    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    These don't sound good without power. They will work but that's about it. Muddy is a great description of their sound without power. But they are not really meant to be used without power so this is only a last resort. See if you can hear them again but with power and the cable, or just via...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    Sorry I have not heard the latest Momentum products so I cant say myself. I know I have owned past Momentum models such the on ear version and have listened to various Momentum models in stores. I would say based on what I have heard the Momentum signature is maybe a bit more V shaped with more...

    SONY WH1000XM3 - better than QC35 in noise cancelling?

    Not sure what you mean? If you disable touch controls how do you control the headphone? Only function I can change is the noise cancelling button, so guess not. The touch controls are better than my 1000XM3 though easy less fussy.

    SONY WH1000XM3 - better than QC35 in noise cancelling?

    I listen at low to mid volume levels. Mostly classic rock, jazz, classical, folk, and a bit of everything else including EDM such as Infected Mushroom. I love a big deep bass and the 910N gets there but just barely so might not be the right headphone if you want more. I would say it is not as...

    SONY WH1000XM3 - better than QC35 in noise cancelling?

    That 25mm drivers is actually pretty darn capable. I own both models and the bass can hit almost as deep as the 1000XM3 it is just not over pronounced all the time like the XM3. I found even when I EQ the XM3 I can never get the treble to sound right because driver is just not tuned to allow...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    I tried the older CH700N and was not impressed with it at the time so wasn't willing to chance the newer model. Sounds like I was right in that decision. I actually liked h.ear models I have owned in the past albeit with issues which is why the 910N was something I hoped I would be able to try...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    Having owned the AD700 I know roughly how big the sound stage will be and so far I have not found an ANC headohome that can match that. Similarly the difference in V signature versus a flatter signature also impacts sound stage. Combine that with 10 years of using the A700 consistently and your...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    AAC loses some of the detail but has the same essential signature so he just might not like the Sony sound. Given the fact he has used the A700 for 10 years would probably play in to that fact. He also had lots of connectivity issues something that would drive me crazy. Fortunately I have...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    Your very used to ATH house sound. It quite a bit different from the Sony sound. I used to own the AD700, AD900 and enjoyed both and the AD700 in particular had a very wide open sound quality more so than the AD900. Band for the buck the AD700 was better and for me I liked it better sonically...

    SONY WH1000XM3 - better than QC35 in noise cancelling?

    I noticed a slight increase in treble and mids cleared up a smidge. They are still to dark for my tastes but better than before.

    Would love to see how good an Abyss headphone is. From the sounds of it the combination if detail and bass make this model a bass lovers dream headphone. And the scuffs from the jeep just give them a story. :-)

    What EDM songs have you had issue with? I dont listen to a lot of EDM but like the 910N with Infected Musroom and Glitch Mob. If you can give a good example I will listen to it to see what your hearing.

    Sony MDR-1AM2 - Impressions Thread

    If you like the 1AM2 and want a similar experience with better isolation the new WH-910N is much more balanced sounding than the 1000XM3 with about 75-80% of the ANC. Don't let its smaller 25mm driver fool you. It is probably the best sounding BT offering from Sony right now in my opinion.

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    Interesting analysis between the 1AM2 and 910N. So the 910N is a bit less V shaped from the sounds of it. Given that, ANC, potentially less wind issues, and BT use for out and about the 910N is just a better option for me which is probably why I am so happy with it. I love the Sony sound, but...

    Sadly that sale is US only. I will keep checking the Canadian site though just in case :xf_cool: .

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    Great price on the MDR-1AM2 BTW. I owned the 1R at one point. I found the upper mids and treble just a bit shouty and it whistled like mad outside and wasn't very isolating so ended up selling them. From memory this 910 has similar signature leanings. How does the 1AM2 compare signature wise in...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    Very true on all points. I too have had fun searching for the diamond in the rough. I also agree with the $50 price point. Most name brand stuff at that price range is usually pretty sad compared to some of the stuff coming out of China. BTW one thing I find annoying about the 910 and th...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    Interesting article about LDAC, https://www.soundguys.com/ldac-ultimate-bluetooth-guide-20026/ My phone automatically defaults to adaptive bitrate which according to the article means it will usually default to it lowest setting. It also defaults to 32 bit and 96, so I have played around with...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    The more I listen to these the more I like them. I ended up disabling the automatic feature because the beeps was distracting and it messed up a few times. But the wind setting helped reduce wind noise and so far these seem to handle wind better than the XM3. I gave my wife back the 1000XM3 and...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    Agreed on the sleeper hit. By far the best sounding headphone I have tried in a while. It's hard to tell they are on BT or ANC for that matter. It will be interesting to see what the XM4 does differently. If they keep the same signature as the XM3 then I won't even bother giving them a listen...

    SONY WH1000XM3 - better than QC35 in noise cancelling?

    OK, thanks to hifi80sman I finally found out the Sony 910N (h.ear on 3) is available in Costco US and Canada for $199 and $250 respectively. Between his glowing impressions and my curiosity how this new middle model would do with a new 25mm driver I bought a pair today. I have to blunt here...

    OK, hot damn do these 910 kick @$$. I dont care if their ANC is not good as the 1000XM3 nore that they have smaller drivers or less features. These have rhe best musical sound of any Sony I have owned in a few years. At $250 which is $200 less than the 1000XM3 here in Canada or the upcoming...

    Sony WH-H910N discussion.

    No doubt at full price these are probably only a good choice for those who really don't like the XM3 sound but like the Sony house sound in general. But at these prices these are a good budget choice that might sway a lot of people who can't afford the flagship. I am very curious to see if the...

    NAD VISO HP 70

    I like the HP70 a lot more than the 1000XM3 even though the ANC is not as good. The XM3 are just to bass oriented and dark with subdued treble. I also prefer the HP70 more than the AKG offering. I am very tempted to try the Sony WH-910N though as it apparently is not dark like the XM3 while...
