The AKG K545 The black ones are what I got..Basically these are an upgrade to the Onkyo ES-HF300 in sound..Both have a somewhat U shape sound with lovely bass but the AKG wins out in sheer space..These cans for being portable closed cans have some of the best stage I have heard..It is shockingly out of the cups. I just did an AB to confirm what I initially thought..Both have a really tight clean sound but the stage on these cans just wins out right over the Onkyos.

 

These things sell for $200 on razerdog..Already garnering a fan base for these..If you guys want a solid can for around $200..I wouldn't hesitate to try one..I was somewhat worried about these cans as I read they are like the K550s with bass but to my ears anyway they are easy to drive. Easy on the eyes. Solid detail and resolution..excellent imagery..Comfort with good build..Techincal yet musical. The sub bass is strong with this one with enough mid bass to have that impact you want out of your EDM yet detailed enough to enjoy a jazz quartet in full swing.. Extremely versatile tuning for guys that enjoy more than a few genres of music..I have them on now as I am listening to my DX50..A great portable can from AKG..

 

 

Awesome Ds! I've had my eyes on those for a while, so it's great to see that you think that they deserve their hype! :)

Ya I kinda wish I got these orange ones. But the black ones are clean looking. They sound as good as they look actually. Maybe even better. In any case. I thought I would bring these up here for guys that are looking for something real nice and portable for the cash. A absolute solid buy for certain..It comes with 2 detachable cords and the cups are big enough to be fully over the ears for most. Unless you got large flappy ears...

 

Oh ya think GR07 BE edition on a 50mm driver=AKG K545s with about 2X the headstage and depth and you might get a good idea.

Is that frame plastic, metal, or metal wrapped in plastic?


The band is a solid piece of metal with thick plastic the cup holders are metal with plastic. Build on these are excellent. They look like they can take a beating..

^ Thanks for the tip, cut up a piece of earbud foam to cover the grill opening and the tips holds them in place perfectly!!! But it seems it does help a tiny tiny bit in reducing brightness but the treble on my Nokia N9 is still a lil' peaky due to the onboard dac/amp so...... can't really help it while these DN1Ks sounds PERFECT on my Audinst HUD-MX1 DAC/amp desktop setup cuz it's MUCH more neutral in sonics/ presentation.

The martins and re700s are similar to each others signature. They're both clear, detailed, but they are somewhat different.

 

The martins are a touch clearer than the re700s.

 

The highs are pretty detailed, have a nice texture like the re700s. The ones on the re700s are more engaging and detailed, and also more lifelike. The highs are similar though, but I give the one up to the re700s.

 

I'll compare it with more details, right now these are my impressions.

 

The mids have a good detail...similar to the re700s. I feel, though, that the re700's mids were better as they sounded clearer in some ways. I can't put my finger on it just yet.

 

The low quantity of the re700s beat the martins by a good amount.


The quality are similar to each other, but the quantity and quality of the re700s beat the quantity and the quality of the martins.

 

the re700's have 2 more dbs of bass quantity, yet still keep the same quantity of the martins, and have more thickness to them.

 

Martins are definitely worth their $100. As the re700s are worth their $150. Surprisingly, the re700s surprised me out of box, the martins did as well, but not to the effect as the re700s.

The martin logans do string instruments justice, I can definitely hear the strumming detail a bit better on them, and the clarity that comes from the strings of the guitar are phenomenal. I hear them in person, as if the player was there in front of me, but the re700s do it good as well, since it has a thicker, warmer sound to the strings. I'd like to say that the tonal balance on both are on par. The guitars are lifelike, just trying to impress all the listeners out there.

 

I'd give them this amount of clarity

 

Instrument clarity + Detail

 

Martin logans >> re700s

 

......

 

Vocal quality

 

Re700s>>Martin logans

 

Bass quantity wise, the re700s wins against logans, but also have that tight bass like the logans.

 

Re700s>=Logans

 

........

 

Cymbals, treble

Logans>=Re700s

 

 

.....

Both headphones can compete, I'm amazed, simply amazed. 

 

The martins do leave the re700s in the dust at the string department though.

