Well, I'll go ahead and admit that I have shamelessly created an account to post this question... hope I'm not rubbing anyone the wrong way by doing so. >_<<br />
In anycase, here's my issue:
I have been using a pair of ATH-Pro700mk2 for about a year, and I have had a very pleasurable listening experience thus far, at least in my opinion. (Do note that I lack any comprehensive understanding here.)
However, due to wear-and-tear, especially regarding the rubber pads on the sides facing out of the headphones, I now prefer to listen to them at home.
Erm, I'm attracted to the Tracks HD for their looks. And yes, I do know that they aren't exactly audiophile-worthy headphones, and that they are over-hyped accesories that are comparable to Skullcandy and Beats by Dr. Dre...
So basically, I've actually already had my mind made up.
However, my issue here, is that I have pretty much no idea as to how the Tracks HD sound, at least in comparison to my current pair of cans.
I do not have the option of trying them out as the headphones aren't exactly widely available (at least not yet, for now) in stores throughout my country (Singapore), so yeah, it would be appreciated if someone could make a comparison between my current headphones and the Tracks HD.
I do understand that the Tracks HD will probably never measure up to my current pair of headphones.
I also understand that they do not provide the uncoloured ideal audio experience that artists want us to listen to. (Sorry, but I fail to appreciate this..)
- Extra Info -
I'm not exactly an audiophile like you guys, but I do use lossless files, for the most part. (FLAC CD rips, to be precise.)
I'm currently using a Galaxy Note for listening to music, but I'll be switching to the Galaxy Note 2 next month. To my (limited) knowledge, the Note 2 features a Wolfson (rumored) audio chip as compared to the original Note's Yamaha audio chip... (Wolfson > Yamaha? I think you guys know better. >_<)
I listen mainly to J-pop, Anime Soundtracks (Basically quite a lot if genres here...), along with some K-pop. (Yeah, I'm part of the younger crowd, though more towards the North Asian side.)
I do have a preference for punchy bass, perhaps even to the point of exaggeration.
I do not use a line-out (if there even is one) for my phone/listening device.
I use PowerAMP, but with DSPmanager instead of the built in EQ. (Doubt it can compete with portable amps, but I don't actually use high-end stuff... so yeah.)
Well, thanks for reading! Sorry for this absurdly long post of mine.
Uh, any reply/help provided would be greatly appreciated!
I apologise in advance if my post is in the wrong section. >_<<br />
Thanks again, for reading.
PS: Sorry for the lack of formatting, I'm currently on my phone now... so yeah, it's kinda messy.
