The design of these look somewhat similar to the AKG K67. Anyone listen to both? Not that I have either, just curiosity. I would also like to add my thoughts with respect to my fellow Canadian over pricing. Its absolutely ridiculous that we have a dollar nearly on par with the US yet our Amazon expects us to pay double on nearly everything! Its a rip off. Someone once pointed out that a car built in Ontario Canada went for several thousand MORE here than it did , in the...
Just for your info, the main complaint regarding the Soundmagic hp 100/150 comfort is that the pads are too shallow and some peoples ears end up resting against the inside. I personally have zero issue but my ears are fairly average or shallow I guess. So if you have dumbo ears then they may be an issue. I do love the sound though.
Well, it seams I have gotten better at getting the fit now with the large tips. They are precariously sitting there though. I know I am now getting a seal and good bass but I know the bass could be better because all I have to do is , not even bite, just make my lower jaw meet the upper and the bass improves noticably. I guess this increases the seal or slightly limits the air volume between the driver and my ear drum inside my ear. I would give this thing damn near a...
I have been having a weird time regarding fit with these which explains the bass issues I had. I was attracted to the smaller sizes as I normally fit a med trying to put these in my ear much like the Klipsch X5 (which is similar to the X10 for those who don't know) but it was really to large to go that far yet the tip wouldn't seal. So I eventually ended up using the largest, giving up on any real insertion like the Klipsch but they feel like they are barely sitting in...
Just wanted to share an experiance. Tonight at work I listened to Tool's Aenima album and the final track called third eye was never really my favorite however for the first time I could easily and clearly make out the quiet spoken passage of the song as well as a number of sounds deep in the track which I never heard before which really impressed me as I thought anything to be heard would be through my old Klipsch X5.
Whew. I think I made comments here a bit too hastily after reading through this thread, making conclusions without really trying the various tips. I finally got a good seal(although the provided tips are thin in my opinion.) and listened to some electronic music at night without distraction and definitely say these do have great bass response. Now I am actually extremely pleased with the sound. As mentioned here, not the biggest soundstage but really good separation and...
After spending time following about with fit. I could definitely get good bass from them, frankly, I am not really pleased with the ear tips. They are quite thin. I am getting a better fit/sound using the large and get a seal but compared to the Klipsch X5 (which are probably some of the best fitting non customs out there) they still allow leakage simply due to being thin. I ordered some triple flange type from lostearbuds and hope they work. They could be fake but the...
Hmm, I'm a bit confused right now. Just bought a pair used but in "excellent" condition from a fellow Canadian and they sound good for the most part, matching many of the descriptions but the bass is noway near what I have read. It is, in my opinion quite weak or definitely below the other frequencies. I'm comparing to my past iem and headphones being the Klipsch S4,X5, Shure se110, and the fantastic Soundmagic Hp100 headphones. I know burn in will not make any dramatic...
Great review. I have had mine for awhile now. As a man of limited means, I wanted the best I could get for the money and read all the reviews when I spotted these, and while there wasn't a ton to read about what there was was very positive. So I got them and am very pleased. I especially like the bass. I'm not a basshead but I'm not one of those analytical type audiophiles who seem to be completely content with very thin sound(no offense to them just never understood it) ,...
I really think the HP100 have very good bass. they possess a rare feature that other reviewers have mentioned and that is that if the track playing is not particularly bass heavy the headphones sound like headphones without much bass however on track with bass they have such a wonderful effortless bass sound that isn't monstrous but is bottomless and strong through the spectrum. Not te fastest nor are they slow by any means nor are they the most impactfull but they are...
