Which ones? ATH-PRO700 MK2 vs SHR750DJ

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Anyone heard these?

 

Comparison points I'm looking at are: Bass? Quantity & Quality; Highs and Mids? Quality; & Comfort?

 

I'll be powering them with my laptop and iPhone 5. I listen to 85% hip hop. I love bass, but I want it to have quality.

Well, I just ordered the MK2 from Wal-Mart (of all places), but they won't be here until December 11th. I guess I'll go get the 750DJ from Guitar Center to audition while I'm waiting for the MK2s. Both places will have easy returns if I'm not satisfied with either :angry_face:, then it'll be back to square one.

Went by Guitar Center today and picked up the 750DJ cans. They're the most uncomfortable cans I've ever put on! The head band is more straight than curved, and the ear pads just felt off, and didn't really seal securely. Straight out of the box, the bass is weak. And they're too uncomfortable for me to take the time to burn them in to see if they get any better. I'm taking them back tomorrow. Now just waiting on the MK2s.

Finally got the MK2s in yesterday. How they feel: they're very tight out of the box so quite a bit of stretching will be needed. I have average sized ears and mine barely squeeze into the small round cups (if you have larger ears, these will be on-ear for you). The ear cups seem pretty shallow, and I could feel the driver grill pressed against my ear. So basically, if you're looking for long listening cans... these aren't the ones. As far as sound goes; I had them for one night so they'll need much more burn in for an accurate review, but from what I've heard so far, pretty good. I'll update this post next week after they've had a proper burn-in.