 While I believe I was the first to mention the MLs on the Discovery thread, I've never said they are the second coming... I like them a lot, but, vlenbo said in his quick impression, I found them to have great bass quality, but less than I'd like in quantity. I even did a review of 4 on ear phones, ML, Sennheiser Amperiors, Bayer 1350, Yamaha HPH - 200, (about 1-2 months ago, probably 1000 pages back, can link to it when I get home if anyone would like). I rated the Amperiors first, had the Yamaha and ML 2 nd, 1350 last, the issue being bass. I still feel this is some kind of fit issue, as happens work iems, and I keep trying to get them optimized for bass. There are some times they're amazing... Other times I keep fidgeting with them, getting to get the magic back

^ And you wonder why you didn't get much interest on them doc, cuz you need to HYPE the hell outta' them like that Father Pata Papa dood is durrr!!! :deadhorse:

 

Thanks for the great initial impressions on those Logans vlenbo, sounds VERY promising. Looking to hear these myself next week when i get them in. HYPED!!! :popcorn:

^ BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! That was suppose to be my stealth black set. :angry_face: Was waiting for them to drop a bit mo' in price then going in....... :ph34r:

 

BUT that was before i got the Logans though, everyone seems to say that these K545s are like the Canned version of the gr07 BEs so they should sound great and is a solid buy, but a bit too safe gamble it seems. Those Logans for their lower price tag is mo' troll worthy. :ksc75smile:

^ Yeppp AKG seems to be pretty schiity regarding QC of late esp. for their more "portable" consumer lineups and if it is cheap plastic like their TIESTO line then oh boi it's gonna sucking crack!!!

 

AKG needs to get their schiit together tbh.

The re700s will remedy your bass issue, while having the details that the martin logans provide, at least most of it.

 

Like I stated, the crispiness and detail runs back 2 steps, or 2 db behind the martins, but to make up for it, it's thicker sounding and still has quite a lot of detail, more than the es700s, and since you put the yamahas second, these will beat the yamahas for sure (going by dsnuts' comparison to the es700s and yamahas) You've got to try the ath-re700 sometime, if you like, maybe there's a headphone you can sell....

 

to me!

Goodness, those look beautiful! I wish I got these before, and have mentioned how beautiful they looked, but the orange color gives it a better look.

 

You should try the re700s, I know you'd like them very much as they debunk the es700s by a good amount. :bigsmile_face: More bass than it, better vocals, great treble.

They are promising, I'd say you pulled the trigger at the right target here.

 

But you still missed the re700s by a good foot. :p If you don't buy the re700s later on, you'll regret not hearing this awesome bass and vocals I'm hearing, along with the treble, imagery, and soundstage that is a bit improved over the es700s.

Why? Because the H3 and AS-2 are covering all the bases (for the most part) that I love about the Cardas, and I'm interested in going to a very high-end headphone now (I won't say which one just yet). I'm still debating this in my head though, because I really love the Cardas (sound, build, everything). We'll see. I have to many earphones and headphones now. Time to narrow down to a precious few. Might sell the Pistons and MHC1 too in some type of package deal.


If you are going for a high end IEM, you might take a look at the Nuforce Primo 8 using their own proprietary balanced BA drivers and a patented phase coherence crossover. I have listen to speaker that are time and phase speakers such very natural and real and spooky imaging. If Nuforce can really manage to combine the best quality of BA driver and dynamic driver, that would be one awsome IEM.

 

I have a quick question for you. Do you think the pad on On1 can be replaceable with an overear pad maybe?

Hmm? That I don't know. The on-ear pad is almost over ear in feel though. I'm not sure. I'll have to ask the creator that question. I find them comfortable as is though. Yeah, not really interested in multi-BA earphones anymore (until I buy the eight drivers one from 1964 EARS), but I will pay more attention to the Primo.

If you do ask the creator, please me keep in touch. Is it the pad pretty easy to take out?
I'm looking for a little isolation as a portable at the same time. Have you listen to the ATH-ES-700 or WS-99 before? If so, which sounds more natural and have a bigger soundstage? I'm debating either the On1 and RE-700 headphone for a closed portable headphone after reading yours and vlenbo's impression. Thanks.
