im interested in the FXH30s but the FXT100 and FXT200LTD had my attention the moment i found out they were centered around high resolution and clarity.

High quality sound all together.

Build seems solid. Much better than MDR-1R. It's not light in weight but not overly heavy. Clamping force is significant but very nice pads to take the pressure away. Gotta be the best looking headphone to date for me.
Nice danny, on Monday I should be able to provide my own impressions, I hope I enjoy it.

By less forced, do you mean less forward and less grainy sounding?

I've seen some of your comments on them wink.gif . We seemed to have heard a few of the same things and our opinions match up pretty darn close. CKR9, Tenore, GR07 MK1, CN40, B2(DBA-02 for me), MH1, ASG-1, XBA 4(40 for me), and probably others as well.

Any tip recommendations??


Looking good Dannybai! I keep saying to vlenbo that the GM are the best looking of the MSR bunch.
It's true, he showed and persuading me into purchasing the brown. The red still looks really good though.....

Less forward and less grainy would be right. You're gonna love these vlenbo.

There has been a lot of discussion of these already at the 1964 Ears thread, and this dedicated thread.

 

Its a kick-starter program. You offer some cash to help in development, they give you back a gift of the finished product.

Great you get to pay all their start up costs and they get to sell at full pop into the marketplace. Hmmmmm Economics 101.Peez Poor investment strategy. If I'm investing I want shares not a discount off your product.

 

Hardly wait till GM gets into kickstarter:)

This.

It's great for companies and great for consumers to have a chance at something that might otherwise have not been made, but an investment is not a word I'd use to describe it. More like a prepayment with possible benefits (and delays that make it a wash).

Yep to add a bit to vwinter, you are getting behind a product not investing in the company. They sell for whatever they are gonna sell for and the backers get the product either early or for a much reduced rate or both. These are small companies usually and Kickstarter is a good way to get a product funded or otherwise we might not even see said product. GM is apples to oranges there. Just sayin :)

Received my ATH-MSR7.

 

 

Impressions: OH MAN GOSH DANG.

 

The vocals are a good improvement over the ckr lineup. The voices are a bit more subdued in the detail and I believe the 5khz dip has been fixed with this headphone as strings have better bite now. The highs are frigging amazing!!!!! The bass is just right in amount of quantity like danny said (though it depends on the song), and even better, the bass is tight.

 

The staging is great in height and has plenty of depth.

 

THIS HEADPHONE ROCKS!!!!!

 

 

....

 

 

Until I heard the lower treble sound slightly OH SO SLIGHTLY sibilant to my ears. :(

 

Danny, if you can, would you mind listening to beatle's norwegian wood? There was an annoying sibilance (slight very slight) that caught my attention. It's when they play with the finger cymbals I believe.

 

 

 

EDIT: THe headphones look gorgeous in gunmetal, looks like jant was not playing with my heartstrings when he recommended them. Thanks bud!

 

The pads are comfortable as heck, the clamp is definitely tight enough to harm one's head, but the padding helps mitigate this possible problem.

 

The vocals for females are awesome, and the treble sounds fantastic. The lower treble may have a potential sibilance, and the bass is nicely textured. The stage is intimate but has a great height and depth once again. Strings have better weight and crunch compared to the ckr series.

Alright, I just want to verify something. I may have been biased and uninformed about something regarding cables.


What if I was using the provided cables the wrong way?

I.e. using the input plug as the connector plug for the headphone?



Also, I already made a switch and no difference in sound is heard

Only asking to be unbiased as possible. I was using the portable player device cable; switched to the smartphone cable and I like the lack of sibilance.


Edit: I was using a samsung galaxy note 4 with terrible quality mp3 apparently. I went to hear the music on the pc, but I still suffer some slight sibilance with Norwegian Wood by the Beatles.

I listened to Seven days, which had sibilance in another headphone *Cough re700* and it doesn't exhibit this problem.

Despite this sibilance problem, the mids are fantastically smoother and better weighted than the ckr series. Unfortunately, the mids are still forwarded, but as danny said, the mids are at least 1db less forwarded than the ckr series.

Staging is still impressive as always. I enjoy the bass and the detail that the headphone outputs, but most of all I enjoy the treble response of this headphone. Now I hear that the timbre of sticks hitting against each other, string instruments, and piano sounding that much better.



Headphone is hard to drive unfortunately...

I didn't detect any sibilance vlenbo and using the smartphone cable.

Sorry did not see that

Anyone willing to take one for the team and give the new Audio Technica CKB70 a try? I have a feeling that it might be an improved CKN70...
