Another shootout/roundup coming soon!
I will be writing another set of reviews in the next few weeks. It will feature "Mid-sized" headphones, some Supra-aural and some Circumnaural. This time around I definitely do not have the resources to acquire my own review samples so several manufacturers have been kind enough to send them to me. And I am waiting to hear back from others. I will probably use the Denon AH-D1001 as my benchmark, even though they are discontinued (although readers should get some insight as to the SQ of the CAL! since they share the same drivers). I will also include in the review my Fischer Audio FA-004 even though I have had them for a while (this will also help readers who may be looking at the Incipio F38 or Brainwavz HM-3). I will also include the Eskuche 33i, even though I much prefer the ultra-compact Kassette model from my last review. In addition to those three, I will be receiving review samples of the following:
German Maestro GMP 160
I am still awaiting word from at least a dozen or so other manufacturers to see if they are willing to participate.
You can be sure I will continue to be objective and unbiased in my reviews. I feel strongly that comparison reviews are the most valuable. Many stand-alone reviews, while useful, seem more like advertisements for the manufacturer.
So, does anyone have other recommendations for headphones that should be included in this review? My only criteria are:
Less than $200.00 MSRP
I would aprreciate your input/suggestions!
