The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 475  

post #7111 of 21760

Yay the XBA-40 and AD900X have arrived!

 

The box for the XBA-40 is so, so, so much nicer than the XBA-4.

Make sure it's virtual green tea and I'm in.


@MuppetFace

Have you tried playing around with EQ or maybe hooking it up to something that's known for sounding overly warm and lush? Heck, find someone with a JDSLabs cMoy and see if turning on the bass boost fixes the anemic bass problem. By the way are we talking anemic bass as in lower line Grado headphones, the bass can punch but has no authority sort of deal?

Okay I can say within just a short A/B that there HAS been a subtle but significant tuning change from the XBA-4 to the XBA-40.

 

I'm not sure though that this change will make anyone who didn't like the XBA-4 like the XBA-40 lol.

A tea party with the silent one. Sounds kinda zen.

Main deal breaker for me was the metallic ringing, if they fixed that I might be interested, if they didnt fix that then no deal. Strangely I have also noticed metallic ringing on some Audio Technica full size headphones, mabe this is some kind of Japanese fetish biggrin.gif

The bass actually isn't anemic or lacking in quantity for me. My problem is a quality thing: it sounds one-note, flat, etc.

Like a boss!

 

I've gotten an offer to hear the 1Plus2 this month, and your review has me all excited over the prospect. Nice work.

Trouble is I don't even know if it will be today...

Oh I intend on having quite a few laughs over tea (or coffee) when Silent comes home... punctuated by the occasional fistbump.  smile.gif

Maybe the theme's going to be what reminds you of school/learning?
post #7122 of 21760

Or on a more personal level, perhaps the thrill of falling for someone new?

Here are some very early TH600 impressions from yours truly: http://www.head-fi.org/t/631594/fostex-th600-dynamic-headphones/375#post_9215527

 

I think in general I'm really starting to drift away from full-sized headphones these days. I'd just rather listen to IEMs.
