I recently purchased a brand new Sony MDR-CD3000 headphones.

 

Where did you get the time machine???

 

LOL - I cannot believe there are still new models available all these years later.

I sold my old used pair a few years back. I have a  D7000 now. But i am useless in terms of

providing any useful info on them, as i'm a noob and don't have a good system to play them through.

No! The folks at the TH-900 thread say it has LESS BASS than the d7ks. They said that te FR itself cannot be relied on. You have to look at all the graphs they said

Yeah I was being sarcastic. I said I didn't understand what the graph was showing or why it was shown. Or how distortion relates to any of it...

I must admit saying the fact the D7000's have higher THD in the lower freqs (very low Hz and around what, 1% vs 0.5% in the sub bass area and something like 0.25% in the mid bass area) gives them a "fatter" sounding bass, doesn't make sense to me. THD introduces a grainy sound, not 'fatness' unless you are talking extreme levels of THD like a amplifier output stage being pushed way into clipping. I am not convinced a 0.5% difference in THD at 20-40Hz would even be audible. I think there must be something else that explains the difference in bass perception between the 900's and D7000's.

 

Have a look too the D7000's have less harmonic distortion through the midrange than the 900's, to me this would be more 'audible' than the D7000's higher THD in the sub bass region.

From my memory is sound leak in, none leak out
post #6353 of 7185

They isolate 'ok' not great, in either direction. I share my home office with my fiancee and with some music she can clearly it (metal/rock), others she cannot (acoustic/vocal).

 

I do have trouble hearing normal speaking voice in the same room or raised voice from another room when listening though, so perhaps they leak more than they isolate? They're much better in both respects though than my old HD650's, they leaked so bad they annoyed someone in the same room and even annoyed someone in the next room while they were trying to get to sleep, plus you could hear anything going on near you.

Sorry dude, I also notice no leak out, but lots of leak in.

 

There is an acoustic ring, which is why they're pretty much semi-open rather than closed headphones.
