I'll evaluate this guy's reviews. Hopefully he's different, but the problem with most bassheads is that they have absolutely no sense of what good midrange or treble is - and I consider both mids and treble to be far more important than bass. If a headphone is bass-light, or bass-heavy, that's what I hear it as and I'm absolutely fine with it. If a headphone is uneven in the mids or treble - it sounds muffled or ear rape or shouty, etc, and if I'm to listen to it at all, that requires throwing tons of EQ into the mix.

>if I'm to listen to it at all, that requires throwing tons of EQ into the mix.
the problem is that you can't have all three (slam, vocal clarity, treble detail) because you have to sacrifice one of them. not with the kannon though. although part of that is dependent on how good the OEM driver it uses though

What do you think, do you know anything about really old headphones?
I bought these old japanese ones for 6$, they are huge as hell, at 8 ohms your ears can't help but feel raped and they squeeze your head really hard, gave me a huge nasty blister on the inside of my mouth.
They sound pretty nice when you switch the output to 4 or 5.1 channels though, sound is very "dark" but seems to originate from different places in the room very well and it really exposes dynamic range compression in recordings, even at quiet volumes it often starts almost hurting your ears at times.

I am VERY doubtful it can do vocal clarity & treble detail to the point where I would be satisfied. I have never tried a single closed headphone (minus the Aeon, which is really unique in this) which can match the clarity and detail of open headphones.

I don't know, I can't relate if that's your only criteria for a headphone. I listen to literally every genre (except rap, because hiphop) and enjoy every type of headphone signature from extreme basshead to extreme clarity.

that's a strong opinion I don't think you should hold because I don't believe you have enough reference points to genuinely be able to say that. look at the takstar decay measurements that was posted here the other day for example

https://diyaudioheaven.wordpress.com/headphones/measurements/takstar-pro-82/

I mean you're not wrong for thinking that. I just don't think you are right casting an umbrella statement like that. What I think you mean is that it costs more to get a closed back headphone that meets your baseline requirements than it does an open back.

If there is hiss you may need a 3.5mm ground loop isolator. You can get them for 5-10 dollars off ebay, amazon, wherever the fuck you want. Connecting my Switch to my amp for example caused hiss. Went away when I put that in the middle.

That may be true. But closed headphones in the aeon price range are few and far between.

Measurements are good info but ultimately if it sounds bad to me but measures well, it still serves me no good. I may get the takstars as beater headphones in the future.

I wouldn't bother with the L300LE if I were you. It's only gonna be "close" to the L700, but they're not exactly the same. There was an audition in Japan and the feedback in japanese is that they're kind of close to the L700, but definitely not quite as good.
Considering the SR-507 already was pretty much the same as the base L300, you'd probably be better investing that money into other, different kind of headphones instead of getting a new shiny gold logo on the sides of your earspeakers.

Look at japanese forums and social stuff. STAX had a booth at some audio convention where you could listen to the L300Ltd. The guy on Head-Case is only one of many japanese people who were there.
Feedback is that it sounds good, and would be closer to the L700, but it's not AS GOOD as it is. It's a fine entry to the electrostatics if you wanted to put this kind of price, but people already find the difference between the L300 and L700 not always worth the cost, which I think so too.
In the case of the anon with the SR-507, I really feel like this would be a waste of money.
In case you ever had a doubt, the amp has nothing special, just a black version of the 353.

because it is potentially as good (or better) than the L700. I don't trust random rumors.

okay. I don't trust auditions either because even just having the headphones placed differently on your head slightly can dramatically change the sound and leave different impressions.
>It's not better though, that seems like the general response at least.
apparently a good amount of people prefer the L300 over the L700 anyways, so "better" is a bit of a misleading term. and I lead with "as good", I don't actually think it will be better. that would seem like a bit of a stretch.

also one problem I noticed with open backs is that you are just pointing a speaker in the exact direction you don't want it to go. you are basically pointing a little tiny speaker directly at the door if it's in the path. in that case it's probably better to just use near field speakers, I think in most cases an undampened open headphone is quieter though.

Doesn't mean that it isn't a decent deal if you prefer the sound signature of the L700, as it will sound closer to it than the brighter electrostatics. People who already own a decent Lambda will be disappointed though.

If you're always sitting in the sweetspot to watch TV then I'd recommend 8" studio monitor + sub, unless it's from 15ft+ back. Maybe the LSR 308 Mackie XR 824? Depends on the size of the room too.

For casual lifestyle party mode speakers in a large living room environment, the floorstand would probably win out.. but if it's in a closed medium sized room or smaller I think the 8 inch studio monitors + sub would be loud enough, while being way more accurate for that price.

The MSR7 has so much more clarity it's a no-fucking-brainer. The only reason not to buy it and picking a cheaper AT closed is if you don't have the money, period.
Bass on M50X is muddy, treble too uneven to sound with decent clarity. It also has the typical closed headphone soundstage, the MSR7, while not sounding open, sounds wider enough to be noticeable and appreciated.

What does that have to do with anything? First of all, it's a tiny boutique company that has a tiny customer base and had no previous ties or experience in managing a large supply chain or anything. Of course they are going to have much bigger operating costs compared to companies like Fostex, to keep it fair comparing wood-to-wood since somehow you think it's a real selling point. Of course they will have to charge more even on their simplest, basest product to make a living. I don't expect them to make a product like the TH-X00.

But none of that answers the -why- should such companies even exist to begin with. Do they provide something of actual objective value over established companies that can mass produce quality headphones? Not really. If anything Fostex at least made a very, very unique dynamic driver that has very low bass distortion compared to the rest of the market.

Companies like ZMF are more like fashion companies than the place where audio innovation will come from.

>Because I obviously take selfies everytime I go and check up headphones at shops and audio shows.
hah okay buddy. as far as I'm concerned you're full of shit. you really didn't think you'd be called out for your claims when you have no pictures?
>I'm just giving you my impressions about the headphones when I tried a pair since you told me I should.
maybe if I told you try a pair you'd come back and be like "oh I tried an auteur!". nah. you bring it up for the first time in an argument after I use the auteur as an example. you read the measurements and then tell me how you think they sound without having actually heard them.

and then you cry and whine and try to make me look like I'm the bad guy. fuck off and kys.

sure they do. saying they aren't would be disingenuous. a lot of people found their endgame with zmf

no, seriously. neutral with an uppermid bump. the driver is biodyna too. won't measure as well as a STAX but you could argue the decay is artificially fast

by the way, friendly reminder >>64742506
this is why I know your statement is shit. "bass is overwhelming". what a joke.

You're arguing with a guy that worships his HD600, of course he'll think any more bass than it has is "overwhelming"

I wish Audio Technica had a regular headband instead of the wings. It is the only thing holding me back from buying them.

so which is it? are we going by the measurements, or are we using anecdotes from members who actually commented on how the atticus sounded and has never commented on the auteur

I'm not even the same person as him. I just find it funny how offended you become when some people don't seem to share your fondness of the ZMF headphones.

>I just find it funny how offended you become when some people don't seem to share your fondness of the ZMF headphones.
no, because this has been going on for awhile where people say they've heard a zmf but straight up lie. then proceed to tell me how my own headphones sound, or critiquing the teak vs the atticus when they've heard neither and I've owned both. and then I get called deaf when I disagree despite the measurements not on their side and I can verify it by having the headphones in my hand. you can say how you find it funny but really it's not. you should be laughing at how pathetic the other side is

i'm not that triggered though, I'm just enjoying my morning coffee and btfoing faggots

There's no such thing as "too much bass", only bass which has yet to be Eq'd to perfection.
