I'd second the AT 1K, with the caveat that they need a good source, maybe extra power to drive, and fit for some may be an issue

the sq is what is most amazing. different than the x1 and maybe clearer.  but the software sucks
and must be constatly renavigated to play what you want.  but all in all worth the trouble and 
a keeper....
Thanks, may think about these, waiting to see how things go on the A & K...

It would appear to be notched in the left side. Now for the dumb question is that front or back?

It's still not quite clear. Hmm.

 

Front or back of the cups? Of the tubes?

You need to look in this area.

 

does the driver sit on the facing side here or on the other side of the fibreglass pink?

The notch is on the front so its front to back

Which of the 3 fits the bill. Thanks again smily_headphones1.gif

Unfortunately I'm so busy right now, mochill, that I will not have time to do any in-depth comparisons (I haven't even had time to listen to the R3 but once and I have to seen it on its way by the end of the week).

 

So if you want great bass and super refinement in sound>>> M-200

 

If you want a great wide soundstage, deep penetrating bass (actually probably more than the M-200 but not the same quality, but not too far behind), and that wonderful hybrid earphone sound >>>>> DN-1000. Really a beautiful sound IEM as it burns in more ...

 

 

Again I haven't heard the R3 enough, but from what I've heard and seen, it needs more development. Very good start. though.

I've already done it dude. Check back a few pages here or look on the DN-1K site. Do a search of my posts.

I never thought I would be interested in an over-$1K custom, but that JH Audio Roxanne (12 drivers each side, special four-pin connection, solid carbon fiber shell - not faceplate, and adjustable bass) has me thinking about saving some duckets. Amost $2K though with the solid carbon fiber body.

OK, once again not a "discovery" in the sense that it is a brand new product, but just picked up the Pioneer HDJ-2000 after seeing a post in the Deals Thread (on Sale Best Buy, $140, about half price), listened in store, really liked them in the short listen through the stores listening station. Will give it some play at home, write some more, but had nice, open sound (for closed phones), good detail, and really comfortable (and I often find comfort the biggest issue with over ear phones). More later...

I think Dsnuts said that the ma750i and the m-200 are on the same level. Do you not feel the same?

Did some listening to the Pioneers...Pioneer doesn't get much respect in Audiophile quarters, wouldn't think twice about them myself but read about the sale, looked at the (small number of) Head-Fi reviews, seemed to have made a good impression on the few that heard them. So far, no burn in, out of the box...nice clear mids, good detail (but not the sort that jumps out, have to listen for it, and it's there), good highs but not tizzy, bass good, tuneful, maybe slightly flabby but carries rhythm, stage not wide, maybe slightly beyond ears (but typical for closed phones, from what I understand). As I see it, you can get a great headphone discovery that hits way above its price point, or you can get a great deal on headphones selling for much less than their original price point. I seem to go for the latter mostly.

Have the MA750i, put them down for a bit, still need to play with tips to get them just right, listen some more soon. Don't have the m-200, though. MA750i, from my initial impressions, is a nice, open sounding iem...more later

Those pioneers sound like a good deal there Doc! That's the problem with this hobby... there are new awesome discoveries that provide great "bang for buck", and then there's gear that has been out for a while for which the prices get lowered, and they become great "bang for buck" items. That's when they ALL become hard to resist! And you know you're really in trouble when you start getting into awesome 35 year old headphones! (Damn you nick n! :)

Pioneer sound is old school. Been around for a long time. One of the best Dj cans in the world is the HDJ2000..Those used to sell for around $300 plus. So that is a deal for them. They should be very comparable to the M100s in sound and build. I owned the little brother the HDJ500.. The phones are nothing too special but had some serious bass for on ear headphones.. Trance was crazy on them cans.. That deal at Best buy is indeed a great deal. I kinda want to try out the newer HDJ-1500 myself. Good looking cans.

 

 

 

@Kzombie. I don't think the MA750 are quite at the level of the M200..They have way better ergonomics and usability but sound wise the M200 and that big housing is a nice higher end sound. The MA750 however for the cost is excellent. I have been using them non stop since I got them. These are gonna last in my stable of phones..
