But yeah, it's pretty damn good. I might send it to you guys for testing soon if you want if I don't end up selling it at some point in the near future.

 

I don't know how much credibility I have but I would dig giving these a try.

I'd definitely send it to you. You'd more than likely would be first, considering you're next door almost.

It'd be the typical guys:

Evs, Chico (though I'm sure he's getting his), Nameless, calpis (I see you bud), and probably tdock if he's interested.

No promises. If I put it up for sale after review, I'll give it like a week. If it sells, sowee.

My recommendations:

$0-$100: Creative Aurvana Live

$100-200: Sony MA-900, DT990 Pro

$200-$300: Philips Fidelio X1

$300-400: K702 65th Anniversary
 

 

Thank you MLE :)

I looked at the MA900 too.. the strange thing is that here in Europe these cost MORE than the X1.. and a lot more.. 

 

The X1 is 199 euros, 265 dollars

The MA900 is 255 euros, 350 dollars

 

Given this thing I should go for the X1, what do you think?

Schweet. I expect good news. It's not the AKGs, but I find that you'll be very happy for it's price.


I wish I had an HD558 to compare. Both have a similar tonality IIRC, though the MA900 is more open, and fuller sounding.

Thanks, it makes me feel like I starting to be part of the fam... lol

 

I have something up my sleeve, still, and will be keeping you guys posted. I just have to find these suckers at a better price. They're not expensive, at all, just rare to find because the manufacturer hasn't really distributed this model in the US.

Where do you live? It's 159.95€ from Amazon.de

Well, back to my gaming session I go; I was taking a snack break and checked in on you guys while doing so.

 

I'm almost done with this game and I must say this:

 

Ellie is officially one of my favorite characters this generation... she is one bad a** 14 year old.

Katun has a nice review of it with a comparison to the HD598.  Maybe you can extrapolate how the 558 would sound...

I just don't have much love for the 598. I thought it was dry, thin, too mid rich. I'm beginning to wonder if I had a dud, because I greatly prefer the 558 to it. The 558 is wonderfully warm, well balanced, and just a workhorse all rounder. Not as refined as the MA900, but it is enjoyable regardless. The MA900 further improves on what I like about the 558. I mean ALL of it.

The MA900... I REALLY believe in this headphone. I think soundstage nuts will LOVE them, because it doesn't compromise musicality and richness for thinness to add air.

The more I talk about them, the more I'm starting to think they're not going anywhere (as in I won't sell them).

I live in Italy: 255 euros from Amazon.it.. O.o the reason it costs so much less in the .de site is out of my comprehension :|

Anyway it seems to be one of that articles that amazon won't sell everywhere: I can add it to my cart etc but when going to buy it the familiar "some articles can't be sent to your country" warning appears -.- So I can't order from the .de site :|

 

Thanks anyway

Try Ebay. Some places sell worldwide. The MA-900 is too new and too niche to really have fakes floating around.
