PX100-II Review | Discussion Thread - Page 11

post #151 of 661
For Canadians these are on sale at Staples for $67 which the best Brick and mortar price I have seen them at. I think I am going to buy a pair and try them out. O think they might be good at work or walking around the house when I need to hear others.

Actually they $63 not $67 and they are pretty darn sweet sounding so far smily_headphones1.gif

I will post more impression after I have used them for a while.

Maybe that's just your local one? they're $90 at mine.

They ate normally $80 in the Alberta stores and were on sale for %20 off. The pricing is also the same on the website.

Strange... it shows $90 online for me. Maybe it auto adjusts the pricing based on location/postal code.

Whenever I try my II's to give them a chance, I come away feeling like the mid-bass hump is a bit much and that the bass bleeds into the mids, that the mids are quite recessed, that there is no treble to speak of, and the overall detail is lacking. Is it just me? By comparison, I then throw on my ksc75's (on headband), and all of those issues are resolved and I am amazed at how good they sound. Sorry to be a party pooper.

I think you must be right about the website being location specific.

Wayne, I hear you about them being possibly weighted in the midbass but I don't find it overly weighted. Having said that I am using a Nokia win8 phone which I find to be brighter than my old iPhone. If I use one of my I devices I do think these will be darker and maybe not as nice for me.

Having owned an HD600 and having heard the HD650 several times I do think these have a similar signature which is great for their price. Pink Floyd is very nice on these.

Re your source... yes. brighter probably will help. I'll try them off of my ELE DAC (which is a bit brighter), and listen to some Floyd. Sounds like fun! Thanks.

+1 on the mid-bass hump.  I don't normally use EQ, but for these I use the bass reducer eq setting.  Once the bass is decreased, you can actually hear the treble and mids much better!

I have had these headphones for a few months now, got them for $40. I refer to these as my bass-cannons, they truly have thunderous bass. They do have an insane amount of midbass but it doesn't seem to interfere enough with the midrange and treble to bother me, although it could probably use a bit less, but I just keep them as is for bassy music. They have a good deal more bass than my other headphones, both the K240 MKII and DT 990 Pro have less bass than these do. The HD 555 sound weak in bass in comparison and my Sansui SS-2s sound downright bassless when compared to them.

Hey guys The px100ii is my favourite headphone of all times. Now i Got the Sennheiser Amperior and I am very happy to share with you that is very close sound signature wise to the px100ii
They have the same awesome bass emphasis and inoffensive sound. The Amperior bass goes deeper it's a little more controlled. Anyway tons of bass that we like:)
The Amperior is also more detailed in the mids and Highs and a tad brighter. I think te Amperior sound is more correct with a lot of fun. No sibilance, no harshness, safe sound signature.

When I am outdoor I use always the px100ii
At night the Amperior.


Cheers!

How in the world do you prefer the PX100-II to the HE400?  I own both, and it's not even a fair comparison: the HE400 blow the PX100-II out of the water.
