Silver line cable version.  The soundstage is definitely wide...  I had probably 4-5hr of burn in with pink loop, the sound just gets better, tighter.  Using red filter and supplied large size AT eartips.  I'm very impressed!!!  Can't wait to get a second opinion, from you ;)

 

This is exactly a sound I was looking for awhile.  I love balanced sound with some bass quantity - this one nails it.  It's not too bright, a bit warm but not too much.  Perfect separation of lows, mids, treble.  Very detailed with a wide soundstage where I can pin point every sound.  Definitely sounds natural to me.

Agreed. The hk1 blew me away when I listen to it. I love the build also. These are very tip dependant, but once you get the right seal they are super impressive.

What would you guys recommend for someone who's looking for a bass centric headphone/IEM?

 

I basically looking for something with deep sub-bass which also has lots of impact but remains detailed.

 

I was thinking of buying the KZ-A1 based on what the first post says, but do you guys have any other suggestions?

 

I'm looking into either IEMs or a closed back full size headphone.

...

Maybe ATH-IM50?

Thanks for that. But I was thinking of going with a Chinese brand. I'm looking for one of those cheap IEMs/headphones that blow much more expensive ones out of the water.

 

Oh and I'm looking for deep, rumbling bass with excellent impact. I'm a huge basshead. To give you guys an idea of the bass I'm after, I found the bass on the beats and SE215s (EQed to boost bass) to be very underwhelming. I found the bass on the CX300s to be underwhelming too.

 

Thanks guys!

I just auditioned the Onkyo HF-300 headphones. It was a short ~5 minute listening session as I was in a bit of a rush, but here are the main bits, in comparison with my Don Scorpio Dolphins:

- Bass quantity, particularly sub-bass, seems to be larger. Definitely hits harder
- Sub bass texture seems its strongest suit, best out of any headphones I've tried so far (admittedly not a lot)
- Mid bass is decent
- Mids are moderately recessed (but not too weak) whilst the DSD can't really be said to be recessed at all
- Treble is very smooth. Zero hint of sibilance. Might be slightly more extended
- Very clear sounding
- Detail is above average
- Soundstage is impressive. Width, depth and height are all present.
- Isolation is good
- Fit seems to be for smaller heads. May be tight clamping force for larger heads

I wished I had more time with these to have a better gauge as to how much I liked it. I consider myself to be bass adverse, but I must say this was one of the only headphones thus far which has actually made me focus and appreciate on the bass rather than the higher frequencies.

I would place it very close to the DSD in overall ranking, but just a hair's breath lacking. Do note I did not have an amp with me, whereas I've been using my DSD with my Fiio E07K almost all the time.

I have the MR1 if you want to try it. Personally I think they are just ok.

How much 😊
post #2937 of 6865

This is more related to cables, but ready-made as opposed to the DIY materials that get dealt with on threads elsewhere. I was looking for a good quality pure copper cable, flexible and not too thin or too thick, and ended up researching the brands below. I decided on this one yesterday and bought it, had to limit myself to one of the models:

 

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/New-1-5M-3-5mm-Black-Audio-Extension-Cable-Male-Male-Aux-Audio-Cord-For-Cell/110158_1331979522.html

 

These are the others I was considering, from the same brand ("Ugreen" or "Green Alliance"):

 

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/New-high-quality-blue-and-purple-1-5M-3-5MM-Male-to-Male-nylon-mesh-phone/110158_1332122446.html

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/High-Quality-Gold-plated-3-5mm-male-to-male-audio-cable-for-car-aux-cable-aux/500578_1795984966.html

 

Then there's "Cabos" from "Fujicables":

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/CABOS-Enthusiast-Gold-Plated-3-5mm-Male-To-Male-Vehicle-mounted-Stereo-Audio-Cable-1-5/1738024728.html

 

And "Vention" which might be better known:

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/VENTION-Hot-selling-1-5M-black-color-car-aux-cable-Gold-Plated-3-5mm-male-male/536610_1461870066.html

 

I need a headphone cable for my Sony MDR-7520s, and all these brands claim to use OFC conductors and quality materials. I did some google-transating of the products on Ugreen's website, which is www.lulian.cn.

 

Anyway, thought I'd share...

thanks for the review. the other review contradicted this one. maybe there is variances with fit and isolation...

How do they sound straight out of cell phone or laptop?

 

Based on your descriptions, they blow away Pistons, AX35, E10, ATH-CKX9iS and 7is, and RE400?

I bet they will...especially listening to the performance of the hk1 which is astonishing and natural sounding for a 5mm micro driver iem😍
