HE-400s are weighty. That's the only comfort issue really. And if one has a bunch of other headphones and IEMs (like us--lol), then it's easy enough to use switch to another pair after an hour or two if the weight becomes a little much. They really are some excellent headphones, although lately I have enjoyed some K612 Pros for their more neutral sound and bit better soundstage (and yes they are more comfortable).

I'll have to remember the bass colours the next time my son ask for new IEM's. Gives me a good reason to hear them wink.gif

Yeah the weight of the HE-400 combined with my very small head makes me worried. TBH I really hate having great sounding headphones with lack of comfort. They don't get the amount of use they deserve and I cannot let go if them because I love the way they sound when I eventually listen to them.

I actually had a hard time deciding between the 612Pro and the Q701. I went to by the 612Pro in a store but they were sold out and when I got home to order on the web I found the q701 for similar price and went with them due to the detachable cable.......

The Q701s are definitely some nice headphones. They were a touch too bright for me personally, but I'd recommend them to anyone.

But back to full sized Asian headphones, I'd love to hear about any little known models you might find. Must be some others out there other than HiFiMan, Soundmagic, Sony, and Audio Technica.

Is KZ-R3 supposed to have different color right and left housings?

Ben, 

Ask Wokei, I know he has them and I'm about to.

Same color housing 😊

The KZ-LP2 is a piece of ****. It has an M100 frequency response from headphone.com printed on the box, and I actually believe them, it sounded very close to M100 just a little brighter. It kinda sounded like the M100 with the XL pads.

 

However the headphone falls apart the first few days and they absolutely reek, the stench from the earpads is horrific. The build quality and isolation is VASTLY inferior to original M100.

 

I highly recommend to avoid this product!!!

Wokei is here ...the iem looks the same ..no colour different .

Only have L and R marking on the detachable cable end ....MCMX connector ......so for those who have Moxpad X3 ..can be used too.

Personally I find using Moxpad X3 cable with R3 ..better details and separation.

Very interested in the Xiaomi Piston 2.0 listed in OP. Quick questions:


1. what is the noise reduction with the standard tips? I'm guessing it's pretty modest based on the look of the tips (very similar to philips she35xx that I already have, which offer modest isolation--no more than 15 dBA max I'd estimate).

2. are the tips from various companies interchangeable with IEM brands? I'm thinking of using high isolation eartips from ety or shure.

Any comments on sound signature are welcome of course. smily_headphones1.gif

Mine are different on one, and the same on the other.

 

It's due to the ebony they use.

I have two of their $8 models, and they aren't anything impressive. These look like they have potential though.

Mine are dark on the right and light on the left. Huge difference between the two,how can they consider them a pair?

Still haven't spent enough time with my KZ LP but they continue to impress. They have really nice highs - they are kind of the takstars pro 80 with good highs.
