Thanks Zelda. Been very curious on how those fit and sound. Might be worth a look since its at a good price. More interested in those than the R3's.

If you thought that was me losing it, you ain't seen nothing yet lol!

 

But I think that you are probably referring to calming down from the Black Friday madness, and if so, yes I am cured... I got some T50RP's for a great price off of amazon, and now all I have to do is find some mad-modding genius (he he, you know who you are!) to transform them into monsters

That's your opinion on headphone I believe you haven't heard yet. It's a good headphone. You need to hear it for yourself before jumping to all of those conclusions. You certainly can't pull out of that from my comments. Plus, I don't recall anyone stating that it's a giant kller. Some did type that is goes head-to-head with some headphones causing hundreds of dollars more. I don't think that's an untrue statement. My contention is that I don't need it since I have other headphones that suit me fine sound signature-wise. But all headphones, of course, don't sound the same. The HPH-200 may suit someone else's sound signature than say the X1. We all have different expectations when it comes to audio equipment enjoyment (I don't like cold analytical sounding headphones too much as an example, but I know plenty who love that type of sound signature).

The HPH-200 is not  on the X1's level at all to my ears.

 

So which one is it? Is X1 on a whole different level or is it just a matter of a signature preference?

It's both. And it can be both.

So X1 is way better and you don't like Yamaha's signature?

Definitely interested in this part.

the Moe Audio SS01. 

the original thread http://www.head-fi.org/t/689069/mini-review-moe-audio-ss01-warning-tongue-in-cheek-and-tacky

got'em a week and half ago. truly impressed for the $60 or less price!! 

first listening: Amazing low-end. the bass is so full and engaging. like the old Fischer audio Eterna with it's crazy bass. mids are very forward. so thick and sick! highs were too smoothed down, even more than the RE400 with sony hybrid tips

after some short burn-in, they show some nice serious improvements. vocals have better presence and great texture. but i feel they still need a lot of burn-in to shine, specially the male ones.

highs are  brighter now, and keep opening up.

details are hidden at first, but slowly show up.

oh, and stage is really big. 

fit is great, very ergonomic. at least for me. some might have problems, like my cousin had. 

isolation is impressive, even with just stock tips, and i dont need to tip-rolling at all.

flat cable, but no microphonics even worn down

i think these beat the VSD1-S already

 

the only issue is the mild driver flex. but for the thick and fun sound it's easy to forget about

 

full review soon, but let them burn more!

 

just GET'EM now. 

 

Excellent hype.. getting me hyped! 

:beerchug:

They really are great. They have very nice subbass, which isn't common at that price. Midbass is slightly boosted, but nothing crazy. Clarity is unreal as well. I really like them, especially for the price.

 

I also have the VSD1LE, and I'll be keeping both. They both perform excellent.

 

My only issue with them, and one that Joker has as well, is that we can hear some harshness/edge in the ~4khz region. Hurts my ears after awhile. A simple EQ cut takes care of it however.

Is this what you were looking for? What can you tell me about the headphones/mods?

Plus... it blends really well with my wife's jigsaw puzzle! eek.gif

The MH1 is quite awesome out of anything. I just use it with my iPhone and apply a bit of EQ to tone down the sub bass and they're good to go. The only things I can nitpick are the slight lack of resolution and treble timbre. Extension is good, but a bit feathery soft, and it doesn't reproduce the sound of cymbals, strings, and brass the way that the K3K does.

[/URL]... guess these MH1Cs was your ticket off of that luxury Titanic that was heading for you know what. bigsmile_face.gif

Dat foresight and perspective is indeed invaluable in this crazy hobby so good advice there for noobs like me that are just getting their feet wet. beerchug.gif These ASG 2 sure made me realized something as well. I am just more thankful for what i own now cuz of it. haha

Fitting really......

I don't plan on selling off the K3K simply cause its still the most versatile phone that I own. I actually don't listen to much else in my collection simply cause I always notice what sounds "off" on my other pairs with the K3K around. The G-2 is my second favorite phone in my collection but the cymbals on my rock albums tend to sound muffled or tizzy. I think the FA-04 delivers a sound that is comparable to the G-2 without the uneven treble and midbass hump

And actually, some of my favorite phones are actually in the midrange tier. If I could only own a single phone with a max budget of $300, it'd probably be either the FAD HEAVEN S or the Heaven A/C. Really stunning performance from a single BA driver, delivering a generous sense of space and placement (comparable to the G-2), great timbre, solid and low reaching bass (easily comparable to the G-2), clear and lifelike mids (I prefer it to the G-2 since it makes the G-2 sound kinda muffled actually), I remember the highs on the Heaven S were kinda tizzy as well, but nothing egregious, and it's got great air. (I think the Heaven A was smoother in that respect). Best of all, I believe the going price for the H A/C/S was around $200 or less. (IMO) Most of the uber top tier phones just offer refinement on the raw performance of these phones, maybe like the final 10% or so. It's also worth noting that the cables on both the Heaven S/C/A are total crap, you get either the woefully microphonic and tangle prone flat cable of the H S or the sewing string thin cable of the H A/C. Both are face-palm worthy

For the life of me I can't figure out why I took so long to try Sony hybrids on the RE400. It gives me the extra touch of bass I was wishing the RE400 possessed. Guess I need to take them off of my for sale list. Wow!

Yeah, I really agree with you that the hybrids bring out that added bass. IMO, the RE400's are really special phones.

^ Yeppp feel almost the same as you regarding those MH1Cs, and that was why i had once gathered 3 sets but ended up selling them all cuz that cable made me not want to touch them. haha Still looking for someone that can do a recable but no luck so far sigh. The MH1Cs needs a good amount of power in order to drive them properly though, and i would imagine a lot of cell phones can't drive them loud enough, cuz even using my ipod i have to also tapped out on the power so like that failed cable, their harder to drive nature makes them not the most ideal for smart phone use as well. DOUBLE FACE PALM!!! Once re-cabled these are elevated to instant GODHOOD for me.  : P

 

Hmmm interesting to see your views on the FADs, never had a chance to listen to them, nor have the desire to get them cuz too blingy/ tacky design for me so never did much research. But think it was that annoying fanatic S400 Ben dood that speaks very highly of them as well, though i do question his sanity A LOT of the times regarding how he hears stuff. LMAO :tongue: For $200 - $300 smackers i am holding out for what VSonic will bring to the table with their upcoming lineup cuz like what you wrote about those TOTL gear$$$$s are like the final 10% or so of further refinement over the FADs, the gr07 BEs is my personal benchmark. And this is EXTREMELY evident in these ASG 2s that i am listening to right now, and as ekey boi similarly compared these ASG 2s to other TOTL $1K and up gears those offer only small incremental "refinements" as well, so...... 

 

BUDGET/MID- FI is where the fun it's at boi!!! They seem to give you more bang for the buck and the sonic gap/ cap to price ratio is constantly being pushed to new limits/ heights as these cheapo MH1Cs clearly exemplified for you.  Though the dangers of playing in this less pricey arena is buying wayyy to many due to that constant chase for the newest/ best bang for buck. haha Welp not like this doesn't happen in summit-fi as well. ;) Dats the nature of the beast i guess......

Sweet glad to hear those RE-400s are that good sonically, but we all know how they are built by now. ;) These mofos ALL seems to love to troll us with sub par built/ cables even when they have a sonic winner in their hands sigh. MH1Cs, those $300 FADs wannabe birdie mentioned and these RE400s, the list goes on and on. Would it kill them to use generic cables like that are use in the cheapo Mee M9s or M6s??? LMAO :rolleyes:
