The Utility Player

Posted

Pros: Custom Acoustics

Cons: Fit

For anyone who has read any of my previous reviews on the KRK-KNS 8400, Shure SRH-940, Sennheiser HD448 or Sennheiser PX360, this beginning piece may seem redundant to you.  However, I think it is important to include.  I like to start off by giving the reader a tidbit about my previous audio experience in an effort to put my words into a useful perspective and empower them as a consumer.  Describing my history gives the reader the ability to place a personal value on my impressions and best utilize the information.  With that piece said I hope you enjoy the following and also find it useful. I’ve appreciated good sound since a relatively young age, and I have my...

No One-Trick Pony

Posted

Pros: Lightweight, Comfortable, Easy to Drive, Balanced midrange

Cons: Extension could be better

  As per standard, I will give a bit of a background to premise this review.  I do this before all of my reviews just to give the reader an idea of my experiences.  This allows the potential consumer to best judge my opinions and ultimately decide what kind of bearing my words have with them.  My reviews aim to express my thoughts with the main intention being to arm the reader with the knowledge to make the best purchasing decisions.  Knowledge is power, and I say power should go to the consumer in any market!   I come from a family of audio hobbyists/philes/enthusiasts/whatever.  Hi-fi has been part of my experience from the time of a child,...

For the Treble Lover

Posted

Pros: Detailed, "open" feel, Build Quality, Included goodies

Cons: Heavy, Uncomfortable headband

It has started to become a trend that when I review equipment here on head-fi I give a small background regarding my audio experiences, in an effort to provide the reader of the material a better idea of my opinions to ultimately aid in objectifying such a subjective category of audio.  For those of you who have read my other reviews you may find this repetitive, but I still feel it is of importance to the quality of the review and for what the reader takes away from it.  So... here goes:   I am a young audio enthusiast who is relatively new to the headphone scene.  I may not have years of experience with headphones specifically as many of the other members of...

Built to Fly - A Traveler's Companion

Posted

Pros: Excellent Passive Isolation, Lively Lows, Solid Construction, Featherweights, Easy to Drive, Collapsible

Cons: Firm Clamping Force, Puny Cable, Small Cups, Strange Highs

Usually before writing a review, I give a little background to give the reader an idea of my perspective and experience so the evaluator can best utilize the information provided.  I also start out with a small disclaimer, saying that any analysis regarding sound is of subjective nature, and other ears may disagree with my findings.  Despite the subject nature, I try and provide a fair analysis with objective notes.  I am also open to respectful criticism and responses as well.  Enjoy!   My entrance to the audio world began as a child.  My family is scattered with audio enthusiasts, so it is only natural that I was exposed to hi-fi at a young age. ...

Killer Close Backer for ~$100

Posted

Pros: Flat, Natural SQ. Lightwieght, Multi-purpose, Super Comfy

Cons: Accurate, yet weak lows. Amping helped more than intuition suggested.

As a young audio enthusiast with most of my knowledge base centering around car audio, I found my appreciation for sound begin translate across into the home.  Audio nuts run in the family, so between knowledge obtained from relatives and my own satisfaction of curiosity, I have come to learn much about the extremely complex niche of home loudspeakers.  Being a college student makes living situations far from ideal to venture (as a consumer) into the large, lovely loudspeaker market.  Naturally, the right avenue to achieve beautiful sound seemed to be headphone Ave.  While not related to the product I am reviewing, I feel as though to really deliver accurate...
