LOL ! ...this thread is really living up to it's hype, I amazed how fast it went from AD900X to Somic EFi 82.
Speaking of which ....nobody tried the NIA 8801, I mentioned earlier ? (refer post 5339)
the only place I can find them at now is Ebay-Germany and they have gone up in price locally.
If the Somics are chinese Ripoffs ...startups of Sony, then the NIA are the equivalent of PHILIPS
Warning: If you're considering between the AD900X and NIA 8801 (Click to show)
The NIA 8801 are miles behind when compared to the AD900X
I had these for a while now. Been so busy with the FXZ earphones and the AD900X. I completely forgot to mention. These $20 cans are actually very good headphones. Here is the surprising thing about these little portable cans. Just like Ghost mentioned. The sound is actually correct on them for one but beyond that. These would make simply awesome gifts for loved ones. Why? It has a built in MP3 player in the cup. Throw in a 32 gig chip and your listening to your favorites with no wires for days. The FM radio works well too. A very unique and nice find from Ghost. These headphones for $20 I think is a great price for what they do. Very surprised how good these little cans are. Good one Ghost.
Should !!! ...they deserve a separate thread from the AD2000X thread. Count me in as No 1 Fan.
I won't add anymore to what has already been said about them AD900X but I will just say this:
Off all the recommendations of audio gears you have given and I ultimately ended up buying, this has got to be the one I am MOST grateful for !!!
Granted not everybody will be getting one as it is not exactly in the cheapo price bracket but for what I've paid and what I'm getting in return, I truely thanks you for mentioning it during our little chat.
.... the problem is that there is now NO GOING BACK !
I am glad these have caught your fancy my friend.. The AD900X continues to amaze. I have them on as I type. I think the greatest aspect of these cans it their ability to get you involved with the performance your listening to. These cans out of all the cans I own does this in a way that is hard to not absolutely fall for.
I know you guys know me for many budget friendly stuff that sounds good to us. Sometimes a discovery comes in a way that is unexpected. I knew these AD900X cans would perform but to what extent they do I had no idea. I do own the brother of these the A900X so I had an idea of how these would sound. But the reality is what this open back does for this sound is something that is truly exceptional. That live recording and concert like sound is all of a sudden a reality like nothing I have ever heard before. Sure these are not budget.. These cost more but you guys will never guess the sound level we are talking about here in these $200 cans..Ghost myself and Danny can describe all day long what makes these cans special to us but it is one of those cans. You have to hear for yourself to fully appreciate.
This year has taken off like a rocket for discovery and that is only a good thing for all of us. I truly hope these Somic cans are something worth us franticly clicking to buy. Their price to performance ratio seems to be much more in line with what this thread is about but just because the AD900X is more of a spendy phone does not mean it does not belong on this thread. This type of sound is what I consider a real discovery. If you guys have never heard ATs version of an open sound these will be worth every penny you pay for them. Not to mention if you game. You will not find a better gaming can..I consider all you guys as friends and friends don't let friends buy crap. The opposite. I pretty much insisted Ghost and Danny get these. Happy listening fellas. Here is to new and excellent discoveries.
