Worst headphones in the world? - Page 3

post #31 of 37

Worst headphones that are supposed to be good are the B&W P5 that I heard a few weeks back. Muffled boring sound that really disappointed me after reading some fairly positive reviews.

These United Airlines headphones may superficially look ok, but they're supremely uncomfortable, shrill, muddy, and provide zero isolation.  Like UA, they give the surface appearance of providing a function, but with the most unpleasant user experience possible.

Thats suicide. biggrin.gif

In the interests of science, and personal pain, I dragged my Sony MDR-NC6 out and plugged them into my NobSound MS-10d tube amp to compare them to TakStar 80, KSC-75, etc.

I even replaced the pads with the extras that came with my HA-S-500.

Why? Ouch.

No, the gear and ODAC won't help.

Bad is as bad does.

Narrow nearly mono sound-stage, completely 2-d, lack of detail across the FR, missing harmonics everywhere, no mid lushness, no bass, zero deep bass, the anti-thesis of a basshead, midrange head, soundstage head or neutral head can.

They lasted 90 seconds before I pulled them off. Played 2 tracks and threw in the towel. Life is too short.

They are just bad.

An AM radio in a 1960's auto would sound far superior.

New one - Denon AH-W150

I was disappoint.

 

not 2 weeks after getting them and only about 3 hours on there the left earbud fell off. Sound quality was BASS, BASS and a little bit of mid. Bluetooth worked a pro if they were within a metre of the device and you couldn't have them under your waistline or they wouldn't work and broke up. shame.

Also, they didn't fit under my Arai which is always a negative. 

 

They were uncomfortable to get a proper fit and were totally not worth the $190nz I paid for them, promptly returned them and got some d340's instead. Lovely cans. 

 

You'd think Denon would be able to crap out something a little better for that amount of money!
