Conclusion: The ZX700 seem like they’re meant to appeal to audiophiles and studio pros, but with such a short cord, sterile sound and no ¼-inch adapter included, we doubt they will end up being the top choice of either.
Summary: Hmmm , first review on Head-Fi :D
Alright little information about me , I am 16 from India ..... recently got into HiFi , although I once had the ESP-950 which my Dad bought when he visited the states a long , long time ago anyways my journey began in 2012 fall when I was in the process of finding...
Pros: Style , Comfort , Bass extension is pretty realistic and smooth , Nice midrange , can be modded and scales up relatively well for what it does
Cons: Grain , clarity , frequency balance , build quality
Summary: I needed new same constructed drivers for the SA3000, which originals were replaced in a defective SA5000.
Drivers transplanted into SA3000 with added 10 Ohm ground resistor to up the impedance to 34 Ohms.
Pros: Hi-Fi 50mm drivers that fits in SA3000!
Cons: AM Radio Sound HP CUP Design, Worst hp uncalibrate SQ ever, my cheap archos earbuds sounds way better!
Summary: REVIEW: Sony MDR-ZX700, Philips Cityscape Uptown, Sennheiser PX 200 II
Recently I've been in search of a pair of portable headphones. My main use scenario is music on-the-go. I do cycle a lot so I really needed something that would be compact, light and sturdy (in case of accidents) and yet not...
Pros: great sound quality (balanced, neutral, detailed; deep, tight & well controlled bass; good comfort; feels solid; nice unobtrusive design
Summary: Decent pair o' cans. I got em 30$ off, so totally worth it. I wouldn't use these for major listening, as they aren't too detailed, but they still have nice sound. They also don't have a case. Not the best portability
Pros: Decent sound, lightweight, comfortable
Cons: No accessories, can get scratched (but not too often)
Summary: I had it for a week then sent back, i didn't like the slow and unrealistic presentation.
Rolled off treble made it sound like a tetris with electronic music. It was an acceptable performance
for most of genres, exceptionally good with instrumental music. Very comfortable and it has never been harsh.
Pros: Nice mids, very easy to drive, very good build
Summary: I used the MDR-ZX701iP which is the same but with iphone controls.
Build Quality & Design: 4/5
I like to start off with this category because it is one of the first things you notice about the product. You see how it is presented and what it looks like.
Summary: These just arrived a couple of hours ago so I can't say anything conclusive yet but so far I'm loving them! I've been wearing them for an hour now (with glasses on) and had no problems with fit or comfort, the cans are starting to heat up a tad though, that could be due to me being in quite a hot...
Pros: Very 'true' to the recording, surprising separation and soundstage for a closed can, comfortable, easily driven, portable.
Cons: Require some amping for the bass presence some may like,do heat up after a while.
Summary: I bought this headphone at the sony store in Paris for the msrp of 100euros and been using it for the past 3 days with my iPod shuffle 4g(ALAC), aony nwz-a829(mp3 320kb/s) and FiiO E11. Haven't done any burn-in yet.
The package included the headphones and only an extension cable(1.8m).
