Ordered a set today (after my newly purchased Beats Stduio Wireless started making a whirring / thumping noise in the right ear

I ordered 2 pairs, one for a Christmas present and a pair for me to go along with my 1rbtmk2. Sometimes I want a little more bass

Would be good to hear a comparison between these and the 1rbtmk2.

When they arrive I will post my thoughts on both the 950bt vs 1rbtmk2. What i can say now is I did listen to them at Best Buy. The bass was definitely more pronounced on the 950bt with the button OFF. I will test them with different genres. Sometimes I want bass but not all the time. These will only be my hip hop, r&b, house cans. If you want a pair of wireless BASS cans that sound good too these 950bt's are gonna surprise you especially for $99. But remember you can't shut off the bass, you can press the button and add bass.
All depends on what you want (Bass cans or Sq cans).

They are not bluetooth, plus these rock! They are more for gaming.... 99 bux can't go wrong! If you want bass cannons that sound insanely terrific? Try denon ahd600 they rock sub-bass! My favorite phones ever!!!!!!!!

I received the 950bt's today. At 50% the bass does kinda over power the mids a little bit with bass button off. Sounds ok tho. Turn bass on and WOW. Sounds like my car when I had two 12" Alpine Type R's. Highs are good. Raise the volume and you can hear the mids better but it's loud. Not the best pair of cans if your only listening to classical, rock, bossa nova, jazz. But for what I bought them for (Hiphop, EDM) these are sweet. For $99 they are gonna be my new gym cans. For the other music I pull out my 1rbtmk2 where the sound is more open and crisp :)

Just received mine, first impressions (after 15min):


  • These are very comfortable and do not clamp.
  • Paired with my iphone 5s the volume is just a shade too low at top end.
  • With the bass boost button ON these are too boomy for my liking but I was prepared for that.
  • They look a little too bulky on my big head.


Will report back later when Ive hada longer trial.
