  • 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

  • Summary: Be on the lookout for a supplement to in-ear headphones. Listens exclusively through mobile and computer so have no requirements for high fidelity sound. First bought a pair of JBL J88i. Sounds like a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre. Tokmycket bass and drowns everything. Sent back and bought these ist. A completely different sound. The bass is much better and in tune with the rest of the music. They sit very comfortably on the head. Hardly feels like they are on.

  • Summary: Surprised not to those located higher in popularity. + Very nice, balanced sound. + Babe + Very good quality feel + Very comfortable to be comprehensive + Replaceable cable, supplied with two pieces, one with a mic. + Mic on said cable is really good. Relatively portable size for when the earpiece can be folded so they are flat. -Could be a snap base to -After a few hours it will be like in other comprehensive little kids warm. However, less than other kids.

  • Summary: Many plus with these kids, really happy so far. They changed me from Audio Technica ATH-ES7 that I am completely satisfied with sonically, but that is too uncomfortable after 30-60min. + The comfort, _grymt_ sitting comfortably on the head. A bit like Koss UR40, though slightly harder / denser and slightly heavier. + Insulates well against outside noise, good in eg offices. Also leak very little sound outward.

  • Summary: dont think you can get better headphones at this price range anywhere. They look stylish but more importantly the sound is incredibly crisp. Good bass too!
