:p what it's mike from headphonia lol, but I agree with the beats... but then again that's probably to get subscribers n bring them into the world of hifi, so I'm fine with it. Haha, I guess it might be true since he auditions a lot of things and has a lot of  summit gear

those pads seems it has good quality, but for safety measures, wipe the pads with tissue or your handkerchief after usage specially if it becomes oily or sweaty which is usually the case.

Thanks dyaems, will do

I have to say that the AudioQuest Dragonfly really does know how to grab hold of low impedance 'phones - it makes the Z1000s sound much more like they're supposed to (or how I'd imagine they should be!) - they actually now have a bottom end, and a much better balance than I'm used to...

 

Too little too late maybe to stop the demise of the Z1000, hopefully there will be a Z2000 in the pipeline though :)

 

(if so, this time i'm not going to buy them before their release date, and get stung how I did with these!!)

I'm just coming into this thread now, so these aren't very good for the money?

These are, in my opinion, some of the best for the money you can find.

^+1, I wish there was a supraural foldable version of these very fine cans.

newer version (7520) is out. All black + coil cord + professional blue sticker. At $400 at amazon. Doesn't come with a short cable, but you won't need a short cable since it's a coil cord. You can buy a hardback case from sony for the 7520 for about $20 if you want, but it already comes a nice bag :D

Everything's really opinionated :p Mike from headfonia seems to like them and thinks they're pretty good in the $500 range, but a_rec thinks not. a_rec likes the MDR-1R more, but Mike (few weeks ago in unboxing) didn't like them... then again, he said that he wasn't keeping the HD800, but still has one, so idk. A_recording's done a really detailed comparison w/ other headphones biggrin.gif (somewhere in the thread). Build-wise, 1R is mostly pastic, while z1000/7520 has magnesium cups (arms/branches are plastic I think). But, the 1R is uber comfy from what everyone is saying :p so it's up to you I guess.

Where can I find this case you speak of? I've been looking for a hard case for my Z1000s so I don't have to worry about breaking them when I travel. The pouch just doesn't cut it.

Thanks guys, so you guys really think these are pretty great huh if you're saying they are some of the best for around 500. Ill have to look through this thread more

FYI when I said that, I meant for the price they were when I bought them ($350). Although I know that now they are out of production, so it'll be harder to find. For under $400, these are my favorites. For $500, there are many other competitors, but I still think they're great.

I paid the full $500 for mine and couldn't be happier. They're amazing cans.

What abou the 7520s? Are they better or worse? I'm looking do the best closed can for around 500 that I can drive off of my leckerton mk-II
post #1515 of 1625
I personally have not heard those, although reviews seem to say they are incredibly similar. I would do a search for comparisons. If the 7520 is similar to the Z1000, I have no problem recommending it.
