Excerpt: My most frequent use is with my ipod, but I also use them when watching a blueray disc. I had a Sony MDR V600 headphones, but somehow they seemed to disappear. So back to B&H and the Sony phones and their specs and found the ZX700's. 50mm drivers instead of the 40mm on the V600 and 10khz higher frequency range on the upper end. And WOW! what a difference these phones make.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: Debated long and hard weather to get these or the Denon 1100 or Ultrasones. I had V-moda crossfades that I returned because of TOO MUCH BASS. They were comfy but the mids were SO recessed. These MDR-Z700 are very accurate, with almost foward mids and tight bass and nice highs. Just a very nice listen. VERY easy to drive at 24 ohms they should work with anything. These are not for bassheads. They have good slam when called for but there is no mid-bass hump.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound
Excerpt: Did a ton of research online and wanted a nice over the ear headphone that blocks out sound, sounds good and has a shorter cord for portablity. These headphones nailed it. They sound great and keep getting better the more I use them. Highly recommended!
Pros: Awesome, Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: These headphones cost less than the beats by dre solos & they r better. The equalizatioin is neutral so the aspects of music (treble, bass, etc.) dont 1 up each other. They also fit comfortably AROUND your ears making the drivers bigger. Outside noises dont get in and they dont vibrate on your ears when theyr turned all the way up. I still like the solos but these r waaaaaaaay better especially 4 the price.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: I recently picked up an X-Series Walkman and wanted to replace my old Sennheiser PX200 'phones that I used to listen to my A-Series Walkman with. A friend lent me his FiiO E11 for a day and I bought one immediately. The difference in the Sennheisers was spectacular but I decided there and then that I would need something a bit better.
Pros: very comfortable, incredible isolation, excellent sound quality and sensitivity
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). NO case/pouch, NO extra ear pads and NO 3.5mm-6.35mm adaptor. I felt they could've atleast included extra pads(stock pads are removable) for the asking price.
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 lacking in SQ department. Amps were a no-go since I want my setup small and simple, so I had to settle for something easy to drive. My budget - €100 / $125.
Pros: great sound quality (balanced, neutral, detailed; deep, tight & well controlled bass; good comfort; feels solid; nice unobtrusive design
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 room. I find myself preferring my HD598s for most tracks so far but it's a close call on many and for the money I don't think I could have found a better buy!
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.
