Seems like they are meant to be budget alternatives to the S1/S2 because the street prices on both are quite low (TX1 ~$30, TX2 ~$40 on eBay).

That's what I'm expecting since Philips has already proven that you can get great sound at budget prices like the SHE 3580 among others. Really hoping they pull this off.

Maybe a good deal at those low prices, I know I'm outside the consensus on this, never loved S2, has that open headphone lack of body to instruments, find that true with many (not all) open phones, some "bleaching" of loss of tone color, instrumental texture. It's a trade off (like most things), get open, wide soundstage with open phones, better than most closed, often lose in tone color, I would give up the soundstaging for the richer tone color (also generally like the isolation, both from outside, and others hearing what I'm listening to. Makes for problems when you listen going to sleep if your partner has to listen too...)

Hi guys, my Noble 4 review is up:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/694003/d-marc0s-journal-my-head-fi-journey-new-noble-4-review/270

 

For those looking for a neutral sounding IEM but just couldn't get comfort in the ER4s, this is a good alternative.

Wait, ain't the Noble 4 a CIEM? Oh wait, there's a uni...which was the one used for review. I h8 my memory nowadays.

Still really well-written as always. You always nail the details there. Great work D Marc0! 

 

Still, I think I'll pass up on this one. I've always been more comfortable with on and over-ears despite me not having fit issues. I guess it's just my preference. Right now, I'm just waiting, hoping that I might get the K701 or the X1 and hopefully reach endgame.

Nice impressions on those mu1s, makes me want the mu2s now! 

 

Oh well, at least your doppio hype is going well, I always wanted to get it, but those fostex might be a first if they hit $100.

Hks really good with rock, reggae, etc.  bass makes them have impact, and voices clear!  MU1S more alive and brighter

more sparkle.  Hk sound like ol rock jbl monitors, a sound that i love from live concerts.  not so much detail as mu1s but

pleasing to ears brain and body.  

 

unless you need noise canceling mu1s have same sound and are lighter.

and 100 cheaper.

 

doppios are no hype vienbo, they are most satisfying musical experience in my portable sound gear right now.........

they are my new  best audio friend and don't need amping...

ok i guess it is hype, but TRUE HYPE! HA!

right after i posted the above, Thinksound On1 arrived as used very good condition.  Looked like open box, perfect condition,but

must have been burned in cause out of box sang like a canary in a rainforest.  very very impressive, timbre and tone the best of

any of the headphones i mentioned above, integrated sound field, bass present but not overwhelming.  i can see why some of the

reviewers kept their review samples and say they are their go to headphones when possible. delightful, beautiful and

brain and ear pleasing sound.  very musical and emotionally engaging. i started singing along with the songs with my eyes closed

and tapping, high end audio behavior when one is transported to synthesis realms by magic sound quality and tuning...

wow so far.....

Hey Blue, I know you just got some of these phones, but any preferences? (a bit curious, your experience with the HKs seems to differ from mine... Hooked them up for more burn in, check on them again later)

Thanks man!

I almost bought a used k701 but didn't win the auction. It's a mighty fine headphone I reckon. And neutral too!

I hope you get to like them a lot more than pre-burn-in.

 

@Doctorblue

 

Nice!!! I will see how the cls fare with doctor jazz first, then will decide whether to buy the on1s or these cls first before buying a great headphone like the on1s later on!

Oh, you know you want the On1, Just Do It!!!!
As for the HK's, after a 2nd day of burn in they are coming along...vocals sounded congested and distant to me initially, coming in nicely, thanks you. Bass is what Mikros should have been IMO, really nice, pushes things along as it should (yes, does rock well)
Was just in my favorite position (reclining), HK's on listening to HDTracks download of the Grateful Dead's American Beauty, lots of detail, stage wide, vocals getting richer than before, definitely a good buy at discount price, I think it is a good buy even at the price it is "supposed" to sell for (though, by now, you probably get the idea of how I feel about paying list!!!)

didn't walk the dog yet, so I'll just post what I was auditioning burned in HK's with.

If I turn out like this.

 

 

 

I'll thank and hate you at the same time. Since I know the on1s will be worth the money, lol!

 

So at a $100 value at the moment, the Harman kardon cls are a good purchase?

today I'm in love with the on1s.  they just rock and rock some more.  love the tone and wood-vibes and overall sound is

just like i like it, slightly gassy, great impact and rhythm and not so detail oriented, more "musical" than analytical.

they way outperform their price point, especially if you get an open box one from the jungle dealer.warehouse.  

i can't take them off my head actually.  

haven't heard jazz on them yet..

Hmm....decisions decisions, your description of the on1s, like eric's, is not helping me mate.... :(

 

$100 new set of harman kardons. Though I truly want to get that 86.99 one at newegg when they're available..

 

Gosh damn it headfi, you guys are terrible. :D
