Beautiful bass to mid sound. Best Bass quality I have heard. After 5 minutes right speaker flutters and stops. tapping on right cup brings it back fluttering. On an iphone/ipod or cowon it's toast. I never even amped it.

 

What a depressing experience

The first 5 minutes were really awesome. I was planning on letting it play a bassy song for a while at a moderate volume before I tried to introduce it to an amp.

 

After hearing the shrill screaching highs on a Hfi 580 ......these Q40 sounded wonderful. I am so far beyond pissed. I almost ordered a new fiio cable and alpha dog pads for these.

 

If i tap the right cup it comes in distorted and only gives any sound if I tap the cup. 

 

I'm going through the stages of grief.....this sucks.

Its a shame you got a bad pair, try getting a replacement. They are definitely amazing cans.
post #9275 of 11259

ok just yolo'd a non-warranty q40 from ebay and alpha pads from mr speakers for 250 aud (220~ usd)

 

expensive as fk to get it shipped here but oh well.

post #9276 of 11259

I am gonna ask for an exchange (I'm in the denial stage of grief?)

 

 

Questions.....

 

1. Can these cans even take an amp? Seriously? I didn't even amp them and the riight side basically evaporated. These musta been made in 2007? The sticker said 2013 and the plastic wrap said 2013 but the dust all over the box after unwrapped and the driver dissolving says old.

 

What a spectacular fail. 

 

It played like an angel for enough moments to try again but do these REALLY take amp?? I have a FiiO e12......is this gonna take that??

post #9277 of 11259
Am sorely tempted to get alpha pads for my pair too, but $60 is almost what I paid for them :L

definitely, considering a few ppl amp them up hard with bass. i know the two biggest q40 supporters i see in every thread/page (lol) rpgwizard uses zo2.1 and orgeonian double amps with zo + e11. just a defective pair most likely.

 

hope mine isnt defective becos i have absolutely no way to get my money back lol. there are no distributors in my country.

Perhaps it's the cable? 

post #9281 of 11259
Yes, they can handle amps without issues. The power didn't blow the driver. Try fiddling with the cable first. If it's not the cable then the driver was just defective. Great cans but they don't seem to check the drivers.
post #9282 of 11259

I read all about the cable so I was prepared. I had the beats extra cord (very small tip fit nice) and another.  The original cord needed to be pushed sideways to get both channels. That's ridiculous right out of the box. It was screwed in completely btw. 

 

The right side driver was not suffering intermittent signals.

I have experience with driver failure of all sizes. This was a physically distorted driver. Not intermittent signal reception.

 

It was a fluke? I read about this happening on Amazon but that's troll/fanboy city so I don't connect it but it happened within minutes to that person. Hard to believe when I read it but it happened to me within minutes. I was beside myself. I took deep breaths. Relaxed. methodically switched out various combos of sources and cables and it (the right side driver was goner)

For the brief few minutes it had the nicest 20-120Hz slope I have ever heard out of any can ever.

How in the fuuu do they not fix that little driver wire just waiting to get yanked out of the cup/better cushions/driver issue,failure,vibration. Talk about a gem in the rough. It's an amazing price /performance ratio that would be all over google (i found a couple youtube reviews) but not near as many as ath m50 which this briefly blew away. M-Audio has issues with responding to customers according to this site. Throw a little quality control on these and you got a legend. Fuuu the ath m50 This woould stomp that ass if they just put a bit of energy in the right places. 

 

Does ANYONE who heard these and the ath m50 feel the m50 to be superior? no way but the rep for quality might be killing this gorgeous sounding set of cans.

 

I am SO PISSED!!

Is anyone from M-Audio on this site??

 

EDIT

Well Amazon jp has no more so I'm getting a refund not new cans..........rrrrrr:mad:

I'm not a diehard bass head as I have a number of bass light cans for particular reasons, but I do love to listen to my edm with heavier bass usually - even if I change it up with some electronic on detail/soundstage oriented cans.

I own a Fostex TH600, LCD2 and JVC DX1000. Hardly the heaviest bass ever but I do love sub bass rumble and the pulse of edm. The lcd2 is definitely weakest in quantity among them.

I should be trying/getting a Signature DJ in about a month mainly for portable use with my fiio x3.

Are there any other flagship bass beasts I'm not aware of? I know the D7100 is not too well received.

AKAI....good mixing audiophile brand in Japan.

 

I might pull the trigger on this...anyone heard?

 

 

Actually they have a new model being released on Friday and they look like this

 

http://akai-pro.jp/mpc-headphones/

 

50mm drivers 

Gun metal aluminum

 

Worth a shot. They make Mixing equipment so i gotta assume they got some clue.

 

They look like a Beats Pro clone only cheaper and probably better made. **fingers crossed**

 

This could be O.K.....or awesome.
