I dont know that much about speaker design. - But I think that besides open baffle or closed an damped, manufactorers has also tried to diffuse the sound from the back of the driver with ex. "stairs" in the cup. One dream of mine for years has been to create a cup with similar thinking as used in the B&W Nautilus speaker ie. a reverse horn. Here the sound is not ampified but the contrary as it travels away from the driver.   Of course having something like the nautilus...
Hello Craigster 75!   My comment WAS meant to provoke - BUT i missed an "ONLY" in there. What I meant of course was that: "The driver is not the ONLY major contributor to the sound" You cannot maka a good headphone from a bad driver - AND you cannot make a good headphone with a bad housing!!!   Just think the amperior is a bad example because the only thing changed is the material of the housing. If the momentum used the same driver it would have different size,...
Talking about drivers being the same or different. You cannot claim the driver to be the major contributor to the way a headphone sounds. All other making minor differences. Some 200$ driver are used in very upmarket speaker producing a sound so different than cheaper speaker using same driver that you would not believe it. Not just a matter of materials, but shape, size and rigidity of the cup and the same variables with the pads and even the headband and the ergonimics...
They may not be as High End as the rest of these suggestions. But if you liked the hd650 and want the same on a higher level I would say hifiman HE-500. With a smooth sounding amp ( I use Rudistor rpx-33evo 8 with good result) it will do exactly what i read you want: Make everything sound musically involving, reward you with good recordings and never let bad ones down.   I has the same tonal balance as the hd-650 but with better detail, better feeling of beeing there...
Useless it's open back!!!!   How come the marked has been flooded with expensive open back phones the last couple of years?? Yes its easier to make good! Yes the best phone out there will always be open back! - Yes the best phone at any given price point will be open back!!   Closed back while being much more usefull, presents the designer with a lot more problems.......Well thats why we need companies to spend hours on perfecting it!!   Almost every closed...
Sorry Jan that I didn´t post my impressions here!   I believed that after the change of setup here at headfi.org reviews were supposed to be posted in the GEAR section. I was pretty tight on time so didn't get to link here. Thanks to KingStyles it came to be linked anyway!
Not bad at all - will be sure to register soon
Can´t wait!   Are we any other danes than nc8000 and me?   What is the european price going to be?
Nobody hear of anyone who has modded their iaudio 7 with succes??? Nobody???
As some of you pointed out there is a huge difference in isolation between closed back model - the same is true with open back though - the hd 800 being as if you dont wear a headphone at all - very open back others isolate at bit more.   How is the T1 in that respect being (I think) semi open? Was thinking that when my w1000 don´t isolate that much the t1 might not be that much more open? Don´t need a totally closed can, but just a little isolation
