End of Journey

Posted

Pros: Sound, Comfort, Lightweight, Build quality

Cons: Price, Blink Blink looks might not suit everyone

I've own most Audio Technica Portables (es7, esw9, esw10jpn, m50) and some other phone (Denon a100, tried Ultrasone 780 & 580). And This is by far my best choice. This may not be as good as esw10 but it is much more comfortable. Unlike esw10 that has huge amount of clamping force, es10 pads sits lightly on your ears. Other than that the build quality in this non limited edition seems more sturdy than the esw10, I think the Denon A100 also have worse build quality compared to this, so I think this is my perfect portable phone: Sturdy, lightweight, comfortable, and beautiful (this may vary).   The sound is also not that bad; I think it sounds great; well it's sounds more...

Arguably the best 25 buck I ever spent

Posted

Pros: Sounds, Price, Portability, Looks

Cons: needs recabling

I paid 25 bucks for this phone, which makes it stupidly good value. Best Bang for the buck phone. Quite comfy so you can use it for quite a long time. Sounds is quite awesome, not 200$ awesome sound but for less than 50$, it is really great sound. Bass is quite strong, not so boomy and it is actually quite well defined. Mid  not solid but quite good. Well, it has Sennheiser house sound, dark, bit veiled, strong bass, and laid back ... I'm bit love the coloring of Audio Technica so not really my cup of tea, but I can live with it for a while. I may choose phone this over es7 though. Overall, it sounds good, does nothing wrong, and very cheap.

Denon Ah-A100

Pros: Comfort, Looks, Soundstage

Cons: Sound quality, Price, Almost identical to cheaper model

The cup is a beauty, and I believe that's a fact. aesthetic wise it looks very good, it is a thing that can turn people's head ..... no ... not away, but to you or at least that's what I feel. so,  I vouch for this phone to be the best looking phone ever, well apart from edition 8 LE which I'm not sure if those are portable or not. And I would also vote this to be the most comfortable portable phone ever. Just couldn't think of anything better. The leather is so soft, it feels like ... well ... a leather. a high quality one, and it sits just right around your ear with adequate clamping force that also feels right. Isolation is pretty good, I can hear no background sound on loud...

SA1000 DJ? Capable driver in cheap plastic body :( and not for DJ !

Posted

Pros: Fast, detailed, more transparent- Capable driver

Cons: Lack of body, Build quality is questionable

To begin with, i don't know what Sony was thinking but creating this for DJ headphone is totally wrong. It's not about the sound, but the body are too Plasticky and doesn't seem to be durable and the cups are actually open which mean that it doesn't have noise reduction at all. Build quality for these phones are bad. it doesn't seem to use good material, the cups looks easy to break and I've seen lots of review in amazon mention design flaw that will broke the band ... Ah also everytime you move your head, it gives you cracking sound which is for me very disturbing. Despite all that; the sound is fantastic for me (for 45 bucks headphone), i prefer this a lot rather than akg k701...
