Sennheiser Amperiors? - Page 67

post #991 of 1019

dj yes of course, they have setup one of the cups to slide it up and out of the way if that is what you mean by DJing

post #992 of 1019

If you read the second page of Tyll Hertsen's Sennheiser MOE review at innerfiedelity.com, he says that the HD25 series and Amperiors are DJ headphones.

 

I think the Amperior/HD-25 has had a long history in audio monitoring.

Has anyone gotten an extra headband and tried getting it hot enough to mold it around something to make it a little bigger and thus reduce the headclamp? I'm kind of thinking about taking the foam off a headband, and wrapping it around a hot pot just long enough to remold it without melting it. Or maybe try to hairdry it.

that's one idea or you could just get the HD-26 Pro, more comfy, less tight feeling, and better sounding.

Do you have a review up? I'm looking for one...

post #996 of 1019

no review, maybe a mention in a mini piece I am doing on popular portable cans.  Since they are around $350 and I heard and owned lots of $350 portable cans, I prefer some others for the price.  My faves for comfort and sound quality are the Sony 7520 and Focal Spirit Pro.  The Spirit Pro can be a bit tight  and can press upon the top of the ear when new but do loosen a bit over time.  I have a pair in for review and will get it up on my blog in a few weeks.

 

All of the circumaural headphoness made for portable use that use a round cushion are much smaller than ear size (eg cushion 40mm and ear 65mm) and hence you either fold your ear into them eg. Momentum or Focal or let them rest on the bottom lobe without really going all around the ear.  This can affect bass in some models.  With the supra aurals you have to get used to the higher clamping pressure to keep them in place.  Pick your poison I suppose.

What's your blog? I keep looking for a closed can with comfort and sound quality and had started looking at the 7520. Do you have a review up there?

Blog is in my signature, just click and close your eyes, you'll end up in Kansas:)

 

No headphone reviews up at the moment, a number will be soon, along with portable amps, dac, etc.  I have a bunch of stuff I selected that has all come in at once.

i just got them! sound so good <3.  dissapoitned the cable is on the right side though. Might want to buy the hd 25 coiled cable to dj.

Is only the left side the one to be able to rotate?!?! Gah..I prefer cable on left and swivel on right (even though i dont ever use while cueing)

Why?

post #1001 of 1019

why what... Why do I prefer left side? Simply because i prefer the left side lol.

post #1002 of 1019

right is kind of odd.  i think most headphones have the cables running from the left.  I had my Amperiors on backwards when i first got them because i just assumed that the cables were supposed to be on the left.:biggrin:

Yup, same happened to me. I wore them backwards for about a week before I put them on the right way and noticed they were more comfortable :confused_face:.

Got my Amperiors last night. They sound fantastic from the X3. I think I'll definitely be keeping them. But the cables really suck, as expected. Any recommendations for cables? I'm willing to spend around $150 (more than the cost of the headphones. LOL), but cheaper is appreciated, all things being equal.

When I tried these; I felt like just removing the cups from the headband, hanging them in front of my desk, and using them as mini loud speakers, lolz.
