Sometimes, ya gotta hit bottom to begin climbing back up...wink_face.gif


DONT WORRY BE HAPPY, doctor jazz!  I'm thinking of writing a new audio cookbook called STEWS AND  CASSEROLES from UNUSED AUDIO GEAR, which will

feed us if food shortages develop. You won't go hungry! and enjoy the audio madness, its a good thing and protects us from global warming, nuclear war, and

greed for power....

I had the opportunity to be one of those beta testers for the HE-1000. I declined. lol


I have no doubt it sounds better than than the HE-560, but this one is so satisfying. Between it, the Angie, the Um Pro 50, AS-2, and Pandora Hope VI, I'm good. Plus, I'm still enjoying the FX850, Cardas Ear Mirror (has finally opened up beautifully), On1 and a few others.

Hey Ds, give this song a listen when you get the chance with the SHP9500. I bet it would sound good! Sounds great on the MA900! Great vocals; it's EDM btw.

This sounds fantastic using the SHP9500

Yes, Here is why . I actually find the SHP9500 more comfortable believe it or not. The AD900X is comfy enough but that cloth material on the pads are kinda scratchy on my face. I have to get used to that and then forget about it. The pads on the SHP9500 are nothing to write home about but they aren't scratchy. 

 

While the 2 phone share similar type tuning I actually find the SHP9500 with a more solid tuning perhaps better imaging and balance over the AD900X. After several days of burn in these SHP9500 using my Zu cables sounds absolutely unbelievable. I can't get over how little I spent for this sound.

 

Let me put it this way guys. An iem that produces the sonics of these cans you would have to spend $300-$500 easily, I have no doubts about it. These sound better to my ears than my $500  Nuforce Primo 8 lol. These do love a good amp. I am listening to these using my X3 Gen 2 and Cayin C5  and I am astonished yet once again just how clean smooth spacious the sound is. Imagery while not clinical, is absolutely solid on these cans again astonishing for the price. For an open can these don't have the widest stage. They don't have the best resolution or do they have the best bass, treble or mids for that matter but what they do have it outlandish solid sound that clearly has the ability to translate what your sources throw into it with ease. These do scale real well with more power and clean sources. When I was debating getting these cans I was thinking.  There is no way these cans are going to be anywhere near the Fidelio L2s. 

 

How surprised was I when these cans actually do hang with the L2s. The SHP9500 is not a downgrade in sound from the L2s. These might be an actual upgrade to the X1 actually. These certainly has the better clarity and balance over them.
 

The changes in sound I have noticed with burn in. The treble cleans up, sound expands and bass comes out to balance the sound. I have to say for everyone reading this thread. If you see these cans for sale like I did or on sale for $65. Do not hesitate to give them a try. These will surprise every single one of you. Are these worth getting even if you own whatever headphones?

 

YES!  $50-$65 cans just simply do not have the right to sound this good.
