I imagine the FA-011 would be about as portable as your K601 or K701.



Unless Beyerdynamic really likes my DTX 300 p review (which I am not sure they will), I see that as a very slim possibility.

Tyll seems to like the DT1350 very much as well. Does someone want to step up to the plate and send Joker a pair for review? ph34r.gif

I received my HT-21 last week. Still haven't gotten around to posting impressions but they were a fantastic deal at $24. I never expected the price to stay at $40, Newegg currently is selling them for $30 + 1.99 shipping.

My HT-21 should be arriving today.  It's my very first venture with Meelectronics of any kind.  A whole new sound sig!  Woooohooo!

Sigh... it would be great if the DT1350 was reviewed by |joker|..

 

Also, are there any good reviews out there of Sennheiser HD280's? It would be great if |joker| added them onto here ^^.

I've tried the HD280 but didn't end up buying it. I thought it sounded dark compared to the MDR-V6 and V900HD and was a bit uncomfortable. Either way I'm sure a Senn that old has been reviewed to death while I've got new releases to cover.

post #1956 of 4545

The HD280 is an old workhorse, much like the V6. A bit darker in sound, harder clamp, closed soundstage, but the best isolation I've ever heard (or rather, not heard) in a full sized headphone.

post #1957 of 4545

I don't think you'll find a lot of good reviews for the HD280.  The best thing about them is they isolate as well as any full sized headphone.  They're fragile though and have a 6 foot long coiled cord which makes them pretty useless for portable.  They were the first headphone I bought after coming to head-fi because I was looking for isolation during my subway commute.   The cord hung down to my shin and because it's coiled, it's awkward to stuff in a pocket or tie it up.

Fragile? The pairs I've used have been reasonably durable.

post #1959 of 4545

Mine still work fine, but all of the plastic on the headband has slowly broken off.  The headband is now bare metal.  These are about 5 years old now and there were more that a few complaints about it back then.  They may have changed the headband design/materials to fix the problem.

Added the Beyerdynamic DTX 300 p and Koss KSC35

post #1961 of 4545

nice! the KCS35 looks classy.

 

are the portapro attached to the headband by a ball and clip? (dunno the name for that mechanism) but if they are, they could exchange headband/clip ons with the ksc75, am I correct?

 

guess I'll find out soon, I won an used portapro at ebay (15$!!) my hair is ready to be scalped!

post #1962 of 4545

I believe the Portapro and KSC35 have the same drivers.

Portapro and KSC35 driver housings are interchangeable - those of the PortaPros are just blue instead of black. The KSC75 doesn't work as well with the PP headband as the driver doesn't sit flush with the temple pads. However, it's been a while since I tried it and my KSC75s had a headband back then anyway. I know some people used the Yuin G1A/G2A drivers with PortaPro headband which seems like a solid combination.

Quarter mod the pads.. Superglue the cut outs to the sliders. You will never lose a hair off of your head again.
