Zazex, just watched your profile and basically not only you have/had almost all headphones mentioned on this thread but also you already had some of the Jones i would love to have por try one da wich are the m50, the k550 and specially the hd25.

But still you kept the jvcs and the v6...

Did like them more than any of the headphones you havê had so far?

Is it possible a brief comparing between all of this models and the koss too please please please? :-)

Only if you dont mind of course :-)


Thank you... :-)

 

Sure, I don't mind comparing some of them - to compare all of them

would be a tall order (I think you'd agree)!  But it's 446AM here, I'm

getting to bed now, so I'll do this in the afternoon.  In case I forget,

feel free to send me a PM reminder.  Cheers.

Thank you very much zazex. :) It is very kind of you. And sorry for the time, when i replyed your post it was already 9 am here... XD

 

Thank you very much once again. :)

 

 

To try to choose something we are not abble to try is very confusing, specially in the case of the shr 440 and the v6/7506 because they are meant to be the sime kind of headphones (flat) because they are made for the same purposes (mostly production). So it is ratther confusing when some claim that the shure are more musical than the v6 when they are both made for monitoring... XD

 

At least for me it is confusing because although i love headphones i am a complete noob when it cames to the technical stuff.... XD

Cheers....:)

Guys a little help pleasa. Just ordered a pair of v6 from amazon uk but i am affraid to get a fake pair. I ordered from a seller called mt. It has 98% postive ratings, but just about 300 or 400 coments about them. Still the order is fullfilled by amazon. Should i worry and get them from another seller like price grabber that has much more coments?
J
By the way, 49 pounds is expensive for the v6?

Cheers

Grado SR80i :) at $99, pretty decent performer. I say it comes about 75% of LCD2 in my opinion.

I'm not sure about the seller, but Amazon is usually pretty safe. 

 

49 pounds is about 75USD. The V6 in America is usually between 60 and 70USD.

Thank you very much thinkawesome.... 

It will be very bad if i got a fake one but i guess amazon has to have credible sellers or otherwise it would not be what it is today... At least thats what i want to believe in.... XD

 

Lets see.... I just hope i like my v6. Bought them for listening only and i am a bit affraid since some say they are amazing while others say they are boring and not for music listening. I just want good sound, good detail and clarity... Something precise anda i am really hoping to get that with these.... I really like my aurvanas and my akg's but they just sound a bit... muffled is maybe a bit too much to descbribe them but it seem there is some veil or some kind of texture that kinf of makes the sound have a bassy tone like "whoooooom" wich seems to kind of restrain the sound... I dont know... I am a noob... I just now i dont want this on my v6 and i hope i get something different from what i have.

 

Just one question... Right now my order says "Dispatching soon" and there is a option saying "request cancelation". If i suddenly decide to give up on the v6 can i still do it?

 

Thank you once again...

Hi guys.... :)

 

+1 for the Sony mdr v6's. Ordered yesterday from amazon uk and they were dispatched today in the afternoon.

 

Firs of all i would like to thank all of those that helped me on my choice... :)

 

Secondly i have a couple of questions about them and i hope someone can help me...

 

1- I ordered them from amazon from a retailer named Appods... Seem Legit right? (zombie i ended up cancelling my first order...)

 

2- Has anyone purcased a pair of v6's recently in Europe? wich is the time given for warranty purposes and what do we have to do to send them for repair?

 

3-(...For recent v6 buyers on amazon uk ....) Where were yours made (Japan, Thailand or other?)?

 

4- The differences in build but specially in sound quality between the "made in thailand" or "made in japan" version are very noticeable? (i saw noiseboy57's post on the second page of this thread but i wanted to get a bit more info specially in terms of sound quality... )

 

 

 

Hope anyone can help me please.... :)

Guys i am thinking of buying a new cheap pearl.... XD

 

Here's my new case....

 

As you know already have a pair of creative aurvana live!, a pair of Sony mdr v6 and a pair of akg k518dj (same as the k81's).

 

Being the worst of the three (Too much bass and too recessed mids and highs) my akg's have not been getting much action on the last months and since they are almost new i am planning on selling or trade them.

 

If i am going to trade i want to get something portable as well, This week i had 2 offers oftrade for my akg's... the shure srh440's and the Philips Uptown.

 

From what i have read the uptown's sound good and are amazing in build quality, design and confort, but it seems that the cable has ruined everything. I really like them but i also want to get something that will last at least for a year as a portable option. From some reviews i read some do not last even a few months because of the remote...

 

The srh440 seems like they sound good, are very well built, but are not very good for portable use and are very uncomfortable (also weird mids and some say they need an amp to make the bass shine).

 

Unfortunatelly i dont have any of these 2 in my country (Portugal) so i can only trust on the feedback i get.

 

So ....for someone who listens to all types of music (with a special emphasis on eletronica, house, progressive and trance) Wich one would you recomend?

 

Are any of these two a worthy replacement for my akg's or should i just keep the k518's?

 

All help is more than appreciated... :)

 

Thank you very much...

The Uptowns sound quite muddy in my opinion compared to the AKG K540 that I own. Shure SRH-440 definitely needs an amp, they don't sound good without one and they're VERY bass light imo.

Thank you dakanao...

 

So you would pass both the uptown's and the shure's and would stick with the K518's?

 

By the way how good are the K540? I can also get those for 35, 40 euros (used but in very good condition) but of course they are completely different from the ones i mentioned.... Just curious because i have a pair of K514 mk2 and although they sound a bit tiny. there is something about them that makes me like them. I remember trying the k540's a couple of months ago in a store and if i am not mistanken i really like them (i think it was because they had very clear and defined treble....)....

 

Cheers m8...

The K540's have quite good bass impact, extension and tightness. Their midrange is quite good aswell. High are clear and defined indeed, but they can be a tad harsh sometimes. They're really good for EDM music. Soundstage is not that wide, and imaging is quite good aswell. They sound quite thin though, that's why they're good for EDM.
