The sound from the left driver was noticeably low (when compared to the right)... and there was a bad crinkling from inside both drivers during adjustment. It really is a shame because after researching I knew these were it. I did, however, love what was coming from the working right driver... so I arranged for a replacement.
It's such an attractive headphone, and certainly a capable one... But the community is divided about liking the signature or not. I've met people from both camps, but not heard it myself yet.

Getting on the Xbox again, this time with the 5.8 amped via FiiO E12 and my K712... Should be pretty ultimate! The noise has a pretty soft/rounded/even sound with little texture, so it's not offensive. Just reminds me of my noise-canceling headphone, but a little quieter.

Any volume setting suggestions for power-amping?

Divided over the K550? or the new K545?

What an odd choice, Change. I thought you were settling with a lot less? Why another headphone?

AND OMG, I LOST MY KSC35. My backup Sportapro was ran over by my mother when I visited her, and now I'm Kossless. :'(

I still have the custom PX100 with KSC75 clips, but tbey arent the most comfy.... looks like I'll have to buy some KSC75s... again.

New, sexy, portable, and seems like my kind of sound for my taste (warm, slightly bassy, well extended and accurate). You do know that is the new K545, right? Razordog gave me a special offer when I inquired about it (sorry, can't share the price).

 

Its smaller than the K550... with a detachable cable. Plus, like I mentioned before, I'm still in search of my portable over-ear/on-ear. It gets annoying removing my IEMs all the time when someone is trying to get my attention at school/work.

 

I can only hope I'm right with this one when my replacement arrives. I already shipped out the defective ones, today.

 

And, damn, sorry to hear about you being Kossless. Luckily, it was your Kosses and not you're MA900s or DNA Pro! :wink_face:

OOOH, i thought it was the K550. My mistake. Hmm... warm? Nice.


As soon as I opened my door to leave for work, I practically tripped over this:



Keep in mind, I didn't know if they were sending these to me... and it's 11pm...

They could've easily been stolen right front my front door.

Ooooh, that's a different story. I thought they were the K550. And yeah, Brian is a class guy who takes care of people. It's always a real pleasure to work with him.

OMG, yes. It has a detachable cable. IF these are worth anything, I'll be getting the Vmoda cable and using these as my headset.

The A30s will.. have to take a backseat. Time will tell.

Even as an onear, they feel more comfy than the DNA Pro, and have more extension, so they fit my head perfectly.

This is the on-ear version of the newer DNA Pro, right? Do tell...

I actually liked the DNA from the times I tried it with my own gear at the Apple Store. They're not bad at all for the price.

Boom Pro I hope. It is a lovely cable. I am biased.

Yeah, On ear.

First song... they already blow the hell out of the A30s. The A30s sound like AM radio for me. EVS stated his rumbles... mine sound as thin as any headphone I've used, outside of the AD700 and the like.

Yeah, the Boom pro.

It depends on how well these do for gaming. As long as they hit around a 7... I'll use them.

edit: I spoke too soon. After about 30 minutes, my ears are raw... the pads are absolutely massacring my ears. Sigh...I guess I'm just not on ear material. The extent of on ear comfort is only with clip ons...

Reviewing this one is not gonna be easy on my ears...literally. A shame, as I do find the sound quality to be quite pleasing.

Yeah, I was playing my CoD: Ghosts, and explosions rumbled like those gamer chairs with built-in speakers.

I submitted my 2nd email to Astro (they wanted some additional info). Get the ball rolling.

After the 3rd cable desaster of the UE 900 cable I got a full refund. They were practically endgame but that horrible cable problem that plagues this series should be a embarassment for UE. Unacceptable for a 400 bucks product. They are discontinued anyway. 

 

I have a hard time liking those few onear headphones I recently tested (KEF M500, P7) and will opt for inears again.
