Excellent SQ for the money

Posted

Pros: Imaging, detail, responsive and dynamic or engaging sound.

Cons: Fit can be an issue. Perhaps for perfection a bit more sub bass and sparkle up top and a wider SS but that is perfection.

Read a ton of reviews before purchasing. However, I will be honest and say that I was a bit let down by the bass. Don't get me wrong, its very detailed and balanced and perhaps there lies my issue, I was under the impression that these were more bassy. I am a bit of a basshead, in that, I like to feel it. Obviously, to many these have plenty of bass and the upper bass is there but it diminishes as it gets deeper to my ears which surprised me, again due to reviews. For the vast majority of what I listen to the bass is fine but for electronic stuff there is near zero rumble where there should have been.

Insane bang for the buck sound quality

Pros: Build, Sound and price.

Cons: None

I've read allot on these new usb DACs that supposedly sound as good as ones many times more pricey and that sounded good to me as I like the idea of improving sound on top of the headphones I already have. Still not sure exactly how  something converting a bunch of 1 and...

Pros: Soundstage, detail, and balanced sound that isn't bass shy.

Cons: none that I can find. Difficult to find.

Read all the reviews here on headfi and you'll get a very accurate idea of what you'll hear. I have been buying portable earphones since the early 90s, mostly Sony and their $100 models.In the past several years I've gathered Klipsch S4(great budget gear) then the V moda M80 for my first headphone and its great in a warm smooth way with plenty of great bass for my taste, and because it was on sale the Klipsch X5 which opened my eyes with the astonishing detail it relayed, and this made me want an over ear that was somewhere between the M80 and the X5. I wanted detail but also deep bass and something neither had, soundstage! Like many, I was looking around the $200 level and the real...
