I mean, how big is the pad space.

 

 

Photos below - info following that .....

 

  

 

 

We bought a pair each for our kids.  Price was too good to turn down, and for the price, they're not 'terrible'.

 

  1. They are circumaural - the internal diameter for your ears actually looks quite small (55mm long, 40mm wide) - but they would fit me OK, and they are ideal for the kids smaller ears.
  2. They're not closed - actually semi open (note in 1st photo there is a gap right around the external cover)
  3. Bass isn't  well extended - it's mostly mid-bass, but saying that - it's not too bad.  Just a bit thumpy.
  4. Highs are airy with a bit of sparkle - but not really balanced with the mids - quite a bit of clarity though.
  5. Quite a strange sig overall - warm and bassy (mid-bass and lower mids) - but with just a little sizzle on top

 

Again - for the kids - they're surprisingly comfortable, don't sound too bad, and for the price are far better than el cheapo buds etc.

Funny, I was going to buy it for a young one too. Thanks for that info brooko, I'll probably get some.

ATH-AD300? I love this headphone! I got it at Wal-Mart for $35. Retails for $75. Much better than the AD700 to me. Fuller mids, more bass and less treble.

It even has a better fit.

 

Still need to try the A900X.. I swear that it's graphs looks like the M40. Probably not similar...

post #246 of 314

No, not AD300. TAD300

Popped up a few times now, and I agree fully. Especially when paired with a VAMP/Go-Dap 4

post #248 of 314

I've been think about getting these. Do they slip off easily though?

post #249 of 314

I don't see many people suggesting the a900x when people ask for suggestions in that price range. A few knowledgeable head fi'ers will recommend them (Mal, obobskivich), but they seem to be over looked often despite them being very good.

They get a fair amount of attention already. Don't think they are underrated, just only suited to certain genre's

K242HD? not too easy, but not for moving around.

but i really didn't like the TMA1 when i tried it at the shop...blink.gif

post #253 of 314

I bought TMA-1 Fool's Gold Limited Edition. But I have already sold it. I was so foolish....

A lot of Philips new line-ups are under rated like the Downtown and Uptown as well their new Fidelio line like the L1 (though Tyll did put this on his wall of fame) and the X1 (which i have and it is awesome)

Beyer DT150, from the reviews I've read it sounds better balanced than the DT770 or DT990 while having a better soundstage, awesome low bass impact without being muddy, really great midrange designed for voice intelligibility and good highs while not being as piercing as the DT990. Lots of people love it for movies as well as music. I might buy one at some point. Quick note: I meant better soundstage than DT770, not necessarily DT990.
