I wonder how these sounds in comparison to KC06?

post #2838 of 15869

JBM 6600 ( 6mm dynamic micro drivers )  are here.

Just opened them and took pics will wait and live with them for a bit before impressions. Dirt cheap and they are small. Look at them in comparison to the TRRS plug to get a feel for that.

 

Pouch is that tensioned top snap open type, 3 sets of tips in addition to what is on them, clip, burn-n software on mini disc ( no doubt it's windows based so useless to me ). Check em out. $14 shipped.

 

Another headfier also sprang for some around the same time, he may pop in sooner or later to let me know if I am crazy or not if he got them yet.

 

Package is a fun read.

 I have to say the cable is rather impressive, reminds me of the one on the flagship Philips SHE9900 BA drivered iems. Really sturdy and doesn't seem to want to kink at all.

 

 

 

 

Just reading the manual now some stuff that "stood out"

  • all metal housings
  • magnetic flux tube (?) "The same technology found in the speaker cables"
  • stated frequency response in manual itself ( same as auction listing ) is 6 - 23500 hz. So the back of the¬† box is wrong.
  • manual tells you how to properly insert them¬† by pulling up on the ear right hand then insert with left hand etc... kinda cool

etc.

 

  Got them hooked into the IHIFI 812v2 for a good pounding and using V-moda Bliss 3.0 tips.

 

BTW waynes world, you can sleep in these they are so low profile and tiny... get on it.

Where did you get a pair?

ebay 

 

so far nothing harsh at all, picks up small trailing echoes in tracks, still breaking them in, maybe it is fullsized amp time.

Cool, I'll check it out.

Pistons broke after about 2 months of constant use and I've decided I want to get more stuff.

 

Currently looking at the Havi B3s, another pair of pistons, Ttpod T1, and Dolphins. Couple of questions.

 

For one, I currently use Beyerdynamic dt770s. I like them a lot and I usually play them with some bass boost. I absolutely love the (imo) ridiculously powerful bass of the pistons (I mainly listen to EDM) but I'm completely fine with less bass. I'm looking for a pair of headphones that are more portable, light, and stylish. Is it worth getting the Dolphins?Are they better than/comparable to the dt770s or should I go for a different pair? 

 

Also, I was looking around for some cheap headphones to mess around with and try out, I noticed the KZ-A1, KZ-R3, These, these, and these. (I put in links to the taobao page for each) But are any of these worth getting, if I get the four headphones I listed off at the top of the post? I assume getting the four makes getting a handful KZ headphones pointless, am I correct in my assumption? The last one especially interested me because I hadn't seen anyone review them or try them out and according to what I can tell they're contenders against the Xiaomi Pistons. 

 

Oh, and are the headphones I listed at the top a good set to buy? Those seem like the headphones that keep showing in this thread so I guess those are the best to try out, but am I missing any other headphones I should buy?

 

Sorry for the barrage of questions, thanks guys.

www.360doudou.com

 

it is their site, also found a link with an entire history of headphones starting from 1890 , care instructions etc.

The dolphins are in my opinion better than the dt770. They are slight bass boosted more towards the sub bass though they are really not a really basshead can.

So I actually fully opened the manual on those:o, and there is 2 full pages on what burn-in is, why it does what it does, the whole deal. It seems the software is noise generator where you enter the start and end frequencies, they are saying that generally low end sounds ( 20-100 hz ) "is appropriate"  Generally 8 hours or longer depending on headphones.  This is neato. Looks to be able to generate White noise and pink noise.  I should look at it on the laptop soon.  I like this it's fun.

Neat. If it works it might make a slick diagnostic tool as well.

I just got my KZ-A1's today and they are awesome. I was very skeptical for 10 bucks and I'm sure glad I did now. Where did you buy your pistons and which model and how much did you pay?

 I'm looking to buy the Pistons (the 2014 commemorative edition) or the Ttpod T1.

After spending the last couple of weeks fine tuning my t50rp I must say that they, the sr325is and the Dolphin's are certainly in a league of their own compared to the other full sized headphones that I own. Oneclosed, one open and one portable, makes me really considering selling of the rest of the bunch except maybe the Pro80's and Q40's that's still very nice in certain situations or with some gengres. This says a lot of how much I value the Dolphin's.

When it comes to IEM's there's much tougher competition among the ones I own. My self imposed maximum price limit of $100 for iem's is probably playing a big role in this. I could easily list ten pairs that I find equally enjoyable but in different ways. Seeing the quality one gets in the sub $100 department now I really don't see any need for spending more as long as I've got a nice collection of full sized cans as well.

Just some thoughts on a Saturday morning smily_headphones1.gif

Edit: I forgot to mention that the FiiO E12 really is a great little amp. Works great with both the sr325is and the t50rp's. For the $88 I paid for it it's really a steal, couldn't be more happy with my purchase.

All this talk about the Dolphins really make me want to buy a pair. That, and they look like a smaller, wired version of a Parrot Zik, which is really cool.

Sadly, i can't seem to be able to find them on TaoBao. Have any of you guys had any luck with purchasing these from TB?
