Avoid the HTX7 like the plague. One of the worst headphones I have ever heard.


Interesting, but they seem less impressive than the HTF 600s. Have you heard both?

Thanks

I thought that the worst headphones are the Sennheiser hd202...

Judging by the few less than glowing opinions on them, I took that they were a bloated, warm mess. The HTX7 is generally recommended, and that's the same signature I got from those, by the same company. They were one of my least favorite headphones ever. I have no doubt that I would hate the HTF600.FOTM headphones is the vibe I'm getting from the HTF600.

the RP-HTX7 are actually very good for the price. Try out the tape mod that brings out the mids and tames the bass a bit. And they are comfy and isolate really well.

Or get a better headphone that sounds good. They were absolute trash for me. Generally, if I have to mod them to make them sound good, they're not good. I'd rather mod an already good headphone. No thanks.

the monoprice kicker clones sound great for 21$.

the panasonic 600 are decent- they are a fad right now, but still a high mark for panasonic.

koss portapros are great for the price as well

Spec wise (even though it doesn't say much) the HTX 7 is much crapper than the HTF 600. However, I am wondering if the  HAS700 is really this good.

 

It is so difficult to find a nice cheap headphone. Everyone has their own taste. And this is what is making it so difficult. The HD 202 has more than 1600 reviews on amazon with an average of 4/5. But from reading reviews here on Head-fi they are much worse than similiar priced headphones. My mission is to find the best overall cheap headphone. Since my budget is so limited.

 

Thanks

The monoprice is a little bit difficult to import. From that massive thread about the panny 600, they are unbelievable. But, I don't know how biased that thread are. It seems a lot of people try and compare it to $100+ HPs. I want to know is how it compares to other similar priced HPs. Also saw that the panny 890s is now really cheap.

There's one example on the Aamazon review section I just saw today. One of the latest reviews is from someone who bought the HTF600 based on the raving reviews it got on here. Its almost impossible to find subjective reviews online, especially on Amazon, where 99% of headphone reviews are glowing reviews. The person pretty much described it the way I thought it would sound: a boomy, muddy mess.

I really hate glowing reviews, so I pay attention to the very few that have something negative to say.

I know, most of these reviews aren't something to go by. However, I think the reviews here on Head-fi have a little bit more substance. 

 

Looking at reviews on the HAS 700, gives the same thing. People claiming it to be muddy. It seems, most HPs have a similiar pattern. Some people love it, some think it is super muddy. Just read a review on amazon about the HAS 700, where he stated that the HD201 is much better. 

 

This is the thing that makes it so difficult to find a nice cheap HP. Looking for expert reviews are also hard to come by, since they mostly review the expensive stuff.

I owned both the HD201 and HAS700. The HAS700 is definitely better to me.
