How is the noise isolation on these Quinto? I have high hopes for them for noise isolation as they're closed back, and I'm in need for a new set of closed cans (my only one at the moment is D1001, which isolates like an open can). If they're efficient in this regard, I'm almost 100% certain that I'll purchase these.

I beg to differ.

Isolation is very good, way better then the D2000

Thanks Quinto for posting. Looking for a closed can and the 840 maybe the one.

Quinto, how is their comfort (clamping, fit and size of the earpads)?
post #39 of 2111
I got mine today too, so I can answer some of the comfort questions.

The clamping is somewhat hard, but it's not like it hurts you or anything, it's harder then my DT770 Pro for sure, but my DT's have been worn for more then one day so maybe the Shures will loosen up.

The fit on the pads is good, but the space inside the pads is less then my DT770 and my old Senn HD595. This coupled with the clamping makes a uncomfortable pressure on my ear. If you compare it with the DT770's the outer edges of my ears doesn't even touch the driver, but on the Shure's they do, which causes the pressure.

The earpads themselves are extremely soft and comfortable, a lot better then the velour pads on the DT770's. I hope the clamping loosens up a bit, and im sure it will since I've experienced them getting a bit more comfortable during the 10 hours that I've owned them.

They are very comfortable to me. My ears seem to be the right size for the pads, I have medium ears, the clamp isnt to much, I have a rather big head..
They have a tighter clamp then what I remember of the D2000, but the Shure's bass and isolation is much better.

I can wear the headphone for hours without any issues..

Are these suitable to be ran straight out of a portable devices 3.5mm headphone out? Or they need a beefy amplifier?

Hmm, So they're easily driven you say? How long is the cord? 3-4ft or a standard studio 9ft+?
