Summary: I've had these now for about 2 weeks now. I got these for a good price on ebay, they were open box, meaning the box was all beat up but the headphones were fine and in new condition, it's a win-win! :D I'm not as experienced as some members on here so if you'd like, take my review with a grain of salt. I also won't go into much depth as some reviewers do. My sources are Laptop>FiiO E10 and an ipod nano 5th generation.
Pros: Bass, midrange, highs are all good. Isolation both in and out is also decent. Pretty flat frequency response considering the -25 dip in the mid range.
Summary: Sound Magic HP 100 ($165 Used)
In the search for a can with the dt 880 sound and the isolation of a closed headphone I came across the sound magic hp 100!
Pros: Comfort, isolation, carrying case, detachable cord, clean sound, wonderful sound stage
Cons : lack of lower mids and upper bass [easily fixed by the w1000x Pads], also needs to be modified for bass improvement
Closed operating principle
Driver: Dynamic 53mm...
After enjoying my re-branded Brainwavz HM5s for around 6 months, I decided that it was time to move onto the next best thing. Not that I got tired of my HM5s, but I just knew that there was something better out there. After looking around on Amazon, Head-Fi and a couple other websites and stumbled onto the Soundmagic HP100s.
Pros: Wide Soundstage, Clarity, Great Bass Response that doesn't drown out highs and mids.
Cons: Pads can get sweaty on my ears after a couple hours, but the pleather is primarily to blame.
Summary: We are all different, and thus we all like different things. But there are likely only so many possible combinations in the world. So if you happen to be like me and like sleek, low profile, comfy, feature filled, well deigned, well made, amazing sounding shiny bits… Then maybe these will also be your new favorite cans?
Lets start with the physical, as eventually you will have to admit this is where all love starts. Attraction.
Summary: Read all the reviews here on headfi and you'll get a very accurate idea of what you'll hear.
I have been buying portable earphones since the early 90s, mostly Sony and their $100 models.In the past several years I've gathered Klipsch S4(great budget gear) then the V moda M80 for my first headphone and its great in a warm smooth way with plenty of great bass for my taste, and because it was on sale the Klipsch X5 which opened my eyes with the astonishing detail it...
Pros: Soundstage, detail, and balanced sound that isn't bass shy.
Summary: I'm just going to jump right into the review.
Driver: Dynamic 53mm
Frequency response: 10hz-30khz
Sensitivity: 95db at 1Khz/mw
Max input power: 100mw
Cable length: 1.2m (4m extended)
Price: Around $200
Build Quality: These headphones are built very well. The headband is a very strong, and slightly flexible. It is made up of a metal and plastic. it is about 65% metal, and 35% plastic.
Where I stood when I got these: I was using the AKG K141 MKII's. The source for these had been gradually improving for the approximately 18 months I'd had them, going from a EU capped iPod Nano 2nd gen, adding a cMoyBB v2.03, then as My academic year started, being that I was constantly with my laptop I went with the ODAC-cMoyBB-K141 until I got the iBasso DX50 (Very good synergy with K141).
Summary: This is a review of the SoundMagic HP100 over the ear full sized closed headphone. I received this as one of my first mid-fi headphones about 6 months ago, and I have to say though I had just received the DT 990 pros a day before these I was undoubtedly impressed with the sound quality and comfort of the headphone. This headphone is top notch and one of the best closed headphone options you can choose under 300$.
Pros: Great balance between lows, mids, and highs. Good comfort and build quality, detachable cable, sound quality is musical w/ good separation
Cons: A bit bright up top, though not as bad as DT 990pro, and a little lean in the lows
