Summary: Good for people with wide range of music tastes. They can pump out some base when needed and reach those high notes with excellent quality, which results in a good balance. Can also play very loudly not saying thats a pro or a con just a fact. They also turn some heads with the red leather and carbon fiber mix.
Pros: Stunning is the looks department, Excellent sound quality at all levels.
Cons: Not quite over ear, but not quite on ear which sometimes can be uncomfortable
Summary: Phiaton MS400: Finding that perfect combination of comfort, portability, isolation, and sound quaility has never been easy, especially in the $150-250 price range. Phiaton, an upmarket audio branch of Korean electronics firm Cresyn, attempts to find the perfect balance with the strikingly pretty MS400.Build Quality: The build of the MS400 impresses right out of the box.
Pros: Great build quality, good comfort and isolation for a portable set, smooth sound
Cons: Off-neutral sound may not be to everyone's liking
Summary: Alrighty..... so I already own a pair of M50's, and as you may already know they are obnoxiously large and, well just obnoxious. I started looking for a pair of more portable headphones to replace my m50's on the go, and I was looking for a fun bassy sounding headphone. Well I got exactly that. The bass could be a little better at the extremely low bass, and it doesn't sound that airy.
Pros: Very nice small and portable, I honestly think its the perfect size, and the osund is nice and warm. Plus, it's fun sounding and at the same natural.
Cons: Slightly harsh treble at time, might just be my ears. Sometimes it doesn't fit around my ear normally and I have to play around with it.
I am often very focused on the aesthetics of my headphones. I believe the attraction is very similar to a women; its the initial feeling and as such I fell in love with these headphones at first sight. Though some might say the carbon fiber look is a little too much, I'd argue they complement and set it aside from other headphones.
Pros: Nice Highs, Good Clarity, Beautiful Design, Durable/Flexible, Nice Isolation, Not much leaking
Cons: Lows could better, Needs strong feed, Weak Hinges
Summary: I will make this review as short as possible. It should be referred as a guide to those who are unsure.
When phiaton ms400 was first released, i had hesitations in purchasing their top of the line moderna series headphone. After purchasing it, i was amazed by how strong and clean the low end was. The mids were buttery smooth. Highs were a bit laid back. After 100 hours of burn in, the sound has improved noticeably and highs came out smooth.
Pros: strong low end, fun sounding, comfortable, excellent design, good build quality
Summary: About me: Newbie audiophile at best, I've been rocking a set of Senn HD280s in silver for probably 7 years. I have never had an issue with build quality or sound quality, and have loved them since I got them. At the time, they were a good bang for the buck, and I still think that they sound great (at least my pair does!). I run sound from a MacBook Pro, and iPod Touch (gen1), and iPad (gen1) or my LG P999 through any number of players.
Pros: Look great
Cons: small cans, claustrophbic sound, muddy and unclear.
Summary: Couple things, I am an amateur audiophile at best and this is my first review so bear with me. My listening rig was my Sansa Fuze v2 Rockboxed [unamped] (I have a PA2v2 on the way so maybe I will edit this later on). Most of my files are all V0/320 MP3 and FLAC and include a lot of live recordings.
I bought these from Amazon Warehouse Deals in "like new" condition for $165.
Pros: Super stylish, very comfortable, decent isolation, good sound quality
Summary: Phiaton MS 400 (Moderna Series)
Moderna Series headphones are engineered with a carbon fiber enclosure for accurate response and high quality audio. Hear the finer music details for the ultimate listening experience at home, in the office or on your travels. Flexible ‘fold and go’ headphones fit conveniently into a compact carrying case for travel.
Summary: The sound of the MS400 is marginally better than the MS300, with better bass and a less colored midrange, but the highs are still softer than headphones like the v-moda M80 and Senn Momentum, which are already soft by hi-fi standards. Detail is a problem for the M400 as much as the M300, and at the regular price, is not a good value based on the sound.
Summary: While in Tokyo in the legendary Yodobashi store in Shinjuku I was browsing the extensive range of headphones, searching for the best quality portable headphones that could power an Ipod without an external amp and would pack a punch. I tried, Sennheisers, Grados, Audio Tecknika, the lot, and a company I had never heard of before drew my attention with its bright red headband.
