Nor have I, waiting on 3 different headphone items, one of which took annoyingly long just to leave the sender

I want to know what those sound like first, but a girl offered to buy my Apple EarPods for $25 (she ain't bright) and I'm tempted to order those paradigm E3Ms. Anyone got a clue where the E3Ms would stack up between the EarPods, vFrees, and HD428 (with bass mod). If they would be better than the velodyne a I'm thinking I'll get them for ease of carrying to school.

Btw, seems Phiaton PS20 NC is on sale on amazon again for $30. This item is a steal at that price.

My first Bluetooth headphones. Sounds ok for a wireless solution. Not up to my V-80's and UE 6000 of course. Very light with a low clamping force.

Best bang for zero bucks.

did they come with any other accessories besides the USB charging cable?
I've read the full box set comes with a wired headphone cable as well if we didn't want to use the bluetooth feature.

Did anyone ordered the Philips X1 and said that the arrival estimation is March? Does that mean I still got it or are they just going to cancel it? :O

Is this the deal from Amazon this morning? If so, mine got shipped and estimated to arrive tomorrow. I shop with Amazon A LOT, if they give you an estimation then yes they will honor it 99% of the time. Usually you get it earlier than the estimated date. GL!

Only time Amazon cancelled on me was the $23 DT250's. They even honored the $890 HD800. I think as long it's not obscenely underpriced they'll honor it. It does help if they ship right away, as was the case of the HD800. The DT250 got backordered and like in your case, was not ready to ship for months, and it took them a couple week to realize the mistake and cancel it.

I got that too, between late Feb to early March.

I can't imagine Amazon not honoring it, seeing as it was the Gold Box deal of the day.  The few times I have had a far-away estimated arrival date, I received my order before that date.  My guess is that you will get them in the middle or end of February.

It depends on your definition of bass-head cans as some peoples view of them may differ.

I don't know what setup you're running. The T1 is much more balanced than the LCD2. One's a dark warm bassy can with what I can is relatively good clarity for the price. The other is known for it's crystal clear vocals and treble. As well as micro-details on par with the HD800.

Seconded.  T1's are one of the most balanced headphones you can find.

Eh, nvm not worth the effort.

 

For future reference, read through the comments that can be found by searching "what is wrong with the headphone industry." (with quotes) on google before purchasing the T1.

In those regions, LCD-2's detail wins out. 


The T1s are far more unbalanced and distorted than even the DT880

I finally got to listen to the T1 a couple weeks ago - on my own system even biggrin.gif

After reading all the negatives about their spiked treble and uneven response over the last couple of years, I was shocked at how wonderful they sounded. I would say they are one of the most balanced headphones I have ever heard yet retaining a fun musical nature (terrific bass response). I have heard some people say that their perfect headphone would possess the best of the HD 800 and the best of the T1 rolled into one headphone. If it existed, I would definitely want to give it a listen!

The T1 is leagues better than the DT 880 in my opinion. No comparison...

Isn't this kind of sparking a discussion regarding the T1 by listing measurements and somehow correlating that with the "fact" you find the T1's unbalanced/lacking details?

Too many times we hear people detract on great cans like the HD800 and the T1 because their treble is peaky on the graphs. And this somehow allows them to sound unnatural.

In my opinion, if it sounds good to me and I can enjoy the music, it's a keeper.
I'm not one of those people that measure all of my headphones, claiming distortion values and resonance makes a difference in sonic preference.

The T1 is balanced to my ears. The Sa5000 is detailed. Has nothing to do with the treble.

Anyone can read a graph. But how do you actually hear it?
