Great Headphones

Griff the Band Geek, Adorama
16 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I have had this Product for half a year, and the only thing that bothers me is that when I have my glasses on after a while my ears hurt, but lately I have not been having that problem(probably because the cups got broken in). I would not recommend bringing them to school, not because of the fact they cost so much but the fact that they are inconvenient to carry around when not being used.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Uncomfortable

  • Summary: I was looking for a cheap and cheerful, fun sounding closed can for listening at my computer at work and some limited portable use.  I typically listen to EDM in this setting and had been using the Shure 840s. Although a great headphone the 840’s did not have the low end horse power or staging to show EDM at its best and they are not at all portable.
  • Pros: Very easy to drive with a fun EQ
  • Cons: Headband hurts and they look like a Beats rip off

  • Summary: I wan't really looking to buy the Yamaha Pro 500s. But I saw them on an Amazon lightning deal for $150 and decided what the heck. Overall, this headphone competes well in the $200 to $250 price range, and would be good for those looking for bassy signature. Here are some random thoughts about them. Comfort, Fit, & Isolation I can understand the complaints by some people that these headphones are too heavy and uncomfortable.
  • Pros: Plenty of bass for those who like that, good clarity, spacious sound
  • Cons: Too pricey at full MSRP, warm/dark sound signature may not be for some, fit/comfort

  • Summary: Note: Ok, so I took time to write a couple of things regarding these guys. This is mostly "preliminary" as I'm one of those that feel sound signature grows once you give a lot of listening time to gear. Anyway, mini review.   Introduction: THIS HOBBY SUCKS!!! You read this right! lol I thought I was done buying headphones for a while as I think I found what I was after with MrSpeakers Mad Dogs and Ultrasone Signature Pros but, as always, new ones come along that you just...
  • Pros: Impactful sound, bass extension and impact is present, feels sturdy, good accessories.
  • Cons: Bass overpowers lower mids (quantity is too much), puts pressure on top of the head, they are HUGE!

Big Sound - but too Big Fit

JV the Musician, Yamaha

  • Summary: I live the sound and look. But the fit is actually too large for my head. My ears are either too high or the band does not go small enough. I did have some issues with the iPhone cable fell apart when I caught it on something. Yamaha replaced it right away. That said - they sound incredible and look amazing and are comfy for a medium to large head person.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Gorgeous, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Too Large Fit

  • Excerpt: Доброго времени суток!хочу поделиться своими впечатлениями об использовании наушников,сразу оговорюсь что у меня в личном пользовании есть почти все топовые уши почти всех производителей в этой ценовой категории,по качеству сборки и внешнего вида вопросов вообще нет,по размерам-это минус но не существенный,они слишком свободно сидят на моей в принципе не маленькой голове!
  • Pros: Звук,качество исполнения изделия,комплектность
  • Cons: Размер(для очень большой головы)

  • Excerpt: Вообщем цену свою они не оправдали и если бы покупал разочаровался что столько денег отдал зря,ну наушники на любителя может кому понравится,например классику слушать одно удовольствие,если есть возможность обязательно послушайте их в магазине!вдруг не понравятся!
  • Pros: Дизайн на высоте,качество на 4ку с плюсом,звук чистый и детализированный.
  • Cons: Очень большие в плане того что одеваешь на голову и они как будто велики,даже в обзоре так писали,теперь и сам убедился в этом( Мало ну очень мало низких частот,где басы то!?...Цена могла бы быть меньше!
