    NAD VISO HP 70

    I agree the PX could be more comfortable. I think it's the weight and lack of padding on the headband. I bent the headband a little bit to the shape of my head and that made them almost perfect for me. Once in a while I still get a hotspot. Does the WH1000xM3 let you bake EQ into the headphone...

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Noise-Cancelling Over-ears

    I guess that's why it is the way it is... the test group/designers must have had no issue with the padding. Everyone's heads are different. For me, my gf, a few other people on this thread... the PX headband quickly creates a hotspot. I agree the earpads on PX are great. Impressive passive...

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Noise-Cancelling Over-ears

    Any advice/tips for dealing with hotspot? Shame these have such a painful, tiny headband when the P7 and P9 are nice and wide with plenty of coverage. Was browsing headband sleeves on Amazon, may give one of those a go...

    TMA-2 Configuration Advice Wanted

    I don't know if you ever sprung for these, but my advice would be S02E06. Amazing combination with the best sound stage of any TMA2 configuration. Yes I got everything and tried them all out like a crazy person Thank god for their 30 day return policy but hey that's exactly what it's for, on...

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Noise-Cancelling Over-ears

    Re: Neck wear, my GF pointed out I was doing it wrong and to fold the cups inward so that the speakers rest against your chest. Not how they fall naturally, speakers up, which I'd say is a design flaw but I also recognise the physics of metal earcups being heavier than earpads... maybe could...

    Bowers & Wilkins PX Noise-Cancelling Over-ears

    Ok, PX in hand so I can chime in... Agree 100% on B&W trending away from a neutral sound like the PM-3 for boosted bass. Better than any of the other ANC headphones I've tried but I do miss detail that I would otherwise get on the PM-3. Frogs by Charles Murdoch was playing and A/B on the PX all...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    Yeah, nothing is going to be perfect, especially since headphones are such a subjective arena. Has me eyeing the JBL Everest 700 since their app is supposed to be the best for allowing you to dial the noise canceling and EQ to your preference. But not digging the beats-ish look of them at all...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    Is the ANC better after 5.0.1 as well? Glad you had good luck with RMA, I got mine RMA'd after bricking them and the unit that came back smelled like smoke and wouldn't stay turned on :astonished: Anyway, at least BEO Care is friendly and always willing to help :baby: Have the units shipping...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    My process: Tried on android (droid turbo) and iPad (Air 2) several times before trying the battery in and out. It would always download quickly but often error while slowly installing the update. Sometimes when I restarted it would be further along in the slow bit (20-80%) and it would...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    Be careful if you're attempting the 5.0.1 update. After attempting the update over bluetooth several times between two different devices, BeoCare told me to remove and re-insert the battery. After that the headphone's won't turn on at all. Fingers crossed their warranty is sane.

    Sennheiser HD280 Pro or Audio Technica ATH-M50?

    Have had a week with the M50X so feel comfortable speaking to it... polar difference between them and my TMA2 setup. TMA2 is a relaxed sound emphasizing the midrange and M50X is the opposite with it's sucked/tucked midrange. Bass extension is much better on M50X but that throws off the balance...

    Sennheiser HD280 Pro or Audio Technica ATH-M50?

    AT says there's no sound difference between M50 and M50x (newer), listeners and chars say there's a bass boost on the M50x. Of course the only thing to do is put them on your head, but if you're into charts you can see the 280 is flatter and the recessed mids on the M50x are obvious...

    [FS] JVC HA-RX700

    Brand new. Got these to run art installations since they have good isolation, are super durable, have descent reproduction, and don't cost a lot. Didn't actually get around to using them because artists in my ART+TECH collective have been responsible and brought their own installation equipment...

    [FS] Sennheiser Amperior Headphones, Blue

    Have these and the original HD 25-1 II, since I really only use them for DJ and production I'm selling off the set with an inline mic. Great sound, metal casings do have a tighter bass response than the plastic shells but especially for DJ I've been sticking with the HD 25-1 II for the heavier...

    B&O H9 Discussion and Impressions thread

    Before a recent business trip I went on a headphone spree to compare the H9 with QC35, Momentum 2, MDR1000X. H9 was a clear winner in the sound quality department.   However, the touch controls are simply terrible. A single accidental graze against the side of the phones while on a call will...
