I've owned two V6's and never had a clicking issue.

Do you guys notice a clicking sound coming from the hinges?

 

I do, and I just bought them.

 

I tried to stick a piece of folded paper to stop the parts that go aroun your ear from moving and it stops the sound, but I can't fold it this way.

 

I'm gonna return it, but my question is...should I buy V6's again or should I buy something else ( I love these except for this issue)


not while wearing them, they do make a "click" when you fold the cups but there is no way the cups could fold while on your head. sure it isnt fake?

 

V6 has the perfect built IMO.

I'm pretty sure it's not fake, I bought it on Amazon so it' probably just defective

 

And I say it's not fake because judging by the pictures on that other V6 thread they look quite...real

post #2029 of 4545

then consider this an opportunity to try if you like the sound, if you do why not getting the same.

 

I like the V6 a lot, and if i were to chose 1 portable of >80$ I'd be that one.

post #2030 of 4545

I'm gonna get the same.

I was just afrai that sound might be a recurring problem

Great review of the 668B , Joker!

 

Did you try removing the "acoustic dampener" stickers?

 

 

BTW, When can we expect your review of the Q460 ?

 

Thanks!

Same, though I guess James and I have experience with the same pair of V6s so my opinion doesn't count.

Nope, didn't remove any stickers. Wasn't my 668B to mess with. Q460 is on the backburner as I have four interesting loan sets right now. Five if I can fix the hinge on my SHN9500.

The fact that I actually own a Q460 makes snuffkin's request far more realistic.

Nice update to your already epic review thread, Joker

 

Head-fi community ows you

 

Please give this man ES-10 and/or ESW10jpn to review (DT1350 also) 

post #2037 of 4545

I picked up the Sony XB700 last week.  When I first got them I was actually shocked at how big the pads are!!  Wow.  Those are 2 pillows sitting nicely on your head.  I fully expected to be blown out by some massive bass.....to my surprise this wasn't really the case.  Not to say they do not deliver some big bass, it just wasn't as massive as I expected.  In fact, I was overwhelmingly happy at the sound.  They are far more balanced than I thought they'd be.  I think Sony has done an excellent job delivering the bass without stepping on the mids at all.  The are good....not overly crisp, but nice.  You can turn the volume down too.  The first thing I did was put the volume on my walkman from 10 down to 8.  This was a 79 dollars well spent for sure.  Very pleased.  Thinking about getting the ZX700....still up in the air.  Not sure to get those or maybe get the J3.  I know...totally different things there.

could i add hd 25 pads to a q460 for better isolation? if so do you think 140 for a ms 400 is worth it over a 110 for a q460 ?

Thanks, though to be fair I still owe the head-fi community a UM Miracle review.

I agree - the XB700 is not all that unbalanced and a good value overall. There are several headphones I found overly (maybe even nauseatingly) bassy and the XB700 isn't one of them. The ZX700 is a different beast, of course, but still good. Not any more portable, though.

HD25 pads are too large for the Q460s. MS400 and Q460 sound pretty different. I would pay the extra $30 for the isolation and fit of the Phiatons but I prefer the more balanced signature of the AKGs.

really? lol ive heard in two different reviews with exact same wording for both, mids that are forward and almost have a little bass bleed in and the treble is slighty soft and the bass is a lot

so the q460s are more hd 25 sound signature and ms 400 are more m50 sound signature, sorry that is the best analogy that i can relate to. Also what are good pads for the q460 for better noise isolation? I want good noise isolation, decent comfort, good sound quality somewhat bassy, stylish and pretty damn portable
