Wow they look sleek and sexy for $400. Maybe when I'm ready to spend serious money I'll pick up a pair. Impressions above make them out to be very detailed, dynamic with excellent range, and comfortable without compromising aesthetics.
I don't own many. Gotten rid of some the last few years too. Full-Sized: 1. JVC HA-RX700 - I use these mainly at home. The long wire and large size make them unweildingly clumsy for on-the-go. They have a nice laid back signature and are quite comfortable with minimal clamp. 2. Sony MDR-XB950AP/H - I plan on using these for trips and maybe some commuting. They have some nice bass (prefer analytical) but sound veiled and recessed compared to everything else I have. Very...
I got a pair through NewEgg for $25 (refurb).  I spent a few hours listening to some of my Google Play Music collection.  Overall, they seem a bit veiled (sometimes it seemed like the mids were recessed), but I think that depends greatly on the type of music.  I found bass-heavy songs with vocals to have more recessive sounding mids and highs.  However, I don't feel the bass bleeds.  They just seem to be more forward.  Vocals are still clear and it seems to be a small...
Was riding the bus to work this morning.  Noticed this student (assumption) wearing a pair of B&W P5s.  Not my first time seeing him, but sure made me all giddy with excitement.  Then this girl sits down next to him wearing a pair of Beats Solo and I couldn't help but frown and turned away in disgust.  Most of the way to the university, I noticed him turn and look over at the girl and do a double take.  Then he slowly (exaggerated?) turns back and stares out the window a...
So my brother bought a pair of HD419's off Amazon refurb'd for the low, low price of $10.  Now after normal wear-and-tear, sound only comes out of the left ear cup.  Nothing out of the right.  I'm wearing them now and the wire doesn't seem to be at fault.  I've wiggled it and slowly inserted the plug into my computer headphone jack.    I only have a basic understanding of headphone innards and was wondering if anything knew how to fix this pair?  Could I fix it...
That's a lot of cash for a pair phones.  I hope they are worth the $5000+ people shell out...  Makes the budget stuff I have feel tiny, they don't even have as many zeros in their price tag.  :S
Every headphone has it's own sound signature and in the end, it depends on what the listener wants out of a given pair of cans, what sound he/she is looking for, whether or not they like bass/clarity/detail, etc.  Personally, I find both to be on the bass heavy side because I usually prefer analytical phones that offer clarity, some bass, and good midrange.  My first pair of UE Super.Fi 3s set the reference standard for me and subsequent test drives of various phones...
Just a note before you read the rest of my post: I have not burned in my 8323s enough yet (only about 6 hours on them).  I have read burn-in opens up the mids a bit more (impressions from other members says it's not significant).   Second, don't post a reply so quickly after your first post.  Wait a day, at least, before bumping the thread.  Some will just ignore the thread if they already see a reply so soon (assumption that it's been answered).   Now onto my...
  Woah, those look really comfy, elegant, and classy! 
    Maybe I should test drive these if I can find it at my local Best Buy.  :)
