  • Summary: I Ventured to buy those headphones fater a massive discount in pre-christmas sales here in mexico, for $178 USD i consider them to be a great buy   The construction of those cans seems to be aluminum and plastic mix, the band is alumnum as well as the ear cups, the joints are plastic, overall they feel fragile, so I try to take great care of those, the good is that they feel very light.
  • Pros: Natural sound, big soundstage, right amount of bassm comfortable
  • Cons: Jack connection feels flimsy, overall they feel fragile

  • Summary: these deliver a warm sound, which i prefer. still, sound is quite balanced. clear sound, open soundstage, crisp mids, looks nice, !comfortabe! sounds like what i like. didn't use these outside, so can't comment on isolation. as for the midbass hump, that just makes it sound warmer, which i love (personal preference).   some saying isolation isn't good. if isolation was good, i would give 5 stars.
  • Pros: warm, soundstage, balanced, mids.
  • Cons: nothing

  • 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. I did like them quite alot for all the detail and the over all look(abit boring but simple). But they lacked some bass so I did put the thought off buying them, also very expensive in Norway.
  • 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: Coming from balanced armature earbuds, I found this headphone a rather enjoyable transition.    I own the PIIQ2, Beats Solo HD, and this definitely fits into another category. The overall impression of the MDR-1R is it is very comfortable piece of hardware with a very warm sound signature, you can listen to this thing for hours and it won't hurt you unlike the XBA-30.
  • Pros: Strong Bass that doesn't muddle the clarity of music
  • Cons: steep price tag

  • 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. Most are either flat out studio headphones unsuitable for portable use or simply more that I am willing to pay for a pair of portable.
  • Pros: Great vocal performance, especially female vocal. Relaxed, smooth presentation with good speed. Open sounding
  • Cons: Isolation, Not sheep skin leather, Cable jack problem
