I had the Scorsch hybrid, and it sucked. The T-PEOS was slightly worse, but the BA driver in the Scorsch was badly tuned. Joker dismissed the Audiofly, and I trust his opinion. I've never heard any DUNU, so I'm excited to get my DN-1000. Never heard any Sony hybrids either, but they tend to be quite expensive. Astrotec came very close for me, but reviews were so-so, so I went with DUNU.

QC wasn't the issue for me, the terrible ergonomics were

You can't be speaking about the H200's - they don't have recessed mids. In fact, I think the H200's are awesome.

No, because the 200 is a dual BA/single dynamic driver hybrid. i'm talking about single/single.

     Hey guys, don't mean to knock over the thread's train here, but I just want to post a 'discovery' of sorts. It seems Razer's really looking to enter the headphone game now, and I don't approve of it.

     We all know that Razer is a respected brand in gaming peripherals and the like, right? Turns out, they're great at it -- and I respect them for that. But they, too, were another of the many brands with their names making most of the price, not unlike another very respected peripheral brand (*cough* Logitech). Razer made mice, keyboards, controllers, laptops (Razer Blade), tablets, even mouse pads. All of them bore the Razer name, and all was pretty well. They were a pretty modest company before they started getting more and more famous, but that wasn't much to go ranting about.

     Then they made headphones, with pretty mediocre sound. Of course, what they made were gaming headphones, and they performed pretty well in that respect. However, that was until only quite recently, when they released the Kraken Forged Edition. The Razer Krakens now come in 4 variations, with the Forged being the latest. The problem was with how they priced it -- Razer marketed it as being "forged for sonic perfection." That's where they went wrong. Priced at a jaw-dropping $400, the Forged is said to have "custom-tuned drivers" which sound exactly the same as the Kraken Pros that I have sitting on a stand somewhere in my room. The same performance from a $60 headphone (the original Kraken), remade into a $400 monstrosity which doesn't even look as nice as Beats.

     Now, they're serious about entering the headphonegame with its ultra-new Adaro line. Now Razer has really lost me.

I actually like the green cord. The Adaros aren't out yet, though. At least, based on what I saw earlier.

^ LoL it looks like some cheapo Chinese $50 cans to me sorry. Guess they wanna milk the headphone market since it is getting really hot/ lucrative.

 

But..... like you stated their previous track record has been anything but stellar so.....

Sold my UE TF10, and with the savings, I was also able to pick up the Audio Technica IM70 as well, for the same price as it would have cost for either the H3 or AX-60. Since most of you told me the technical jump wasn't so high from the Dunu to either the other more expensive choices, then it made sense to go with the Dunu. Looking forward to getting both of them in, and seeing for myself what the fuss is all about? darthsmile.gif  

I'm really looking forward to a comparison between the OM Audio, IM70 and DN1000 smily_headphones1.gif

   No need to be sorry. Now that I think about it, I actually agree with you on that point. At $50,bhazard might actually know a couple of good sounding headphones. I might ask him if I have the time. Still, I would like to commend Razer for their Blade and Blade Pro, which are actually really nice laptops. Honestly, if given the choice, I would take Razer over the Alienware brand of laptops, which seem to carry a little more name to them than necessary.

   Also, I would like to pitch in a new discovery. I was really interested in that one guy who commended Samsung's dual BA that bundled with the GS4. Of course, I didn't get the earphones, but I tried the earphones that came with my mom's Note 2 instead. Okay, I was just 'borrowing' them ;); besides, she doesn't use them (she uses my sister's EarPods, which kinda ticks her off).  But anyway, so I tried it only a while earlier while she was out (sneaky ol' me), bringing along some tips which I had. I tried its stock tips, sounded really hollow without any bass. I took them out and tried some really stout double-flanged tips. There was an improved seal, and the bass was brought to life. But it wasn't until I tried the Pistons' tips.

   Result? It sounded oustanding.

   I don't know how you guys wanna put it, but it sounded really good. Clarity was exceptional, though it could use a little work. The bass was a little more boomy than punchy, but it was slightly thinner than that of the Pistons. For bundle earphones, I was blown away. All I need left are extra tips, and I might be able to give my sis the chance to listen to her EarPods again.

Do you have Piston 1.0 or 2.0? I just can't get into the Samsung HS-330. They are a decent pair of earphones for being super el cheapos, but even I have my limits, and the recessed mids and quirky bass just isn't for me. Still looking for a trade too.

     No offense, but did you not get to read my review? They were the new ones, and I don't have the old ones (sadly). I really want to get them for comparison though. So, doing a quick Googling, the HS-330 were the dual BAs that came with the S4, were they not?

Seems to me like you're judging these before they've even come out. My experience with razer is that they make high quality peripherals but price them too steeply. It's true that they market their headphones with wild exaggerations of sound quality but then your username is thatBeatsguy so I should think you've come across this before? So far they've been making headphones designed for gaming, and for that purpose they're good enough. They've got the materials and manufacturing down, all it takes for them to make decent headphones geared for music is a different focus in design. I expect they'll be overpriced and over hyped but I'll wait until I've heard them before I take to the internet ranting.
