Im so close to ordering them, but there are so many other options...

 

I purchased these after seeing that video as well. I was somewhat disappointed with these headphones. I'm always looking for a killer price performance ratio in any new product, and based on his review, I thought this was a sure fire! I learned the hard way those videos are not very critical and basically they point out highlights of a product and no negatives. Not to say that they aren't a decent performing headphone, just that based on his review, I was expecting a slightly better headphone. 

 

I would agree that the bass on these isn't going to be overwhelmingly pleasant. They were just so-so for bass.

confused_face.gif Hmph maybe not such an upgrade for me then.

 

I listen to anything from straight Jazz fusion to Rock to Ska and Djent. Im really looking for an all rounder and i cant seem to find anything! Maybe Grado 225i's or K550's if i can find them for 200 somewhere.

 

Ill stop polluting this thread now!

I'd take the MA900 or HD600 as an all-arounder over the 225i and K550, for sure.

 

Guess you could always EQ your CAL... wink.gif

I would totally second the MA900 or HD650 / HD600 as all rounders, but the MA900 is darn comfortable and light.

 

When I get my AD900x I'll make a video and I promise you I'll be critical of both heh.

Sadly no. I want to!

Got a review of the MA900 up on youtube!

 

 

Also posted a comparison with the AD900X: http://www.head-fi.org/t/654161/review-comparison-ath-ad900x-vs-ma900-its-over-900

 

Executive summary: I prefer the MA900 but they are both awesomesauce.

Oh, you're the one behind these videos. I subscribed about two weeks ago after discovering your Momentum review.

 

IMO they're the most informative headphone reviews on youtube. And your choice of ambient background music is great, too. Keep'em coming!

Thanks ^__^ 

 

Yes I didn't want to link back to Head-Fi until I was more confident with the videos. :3 The MA900 one came out a bit red though.

i really like the sound of the headphone but i really hate how it touch my ears and i dont like the feel of the earpad.

 

Is there any replacement earpad i can use for Ma900 ?

post #716 of 770
Oh darn it! I just ordered the MDR 1rs and you guys got me thinking.
The I was just wondering if the portability diffrence justified the sound difference.

I keep going back and forth between these and those HD600's. :(

So I actually recently became the proud owner of the MA900s, and I still have the HD600. Some day I can try to do a direct comparison for you, though I'm a newb when it comes to judging/anlayzing headphones. Maybe if someone could give me some quick tips about how I can best do that...

 

Though I'm kinda limited because I only have one headphone amp (with one output).

long overdue, but finally manged to post my review:

http://www.head-fi.org/products/sony-mdrma900-over-the-head-style-headphones/reviews/8734

 

Which i no longer own because i've been so spoiled by earspkears of various designs and the need for a good closed pair  but will be happy to recommed to anyone who's more sane than me wrt to the money which sould be spent on a pair of nice headphones for home.  redface.gif

Anyone try alternate earpads with these?  It looks like they have elastic around the edge and just pull off..  The shure 840 pads or brianwavz hm5 pads?
