Well just waiting on the "portworld" ebay person to respond, because I cant buy it because he won't ship to New Zealand, as of yet...

Will try buy them tomorrow!

I have spent some time listening to my Somic's, "Dire Straits", "Brothers in Arms", SACD from my Denon 4010, stereo layer, absolutely stunning on these headphones.....I wish others could experience what I am hearing from these $44 headphones, Shure 840 pads......it doesn't get any better than this.  Although I set up and A/B comparison with my computer, V-Link, Audio GD NFB2 DAC, tube amp, same tube amp fed by the Denon.  I can tell the difference from the SACD playing, but with my Audiophile settings in jRiver MC 18, they are sounding very close.  But the SACD/Denon output wins!  Just a huge soundstage and quality natural sound both ways with the Somic's..........

 

Good find Cash!  I will have my Sennheiser HD600's tommorrow, and I can compare to the Somic's next week!

I have spent some time listening to my ad900x's, "Dire Straits", "Brothers in Arms", 320mbps from my laptop + ele dac, absolutely stunning on these headphones.....I wish others could experience what I am hearing from these $200 headphones,

 

Kidding cute! Well, not really. These ad900x's sound this good right out of the box with no burn in, and they should only get better? I'm one happy camper! biggrin.gif

So is the general consensus the AD900X is a big step forward from the AD900 in terms of sound quality?
How about the build quality?

I don't know too many guys that owned the previous AD900 and bought a AD900X to compare but from what I understand the newer drivers in the AD900X actually now has bass where before that was what was lacking on the AD900. This was the case for the older A900 vs the A900X as well.. Now the sound is complete more than lacking in that area. The new AD900X certainly look a lot better that is for sure. Love the way the new ones look. I think the padding is also an improvement over the older one as well.

 

Glad you finally got them Wayne. You end up paying any fees?

Glad you finally got them....maybe my gears revealed too much with the AD900X, versus others that are using less resolving source.  The soundstage was great, but violins, pianos, acoustic bass, some guitars just sounded washed out and artificial to my ears.  The Somic's with the Shure 840 pads, have just as big soundstage, with more texture, and meat to the notes.  Couldn't believe that happened.....maybe I had a defective pair.....lol!  I got my $240 back and have Sennheiser HD600's coming tommorrow with............you guessed it......replaceable cables for my devious mind.  Don't you have Somic's ordered?  They took me by suprise......killed my cute S500's!  320mbps mp3, not even close, all my computer music is wav, but SACD from the Denon is in another league altogether. Burr Brown PCM 1796 DAC's with AL24 processing!

^ Ok cute don't act like you didn't see my post, you know what's up!

I WANT IN DETAIL YOUR FULL MOD NOW, for these Somic MTs! Pretty please? So you didn't add any extra cables, etc to the MTs just has the Shure pads on them??? If so, MIND = OFFICIALLY BLOWN!

 


edit: and congrats WAYNE on those ATH ADs, glad you are lovin' them. Can't wait for more impressions from you esp. regarding the bass department. Oh man the Somic MH463s i just got are some good @ss sh!t as well. Sounds like a bigger/ a bit more refined version of the MH1Cs that has crazy amount of transparency. The bass is satisfactory even for this closeted basshead! biggrin.gif More to come on these MH463s later.

Wasn't a snow storm.....three days of freezing rain Sun, Mon, Tues....then two days of below zero highs!  Like a skating rink here, and I live in the boonies.  Bring your hock skates and come to my house...lol!

 

Simple, with the Somic's, 100hrs of burn in to tame them a little, and Shure 840 pads......killed my fun with the S500's......caused me to sell my AD900X, after four days of trying to like them, the AD900X, smooth and laid back with a huge soundstage.....I was expecting more layering, texture and better tone, the thin sound of the AD900X would not be for you SF, more like what you heard on the S500 with just the HM5 pads, but I think you would really like the Somic's, $44 shipped on ebay right now!  What are you waiting for?

I'm loving my MH463s too. They give me the sparkle that the m80s lacked and the bass can definitely kick when the song requires it. Did you get them with the turtle beach ear pads or using them stock?

I don't believe my eyes, can this be? Cute is happy and is completely satisfied with a set of cans with almost stock everything?!!! eek.gif My god didn't even feel the need to re-cable it and it's already giving such high praises, cute of all people. Man these somics are some tricky mofos!

 

Don't worry, i'll get them eventually, but for now i will enjoy my fully open back Somic MH463s 1st, maybe you should give them a go as well since cute is officially a somic fan boi, i mean spokes person.

You got those MH463s as well, nice. Oh forgot to mention that the set that i ordered from ebay came with turtle beach pads, thank god. Cuz the original pads looks/ feels so crappy that i haven't even tired to use it yet. The turtle beach pads makes them look a lot more classy/ premium, seems like it was made for these MH463s.  So props to Cash and his mother for these wonderful turtle beach pads!!! LoL

 

Yeppp, they out class the m80s for sure from what i remembered during my long audition in Radio Shack. The bass end with the turtle beach pads is pretty lovely, but it doesn't grab you by the b@lls like my HM5 modded S500s does. LoL The sound signature on my S500s is much more intimate while these MH463s are lets just say more "transparent" due to the bigger soundstage. But damn the bass shakes the cups of these things cuz it's fully open. LMAO Was like the F, the cups are rattling around my ears, literally.  L3000.gif

I'm not going to post too many impressions until I get some more hours on the ad900x's, but the only thing that I might have been concerned about with them (before getting them) would have been insufficient low end. But no way. I am listening to some of this stuff edm right now, and I am getting hit with plenty of awesome bass and fullness from these puppies.

hi everyone, long time lurker first time poster

 

i want to buy my first pair of headphones and i'm deciding between the jvc ha s500s and the somic efi82mts. how much does the sound leak on the somics? i will be using these headphones primarily in the office and i don't really want people to hear noise coming from my headphones. it sounds like from the few people who have both of these headphones the preference is for the somics. thanks in advance for any advice.

 

also credit to this thread for turning me on to the sony mh1c's.

If you don't have the original Somic's how are you going to compare to the MH463.'s, what pads are on them, stock?
