    At CanJam @ RMAF 2012, Sony's Naotaka Tsunoda brought both the Sony MDR-7520 (left) and the MDR-Z1000, so that I could compare them both, as I'd initially thought both were the exact same headphone, just in slightly different liveries--they're not. They do sound different, my preference being for th

    Characteristics of Open Headphones

    I was reading another thread and someone recommend the Q701s so I read a review about them.  They sound like nice headphones so I wondered what sort of characteristics do open vs. closed headphones have?  I was a bit concerned by how delicate these cans seem to be by design since I'd have to put...

    Mid-centric closed headphones?

    I've been kind of out of the loop with new headphones lately, and am wondering what closed headphones out there are very mid-centric. I've owned the AKG K271s (which are great) and the Sony MDR-CD900STs (which are beyond marvelous), and I've heard, very briefly, Beyerdynamic DT48's, but I'm...

    Sony Fan Club!

    So guys, mind telling me why there isn't a Sony fan club? I'm pretty sure there are some sony fans out there, just wondering why I haven't seen one.  There seem to be ultrasone, grado, and fan clubs for specific phones though.    If you could tell me, thanks!

    Headphones to match Hifiman HM-602

    I recently got the HM-602 and I have sold out almost all my portable gear. I just find the sound of this dap to be simply great! The analogue-like sound of the non oversampling td1543 dac chip is just what I have been looking for. I enjoy it very much with Yuin G1A. This is my favourite. The 150...

    $300 RANGE (I am new to Head-Fi as well)

    I definitely do not consider myself an audiophile yet, but I am starting to develop my ear for it. I am on a serious search for some new cans. I've owned the Audio Technica M50s which I loved, but the wiring frayed in the input jack. So I am planning on getting those completely re-cabled because...

    Replacement Sony earpads

    It has turned out to be a particularly hot summer this year, and I am finding my MDR-7520 too hot to wear for hours at a time now. I don't think there is anything that can be done about the headband, but the earpads are replaceable. 1. Does anyone know whether the MDR-7520/Z1000 can use the...

    FS: Sony Z1000 3m 7N OFC mini-mini, mini-1/4 cable (price drop)

    It came with Sony Z1000, which I have given to a friend.    It's a high quality 7N-OFC Litz cord. 3 meters long. One end is standard 1/8 with 1/4 screw-on. The other side is a 1/8.    So works fine as an interconnect.  A decent upgrade for 1R as well

    (Q) Sony MDR 7520 or Sony MDR Z1000 replacement cable? (coiled or straight)

    Hi guys,   Sony tried to charge me £240!!! for the cable only!! And this is from 2 different companies. The 7520 costs around £400 here and it does not make sense that the cable is half of the cost, I will not accept that, it is CRAZY! They said that it is because the cable uses 'speclialist...

    Sony MDR-Z1000 for 250$ in India (It is a steal)

    As it turns out Sony is very kind with Asian's :P. I got the zx700 for Rs5200 in India around 100$. I wanted to get the z1000 but was sure that a $500 headphone in US would be around 600-650$ in India but I was wrong the z1000 was only made for Asia and all the US versions were imports and...
