Anyone know how these compare to HE-400's?
I'm really curious about these.
I was looking at a German forum (via google translate) and I've found some graphs if anyone interested.
Edit: That person did a little mod too..
PS.I wan't to order them tomorow via amazon...it will be around €232 with regular shipping....
On the product page it says €198, but on the checkout it is €207, plus shipping...still good price though.
I have absolutely no experience reading the last graph but doesn't that look horrible? I know my k550 had those 'things' these phones have in the low end. Only they had it in the high end and they sounded horrible.
Is this true? Or is this very good?
Edit: Holy smokes that is truly a pain to read (german to dutch)
Doesn't keep up with faster music as well, bass is slower and fuller and not as tight, midrange isn't as forward. None of what I mentioned is a bad thing though since this is my favorite open dynamic headphone I've had. Stage is amazing and beats the HE400's. Quite different sounding to one another to own both.
Graphs can give an approximate picture about the signiture, but the most common oppinion is to trust your ears, not (just) the graphs.
Well one very important thing to read a frequency response graph is experience with other headphones and their graphs.
This is a website with alot of fq graphs. http://www.headphone.com/learning-center/build-a-graph.php
I just listened to alot of headphones and kinda compared the fq graphs. The graphs don't really tell how a headphone sounds! But one thing you can check is for example: I don't like too much treble so any treble peaks probably mean the headphone is a no go for me.
I found this article to be quite informative:
Oh my...This is going to be a long a** week...I got a message from amazon.it, that it will arrive on Jan 4th (via Deutsche Post DHL, so probably from amazon.de)
BTW the price has gone a bit lower today, now it is €186....if only I would have been a bit more patient....
Good morning to everyone,
I'm Italian and I can buy this X1 by Amazon at 186€ shipping included. I only use the PC to see movies and some music.
I have to choose the soundcard and the ampli (if needed). Which soundcard and (if necessary) ampli do you suggest?
A Xonar Essence STX? Another card (Forte? D2X?)
Thank you very much
