Ya, I've been very interested in the closed back model but I live in Canada and they are impossible to purchase online as the US distributer won't ship here via Amazon but suggested sending a money order which is a PITA. I checked Sound magic's site and looked up the Canadian distributer but , unbelievably, he has no online ad nor an email address! Google searching the distributer name has only one result and that is back to the Soundmagic site I got it from. Its actually some house in a suburb of Calgary. I emailed Soundmaic , telling them they could make some cash if people could buy their product w/o having to snail mail or long distance call some guy in Calgaryconfused.gif. Sorry for the rant but it blows me away how difficult this is when it shouldn't. Too bad.frown.gif

They are still a medium sized company at most

Here is some love for SoundMAGIC... I just got my pair of HP200 in for review (from hifiheadphones) and I am loving the sound so far! For anyone wanting to jump on these you will still have to be a bit more patient as they're still not in stock anywhere in the UK quite yet. 

 

I have the Beyer DT880/600 and AKG Q701 sat here waiting to compare to the HP200. Trying to source a Senn HD650 too. Full review coming in a few weeks (have a few more things to get through yet).

Those are very well regarded headphones to compare another headphone to, if the HP200 performs close to that sort of standard, I will be very interested!

Hey mrAdrian, yeah you are right, the holy trinity are a really tough act to follow. The HP100 had a sort of easier time by not being too closely compared to them, but it's performance is really something special. If the HP200 can deliver a similar level of quality to the HP100 then the German / Austrian crowd need to start worrying. 

 

I've been out socialising and going to the cinema this afternoon, but I am back listening to the HP200's now and I'm really enjoying them while  it pours with rain outside :). Oh and here is a teaser for some of the HP200's photoshoot that I started this morning...

Not yet sadly :-(
I'm still in touch with them, and as soon as any news comes in I'll let people know. I'm waiting for HP300, PL60, PL80 and A20.

I'm not sure how long I can wait to hear them lol.  What kind of price point do you think they'll be around?

Comparisons between hp100 and hp200?
 

post #29 of 91

I was finally able to get the HP100 shipped to Canada from Hong Kong and I am very pleased with the purchase. I've heard that us in Canada can now get them via Amazon.com if any fellow Canadians are interested. Having the V Moda M80s and really liking them, I was interested in a more at home pair of full size and these didn't disappoint. The HP 100 that is. Despite really liking the M80 , I wanted something a little more detailed/less warm awith bhrighter treble and these delivered in spades. Lots of detail yet they are not harsh at all which Id imagine to be tricky thing to get. They also have far more sound stage with every note having its own space which only makes it more detailed. Perhaps what impressed me most was the sub bass. I can hear a bitof sub with the M*0 but these you can feel it! If there is one area I would improve it would be a little more meat in the lower mids, thats about it. Ive never heard the perfect headphone but these really get close, and I cannot help but thinkperhaps if there were more meat to the lower mids that I wouldn't be getting as much of the details I hear. Headphones are a balance of properties and finding the perfect balance is incredibly difficult....I'd like to read a comparison of the HP100 vs. HP200 also.

Dale thorn has both. If you look on his video review on YouTube I asked him to compare the hp100 and hp200 ( and Phillips fiedlio l1) it was very helpful
