    I really wish I could be of more help here.  But since I've never owned the HD419, XB400, or MA100, I'm afraid I can't say anything definitive about them.  FWIW, both the HD 419 and the XB400 are known to be bassy headphones, so I would avoid them if you don't want overpowering bass.
    As for the HD 215, it tends to sound bass light for most people.  I personally appreciate it's fast, accurate and detailed bass presentation, but I'm funny that way.  If you do decide to get the HD 215, I would heavily suggest that you get an amp that is known for enhancing bass output, like a Digizoid ZO2 or a JDS Labs CMoy with a bass boost built-in.
    Sorry I wasn't more helpful mate, cheers!  [​IMG]

    well personal xp NO SONY IF U DONT WANT BASS TO OVER POWER on the other hand never needed any amps for my sennies :) that depends on consoles though. if u usin it on a 15k laptop like me u might need an amp or using it on a 30k phone u might not need it... :) sorry for the late reply busy with exams :D

    Hey, EVEN BETTER!  Be sure to come back here and post a link to it, if you want to that is.
    [​IMG]  WUT?  Are they made of diamonds or something?
  7. akash neagi
    I am using a galaxy s3,
    don't know if its 30k or not......
    I use a custom desktop with a creative sound blaster x-fi 5.1 sound card and a creative sound blaster digital music sx.......
    My laptop is a 3 year old VAIO but good sound quality......
    oh and I also have a kenwood multi-channel amp which I also use as a headphone amp...........
    I think he isn't using dollars........

    sorry warrenpchi my bad i was just lost in d moment used INR instead of USD :D Honest Mistake :D
  9. ravishkalra
    more than sufficient ur creative card is more than sufficient to get sennies up on d top :) im also using s3 it gives the PROPPPERRR CRAZZYYYYY FEEELLLL aswelll and if u want a low budget one go with philips shp2700 much cheaper but with nice heavy wires and GUD sound still better than sony any day :)

    LOL!  [​IMG]  Sorry guys, that was my American-centric thinking at work.  I should have realized it earlier, my bad.  [​IMG]

    I did some digging around didn't find a S3 made of gold but did find a 24ct gold bumper for just $100,
    and the most expensive "moded" phone I could find was an iPad with  Swarovsky elements for $2900,
  12. warrenpchi Administrator
    That's just... excess IMO.  [​IMG]
  13. akash neagi
    Hey guys anyone of you compared the hd215 with the hd280????
    I see that i can also get the hd280 in the store......

    I know that you are gonna start to get annoyed now but,
    I was also looking into HD439 and HD449.....
    when I said i don't want bass I meant not too much bass......
    the store said they may have a pair of HD439 they aren't sure......
