Maybe you should just order them so we can find out! biggrin.gif

 

I'm a bit curious about these. If you did happen to get them, I'll be expecting some comparing against the Pro 900. rolleyes.gif

Oh you know I'd definitely post one.  They are definitely inexpensive, its just that there are a few other investments that I'm looking at (non audio) and I'm studying abroad in Paris this summer so I have to save money for that as well.  If a few more people post impressions and its clear that these have some good, emphasized bass, I'll definitely pick them up.

Oh and first post!

 

Well I stand corrected! I had left for lunch right before the e-mail was sent out so I was SOL it seems lol. If I had just stayed a wee bit longer rolleyes.gif

I ordered my FA-002w from GD-Audiobase. While the crafting for the cups took ~3 weeks, the shipping only took 2weeks and 3 days. (17 days in total)

 

I'm in Canada

looks cool, almost identical metal chassis as the TurtleBeach surround phones. Like the color.

Hey LFF,

 

Nice review mate. Your review made me order one of these as i have been looking for some head phones. I was considering the Bowers and Wilkins P5.

 

Oh I was one of the people that ordered it making it sell out in 10 mins, lol sorry guys...

 

Quick Question, in your review you mentioned you played Call of Duty with these headphones, How did you connect it and to what game system?

 

Thanks in advance.

As a neutral and ampless fellow, sticking with the FA-003s is going to be my plan of action here. Do these sound fine unamped, or were you dead serious when discussing their need for power?

Connected to my Emu-0404 USB while playing on my PC.

They sound decent unamped but these puppies shine with more power...make no mistake about it.

Nice review, I'd love to see that comparison.

I haven't heard the latest HD558/598 but I can give you direct comparisons with the HD600/650. wink_face.gif

Well, actually, in my package the company (GD-Audiobase) forgot to put the cable in there, so I couldn't connect the headphones (and it's a custom 1/4 weird cable that isn't exactly replaceable). The cable is still in transit, so it's been two months of wait for me already.

Is anybody else unnerved that Fischer is releasing high quality equipment such as their highly acclaimed Master Series alongside crappy drugstore headphones/IEMs? A business model like this is going to kill their reputation.
