They sound REALLY good with Dolby Headphone.
Hows the soundstage? Feel free to reference the PC360 or AD700 if you want, as I'm familiar with them both...
I decided to bite on those Fidelio X1s
I've been wanting to hear them for many months, and this was as good an opportunity as any. I've read too many good things about them which has made me too damn curious.
Expect a full review, with the X1s being compared against the Anniversaries and Q701s in detail.
Should I decide to let them go, they'll be right back up for the same price I got them for.
If I do sell them though, I will first be sending them to "OP" so he can audition them himself.
It was super-nice of you to loan me your HE400s MLE, so I will of course repay the kindness.
Even if I decide to keep them, you can still expect a "care package"
I decided to sell my CALs.
They just don't ever get used next to my AKGs, and I don't like to see them sitting in a box.
Shipped for $45. > http://www.head-fi.org/t/665824/creative-aurvana-live
Bassy and trebly, but it sounds like they do it better than the other bassy and trebly can's - meaning they do it tastefully and don't butcher the mids. I'm hoping they'll be a fun can for gaming and movies, like the anniversaries on steroids with extra bass and airier treble. I can't get a straight answer on their treble quantity. I've read everything from them being darker than the Anniversaries to being brighter than the HE400s. Classic Head-fi.
Worst case scenario is I just sell them for the same price, and I'm only out the cost of shipping to audition them.
That's true. The HE400 isn't the brightest headphone, and the treble is actually very clean and transparent sounding. It just sounds off when heard next to the rest of the signature, which can make it come across as overly sparkly.
It's nowhere near the DT990 or anything.
