Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread - Page 35

post #511 of 1393

I can listen to pretty much all genres with them. My favorite would be material that shows off the sound stage. Classical music recorded in a concert hall will blow your mind. Jazz plays well on them. Willie Nelson recorded an album in a Mexican theater called Teatro, sounds fantastic.

Reggae is also surprisingly good.

Thanks. The picture was mostly to demonstrate the dual exit adapters. :biggrin:

Is there a time when you guys miss the lack of deep bass? I know we would be asking for too much if we have it all for $200 but just wanted to ask anyways.

post #517 of 1393
I'm pretty used to it with dynamics lacking sub bass in general, so not as much as I thought. But compared to a planar, yes. Still, the good qualities in the MA900 far outweigh what it's lacking.

So much bass is focused in the mid bass anyways...
post #518 of 1393

For me, it depends. I tend to listen with the ma900 a lot. When I use it for a while, I don't miss the sub bass too much. But when I switch quickly from the he-4 or hd650 the difference in sub bass is more apparent. 

 

Regardless, the Sony is a very good, musical hp.

^^GL...yes, it's old school. But I love the open source firmware and it's reliable.

WHO HASN'T OWNED THAT ROUTER? HAHAHA.

Mine died and I got something else, but my mom still has hers. I'll snap a seductive pic next time I visit.

Oh wait, I just remembered, hers JUST died a week ago. She needs a new router.

It's certainly lasted a looooong time.

Oh god. I just bought these headphones. I hate spending money, so these better satisfy me. I got them off eBay for $180 + free shipping, and it comes with a 14 day return policy if it turns out I don't like them. 

 

I can probably fix the bass detriment once I get to play around with them.

I wouldn't wanna do a bass mod, because that will undoubtedly mess with it's mids which I rather have than bass for this kind of headphone. Had a friend who swapped pads, that added bass but ruined the quality.
post #524 of 1393

You have to do more than just a pad swap if you want good bass. You'll see if you look at my little AD2000MKIV review down below (look at the pics). I've changed it since then, but the general layout is basically the same.

Ah, the best version! Easiest to flash with Tomato and DD-WRT. Amazing firmware. DD-WRT helped immensely when optimizing my network for gaming several years ago. Mine unfortunately was destroyed in a move. /tangent.
