Sure I have tried them..

Alone the comfort is enough to own them, just wear them witout music is nice..

they sound nothing like hi2050 or pro80, they have an enormous soundstage and are a little bright in the presentaion, thay are one of those WOOOOOOW phones, meaning it is something new an exiting and not at all like all the rest..

 

for classical or Jazz they fit like a glove, my taste 80s pop and heavy metal (the old kind of heavy metal, the really old kind) they are not quite up to the task or rather not really my taste, I have the same problem with AKG701 they also sounds good, but not my taste, over all they are a bit to clinical to me...also like 701 that comes close in signature but with a smaller stage, so close but different..

 

Hope this helps..

How about bass compared with the 701's?

There aren't many photos of them thought

(last ones to the left)
So, does anybody here have them or something? can anybody confirm that they're as good as people say?


On mp3store forum (polish site, google translate it) there are some reviews of them.

 

I (still) have them, but I have not used them much (but for instance I've used a lot Pro80 and HD6000, even HD5500 seems to be better),

As for flaws, I would say:

- The bass does not go down (there is not much of subass), they are a little bit mid-bass oriented (but I would not call them muddy)

- The highs are present, but they also don't extend that much, and are a little bit ragged (not smooth), but they are not sharped compared to Hi2050 or even Pro80

- The soundstage is wide, the instruments on the left/right side seemed to be big (too big), but overall placement and shape is not that good (still there is that wow factor)

- For me there is a little problem with the mids (probably related to the 3 things above, that is why I did not use them).

 

Those are kind of reverse of Pro80, they would be good for softer music, or instrumental/classical if you are willing to sacrifice the sharpness of sound,

saying it otherwise they are good if you want to relax to music.

Generally the balance is ok, and they provide big sound.

I would add that as I mentioned mainly 'flaws' my opinion will seem more negative that it is needed to be (but on that forum I mentioned above, there are a lot of people who like them much, espacially as go away cans, like in oposotion to more analitycal sound)

I will add a comparision to 701:

Bass = more midbass, and less subass than 701, 701 is more tight, and for me 701 have a hint of warmth (if you ignore boosted treble), but 671 are warm (even muddy in comparison)

Mids = 701 have a boost which makes female vocals sound good, on 671 the mids are just ok

Highs = 701 are brighter and smoother, where as on 671 I felt that it is a mixed bag

The diffrence is in soundstage, they are both wide, but AKG has small instrument sizes with kind of too much separation but with some good positioning; on 671 the instruments tend to be large, and the music picture is more messed up

So you like takstar over dt880?scary since beyers go for 250$ and above i got my takstar for 40$,that is what i call good value for money.If you want even better sound use the paramatric equalizer to reduce a particular frequency sound that cause noise.

post #2826 of 2828

ali express for 40$

post #2827 of 2828

Use the parametric equalizer to reduce the frequency that causes harshness,don't worry it doesn't affect soundquality even a little bit..search in google
