On second thought...I will just simply order it from amazon.de.... :D

yup, I can return it in 2 weeks if it is really uncomfortable without any problem.

 

 

 

That's great because these are a great pair of headphones and I wasn't going to buy it because of the price tag but I am glad that I did :)

so, the headphone came yesterday.

WOW! The build quality is really amazing.

 

I have not tried it on for hearing music yet tho'

It is now under burn-in sequences, since I heard that it is necessary...simply playing different songs in nonstop loop...

The questions are however,

Is it really necessary? I am a bit confused on what I found on the net, some say it is necessary some say it is not necessary.

Any idea to make the process faster? I plan to leave it on burn-in for a couple of days.

I think it is required because I did try the crossfade lp and after a while they did sound better then when I got them (they had muddy bass and most reviews were lukewarm anyways)


Also sounds great that you love them. I been using mine for a week and just keeps on getting better smily_headphones1.gif

I think its not. Your actually hurting yourself not listening to them. Burn in is 99% your mind getting used to the headphones.

Have you listened the V-moda Crossfade LP? They were muddy bass with a bit better Sound quality of the Beats studio.... After about 80-100 hours on "burn in" they do sound pretty good

 

 

Certain headphones don't require it but there was a few I had noticed a huge difference after Listening to them out of the box and to them after "burning in" the headphones

I have heard them (haven't owned them), and I don't believe in burn in.  It's just a waste of time to me.

The lp's do benefit from burn in from experience

You should just use them.. Is it the lp or m80?

so...I tried it  "finally" after about 50 hours of burn-in process.

I must say WOW! It sounds definitely a lot better than my Sony XB300.

I know it is unfair to compare a €25 headphone to a €240 one
hehehehe...

 

But, what really really amazes me is the build quality.

It is also relative comfortable enough.

I have big head but not that big ear, so, so the M100 ear cup is ok.

I tried for about 2 hours, I do feel something disturbing only after 1,5 hours or so.

I have to rest put it off for a couple of minutes before putting it on again.

But it is not really a big deal, although I will definitely buy the bigger/thicker cushion after it is available in Germany.

It is also a bit of a pressure to my head, but I guess the pressure will go down in time of usage.

The pressure is not painful or anything. It is a little disturbing compared to XB300, which has almost no pressure at all.

 

The only thing I would say that I would like to see on this headphone is something like the active noise cancellation but even without it, I think, It is already the best headphone out there today judging from the sound quality combined with build quality.

 

Well, that is it!

Thank you all for your assistance.

I can choose a very good headphone thanks to you all.

The XL cushions will effect the Sound quality a bit your ears will be further from the driver. They should sound less bassy from what I read of reviews of them.

 

 

 

As far as pressure goes I found it hurt my head about 2 hours of wearing them myself but after a while it won't

 

 

 

 

active noise cancellation effects Sound quality quite a bit because of the electronics inside so they will probably sound worse as well

So...I got the XL cushion a few days ago.

Yup! It is way more comfortable but also not looking good (uglier) as with the normal cushion.

 

The sound with the XL cushion is changed a bit in my opinion, it is more roomy and looses somehow quite bit from the bass punchyness.

I generally like the more roomy sound and the comfort with the XL cushion but not really like the look and the bass loss.

 

The lower freq losses can be helped a bit using the equalizer. but can not reached the same quality as with the normal cushion.

If I push the bass high with the equalizer, it will start somewhere to sound terrible but somehow still not punchy like using the normal cushion.

 

But..I think I will keep using the XL cushion, comfort is more important...I guess...hehehehehe  :)

I use PowerAmp app on the SGS3 from Google playstore.

Via the sliders and...not by turning the bass boost dial circle..in PowerAmp I see 2 possibilities to boost bass..using the equalizer slider and from bass boost dial circle.

I basically do not want to touch the bass boost and treble boost dial.
