Hi Rice!

For me, best EARPHONES are MX400/500!

As for CANALPHONES, I'd like to try ER4B/S someday.

the eldest is the best

mdr-e252 was sold in 1983 and mdr-e282 in 1985. They sound like excellent hifi headphones.

Hey Rice, how do the 282 compare with the 484 or 888?

282/252 sound like hifi headphones, but 484/888 do not.
282 sounds like senn headphone.
252 sounds like akg.

282>?=252 > 484 >> 888

282's wire is better than 252's.

Wow you gotta be serious... 282 > 484 > 888...

Hey Rice, do you have experiences with the Aiwa HP-D9 and HP-D8? I have both and I think they both sound much better than the 888... the Aiwas do have this "hi-fi sounding" you're referring to I think, the soundstage is super wide and you can hear a lot (and I mean A LOT) of detail... yet they're not bass heavy like the Sony 472 at all, but not like the really weak bass of the 888 either... just this weird punchy feeling but not exaggerated...

I have a pair of 484 shipping to me right now... so I can't give judgement on it yet... but I do find the 472's bass overkill...

Also, there's these Aiwa HP-V99 and HP-V88 too, heard of those?

hehe sorry for the long questions...

472 is a kind of cheap earphone.
I do not have HP-V99 and V88, but I will.

D9 sound like old style sony earphones such as mdr-e252 but not so good. D9 is better than 888, which sound too fake, like sugar.

Okay last question, how would you compare the D9 to the 484?

hehe thanks so much!
