Just got these and up on YouTube. Hope you guys like it.
Got to see part of the face behind the text, don't you just hate the high gloss reflection from the box haha Just out of curiosity how many Sony cans do you now have? Going by memory you have 2 or 3 of the XB line and at least a couple of the ZX line as well as a V6 and now a couple of the SA line. You even have a Sony IEM if I remember right. By my count including IEM you have roughly 9 different Sony headphones alone. Your wife must be ready to make you sleep in the doghouse lol
Oh by the way congratulate me I just ordered the Sony MDR EX 600 IEM today I can hardly wait to hear what they can do.
Sorry for the delay response. I've been busy playing with my new 1-bit DSD (aka SACD) recorder by Korg. Fantastic machine!
Anyway, the ear pad fits good around my ear as do the SA5000, BUT I now like the leather on the SA5000 better because the cloth on the SA3000 is kinda scratchy. Maybe it needs to be broken in. It's not velour so its not as silky smooth. I have yet to do the ear pads switch because I wanted to hear what they sound like before I monkey with it. I'll report back on it as soon as I do the switch. I'll post pictures too. I know you guys like pictures. :)
As far as how the SA3000 compares to the SA5000? I find it to be easier to listen to, but not dull. The SA5000 can be a bit bright at times on some music, but the SA3000 is smoother. I'll post more as I use it more. Stay tuned.
Can you switch between the pads, and put the pads of 5k on the 3k?
