I don't have long term impressions yet, but I am just listening to my new hd 25-1's and the bass hits really nicely on this dubstep I'm jamming to right now. I've read from others that yes, they are great for fast type music

I think they are most excellent for these genres. I have only tried the 250 ohm version of the Beyer DT770 and wasn't a huge fan. A little harsh and not any more controlled than the HD25 down low. Definitely preferred the 880/600.

Added Marshall Major & Urbanears Plattan

Hey ljokerl I just read your review on the Marshall Major I honestly thought it would have gotten a much lower score.  This guy reckons they are just about ok for listening to speech but definitely not recommended for listening to music, strange eh!  I haven't heard them myself but it's a pretty damning review don't ya think, best avoided I'm guessing wink_face.gif   I haven't heard them myself but I

Sorry to finish that sentence, I haven't heard them myself but after this review I don't intend doing so either, not to mention they look hideous lol

post #2334 of 4545

If the Majors sound anything like the Minors, I would have to agree with Inner-Fidelity's take on them.  They would be brighter in the mid-highs, and softer on the bass and (especially the treble).  Guitars seemed to shine with them.  Bass would be exactly how Joker explained it, doesn't extend that deep, a little thump, that's as much as you'll get though.  What I won't agree with is that they are total garbage for music, they work, but only so far.  There are better choices though.  Again, this is if the Majors sound anything like the Minors.

I don't read/watch other reviews but I suppose it depends on what you're comparing them to. There are much better options for that sort of money but I've also heard much, much worse (e.g. the Urbanears). Everything has a price and the Major overshoots its 'good value' price point by a bit. It's not garbage, though.

post #2336 of 4545

Agreed on the Major. if the Major sounds like that, I dont want to listen to the urban ears.

 

I got it as a quick-on-the-go side option for the HD25 but I prefer the ES7 for it, or the V6 still like 20$ less. honestly got carried for the look and the folding mechanism. biggrin.gif. not worth the 100$ for sure, I would recommend it if it were priced at 60 or 70, I think.

 

nice write up as usual, Joker.

post #2337 of 4545

I actually agree w/ Joker's review of the Majors.  Me and Tyll exchanged a few posts about it on the Majors thread and I don't it so much that they sound bad.  They really don't sound bad.  It's whether they sound bad for the price.  For $50 I wouldn't mind saying have a go if you like the design.  They don't deserve to be categorized as bad phones IMO.  I have yet to hear the DT48 but I would guess the Majors slaughter them in the low end.  Just a guess.

Whoa there - that's not allowed these days.

 

 

~$50-60 is what I would pay for them as well, but I actually like the looks and construction. Really all of the Zounds headphones need to be knocked down a notch. Major should be at the Plattan pricepoint, Plattan should be at the Coloud Colors price point, and the Colouds should all be gathered up and recycled into Lego bricks. Waste of colorful plastic is what they are now.

Hi Joker! Nice reviews, I have spent a lot of time reading them. Will you review the AIAIAI TMA-1? I have read other head-fiers reviews but i´d like to know how well they compare to other headphones on their price range. Keep the good work!

I'm going to be sending them to him soon to review... Been preparing to move for the past month and a half, so I've been busy. I hope to remedy that soon.
