Head Gear Reviews by MrTechAgent
  1. FIIL Wireless

    4.00 star(s)
    The FILL Wireless is a very capable and a genuinely nice Headphone. It offers pretty good Sound with the help of the Active DSP but...it is in serious trouble because of it's price and rivals.  Let's talk about the FIIL Wireless in detail -  Comfort - FIIll calls the Wireless an "Over-Ear" Headphone, this is going to be my main point of criticism. I understand why Manufacturers avoid to make bigger Earpads for Consumer Headphones, they want to reduce the footprint, at the same time the sacrifice of Comfort isn't a smart move for a Headphone...
  2. Beyerdynamic T5p

    1.50 star(s)
      Never thought this day would come but I guess blunders are inevitable. There is no denying the Beyerdynamic T5p is one attractive looking Headphone, I think it's among the most beautiful and understated looking Headphones ever created. Beyer outdid themselves with the Tesla 1 and Tesla T5p Mesh designs. I personally love the design elements of the T1 and T5p but this is the place where it's resemblance with the T1 ends.  Comfort and Isolation -  In the ever growing trend of "Closed-Backs" sounding "Semi-Open" the T5p manages to be fully...
  3. beyerynamic DT 150 Compact Closed Headphone (250 Ohms)

    5.00 star(s)
      A name unfamiliar to most. DT150 is not something that is on everyone's radar partly because it was made from the stuff of the future in 1968 and comes from a Legend whose track record and contribution to the industry is overlooked to such an extent it makes me loose hope and instill a sense of understanding that if you think it's classy not to speak much, you won't ever get the recognition for your work if you had done the opposite instead. From the sole perpetrator of the Polymeric revolution for his Electrodynamic contribution, DT150 is the...
  4. Xiaomi Mi Headphone

    2.50 star(s)
      "Headphone Industry" nowadays is filled with dimwitted, dopey, stoned hipsters who think they can make headphones. This is a trend I noticed in the last 10 years of Headphone Manufacturing. China is a great place for these hipsters to go and start manufacturing and contribute nothing to Headphone Technology. Xiaomi being a Chinese company thought they needed to contribute something to this industry and this is their gift to us all!   Build and Design - Blend of metals used, Aluminium, Spring Steel and Brass. Being a Brass fan, I appreciated the...
  5. Sony DR-S5

    I don't have time to fool around with irrelevant stuff, I'll just get to the sound.  This is a corrected response I was able to come up with based on Dale Thorn's "Headphone Correcting" system. Sound -  It was hard to get a good response from this headphone, drivers are very poor quality. There's a lot of Sub-Harmonic distortion, excursion hits at 350Hz at relatively low SPL. So any energy from that range to below will result in over-riding and rattling. Keeping that in mind, I came up with a response relative to my other Neutral responses...
  6. Sennheiser HD530

    3.50 star(s)
      Yes, HD530. Before I start I want to go over some things, Sennheiser is one of the big names that really let themselves go. They went from making very good, I'm not going to say great but good headphones.  Their current line except a few is almost hilarious, they went from making HE-60s to then giving us the HD800.  The HD650 was my first HiFi headphone, sentimental value aside all Sennheiser headphones are insignificant.  I'm known to be harsh so if you want a ruthless yet honest review then keep on reading or else leave, just saying cause...
  7. Beyer Dynamic DT 990 Premium 600 OHM Headphones

    4.50 star(s)
    Beyerdynamic. A company that really "Invents" and "Innovates" unlike the other crap you see today that people here go mad for. I won't take any names because you see, people here are sensitive. Anyway, to the point. The DT990 is one of the oldest Dynamics still in production. The Legend had to retire.     If we know our history, which many here don't know. Beyerdynamic didn't believe in Electrostatic Headphones. They did make a ET1000 due to demand but that was a very brief run. From 1937 Eugen Beyer was very keen on making Dynamics sound...
  8. Sennheiser HD 598

    2.50 star(s)
          Want to preface this by presenting this picture, I'm not a TROLL or a A-Hole, I just like to mock the fu** out of headphones I dislike. This time its time for the "Fehlerhaft HD598".   I'm a fan of the 580-600-650, I own all of them. The 598 is interesting because it sounds crude. Coming from Senn I was surprised by how bad it sounded..the first day I got them I was certain I had a defective unit, so I went to Senn and was able to convince them I had a faulty pair. They gave me a new one after a week, I was sure my first 598 was broken...
  9. Beyerdynamic DTX 710 Trendline Stereo Headphone

    5.00 star(s)
            Man are these awesome , they're cheap..but as all Beyers they sound fu**** awesome , these are clean , fun and dynamic , they sound excellent Let me preface this by telling this review is with the stock pads , the video review below will have a review with the ED990V on , the stock pads sound the best and my current orientation is with them.   These are just excellent , I can't stress that enough , they outperform my zx700s , HFI-450s and Denons that I have , the bass on these exude quality , they have no accentuation , its just clean...
  10. Beyerdynamic DT 102 (400 Ohms)

    4.00 star(s)
        Quick Disclaimer - I don't make reviews of stuff so fast , since I accidentally got the 102s instead of DT100s Stereo , I have 3 days to play around with this until I get a replacement , so why not make a review ? What is this thing ?  Well ....its a classic , I'm a fan of classic DT Models  and it doesn't get more classic than the DT1XX , the 100 was the second headphone ever made my Beyerdynamic after the DT48 , if I remember the 48 was launched in 1937 , the 100 was launched in 1960 and its still in production , the 102 is the single ear...
  11. Denon Urban Raver In-Ear Headphones, Blue (AH-C100BU)

