Sennheiser Amperior Appreciation Thread - Page 31

post #451 of 722

I bought the Amperiors for $168.44 in Canadian dollars at BestBuy a few days ago when they're on sale. I gotta admit, they're worth the money in a long-run and it actually sounds better than the HD-25's imo.

Another user posted this in the deals thread but you can pick up the silver Amperiors from Newegg for $130 - 10% off using code MBLNOV24 at checkout (expires tomorrow 11/24 at 11:59PM).

 

http://promotions.newegg.com/nepro/13-5719/index.html?SID=2OB4MFTNEeOkqNpHTkpJrQAlC3_CYjo3_0_0_0&AID=10440897&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=

 

You have to use the mobile website (aka smartphone/tablet) to get it to work but I was able to get it to work on my computer using the User Agent Switcher Add-on app on Google Chrome after a few tries (website was being finicky at first).

 

 

I actually picked up the blue Amperiors a few days ago from VMinnovations for $155 and was so impressed that I decided to get another silver pair as backups.  Came out to $125 shipped after California tax.

The HD25 also has different earpads from the Amperior and the HD25 - they are a pleather which is apparently more supple. So I would expect them to achieve a better acoustic seal.

 

I am really wanting to get my hands on an Alu Ed. just so I can decide whether to keep the Amperior or the Alu Ed. Then I will anodise the silver cups gunmetal :D

 

 

I want to do this too but the anodizing company asked if they were already anodized. I assumed that they weren't because it isn't as obvious as the blue ones. Does anyone know if the silver is anodized or if it just straight aluminum?

 

 

I will call the guy and  update him to see if it can still be done. BTW, if anyone is in the Anaheim area I found a guy that will do it for $15 off the books. 

 

Thanks!

I just got my Amperior and i looove it:)

This is truly legendary.. Blowing up my mind!!

One question,

Has anyone changed cable on Amperior

with a cable clamp set from HD25?

I have a Oyaide cable and realized i need a clamp set to

get this done..

I see some people talked about it but i don't see anyone

who actually posted after doing it themselves.

So does the cable clamp set fit on Amperior?

Thanks:)

I have changed the cable on my amperiors and the cable clamp fits it perfectly. Nothing to worry about.

Edit nevermind. Does anybody know where I can buy a clamp set in the U.S.A.?

 

I'll looked through Sennheiser's parts store, but not listed under HD-25 for some reason... Should I just call them up?

I live in Canada but i ordered that clamp set from http://spares.sennheiser.co.uk/pro-audio-headphones/hd-25-sp-ii/hd25-cable-clamp-set.html

I took a look at other websites too but they are over priced... It is like $2 but the shipping cost was like $10. Why dont you order something else with a clamp set so that you can make the beat out of shipping cost like i did?

I hope it helped:)

Normally I wouldn't bother with this kind of thing for a portable can, but the Amperiors are worth it. I'm rocking out on these tonight with the X3. So good, OMG.

 

My LCD-2/HE-500 are watching me thinking WTF? You're home now son you need to put us on... LOL.:D

There is something addictive about the Amperior once you get over the clamp.  My M-100's haven't been out for a while but when I get home it's all about the Philips Fidelio X1.

Love my amperiors, my cable that attaches to the mini cable thats on the headset is intermittent. Wondering if anyone else has the same issues?

post #462 of 722

I switched out that crappy extension cable for some cables that came with my Shure SE530. Much better now. Sound improvements? Questionable. But I like what I hear. It didn't effect it negatively at least.

post #463 of 722
I switched out the thin oem cable with the shure se530 cable too. I find the cable thickness a nice length and diameter for the amperiors. I've been using the combination (amperior with se530 cable) for a month and find that the se530 cable went intermittent on me. Is it the amperior doing all the damage to the cables?? I take great care of my headphones and I never had such a problem before. I'm waiting on replacement cables to come in from Sennheiser canada so I hope the new cables can at least last a lot longer than a few months.

Hey guys taking advantage of the Amazon deal on the Westone 3s, I'm curious to know if their sound signature similar to the Amperiors? I love that extra thumpy bass especially while on the bart/train, etc. Would you recommend it? I have no experience with IEMs.. Thanks.

post #465 of 722
W3 not the same as Amps. W3 less up front and distinct mids, phat bass, but with less crunch up top. None of the universal iems from westone sound like the Amps, imho
