hmmm you know what is interesting, throw the AKG 167s/ 267s into the mix. The 167s is getting lots of great impressions so far and they are at a very competitive price of ~$200. If the 167s are any indication of how the 267s would sound, those 3 bass tuning options will be epic. LoL

 

It is interesting that you say that the Sony 1Rs are a upgrade to your UE6000s Ds, i was hoping the other way around. ha Man there are just too many $200 to $300 full size closed cans in the market right now, hope this saturation will mean big price drops for consumers.  Fingers crossed!

I like my UE6000 a lot trust me. If you get one it you will not be disappointed for $200. The bass on those are silly. Noise cancelling. with more bass to your head. 2 tunings. No NC gives a balanced sound. With NC a great V shape eq bass boosted..Solid sound quality.

 

But these Sonys has something about it I am absolutely loving. Vocals on this headphones have to be heard. Unreal. Absolutely wonderful sounding full mids on the 1Rs. I posted this impression on the MDR-1R thread. http://www.head-fi.org/t/625015/sony-has-new-headphones-mdr-1r/990#post_8901353

Yeah i will be definitely getting the UE6000s as an upgrade when I think i need it. $200 with NC is hard to beat in one package plus they seem to sound great with or without NC on is a plus.

 

But AKG looks like they will bring the heat this year with those 167/ 267s. Can't wait to see more reviews/ impressions and comparisons with other top brands. The V Moda M100s would have been great around $250 but there are just too many great quality choices out now to warrant that $300 price tag.

I am very happy with my 2 choices.. Movie watching using the NC on the UE6000 is like having your own. THX on your head. My favorite movie watching headphone by a lot. The new AKGs are interesting. Will see how those turn out. I am curious about the 53mm WS99 Solid bass headphones. Too many headphones.

 

Why can't AT see my custom title and throw a dog a bone. Geeze..Ya I will take one CKS99, CKS1000, WS77, WS99. Por favor.~!

LoL, you gotta steal some of HiFiGuy528's swag, doesn't he get free sets from major brands due to his unboxing vids on youtube??? I like his unboxings vids "a lot" LoL but his reviews are so so. I guess it doesn't pay to play with lil' cheapos ha, you gotta play with the big bois. 

 

Then it's the end of Dsnuts' rep cuz we be calling you a sell out for praising $$$ rapper cans, etc in return of free "reviewer" sets. biggrin.gif

I'm going to have to go out on a whim no matter what. I have no way of trying them before I buy. That's why I'm trying to read on them as much as possible. I like Sony's sound signature typically, and I LOVE the S500s. I like full mids, but instrument seperation is one of the most important things to me.

700

Even more shameless triple post pick of sexiness. I would try one. Burn in is a requirement.

You finally got one. Nice. Looking forward to hear what you say about these MH1s and the Ele dac. In the mean while burn them in. If your a believer. If not just use them for 10 straight hours every day for 2 weeks. lol!

So far listening to them with a bit of everything. Definitely seem like good all rounders. Nirvana, 2Pac, Zz Top, Chopin, Deftones, Wilco, Deadmau5, etc. All sound pretty impressive.

You got a preburned one. I am certain of it. Mine sounded like poo on open package. Lol. I think it depends on the batch of phones you get. I read a few post how guys thought these didn't live up to the hype ect. Even reports of fakes. I can see how guys would think a raw driver version would sound like a cheap knock off .. I bet they got the raw driver version like I got.

Listening to Ludacris' How Low. Dat bass.

Arghh I'm fighting with myself. The price of E17 on Amazon is tempting. Should I go for it or wait for the ELE DAC to arrive? I know I'm just gonna use it only with my laptop confused.gif

I don't know if the E17 is still on sale at BnH photo  but I saw it for $100 earlier today. I just checked they are sold out.

 

Well if you plan on using it for an amp for your portable device and the fact that it has a dac end to it. Is a nice portable set up. I say get both. What is another $17. Different chip that is in the Ele dac. Or you can get a E11 which has around 30% more power over the amp portion of the E17 and and get the Ele dac as you can hook the E11 to it and you will have an amp for the go and a amp for your Ele dac which will sound tremendous I bet. Haven't tested this yet.

 

I will test the results using the E11 tomorrow.

I'd made a thread on the SOMiC MH463

I bought them for $44 and I think they're a steal, but the only place I found selling them internationally before was Focalprice, for $69.

Now I found that through a taobao agent you can apparently get them for $31.35! L3000.gif
