I have them on the burn in as I type but I am very impressed even on open listen. I have a feeling these will do awesome with gaming and movies. Clarity and air with nice stage and balance.
 

Will see where the sound goes with some quality driver blasting on the burn in station.


looking forward to your report on them DS!  i wonder why they are being cleared out so cheaply...........

Have some one from the US to snag one for you and send your way. PM some friends on head fi. Will be worth the effort. This being said. Now that I know how they sound. I wouldn't feel ripped off for spending $200 on SQ alone.

From memory, I will have to do this once I get a proper burn in on the SHP9500. Mid bass is more emphasized on the Yamahas. Mids are touch more forward on the SHPs. Both have some good airiness to the sounds. Due to size of driver and housing I think the SHPs have more depth and a bit more stage to work with.

Me too. Can't wait to hear these after a week. Already sound terrific after an overnight of blasting.  Will report when I get some more time in with them. They sound amazing thus far.

I had the Yamaha HPH-200, which I thought were a great headphone for the price I got them at, $75/80(originally $200). I liked them more than the Philips CitiScape Uptown's(MSRP $150) I had owned before, which were also pretty good but not as good as the HPH-200's imo.

But then I got the Sony MDR-MA900, which are BIG step up in refinement & quality, and I sold my Yammy's to a friend because they became obsolete to me.

That being said, I remember someone saying these Philips are like a little less quality version of the MDR-MA900. The Sony's were originally $300, and I got mine for $170. The Philips SHP9500 were originally $200 or $250 I think... But now that they're at $50-65 is crazy! Great deal!!
End information rant. I bet they sound great!

Id love to hear comparrison with ath ad700, just gaming/movies. Sounds pretty similar so far. Does l2 have more bass or just the x2? Im pretty happy with the ad700, just would like a little more rumble

Glad to be of some influence.

 

So as promised I just played about 2 hours of the Witcher 3 and now I am watching Rambo on my laptop using my SHP9500s.

 

These sound great for both. I think as good as anything I own actually. Ambient sounds pop. Witcher 3 has some great gaming audio. I can hear everything going on in the game, sound field is amazingly open with distinct directional cues. These are going to be great for FPS games. Will try some BF4 and COD.

 

Explosions and movies sound tracks sound fantastic. @ mikaveli06.. Any one of Philips cans will have more bass than the AD700. From memory these SHP9500s don't have a wide a stage as the AD700s and has less treble energy as well. It has been a while since I had my AD700s but I think the mids are more focused on the SHP9500. These are just balanced better from memory. All the Philips phones will have more bass, the L2 has solid bass end to them as I am sure the X2 does as well. The X1 more than likely has the most bass quantity out of the Philips open phones. The SHP9500 has a solid neutral bass presentation it is very similar in bass quantity and quality to the AD900X.

 

A mod I tried a long time ago is replacing the velour pads of the AD700 with the pleather pads from my A900X and it brought the bass up quite a bit. I would try that if you just want more bass from the AD700. The negative is you will have to deal with sweaty pleather instead of them velours.

Good stuff Ds! If anyone can compare them to the Yamaha MT220s, I am all ears!
