Not much of a soundstage, instrument dimensionality isn't really there, instrument location is a fuzzy blob disc somewhere over there, but tone is warm and good and harmonically it's ok considering that I paid $24 for the pair. The 850-M compare favourably to the S500 and in fact share many similarities.

I usually listen to volume at 7am to 9am, but wanted to see how this scaled up so on Shoot to Thrill by AC/DC I got them as high as 12 noon before my ears said 'enough'. The headphones could hand the volume, my ears could not.

I put my valve amp up up to 5pm, max volume, with the cans off my head sitting on the shelf. Clear and clean like a speaker. I never listen to anything above 10am when I have the cans on my head, so this was waaaay louder than I would ever listen.

So, yeah, these would be a great pair of cans to rock out to at maximum volumes.

Don't expect any finesse or subtlety, however. cool.gif


Thanks for comparing these to S500, which I enjoy. But the S500 have quite much leakage. How it the leakage one these?

Would these be a good beater pair for when I can't/don't want to use my NAD Viso HP50's?  Of course I'm not expecting the same sound quailty, I just don't want a massive difference.

To answer ur question yes they are good beater headphone. To answer ur statement, no theres quite a dffference imo. Their nowhere near as refined. Bass is looser, treble less extension and less control. Mids are more forward. Soundstage much more compressed

In a nutshell the hp50 are 2-3 leagues above.

Theses monoprice are good for their price but they can compete with ur viso

Three questions:

How they compare with in ear headphones such as the Vsonic GR06?

 

Can a sansa clip plus drive those headphones?

 

Does anyone know of a seller that offer international shipping in a decent price?

The only thing I can answer is that the Sansa can drive these.

to answer #2 (these guys can easily run off that i imagine) just needs a bit more volume! same with off my ipod touch 4th gen

 

3) you can just purchase them off www.monoprice.com the shipping i thought to canada was pretty reasonable. how much does it say for you?

About $40.

I got these cans and put on some velour pads and a headband cover (for comfort). The new ear pads are somewhat larger and WAY more comfortable. The bass and clarity was improved in my opinion. I now hear sounds that I was unaware of with other phones. Ambient background sounds especially.
