Right now it's heads down for Uni work hah. Then I have a bunch of gear on me atm that I have to actually review so I can sell it :P

 

But when the dust settles as far as open headphones go I'd really like to try the Beyerdynamic T90 or the Sennheiser HD700 :3

Hey everyone, after reading alot of positive impressions of the Sony Mdr-ma900, i have decided that these are going to be mine! :p

Also a little influenced by ''Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide'' as it seems to be exactly what i am looking for.

 

However as i was scouring webshops, i noticed something strange about how the Sony MDR-Ma900 is listed in the few webshops that have it in my country..   

They are listed specifically as this: Sony MDR-MA900 B-STOCK.

 

I havent noticed the mention of ''B-STOCK'' anywhere else....   does the imply anything??? Or is it safe for me to go ahead and order them??

 

 

This is my first post on these forums and i'm pretty new to all this so sorry if i'm asking a stupid question ^^;

Thanks alot for that info! It was kind of what i was assuming but its very nice to know precisely :).

 

B-Stock might have nothing wrong with it but still id rather have them completely new, guess ill have to search a bit longer and find some new ones.

 

Thanks again!

Guys, I was just wondering what you guys thing the best dac/amp set up for these?  I just ordered a modi and magni (though it won't ship for a while).  Preferably a brighter amp.

post #442 of 1298

They will sound good from just about anything including phones and ipods. Just don't overamp it and you'll be fine. 

post #443 of 1298

So only minimal improvements?

I found the Magni did pretty well on them, but I found the Hifiman EF2A a noticeable step up from the magni in basically every way once the tubes burn in.

 

The improvements were quite noticeable imo.

I have used an old Ibasso d10 and a Fiio E17 on them, and it does add a little bit...especially the Fiio with its individual tuning of bass and treble. But its not a huge upgrade over my macbook pro output or iphone output really.

Just a heads up -

 

Don't remove the resistor network, or else your MA900s won't work with the new Schiit Vali amp.

 

Of course, that may not be a problem for you if you never want to use that amp (or other higher output impedance amp).

Alright.  Nice to know.

Ah I see, I don't find the MA900s dark to be honest. They also sound noticeably fuller when amped. Honestly despite these being efficient and low-ohm headphones, I think they should be amped otherwise they sound thin and a bit dark in the treble.
