dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersIt was my good luck to get another Audio-Technica headphone for review this month, on loan from MyMac for a couple of weeks. To be honest, I like most headphones I do get, since I choose only those that interest me. That said though, this A1000z is one of the better bets in a more-or-less neutral 'monitor' headphone, and I commented after the review that the only headphones I've had that are comparable in the A1000z's price range are the MrSpeakers Mad Dog and the AKG K712 (albeit they don't sound quite as neutral). I think the cheaper AKG K553 Massdrop edition was nearly as good as these, and probably the best bargain. Audio-Technica ATH-A1000Z Art Monitor Headphones - Review - MyMac.com
dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersListening to the $350 Audio-Technica ESW990h wood-earcup headphone has been my most pleasurable hi-fi experience in a long time. The $1000 Focal Elear could have been even better if it weren't so recessed. Even though the ESW990h doesn't have quite the Elear's detail (when the Elear is EQ'd), the overall accuracy of musical tone puts the ESW990h in that rare category of mine - headphones that sound right, right out of the box.

dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersAnother unusual product - a very light plastic headphone - so light that it needs no headband padding, and yet this headphone has a near-reference signature for monitoring etc. The reference signature doesn't always mean perfect tone quality however, but still it's fantastic I think for under $30 USD.

YuriHisoka posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersHey guys, i've been researching headphones for a quite good time. Now i have to take a decision and i need your help. I've bought today the X-fi hd creative usb sound card and i have to chose one headphone too. I really enjoy "punch bass" and feel surrounded in musics and games. But i really care about the "clarity" of the sound with good sound stage and good mids/highs. (I like rap/hip hop/dubstep/rock) I know its controverse, but i already know that i want a closed back headphone. But i would appreciate if I could take a "cristal clear" headphone but not that kind of boriness of flat sound. I want emotion during musics without losing the quality. So, after searching a lot, i'm between 2: -Shure SRH 840 with the bass "boosted" on my X-fi HD. -Ath m50x with the mids "boosted" on my x-fi with the intention to turn it more "cristalyzed". I've read a lot about the DT770 and 880 too, but a lot of people had trouble with the sibilance, and i dont want it to be a concern, these hp's that I pretend to buy must last a good while. (i expect that things like that don't happen to srh 840) So.. i would enjoy if you comment here what should I do, since i've almost bought the m50x but the "muddy" sound reported on these made me a little appreensive. Sorry for the bad english, i'm not american.. haha thank you very much for your attention. Yuri
