Really!!? Well I'll never doubt DannyBai's word. I can't wait to hear that!

Where and at what price are you guys buying the HPH200's?  I am only seeing them on Ebay.

post #16983 of 25592

$102.26 right now at Amazon. They were a little cheaper before.

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 agree, they are very light, don't get uncomfortable (at least in the short while I've worn them). Plastic feels a bit cheap to me (then again, the headphones ARE pretty cheap, relative to others I'm comparing them to). Pull them off the burn in ipod in a few minutes, listen/compare some more.

And without including those three, I have to say out of the rest I own (and have owned), the KEF M200 is still doing it for me. It's the BEST and most refined IEM I've heard for $200 or less. And while I can't say definitely it the best IEM I've heard up to the $400 level (again, excluding those three special ones), I can say definitely that it is my favorite sound signature-wise of universal IEM's I own, owned or have heard costing up to $500 MSRP.  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The KEF is a true GIANT killer in the realm of universals for my ears and the sound I like. I consider myself a basshead-audiophile, but I don't really consider the the M200 a basshead earphone (although it can give out enough sub bass to satisfy a basshead). The other great thing I'm discovering about the M200 is that it is very tunable base on the fit and how you have turned in your ear canal. You can actually turn it a certain way (as the same depth level) and get less bass. Fit issues are better once you learn how to wear these earphones properly. And you learn by trial and error (if you can get it the fit). Yes, everything I've stated about the DN-1K and AX-60 still hold true for my ears, but I've been consistent in stating that I don't think much out there beat the M200. Now I'm saying it definitively that I haven't really heard a universal that beats it. Some are equal to it, but nothing is really beating it. Happy listening. beerchug.gif


AND FOR NAYSAYER
> NO, I WASN'T GIVEN A SAMPLE. BOUGHT FROM A REGULAR RETAILER WITH MY MONEY! 


The M500 is still real special too, but the sound signature is totally different from the M200.

Why am I looking forward to receiving my M200's?

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?
Both headphones are very light and comfortable. For me, the Sennheisers feel lighter in their clamp and their over-the-ear luxurious feel just beat the Yamahas. Then again, I think my 598s are the most comfortable cans I've ever worn.

Still, I forget the Yamahas are on my head within a few moments. I have no issues at all with their fit and can't imagine anyone would.

I've got these things to keep me busy this week!





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

Wayne, mate! You'll be delighted to know that the M200 sounds awesome with the C3+BH combo!
post #16992 of 25592

IM SITTING at my computer music set up listening to the Yamaha' hph200s now.  like i have been for a week.

like DS I'm using all my listening time with these.  they are super comfortable, the sound flows like water,

the tonality is spot on, the soundstage is wide, the separation and instrumental  layering accurate and distinct.

I try to give other phones a try, but it doesn't work.  these are my sound mistress now and for a while.

enjoy discovering yours.

SEEMS to be a shortage of the Yamaha EPH200s.  amazon doesn't list them anymore and none on ebay.  hype turned to hip and now my

friend who wants one can't find any to buy....let us know if you find any more sale at a good 100$ vicinity price soon...thanks!
