I have both and apart from the screws for the faceplate they are dissimilar. COP looks more pro and solid.
Perhaps, but sound wise there is no competition. The COP smears the M100 like a windscreen wiper smears bugs.
He's been very negative towards the COP which I find odd because one in every 3 headphones he reviews is either celebrity endorsed or unknown and uninteresting.
Link or it didn't happen.
Thanks for reprinting some hard data on the Custom One™ Pro™. I'm currently setting up a showdown between several medium-impedance models from beyerdynamic® and Sennheiser® for the next headset that I will use on my Asus® CM1630-06 as upgraded with a XONAR® audio card; if the Custom One™ Studio™ responds in similar fashion to the Custom One™ Pro™, it may be a long shot but I won't rule it out before comparing it to the other candidates (see also "Recommendable headphones and/or headsets for Asus XONAR Essence Series?").
Ok fine, since that original reply was addressed to me, let's take out the smoothing filters...
Even on a smoothed plot, that's a nearly 15db dip followed by a 10db peak. A double whammy that ups to 15db without smoothing. Yeah any difference like that is going to sound like a spike. Around 9kHz is especially nasty. And I'll bet you dollars to donuts at least one of those is a decay ridge on a CSD plot.
Cool! Thanks for that. How do you remove the smoothing filters on headroom graphs?? I'd love to checkout some more FR plots without the smoothing applied.
