They are pretty good huh! I really love the mids on them. Great for vocals. I love mine with the E12 amp (tightens up the imaging and provides a nice amount of bass), and they are my TV/Movie headphones since they have that huge soundstage and because they are so comfortable.

 

Having said that...

(For reference, that's the AD1000PRM in my picture.)


^ LoL it's just the lowly ATH AD900X. Got them in for an audition but was surprised how much i like them, cuz they make A LOT more sense to me that the Philips X1s tbh. Even though these are fully open back the bass quantity and quality is damn nice. Even this semi-bass head is impressed cuz it sounds just right within the overall scheme of things. It has great tight presence yet never over done, so it's just full/ bassy enough to not get in the way of the crazy airy and detailed presentation. Love the BIG staging of these, cuz the smaller staging of the semi-open back X1s didn't really impressed me all that much.

 

These AD900Xs kinda sound like a mixture of all the positive attributes of micro CNT drivers such as the CNK70s  and BA drivers fused into one sound BUT IT'S BLOWN WAYYYYYY UP in soundstaging/ air. My noob @ss likey!!! :gs1000smile:

OK, figured out the Go-Dap issues, I'm using an iPod touch, smaller than the iPhone and fit is off. A bit of tissue paper seems to fix the problem. Not bad sounding...not as good as my National, but for a few bucks, easy and does nicely, probably needs some break in as well. Listening to Senn Amperiors through touch/Go-Dap, Aimee Mann, really nice. For $15, if you use an i-device that goes wtih it, I'd say it's more than worth while.

Next up, really nice, old sounding tune, Gregory Porter

Mmmm. Yea, I can see that. I haven't heard the HF5 lol, but the 4S was shockingly dense sounding. Not really too cool, but definitely not warm. This Fostex sounds more interesting by the day.

^ WHAT A NOOB ON ALL FRONTS!!! You gotta' charge the thing fully 1st before you use it doc, cuz they are pretty old stock. Not the most powerful but gets the job done for most portable sources, can even drive the Philips X1s and can more than enough drive the AD900Xs. haha It is clean, punchy and pretty transparent and i like this cheapo Go-Dap much more than my FiiO E17 connected via my Sansa Clip+, cuz the FiiO sounds too warm and not lively enough for me.

 

SMH on the ripped pads. LMAO BE GENTLE DOC SHEEEESH!!! :triportsad:

post #21861 of 32875
OK, sure I know needs to be charged (and I did for 3-4 hours, then got impatient and wanted to try it), also realize it may need some break in, is on the bright side now, but the fit was the issue...sure, I'm a noob, what can I tell you.
Interesting thing happened, though...never expected this, but it seems to have a really nice synergy with the Mikros 90. I'm the chronic "too little bass" complainer with the ML phones, listened with the X3, X3 into ALO National, iPod touch, and iPod touch into National, pretty much same results. Now, I'd think the National and the X3 are "better" amps than the Go Dap, but you know what? The BASS IS BACK!!! Don't get it, but somehow it is able to get a hold of the ML bottom end (I know...) and present that low end with authority! Still sounds bright (the Go-Dap), somewhat rough, but I'm actually impressed on this.

As far as the pads, this explains why you'll never find me on DIY threads smily_headphones1.gif

FOW sounding good on the iPod/Go-Dap/Mikros combo as I type

^ Doc go check the Logans thread for my last post on that cheapo beats aftermarket for like $2.40 - $4 bring the bass quantity and quality of these Logans to almost ATH WS99-Lite levels, much better than that softer bass of the ES700s and much more full with good weight and texture now. WOW!!!  Most musical and fun i have heard these Logans, they are now truly portable viable. :cool:

And this is off of my Venturecraft amp hooked onto my nano why of course. :basshead:

Interesting. But I think I'm still going to wait for the prive to go down unless more people say they think it's better than the 90. I am interested in what you like about the 90s since the te-05 seems to just be an improved 90.

Both I love equally 😎 ...one for home and one on the move that's the difference 😊

I'm actually curious to see how close the AD900X is to the AD1000PRM. I'll have to give the AS900X a listen sometime. :D

LOL I was actually considering just buying a used pair of AD900X and comparing them. The owner of these (The PRM stands for Premium btw :tongue:) said they don't sound anything alike though unfortunately.

But why not just use the te-05 at home? Sorry if I'm asking so many questions, but I'm just really curious because the 90s sound amazing to me, and they keep sounding beter and better to me. So, if these are an upgrade I may have to reevaluate some things and get 'em. I mean, I did just spend the cost of the te-5s on two pairs of 90s.

^ Welp i don't knoe about the "Premiums" but a_recording did review of the higher end ADX model of the same series and said they the mo' expensive models is fo' sho' worth it and sounds pretty different as well, but not EXTREMELY so or something along those lines. So it isn't really surprising that the PRMs is different from these lowly AD900Xs cuz they are made to cater to us budget-fi peons afterall. : P
