Heh. Hopefully, should the TMA-1 live up to expectations, you can sell all three cans.
That would require me buying a TMA-1 and I don't know if that will happen at $200. That's more than twice what I paid for my HD25 ><.
WTF! Are these not the mdr-xb500 housings? I don't see the bass reflex ports though. Question of the day is.... Who copied who? Do these actually sound decent?
Apparently theres a Skullcandy Inspired version..... My god these things are ugly!
They are certainly inspired by the XB500 but they are not the same housings. The Subjekts are a hair smaller (every dimension is maybe 10% less than with the XB500) and a lot lighter. Much of the XB500 is metal while the Subjekts are all-plastic. The housings also have this rubbery texture (at least my white ones do) that I rather like. Sound-wise they are more balanced than the XB500s but a touch less resolving overall. Not worth the $80 MSRP by a long shot but these often sell closer to $25 which is reasonable if comfort is priority #1. I should also add that those strain reliefs are indeed pink, as is the 3.5mm L-plug.
Hey ljokerl, Olimoronio here. I just wanted to let you know to hold off on those Coby's you were thinking of getting. I just ordered a pair the other day and I can at least let you know if they're junk or not. Also, those full-sized Coby's I was recommending - well if you remember I took back my recommendation for them because they actually seemed to lose bass and become anemic with break-in. Not recommended,
One last thing - I noticed that you said you were going to review a bunch of hi-end DJ phones well why not throw a budget DJ phone into the mix? The Numark HF 125's are interesting. I really don't know why they call them DJ phones 'cause no self respecting DJ would ever use them but they are definitely fun and punchy with very powerful bass... Not boomy but powerful. If I had one major complaint it would be that they are a tad bright but that can be resolved with a simple mod or two. They run about $15 online.
Thanks, I'm still curious about the Cobys. And I do actually have the Numarks on my list already since I liked the 'flagship' PHX Pro quite a bit. Good phones - hopefully I find some time to post the review soon.
