Shootout: 114 Portable Headphones Reviewed (Xiaomi Mi Headphones added 04/21/2015) - Page 117

post #1741 of 4545

those sonys did better than I expected.

cant wait to have my V6 and try it out (i skip the sound part so it would be a ssurprise lol)

 

and the ZX700 seems to be quite a good deal for that price. too bad it doesnt fold

 

Thank you for, yet, more hi-class reviews Joker!

No love for Sonys? biggrin.gif

 

I like the sound of the V6, more bassy and less bright than my HD25, but still, i could easily enjoy it in a long trip. comfortable enough for my big ears and tough enough to carry around.

 

And you were right about the cable .. is like 1 meter straight and 1 meter coiled ... its cumbersome. so much that i consider to replace the cable or just cut it.

 

Overall quite a pleasant surprise for me, didnt expect much fun from a headphones tagged as "studio monitor".

That makes two of us. This is the second sub-$100 monitor I've run into that I'd more readily call 'fun' than 'natural' (first being the Numark PHX).

Nice zx700 review.

 

A sony headphone that I can maybe convince myself into buying, but at least I will have less trouble converting my friends into audiophiles!

 

Thanks for the reviews beerchug.gif

I want a more portable one then the sony zx700 it's gonna be a zx100 or zx300 but the zx100 is almost twice the price then the zx300...?! do you think they are good too cause the zx700 are outstanding according to you and i am a sony fan cause bought sennheiser twice and returned them directly not my sound......

I don't think the performance level of the ZX100/ZX300 can be extrapolated from how well the ZX700 performs. There is absolutely nothing shared between the headphones except for the name so there's no way to know how the ZX100/ZX300 will compete in their respective price brackets without trying them.

I was hoping you already had an excel of everything. I'm not sure I understand your suggestion though. Cheers.

I could post the word .doc that I use to keep everything straight but then you would only have sorting but not weighting options. If you just want the numbers to transfer to excel yourself I could do that with the next update.

@Joker http://www.nextdaypc.com/main/products/details.aspx?PID=A780255&rsmainid=ND0130014 biggrin.gif I hope this site's legit. There are 144 ratings though. The ZX700 sells for $87 there and the ZX500 sells for $45. Maybe Adorama or B&H would price match?

You know there's a ZX500 right? It probably won't be as good as the ZX700, but hopefully sounds similar.

I'm assuming the new zx700's are a lot bigger and cover more of the ears than the ms400?

I do but its messy and includes a dozen headphones not yet added to the thread. I have a recent table in .mht format, though. The attach button doesn't work so I just uploaded it to mediafire. MS Word will open that file and allow for sorting, etc, or the data could be copy/pasted into excel.

I saw the site but didn't think much of it since nothing is in stock. Good prices though.

Yep, about 50% bigger by area.

Hey Joker, I was wandering when the review for the AKG Q460 would be posted.

 

I'm considering buying one but just waiting for your review. :P

Well, since I started the new additions with "Sony" I suppose I'll just go in reverse alphabetical order until I get to them tongue.gif

Wow, the Sony MDR-V6's sound like the most politically-correct headphones ever made.
