The Drama is sexier, but reminds me of a clearer Beats set, focusing on bass.

I don't know how to put it, but it's like the bass, mids and highs are all forward/prominent, so they all even out to be overall balanced. It's a complete in-your-face experience, great especially for blood-pumping rock and metal music.

Have you tried the JVC HA-680? 

Curious as these are the only things tempting me away. 

I would use the dolphins on the move sometimes, are they ok for sound isolation?

Sorry haven't heard the 680's.

Isolation on the Dolphin's is top notch.

How much bass does the donscorpio dolphin have? Would you consider it a near basshead headphone?

Anyone know how long the Penonaudio orders take for IEMs once they get in the states? My Bass Colours apparently processed through USPS in San Francisco on April 5th, and still haven't made it to Michigan yet. Seems like First Class mail would have gotten it here by now.

My order took 12 days from entering the US New York facility to delivery.

 

Thanks,

Good to know. I was getting worried. I know things can get hung up by customs, but it seems to have passed that stage.

I would say that the Dolphin's is almost on bass head level but still they feel pretty balanced. To put it in another way: I think that one would need to be a bass head to feel that they lack in the bass department.

How does it compare to the ath m50 in bass quantity?
post #2439 of 5132
Sorry, I've never heard the m50's.

Maybe someone else here can help?

What about the m audio q40 or koss prodj100?

post #2441 of 5132
More bass than dj100 and definitely less than q40's. The q40's has true bass head level bass but still sounds very nice. They are my go to cans when it crave for that deep rumble, the Dolphin's are not at that level. The overall sound signature on the Dolphins are warmer than both of the others.

Got the Sidy MR1 today. Pretty nice for the price. Impressions later.

I got the Intopic Jazz i57 today (special thanks to Pastapipo for going through the trouble of bringing them from Asia to Europe for me) and they're also very good for the price. I'll give them some more days before I post any further impressions.

I can say one thing though: they do not lack bass wink.gif

I look forward to your impressions! I've been considering these little dudes.

More bass than the Pro 80?  Do you like them more than the Pro 80?
