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


That analogy is quite misleading. let's just say the Q460 is fairly well-balanced while the MS400 is definitely bass-heavy. For what you want it really seems like the MS400 will be a better fit.

thanks a bunch dude i really apreciate all your help :D and one mroe quicky question :D how does the ms 300 compare with the ms 400 because in one review the ms 300 had a lot less bass in the graph but not wen i look at headphone.con the graph has changed to show the ms 300 and the ms 400 to have almost the same amount of bass

post #2044 of 4545

As I said in my thread, the MS400 is easily the bassy one. Sometimes you can't take those graphs and numbers are blind value.

I'm suprised how little talk is mentioned about the Prodipe Pro 800 on this site. Also there's an almost identical offering for similar price but also offers ADDITIONAL cloth pads and have slightly different foam config inside the cup but that's about it, probably same driver. Cortex CHP-2500 http://www.amazon.com/Cortex-CHP-2500-Professional-DJ-Headphones/dp/B002K8W5QC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1306439021&sr=8-2

 

Quite nice to offer additional pads for a ~$50 headphone, no?

If you are in the US you could get the Turbine Pro Gold for that much.  What price did you see for a normal turbine?
 

 

post #2048 of 4545

You can easily get the Monster Turbine for $100 online new at Amazon. Or you can get it for $50 refurbished from the Monster Outlet. If you really like what you heard from them those are probably your best bet.

I would be very careful buying Monster products off ebay. There's also a number of Turbine alternatives in the $100 range if you can't get them for less than $180 - Beyer DTX101 iE, Nuforce NE-700X, Xears TD-III, etc.

The Prodipes have the cloth pads too. They aren't AKG/Beyer quality, more like an after thought, and they muffle the mids. They're kinda itchy too. But still, very nice. I was supposed to send my pair to Joker a month and a half ago, but the hinges snapped the day I was going to message him. They're still usable because for some reason, they're hanging by a slightly more sturdy piece of plastic, but sending them off is kind of an insult... I still have to finish the review of them.

Yep. They are good cans. Well-built, comfortable, noise-isolating. Sound quality is the weakest link but they aren't terrible - maybe a 6/10 on my scale. Here in the US they are <$40 though.
