Btw, you're got that backwards. It should be:

 

1% of headphones out there are inferior to the 99% in the same price range.

I was very aware of the FR on the Yamahas. I bought them anyway I am completely glad I did..I am really looking forward to hear what you guys that bought them have to say.. And do give them a good burn in..

 

As for this thread. This thread is comprised of what you guys have to say.. More for what your discoveries are, more so than anything else. That is what it was intended for. I just post my own discoveries and they seem to be agreeable to some but not all. It never is. I do expect some to not enjoy the Yamahas. That is expected as everyone has their likes and dislikes about a sound. I encourage guys to post how they hear a phone and truly that is what this thread is about. We may not all agree but that is ok that is just the subjective nature of how we all hear differently.  It can be something as simple as how our ears are shaped when your mama made you, and then add to that our own preference in sound..It is impossible for everyone to like a certain sound or a phone and that is true with every single phone at headfi..

 

Now saying one can is better than another is all subjective as well..I think all cans have a certain degree of proficiency and the fact that the particular can or phone makes it to the discovery thread means they were favored by one or many of you guys and that is all that really matters..This ain't a thread for my can can kick your can upside in the bass or whatever that was mentioned.. Ben seems to really like them new HA-S680s and I don't doubt those are a solid step up from the HA-S500..

 

But it is bad form to say something about a can one has not heard..

I love you guys

Listening to Best Ciast (sound like New Pornographers, no), and one of my reference artists (know every note, good for headphone comparisons), Aimee Mann. These things are crazy good. Decided to pull my Sennheiser 650's and do a quick comparison...know what? Like the Amperiors better in this quickie comparison.real immediate, great highs, vocal clear and warm as can be, solid bass, even wide stage (650's is better).
Just sayin'.....

Talking about first impressions I finally got my self a pair of Onkyo IEHF300s (yeah I know I'm late to the party :normal_smile :). 

 

I really like what I'm hearing after only a few hours with them. Man, do they have a BIG sound. I'm a little surprised that these went of the rader so fast but I'll guess it's the nature of this thread (and this forum in general as well ;)).

 

If someone is still interested I got them of Aliexpress for $48 with free shipping and I see that they are even cheaper now:

What type of sound signature do they possess? I've been curious about them for a little while.

I've only listened to them for about an hour yesterday without any burn in but first impression is a very big sound which makes me think more of a full sized closed can than an IEM. For the first time ever I felt a need to listen to classical music on a IEM so I put Vivaldis "Four season" on my X3 and it sounded great. Great soundstage and a very rich and full sound was the immediate impression with them.

 

I'll get back with some more impressions tonight when I get more time on them.

Liking the price now.

 

Moxpad has been taking its time to come in, would love some comparisons between the two if possible.

If you are talking about the Onkyo's vs Moxpad's I've also been waiting for my Moxpad's for a long time now and it's still not in Norway. I will be going on a business trip to the US for 10 days from this Thursday so it's highly unliklely that I will get the Moxpad's before I leave:mad:

Are you sure they are genuine though? It's so much cheaper than non-China sites

I've had a look at their other IEMs on offer, lots of brands are there too surprisingly considering some are not known much outside of audiophile circles.

For all their deemed genuine offerings, seems like they bothered to photoshop-ed out some of the logos but some were just left there like that.

Genuine, really? at such a price? 

But who would bother to mass produce obscurely known audiophile IEMs?

Your IEM does come with the Onkyo logo on it but no retail packaging?

Yes, I've been thinking the same myself but at the price I thought it was worth the risk of trying. I also thought it's an IEM unlikely to be made as fake since it's not that popular.

My impression about how they sound seem to be in line with other reviews and the measurements at Innerfidelity but of course, there are no guarantees.

It came with Onkyo logo without retail package and with only one set of tips.

So far I'm thinking it might be the best $50 IEM's I've got (at least the most impressive right from the box) so I'm happy :gs1000smile:

YES!! the HPH-200's are getting some DS love at last! I mentioned exactly this in PM to the guy I purchased mine through, that they only needed someone like DS to pick up a pair and they will get noticed....these truely are a fantastic sounding set of cans.

Mirroring Danny's comments, I found these to be quiet a bit better than the CAL! (original), which I have hence sold.

Some comments and quick comparissons if you've not read this already:

OK, site does seem really cheap, but I'll take a chance as well. Ordered, but not sure if it went through, things a bit confusing @ Aliexpress. See what happens...
