Is "live bootleg" a good live album?

Hey HiFiGuy, you didn't already crack it open did you?  Seems like the perfect opportunity for another unboxing vid!  smile.gif

Beats with a different shape. Noel Lee must be a basshead.

SE-MJ591's are on sale for 149.99 at Best Buy and have been for a while now. 

 

I own a pair and love them.  I got them based of HiFiGuy's review - though I would not pay more than 149.99 for them.  At that price they beat the socks off of beats :)

 

I love the isolation and sound signature...  its a fun portable that looks serious and is well built.

that's a great price.  I paid a lot more for mine.

They are well built and have a musical and appealing sound character but it you looked under the hood, no way would you think they listed for $299.

Well I just got this earlier in the day and so far had them burn in for 5 hours before I took a listen. So far I like them better than the Sennheiser HD 360 Pro(which maybe rebranded PX360), in terms of comfort. As for SQ I found the 360s to better in the highs, while so far I prefer the 591 for everything else. I have also found the bass on these to actually be less fatiguing too. I also tried out a pair of Pioneer HDJ500, which I really liked in terms of comfort(though the cups did get a bit hot) and looks. However, there was something about the SQ that didn't sit right with me, I think it was in the bass and treble balance that I couldn't get into. I did give a listen to the P3, and liked the fabric cups, and lighter weight better, but I didn't get a good chance to really see if the SQ was for me or not.

 

If I paid the actually $300 these are retailing for it would be a pure no(as in out of budget for me, nor does it sound like it's worth $300), but I got them $150 at Magnolia. So far they could be a keeper, but more testing, and burn-in is needed before I decide if they are really for me or not. 

 

Another question I just saw HiFimans vid comparing 591 to the P5 and the Focal Spirit. Now the question is if I am looking for something for home and light travel would the Focal Sprits be the better all around choice? How would you compare sound stage, balance, and how natural(i.e close to what the artist intended) vs the 591? I ask because I noticed Amazon has open box models for less than 591 cost. Thanks.

Spirit One is a nice headphone. Smooth response, full bodied, more bass presence and more spacious than the 591. Folds up nice for travel.
