Oh, the MT220 is definately comfortable :)

..and the bass, textured,

and he will feel like he is in the music :P

Hey guys, can any of you please compare the Spirit Pros and MT 220 straight from your onboard soundcard (without amp or DAC), and say which one sounds best?

 

The reason I'm asking is because I'm about to order the Spirit Pro's, but if the MT 220's sound better from your onboard soundcard (without amp or DAC), than I'll get those.

MT220 sounded great with all the portable devices I tested,  it also sounds fantastic even with my onboad ALC898..  just get the MT220, you won't find any better headphone in this price range.

Yeah, I can get the Spirit Pros for 49 euro's more. It's said that the Spirit Pros is smoother in the highs, and I don't like harsh uppermids/lower treble in the SLIGHTEST.

can't comment on Spirit Pros since I haven't heard them.  to me mt220 sounds like a $300-$400 option.. no joke..

I prefer this even over Senn 6XX, DT880/990/770/150, and many more... choice is yours, this thing is certainly a flagship killer to me..

are u able to audition it somewhere with your gears? or a return policy with the purchase?

i was in a shop with all three spirits when it first came out...didnt walk out with any.

Too distant a memory, (a year or 2 ago?) so i wont offer my feedback to be fair. :)

 

Maybe the synergy with my samsungfone , ipad or sansa didnt work out that well.. hmm.

i meant none grab me to the stage where i stood there for any extended period of time.

Yeah, I do have a 2 week return policy, but I can't audition the cans in person, because the local headphone store only has mainstream headphones like Skullcandy, Beats, Bose etc.

 

Sometimes there is an audiophile product in there, but it either needs an amp to sound good, or they sound mediocre on my phone.

Tough call that one. The spirits are supposed to be excellent but I've not heard them. They will be smoother up top from what I've heard but you may lose out elsewhere. I think you'd be happy with either

Had a great listen to Pat Metheny's Letter from Home with the MT220.  

The Yanahas sound smooth, expansive, transparent and detailed.  

Deep bass does seem to lack that ultimate extension and texture, but for the money, I have no complaints at all.

post #836 of 3140

personally I don't think you can get any better headphone with this kind of bass extension and deep texture in this price range (may be under $500), the 612pro is my other favorite which can render these low notes flawlessly. I still prefer MT220 more. 

 

try this track with MT220 :) (I have flac version and it sounds phenomenal with yammies)
