NuForce HP-800 ???

post #1 of 176
Thread Starter 

Hello.

 

Did a quick search and didn't see anything regarding this offering from NuForce!

 

http://www.nuforce.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&layout=item&id=311

 

Will they be as bright as their amps?

Will they be neutral-ish?

 

I'm slightly interested... (still use their Icon HDP DAC/Amp).

they look kinda awesome ... very different in shape and design but still simple and elegant...

not to mention the soundmagic hp 100 and hp 200 have been getting a lot of love lately ..

It seems they might be more neutral-ish so it probably falls in the Shure SRH940/KRK 8400s category of cold/treble-happy headphones... Still, I'm somewhat interested!

not heard the kns 8400, but the srh 940 is the best sound I've heard .. amazing headphones .. can't believe Shure made something so awesome for half the price of their other unworthy flagship - SE-535

Their first over ear headphone. I wonder how they compare to the AKG K702.

Oh I do like the look of these. Something seems very familiar about them though.

OEMs you mean?

Yeah. I'm sure I've seen this design elsewhere. Just for the shell at least. Who knows what's going on in the interior.

The proportions and design look similar to some of the Audio-Technica stuff, although without the "wings" on top

ATH-Esw9 with modified headband? 

post #13 of 176

Not even close. The ESW9 are far smaller.

It doesn't ring any bells to me (design-wise)... not that I like their looks anyway!! LOL
