What do you guys think about the "sms audio" line?

I am surprised nobody has mentioned Beyerdynamic so far.

 

For open/semi-open DT 990 Pro

 

For closed DT 770 Pro

Beyerdynamic is the opposite of basshead from what I've heard, most of their cans are quite bright...

I don't think anyone cares enough to even think about trying them to be honest. I've seen next to nothing about them around here. I dismissed them as Beats knockoffs the instant I saw them, I'm sure others have done the same.

Not my opinion (below) as I haven't actually listened to them. 

 

However, I trust Tyll's opinions (http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/celebrity-headphone-deathmatch-sms-50) and have bought several headphones based on his recommendations with no disappointments. 

 

Just recently bought the Logitech UE6000 ($99 at BestBuy) based on his write up (http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/surprisingly-good-logitec-ue6000-and-ue9000-page-2) and love them.

 

ync by 50 ($399)
111212_feature_celebrityheadphonedeathmatch_50cent_syncThe prominently touted feature of these headphones is the KLEER wireless system that transmits lossless CD quality audio. I've used a number of other products that use this chipset and find them to work marvelously. To my ears the performance of the Sync is as good wireless as it is when used with a wire. Which is to say: lousy. Not the fault of the KLEER connection, I'm sure.

 

Overwhelming and bloated bass, withdrawn and uneven mids, and inarticulate highs made themselves apparent in moments. These headphones are a murky muddy mess, made only worse by turning on the bass boost when operated wirelessly. To my ears, the fail of these cans is only exceeded by the Beats Solo. Not only are they a miserable listen, but the earpieces hardly swivel at all making them a clumsy and somewhat uncomfortable fit. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder of course, but I found the look of the Sync unimaginative and fugly.

There aren't many headphones that I wouldn't recommend before these.

 

Street by 50 ($299)...The sound was very similar to the Sync, which is again to say: lousy.
