The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1085

post #16261 of 26095

I have to comment on the basic premise and use of this thread. It happens to be my favorite here on Head-Fi (with The Deals Thread a close second), but I think there is an underlying problem with the premise. Not that the premise is bad, mind you, but I think it gets misinterpreted (I'm as guilty of this as anyone). The tendency with "Discovery" is to be first, to go where no audiophile has gone before, to get a scoop, as they say in the news business. This is great-it means, though, that a lot of quick, first impressions get posted (it's not a discovery if you listen to it over a few months and then post). At least in my case, my initial impressions don't always last on longer term listening-there is a tendency for that "first date" crush to kick in, where you love something, and go head over heels, only to find later that your date despises football and has an annoying laugh :(. I'm not saying we shouldn't post quick first impressions-I'm saying when reading these, we should all be interested, but realize that it's just an early heads up. (a side point: impressions are basically opinions, and different people hear the same unit but have different opinions on it, based on their own preferences, yada yada yada). I've got iems that I would rate A better than B in early head to head comparison, but, over time, find that I pull out B more. Or, another way to say this quickly (I know, shudda done that first), "don't take it so seriously, man!"

Just sayin...

So, D's are you then gonna try the new Panny portable HX450's as well?

 

 

The HX250 is the lowest so why get that. Why get the HT470 instead of/or if you already have the 480. But the top model portable may just be worthwhile unlike the S660 but we already knew JVC screwed us North Americans out of the S680 :(  Don't think Panasonic does that kind of thing.

Thread Starter 

I am trying to contact Panasonic to have them give out some samples of their phones.. By the way fellas.. Hurry.. The Pana 480s on Amazon just dropped to $74.!! Deal! Even them silvers. Thanks to jwong for the heads up. Absolute steal of a deal at that price..

 

This may sound crazy but I hope someone with the TH900 or TH600 gets to hear these. See what they think..Lol.

Alright, I'll bite-looks like they might be acceptable to my daughter, listen in the meantime, LOL

Yep, Dsnuts sold me another set of headphones. Will the madness ever end?

Does he offer a moneyback guarantee?:D

The Blue posted above would probably work better for my daughter than the black or white...having second thoughts

post #16268 of 26095

Maybe the white...

post #16269 of 26095

White is good. My daughter loves her white S400's.

DannyBai, did you ever try the fXD70-80 tips with the M-200? Surprisingly not bad. I kind of overlooked them because I always felt the M-200 needed a wide bore to sound its best, but not so.

post #16271 of 26095

The 450, in purple, probably works best for my daughter, but, I hate to buy one that doesn't sound as good, plus, if she doesn't like the look, it's mind...

Well, Amazon does on his behalf. :atsmile:

I think I had sold those off before hand but that totally makes sense.

Purple has always worked for girlfriends gifts colour schemes here. Most seem to like that colour. If she gets the 470 then probably could sell it here in a flash if the place doesn't have a decent 15 day return policy or anything,

better yet try to find a store with them on the shelf and go there at same time if possible and pick it up - the purple one- saying "oh WOW no waaaay they have THESE here!?!?!? you should read the massive reviews they are getting already" and get all excited see how she reacts :)

Sounds good...I like Amazon, think I'll get the white there, go to local BB, get the purple, return it if she likes the white, keep the white if she goes for the purple. Whew!

In the meantime, 1 point game, go J-E--T-S WOOF WOOF WOOF!!!
