t50p or dt1350 would be great!

I think he means the DTX 300 p since it's in his profile. We should ask someone to loan an Edition 8 for audition. With the Miracle in the other thread, I feel the scores start to be way too out of sync.

I don't know if the HP-100 has been released in retail stores - I'd check the press releases on dB Logic's site or shoot them an email. The meter is something I wouldn't mind having around myself.

Hi sir! Great post. Big help to everyone. :) I got a question though. I am just starting this hobby and planning to buy a portable headphone. My initial choices was the m50, ES7, WS70/50, and the HD25-1. I crossed out the Audio Technicas after auditioning them from other audiophiles. I crossed out the m50, although it had a nice bass, it was too big for my daily commute plus I did not like the coiled cables(the one with straight cables was too long), and the ES7, although it sounds great, i found it hot after just a few minutes and the fit was not great (AFAIK, the metal parts were already adjusted by the owner). I had not auditioned the WS70/50 but there's a review here that it sounds bad(70) and no info on the 50(care to review both of them? :D). So I had my eyes on the HD25-1. However, due to unexpected expenses, I was forced to give up half of my funds. I was thinking of buying the zx700. I use a 4th gen iPod Touch and listen mostly to AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Incubus, and a little of classical, pop, and RNB here and there. Will it be a good choice for it? Are there other ones you recommend? It's kinda hard to choose here in the Philippines as choices are limited and usually overpriced. Online is the only way to go. Thank you sir and more power! :)

The ZX700 is very large - bigger even than the ATH-M50 (though the cord is far more manageable). Don't know what pricing is like or if they're even available but the Phiaton MS300 or AKG Q460 may be worth looking at.

the worst part was mount the jack, i had to remove a small part of plastic because the jack connector wont reach the outerside to screw on, i peeled a bit of the aluminium cup but thanks to sharpie its hard to nitice. Im quite happy with the results and its sure more portable now biggrin.gif


Brilliant, I've been thinking about a similar solution for some time. I don't think I saw this mod on V6 before… Any chance you have pics from the operation?

@ joker Thanks sir! Anything else sir from the around $100 to $120? I am probably getting the headphones from amazon through one of my friends in the US. I prefer it closed BTW. Thanks again. :D

no i dont, but it was fairly simple. even for a guy with not skills like me.

the hardest part was that the jack i chose had a very short extension and i had to sanpaper the plastic part of the cup.

 

good luck.

Thanks :) I won't be rushing into it, the phones are the missus' I just bought her those. She's not convinced about me messing with them just now :)

Hmm...

I may just have to go buy a pair of ZX700... Running at only 20% of the cost of the Z1000s I got yesterday, would be interesting to hear how the sound compared to their bigger brothers...

This is a dangerous game we play here... To my ears the Z1000 makes the Senn HD25 sound grainy, with bloated bass, harsh treble, and non existent mids... And, this from someone who has worshipped the HD25s - until yesterday anyway lol...

The P5 is laughably bad in comparison, and the T50p... Not on the same page even...

Go on ljokerl... You know you want to demo the Sony flagships!! wink.gif

I think I admitted as much in the conclusion of the ZX700 review tongue.gif
