Conclusion: Hence: The PX 100 is not just the clear winner among these three, but a great product
in objective terms too. Quite cheap, good sounding, insensitive to ear shape, and it
folds up in the same nifty way as the other two.
Excerpt: These comfortable headphones are an improvement over the sets that ship with players, but they provide accurate sound at only a narrow volume range. They fold up, but it isn't worth bothering with the cumbersome storage case. Adding an amp did not yield much improvement.
Summary: I bought these because they were cheap. Yes, $60 is cheap in Korea for entry-level audiophile cans, due to horrendous import taxes. I chose the PX-100s after a good hour of A-B comparisons in-store with their rivals, principally models from Koss and Sony.
Pros: Light, portable, good sound quality for the price
Cons: Lack some sparkle at the top end, no isolation whatsoever
Summary: The PX100 is proof that something quite cheap and simple can provide as much enjoyment for the end user as something significantly more expensive. That's not to say that they're on the same level of quality as a higher end product, you do get what you pay for. It's a mental thing.
Pros: Pleasurable dark Signature, BASS, Comfort, Portability, Value, Replaceable padding, Built quality
Summary: I´ve owned these little bastards many years now, and loved every minute. They are compact in size, but huge in sound. And i mean hu-ge!
I remember when i bought these for travelling and to-go-field recording and just could not believe my ears.
Summary: The PX100s were the second decent portable headphone I bought after the KSC75s, a silky-smooth contrast to the shiny, aggressive sound of the Koss clip-ons. This particular review was written when I was very new to the world of Head-Fi but in general I stand by it.Build Quality: Designed to be...
Pros: Extremely lightweight, comfortable, and portable; smooth and enjoyable sound
Cons: Quite dark, rolled-off treble, bloated low end
Excerpt: The PX 100s are the most unassuming-looking and least expensive headphones in this roundup: just a simple stainless- steel headband and open-backed earpieces with foam cushions. They're light and comfortable on the ears; they fold into a small, hinged plastic case; and they sound terrific.
