    VSonic VSD1/VSD1S Reviews/Impression Thread

    Hi n0str3ss.   I use them every day, and for me they still are an amazing bargain. I've compared them with the GR07 face to face,, and, may be the GR07 is a bit more precise (you have to look for subtle details to notice the differences) and equilibrated. Bass notes have more impact in the...

    Isolation: even,, and none of them excels in this aspect. Detail, SQ, Comfort, : Pro80. Build Quality: Pro 80 by a huge difference, moslty metal (aluminum and magnesium) vs fine plastic on the Senn..   For the genres you menction i would go for the open version of the Pro80, the HI2050...

    The Takstar, Technical Pro, Gemini Greathon, CyberX, Qpad Thread

    In a nutshell, HM5 is quite treble light, more or less on the "dark side" and Pro80 is much, much brighter. Bass is quite good in both of them, with more extension on the Pro80. Both have a very good middle range, but with the Pro favoring male voices.

    Closed. Flat response. Soundstage. Does something like that exists?

    Quote: I full agree with your wiev of the fullier bloodied sounding Shure in front of the more spacious AKG, but i would like to point another difference, the Shure fails a bit short in the low basses. AKG has a very good bass extension (provided you get a good seal), and shure has a...

    Help me decide between the AKG K550 or B&W P5

    My vote goes to AKG K550, mine sounds great, i prefer them to the P5 with a great difference, due to the higher detail and naturality the AKG provides. I've had not problems of fitting so far. Furthermore, here in Spain P5 is 300 euro and AKG 120 euro, a huge price difference.

    Best Headphone under $200?

    Quote: I have the AKG K550 and have had the opportunity to try the UE6000 many times. I prefer the sound and the comfort of the AKG by far, but as kman211 correctly points, probably it's a question of your personal preference. I find the UE6000 a bit far agressive and dark, may be better in...

    Disappointed with the AKG K550 – Where is the bass?

    I have both the Superlux 681 and the AKG K550,, and i consider the bass from K550 far better than the 681. The 681 has even les bass that the Samson sr850 (also made by Superlux). I thing you have a problem of sealing, as, once the K550 is properly placed over your ears, the bass, without being...
