Hmm @Coq de Combat (hey when did tagging get impemented?) me thinks you should actually try the Beats Studio 2013. They actually have a similar sound to the UE6000 without being nearly as sloppy. Or heavy.

Gadolinium is particularly suited for female volcals - especially (wait for it) Sopranos...
I don't know what's more disturbing - that you know what a fleshlight is, or that I know what you are talking about.

I'm fairly sure Ultrasone holds a patent for Gadolium headphones with penguin leather earpads. Apparently it was going to be very mid-heavy and somewhat lacking on the top.

 

As for fleshlight, oh come on, if diamonds are a womans best friend...

I've been waiting on you to suggest beats to me. You like them, and we have been trying fairly similar headphones lately. I am interested in them, perhaps mainly to see what all the fuzz is about, and yeah, you gave your a_pproval.

 

Not this month though, and possibly not next month either, or even the one after. I've already purchased XB-910, HP-800, UE6000, Denon D400, Denon C300, XB90ex and FiiO E18 (had I bought everything in Sweden, I'd end up around $1500 for the lot). This january. It's time to put a lid on this bin for a while now.

How did you like the Denon C300s?

Personally, I LOVE them, usually use them with the Vita and cell... bassy as heck but not muddy at all.

Hello MF,

 

I read your awesome review of the K812 and I've stalked you here to your lair. Haha.

 

So I sold all my heavy cans today (LCD-2/HE-500), because I wanted to move away from a desktop set up and go completely portable.

 

I'm trying to decide between the K812 and the Signature Pro. I searched this thread and found that you consider the Sig Pro to be the best closed/isolating headphone on the market right now (?)

 

I'm also thinking the K812 is the superior headphone, but is the difference vast enough that I should give up the isolation/portability of the Sig Pro. Like... is it worth it in your opinion? What are some notable differences that come to your mind, other than than the open vs. closed aspect?

 

Btw, I'll probably be driving either one with the new Fiio X5 or Ibasso DX90.

 

Thanks.

Oh, I haven't received them yet. I'm eagerly awaiting their arrival. They seemed to be in UK yesterday, but since I chose free delivery my best guess is next week. I'll let you know what I think of them when they arrive. Their fit seems a little intimidating to me. But oh well..

It really depends on what you want. Personally, I don't think an open headphone would ever really work out in a truly portable system, as in something you use on the go. Also if you need to listen in very noisy environments that's something to consider too. However the K812 would be a good option for something "transportable" that you take along when traveling, assuming you have a relatively quiet place to listen. Alternatively if you just want to have a light setup for your desktop without much clutter, the K812 plus an all-in-one (like a DAP or an amp / DAC combo hooked up to a notebook) would be a good choice.

 

That's more or less how I'm planning to use the K812: just put a Chord Hugo or something small on my desk to use with it and not have to fuss with a bigger system. Then if the mood ever strikes to take it to my office or on a trip, I can just pack it up easily.

 

The Signature Pro is a nice full-sized headphone if you have to have a lot of isolation, but even though it's quite ruggedly built, I wouldn't exactly cart it around with me everywhere because it's bulky. Same with the LCD-XC (another great closed headphone) which is even more bulky and very heavy.

 

Really when it comes to headphones I use actively on the go, I want something smaller and less fussy. I'll be posting a diary entry very soon that talks about my trying out some nice, [relatively] less expensive portables.

You should include the Spirit Professionals in your portable shootout

I'd hadn't been on here for several months and just saw your 2013, a nice sampling of psych albums! You might like some others from my psych list too:

I hope you include the DT1350 and the new T51p in your post. The DT1350 is tops in my book as far as portables are concerned the I'm curious about the new T51p.

Considering Beyer's outstanding QC, maybe I should give the DT1350 another go when I have the chance. The last time I tried it, I was pretty green behind the ears, and maybe I got some crappy chocolates from Beyer's box o chocos. Seeing you loving it that much DF, made me curious again.
