Supposedly, the 8323 is the best out of the bunch, 

I have heard the 6893 is absolute garbage with its active NC, and according to Steve Guttenburg of C-net, the 8323 tops the 8324, despite the similar price.

I've heard a lot of good things about it but I'm more interested in the 8324 for portable needs, although I'd love to hear all them. I'm sure each and every one of them are great. I'm not into the DJ style headband, makes me look like a satellite dish is sitting atop my head,I can't stand that design and I much prefer the standard type that the 8324 has.

Haven't planned on it but it could happen.

Hi, i'm between px 100-ii, hd 238 precision and px 200-ii.

 

I got a 35 euro discount coupon for a site, and for gettin getting px 100s i'd hav to pay merely 6 euros more.

The 238 is 46 and the px 200 ii r like 66 euro.

 

Should i get the px 100s ii or pay a bit more n get the hd 238. I hav the hd 220 adidas n tried the 228 n quality is quite poor + they feel weak and cheap, and i hav to constantly put the pads in place while listening cos they're not tight.

 

Other option wud be to pay like 30 euro n getting the px 200, but not sure if the price difference is worth the upgrade.

I would just get the PX100-II. I like it more than the HD238 personally and it fits tighter on the head than the HD228/HD238. The PX200 is only worth the upgrade if you need isolation and/or like a more balanced/analytical sound signature.

Thanks m8. I'll mainly use them in home, so no real need for isolation.

Hi Joker, still curious.

Is the Q40 still my best bass head-removable cable option at an increased budget of $100-160?

Does the Q40, despite the deep bass still have pronounced treble and (especially) vocals?

The XB500/700's and the Crossfade LP just wasn't what I was looking for. It sounded undynamic, unclear, and it felt like I was taking a mud bath, although the bass was excellent. I was interested in the AKG K181 DJ, but the reviews don't seem to positive...

I only managed to listen to the Q40 for 2 minutes max, and at first I felt there wasn't enough bass, but I realized I wasn't being reasonable. 

 

Have you ever listened to the Audio Technica ATH-Pro700 MK2 ?  It seem to be respected and has a removable cable... Just wondering if you ever listened to it..

I am not familiar with any other removable-cable bass-heavy sets in addition to the ones already listed. The Q40 is a studio monitor and isn't really tuned to sound fun despite the excellent bass depth. It does have the clarity of a studio monitor, though, and good presence throughout. It doesn't have as much mid-bass impact as a Crossfade LP or Sony XB500/700 but doesn't sacrifice as much resolution, either.

 

I've never heard any of the PRO700 variations.

Never heard it myself but I'm sure there are some discussion threads.

nice thread!

i'm torn between the philips o'neill the stretch and the sony xb500, since there's so many conflicting opinions about these particular ones online.

I can get either of these for 35 bucks through a friend, but I was wondering, which one of these sound better when there's no amp?

post #2936 of 4545

Currently hesitated between ah-a100 and es10 -.-

post #2937 of 4545

^ es10

Both sound fine without an amp - they are consumer-oriented portables, after all. You just have to decide if you'd rather have something more balanced (the Philips) or more bass-heavy (the XB500). Both are well-built and comfortable though the O'Neill isolates better. Both can look slightly ridiculous when worn, the XB500 with its oversize pads and the O'Neill with its dual 'floating' headband.

Monoprice 8323 is said to sound like $70-$80 headphones.

I guess I could try them out, I do need a closed back set anyway.
