Sony MDR CD3000 (horrible) - Page 2

post #16 of 21

Yes, have the same issues with the Q010. The fit sucks. I have a loose sweatband I wear over them to 'enhance' the experience....

What gave you that impression :D

 

My comment was about how they would hold up. The joint for the head cup swivel seem to be a weak point. Mine do make some noise but I really hope that won´t be an issue. Otherwise they are as new except from the smallest nic on one of the leather ear cups from some tape. But that´s okay because it´s not like I am going to sell them.

 

They are very different to CD 3K so it´s kind of impossible to compare. I love how they complement eachother.

I'm trying to imagine what other headphones you have tried/owned that could possibly lead you to the conclusion that the CD3000 is anywhere close to neutral.

Because they are?

They're "flat" if you insist on being completely technical, but a flat plot before HRTF correction is neutral, and that's how they measure.

I've given some rare thought to this quest and have decided to abandon the CD3000.  Time to restrain Sony's magical powers and look elsewhere for audio enlightenment.
