    Closed over-ear Headphones under 300 USD

          So just an update on this. I still have the NAD Visio's but have recently picked up the Meze 99 Classics and they have supplanted the HP50's as my "go-to" closed headphones.

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

      So you appear to slightly prefer "brighter" headphones over "warmer" headphones.....I'm the opposite and much prefer "warmer" headphones. I had the Beyer DT 990 Pro's and while they were nice at first they very quickly wore out their welcome with their "sparkling" highs. I also prefer the...

    Shanling M1: An iPod Nano Competitor / DAP || USB DAC || USB Transport || Bluetooth 4.0 + aptX || DSD

    So....a perfect match...albeit not the most "portable". The M1 hooked straight into the Meze 99 Classics. No additional amping (is that a word?) needed.   Just got my 99 Classics today and plugged them into my M1....wow, plenty of juice for these very efficient headphones......love the sound...

    Got my blue M1 from Massdrop yesterday. What a great little player. I had the M2 but sold it for the M1. No regrets at all and having the added bluetooth feature is a big bonus.

    ​Except that while the HD6xx is exactly the same as the HD650 the K7xx is NOT the same as the K701. Most think it's better....quite a bit better.

    While there is certainly nothing illegal about it there is often a vast ocean between what is legal and what is ethical.   A fool and his money are soon parted.   But it takes an unethical person to do the separating.

    I offered the guy selling serial No. 00002 on eBay $199 for them.

    Mine showed up today right on time. Unfortunately I was on the road all day so I'm just getting to them now. Listening to FLACS off my computer through an SMSL M6 DAC/AMP which has enough power. They sound great. Tomorrow I'll to some head to head against my K7xx's and Philips X1's.

      Yeah....that's not gold. Still looks good though. If it's working fine I'd just keep it. You can always get a custom case for it also.....then the color doesn't even matter.

      That still would not be proof you were one of the first 500. They received thousands of orders right when the drop started and it locked up their servers. Only Massdrop has an idea of who fell where with the orders placed (or attempted). So going back after your confirmation and seeing under...

    I'm a big fan of the NAD Visio HP 50's. Check out the reviews. I think it punches well above its price. Some people do have fit issues with them though. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

        Which = an HD650. I don't think anyone cares about the minor difference in the cable and the color. In fact most will prefer the shorter cable.
