KEF M500/M200 Impressions Thread - Page 51

post #751 of 940
I was getting the ATH-IM70 first, before I think about buying another pair of M200, then i got a replacement pair from KEF.

anyone using the M200 with a FIO E06? do you hear a difference, and if, where exactly?

never had an amp, but I want to buy one eventually

i have the M200, and i use the E6 and the E11. The E6 gives it a louder, slightly harsher sound. It takes away some of the smoothness that is inherent to the M200. Details though show through a tad more than the E11, which maintains that smoothness and gives it a lush and more mature bass sound. The E6 does not.

One of the hinge of my M500 is getting a bit loose, I rotated the ear piece so I can see the screws. They look like those tiny hexagonal screws, I have no idea where I can get the screw driver for those.

Anyone ran into the same problem?

Another faulty LF driver? Don't tell eric. He seems to think all the M200's work like clockwork lol Just messin with ya eric. ;) Seriously, KEF will give you a hard time, and demand all sorts of proof ect to even begin to help you, but they eventually came through for me, so I'm sure you'll get a replacement pair?

Yeah, was listening the other night, everything seemed to be balanced to the right, listened each side separately, L not silent but much quieter than R, changed to Westone 3's, sound fine again (using X3 into National Amp). I've gotten many headphones recently, probably have to look hard for receipt on these, see if KEF will honor responsibilities on these things. Oddball shape, porr quality control, not a great start in the headphone world imo.mad.gif

No problem here, but any hardware store should have a set of screw drivers that should fit. Probably just needs some tightening.

I knew that from the moment my left LF driver went out after the SECOND DAY. They won't even begin to talk to you without the receipt. I had to dig deep for it, and fax  that along with the serial number on the box. Serial number alone didn't get them to budge. At first all they offered was a replacement pair at cost, but eventually relented with a replacement pair when I threatened to get mouthy on this forum about their shoddy CS and QC.

If the Havi's are even close to the M200 as hazard boasts, I'll probably just end up selling the M200. Even though I like the SQ and it is top notch, and I really didn't have much with fit issues (I got huge ear holes), still they could be far more ergonomic, and they are a clunker to carry around portably, so yeah, the B3's may be the end of my M200?

Its not normal screw tho. I had a search online. I bidding my chance on TORX screws

Thanks a lot, I've ordered it.

 

Do you maybe have some tracks (spotify would be alright) where you can hear a difference? I'm curious to test

if you have any tracks, I'll try to see if I spot a difference :)

 

ordered the E6 for now as a first test

The E6 is a good little amp. The battery last forever, and really brings out details, though as i said, can remove a bit of smoothness to a sound sig, but not too bad.
