While they were designed with that in mind, they are not the most neutral pair of headphones one can get.



 



 



I believe that I read an article here stating that on some headphones with recessed mids, listening to them with low volume levels might feel like the mids are missing. Is that true for these headphones? Because I'm really not the type to crank my volume all the way up...

I would prefer that they're not open headphones since I have to travel with them. I probably should have included in my post that I'll be using these headphones mainly to my commute to school. Plus, I would want to be able to listen to them while I'm in the library or something. I'll read the review though and tell you what I think. 

How much of a further cost would those comfort solutions be? And also, for how long can you listen to them before they got uncomfortable?

I see, so closed.  Have you read up on these at all: http://www.amazon.com/SoundMAGIC-HP100-Premium-Folding-Headphones/dp/B0086YJ86Y

Too bad Beyer doesn't make various neon colored neon pads for sale. Some nice lime green puff balls surrounding your ears could really make you stand out in a crowd biggrin.gif

They're not heavy, right?

I've never heard of these headphones. I'll look for some reviews for these when I have the time. Unless you got links?

Every time, I think of anything neon colored, I think of Razer. tongue_smile.gif

I actually want to try the Sound Magic's my self! 

 

They ATH a900x where not heavy, at least not to me... but I've got a large neck and shoulders [they call me the mule lol] so I don't really get "heavy" headphones.... I don't think they are but again nothings heavy on my head q.q

 

And there are some people who might professionally dye your pads, and that would be very cool!

Which guide did you utilize to EQ them?

I'm a girl so I'm kind of iffy on getting the ATH-A900X since it looks kinda bulky and heavy.

 

On a side note, I could get the FiiO E11's separately if you recommend them.

OMG AN ACTUAL GIRL ON THE INTER NET,

 

well congrats if your being honest, your going to get pampered! Head Fi is a bit of a man fest q.q

 

It really does not weigh that much, I have a w1000x and THAT is a heavy headphone, but what is cool about the Wing System. Is the wing system makes my HEAVY w1000x feel weightless on my head

 

As always if you can get a return policy or try them that would be the best. Although you could also try the Beyer Dt 770 250 ohm... I'm not sure where the price is. But used one might show up in your price range 

 

The Sound Magics are also a good choice, I've not heard them BUT they compare to the Ath a900x and Akg K550 [I own both] so they should fit your needs. Plus they fold and come with a nice case, so a good bit of extras for you if your a student!

Yeah, especially considering style for a girl, the hp100 might be for you. If you haven't found reviews yet, here's some:

Should I have kept my gender to myself? Lol. But thanks for the help, I guess I'll get the Sound Magics.
