    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 wired (Apple)

    I've had these for about 7 months or so and have pretty much used them exclusively at the office. I picked up a clam-shell case to keep them safe in my backpack which I will include. I have the original soft case and box as well as the foam for the ear cups which I always leave in when not in...

    Beoplay (B&O) H7's announced

    It's pretty early in the game and the audiophile cans are just getting started. I think we can only expect to see better offerings and cost to sound ratio as the demand for better sounding wireless cans continues.

    Beoplay (B&O) H7's announced

    I found the H8 controls awkward after using the M2 wireless but perhaps with the larger cups it would be easier. It boils down to sound for me, of course I would prefer to have that perfect blend of the H6/H8 in a wireless capacity but I'm not going to pay more and downgrade SQ so I can go...

    Beoplay (B&O) H7's announced

    I've owned the H8's, Momentum 2.0 wireless, and now the wired 2.0. After hearing the H6 in an Apple store I'm ready to part with my wired Momentum's. While I do enjoy the bass and energy of both the Mometum and H8, the lack of space between instruments, collapsed soundatage, and vocal clarity...

    B&O H8 Gray Hazel Wireless Bluetooth

    Selling a (almost) brand new B&O H8 in the gray hazel color. I bought these new about a week ago and did some listening at home with them for a few days and as amazing as they are the on-ear fit is just not for me. They are in perfect like new condition, flawless. Comes in original packaging...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 or M2 Wired

        After a month of going rounds with my obsession to go wireless I've reached the point where the trade off just isn't worth it for me. The convenience is fantastic but what I hear and what it costs just festers under skin for me.   I started with the M2 wireless and was underwhelmed...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 (Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones)

    Thanks for the feedback. I've been doing some reading and the comfort and sound sig seem to be enough for me to give these a go. Just waiting for amazon to get them back in stock. The M2w sounded pretty good for what they were but the top of my right hear was touching the driver and I just...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 (Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones)

    That sucks, I was hopping the fit and SQ would be about the same or close to. I also read in an amazon review that the H8 is a smaller version of the H6, making it an onear which is a big "no thanks" for me. Too bad, I was hoping this would be a nice alternative to the M2 which I don't think is...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    I should disclose that other then my $25 BT headphones for the gym I have not tested any others. I wasn't a huge fan of the original Momentums but thought they were decent sounding, ruined for me by ear cups that were too small. An issue fixed with these.   This. It's unfortunate but the...

    Audio-Technica W1000x

    I am listing these very low due to a few cosmetic deficiencies but will say up front they function and sound absolutely flawless! I am the second owner and evidently the initial owner did not baby these the way I do my headphones. The cosmetic flaws are minor but I'm anal and prefer to make sure...

    Amazon had 5 pairs of the ivory through one of their retailers earlier today.

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    Given what we got from them after the D3/5/7k my hopes are not high.

    Galaxy S4 and audio crackling issue with UE600

    OK, I know this is an old thread but my S4 (purchased new less than a year ago) is having this problem. I can hear a distortion or crackling with some female vocals and other guitar tones and elements within the upper mids. This is even there using usb otg with FiiO E17 and have heard the...

    Comparisons: 36 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around

    And there's battle for balance. On one hand I want something with a reasonably small footprint for portability and while on public transportation. On the other hand I am more concerned with SQ and of equal importance, something I can crank without leaking sound in a very quite office. Did you...

    Comparisons: 36 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around

    Not a big fan of the Sony house sound usually and I did look at those but read some comments about their character in their thread that put me off. Mostly like the p7 from what I ah e demoed so far so will probably go with that.

    NAD Viso HP50 : Another superb headphone from Paul Barton?

      The clamping is fine for most of the cup but the bottom portion does not have enough force to maintain a seal. Every time I turned my head the sound would change. I thought the PSB was much more comfortable in this and the headband fit.

    NAD Viso HP50 : Another superb headphone from Paul Barton?

    You should send me your pair to demo, I really want to see if they are worthy to replace my 940's. I'm a sucker for front row female vocal presence and nice dark space between instruments. In exchange I'll send you an 80% lower that you can finish for me ;)

    New Beyer DT1350

    I've only been listening to my shure 940's for the past several months but need something more portable for commuting. I decided to give these a go given the price and reviews. I received my pair from Amazon today and have only had a brief session with them but thus far am underwhelmed. They...

    PSB M4U1 - Thoughts?

    How do these compare to the SRH 940's? I love my 940's but wwould like a more comfortable headband and find female vocals to be somewhat nasaly. Beeng looking at these, the dt1350, NAD, and Momentum for use at the office.

    Shure SRH 940

    Selling my much loved 940's to try some new flavors. Comes with original box, both cables, case, and the extra pads unused still in plastic. The headphones are in excellent condition, no cracks or damage that I can find. Original pads are in excellent condition as well.

    Grado PS500

    Selling some Grado PS500's in excellent condition (no scratches or cosmetic/sonic defects) with the large G cush pads and original bowl pads. Amazing sounding headphones and I would not be selling them however I'm changing jobs and will not be able to listen to them at my new office. Price is...

    Westone 4 Impressions and Reviews Thread

    Oh yeah... now we're cookin with peanut oil. The W4's came today... (thank you for the 1 day early delivery amazon prime) and I'm loving them. If I had a complaint it would be a slight darkening in the upper mids that seems to slightly conceal some of the subtle vocal tones that while recessed...

    Westone 4 Impressions and Reviews Thread

    Quote: The SM3v2 certainly have their issues, yes they roll off up top, they have bass bloat but the vocals are sweet, the soundstange is pretty decent for an IEM and they render instrument and vocal timbre in a more organic way than the SE535. You nailed  it with the "unrealistic" quality...
