After reading this review, I was very interested in these headphones. They sounded perfect! Or as close as I could get to my wants and needs. The only problem is that they seemed to be impossible to find. I looked everywhere and could'nt find these things. But then I stumbled apon a thread on reddit 8 days old saying that the new version of the FA-011 will be shipping within the next couple weeks from http://www.noisymotel.com/ and www.topdogheadphones.com. So there's a chance I could get my hands in these headphones after all!
Now before I started looking into these, I was looking to buy a pair of HE-400's. I was also looking at the Mad Dogs, but based on some posts that I read, the HE-400 seemed like it sounded more fun (more bass and a bit more sparkle in the treble) while still having great mids. I already own an Odac, and recently bought a Magni amp (O2 was to expensive). Now I have more money to buy a pair of headphones. So if anyone has experience with these two headphones I would really be interested in hearing your thoughts on which one you liked better and why.
Also if you could be more specific and compare their bass, mids, treble, and soundstage/instrument seperation to one another that would be awesome.
Suff about me. The music I listen to is rock, alternative, orchestral (love those OST's), and electronic and budstep. I will be using these at home on my laptop for music/movies/and gaming. I don't care for privacy/isolation.
Hope you guys can help me!
