I think that lack of body could be down to the lack of sub bass on these cans. It doesn't detract from their greatness for me though.

That is how they kinda sound unburned.. After burn in they turn into one great sounding headphone.

Special thanks to a fellow headfier who's kind enough to let me audition the C3, BH amp, and MA750!

 

After seeing this, it dawned on me that you already didn't have the C3 + BH (I'm a nice boy... just not that bright lol).

 

So that's very cool that you were able to try the C3/BH with the M200's and confirm that the synergy is good. Excellent!

 

I'm sure that you will be trying out the H200's with the C3/BH as well. I'll be very interested to see how you feel that compares to the H200 and your C5.

 

What settings are you using on the BH? I tend to keep the LF switch off (bass/treble boost) and the SF switch on (vodoo soundstage increasing switch).

I'm not hearing that yet, but I trust his thoughts. It's not bass shy, but the m500 has more sub-bass to my ears. It's better than the Onkyo, which I like a lot.

 

The M500's sub-bass (when called for) continues to blow my mind. What amazing bass.

Does anyone know when the Fostex TE05 is supposed to be getting released. They were mentioned about a hundred pages ago and since then the discussion has been silent. I've been trying my hardest to resist buying anything until then. I sorta failed today and bought the Delta and VSD1S. And, the new ATH IEMs are taunting me as well.

So it turns out selling my year old Alienware was a good move on my part. I am opportunistic when there is a deal and indeed there was a deal for the Shure SRH1540s. I am excited to get these cans. I will definitely post my thoughts on them when I get them..I missed my Alienware..

 

You would have to have owned one to understand.. So to ease the pain I also got a new Lenovo Y410 laptop to replace it..Considering I spend almost the exact amount I got for the Alienware in the Shures and the Lenovo..I feel much better about the transaction. I am very excited to hear them new Shures.

DannyBai, you're are correct as usual. I have had the Cardas on massive burn-in, and it keeps changing and opening to an even more fuller and beautifully sounding iem. Really nice. 

 

And Dsnuts (and DannyBai), I can really hear the HPH-200's potential, so back to burning in it goes. The drums, vocals, and imaging are quite nice in that headphone already.

Them Yamahas will grow on you like they have for me. They do give out a different presentation on different sources..Once you get that right source however. They sound unbelievably fantastic. Try out your X3 with them Ericp if you haven't yet.

post #17023 of 26064
I have well over 300 hours on the Cardas, probably close to 400 now and the sound still gradually gets better. It has such a big, thick sound that just fills your head with lush, euphoric sound. There's really nothing that sounds like it.

The Yammy's sound so good with a clean source too. The synergy with the Yulong D100 MKII is crazy good. The bass to me is fuller than what I remember with the M500's. The M500's had really tight controlled bass with good sub-bass extension but the Yamaha's have more quantity as far as I can remember. It really didn't show up until I had a few days of burn in. Possibly source plays a big part too since this headphone is kind of like a chameleon when hooking up to different gears. Layering is fantastic!

disclaimer: I haven't really given enough listening time to the MA750. Probably just under 1 hour session. So this is NOT my final comparison review.

 

Initial Impressions:

  • M200 is Sub-bass focused while the MA750 has a bit of mid-bass hump. Both have their own advantages depending on the type of song/genre being played.
  • M200 seems more cleaner and refined from mids to highs. The MA750 doesn't have the same clarity/detail from upper mids to treble but is still great for the price.
  • M200 extends more at the highs compared to the MA750.
  • MA750 seems to have a huge headstage; bigger than the M200 but not necessarily wider. (not so sure about this, will have to listen again to confirm)
  • MA750 sounds warmer than the M200.

I've had the BH for a while now and I don't really change any of the settings at the back. Maybe the LF switch from time to time for a more "fun" sound.

 

The M200 does play well when paired with the C3+BH combo, really fun sounding; but I do find that the C3+C5 combo has a more cleaner and colder sound. So it really boils down to preference. Personally, I prefer the bass more on the C3+C5 combo.

 

I still have to try the H200 on the C3+BH combo... I'm too overwhelmed by all these toys with me right now plus I'm so addicted to the M200! Will let you know once I've tried the H200.

Sound: As my first Audio Technica IEM I am not sure what the sound signature is normally but I will say that this is a very powerful neutral. It doesn't really seem to be lacking in any field but if I had to choose something that was forward a little it would be the mid range. Voices actually work really well on these headphones. The clarity on Adele's Set Fire To The Rain (24/96) was spectacular. The bass is very impactful without being overwhelming. Instead of really choosing frequency it sounds like they tried to create a nice balance of mid and lower bass. Every, IMO, really gels well together. It's not a cold sound. It's more of a warm neutral and it's strong across the board.

Build quality wise: F*** YES! A nice thick non-flat cable! The cord seems very durable. The detachable connector actually took a little pulling to get out so it's locked in there quite well and I didn't feel any pull when I pulled it gentle. The shell is very plastic-y but it feels sturdy enough. Instead of ear guides the headphones have a flexible kind-of memory wire that is about 3/4th of my index finger long to wrap around your ear. I actually prefer that because ear-guides never worked for me.

Accessories: It's definitely no Monster but it does come with a set of Comply T500 (which means the TSX500s I use on the gratitude's will work), regular S M L silicon tips, and a regular pouch. I actually think they might benefit from the triple flange tips monster has but we'll see about that later.

Remember that this is without tip-rolling or burn-in which I won't get to do for a month. I would say I recommend these over everything I currently own and have listened to. I do not regret the money I spent on them. smily_headphones1.gif

Not to mention, and surprisingly, they drive better than the Gratitude's on my Nexus 5.

Awesome impressions! I've just ordered myself a Christmas present. I got the IM50 and the ATH-S500 from CDJapan, only came to $130 with express shipping. Excited to try them out.
