Less racism and more deals please.
Velodyne VLeve and Vfree headphones from $13-$20 each. 93% off. They probably suck for $200, but aren't half bad for under 20 bucks. I just ordered the wired & wireless options for xmas gifts.
I just recently got a LeEco LE S3 which has a USB Type-C instead of a normal headphone jack. I tried the apple earbud clones that came with it and they sound quite good for the cost. Much better than the apple earpods out of a normal headphone jack to my ears. I have no idea why this is, it could be something as simple as higher volume. I'm interested in seeing companies adapt to this change. Soon DACs/Amps/Headphones might all come in the same package, which sort of makes...
Would you guys say that a LeEco Le S3 for $150 on the 11/2 sale is a good deal? Thinking about taking the plunge tomorrow as the Moto G4 I ordered won't work with my AT&T LTE, and therefore is being sent back to Amazon.
I am using MDR-7550's, but sometimes find myself missing that top end sparkle from armature drivers. Does anyone here own the MDR-7550 and the newer XBA-H3's? I'm wondering if I should go back to Armatures. I really love the bass of the MDR-7550's, but more resolving high sparkle on my Phonak PFE-022's. I would like to try the XBA-Z5's too, but they are a bit too rich for my blood.
Great pair of headphones in decent condition. These sound better than ATH-M50's and most closed cans under $150. Originally retailed for a lot more & have solid build quality & a long cable which is great for monitoring and DJing. They also sound good straight out of a headphone jack or with an amp. Some faint battle scars from use in the studio as seen in photos. Price includes shipping to continental US.
I miss the old school head-fi/headwize days! I totally like talking to other hobbyists. Since then I've noticed a lot of profiteers and "flippers" join the community who don't really care about the sound, but just want to make a quick buck. Sad really.
