I'm pretty sure the 518le sounds a little different due to cosmetic changes in the pads and over the drivers. I honestly love the 518's sound signatue, it could be a little cleaner though and more controlled bass. I think it was amazing though for the money. How is the k81 soundstage?

Awesome review :)

 

 

I'm very interested in the Monoprice Foldable NC Headphone.

 

Its only $25 bucks, and some short reviews on the product page say its comparable to $100 sets.

 

Here's some specs:

 

Driver unit: 40mm cobalt magnet
Impedance: 16 Ohm
Sensitivity: 118 dB +/- 3 dB
Frequency response: 20 - 20K Hz
Total length: 4ft
Up to 85% reduction of ambient noise.
 
Im tempted to buy them seeing as theyre a well known company, just not well known in the headphone business. Would much appreciate a trustable review from you.
 
I am in no way affilated with the company, just a very happy frequent customer.

85% reduction of ambient noise... that's humorous.

 

I'm sure these are OEM phones monoprice picked up somewhere - wouldn't be surprised to see them costing more elsewhere under a different brand. Unfortunately no plans to add more to my review queue at the moment - busy enough as it is.

Because with conventional testing methods that's a very high figure - the original Bose QC, which has the best ANC of anything I've heard by a long shot, can only just nudge figures like that. That said, "percent noise reduction" is an easy quantity to manipulate so I'm sure the "85%" is technically true for some arbitrary initial noise level in a certain frequency range (probably near the top).

Ah, okay. Thank you for answering!

I see this thread and I cant help but wish there were considerations for NON portable full size headphones. like straight up full size: audeze lcd2, hifiman, stax, audiotechnica's w1000x and 5000, etc....
post #2578 of 4545

They can go in their own thread.

post #2579 of 4545
Yes, that is what I meant. A seperate thread for full size headphones that arent considered portable for one reason or another.
post #2580 of 4545

Why don't you start one?  Grab some of those full-sized 'phones and write a comparison strictly out of portable equipment.  =]
