  1. Sennheiser MOMENTUM

    4.50 star(s)
    Sennheiser momentum has great, unique and premium design and build quality and a audio jack which is very interesting. The audio jack can be freely moved around. The cables are detachable. The soft leather padding adds even more premium feeling and comfort to it, however, it may slip in sweat, since the clamping pressure is average. When you first listen to them, you notice the dark sound with high resolution, without any sibilance. You realize that you're listening to high quality and clear sound which is worth £200+. It isn't like beats, which...
  2. Sennheiser CX 175

    4.50 star(s)
    Build, look and comfort: These iems look very nice, has unique design. The earpieces seem built sturdily, the cable seems durable. These are so comfortable that you mayn't feel they're on your ears after wearing them for some times. I would appreciate flat cable like mh1c or xb series from Sony.   Sound: before burning in, there's a very noticeable hiss in the sound, around 16khz. Feels like breaking glass or something like that.  After burning in, that hiss is gone. The sound is very warm now. Also, the sound is more veiled this time, before it...
  3. Monster Beats Solo HD (PRODUCT)RED Headphones with ControlTalk

    0.50 star(s)
    Build and comfort: These cans are compact. I don't know how durable these are. They seal good on ear and gives good isolation.    Sound: People are saying that beats have earth shattering and well extended lows. These are complete lies. The bass in non existant. What's existant is something heavily bloated around 150-350hz range. 150-300hz isn't considered bass (150hz could be). First time you put them on, you think that people who say beats are bad are lying. But as the music progresses, you feel everything being dissolved in that...
  4. Sony MDR-XB600/B Black | EXTRA BASS Headphones (Japanese Import)

    4.50 star(s)
    Build quality and looks: These cans look very stylish. I like the silver disk-like design on the top of the earcups, similar to xb90ex. These headphones are quite sturdy, I expect them to be durable.    Comfort: These are among the most comfortable headphones I ever worn. However, the synthetic leather pads could be uncomfortable for some since they could slip in sweat. These have good seal on ear and isolates well.   Sound: Here comes the important bit. The sound signature is dark and bassy, colored, with a big soundstage. Since these are...
  5. Sony MDR-1R

    these deliver a warm sound, which i prefer. still, sound is quite balanced. clear sound, open soundstage, crisp mids, looks nice, !comfortabe! sounds like what i like. didn't use these outside, so can't comment on isolation. as for the midbass hump, that just makes it sound warmer, which i love (personal preference).   some saying isolation isn't good. if isolation was good, i would give 5 stars.
  6. Xtreme Xplosives In Ear

    4 star for price.
  7. Sony MDRZX300

    2.50 star(s)
    for price, these could be ok. but i think there are more enjoyable ones in this price. why buy cans in low price? good cans would be £35 at least. get iems and enjoy.   had them for 2 days, returned them.  the sound is balanced, except the bass, they're lacking. the sound isn't warm, it's bright and annoying, so not nice to listen to. but does sound realistic.    update: hd201 is better choice at this price. al least, they're not as bright and more comfortable 
  8. Sony mdr ex 85sl

    3.00 star(s)
    first of all, i believe, sony wanted to make hybrid earbuds for a better sound my expanding the soundstage, however the strategy failed. the soundstage has improved (the large size helps a lot too), but the isolation lacks and the sounds are distant (they seem tiny as if they're far away). the ex300 and ex500 from sony offered better soundstage and isolation. as for sound, yes, it's balanced. but bass is lacking and doesn't sound warm and full. the soundstage is good, to me, it felt that the sound is coming from behind (can't remember, i had them 2...
  9. Sennheiser CX 300 II-Black

    4.00 star(s)
    firstly, i think, these earbuds have 9mm driver instead of a 13.5 mm one, which may be a reason for smaller soundstage. for the price, i expected a better soundstage, ex300s cost less, yet have better soundstage. The bass is good, goes low. highs and mids sound good too. SOME PEOPLE SAY THESE ARE MUDDY AND BOOMY, BUT THESE AREN'T CX300, THESE ARE CX300-II PRECISION. The sound is balanced, with nice bass. Not much detail though. but, a balance and clear music experience. Highs are sweet. burn-in helps these to become more balanced (could be an...
  10. Sony MDR-EX300/BLK Vertical In-the-Ear Style EX Style Headphones (Black)

    4.50 star(s)
    Not an audiophile. These are probably the best earbuds i owned (i dont have experience with hq headphones). For price, I think these are one of the best buds available (for sound) (i never listened to soundmagic e10).  Sound: Sound is warm, full, loud enough, bass has great depth and clarity, big soundstage (for price), the instruments sound detailed and realistic (for price), highs are sweet (some says "lacking", i say sweet). Build: The cable is poor, flimsy, they need very good care, use the case they come with. The case is very good though. The...
  11. SONY MDR-XB30EX-B Black | In-Ear EXTRA BASS Headphones (Japanese Import)

    5.00 star(s)
    here's a weird thing about them: these sounds punchy and more enjoyable if worn around the ear (worn somehow like se215), if worn normally, these sound little bit muddy and mainstream, unrefined and lacks punch. i don't know why, but it's true (might not work for you, don't blame me). wearing them around the ear is a bit tricky though!   Sound: After burn-in (and worn around ear), the soundstage is large, bass extended well and punchy. Good quality recording sound surprisingly good. Hard to believe, these sounded so muddy and dead after unboxing...
