thats good that you like the hd7

 

@Oregonian 

 

I live in portland so if you ever wanted to try the hd 8 dj or any other hp I get for that matter you are more than welcome to borrow em. Even the yamaha hph mt220 with alpha pads.

I'm still a happy M-Audio Q40 user after like 2 years+ but I might pick up a HD8 based on hekeli's measurement of it. :P I want Q40's  ^--  shape sound which both the measurements and my subjective listening agree with. (too bad about the early roll-off of the upper-most highs)

In any price category, it's difficult to find closer to ^-- shape than this, at least what I've seen.

Thanks - I'm hoping we get another local meet together at Echo Audio, then we can all try a number of choices.

Oh, that looks quite nice.  Now I'm much more piqued.

Mine arrived today and the first impressions are very positive. The feel and fit is extremely comfortable and assuring. They grip my head just right, tight but not too tight. These will not fall off easily. Earcups move out of the way for one ear listening easily and maintain still a firm fit and a good seal, something that for instance V-MODA M-100 didn't do for me. Overall the form and function meet in these headphones for DJ use better than any other that I've tried. Sound-wise these also deliver. They sound less boomy than my V-MODA's if my memory serves but still provide good, somewhat emphasized low-end with more control than the M-100's. The mids are crisp and highs as well and in my ears, these sound more balanced than the V-MODA's, especially at the high end. Too bad I don't have them anymore for comparison but overall, these have met my expectations as the DJ headphone I've been waiting for. Good job Sennheiser!

Great that more and more people have them.

Aren't the cups to small for you? That's the most concern, because they're even smaller than on Philips L1 and they fit me just right.

How would you describe the sound frequency? V-shaped or more balanced with boosted bass?
post #442 of 927

Cups are snug but my ears fit inside without the pads going on my ears at all. Sound frequency sounds more balanced with boosted bass than V-shape, at least for me. There's some creaking from the earcups when I move them, that's the only downside that I've found from my short testing period. These are definitely a keeper for me.

post #443 of 927

Just to make sure, you've got the HD8 right? I'm a bit worried about the creaking, quite hate that noise since I'm the one that might get a bit more into my music (hardstyle is like made to spazz out to haha) and therefore can't always sit still so hope it's not too bad. 

post #444 of 927

Yeah, the HD8's. They don't creak if I shake my head, only if I move the cups with my hands (when I want to listen with one ear only). So it's not really bothering me, just a thing to mention.

OK well that's no issue, I was wondering it it was also noticeable if moving your head, turning, bobbing etc. :)

Do the HD8's isolate well enough for portable use and are they tight enough fitting for walking around too?  Thanks..

Yes, DJ headphones have to be known for isolation. This is a very good DJ headphone that has comfortable levels of clamping force.

post #448 of 927
Agreed. Extremely good isolation and the fit will allow you to walk, jump and probably do a bungee jump as well smily_headphones1.gif.

HD8 in da house, kept it warming up quite a while until even had a chance to listen. Sounds more V-shaped (edit: bad choice of words, as they are not generally V-shaped, just more bass boosted) bassy to me than HD7, have to see if measurements agree. ;)

Interesting...

 

I still don't know if I'm going to order them (put up my dough on another headphone to be released in a few months), but definitely waiting for more impressions.

 

 

Thanks.
