Mine were $117.59 shipped via EMS.


thanks a lot. it's already 111 with ems. will wait until it becomes more available and less in price and will grab them. could you please describe how higher frequencies sound? oh and how low profile it is in the ear - could I sleep with them? and one last thing - how are the filters arranged? are they metal mesh or something else?


thanks again smily_headphones1.gif

You're going to have to wait until some others get theres because mine have been hidden from me until the 25th of December. The only information I've got is the information that I've already given because they are a Christmas stocking stuffer. Sorry mate.

HPH-200 are on the ears. Very nice out of the box. Quite nice! Further impressions later, but vocals and mids are beautiful out of the box, and it surprisingly has more bass than I had anticipated.

Et tu ericp10? Sometimes it seems like this entire forum is conspiring to encourage me to buy just one more set of headphones...

I like the feel. It feels light. The M500 (which so far I still think beats the HPH-200, but it's not slaughtering it) is beautiful, sounds amazing, but it gets heavy on my head and fatiguing.

I discovered the HPH-200 a while back now and raved about them on a couple of threads here, but nobody listened! I'm afraid I'll have to spend a lot of money to better these and even then, I'll have something to complain about or be annoyed or regretful about. That's the one star quality of these headphones, I cannot fault them, regardless of price, they are amazing with every genre.

Someone was complaining earlier in this thread about their graphs. Well, rest assured that these 'imperfect' appearing data (for some people's eyes) has no bearing on how these sound.

I'm very picky about what I like, and a natural and realistic yet exciting sound is what I want. I'm very sensitive to mid range colouration that lend an artificial edge to the sound (a complaint all too common in many headphones for me). Well, I really can't fault the tonal and dynamic reproduction of these headphones.

If I had to force a complaint, I would say they can very occasionally present a slight muddiness in the bass, which can somewhat mask some of the detail in the lower mids. It's quite recording dependent though.

These are by far the best bang for buck headphones I know. Truly a joy of a purchase. Real keepers.

How is the comfort of the Yamahas? I had the M500, which was very comfortable at first but uncomfortable after a while.

Well, they are over ears. They are light. It looks like they have comfy pads. My guess is that they are very comfortable!

Yes they are very light and comfortable. Pads feel great on my ears. The M500 does get heavy after awhile. The sound is quite refined. Drums do sound nice and natural (before burn in). The M500 has a more analytical sound than HPH-200 (which is a bit warmer sound). That's not to say the M500 is super cold sounding. There's more bass in the M500, but the bass is very nice for an open can in the Yamaha. These are definitely a more mid-centric earphone, and I love the sound. Actually this had a detailed mid that make me think of the RE400, but with more bass that I wish the Hifiman possessed. Highs aren't too harsh. Just a beautiful neutral-ish mid-centric sound.

Hmm... I actually found the M500 a bit bass shy, at least from memory. Maybe it was that lack of warmth. I don't know know how to pinpoint it exactly... I could tell they were quality headphones but the sound didn't pull me in. I'm liking my K545 a lot more. The Yamaha is interesting because I no longer have any open headphones.

 

I should probably wait until Friday anyway and see if any other deals suck me in!

post #16978 of 25612
I realize they are two totally different species, but how do the HPH-200s compare to Hd598 in comfort alone. Right now I'm looking for a nice open headphone around $100 with comfort as the priority.

Got my brother the 598s for his birthday and of course tried them out first. The comfort made me decide I want something at least as good as it in comfort.

I ask about the HPH-200 because it sounds like it has a nice warm, mid-centric sound and that is #2 on the important list for what I want.

Anyway, comfort compared to other open, comfortable headphone?

Wow, really? The M500's have the most incredible bass out of all of my headphones.

 

As far as the K545's go, I want them as well lol!

HPH200's are on ear with velour padding and light clamping which equals to one of the most comfortable in ears I've encountered. Also, the bass opens up after a couple of days of burn in. The bass is bigger than the M500.
