Eh plugging in your single-ended terminated earpiece to the TRRS balanced hm901 is not quite 'suddenly'... :P

 

But anyway, glad you got a new one!

Am quite sure that's not why it spoilt :P
But yeah, have steered away from hm901 ever since..

Just got my 846's. A noticeable step-up from my 530's (recabled by BTG). Pairing with the ZX1.

Maybe not CNET, but I just found out about these in the HotDigitalNews' review of the 846's: Abyss AB-1266   Holy shnit!

 

Want!!!

Maybe not but the reviewer, Steve Guttenberg, is one of the reviewers on InnerFidelity as well as Sound and Vision and is highly respected here on Head-Fi and in the industry.

By who? I started avoiding Guttenberg reviews after my first couple of months here. They might as well be Amazon reviews for how much weight I find them to carry.

 

From his Sennheiser HD700 review:

 

Quote:
 Sennheiser's new HD 700 ($999.95) over-the-ear headphones sound "effortless," without strain, harshness or aggressive edge. Their stereo soundstage is more open and spacious than you'll hear from most audiophile headphones, and the bass, midrange, treble balance is very smooth, with no overly exaggerated frequencies. The HD 700 is straight down the middle, a very accurate set of headphones designed for buyers who want to hear sound with nothing added or taken away from the music.

 

Umm...ok

The point is that his reviews tend to go completely against the general audiophile consensus, and the higher the price, the higher he tends to rate the product. The HD700 has well known treble problems.

 

His reviews also come off like fluff material to me, and I often come away more confused about how the actual headphone sounds.

 

Sorry for the OT.

Like eke2k6, I recommend to take the comments about some reviewers speaking god's true words with a good pinch of salt. While I find Tyll's reviews on InnerFidelity pretty darn spot on, you sometimes wonder if the reviewer really listened with his ears for some writers!

Well someone should tell Cnet, InnerFidelity and Sound and Vision where Steve Guttenberg is a contributor...

More importantly, Arnaud did you get a new pair of 846s?

They're like a comfortable pair of old jeans. There's fancier stuff but definitely the 315s feel right home smily_headphones1.gif.
