REVIEW: Fischer Audio FA-011 - OFF THE DEEP END!! - Page 10

post #136 of 2071

Hey LFF, nice review. Based on what you wrote, I'm gonna order these as soon as they come back in stock. I already have my neutral phones taken care of with my mod'd D7000's.

 

From your review, I'm thinking that the FA-011 might contend for one of the bassiest /impactful headphones that don't cloud the other frequencies while enjoying a nice soundstage of an open design. Would this be a reasonable assumption? Sorry if this has been covered already.

 

I listen to a lot of baroque music, which could stand a little more bass emphasis. All of which is very well recorded.

Ordered the combo of Amp + Headphone. This is gonna be my first Amp and audiophile grade headphone beyersmile.png

LFF,

 

Nice review, I would love to give them a listen some time.  I also own the FA-003 and really enjoy them.  But there is always a place for some headphones that have a nice tight bass to place some Earth Wind and Fire or Rick James.  bigsmile_face.gif

That is correct and that is exactly how I feel about the FA-011.

Zippy2001! You know you are always to listen to anything I have. We should get together at Jasper994's place again to listen to some music and enjoy some good food! Earth, Wind and Fire does sound great on FA-011. Haven't heard any Rick James but MC Hammer sounds impressive. wink_face.gif

This review just sounds too good to be true, especially considering these are $115 headphones. From what the review says, there's no reason to even look at the Senn HD650. I guess I'll have to try these since they're rather cheap, even if I don't like them there's enough hype in this review to have them resold at face value np.

wee sell me an fa-004 that you dnt use anymore guys  :)

I am very interested in ordering a pair. I have a set of LCD-2's on the way. I don't know if these would be useful for anything over those, or if it would just redundant.

post #143 of 2071

Does anyone have a suggestion for an amplifier to compliment these?  I'm thinking something <$300 like the Asgard.  I would like for it to be able to power my hd595 as well.  I listen to metal, punk, rock, trance, and rap.

I don't know about that. The review specifically goes on and on about how these are not neutral headphones at all, with heavy bass and higher treble. Doesn't sound like it compares the the HD650s at all... While HD650s may have a bit more bass than the HD600s, I don't think I've ever heard them described as basshead phones, and many people attest to the being almost completely neutral with just a slight bulge in the low end and slight dip in the high end. That doesn't sound remotely close to how these were described... Sounds like different headphones for different peoples tastes.

Hm...

These guys look pretty sweet, but are these headphones that you can take outside?

 

post #146 of 2071

i dont think so, you will probably hear tons of outside noises and everyone can probably hear what your listening too outside 

post #147 of 2071

I agree, they are open backed and would not work well outside. I also think I remember reading that they are power hungry. Not to an extreme, but also another consideration when considering portable use.

With open cans you run into these two problems:

 

1) Your sound will leak due to the can's open design--people will hear you play Bieber, or whatever embarrassing music you listen to.

2) You will look like an alien.

 

If #2 doesn't discourage you from taking it outside the home, then #1 shouldn't stop you. I do it sometimes... just at moderate volumes.

I see!

My original question was actually only about reason #2 -- I hadn't really thought about isolation, to be honest.

Now, another question: Is the Neptunian design school unique to open headphones? If so, why?
