The first review about the Somic MH489 ever on the net !

Posted

Pros: Balanced sound, firm bassrespons, clear mids & highs, soundsig like my previous DT770 pro 80, loud with mobile devices.

Cons: Inner padding presses against my ears, stiff cord with dual entry, half open which leaks a lot of sound.

So I bought myself the Somic MH489 because I stumbled upon it on this site... I liked the idea of the Sony XB500 but don 't like the Sony sound, so I took a dive with this one. You mainly find this one on Ali express for prices between $70 and $200 (no joke !) but I found one for $57 shipped to Belgium. What the heck, I just did it.   It arrived after close to one month and it was packed in plastic (every package I get from China is packed in plastic), took the plastic off and the box was covered with cardboard. But the box that held the Somic looked like it had travelled have across the world and it did ! But anyway, it's all about the content, is it not ?  ...

Pros: Good sound, you can easy spread and slide them, they look awesome! , really loud, not really expensive

Cons: after serveral hours your ears hurt, people around you can hear what are you listening to, they are sometimes slicing

Sometimes Somics were slicing to 3 on right side and e.g. to 2 on left side.    Sorry for bad english, I am learning it :) I hope...

China at it's best.

Pros: Sounds good, is comfortable and cheap

Cons: The cable is quite stiff, I would like a bit punchier bass.

I found these randomly looking at a local electronics webshop, I remember reading good reviews about Somic before and for the cheap price I thought I'd just get them for fun.   After listening to them for quite some time, I still stand a bit confused. At first when I put then on I usually find them to sound dull, after listening a while sound pretty natural but with a raised lower-mid. This might be because my goto headphones at DT990 600ohm that have a pretty "fun" characteristic. Overall I'm quite pleased with the sound, but I'm no expert in the field.   The build quality feels cheap, they are very plastic, the cord is stiff and they look weird (tho that is just my...
