Pioneer SE-A1000 Appreciation Club ( Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?) - Page 61

post #901 of 909

I currently own Beyers DT990 PRO and these Pioneers. They both sound great on my Fiio X5. It's actually difficult to compare them, DT990 gives much more bass. After EQing 990s down a bit, making it sound more like 880s, all I can say Pioneers do their job perfectly. They sound less harsh, more soft, gently, but not lacking in precision at all. Airy would be a good word to describe them. There is no weakness vs. Beyers. They always play what they are supposed to play, even if there are many instruments in the background. You can keep track of every single of them, they never get lost because of sounds overload or anything. Comparing them to K701 is an absolutely right thing to do, having listened to these as well.

It's no surprise given that DT990pro and K701 are quite disadvantaged out of portable equipment.

Any scientific reason why would that be? 250 Ohm is enough to be sure Fiio doesn't run out of current. What it really needs is voltage. If It can't give more voltage, it simply means they won't play louder. The problem would be a very low impedance headphones - they obviously need little voltage, but a lot of current, exceeding the capability of a portable player.

I recommend comparing out of a desktop unit to find out for yourself. The explanations are probably around here somewhere if you want the details.

Hey guys!

 

Just coming to update you guys.

 

I haven't had much time burning in the HTF600s yet, but unless I am playing something that requires heavy low bass I will still be using my SE-A1000s. I have been trying to condition my ears to listen at a lower listening level, which they are so clear at any level that I play them at.

 

Also if you are a drummer I have been having some awesome results with some IEMs with Comply buds, with some industrial noise cancelling earmuffs over them. Great way to isolate yourself away from the world. :)

Received my pioneer se-a1000....wow. just wow. Even for double the rrp these are great headphones let alone for under 60 bucks!! Love hidden gems like this.

Just ordered my pair.  I've probably paid over the odds, but the best deal I could find was a used pair at $60 shipped to the uk from ebay.  I also have a pair of Sony MA900s on the way too.  That should be an interesting comparison.  2 pairs of interesting headphones that slipped under the radar..

Hi guys,i'd like to ask if you can list some good and compatible leather replacement ear pads for this cans.Thank you :)

Can anyone tell me how these compare to the sony MA900s?  I have just received these and am blown away by them. My Pioneers are coming in the next week or so.  Both to be played through an HRT Microstreamer..
