Alright, thanks!  I might have to give these a try to replace my HD595s seeing as how they're falling apart and I doubt Sennheiser will be much help in getting them fixed, at least not for cheap...and seeing as how they'll probably just end up falling apart again. :P

Great review Katun, enjoyed reading it. I need more info on the bass though, as it's the main aspect which is preventing me from buying these headphones and giving them a try. Do they have quantity and impact comparable to, say, the k550/q701 or the a900x which I think you also reviewed.

Hey, thanks. I apologize for not going into too much detail relating to specific aspects of the sound. I felt this review would be better off that way.

 

The K550 has got more bass presence (when properly sealed) and from memory, the Q701 has a bit less. I'd never label the MA900 has bass anemic. It's sorta like the HD598 and HD600's bass, but has more of a tactile feel. I find it easily one of the better presentations of bass I've heard in headphones. Would never recommend it for bassheads, but other than that, I don't think too many people would find a problem with it's bass amount.

Interesting thoughts.

I am pretty keen on getting these , I absolutely loved  them when I borrowed them for testing :D

There is something very 'right' about how the MA900 sounds, it reminds me of the brilliant cans you get that have amazing mids and highs but no bass, but the MA900 has the bass as well !!!

My current favourite open can, have given my HD600 away to my brother now.

Haha, interesting move. I haven't heard either one, but I'm in the market for a new open headphone.

What made you choose the ma900 over the hd600?

Soundstage is in a different league on the ma900 , also prefer the treble on the Sony.
