Great comparison. lots of work put into that one, Kudos!
Any interest in the JVC S700? They can be had for around $25-$35 now. Surprised that nobody buys the S700/S900 but the RX700/900 and flats are flying off the shelves. I had the S900 and they were quite better than SR60/Portapro/PX100 and the like.
As for the S700/900s, I was under the impression that they are circumaurals. They look to be the same size as the low-end sennheiser circumaurals (HD212, etc).
If they are on-ears like the rest on this review I might pick up a pair just for comparison. Those slimz look quite tempting, too.
LOTS of work indeed here - Tip off my cap to you brotha!!
Been really enjoying the Monsters since @warrenpchi gave me a listen in LA many months ago, and was psyched to contribute to the group on those!
I also enjoy the over-ears as well!
They're also great for the iPhone - nobody's ever complained about the sound of my voice using the on-ears with my phone!
Can't say that with other cans!
They're not as full-bodied at the DNA Pros (and I also agree, there's a lack of overall gestalt in the low-end, but music is free and easy to listen to on these,
for long periods of time - making them winners for me!
I used them to KEEP ME CALM here in the doctors office here, while my wifey was goin through hell.
I also find the mids and highs in the DNA Pros to be strikingly coherent and breathy. I need air in my music, as in life right?
I find a ton of cans in this bracket may hit me with decent midrange punch, or bass romp, extended highs, but they lack air
and dimensionality. NOT the DNA Pros! They give me a sweet sense of depth and width, as well as timbre that beats out some
far more expensive cans!
and with this Nordost Heimdall iKable I have (3.5mm - 3.5mm) I know, its OVERKILL, but MAN - they sound fantastic w/ my AK120!!
I've recommended them to a TON of people now, looking for cans in that price.
My nephew wouldn't give them back during Thanksgiving last year!!!!
Was just rockin' em Friday night w/ the HRT microStreamer - KILLER combo!
Fantastic read ljokerl
