Yamaha hph mt220 thread (Merged) - Page 19

post #271 of 3160

i wont use the word "sibilance" for this can, on my setup.... 

from ipad to sansa to audiogd to darkvoice to csp2..

and over diff pads, so far nothing piercing to the extent of being sibilant...like those on the akgs.

Just reporting from my side. 

 

(Maybe brighter upstream gears/or bright recordings might edge it towards that?  just a guess. :P)

real treat, this cd on the yamaha...like staring into the dark night, waiting for surprises to appear

from diff parts of the sky.

Good call on this one...Those bouncing airy bass shots Zimmer uses are actually really cool...THat's the first time I've heard anyone use something like that in such a way. The spaciousness on this album with this one is extremely smooth.

i am settling for this pad...the AT AD2000 suede pads that i happened to have in my drawer.

( aint that cheap on ebay..the original japanese imports, the china imitations are cheaper :P)

 

this pad makes the MT220 quite neutral sounding, more like a studio ambience..

(taking away the very very slight hall-ish presentation with the pleather pad)

 

=============

 

thanks Mustard, i went to check out what "bass shots" are on youtube, 

used in EDMs huh.. quite interesting, cos i seldom explore in that area.

Hello guys/gals.

 

So, a few weeks ago I had sent my headphones for measurements just for the heck of it since there seems to not be many of them on the net. And here's a "treat":

 

*Comparison with AT M50s... :)

** "Fat Pads" are MrSpeakers Alpha Pads

 

If you want more info and plots, let me know and I'll send you a link to them via PM. :)

 

 

Thanks.

Are you speaking about the Philips X1? These are open headphones right? I am not sure that comparing open and closed headphones will tell you much.

Yeah, the Philips X1. Well, they're in the same price range. Why couldn't they be comparable?

Open-back headphones and closed-back headphones are very different. So your question is a bit like asking how does a Porsche Cayenne compare to a Porsche 911.

 

To give you an idea, an open headphone will often sound closer to what you would hear from 1 meter (for the good ones :-) distant speaker when with closed headphones you will have the feeling that the sound is much closer. With the AT m50 for example, I "hear" the music right in my head. Here again, some people will like it, I don't.

 

However, if you are interested in specific characteristics of the phones, people knowing them might be able to help. Which one is more detailed. But the type of the phone makes a much bigger difference IMO. For example, don't expect big bass impact from opened cans.

 

If having open headphones can be an option for you (I state this because open headphones are not very flexible, the external sounds will irritate you if you are not in a silent environment, and you will annoy other people if they are in the same room) the amazingly good sounding (but fragile) Sony MA900 are available for 125 EUR on Amazon.de these days (I bought two for myself there :-).

 

Hope that helps,

 

Cheers.

switched back to the stock pads to get reacquainted with the stock sound, 

sounds huge , spacious and embracing, esp for pop songs from the 80s..

making me search thru my "old" cds for some fun!!

 

listening to RayCharles " I love u so much it hurts.." 

sounds like an open can..wide deeeep tall..maybe it is the recording,

but i have not enjoyed this song nor took notice of it until NOW.

This yamaha kinda bring the best out of obscure songs in my musicbox. :P

 

Stylistics. " Break up to Make up.."  same huge presentation..

MJ...like i am v near to him singing his heart out in "She is out of my life "

 

love this yammmahaaa

I need cans for gaming and rap/hiphop music. 

 

I like the sound signature of the X1 a lot, but they fitted awkwardly on my head, which in return gave weird imaging. So that's why I'm asking how they compare to the X1.

post #283 of 3160

Yamaha's have smaller soundstage, smoother treble, probably less bass..

And they feel heavier and have tighter clamp..

Get a Soundmagic Hp100..Better soundstage, similar treble, lighter, probably more comfortable, and isolates quite well. 

They too are less bassy then X1 though..

post #284 of 3160

on my head, hmmm...

i wont rate the yammie as a heavy or hardclamping can... contrary infact :)

the sound is spacious n huge for a closed can...relative to the other closed cans i hav.

post #285 of 3160

I can see the Yammies having clamping IF you have a huge rounded head... on my head it doesn't really clamp at all!
