    Meze Audio 109 Pro

    Focal Celestee is similiar in my opinion and cheaper. I think the original design of the Meze 99 classic for 300 is really special for its price bracket. For 1000 you can get the Focal Radiance which look better than the 109, but both are closed and its definitley a matter of taste.

    Meze Audio 109 Pro

    The Hifiman Arya Stealths are normally priced with 1800USD and are in sale for 1300USD and have a really good value. Like Resolve said the 109s are technically like the Hifiman XS which are priced with 500 USD, but Hifiman has a really good value. So thats a good thing. I have the XS and the...

    The Closed-Back Headphone Thread (Plus Comparisons & Reviews)

    My first impression with that TH900Mk2 was: god are these bright. I expected much more (rumbling) bass, but I think I'm used to this of my Focal Stellia. With the TH610 pads the brightness is much better and listening after a while I can understand that these cans are a thing, but my Focal...

    The Closed-Back Headphone Thread (Plus Comparisons & Reviews)

    After a few months with the Stellias I think the same, but dependend with the genre or kind of music I listened more and more to the Hifiman XS. I did not expect that. Sometimes I like more to listen with that 500 euro headphone than with a 3000 euro headphone. I bought the XS more or less for...

    Focal Clear OG in France at 799€ In my opinion best bang for the buck beside the Hifiman XS and better than Focal Clear MG. I bought it at 850€ and I'm really happy with OG, especially for that price. https://www.son-video.com/article/casques-hi-fi/focal/clear...

    Meze Audio 109 Pro

    I can understand your point and my opinion about the price soundwise wasn’t meant disrespectful because I said there is more than soundquality. Comfort, portability and quality. The other thing is that there are exceptional hps at 500 Euro like the Hifiman XS. I think that resolve meant the same...

    Meze Audio 109 Pro

    I had the chance to buy the Stellia new for 2000 usd and that was the reason why the Liric was the direct competitor. For me the Stellia is technical another league. That was the reason to buy the Stellia. I really liked the small form factor of the Liric. Build quality of the Stellia is...

    Meze Audio 109 Pro

    I think that says nothing about the 109. The Liric is sound wise heavyly overpriced. Build quality like a 2000 usd and sound wise like a 500-700 usd headphone. Especially if you compare to the Focals or Hifiman. So could be that the 109 is normal priced. Michaels reaction of directors Garage...

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    Hypetrains I agree with to you and I really don't like the hypetrain posts. In the Meze 109 Pro Thread the headphone is described by an enthusiast buyer as an 2000-2500USD headphone at a selling price of 800 USD and compared with the Empys and Elites. My tactic is simply to wait a while. The...

    Focal Utopia 2022 Review, Measurements

    Focal has no problem with big prices. Focal Grande Utopia EM Evo Speakers for 240 000 EUR, but I think in general that they have fair prices. Especially in comparision with other headphone manufactures and for its build quality in combination with good soundquality. The sale prices are very...

    New Focal Utopia for 2022: discussion, impressions, etc

    It could be that the best thing of the Focal Utopia 2022 is that the the old model will be cheaper. The same with the Clears, got my Clear OG this year for 850 Eur new :)So the Utopia 2022 is definitley good for something: Either it is better than expected or the price of the old model is falling.

    New Focal Utopia for 2022: discussion, impressions, etc

    Hmm I hope it’s not the same like with the focal clear mg with the recessed treble. The clear mg lost the sparkle and clarity. For me in direct comparison the og is much better. I love a good amount of bass, but without the sparkle the mg lost its magic, too. Could be that it’s the same with...

    Meze Audio 109 Pro

    Totally agree. Have seen the video of the two and for my taste it is going in a wrong direction. There were my favorite reviewer, but with the headphoneshow I have the feeling that they aren't independent as before. I think resolves ranking list is really helpful and honest. In general they are...

    Looks like the photo was taken at kopfhoererboutique :) :smile: but doesn't have to be (the user posted in the past a picture at kopfhoererboutique). The screenshot was totally random, but its funny because Oluvs face expression is like 80% in his videos. Not happy 🙃

    Dan Clark Audio EXPANSE Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    The difference is that 5290 CAD are 4000 USD. 4500 EUR for the Expanse are actually 4500 USD, but I think that the import taxes were compensated with the stronger Euro before. 4000 EUR were ~4500 USD in January. So I think the price must be ~10% more in Europe. With Apple, Sony products its the...

    New Focal Utopia for 2022: discussion, impressions, etc

    I think new Utopia looks much nicer. I don't like the carbon look of the old Utopia. The biggest disadvantage for me (and my big head) is that you couldn't bend carbon. The Focal stellia had too much clamp force for me and I could easily bend the metal direct above the ear cups at hinge...
