Any reason to ignore the review I linked-to and freq-resp graph I provided from it in this thread?
 

Sorry to have missed referencing it.  I have read through the thread but it was some time ago.  

 

My main point was to draw attention to similarities/differences to other headphones' frequency responses.  To do that, I have to find measurements done with the same setup and hopefully the same tester.  I don't like to mix graphs from different places (HeadRoom, InnerFidelity, various review sites).  

 

EDIT:  Did a Google search of the lesnumeriques.com website -- cool site.  It doesn't look like they have tested the M100s yet, which are the cans I'm familiar with that also have a recessed midrange.

Booooo!!! LOL ;-)

 

Let us know of your impressions in a few hours once your ear/brain settle in. I believe I've seen you in other "bassy" headphone threads so I'm pretty sure you can easily weigh in with comparisons to other headphones (and what you like/don't like, etc).

 

Thanks!

first of all they have far less bass emphasis than m80s for example.

post #380 of 500

i wonder where that praised layering and imaging is in my set!? even the ue6000 do a better job in portraying distance.

post #381 of 500

Are you sure you have the Pro 500s and not the 400/300?!? lol

I had the M80s (and the M100s for the matter...) and the Pro 500s are definitely more powerful in the low-end region than the M80s.

 

Could it be fit issues? (these Yamaha's are GINOURMOUS!!!)

post #382 of 500

nope, fit is (too) tight and isolation is ok. so i do get a seal. tomorrow i get a pair of m100 again. so i will do a shoot out and maybe write a comparison. i wish i could get the fit of my mdr-1r, the sound of the ue6000 and the soundstage, separation and imaging of the srh940 all in one headphone.

one thing to note that I am sure you are aware of is that sometimes it takes a while to get used to a new sound signature.

 

look forward to reading your comparison. if you could throw down the m100 vs pro 500 vs ue6000 vs mdr-1r that would be a very fascinating read. the only other headphone I would want to add to that mix of $300ish closed bassy headphones would be the ultrasone pro 900.

How odd. My PRO 500 walked all over my UE6000 in every conceivable category..

post #385 of 500

i think i have to try t70p someday 

post #386 of 500

Hey guys, it would be highly appreciated if you'll give me some input on DT-770 80 Ohm and Yamaha PRO 400/500 compare?


That's not more about the price rather than very well articulated punchy basses and closed-back / least sound leakage since I want to go gaming at night with them when my wife sleeps next to me.

 

So, DT-770 vs PRO 400 vs PRO 500?

post #387 of 500

beyers! just because of better soundstage and imaging.

post #388 of 500

Thanks man, will someone else give any comments on this one?

post #389 of 500

From my experience the best noise-suppression (both from outside and from inside) are provided either by Sennheiser HD 280 Pro or HD 380 Pro, both are very good monitor headphones, with EQ the bass is there, clean and tight, but them both have huge true-round-the-ear circum-aural pads, that isolate very well, in my opinion those are your best choices, and those are very affordable, NewEgg (no tax for NY state) or Amazon. I use mine HD 280 PRO for movies and gaming (too flat for music listening) , and Yamaha 500 PRO for music listening (too dramatic for gaming or movies, explosions will rip my head off !!! :-)

While they isolate well, the tradeoff is the vise-like clamping force that gave me a headache after a short time with the HD380.