    2.50 star(s)
        Since this is a IEM review I'll keep it short , I have no respect for IEMs ...I wish I could use headphones in the bed but since I cannot I have to resort to IEMs , not a IEM guy  I picked her up in between $30-40 so it was a fair deal , the Denon's come in a nice box , a very nice one ...good stuff in it too so I was quite happy , the sound was decent too , the thing I hated was the awful comfort , not a negative design so I can understand that it's not a perfect bed headphone but they never fit , I tried those stupid comply tips and found...
  12. Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

    5.00 star(s)
      The one who started it all, the 650s was a unexpected purchase for me, I was 16 back then when I got the 650s , the only nice headphone I had was the v6 and a cheap Supra Sony but since I was building a nice PC at the time, I decided to invest in some Audio , wanted to get the best ....Initially I was gonna get the hd800, the price wasn't a issue since I had a huge budget but I decided to invest that elsewhere and got the 650s instead, these in one word are my "Favourite" Headphone, love them.   To the sound , I always thought the 650s were a...
  13. Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro - 600 ohms

    5.00 star(s)
      880s are part of the classic trio , 6XX-7XX and of course the 880s , I have all those headphones , my all time favourite might be the 650s but I have tons and tons of respect for the 880s  Here I have a pretty rare 880 , this is a PRO-600 which is pretty hard to get nowadays , I am quite lucky to have these classics , there are many Mid-Fi open dynamics but ..., I will name some I hate ...ma900s (These are so harsh and grainy that they abuse my ears) , X1s (Too bassy with very poor transition into the lower mids) , AT Air's have a good extension...
  14. JBL Synchros S100a

    3.00 star(s)
        Like all JBL products , performance is the last priority, the S100a does one thing good ..that's rock , the treble is not that grainy , making it excellent for rock , its rolled off too not in a bad way , its the 6XX roll off , almost perfect roll off ....which is very odd for a IEM like the S100a    I really enjoy it , very good indeed ..I think it should sound excellent with a nice neutral low OI amp    The mids are a great , they are not distant and recessed like some IEMs .....they don't sound thin or overly thick , almost perfect ...
  15. HiFiMAN HE-300

    4.50 star(s)
      The HE-300s are one solid dynamic HiFi headphone , like most HiFiMANs I have tried "Treble" is the focus , very clean clinical and articulate but at the same time its not metallic or plastic sounding , Dr Biang sure has impressed me , before I get on I have to preface some things    1) The HE-300 has many revisions , according to HiFiMAN they haven't changed the drivers but that seems to be false , REV-1 and 2 were supposed to be warm and fun sounding with nice bass extension , the REV-3 or the version I have is completely different from "FUN"...
  16. Ultrasone HFI-450

    3.50 star(s)
      There are many great headphones in this SUB-$150 category , I have a good amount of headphones in the range and have tried a good enough of them to know what to expect in this category  The HFI-450 remains to be one of my favourite because of its unusual characteristics , hard to see in this price range  The first is the grain , its almost grain free , technically it should mean its transparent hence it should image well , well ...it doesn't because of the crazy roll-off in the highs , neither is it 2db nor 3 db its way more than that  I...
  17. Sennheiser CX 180

    2.00 star(s)
      What a bizarre sound , I have owned a bunch of cheap IEMs and the only one that stood out was the one which came with the GS4 , since all of them were made by multiple OEMs it was hard to find a consistent sound out of them ...that IEM was a monster in disguise , there are many things I want to say about it but since most of it may seem as exaggeration its best to leave it at that  After they broke I wanted a IEM with a negative design like the EarPods (Perfect for laying and listening) , the only one in my budget was this cheap Sennheiser So...
  18. JBL J46BT Bluetooth Wireless In-Ear Stereo Headphone

    2.00 star(s)
        Welcome to another review , today we have the J46BT IEM by JBL   I will have a video review linked to this review soon but ...that's the future , this IEM was quite interesting since its main goal was to compete with the much loved Jaybird Bluebuds X phones which are loved by many , I was expecting a lot but unfortunately the result was intriguing    Ergonomics are so poor it makes me think "What were they thinking" the width of the driver might be at least 2 cm or something , its wideeeeee hence you don't get a negative design if you are...
  19. BRAINWAVZ HM5 Studio Monitor Headphones

    4.50 star(s)
      2nd Review lets do this    Instead of talking about the stuff that I have talked about in the video below , will focus here on sound    The day I got them I remember the first session with it was listening to "Live in Paris" by Diana Krall , I was stunned my the smoothness it had , just a very smooth and enjoyable tone , the bass in tracks like 'Lets Fall in Love" and "The look of Love" just sounded exceptional and very well extended , the bass reminded me of my 650s just a bit withdrawn in the Sub-Bass    To be really honest , its one of the best...

                                                                                                  Hmmm , first review on Head-Fi :D Alright little information about me , I am 16 from India ..... recently got into HiFi , although I once had the ESP-950 which my Dad bought when he visited the states a long , long time ago anyways my journey began in 2012 fall when I was in the process of finding the "one" headphone yes "one" :P Well that was the 650 , before that my first headphone or proper headphone was the v6 which died on me so naturally I had to...
