No prob.  Believe it or not, I'm still somewhat ambiguous as to how I feel about these.  It's really quite strange.  On one hand, I'm thinking "hmm, these aren't all that and a bag of chips..."  But the other day, someone asked if I'd be willing to sell them, and I kid you not, the following thought flashed through my mind:  " yeah you can have them when you pry 'em from my cold dead ears."  I wish I knew enough to mod them a bit.  If the soundstage were just a little bit wider, and it had a bit more sparkle and brightness up top, I'd be thrilled.

At the beginning they were quite tight and uncomfortable but they got much better in time.At the moment I prefer them to my beyerdynamics DT1350 that sounds very analytic (someone is going to blame me for this..i know :-))

 

There simply is no emoticon for this moment.

 

LOL, TBH I haven't spent a lot of time with the Mixrs so I wouldn't know.  And to be fair I have had some questionable cans in my youth (MDR-V150s - though it was the original one from the 80s and not the muddy mess they put out later).  Can't wait until your 591s arrive, you can add some fresh new impressions.  And maybe you and HiFiGuy can put up some 591 vs Mixr comparisons?

Wait, so is this going to be your first time with Beats so to speak?  Okay, this'll be interesting.

I had the Studio and the SoloHD at one point, but returned both in a matter of weeks.  I tried getting into them, I really did, but the sound signature was just way too unnatural for my tastes.  And the crazy bass hump had a tendency to make just about everything else sound a bit blown out.  For the amount of money they're asking for, they are either crazy or evil... and I don't think they're crazy.

they may not be audiophile headphones but people don't doubt my authority when I wear em'  L3000.gif

 

For what it is worth - the other day I tried my friends pair of solo's and I thought they weren't all that bad.  I found them to be quite pleasant to listen to (perhaps I don't care about accuracy as much as I thought). 

 

All I know is I hate bass bloat, but I like bass.  I like the pioneers for everything they are and the things they aren't I'm willing to forgive.  They are near perfect portables and I would not hesitate to buy over any beats headphone (especially if they aren't monster)

LOL.  Oh they're definitely not audiophile cans.  That's not a crime though, I'd wager that we all have a pair of fun basshead cans somewhere as a guilty pleasure (well maybe not those Grado guys on the other side of the forums).

What does bother me is that they CLAIM to be the best thing since sliced bread - and the masses who have never heard anything better than ibuds just jump on that bandwagon.  Their marketing is not unlike cult recruitment.  If people like Beats for what they are, that's great, free country and all, no problem with that.  But when people blindly like Beats because they have yet to hear anything better, that's just Beats taking advantage of their ignorance for profit, which sux.

I agree that for the most part Pioneer's getting it right when it comes to basshead cans.  The 721 is a great low-end offering, and the 751 kicks some serious ass.  Loads of rich bass without distortion and bloat.  And the more I think about it, the more I realize that the bass dial on the 751 is genius.  Real-time adjustment on-the-fly.  And- oh wait, we're supposed to be talking about the 591 right?  My bad.

I'm still waiting anxiously to hear about these monster cable experiments.

The cable arrived. I'll report back if it fits or not.

Anyone care to hazard a guess?  I say they'll fit, but stick out a little bit as to not be perfectly flush.

The other ring around the jack looks really nice. I really hope it will fit because the aluminum on the cable matches nicely with the 591. Can't wait to get home after work.

Hey it makes sense, you've got headphone guys, you'll obviously need a crew of shipping guys to transport them.  smile.gif

 

Are you gonna do an unboxing vid just for the cable?  Or pretty much just rip it open off-camera?

I'll post a picture of the new cable on the 591 so you can see if it looks good or not. I hope it fits. If it does I'll get the 7ft version as well.

I have some bad news to bare. The jack from Pioneer looks to be proprietary. The Monster Cable did not work. It's not long enough to fit inside the ear cups. frown.gif

Hmm, I'll bet it fits in the 751 though.  The shank for the 751's cable is much shorter.

Yeah it will fit the 751 so I'll use it on that. It's a real shame Pioneer was so stupid to make the cable like that. Here's the OEM part number for the stock cable.
No price yet.

PART DETAILS - WDE1418
