    ATH WS99BT Discussion & Impressions

    First of all, I only use them with HM5 angled leatherette, so I can't suggest any setting for stock pads. I do not do anything to their mids. At the beginning I was decreasing the low mids, but with the time the accent on the low mids went away (a comparison with a new unit showed me that it...

    ATH WS99BT Discussion & Impressions

    Defective? I had rather supposed that you are just used to much better (wired) HPs. It can also just be that you like the sound to be coloured and organized in a different way than the WS99BT do.   I have never noticed any particular difference between different devices with same codec while...

    ATH WS99BT Discussion & Impressions

    Well, you said upper and higher, not lower and higher :)   Let's go step by step. First thing, buy all possible HM5 versions (flat leatherette, flat velour, angled leatherette, angled velour, and flat hybrid) and see what happens. You should be able to find them in Amazon. If not, you find...

    How does the Warranty work in the US, legally speaking? Can a producer refuse to offer it?

    @mikaveli06, Yes I have told it already, I had contacted the seller. Anyway, I repeat, this thread is not about the seller. I do not review sellers. I have opened it just to understand if what A-Audio is doing is legal or not, so that I can write a more fair review. In the EU, refusing to...

    Audio Technica ATH-SR5BT: Discussion Thread

    You find their bass ok for hip hop out of the box? Or did you EQ them first? If you didn't, try pushing the bass with EQ a bit, try push only a part of the bass at a time to find the ideal result.

    ATH WS99BT Discussion & Impressions

    Where do you see that the pre-amp does not affect all frequencies? And which frequencies do you mean to be affected by the pre-amp? If this would be so, it would be worse. You would have 30db differences between the frequencies affected by the pre-amp and the other ones. As far as I know the...

    V-MODA CROSSFADE WIRELESS: Exclusive Preview, Videos, Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc.

    no. Holy juice what a misinformation on this thread. The codec of the music and the codec of the device have nothing to do with each other. If you have a headphone which uses aac codec as a Bluetooth transmission codec you NEED a source which uses aac codec as a Bluetooth transmission codec. If...

    ATH WS99BT Discussion & Impressions

    Well, your experience confirms that there is no universal headphone and confirms that ratings and rankings and "top best this and that" lists are useless. Yes please try the several hm5. And can you post your eq settings? Screenshot? Do your devices have aptx?

    How does the Warranty work in the US, legally speaking? Can a producer refuse to offer it?

    ProtegeManiac, I'm afraid I really didn't understand what you wanted to say. Anyway I didn't mean to make a USA vs EU case, nor I think EU is perfect (far from). I do think EU consumers protection and rights are generally speaking on a higher standard than in the USA (includind privacy rules and...

    ATH WS99 Replacement Pads

    yes, thick back. The concept is to create an angle so that the sound does not come from the sides but slightly from the front. In the case of this HP it is particularly interesting because the thin part is thinner than the flat HM5, and the thick part is thicker. So that at same time there is...

    How does the Warranty work in the US, legally speaking? Can a producer refuse to offer it?

     Thanks for the info.   Yes, exactly. when I review I only open the thing with the cables in the moment I must take pictures (generally right before returning). Anyway, as said, this is not the main point, they can say that you are supposed to look everywhere and period. We know they are not...

    How does the Warranty work in the US, legally speaking? Can a producer refuse to offer it?

    @DivaFonda , I do not use any social media and I am not into bombarding them nor am I asking you guys to do that. Actually, like ProtegeManiac said, it is better if they do not become aware of this thread, to avoid that they change the info on the website and then claim we lie. And to be clear...

    How does the Warranty work in the US, legally speaking? Can a producer refuse to offer it?

    Well, each Company says their product is the ultimate one. Anyway yes, they are kinda fishy.   Did you find any reference to authorised dealers or registration time limit on their website? It would be cool if you can give a feedback on that.   EDIT: I suppose that I am not allowed to post...

    ATH WS99 Replacement Pads

    Well, a check would be unusual, I am not aware of any reviewer paid for a review, and I would not see that as a good thing, because it's kind of a conflict of interests, although it is perfectly possible to be paid and still be objective. And it is possible to be not paid and be not objective...
