I've been enjoying these for the last couple of days and thought I'll share this find with you guys who hate having to deal with messy cables and/or easy to lose DAPs, I've also discovered that NIA makes a version that connects via bluetooth ver:2

 

Whacky find! Thanks for sharing. I look forward to more impressions about them as time goes on.

Construction is pretty much similar as the JVC, that is to say, good quality plasticky build.

does the cable only go on one side and is the s400 bassy?

My main concern with those headphones Ghost is. Hows the sound quality. You say it is better than the HA-S500? That is a great design but what is really important to me and I am sure others is the sound quality.


So something was nagging at me. One of those. I seen that somewhere before nagging. This is a pic of one of those Somic headphones.

The Somic ST-80.

700

AT first I thought. They are copying Pioneer HDJ100s

700

 

But then it looks a bit different. I was just browsing Amazon and Booya. I found it.

The SONY MDR-V55

700

The Chinese never copy stuff.

The price was too low not to experiment with so I took the plunge. (found on Ebay for around $20) 

 

Back of the package, does that looks like the Sonys to you ?

 

The specs as stated on the sides

 

 

Pictures of the headphones - Nicer top padding than the S500

 

Much better stock ear padding than both JVC headphones

 

Much lighter than the S400 even though there's steel re-inforcement in the headband

 

Forward / backward and start / stop multi function dial

 

Charging port and on/off switch

 

Volume and EQ multifunction dial

 

3.5mm jack for those who must have cables, note antenna port for superior FM reception.

Are the mids better than the ha-s500's ath leather pad mod?

also, amazon+tensou > ebay offerings for the fxz series. Granted, you only save 50 dollars, but it is a good save in my opinion.

Now this one I have seen before.

Philips SHL8800?

Here is an original design. I like these EARphones.

You can get some really amazing bookshelf speakers for around $200, so if value is a concern, like if you're a student with $300 a month to live on, then yeah, you don't need all this "DAC/Amp nonsense" and you'll find sound quality in a high-end low-priced speaker.

Thanks for sharing.  I've thought about a MicroSD headphone with a built-in DAC/Amp for a while, but this one took it a step further with DC IN 5V, Aux in and antenna in.  I mean in a sense that is really cool, connecting your head to an electrical outlet, high-end stereo system, or roof antenna.............................

 

NIA is a nice sounding name, except..............

 

 

Is there something the Chinese don't understand, that copying means you don't sell?  Now if they hired a graphic artist for 1 day to make a new NIA logo for them, and put a good DAC in there like ES9023 and increased the price to $70 then they're onto something.

 

 

Anyway ghostfit how does this sound on them on max volume?

You can't see they directly copied the AIWA logo, and that NIA is only a very simple combination of soNY and aiwA?

Especially the Ele dac cus it has some amping going on anyways. Both will have too much volume being driven from computers.

 

I feel the materialistic head-fi urge to buy something. My recent Ele DAC purchase (which I haven't got yet) and my foam tips purchase for the fdx70's has not satiated the urge. I am perilously close to either getting those Somics or the E11. I found the E11 below for a pretty decent Canadian price (not sure if it comes with the 3.5mm cable or not though):

http://www.headphonebar.com/fiio-e11-kilimanjaro/?revpage=2#reviews

 

Not quite sure yet if I really need it or not (and it bugs me a bit that you can't listen to it while charging). I would envision using it in a mobile fashion with my SGS2 or my clip zip, but do I really want another gadget to contend with? The phone is nicely in it's holster on my belt, as is my clip zip. How does one also contend with the E11 gizmo? Could be potentially annoying. Then again, maybe I would fall in love with it and think it's the best gadget since the bread slicer.

 

Oh well, I think I've managed to control the impulse for another day lol!

^ LoL, WAYNE caught the spending bug, "Welcome to head-fi, sorry about your wallet!!!" Get the Somics forget about the stupid amp, nuff said. haha

Your cheapo Ele is going to sound real nice and since you don't have an open headphone it makes more sense to get the Somic more. Just my 2 cents................ but it is up to you to pick which purchase button to click. biggrin.gif

If you are going to get a FiiO amp, replace the stock cable with this one:

It will sound much better with this Canare cable.

Your 2 cents make a lot of sense actually thanks! The Ele I'm sure will blow my auditory mind, and now that I got my laptop situated on my desk nicely, I'll probably end up listening to tune from it (and the Ele) quite a bit. And as far as mobile goes, the S500 (and xba3 and fdx70) sound awesome on my clip zip or sgs2. This is all pretty much what dsnuts was trying to tell me I think. So c'mon man, what was I thinking lol! Thanks again sf!

Thanks Alberto. I'll keep that in mind for when the E11 possesses me again :)
