In your opinion.....I just got off two flights, coast to coast........Two major airports and lots of Dr. whatever his name is cans..No one even looked my way. The Hammo performed very well. Not a problem for me as the sound speaks for itself.  As for a comparison with ATH M50....The Noontech Hammo for the price  IMHO  was a flater sound and a whole lot cheaper..  I have to admit I was very surprised when I first heard the   Hammo.  I own both and yes the construction on the Noontech is not as sturdy as the m50.  However, I take care of my cans and I see no problem.

Using an amp with them? If they are a tad flat a dac amp could do the trick. Trying to decide what cans to buy under 150

Paired the Hammo with a DX50 and an O2 amp.........Combination is wonderful!

Anyone else with comparisons? Looking at these, the cal, atm50, koss pro dj, etc

How about more comparisons to the zoro hd? Seems to be pretty split.

Got my hammo from new egg finally. Never owned the zoro hd but the hammo has impressed me so far. Pretty much spot on from TCs original post. Mine also seemed to ship with the stickers off. Mids and highs are snappy and loud.

After some burn in these are my favorite sub 130 cans i have heard. My friends keep asking me how much they cost. Newegg hooked me up. Using with e17, highly satisfied

Yeah, I hate that I sold mine off. I kinda miss them.

I just picked up a used pair from the Amazon Warehouse Deals at 56 bucks (like new condition, and I have had the zoros since October of 2012 and I paid 50 for them. The Hammos blow the Zoros out of the water, they feel great on my ears and of course the sound quality is superb. The Zoros had probably 100+ hours of music on them, so maybe they were wearing out (they still sounded nice though). These look brand new, and sound great too. I don't believe it has the sticker there because they're pretty well balanced, similar to my Zoros, but even if they did I'm too paranoid to take the pads off in the first place. "If it isn't broken, don't fix it." My headphones have the stronger left hinge as well, not sure what's up with that. But they should see some extensive use for awhile.

Has anyone else compared these to the Zoro HD? I'm planning on buying today, but I'm still torn between Zoro and Hammo. Does the larger driver mean a definite improvement in SQ, or will the be harder to drive from a phone?
They are an extra £20 in the UK, and I'm on a budget, so only really want to go for the Hammo if they are dramatically better. I listen to quite a lot of heavy metal, so bass is important.. I don't want the overbearing bass of Beats (who does?), I want something that has a good, refined bass, which doesn't muddy the rest of the ranges.
Any help gratefully received!

Just ordered a set.. Will let you know what I think of them!
Thanks for the advice.. Much appreciated!

Remember, you just got a great set of cans and they need a bit of burn in.......A sleeper of headphone.  I don't know what your using to drive them but the require only a small amount of power as they are most efficient.  50mm drivers do make a difference........Enjoy!
