Sony MDR MA 900 (new release from Sony) - Page 9

post #121 of 770

I'm going to check out the MA900 in a local Sony store tomorrow. There is a chance I might "borrow" one, but no guarantees.

Hahahaha.

 

Sony XBA-3, sounds like an experiment.

 

 

I didn't like the XB1000 very much either (and I'm a die-hard Sony fan...), then again it might be difficult to properly drive 70mm drivers?!  Considering the differences I hear in 16mm drivers all the time haha.

 

The Sony SA-5000, it's easy to reach high volume, from any old MP3 player with preamp/replaygain, that doesn't necessarily mean the drivers are at the beck and call of 10,000 Volts.

The headphone you're describing exists (it doesn't use exotic materials), it's called the AKG K340. Read about it here:

The general consensus is that it's neat, but not the end of the world. 

 

The issue you run into with multiple drivers, apart from the housing dilemma, is the crossover network. 

 

Lies :P, i know about it, but I anm talking about 1 speaker where the cone doubles as an electrostat, but it probably has similar problems, I am a programmer not an engineer lol.
Just sounds mad scientist like.

I thought the XB1000 was super sensitive? basshead.gif

 

WiR3D,

 

That sounds very scary. Wouldn't it just be easier to hook the jumper cables right to your head? tongue_smile.gif

it would probably be easier to make cheap biodyna drivers, but easy hasn't stopped anyone before.

I didn't know what the HJE900s looked like but I did remember that they included CZ in their construction which was mentioned earlier so I just double checked what the looked like on google before posting.

Yup, the entire housing.  More durable than the drivers apparently based on the failure rates.

I must say the MA-900 is very very light and comfy!
It leaks out alot of sound which would definitely me a no no to use in buses or trains without people glaring at me.

But in terms of sound, i tried comparing it to the MDR-Z1000 and i must say the soundstaging is more open, i didnt had much time to try them. The box is similar to the XB1000's except the luxurious looking padding is now removable and can be used as a drawstring pouch to house ur headphones (Something that is really welcome) 

This is my first post here, i hope to learn more about headphones in my stay here ^^

Lusting after new headphones means you are not on vacation.  Lusting and not buying is worse than just buying them and getting on with it. 

 

Schiit or get off the alps blue velvet.  wink.gif
