I mean JVC S500 and AT S500 compared and being close in performance but having their own sigs/house sounds.


The only reason why people compare JVC S500 and AT S500 is that they are both called S500.

Wouldn't be happening if AT called theirs S742.

 

Also S680 is on ear for most people - a very comfortable one, but still an on ear.

Fidelio X1 for $150 on Amazon (deal of the day).  Which is better, X1 or Yamaha HPH200?  Is there anything better for $150?

X1, even with Dsn having his high-end shure's he still compliments the X1 every now and then.

True dat but the deal on amazon.com is $150,- which is around £92,-

Them Yanks are in luck again even though delivery time says 1 to 2 months. :rolleyes:

Beautiful deal you got there. Damn, wish I could get those at that price. That's like, 50% off. And at a price like that, the X1s are literally unstoppable. No headphone could beat the X1s at that price point. Nothing.

 

It's the headphone to rule all headphones...pretty much. It's got great comfort, an awesome soundstage (obviously since it's open), and most surprisingly, the looks. They look so gorgeous, I'd show 'em off to the world with pride. Sadly, I don't have them, but if I do, they'll be the only home headphones I will ever need. That is, until I take a step into Summit-Fi and get the LCD-2s.

 

All I need is a job that's f'n hard to find 'round here. China (and even the Phils) ain't no place for a teen to make money. Lucky for alla dem teenz over in the US of A, they could actually get themselves a part-time job. So jealous of them...

Not so much. Jobs are hard to find in the US too, even for teens.

 

If I didn't have the HE-500, I would have jumped on the deal... BUT, the headphone may not have been for me.

 

I have a general rule. If a piece of audio equipment cannot be flat to 20hz, I will not own it. Being open, it takes a big dip after 50hz. Accudio shows it can be corrected/enhanced though, so if you got these for $150, it looks like a steal.

 

I think they are being blown out to make room for the new models.

AAAAAGH this is killing me. I tried o order the X1 and turns out my bank has some problems with credit cards, therefor transactions are limited :( And I was so thrilled to get them...

Yes, CKN70 has more clarity overall, but Pistons are close. If you want more bass and generally good clarity, Pistons will suffice, but the CKN70 is almost approaching BA-like clarity to my ears.

Though it seems like they don't best the new $100 ATH IM70s fo' sho. :  (

I don't understand why this is disappointing. The CKN70 is a better earphone than I think you gave it time to find out about, sf? I barely listen to it (because of the cable), but when I do I'm amazed how good it sounds. Now, two things here:

 

- Me thinking the Pistons doesn't best the CKN70 doesn't mean the Pistons aren't very good and aren't worth to sit in that same category.

 

- And it's about sound signatures you like anyway, so you may not agree with me (which is fine with me). I still read a few reviews by head-fiers I generally respect who say the Cardas suck and that the EX-1000 is better sounding than the H3. I don't agree with those opinions at all, but I understand that we like what we like.
