Well, regarding the MM163.

 

- The earpads are very comfortable and it's by far the best ear-pads I've ever used. Better than any other model from Somic or even from Shure (I had the Shure SRH440 and 550DJ)

- The lows aren't punchy at all and aren't really there until you do some burn-in to it. It does requires a bit of amplifying as well, but in the end it's surely not bass focused. Though I do wish it were a lot more punchy.

- The mids and highs are where it does shines. It's a really damn great headphone for listening to rock music on the streets, though the it's obvious it'd be better if it were open.

- The cable that comes with it is a bit good, but it didn't lasted more than 8 months with portable use. Though I've gotta admit, I DID mistreated it a LOT. But since it's detachable, I didn't had to send the headphone to the trash bin.

- As it should be obvious since it's closed, the soundstage isn't good. But somehow, it's even worse than on the Shure SRH440...

 

Here's a video of it:

It's a good headphone, but nothing new there. It's a good rival to the Shure SRH440, but I wouldn't say it's better than it.

 

Now, as to why the PRO is more expensive, I don't really know. It shouldn't be better, really. I myself find the MM163 superior to both the EFI-82 and EFI-82 PRO, but I can't really say about the MT model.

 

 

And to tell you guys the truth, I'm quite surprised, since the MM163 is a good headphone, but it seems clear to me that not nearly as good as the MH463...

Maybe they went back to the drawing board with the MT, or perhaps I'm just hearing things. Hopefully, it's the former.

That's odd. The MH463 is a bit dark sounding. Perhaps they've added dampening.

Probably it has a lot to do with the idea of no sound going outside at all. You won't listen to a single noise of what I'm listening unless I put some ridiculously high volume.

 

It's a bit dark sounding really, but it's a surely not a good headphone when it comes down to Electronic Music for an example. But when it comes down to listening to the bass on some musics, it does shows up pretty well.

I thought that the MH463 handled Skrillex, Guetta, Daft Punk, and the Basement Jaxx pretty well. It wasn't "boomy", but the bass was present and right about where it should be.

Then it does seems like the MM163 and the EFI82 (at least the old model) are quite different from the MH463...

Wait, I'm really confused right now...


Which one is the better Somic Headphones?

I myself don't know, I'm surprised with the feedback I saw here for the MH463. Seems like that's the best headphone they have... And that's why I've already ordered one.

 

Their E-95 v2010 is one of the best headsets in the market, if not the best. But as you can all imagine, 5.1 surround headsets are very weak at clarity, especially when it comes to highs. But the bass is HELL punchy (which is something I like). Most of it is due to the subwoofer it has, but wait, it does shows real bass as well, there's not just vibration there.

 

But anyway, it seems the MH463 is better than the E-95 v2010 due to better clarity and soundstage.

 

As I was saying before, the soundstage on both EFI-82 (old model) and MM163 is quite bad. And yet again it seems the MH463 is better.

 

The G909 and G989 are just downright awful. I don't even want to comment much about them, they're just crap.

 

And the ST-1607, well, despite the ridiculous appearance, packs some punch for a US$ 7 headset, although the appearance is, well...

I'm sticking by the EFI 82 MT, for now. I'll listen more to it and the MH463 when I get back to my dorm room.

post #221 of 544

OK. I'm back at my dorm room, and the EFI 82 MT sounds every bit as great as I remembered it.

Perhaps it's the HM5 pads, or perhaps it was a revision, but these headphones are the truth, even after a weekend with the not-shabby DBI Pro 705.

God, those are sexy. And they look portable enough that I could wear them outside. And after I get beat up for looking so good, they would fit right in at the hospital! darthsmile.gif

Well, you haven't seen this atrocity then:

 

 

 

 

At least the pink one's confortable and doesn't weights 650 grams with a stupid-ass weight balance system that only hurts my head and makes me wonder if they weren't just trying to save up on leather.

 

This brand has some good things, but please, don't get disappointed if you try buying something "different" and buy one of their worst cans.
