Monoprice Hi-Fi DJ Style Headphone Review - Page 5

post #61 of 273

They are the Yamaha Rh10MS,  AKA Ultrasone HFI-450,   AKA  Ortofon O2 Headphones.41BYZlXueTL._SL500_AA300_.jpgWow these do kinda look the most like that Monoprice dj cans. hmm. I don't think these are the same. .Even though they look alike. I think these HFI-450 knock offs use 40mm drivers. Those monoprice use 50mm.

I don't think they're the same, the monoprice ones have 6 small holes and each side.

Would you recommend these for portable use as well?

Heya,

 

Added reviews for the MHP-839 (the monoprice DJ) to the site. As well as the HP541 (Kicker). Both can be found by clicking their names in my sig.

 

Freebie: By the way, if anyone wants my MHP-839's, just send me some money for shipping and they're yours.

 

Very best,

Great review.
post #66 of 273

anyone know how these compare to adh ad700's? i just got mine in the mail today but without being burned in the only thing i can tell is the bass is better (obviously)

 

i'm mostly speaking in terms of music, as the 700's would probably blow these away in gaming etc.

Heya,

 

AD700's don't have bass to really talk about. They have punch, which means it lets you know a bass sound just occurred, but other than that, they don't have bass to talk about. For gaming, the only improvement the AD700's have is a wide sound stage, which helps with imaging. That's it. Sound quality wise, the MHP-839 sounds better than the AD700 for virtually any listening. Not to sound like a hag, but the AD700's simply are not that great. They're really hyped on forums across the internet for `gaming' yet no one talks about them for anything other than that. Why? Because they're just not that good for music listening. They're so anemic it just leaves you feeling like something is missing.

 

That said, if you want a AD700 replacement, that has bass, that is even cheaper, but otherwise, just as good and better in some areas, the Samson SR850 or Superlux HD668B would basically be it.

 

Very best,

I'm pretty sure he also has the kickers, because he had a side by side picture in his reviews.

Heya,

 

They're great little headphones, for sure.

But they're not competing with my HE-500's.

So I have no reason to keep them, beyond simply testing and sending off to someone else.

 

Very best,

 

post #71 of 273

Nor did I expect them to... ;-)

(I actually want that one - HifiMAN HE-500 - ... probably in a couple of years)

 

Thanks.

 

 

P.S. Great reviews BTW.!

Thanks to MalVeauX for the monoprice cans. Just setup payment and shipping for them, they'll be a great set of throw in a bag, don't care if they're stolen headphones.

Wait till you guys hear these cans.. He is not exaggerating on the sounds..You guys will be pleasantly surprised with a can that sound like a $150 phone..

It just takes a few good men to try them out to understand why I have taken a whole bunch of poop just to let folks know about the kickers. 

 

It does my heart good to see people like Malveaux come out with an honest assessment on these phones.. Chime in on the threads to inform more people on these.. There are guys that look for the sounds on these cans but have yet to find them.. I say at these prices everyone should try them out.

Can anyone comment as to whether these compare to a Shure440 in terms of sound quality?

More bass, less clear, less define in bass and mids, the highs are sharper (meaning rougher), less comfortable
