iam from india and live in delhi. i always loved music but never really had the money or the knowledge during college days. hence recently, i bought the incredible Audio technica M50s and use them without amps. that in itself has been good fun. my source is an old Sony NW 616. its got great sound and 4 gb capacity. i am considering an upgrade to a Cowon Flac player along with the Fiio e7 amp/dac.
along with this, iam considering the AKG 701 or the DT...
hi there. great stuff from Japan. thanks for sharing your pictures and opinions. makes me wanna really visit one of these shows and try out all that tech for my self.
thanks again and hope to see more from you.
lol. its no magic. first of all, its pretty cool to look at and give you a cool gadget guru type of look. on top of that the comfort level is pretty great. one can wear this thing for 4-5 hours at a stretch.
then there is ofcourse the sound. on average several times better than most 'normal' phones.
lastly, its all bout the music! this one gal in the train asked me what i was listening to. the answer was 'maor levi'... she had no idea. but once she had the...
hi folks. a lil report on what ive been upto.
been listening to a lot of music recently. took it to work as well... everyone asked what is it and audio technica? whats that? :P
and chicks dig this thing.
as far as sound goes., the ear pads get run in accordingto your ears. now when i wear these for longer durations. my ears dont get as sweaty....
the bass is slighty more controlled now. and the mids have become slightly more recessed. hope this...
great! another anjunabeats lover! its rare to find dream trance lovers.... i listen to almost anything that sounds technically balanced and good. other include- iron maiden, megadeth, maor levi, prodigy, stratovarius. and yes, the song paradise lost sounds incredible through the M50s
thanks folks. its great to be among such pro audiophiles. yes, the M50s came 1 week post joining Head-fi,
and after this financial hit, my in-built radar has picked up a lil box called ibasso. :P sorry about my wallet indeed.
have finished over 30 hours of burn in. so i decided to listen and try out. i played Anjunabeats 6. the genre is called dream trance/morning trance. the M50 portrays bass clearly but looks like bass decays still has to speed up a little. other than that, the highs are very slightly on the the brighter side. but sound stage is huge and this unit is specifically great when it comes to trance or techno.
other than that, the hissing sound present in the mids has...
just read the post. awesome stuff. i recently bought the M50s, conducting burn in currently and the the changes i am noting down are interesting.
btw, just wanted to ask. have you ever heard the Technics DJ 1210 dj headphones? i tried em out few days back. the build quality is prolly the best i have ever seen on any headphone.
would like to hear your thoughts, and i might pick a pair up! :P
thanks.... and cheers.
finally, after a loooong research stint that got me to join Head-fi, i bit the bullet and went in for my first high quality headphone. the M50s! i livbe in india and prices here are stupid high. i bought one for approx USD170....
i went in for the coiled one. i picked it up from a distributer and only had my Samsung mobile to try em out with. needless to say, they sounded nothing better than the Bose In ear i was hearing. the bass was pretty boomy and the mids had...
