I've given up on innerfidelity after all the negative remarks about Grado.

 

Tyll uses science.  I use my ears.

post #17 of 102

Both are interesting but i tend to prefer innerfidelity cause tyl videos are funny tongue_smile.gif.

 

Many time i don't agree with what reviewer says , mike from headfoni didn't like K70X at all and it's obvious , K550 reading him seams gold comparing to K701 . 

 

In the other hand tyl don't like T1 and found DT-48 colored ...

 

Everyone hear differently .

Inner Fidelity by far.  Tyll's opinions mostly jive with mine, and his preference towards a neutral to warmer sounding headphone over a brighter one is a good reference point.  Today's 'hi-fi' headphone world is plagued by too many bright headphones that try to shove every last bit of detail down your throat, even if it makes your ears bleed.

 

Inner Fidelity's reviews (at least when they're written by Tyll) are always consistent, and the measurements are top notch.  Headfonia's reviews are all over the place, hardly consistent, and extremely subjective.  I'd never once trust anything coming from Headfonia.

Innerfidelity and it's not even close.

 

Sorry Grado fans, Tyll's preference for warm sounding headphones with minimal ringing actually happens to fit with a sizable majority in this hobby. Beyond that, his articles are always well-written, witty and backed-up by raw data that, like it or not, gives his reviews a solid basis other than subjective opinion. 

 

Also Innerfidelity is my number one go-to for headphone buying and Tyll's reviews haven't let me down so far. I could never place the same trust in Headfonia, or indeed, a random poster on Head-fi.

Bigheadhifi, find me a review of anything that isn't biased and subjective. That's the definition of a review.

The more website of this kind, the better.

There's no point in choosing a single website.

Then you've found the perfect headphone website for you.  Congratulations!

 

No need to be sorry.  I trust my ears.  BTW, I'm under the impression that Grados sell pretty well worldwide.

So do Beats by Dre.

 

If you like modern Grados, then more power to you, but just because Tyll doesn't share that opinion doesn't mean Innerfidelity isn't a reliable resource for the hobby.

But you wrote: "Sorry Grado fans, Tyll's preference for warm sounding headphones with minimal ringing actually happens to fit with a sizable majority in this hobby."  Even Beats?

 

No, Tyll is not a reliable source for me.

You should get a load at their Edition 10 review.

that comes with this

edit addon: 

One of the aspect that I really like is the lack of grain in the sound, which is a total opposite of the HD800′s. Having no grain in the sound results in a very clear view in the music. 
-Mike @ Headfonia


 With every smack of the snare and blare of a trumpet my eyes wince in pain. Fast transient edges are transformed into indiscriminate micro-bursts of tizz. 
-Tyll @ Innerfidelity

That was hilarious.

Just different approaches IMO. Mike seems to look for the best attributes of a given headphone (like Jude does), while Tyl is merciless with his exposition of flaws. Both approaches are valid, and in the end the headphone consumer will hopefully makes his or her decision based on a gestalt of reviews, combined with an awareness of personal preference.
