    Review by 'marleyfan' on item 'The House of Marley Liberate XL BT'

    I was looking for a pair of BT headphones on a budget and saw these on sail on Cyber Monday.  While waiting for them to arrive I read a lot and liked what I read about the Jabra Move, which were about $50 cheaper. So I grabbed a pair of those and when HOM's arrived and I was able to compare the...

    I was looking for a pair of BT headphones on a budget and saw these on sail on Cyber Monday.  While waiting for them to arrive I read a lot and liked what I read about the Jabra Move, which were about $30 cheaper. So the HOM's arrived and I was able to compare the two.     Look's wise the HOM's...

    The Beyerdynamic Tesla DT 1350 Impressions thread

    So my Shure SRH 840's bit the dust and I was in the market for new cans. I purchased and compared the AT M50's, Sure 750DJ's and the Beyerdynamic DT1350's.  The AT's were by far the most comfortable of the three and I liked the sound.  The 750DJ's went back right away.  I just didn't like them...

    Bowers & Wilkins in-ear headphones = C5

    I picked a pair of these up today.  Here's my initial impressions, although I really don't have a great deal to add.  First a bit about me. It should be noted that I am no audiophile, but I know what I like and I rarely find it.  I am 50 yrs old so my ears are not what they used to be (too much...

    Headphones you regretted buying the most

    This thread highlights how different peoples tastes and opinions are. Several posts for Shure 840's as regrettable choice; I love mine. Posts both for, and against MS1's. I regret ever buying mine. Other regrets: Shure e2c (muddy bass), JVC Air Cushion (or whatever they are called-terrible)

    Got'em for the Dad's turn...

    Sorry, I actually meant the ATH-M50. I haven't heard the M40. But I liked what I heard from the 50's. I think they can be had for just over $100 in the US.

    Got'em for the Dad's turn...

    I can't speak for the SR60 but I do own a pair of MS1's, which I've had for a couple of years. I like their clarity but I find them too harsh for my taste which, by the way, is the same as the OP. They are also missing that bass kick that I like. And make no mistake, they leak. I found myself...

    Shure SRH840/440 vs Audio Technica ATH-AD700

    I paid 199CAN for mine. I find it hard to believe you got the 840's for that price.

    SRH840 impression

    Just got my 840's today. Futureshop (yes, Futureshop of all places) had them on for $199, down from $250. I wish we could get US prices here in Canada. Everything is more expensive here dammit. Anyway they sound pretty awesome out of the box. I already like them way more than my MS1's. I am...

    Shure vs. Audio-Technica vs. AKG vs. Sony vs. Sennheiser

    I too am debating between the Shure srh840 and the AT ath-m40. I have listened to the AT's at Long and McQuade and I like them a lot. I have not yet heard the Shure's. I can pick up the AT's for 175.00 and the shure for 199.00. Both Canadian prices. Any recommendations?

    ath-esw9 vs ath-m50

    Thanks again. I pretty much hate coiled cables. I'd rather have a cable that's that's too long than coiled. Thanks to all for helping me make my decision. Now I just need to find a good deal.

    No appreciation thread for Audio-Technica ATH-M50?

    I posted this question in another thread but it seems more appropriate here. I currently have MS1's, I realize they are open and the M50 is closed but am I likely to be disappointed with the sound of the m50 compared with the ms1? The MS1's have amazing clarity but I am underwhelmed with the...

    ath-esw9 vs ath-m50

    Thanks for everyone's input. After looking at the link provided by Lefty I think I'm not gonna take a chance. Was looking at these: Audio Technica ATH-ESW9 Studio/Luxury Headphones on (item 250549080127 end time 22-Dec-09 21:00:10 EST) But after seeing the plethora of fakes I don't...

    ath-esw9 vs ath-m50

    How does one make sure they are not fake? It is an ebay purchase I'm looking at. I know that some sennheiser fakes flooded the market (cx-300) but is this a problem with Audio Technica?

    ath-esw9 vs ath-m50

    Hey all, sorry to start yet another this vs that thread but I really want some input before I purchase. I'm looking at the two mentioned headphones. I will mostly be playing out of my zune through an XM4 amp. I play mix of music but mostly in the rock/alternative rock genre with lots of acoustic...

    Sennheiser HD238 Precision review: PX100 on Steroids?

    How would the HD238 compare with the Alessandro MS1? I currently have the MS1 and am not particularly happy with the bass. I find them somewhat harsh in the trebles. I am running out of a zune into a Practical Devices xm4. Would the HD238's be a step in the right direction?

    Has anyone heard of Metawerks headphones? Tom Lee music has a pair of METAWERKS AUDIO MH57 Professional Studio Headphones. They have a list price of $149 but they are blowing them out at 29.99. Anyone have any experience with these? The pic looks like they are AR phones. Could these be a low...
