Headphone Sightings 2 - Page 573

post #8581 of 11307

HTC Beats, Beats by Dre Tour, Apple Earpods, black 2 dollar Sony earbuds. Might have seen what looks like an ATH-ES55, and ATH-FC707.

Not that bad IMO. Most sightings of recognizable headphones I had in a week .

I usually only see people with Beats Solo's, Studio's, skullcandys and the occasional sennheisers. However there was one time I saw someone with a Audio Technica ANC9 I think, the ANC7 looks similar, I was too far to fully determine what it was.

Spider-Man's rocking some V-MODA's (can't quite tell which model) @0:07!

saw quite possibly the hottest girl ive ever seen in my life on the way to the hospital.... she had a pair of grado 325is around her neck with what im sure was a pa2v2 amp but couldnt tell the DAP... i think it was ipod video 5th gen.

After some excessive pause/play action, I have determined that they are the LP1, because they are white and don't have the hinges like the M100.

Awhile ago, on the UW Madison campus i spotted a guy walking around with HD598s, but I didn't have time to get out of my car.

You should still listen before you buy, especially when dropping that kind of money. There's a store in montreal called "Audioshop" that has both the sr007mki and sr007mk2 with the bundled amplifier from stax. If you really wanted they could special order the sr009 but do not have one to audition. It would be a good idea to try it before you buy since quality in the higher echelons is a lot more subjective (like personally I don't like the grado sound for the most part).

Hmm, I preferred the Sr009 quite a bit more than his 007 albeit it being less musicaly engaging; that can be fixed with the system. But tastes do differ. The transparance and pin point imaging is very impressive. I'd rank my HD800 rig in between the two stax in terms of sound texture and sound quality however with more bass texture than both the stax and transparence on par if not greater than the 007. I'd also place the HE6 with lcd3 pads and mcintosh mc225/ NAD m51 over the WES, woo transport and 007's as well overall, but the high frequencies aren't quite as extended. However the mids are greater than any other headphone I've heard besides the orpheus which I tried at Sennheiser Canada after the show. Now those are not fair and could only wish to own them :/

If the 009's were a bit cheaper I'd probably get them as end games; but for now i'm pretty darn close with what I have + I have more variety. I'll most likely wait for Senn's next flagship, hoping the headphones aren't colored

Interesting to here your thoughts on that.
Maybe I'll have to come by and try your he6 setup ;P

There was really just something off in the Sr009. Li-En felt that the soundstage depths on the sides were really closed off.
I felt that it sounded "choppy" in a sense (hard to describe).
Meanwhile, neither of us felt that way about the 007.

SR-007 MKI is amazing...I really want one bu it's so expensive, not to mention needing an electrostatic amp. frown.gif

I've seen a few ATH-M50's on campus recently. I also saw someone with a Senn Moentum.

post #8592 of 11307

sorry....Not being late for rounds > girls

post #8593 of 11307

Saw a B&W C5 yesterday and AKG K495 today. Otherwise it's been pretty much the same.

1: Stock earbuds of whatever they're using or low-end Sennheiser/Skullcandy stuff

2: Koss Porta Pro

3: Beats anything

4: The rest

In the sea of Beats, I found someone with HE-400's, which is pretty surprising as everyone here in this Highschool.
post #8595 of 11307

Every time I go to the gym I see on average 3 Beats. I always point them out to my workout buddy and he gets sooo livid :P Sometimes I see a guy with Skullcandy Aviators, which I guess is kind of unusual? I've never had the fortune of sighting an average Joe with audiophile grade cans ):
