post #361 of 367

omg just discovered this thread, where has this hp been all my life, I'm always looking for closed back can's with flat FR, now I can add this to my collection of K550, DT770AE, DJ1 Pro, UE6000, will also probably get a M70x, anyone heard one? Impressions seem to indicate a flat FR for the M70x.

Without sounding too cocky, that's what happens when one of my reviews doesn't make it to a front page lol!!! I got a number of people still pinging me when is my M70x review going to be released while it was already published over a month ago: http://www.head-fi.org/products/audio-technica-ath-m70x-professional-monitor-headphones/reviews/12603 and I included a comparison to M50x and MSR7 in there.

 

HP150 (as well as their open back HP200 version) is one special pair of cans which I really cherish.  It has a flat/neutral FR but sound signature is warm and revealing with a slight boost in bass. They kind of remind me of Havi B3 Pro I iems.  Also, very comfortable for extended listening, though ears will get a bit warm wearing these ear muffs.  SoundMagic doesn't mention that, but I heard they produce OEM drivers for Beyer (not the Tesla, though).  With M70x, sound is very neutral, flat, thin - they are not that great for music listening, but rather perfect for a pure studio work where you need to apply your final mastering EQ without coloring from your headphones.  M70x also is not as comfortable, in comparison to HP150.

Have you heard the Momentums?  I am interested to see how these compare to them.  I really like the warmer sound of the Momentums, and these seem like they share that sound signature while being about half as expensive.

Heard original Momentum over a year ago, now have Momentum 2 Wireless which shares a similar sig as wired M2 (except wider/deeper staging due to an internal USB DAC used in wireless model).  Bottom line, Momentum is warmer and more balanced, while HP150 is more neutral, more transparent, and with flatter bass response.

Little imprressions about HM5 sound and pads:

HP150 sounds really best than HM5, in bass sounds with better clarity and impact, HM5 sounds more muddy. Better clarity and extension on mids and highs more foward and pronounced, better soundstage too.
With the HM5 pads i feel that my HP150 sounds more close to HM5, bass is much more muddy to my ears, sounds bloated and over my taste, so I prefer the HP150 pads. In terms of comfort the HM5 pads win, but nothing that make I disconsider the bigger difference in the sound.

How does the HP150 compare to the Creative Aurvana Live when both run unamped?
