Solid Headphones

Troy F., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I think it might be worth while looking into a slightly longer cable so I don't have to relocate my computer tower to reach while I'm working at my desk.
  • Pros: Crisp sounds, deep base (for headphones), low volume bleed to other around you, solid construction, and a snug carrying case. The RCA jack is gold coated to resist corrosion and reduce electronic resistance. Compared to my other two headphones, the volume setting I need for desired sound density is about 10-20% lower. With seven hours of music logged so far, I am very pleased. Reproduction of house, trance, classical, classic rock, and a little heavy metal all make th...
  • Cons: The headphone to jack cable length seems a tad on the short side for use with walking. But then again, I'm 6'3".

  • Summary: I bought the SE-MJ591 at $300 USD then watched the price drop to $205 which I assume is permanent. I was astonished at the sound which seemed to have no treble, and with a treble boost was still quite dull. I found one test curve that seemed to confirm what I heard, yet this headphone has gotten some positive reviews that I cannot account for. The v-moda M80 is very similar, also treble-shy, but much better in treble, bass and everything else.

  • Summary: I picked these up based on the new rave review in Stereophile. I'm listening to these now fresh out of the box plugged straight into my iPhone. I've been on a kind of a little quest to find something good for mobile use out of my iPhone. Definitely mid-centric, but that's okay. Craftsmanship and SQ are top notch considering my application. I wouldn't use this on my home rig really, but for on the go with no amp I'd rate it 4.5 stars.
  • Pros: Excellent quality, design and SQ
  • Cons: Bass light

  • Summary: I am new here and had headaches reading about headphones. I am no audiophile and just have a laptop to enjoy my music from. No "gear" as yet. I love vocals so no V shaped signature for me. I had budget of about 250 USD and was looking for a closed can because, curiously, I thought that they sound better.
  • Pros: excellent sound,non fatiguing, Mids, Easy to drive, very musical.Forgiving
  • Cons: Retail expensive, light highs

  • Summary: Not the best spec wise but so much fun to use. Musically expressive with an emphasis in the midbands. Everything about this can is endearing. I find the 591's sound addictive and seductive.    A stand out product.
  • Pros: Musicality. Seductive sound. Enjoyable to use. Well made. Portable. Value.
  • Cons: Comfort for long sessions.

Good isolation,Sound ok

  • Summary: These headphones have good isolation and they look classy too. The sound is not revealing as other headphones i have. They come with a cable (that it would be difficult to replace as the jack it's a bit longer then normal cables) and a sturdy case. No Remote on the cable. Not bad but not my favourite too.

  • Excerpt: Я уже давно присматривал себе новые наушники, хотелось чего-то действительно стоящего а не сипло наигрывающих дешевок. Почитал на форумах и пришел к тому, что нужно брать Pioneer - очень уж много людей о них хорошо отзываются. С моделью тоже определился быстро - она мне сразу даже внешне понравилась, чувствуется что техника внушительная. Сборка на совесть, видно что на уши пошли недешевые материалы.
  • Pros: Великолепный голос, строгий дизайн, сумка в комплекте и возможность сложить наушники для удобного переноса, качество изготовления
  • Cons: У такой техники их нет

  • Excerpt: Те кто пишет положительные отзывы по поводу этой модели - это те, кто никогда не слышали истинного хорошего звучания. Цена явно завышена для них. Пытался их разогреть... Бесполезно, эффект бочки не уходит. Провод к ним сложно найти, а ломается он, довольно, легко. Считаю, что Pioneer облажались над этой моделью. Слишком много пиара и обещаний. А на деле очень плохо. Ставлю две звезды из-за того, что собраны идеально.
  • Pros: Качество сборки отличное, крепко сидят на голове (не слетают при ходьбе), провод не длинный, идеально подходит для прогулок. Отсоединяется провод, вполне удобно быстро снять наушники и сложить в сумку.
  • Cons: Звук - самое главное и это меня и расстроило. Эффект бочки присутствует постоянно, из-за этого низкие частоты практически не слышно. Как будто музыка звучит за стеной. Сцены, конечно же, нет. Прямой разьём 3.5.
