Summary: One of the runners up in the best $300 over ears headphones for open clear sound (http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-300ish-headphone/) Came from using the Beyerdynamic 990 PRO before, got another pair since I really enjoyed the first. The construction is a bit different. They cover the ear a bit differently, as the PRO's are larger in circumference and don't have quite as much room in terms of height for the ears.
Pros: - Excellent sound quality, - Excellent build quality, - Made for audiophile tastes, if the appropriate supporting equipment is there, - Probably the most comfortable headset I've ever had on my head (have tried the Astro A340s, Beyerdynamic 990 PROs, Sennheiser HD598)
Cons: - Accentuates the treble a bit. I don't mind at all, but these aren't headphones for booming bass (I personally don't see it as a con, other buyers might), - Should break them in sound wise before accessing sound quality (let them run with music playing for 24H straight, i did notice a difference in sound after doing this), - Price, depending if you can get them on sale (I did from NCIX, cheapest I have ever seen them in Canada during the Black Friday / Cyber Monday d...
Summary: I've had these for a few months now, and use them extensively for both music and gaming. They're currently being powered by a Creative ZXR soundcard, which does an admirable job with the 600 Ohm resistance. If you're getting the 600 Ohm version, make sure you can run them. The sounds is outstanding, but may not to be everyone's tastes.
Summary: I bought this today because I want to use my Asus Xonar STX to it's full potential and I decided to replace by Corsair Gaming Headset with this pair of cans. This far I must say, I love these, give really excellent sound. Definitely recommend this to anyone whose looking for a set of headphones.
Summary: I've purchased the 600OHM version and got a sound card that supports it and it just sounds amazing! Please, if you are getting a pair of headphones of this caliber, purchase a amp or sound card!
Summary: Absolutely love these headphones! Using them with my xonar stx and the sound quality is right on par with what I've expected. The highs are sharp and the lows are clean! These headphones can handle anything you throw at it!
Summary: I'm not going to give a review on the sound they have, I will just say I have owned several pairs of audiophile headphones and in the 400$ range these take the cake for open back class cans. Obviously closed back cans would have more bass and a lower sound stage and open back cans are the opposite slightly subdued in the sub bass with a wider sound stage. Make sure you are getting the type of headphone you actually want before spending 400$ on a set of cans.
Pros: Very light and comfortable, well built design and of course good quality materials., NCIX took decent care as always with the packaging, when the box came to my door it was banged up a bit but the damage to the outer box left the headphones box completely untouched ''not even a scratch on it''
Summary: The DT990 is my first HiFi headphone after the AKG K181DJ and also my ticket into the world of Head-Fi. First off, I have to say that my impressions are pretty consistent with what seems to be the mean impression out here on the web; I tried out al sorts of headphones that were comparable in price before deciding on the DT990.
Summary: I would make it short.
1.This headphone has strong resonance in 80~100Hz, you would need a very strong amp to overcome the emf, or would got a notable unnatural bump in upper-bass.
2.About the infamous recessed mid- I guess it's a slight,but critical QC fault:
Inside leather bag, the humidity is been lower than normal condition by desiccant,makes the damping coating on the diaphragm lose it's function, just need sometime to got proper work.
Pros: Total clraity tone、ultra transient, froward,focus,but relex present
Cons: Very pickly (about amps), Headband permeant sweat,sensitive about environment humidity
Summary: These are my first audiophile grade headphones so forgive my vocabulary.
I use them primarily to listen to Trance.
I have no other headphones to compare.
They are paired with a Millet Hybrid MiniMax Amp.
I will just say that for my listening choice these headphones feel perfect. The bass is mostly clear and precise and goes as deep as necessary. They bass isn't too much where it hides the rest of the music. It feels natural and just a part of the flow.
Pros: Vibrant, Deep clear bass, sound stage is huge and very accurate, precise no wasted enegry.
Cons: Some sweat and slight ear fatigue (room is hot). Highs can be too high for some.
Summary: It's been a long time coming this headphone, and I've finally pulled the trigger on this pair.
I'm in Australia - where the retail prices of these cans were ludacris (AUD$347) - and they were on 'sale' for AUD$249 when I got them. Still daylight robbery, but I thought for the comfort and convenience of local warranty...
Pros: Soundstage - amazing. Good bass, great separation of instruments, and beautiful albeit recessed mids. Comfort!
