTW it's not a movie but i'm loving the boxed set of the old tv show called "The Honeymooners" with Jacki Gleason and Art Carney. I dont' like it as much as the Jack Benny Program, but close! I got it on sale at Wal-Mart for $10 and it has all 39 episodes.   Not a fan of current TV shows, but I...
Fury - 8/10   Extremely realistic, but a bit heavy handed and they constantly wanted to drill into your brain that war is hell. Too much and it just wasn't convincing. Somehow the realism died at one point and it turned into some John Wayne Gung-Ho nonsense.   None of the characters were likable at all to me. It kind of sucks the life out of the movie. There was a good reason for all this and I totally understand why. The movie is kind of not an enjoyable movie and...
 I've had those too once. The hard part is finding them at a good price without paying too much on shipping.The HD-668B's I had were more V-shaped and focused less on the mid-range. I bet the DJ100 has flatter and more extended low bass though. The HD-668B seemed to have more treble and be a little thinner/tinny sounding. It all depends on preference though. HD-668B is pretty good though if you like it's signature. It's one headphone that didn't match my preferences but I...
Are the K400 EP pads the ones with the brown rings on the back? I get all confused about all the versions of the actual headphone.   One pair I have has a driver that looks exactly like a K500 driver. This came with non-brown ring pads that are quite a bit deeper than those of the brown ones. I think this one is an LP. I might have confused myself and will edit this later if so.   My 2nd pair came with those brown pads and I think it's an EP. It looks like a regular...
 I looked at the picture on that link above and to me they just look so much bigger than the DJ100. This is a very good thing IMO. Maybe those people just have tiny heads.It also seems like maybe the cups are much deeper. This could also have some sort of effect on the sound (an improvement). I guess we'll never know for sure until someone inspects them. The pads have a white fabric over them. Maybe they came up with some ideas to improve it over the DJ200/100. I sure hope...
Anyone have these on order? They just came out and i'm pretty excited to get a pair of them when I actually have money! They also have an aux input. If they didn't I'd have skipped them.   It looks similar to my favorite DJ100/200, but a bit bigger (for the bluetooth stuff) and best of all, it has memory foam pads!! If they're even bigger than the DJ200, then maybe the sound will be improved a little.   I actually like the idea of having a bluetooth headphone around....
Nice! More overpriced fashion headphones from Sennheiser. Let me guess, they will be priced at $349.99 partly because they "look cool" and the marketing gurus think you'll be willing to pay that.
