    Sennheiser HD 490 Pro Plus coming?

    Interesting how actual graphs from analysis done vary greatly from what Senn says their response is. Their version of the response made me think they had more sub bass extension than all of their other open backs. It continues to be a tie between the HD660S2 and the HD58X for having the best...

    Thanks GC335 and everyone involved. Great testing done that day. Learned a lot about new gear.

    4th Annual Wicked Schiit Meet - New England - Oct 21, 2023

    Would love to attend this. Bringing my Audio Technica ATH-SR50, with Meze 99 pads (the best under $200 set of closed can mods, ever, IMO). I'll just have them on as I walk around, other will be welcome to test them and forever ruin any other under $200 closed they put on after that.

    Sennheiser HD 300 Pro Review and Impressions Thread (HD 250 Linear Revival )

    Yes, mainly mid bass. That said, having compared both, these things stand out. The HD300 is more flat, very honest sounding. The treble is also a bit more extended - yet also smoother and more "expensive" sounding. It's much more spacious sounding, almost 3D but very, very realistic space, not...

    Neumann NDH 30

    I really hope they make a black version soon, with its own hard case. Additionally, if Dekoni or another could make alt pads that would be great. I mean the pads on these felt great and do the job but Dekoni is hit or miss. Some of their pleather or fenestrated will beat fabric / furry type pads...

    Sennheiser HD 300 Pro Review and Impressions Thread (HD 250 Linear Revival )

    I rarely mix on headphones, they are more to check mixes. Being concerned about ever needing to potentially mix amd master on cans, I found some go-too's. Senn HD59X for long laid back listening, comfort, when I want an open back. AKG K371, for brutal honesty. The AT ATH-SR50, with Meze Pads...

    (updated 1/23/24) Audeze - Our Maxwell Gaming Headsets! (Firmware v56 and HQ v86)

    I'm not a Gamer, but as someone who liked Audeze prior gaming headsets for audio quality, the earcups didn't extend far enough (I've that same issue with the LCD-1), I'd consider these if the new headband extends farther. Mainly for audio listening (BT, USB or 3.5). How do they work for 3.5...

    AKG K361/K371

    Consider Audio Technica ATH-SR50 (wired version). $150 or less on Amazon. You must get $20 Meze Standard (not small) pads on Amazon to put on them. Returnable, if you don't like them. Those create one of the lightest most indestructible, comfortable & roomy ear cup pairs I've heard. Air on top...

    Focal Bathys - Wireless ANC Over-Ear Headphone

    I edited my post. I meant the PX8 and I can't recall exactly but heard at least a few say they liked the B&W better. Not all share this. The video review up there was positive.

    Focal Bathys - Wireless ANC Over-Ear Headphone

    Thanks for the review. It sounds like a physical V2 could be on the way based on that. If I'm going to pay $800 USD they can't lose to far less expensive models like that.

    Believe it or not, the Audio Technica SR-50 (wired, not BT) for $129 with $20 Meze ear pads (standard, not small), both on Amazon, both with free returns. You can buy, try, and return if you don't like. If you like great sub bass with solid mid bass that's not overdone, 3D sound (for a closed...

    Introducing the HIFIMAN Sundara Closed-Back

    Amazing to hear that review call them bright in the high mids while others here felt the exact opposite up there. Maybe there is variation pair to pair?

    Ibasso SR2...... 🍀 🇺🇸...here 😳

    It seems the Neumann NDH-30 could be direct competition in price and design. A bit more open, maybe slightly heavier, but a lot of similarities. I tested them, they're great.

    Neumann NDH 30

    Interesting. Thanks. I'd thought that since the stock NDH-20 silver originals were not balanced internally, the $100 more expensive black upgrade NDH-20 were advertised for being internally balanced wiring, that the NDH-30 would follow that plan. Start out silver with unbalanced wiring, offer...

    Tried Neumann NDH-30 at AES NY 2022. The best open back under $1,000 USD I'd heard. They'd be a great update to my Drop HD58X I prefer to the 500 and 600 series. Also prefer to horribly peaky HD700, and bass lacking HD800 /800s. HD820 competes, but cups don't extend far enough for my head. They...

    Neumann NDH 30

    Tried Neumann NDH-30 at AES NY 2022. Told rep they should make it in black, with upgraded, balanced inner wiring. They say it's a possibility one day. I will wait for that. Each review I have seen anywhere, even Sound On Sound mag's reviewers who tend to be very honest, are how great these...

    Focal Bathys - Wireless ANC Over-Ear Headphone

    The review posted previously saying they have the best ANC and beat the Mark Levinson for resolution is huge. I've been waiting for a higher resolution pair of wireless for a really long time. These may be it. The EQ seems to have more than enough bands (too many stop at just three) but of...

    Focal Bathys - Wireless ANC Over-Ear Headphone

    This looks promising. New headband design means maybe the cups will extend far enough for longer heads to reach the ears properly. I can remember being at the Focal booth for CanJam NY, and making it known after I tried on every headphone there how adding just 1/2 inch of travel to each side...

    Meze Audio 109Pro - the all-new Dual-Composites dynamic headphone

    Nearly perfect. I bit more below 70 hz, and around 2 khz and a bit less about 12-15 khs and they'd look perfect. Subjective sound is always another story of course.

    AKG K361/K371

    Go back a page or so to my info on the AliExpress pads. They sell two, the "original" are a bit more expensive and better. The best pads I've ever put on the AKG 371 with both comfort and sound. Closer to the original sound than any other. Slightly softer & similar or very slightly thicker, for...

    Sennheiser HD 300 Pro Review and Impressions Thread (HD 250 Linear Revival )

    UPDATE - Guitar Center has these on display. Tested. Earpads still don't extend far enough down for my long head, and they clamp is still brutal and not easily fixable. I wonder, anyone possibly tried softening its plastic extension bands very carefully with a high heat source (hair dryer, heat...

    AKG K361/K371

    They are similar thickness to the originals. I have large diameter ears but they don't stick out far so these have it so my ears just barely touch the driver sometimes, if put on certain ways. I still can adjust my way out of it. Dekoni are less shallow, but more narrow, so those are probably...

    AKG K361/K371

    Alright. JUST after I posted that, these ear pads just arrived from AliExpress / www.aliexpress.com/item/3256803016478903.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.8a511802uQbc3d Dammit, there goes those Dekoni Sheepskins. I liked them better than the stock because they didn't get permanent indentations or...

    AKG K361/K371

    I tried the Yaxi stPad2, and noticed the sub bass increase. I love bass, especially low sub bass, and perhaps because of my height I have longer middle ear canals. It was way too much sub bass vs. the rest of the spectrum (which seemed distant and anemic in comparison though not necessarily...
