Some phones are just dialed in.  These relatively inexpensive duel dynamic micro driver oems are way more sonically satisfying then they should be for the money or the specs.

They are just very "musical" and give you the essence of a musical performance with clarity and enthusiasm, texture and rhythm, but not so much analytical detail.  they are

comfortable, well made, and come with a nice zipper pouch but few accessories.  they deserve some tip rolling experiments (not done yet, DS suggests wide bore tips will improve sound even)

Not the warmth or grace of the On-1s or soundstage of the Zero Audio Singulos, but a worthy pocket to go ism, a pleasure to listen to various kinds of music on, and a real discovery IMHO.

Give a try, and if you don't enjoy them, give em away...but i think you might like to enjoy them for a new musical friend...the bass mid tremble b a lance is outstanding....

Product DetailsATH RE700  retro styled aluminum driver portable headphones

 

 

 

Middle of the night listening with my burned in ATH RE700 headphones:

out of the new LG 8.3" tablet Verizon gave me with my upgrade to HTC one M8, through

FiloE18  Kundlen (as amp, no dac output used),  FABULOUS sound listening to cloud mp3

from Amazon.  so smooth, i fell asleep listening to Broken Bells on the cloud, which rarely

ever happens, woke up humming the song i heard last....these phones have some

sibulence, but they improve the mp3 sound with very very well integrated bass and subbass

that is an improvement over the previous 700 ATH series phones.  a worthy companion for

listening to iOS or android devices, and the extra amping makes the bass even better and

your brain likes it......no grain in the music, gets very musical and you forget it is the cloud you are listening to.

at the new discounted price of 100$ (back up to 121 today)  a worthy travel and late night companion....thanks to VIENBO for his

encouragement to give these phones an audition...

There was someone, not to long ago saying they are indeed better than the es700.
post #24471 of 25603

In some ways YES.  base AND sub bass more integrated.  designed to play smoothly out of IOS and android devices and sound like music

with compressed files,. less detail and smaller soundstage than es700.  retro styling kind of odd and bulky. but drivers are big tech breakthrough

i do believe.

post #24472 of 25603

they were at that 100$ price point on the big A site and at beach audio. but they went up since last weekend to 125.00 or so.

check sonic sense also, a bunch of the big consumer sites for electronics are carrying them now .

OK, long day, 10 hour pick up of my daughter from college, 1 music post, no energy for more right now
Really interesting band, though, give a listen dog Dogdrive Discovery for today...

post #24475 of 25603

A friend of mine is looking for a circumaural closed-back headphone that is relatively portable and has good bass. He specifically wants to bring them with him to the library to study with. His budget is $150. The only headphone I have in mind is the ATH-M50 or ATH-M50X, but was wondering if anyone else here has suggestions?

post #24476 of 25603
Tbh I'd suggest he looks into Iems as they provide better portability and are also much easier to find great sound without breaking the budget. The IM50, Tenores, and Basso comes to mind.

The UE6000 is currently $86 for the white on Amazon. They fold for compact storage, has detachable cable, iOS buttons and sound good. Has noise cancelling, but feels like a gimmic as it only boosts the low end (no mic to gauge the outside noise for opposing sound waves tech). They do not leak sound out and they are good for isolating noise out even with "NC" off.

Thanks for asking, Mochill!

 

Different technology, Tenore's are dynamic, Singulos are BA, both are carbon nano based.  different price points, Tenores about half the price.

Different sounds, Tenores are SMOOTH...with vocals and midrange focused but with good bass, Singulos have more bass and more upper midrange

treble presence and wider soundstage and more detail....Tenores good for most music, but especially make gorgeous music with vocals, Singulos are

EDM friendly and produce hallucinogenic sound stage for psychedelic music and blues....if you had to make a choice i would go with Tenore for

purity of its sound and worth having for sure at that bargain price...Singulos give you "more sound" and sonic achievement for some kinds of music

and is a real treat that is at the WOW level when synergies are right....of course the DOPPIOS have the best of both worlds and are a relative bargain

in the mid fi world.  saw a head=fi listening for a used Doppio for 130.00 the other day.  the Doppios have more texture and slam than either of them

and definitely will be in the years "half of fame" awards, but they are not quite as silky as the Tenores and not as clean as the Singulos, being duel

carbon nano BA.  as Mark Twain said, "you pays your money and you takes your choice".!  in Zero Audio , all good choices however!! being OCD about

headphones, of course, I'm holding on to all three!!!  PS all three have great inner ear fit, and seal well and are very comfortable, with Doppios being heavier

and bigger.  Zero Audio hit trifecta here!!!!  all three won audio awards in japan....anyway these are my HO, and I'm happy to share my experiences with them.

DS wrote also that once he plugged Doppios into his GO, they pretty much stayed there as a perfect match. all 3 sound good directly out of devices or

usb dacs with small gain, and not so much with larger amps, so all designed for mobile use....
