I personally would never buy from a seller with zero rating, so I hope whoever orders from this seller receives his items instead of being scammed. And on another note, with China Post's slow processing and shipping for the past year, "up to a month" is a pretty optimistic estimate - that's usually how long it takes them to just process the package.

I checked the seller's online store, most of the items are fakes or counterfeits. I'm just not sure about the C3 and I hifi but the photos look real tho. Although I can vouch for Aliexpress, I'd still think twice about purchasing from a seller with no feedback rating.

Unbelievable, never ends, the C3 is tempting...

Seems a few guys on that thread purchased the player. I would wait n see if they follow through with the player at that price. There was deals like that on ebay where a vendor would sell an item for real cheap but probably scammed a lot of people that bought into it.

 

If it is legit it might be worth ordering but the sensible side of me says there is something fishy about that deal.

Anyway, I'm not the headphone guru DS, Dannybai, EricP10, and the other SUPREMUSes (?SUPREMI?) out there are, but I've listened to good gear for a long time, and am amassing a rediculous collection of headphones over the past year or so, so here goes. This is a matter of taste, of course, what your sonic preferences are, but I think these Martin Logan's are the real deal, especially at what look to be current prices. I think they are probably worth the $300 list (though, at that price and, I'm not sure price and "worth" is so easily correlated. Suffice to say I think they are competitive with the phones I've heard in the $100-$400 range, though that is by no means an exhaustive list, pretty much what's in my profile). At the discounted prices, I think they are worth it even if you HATE the sound preference, just for the look and feel of them (the leather is the best looking/feeling I've come across outside of expensive furniture). Here's the package:

 

O

 

Nice solid box, feels like luxury when you first open it...

 

 

Not sure how easy it is to see, but the case us actually black, leatherette (not like the headphones), solid but light, has a little pocket inside that holds the removable cable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here they are, definitely the ones I own I'd most like to be seen outside in! As I mentioned earlier, they aren't bass monsters, they are very finicky as to how you position them (even slightly off and you lose the bass, it is there when on correctly, controlled, rhythmical, but less than my Senn 650's or AT A900x in amount, going from memory, haven't directly compared yet). The design in on ear, ane the cups angle forward in a funny way and have slight angle as well. They do clamp a bit tightly as well, some might find this all uncomfortable, I'm usually very sensitive to all this (and like iem's better as a result, though fit on those is another story), but, in my short time with them, haven't found comfort to be a major issue. LOTS of detail, imaging, fun IMO

Those look premium.  Kinda of a retro vibe with modern esthetics. I know Danny had the earphones and those looked nice as well. Thanks for your report Doc. Those have standard mini to mini headphone jack or is the headphone end proprietary plug.? If they are standard 1/8th to 1/8th jack.. Gotta try out some of them silver cables Danny got for his X1.

It's the standard mini to mini, had done a quick change with my wife's Citiscape Downtown cables, The M-L cable sounds much better than that one, but it should! Which cable did Danny go for? My one negative so far is a mild "tizziness", silver cables have been reported to smooth this sort of thing, so does burn in, which I will commence when/if I take these things off my head :beyersmile:

I just edited the original post and I have to say. Our thread here covered a craptacular amount of phones. Lol. I had no idea it was gonna balloon out to where it is now. But hey this thread is an on going testament to all of you guys enjoying this hobby and that is what it is all about. Good job fellas and keep them discoveries rolling. I think with Sony about to unleash yet more exciting product and the numerous others that will be making new gears and phones for all of us to discover who knows what we will be discussing about this time next year.. But I do know we are getting some really great gear phones at all cost levels. I feel as if the industry is at an upswing in development and what we are getting now for phones are a lot better than what we got last year..

 

On this great weekend I am glad I can share in the passion the love of this hobby with you all. You guys make this thread happen and that again is what it is all about. Happy listening to everyone and to all that contribute to the discussion of what we do. What we are. And where we are headed. :beerchug:

These cables gonna look slick and will up the sound of them headphones. This is a more premium 4X core cable over what Danny posted but I think will be worth the extra to get. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Male-to-Male-HiFi-Headphone-Cable-Audio-AUX-for-Beats-Studio-Solo-HD-Pro-Detox-/111145754164?  And there is an L jack version that cost $40. http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-5mm-male-to-male-Stereo-Audio-HiFi-Audiophile-Headphone-Extension-Cable-AUX-/111148948522?  Either way. I haven't bought one yet but from Dannys report on these cables. These are the real deal.

Thanks for the report on the Mikros 90's doc.  I had the 70 earphones and it was the flattest sounding piece of gear I've heard but had a good amount of mid-bass.  I liked it and kept it for awhile but it was just too boring in the end.  I think the 90's will bring more detail and better overall sound from what you've posted.  

 

As for the cables, I got the 2 core PCOCC cable that costs $19.95.  It makes the X1 sound more punchy in the bass department and better extension on the treble.  I think it'll sound better on the bassier headphones so might not be the best match with the 90's.  Something like the Zu cable might be a better match.  I am really interested in the 8 core version and will ask the seller if they will make one with a mini to mini in 1.2 meter.

If my Carbo Bassos didn't have driver flex I wouldn't really have a reason to upgrade, but it annoys me because one side goes quiet when the driver flexes until it sorts itself out.

post #13932 of 32862

The Tenore's have very minor driver flex, the NE700's have none with similar tuning and the S2 has no driver flex.  

post #13933 of 32862

Went for the cables DS linked to, 6 core, looks like a few weeks until they get here (the joys of buying from China), will let you all know what I think when they come.

 

As to the DS comments on the thread, I love it (as many have noted, my bank account feels otherwise), been great fun reading about and checking out the headphone related gear, been a blast, thanks all :beerchug:

$60 for the Monster Gratutude on Amazon, no, they aren't the Miles Davis or Coppers, made of plastic, strange shape/fit, do sound nice, though...

Have to admit, though, I'm not sensitive to driver flex.

Getting back to the heavy metal talk, I found a CD of Black Sabbath Paranoid sitting around collecting dust, will import to itunes, send to my Touch, listen later...
