Well you definitely have to go higher up the price scale. (Sony7520 & Vmoda m100 & Audio Technica es10)..

Yeah, not in that price range. But there's also the fact that the Onkyos are incredibly clear in spite of their powerful bass, which a lot of headphones cannot claim - especially in that price range.

I am in complete agreement.  For me, the clarity of the sound is the main thing that separates the Onkyo's from the competition.  I love my P5's, and I love my FC300's (funky connectors and all)...I love my Mikros 90's,  Three totally different approaches to headphone design and sound signature, but all equally good in their own way.

Well, except that the M90s slowly try to kill you with discomfort, but they do have a good sound if you can keep a seal.  It's like a tiny leather clad vice that pours beautiful music into your ears to distract you from the eventual skull crushing.

I actually did try them on and I didn't find the clamp that bad - though I didn't wear it for an extended period of time. Not really sure where the M90 segway came from, though.

Someone brought it up.  I do have a big head however, so for me, the headphone does come with discomfort.  Never really given it much of a try because of it, but did put it on for a lil bit after I wrote that comment just to make sure I wasn't misremembering.  Switched to the FC300 halfway through an album for comfort's sake.  It did sound better than I had remembered though.

I have both the m100 and hf300...I don't know that the m100 can get as deep and/or have the same quality at those depths. However, during my general basshead moments, I still reach for the m100s naturally.

I haven't directly compared bass levels but I do feel the Onkyo has a much more accurate presentation.
The m100 does have a sweet signature for basshead type music.

anyone here know where to get a pair of the white onkyos? that ships to canada at least =( up here all i find is like $181 which is insane compare to the deals you get just south of the border in the states.

 

or if anyone is willing to trade for a pair of sennheiser momentum on ears (in black) i'm game =)

I've just received these in post (thank you Maxx134). I just had quick listen while having a walk during lunch break and boy they are good.

I would say this is my best audio related sting I've got this year, but I've also bought X5 and D1K last month ;) My wallet is so sour now

Eagerly waiting for them to arrive. Plan to use them as portable cans. How do they compare to my home cans, the DT 990?

post #207 of 258

Just got them and holy sh*t, they're good. If someone finds ear pads that fit them, I'd be REALLY tempted to replace my DT 990 with those.

Unless those DT990s are still in a return window or you've wanted to sell them, I wouldn't do that. I think the DT990s will be more comfortable for extended listening sessions - and they're open, so wider soundstage. Not everyone digs that, though (I've seen someone who thought the Koss ProDJ100 (or 200?) was better than the Sennheiser HD 600 (or 650?). Very subjective, but I think if you don't mind having two pairs of headphones, having one specifically for home use would be nice.

 

Although I love the Onkyo headphones. Sometimes I use them if I just want to lay my head on a pillow and listen to music. My IEMs do that job, too, but the Onkyos are far more neutral.

I like mine. Comfortable and the sound is very good, IMO. Pleasant surprise.

I've just gotten the headphones. Amazing sound for the price. First impression, better than Sennheiser Momentum and V-Moda M100 despite lower price. Good sub-bass extension compared to mid-bass centric Momentums. Great for EDM. Will write more later.
