The MA900 just sold to some guy named "NamelessPFG"

post #16159 of 37340

Who could that be..? Lucky bastard!

 

On another note I know Nameless is getting a bunch of licorice pipes to sell illegally to EU citizens. He implied in the Stax thread.

LOL

 

Is that a euphemism for something?...I've got your licorice pipe right here.

I don't know what gave you that idea.

I'm being all serious, and it is to be understood literally.

I'm racist against blacks. Licorice that is. I only like mine in red.

Alright, I'll take your word for that. I had a brief time with it and my expectation of every headphone is that if it touches my ears, doesn't matter how good it'll sound it isn't going to be over my head at all. But I'll take your word for this one.

 

One question to you though, I know you recently got an E17. Are you using it with your Mixamp when playing on consoles?

I don't feel it necessary for gaming. I use the MA900 with the Mixamp alone.

As for the comfort, like any and every other headphone, I have to readjust it every once in awhile on my head (X1 and Annie as well). I can feel the driver covers, but it's mostly a non-issue. Certainly not Beyer level.

I won't say the ears pressing up against the drivers won't bother you if you're that sensitive to it. Just throwing caution in the wind. I don't see it ever being an issue for most people though. If I had to rate the comfort right now, it's definitely a 9.50, Taking .50 away from the lack of density on the pads, and the headband not completely disappearing. Still, yes, it's that comfy.

If someone can swap in some legitimate Beyer 880/990 velours (Beyer, not aftermarket), I'd be interested in hearing what it does to the sound. That could push comfort to a 9.75 if the sound isn't negatively affected, and could keep the ears from touching the drivers.

The licorice pipe is to be banned in EU if that makes more sense (due to bad influence on children, lol). I'll stop my OT ramblings now.

We always crossed the Danish border to get these black sticks when I was younger anyways, so we know how to get us the best stuff.
post #16168 of 37340

For the record, I never could stand the taste of black licorice. It immediately made me want some tongue bleach.

 

Red, vaguely strawberry-flavored licorice in the common form of Twizzlers, on the other hand? Decent stuff.

 

As for the MA900 purchase, I guess curiosity got the better of me...again. I'm not expecting it to be Stax by a wide margin, but if it even comes close to Mad Lust Envy's claims about the sound quality and comfort, then it could easily become my default recommendation for an all-around headphone for when 'stats are just too expensive-something I don't feel comfortable recommending the AD700 for.

Definitely not Stax level, especially in the treble (the treble is smooth, and calls zero attention to itself). But the mids are natural and well integrated, and the mid bass is pretty good. Sub bass is about as good as you expect from a Stax, which is to say, not really happening. But comfort and spaciousness, oh yeah. Just call it a comfortable all rounder that doesn't excel in any one thing but does basically everything well.

They are about the most inoffensive sounding headphone this side of the HD650/Annie/ESP950, beating the comfort and price of all three.

I've been lurking around this forum here recently and noticed that you were talking about the ma900s. I have astro a40s and was wondering if it is worth it to replace them with the ma900s?

 

The ma900s are right in my price range, and I'm looking for a decent set of headphones to game with.
