Seriously wonderful sounding headphones. Genuinely excellent sounding headphones. The inventory pads are usable, but i endorse transforming them. Now applying shure 1540 pads and these are just incredible.

Fantastic audio for the money. Superb sound for the dollars. The inventory pads require to be changed on day one, for the reason that they are incredibly not comfortable. The shure 1540 pads work excellent. Both of the cables that the headphones occur with are not quite very good. The locking connector on the headphone aspect is inclined to reduce out audio from time to time when you transfer close to. The develop high quality is great, and they are comfortable for prolonged listening sessions (apart from the pads). All all around a extremely balanced seem, almost nothing sticks out. Good way to get into planar magnetic headphones.

Really superior high quality and sound good, nevertheless a little bit of plastic has occur off of one side and is earning them virtually unusable. What is the policy on obtaining these preset/replaced?. Would unquestionably have been five stars experienced they not damaged.Here are the specifications for the Fostex T50RP MK3N Headphone:

Excellent headphones for the price, but not suited for wise telephones.

Fascinating and revealing. . No problems with the headband, but as other individuals have explained, the earpads are extremely uncomfortable and sticky hot immediately after only ten minutes. Took information and purchased the shure alcantera 1540 pads. Final types in inventory from united states. Ouch, charge me £50 with transport. Now the seem with inventory pads – adore the detail in the mids to highs. Tweaked my eq for a minimal additional bass. Their not as vast distribute on audio stage as my denon 7000 exactly where you can choose out each and every instrument on an imaginary stage, but the crossover is superb. Revealing symbols and kick drums from remaining to proper and even mid centre.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Interesting and revealing.
  • Clamping force too great, give me a bit of a headache after
  • Fantastic sound for the money

These are great, but can be a lot greater with the suitable pads. These are an incredible, planar-magnetic headphone which will cross genres without the need of blinking. If you can stand the a little irritating clamp force they will sing for their supper no issue what you’re listening tothe seem is wonderful. Near, but pretty easy and specific. I can listen to folks shuffling in their seats and turning webpages on their audio sheets on starcraft: wings of liberty’s opening track when the tunes enters the 2nd motion. They are also a very forgiving headphone. I listened to castlevania: lords of shadow at 128kbps and it was not as well negative, so these tend to gloss above bad recordings to make them sound superior imo. Magnificent for informal listeners, a trouble for sound designers. Not terribly revealing of bad recordings.

Use these on my mac with an aune dac and a minimal dot i+ amp. I did transform the flimsy pad for some shure ones though.

Clamping force too great, give me a bit of a headache after. Clamping force too great, give me a bit of a headache after wearing for a while. Sound quality is good and definitely unique but little soundstage and didn’t find myself enjoying music with them. Ultimately i sent them back, i’d recommend the beyerdynamic dt990s over these for home use.

Truly amazing for the price – you’ll need a good headphone amp tho. Suitable mainly for home use. Buy better “pads” as standard are inadequate. These cans left my sennheiser momentums for dead – and they are great headphones.

Really good quality and sound great, however a bit of plastic has come off of one side and is making them nearly unusable. What is the policy on getting these fixed/replaced?. Would definitely have been five stars had they not broken.

Really happy with the sound and plenty of punch when needed.
Can’t really explain why in detail. I’ll leave that to those more eloquent than myself. I just know that even just listening to a movie, these headphones can make me smile with audible pleasure.

Last you a lifetime headphones. These are great very strong tough etc sound works with iphone and android to acceptable levels but put them on a pc with a sound card and let spotify rip at high quality just bliss also have the very good sennheiser hd600 to compare the mk3 which has the better base i still love both. I have to change the ear pad for the, 1540 by shure replacement ear pads which i also give 5 stars.

Great entry into planar magnetics. I bought my pair elsewhere, but. . Agree with all the other reviews on here, but if you want a cheaper alternative earpad try the shure 840 pads – £15ish does the job for a third of the cost 😎definitely need a headphone amp to get the best from these as 50ohm impedance is too much for most phones and daps.

Absolutely amazing headphone. . Absolutely amazing headphone. Even more amazing for the ridiculously low price tag, easily the best pair out there for under £500. Neutral sound, but very, very engaging. They deliver exactly what each genre of music aims to deliver, i. They are amazing with all genres. These headphones are the best. Instead of trying to listen critically to the sounds the headphones are producing, hoping the headphones will produce magic through their technology, these headphones make me want to listen to the music, not the headphone. You forget the headphones are on your head, and music simply appears in your brain, clean, incredibly detailed, and very fast. This is what i hope the far more expensive and highly esteemed hd650s are like when i get them in the future. Downsides: slightly sibilant out of the box, haven’t had time to burn them in yet. You will also intuitively know once you hear them that these require a decent, very powerful, amp. These headphones really, really make you want to actually listen to the song.

Amazing sound clarity for the price. . I just bought these and i am elated with them. Have to be the best bang for buck phones, no wonder so many people are diying them. Yes, they come in a crappy box with crappy wires, yes they’re probably not the best lookers out there, but the sound quality is surprisingly good. They’re not particularly difficult to drive, but you will need a headphone amp to enjoy them driven well. Don’t expect them to work with a phone as they’re 50 ohms, so you probably won’t hear a lot. Not the most comfortable pair i’ve had, but they don’t get your ears numb at least. If you are going to change the pads, be sure to get very soft foam pads, as increasing the distance between the ear and the driver can change the signature significantly in planar drivers.

Surprisingly good although a headphone amp and a change of ear pads is recommended. Can be modded and there is a strong community online covering this area albeit for the mk2.

Quality headphones, amazing sound quality. They do work a lot better if you are powering them with an amp but are listenable through a pc. I would recommend getting some new ear pads for these but get some like the brainwaves hm5s that are memory foam as these are comfortable, fit the cup and most of all don’t change the sound signature muchvery helpful review here:[.

Sony MDR-XB500 Extra Bass Headphones – : An honest review.

It claims extra bass and thats what you get. I prefered this xb500 more than the sucessor xb600. As decribed, these headphones present a bass weighty response.
