It's a mod very easy to do... it works too with the K701.

Updating with things I've heard:

 

1. Sony MDR-V6 w EDT 231V - Still, nothing has come close to touching it.  Missing amplitude in the treble which will scare most away, (it is there, but like a bass guitar in a rock song, it acts as subtle backing) but cleanliness and accuracy throughout the rest of the range with excellent soundstage, holographic imaging, wonderful tonality, and a special tactility on good recordings pushes it far beyond everything else I've heard.  Not at all perfect, but a hell of a lot closer than the rest.  I'm hoping the TH900 will be the "perfect" version of these.

 

2. NAD RP18 - More enjoyable overall than the HD600 was, so it makes the list.

 

Honorable Mention: HD600 - Unnatural, dry tonality.  Overall better than everything that isn't on the list, but not good enough to make it on the main list.

 

 

Ended up deciding that nothing else warrants a ranking.

Personal preferences are personal lol I would disagree and swap the Senns and the AT's and  the LCD3 and the Stax... but again that's my personal opinion.

1) Sennheiser HD 449

2) Sennheiser HD 598

Reason being is that the 449s sound exactly the same as the 598s, while being over $160 cheaper. The 598s are just more comfortable to wear, that's about it.

I have doubts that an open headphone sounds anything like a closed headphone with a completely different driver and housing.

okay so it seems I'm having mood swings, because one day, I LOVE MY X10's then the next day I'm all like meh, but today, I'm flipping out at how amazing they are,except for their tiny soundstage and their uncomfortability, otherwise they are phenomenal.

1. Akg Sextetts: unfortunately these aren't getting any head time as they are being prepared for operation "Super Sexytetts"

2. Denon Hp700: Holy Fizz do these sound super awesome, now that I've given my ears a taste of Mid to Hi-fi, they seem to sound supremely natural and neutral, also the velour earpads broke in making them way more comfy

3. Klipsch X10: ER MAH GERD IMAGING IN DAT BASS, AND MIDS! the only place they lose out on is soundstage, and comfort.

4. Audio Technica ws99: very soft leather pads and great hiphop cans make these great for trips, or for showing people the light because of their surprising capabilities

5. Koss Ksc-75: really nice and surprisingly not muddy in comparison to my hd 439

6. Hd 439: oh how the great have fallen, these used to be my favourites/comfies/basshead can but the bass has become unbearable now as I'm starting to realize my true love for cold and analitical cans (the k701 and hd 800 make me wanna... let's not talk about it)

?. Beyer dt250-250: I wonder how they will sound?

you find x10 to be uncomfortable?

post #3358 of 4624

The X10 is the most comfortable IEM I've ever used... Also, I quite enjoy the soundstage on mine. Maybe its my amp?

X10 are indeed one of the most comfortable iems I've tried, along with MDR 7550. But I see how it might slip out of ear easily.
