The only time there will be a difference is if the cable has poor quality, thin wiring, or if the resistance of the cable is different. Any cheap cable that uses OFC is more than plenty, and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between that and a silver cable. Most people are hard pressed to tell the difference between wire and a coat hanger (I've fooled many people doing this).

Has anyone bought the Corecool V2 from this seller?

 

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/1148506666.html

 

I realize there has been some criticism of them, but I always wanted to try them, and the price is the best I've seen.  I've just never ordered from Alirexpress before, and I'm not sure if these are counterfeit. 

 

I asked the seller a few questions about them, but the language barrier made communication nearly impossible.  I noticed his listing does not show any retail pacakaging, so I asked if they come in a retail box.  In his response, he said something about customs, but it was otherwise indecipherable.  Do you think they're legit?

Possibly real, might just be the headphones w/o wire, case, and other accessories at that price point.
Before you order those, what sound sig are you looking for?

I have the 3eighty5 version (the model 5200), which appears similar, but with lower quality components.  Although that model is bass heavy (much as the V2 has been described here), there's something about them I find less objectionable/offensive than other bass-heavy phones.  I'm just curious to hear what the ultimate version of that design would sound like.  In other words, it's more of a curiosity purchase. 

 

Not woth $100 to me, but I'll give it a go for $33.  I don't need the packaging, but I would like to know if it includes both cables (I hate cables with built in mics).

Most likely fake. One way to spot... see where it says it takes 57 days to ship out? Fake.

 

Corecool themselves sell it for $50

I wasn't impressed with the V2 in the slightest, and I'm a basshead. It's terribly bloated.

Sorry to break it to you but the 385 and the corecool are not the same headphone, other than the housing they are completely different sounds. The v2 have 99999999999x more bass than the 385. If you find the 385 "tolerable" per say, the corecool are definitely waaaaay too bassy.

If it comes with all accessories it will include both cables.

I think that's all I needed to know!  I thought the Corecool would be a more refined version of the 385 (i.e. less bass heavy). 

 

It's too bad because it sounds like there was some potential in the 385.

The Piston's are really fun as well you should have a enjoyable evening smily_headphones1.gif

 

Got Pistons 2.0, and indeed these are enjoyable!!!! :)  Any suggestions for replacement eartips?  So far found only one out of the included ones with  a good fitment that gives me max bass.

Just received the Astrotec AX35, Moxpad X2 and the Pistons and have the same problem with the pistons. Tried to swap around some of the tips from the other models and they seem to fit the earphone but still can't get a good seal. Also stole the tips off my JVC HA-FXD80-Z, again they fit but can't get a good seal. I Have large ear canals so I am always limited, most the tip varieties come in medium sizes. Ordered some double flange tips from Earphones Plus on amazon ( http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00I13H3GC ) . Could not find any reviews on Head-Fi, I'll post my finding once I receive them, should be in the next few days. Also gonna try and review the great headphones I got thanks to this thread.

 

Thanks everyone! So far the reviews have been bang on!

I can't let go of these Dolphin's.

 

Just so there's no misunderstanging: If you're looking for a neutral headphone this will not be the one. I'm sure they have dips and peaks in all the wrong places but they're just PURE FUN listening to and sometimes that's enough ;)

You are right.These are the 1st pair of headphones I dont have to eq. They are exactly what I like.

Mine just shipped. I'll be able to compare both the Dolphin and Drama soon enough.

 

No EQ? That's what I like to hear. I want a pair of headphones that will make me want to sell off everything else. Even the HE-500 didn't do that for me, and the Mikros 90 isn't either.

Newegg has the Tenqa Bluetooth 4.0 aptX earphones for $39.99 today. These are the Cannice Muses1 that I love, and paid close to $69 for initially.

I'm curious on Dolphin's vs Drama so I'm looking forward to your comparison when you get them.
