  • Summary: I have always known that sony had some good headphones for studios. But as for the lower models I have heard before, they has not been much above some cheap Koss Porta Pro in the sound. So yeah I always stayed away from the Sony brand, until recently when I heard some z1000.
  • Pros: Small and light. Good looking in both versions. Laid back signature with good midbass and forward mids.
  • Cons: Cable controlls is not the best, also the plastic would be better in metal.

  • Summary: Source: iPod Touch 3G ALAC filled Amp: iBasso D12       Overall sound impression: As somewhat a treble head and one that crave for mid-range, I have always found getting suitable portable headphones rather difficult.
  • Pros: Great vocal performance, especially female vocal. Relaxed, smooth presentation with good speed. Open sounding
  • Cons: Isolation, Not sheep skin leather, Cable jack problem

  • Summary: Hearing new sounds. Do not realise how loud these can go - The clarify is up there all the way, its only when you take them off and realise "wow, everyone can hear this as clearly as I can" that I also thought "my ears are gonna be screwed if I use these often".
