The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 895

Thread Starter 

Bassier yes. Sfs. Corecools without his tape mod is crazy. Too much bass believe it or not. Controlled it aint. But probably the bassiest earphones I have ever heard in stock configuration. Then there is the Philips SHE9750.. The bassiest philips earphones on the cheap. But a bit of a warning. These also happens to be the worst sounding Philips earphones.

These look kinda cool but don't let that clear silicone covered housing fool you. You will get nastiness,ie your hamburger smudge, ear wax sweat, unnatural oils, fungus and other growing bacterial, all over the housing as it is made of SILICONE!. Do not mistake these for an upgrade to the SHE9700. Nope. Nothing says your hifi like having a ginormous mid bass hump and absolutely no venting in the housing to retain all that resonance. So this is how it sounds if you sealed your buddies Honda with them nasty subs with all the windows up. Highs? Mids? There is none. It is all about knocking out that bit of earwax and getting a nice headache doing it. What was philips thinking in making these? I have no idea.

 

Maybe they wanted to reproduce ATs PRo700Mk2s. Which also sound very similar.

Dark dank and musty, with a thick bass note and what seems to be highs and mids that float somewhere in the sound. Somewhere in there you will not hear any type of precision or micro details. Actually there are some. It is from the headphones clamping your head so hard. You will be able to hear your veins pop on your forehead.. Nothing says hi fi like getting an aneurysm while getting your head pounded in with dank bass.

 

 

A little update on the Onkyos. So it seems the 3rd party vendor we bought the earphones from actually sold us the earphones without actually getting them in stock. How nice. This is the reason why I don't have them in my ears. I hope early next week.

Is it me or new ne-700x are falling behind mh1c?? After 50h burning 700x mh1c still sounds more natural and opend and easier to setup/drive (bass noticable better on mh1c for me) then 700x... It looks like the search for upgrade on mh1c is not over for me rolleyes.gif

Wow, as generally happens, I went on vacation for a week, poor wifi there, now have a kazillion pages to catch up with! :-\ I ordered X3 on site-that-can't-be-mentioned, can't wait to get it. My Studio Anniversary V3 seems have died, seems like a good one to go to next

Super Duper GEEK sounds good to me.

I saw the update #7 email as well. The super duper geek intrigues me but I'm not sure I'm willing to pay the $60 more for the upgrade. If however anyone on here got in at the $119 bracket or lower and is willing to order another one for me (I'd paypal you the cost as well as cover shipping from you to me once you receive them) then I'd gladly update to super duper. Please PM me if anyone is willing to do this :)

Man... having doubts whether or not GEEK would be ok for powering high impedance headphones just in case I want a HD650 or HE-400 or something down the line.
I know it could potentially be great for the X1 but other more powerful headphones? Not sure...

Pretty sure the Super Duper upgrade with it's 1000mW would be enough to drive even heavy weight Headphones. I use them for stuff like portable gear so I think I'll go with the super and not the Maxed out upgrade.

Oh wow, problems are solved. I know that 1000mW is pretty huge for a portable amp but is it enough drive HD650/HE-400 to full potential?

Btw, there is another single $139 slot open for the geek, so someone might grab it if you hurry

I believe the HE-400 require 500mW to 1W to perform well, iirc. So yes, if the Geek does what it says, then driving them should be no problem.

From a plugged-in source, of course, I don't think a mobile's battery will last more than a few short hours.
