I am a bit lost on on this mistertao-taobao nexus, is there a FAQ where I can learn about who they are?

That is just like the Tenso service in Japan.

 

I would not have gotten involved in this move (or rather motivated the move) if these Somic headphones did not have the grills.  Put a big size good quality driver and a grill together and you are registered for headphones-fest.

 

Some China sellers use the "Make Offer" option on eBay to end up asking for the "Buy It Now" price when you make the offer.  So, no surprise here.  Maybe they get to pay a lower commission fee to eBay by doing it that way.  Who knows.

 

Big question:  How do we know that the Somic headphones that have been ordered are good equivalents to the ones that CashNotCredit has?  What if they are not?

$10000000 question:

Was it the MT or the Pro?

mistertao is a middleman site and once you order from the chinese seller mistertao receives the package and sends it to you. it's useful coz sites like taobao,tmall etc. usually have lower prices than ebay on chinese items but they don't ship internationally

Somic site has no Mt version at all. The Pro model seems to be the only ones on there.

That's their old website. Note that nothing has been updated there in 3 years.

Here's the new one.

This isn't to say that it sounds horrible without a pad swap, but this change in wearing style really improves them for the better. It's kind of like the HA-S500 in this regard. Awesome stock, but really something else with a pad swap.

The real million dollar question would be are you willing to send these somics off to Ds and Danny for more impressions/ comparos???  I think Alberto/ mine shipping offers still stand cuz everyone seems to be buying the MTs and not the fully open one joe seem to love.

China of course but designed in Japan.  So it does seem the Pro model is actually the older one and looking at the specs I am certain they are using the same drivers on these EFI cans. So I will stick to the pro model and try them out. They should sound the same.

Man!  You are like agent 007 or better than that, you are like Agent 86 when things are working out for him, like in the latter part of every show.  Are you sure you are 16?

What is the difference between the MTs and the PROs?

SHIP THEM AWAY? BUT I'M SO ATTACHED. 

 

I'd love to. Maybe they can ship me the AD900X. And a million dollars. And a car. (Joking about the AD900X, dead serious about the latter two. Given all the money the man has cost me in unnecessary but over-acheiving headphones, Dsnuts can probably be blamed for all of my future financial problems. xD)

I find them to be better than the HA-S500, but I have no idea how cute modded his.

Here's my birth certificate for proof.

MTs are new, ugly, and have ghetto padding, but come with a surprisingly useful 8 foot extension cable and are about $25 cheaper. They, along with the MH463, are Somic's flagship models.

The PROs are less ugly, have better padding, have a coiled cable, and are $25 more.

 

Everything else should be the same, unless they added/removed dampening.

My advice: take the $25 you save from getting the MTs to buy a set of Shure SRH 840 pads and get what should be the best out of the three. Use the change to buy some 8320s or whatever dollar-store IEM Dsnuts recommends next.

Just think of all the money you saved, too...

 

 

 

 

...then remember that this is Head-Fi, so $25 in savings get made up for with $50 of mods.
