Ticks all the boxes except for the most important one-sound quality

Posted

Pros: Great software, bluetooth, NFC, connects to everything

Cons: Ultimately sounds a bit cheap to me in comparison to others in its price range

Didn't see any reviews on this yet so I guess I'm 1st.   I compared this with JDS Labs C5, Fiio E12, E6, Objective 2, Magni 2 Uber, and Schiit Fulla.    Nothing brings to mind the phrase "polishing a turd" like the sound of the unit in my opinion. There are loads of sonic tweaks in the Soundblaster Central app that's free from the iOS app store, but ultimately none that I tried were successful in giving the Creative Soundblaster E5 a more *expensive* sound. Ultimately, the Fiio E6 even had a more "expensive* sound than this imo.    I wanted to love this thing, I really did. Bluetooth connectivity is spot on and the EQ in the software suite is sensational....

Everything a DJ needs

Posted

Pros: Very DJ oriented EQ: kick drums and backbeats are very pronounced, perfect EQ for DJ'ing; nice little touches that benefit pro DJ's

Cons: Very harsh digital sound when cranked

I have 4 pair of these, all given to me as a result of my job, which is professional DJ. The 1st pair I got had the 1/4 adapter connected(see photo) to the cable permanently so you would never lose it, which I thought was a very nice touch for traveling DJ's because I lose them all the time, but that feature was later removed in the 3 pair I got after that. The flip up ears are also a very nice touch and in my case at least, very well done because I can flip up an ear and the headphones still fit snuggly.     Beats gets a bad rap from *audiophiles* who want to seem like they know what they're talking about, and the quickest way to get respect is to slag off Beats....

Best sounding portable headphones EVER

Posted

Pros: Kick ass mids, great very detailed bass, SMOOTH detailed highs

Cons: VERY LONG burn in period on some, conservative estimate about 250+ hours.

I'm a professional DJ/Producer. In my rider I ask that the venue supply the headphones. So I have at least 100 pairs of headphones, and that's after giving away the majority of them to friends. Not going to bother to run off every pair but I've tried just about every pair out.    Just before I was about to play in Stockholm I received a pair of these Marshall Major FX headphones and out of the box they were noticeably the best sounding portable headphones I'd ever heard. A friend had just come into my room (He's also a DJ) and I let him hear them and his response was the same. He had an iPhone 5 and I had an HTC 8x Windows Phone and the latest generation iPad that I tested...
