Airiness with isolation

Posted

Pros: very airy sound, isolation, decent bass,portability, design, built quality

Cons: lack details, microphonics, minimal accessories

   Sound quality:     When I  tried the eph-100 for the first time ,  I  can't say there was a "wow factor" ; however they just sounded "fine". From my cowon player s9, I  tried to play with the different jeteffects to "enhance" the sound, but none of the DSP really  made an interesting difference .Hence , if you don't have any good eq, or DSP  on your mp3 player, you won't miss this with the eph-100.

My first and last headphone of this kind

Posted

Pros: isolation, vocals

Cons: comfort, design, not enough pros

Mids: The vocals are where the hd25 II 1 shine best , I guess because they are quite forward. But still, I  found some weirdness in the mids, they lack cohesion with the remaining frequency range (even if you try to eq) ; perhaps the mids are slower ? ...

These Headphones are Wicked

Posted

Pros: detailed, balanced, goodies, portability, isolation

Cons: short life expectancy, stupid sensitivity to ear positioning

Sound quality: I must say that I was quite disconcerted by the sound signature of these headphones when I tried them first. I was not completely happy with what I was hearing, and despite the fact I was impressed by some of the qualities of the headphone (very detailed), especially when using a good source like the Xonar Stx, I felt frustrated. The good news is that I noticed later, that the sound I get from the srh940 is quite sensitive to way I position the headphones, and most of my dissatisfaction was gone. The following diagram, is a perhaps a bit exaggerated. But the idea is to move away the ears from the center, and put them closer to the top of ear cup. I get a much...
