A wonderful buy

Posted

Pros: Well balanced, doesn't lack in any one area, sound stage isn't too wide or short

Cons: The bass can be exaggerated

Compared these to Grado SR80i, SR225i, AKG K702, and Sennheiser HD598, HD650 headphones.   Build quality is good, strong plastic with a durable headband. The cords are detachable if they were to become damaged. The comfort is moderate, with soft ear pads that mostly covered my ear. The headband adjusts well and rests nicely without too much clamping force. I prefer the pads on the HD598 or the AKGs.   Soundstage is shorter than the AKG and wider than the Grado. It sits near that of the Sennheiser HD598. For gaming these provided good positional cues and kept up with the action.   Treble is more detailed in all of the headphones I compared the M40x to, but that is...

First DAC/AMP to Power My HD650

Posted

Pros: Price, Reputation of the D1, Bit-perfect USB support out of the box

Cons: None so far

I got the D1+ with all the upgrades after reading all the awesome reviews about the original D1 on head-fi. It was pretty clear to me that the headphones I received for Christmas (Sennheiser HD 650) weren't going to work well with a 3.5mm jack out of my laptop. So after hours of researching the best options for my budget (250-350 bucks USD) I went with the D1+ and hoped for the best. After unpacking it and hooking it up I played a few songs with Foobar2000 and was very pleased. I've listened to hours of music now and am still pleased with the unit, hearing micro-details in Pink Floyd and The Beatles as well as diving into albums I would other-wise not care about (good kid, m.A.A.d...

Good Starter Headphone

Posted

Pros: Great Value Sound Quality

Cons: Comfort, Build Quality

I previously owned a pair of Klipsch Image S4 earbuds after reading a review on C-Net about how good they sounded. After hearing music with the Klipsch I started to crave for a richer sound. I came across head-fi and searched for the best cans in my price range. There were two contenders it came down to the Grado SR225i and a pair of Sennheiser's for which model I can not recall. After calling around local audio shops I finally found the Grados. They didn't have a display pair but the owner of the shop was nice enough to open a brand new pair for me to test out. I feel in love instantly. The sound quality was like nothing I had heard at that point in my life (I've heard better...

Great Christmas Present

Posted

Pros: Comfort, Build Quality, Detail

Cons: Open back lets in noise, after hearing them with an amp. you'll have to drop another $300+

Just got a pair of these for Christmas and have to say that I was very impressed with the box they came in, very solid packaging, and neatly organized cord. There is a 3.5mm adapter included in the box, something I was not used to coming from a pair of Grado SR225i cans. The build quality is very good, I don't feel like I will scratch or dent them without a decently high tumble. The cord is detachable and feels like it will not likely give out anytime soon. As for comfort, I never really found my old Grados that uncomfortable (I know you guys/gals on Head-fi and reviews on Amazon always talk about Grados being uncomfortable) but now I can hardly wear them after having used...
