-should work, but I haven't used the e17... -the dt880 is one of the nicer full size values IMO. SS is larger than average, subbass extension is also better than the usual offering for its price. Do note that like most other full sized dynamics, the bass eventually rolls off and/or distorts heavily before 20hz. I'd put that point around 30hz for the dt880, after which it becomes increasingly unresponsive to eq. Actually has good qc, unlike beyer's new models. -The dt1350...
Actually, the hd 25 does do subbass. It is more midbassy though. The amperior should be at the apple store, as that is where it was originally meant to be exclusive to. The Hd 25 is peaky, kinda harsh, the amperior tones the bass down a bit, and eliminates most of the harshness, but for about double the price. The dt1350 is afflicted with beyer's lack of qc on their teslas. Pairs can sound radically different from the other. Some are nice, some are funky, some are just...
Because on head-fi, the word neutral is like the bat-signal for objectivists. Has anyone else heard the paradox and the he-500?
Se535: not overrated imo, mostly because head-fi dropped that baby ages ago. Somewhat mid-focused and lush, extended linear bass, treble is kinda peaky and notably lacking extension. Not terribly detailed. Stage is okay overall, kinda average really. Um3x: warm, emphasized bass and midrange, treble is shelved as per westone's stage monitor approach. Don't look for air here. Small upfront stage, excellent separation of instruments. W4r: a more neutral iem, slight emphasis...
I don't know the dt660. The hd280 seemed like a well balanced can overall. Need some extension, but it sounded alright.The k550 has just enough bass if you get a seal. Of course, i' ve heard complaints from people with smaller heads. The k550 has that k701 upper mid-low treble emphasis, only more so. Throwing a wrench into this is that i've heard two different pairs, that sounded quite different. One pair was tipped up there and slightly grating, the other hurt my ears...
Awhile back , I saw about 4 people in suits together, each wearing a b&w p5. Very odd. More recently, a clear se 535 on the subway, and a pair of jh ciems. Got plenty of stinkeye for my trouble.
Go by ear. Different FR plots will be produced as:-they will use use different couplers, with their own deviations from neutrality.-compensation curves for the human ear will be different, as what the tester sees is best- headphones themselves can can their percieved response altered by shifting them around. Your position may not reflect their position, and the quality of pad seal- Finally, cans themselves have product variations. Certain companies have tighter qc than...
They didn't let that happen for me. Had to cough up the money (and return it) to listen.On a related note, audeze's website lists woo audio as a dealer in elmhurst, queens.
The sennheiser veil I think is an unfortunate meme that got started with the popularity of the k701 some time ago. Needless to say, I don't find it very veiled. Since you do however, the 120 and 250 cuts work out, provided that the graphic eq isn't a piece of trash. Pull up the 4k band for a bit of presence, which would most directly address your veil concern. The 31hz band isn't something you should bother with. Set it back to the usual state. The drivers in the 5xx/6xx...
The d7100: the head-fier's beats' beats.
