Great sounding on-ear headphones

Posted

Pros: Warm, rich, detailed overall; solid articulate bass, very comfortable, nicely made

Cons: Excessive ibilance with stock cables

This is an UPDATE of my original review.  Listening further, experimenting, taking suggestions from the comments.   My original rating was 3.5, because these headphones do - as noted - display clearly audible sibilance wherever it can possibly occur.     Some comments suggested using aftermarket cables, and I did so. The sibilance disappeared.   Most recently, I've been using these with a plain cable offered by V-Moda. Straight, light, and reasonably priced.  (I tried 5 different cables in all.)   While IMO thinksound has to bear responsibility for bundling a cable with these headphones that degrades their quality, the fact is...

Brilliant Introduction to Audiophile Music

Posted

Pros: Sounds amazing through any source. Flexible with any music. Astonishing clarity.

Cons: Headband has too little padding and the plastic used is cheap feeling. Slight sibilance.

This is my first audiophile grade headphone and I truly believe that this is a brilliant introduction to how awesome music can sound!   I live is South Africa, a country that is renowned for ripping off it's consumers. With the dwindling value of our Rand, I had resigned myself to asking a friend to bring a pair of headphones back from USA or Europe. Local prices of headphones and any audio equipment are exorbitant.    With a heavy heart and a patient wallet, I waited for word from friend until one day a local site had them on an incredible special for one day. I bought these off of an extremely good site called onedayonly.co.za for a price of R1899 ~ $160....

Thinksound On1: Excellent Eco-Friendly Headphones On-The-Go

Posted

Pros: Excellent Neurtral & Airy Sonic Presentation, Eco-Friendly, Portable

Cons: Rough Plastic Edges

Me: I am a 21 year old student living in a small town in India. I would like to call myself a music enthusiast, rather than an audiophile. I was inspired by music since childhood, and as the time passed, the passion of music grew in me, and that subsequently led me to join Head-Fi. Eventually, I found the pleasure of listening to music mainly by the HD600 and recently, by the seductive LCD2 headphones, and realized the true components of recorded music. I usually like to listen to Indian Classical Music along with Bollywood songs. My main listening genres include classical, vocal, instrumental, jazz and sometimes pop.   Intro:  Thinksound is a new US brand...

Aesthetically and Sonically Pleasing

Posted

Pros: sound quality, aesthetics, detachable cable, sustainable philosophy, comfort, headband durability

Cons: stock (braided and therefore textured) cables can be noisy if rubbed against fabric (ex. shirt collar), can be uncomfortable when worn with glasses

These headphones sound very precise and balanced. You will hear your music as it was recorded, mixed, and mastered which is the approach I prefer to trying to find headphones that try to EQ things for you. I listen mostly to metal, jazz, synthpop, and instrumental music and the On1s have impressed me in everything I've tried. They can get very loud when powered from a PC and sound great straight from my Nexus 5. The wood used to make the cups is very beautiful and pleasant to the touch. They change color slightly depending on viewing angle and lighting which is cool; much more classy than red and white plastic. The headband is comfortable and quite durable; you can find a youtube video of...

Thinksound On1 - Portable Woody Perfection

Posted

Pros: Beautiful wood finish, warm detailed sound, excellent soundstage size

Cons: On ear headphones are never comfortable for longer sessions, some of the plastic finishes don't look great

Thinksound is a company that’s focussed on sustainable and environmentally conscious headphones. In fact, they even offer a recycling program for headphones with a bonus if you recycle their headphones, but I doubt you’ll be doing that any time soon with the On1s – you’ll be hanging on to these puppies with everything you’ve got!   Overview   Thinksound’s On1 headphone is a foldable, portable, closed, on-ear design that retails for roughly $350 (AUD).   Frequency response:  5 – 22,000 Hz Impedance:  50 ohms Drivers:  40mm dynamic Cables:  4.5 feet (2 equal length cable options with / without phone mic and remote)   At $350, the On1s...
