Searching for lightweight headphones and BT adapter with controls..

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

The title says it all, some years ago I had Sennheiser PX-100 in white, and loved them very much, but didn't have much listening time, as I'm more into speakers, then a headphones, so eventually I sold them because of that. As for today, I'm again into search, as I discover new stuff pretty fast, and want to listen on the go, what I want is, as much as possible lightweight headphones, preferable one sided cable, maybe with inline controls, but that work with android devices, I'm only interested in headphones, no earphones, or IEM, and for sure not full size headphones, as again I want them as much as light and comfortable headphones can be.

I remember that PX-100 was really comfy and they sounded so good, like orgasma for my ears, my only problem was, 2 sided cable, and afraid to destroy it, every time I put them in the case, they bundled with, now seems the new model fixed that, and has a better build quality, and sounds even better, when I tried some models back then in DJ equipment shop, I wanted the PX200, but lucky me, the salesman gave me the PX100 to hear, and WOW, I was speechless, the PX200 was nothing to compare (in the bad way), but dunno how the new model in terms of stage and bass? as for bluetooth adapter, I think I'll go for HS3000 by Samsung, I just get annoyed every time I want to change a track, I need to get my device from the pocket or my bag, and show off to people around, it has good review in most places, and has good clip to clip it to pants or a shirt. 

 

My equipment for now :

Galaxy Nexus GT-i9250 by Samsung

Nexus 7 3G ME370TG by Asus

 

I mostly need it for my smartphone, then the tablet, but outside I need the wireless solution in anyway, as the tablet most of the time stay home for my manga and reading need.

 

Any other recommendations are wellcome :)

what is the point of using normal wired cans with a bluetooth adapter? 

 

Are you going to roll up the wire and adapter and tape them to your headphones?

 

Get bluetooth headphones?

Price, quality, and the option to use headphones of my choice, and not, I will not tape it to the headphones, the HS3000 I looked at, has a clip, so I just clip it to my jeans or shirt. I don't put my phone in my jeens or closes at all, as I always go with a backpack, to the phone is there, in a pouch, to prevent scratches , I don't like to flash my devices around, and also, just to change a track, or lower the volume, get them out, it just so annoying.

I have the PX-100ii and they are decent. If you liked the first version, the revision is close to the same but with better build quality, more bass slam and single entry cable.

And how PX200-II compared to PX100-II ? I know they cost more, I never liked closed, neather IEM, it just lack the open sound I like from eatbuds and open/semi-open headphones, but still like to hear an opinion.

Also, any other recommendation for 3.5 mm bluetooth with controls, other then HS3000, that some here has.

never heard the PX200ii so i can't comment. from what i read, it's generally better then the old version. i don't use bluetooth so can't help on that front, either.

px100/200ii are well overpriced these days, my igrados sound much better than both (shame they leak sooo much!)

I think I'll go for the 200's, I have mixed feelings about them, some days ago, after I heard both...the 100's sure have much more bass, but I don't want to make same mistake as before, good pair have to sound neutral on flat EQ, not add any colours to my music, and I just have a feeling, that 200's not that much bad, I only had half hour with them in DJ shop, the funny thing, in my head I never stopped think ..get the 100's get the 100's, as 200's suck, they did suck, on first time I heard them, after the 100's, but after some tracks..I got used to what they give, the bass was crap on start, and it also built on my self..like it's there, and it just in good proportion, if thing do go bad, after like a month of use, I have good experience, selling stuff in eBay, so that not a big problem, actually it saved me a lot of money, selling unused stuff I thought I'll use more :)
