MC5's or something else... - Page 2

post #16 of 23

Sorry, the MC5s do not exaggerate anything. They're giving you what's there on the recording. Many of us listen to acoustically produced, well-recorded music and we want cans that don't add to or subtract from that. If you primarily listen to poorly mastered stuff then sure, you may want something more rolled-off.

I do NOT listen to bad music (lady gaga and such) I mainly listen to Michael Jackson and older well recorded music, also the rock I listen to are older too (Black Sabbath, Metallica, Led Zeppelin and so on, always FLAC however...

No reflection at all on the music itself, but much of that stuff IS badly recorded- multimiked and heavily manipulated- by the best classical / jazz recording-quality standards.

I know, however would it really be that big of a problen, I mean will my ears begin to bleed when listening to my ordionary music? I like precise music, but I would still like to hear other music without vommiting...

Well, you see, many of us would specifically NOT buy cans that make the recordings you listen to sound their best- those same cans make my music sound dull and bass-heavy. Different strokes for different folks. I'm just saying, don't blame the messenger (Etymotic), but do be aware that strict accuracy might not always be what you need (and that's OK.)

With my iAudio 9 they don't sound metallic, they're a bit colder, because I'm more used to Silver Bullet and PR300, unless your prefer really warmer earphones or you're a basshead, I think you can go for it.
 

 

Where do you buy them from? On Ebay.co.uk the HF5's are like 100£ frown.gif
 

You can get them at Pixmania DK, I ordered mine at Pixmania FR because of fees+shipping amount when ordering from the US.

Well as I said, I like precise sound, however it would be a shame, to buy something which would become too "boring" after time, I don't want colored sound, but I'm afraid that too precise sound will make the listening to serious... How's your opinion?

Well Pixmania DK ships from the states, and I could run into a pretty big fee (35%) if it runs into customs... Also Ebay.co.uk got them at the same price...

Also it was the HF5's I was intererested in knowing where to buy cheap...

I don't know how anybody could be bored with realistic presentation of how instruments and voices sound. And the MC5, despite its low price, is carefully engineered to give you exactly that. So no, accurate phones don't bore me in the least. But that's me- people should get what sounds best to them, and there's only one way to find that out. (If you find you've made a mistake, the "For Sale" forum is your friend.)
