Where you getting that number from? Damn you're right - why are they so much cheaper in Japan?
It's from a Japanese manufacturer so It's always cheaper there. Embarrassment

Quote from dj-3lusion View Post :
so you saying we should wait for a slicker deal???. would suck if its 165 now and someone out there pops up to sell it for $145 free shipping.
It could go lower. I remember when AD700's were @ $60-70 a few years back when the dollar to yen was even more extreme than it is today. Buydig was the place to buy when it comes to AT headphones. They sold the w3000anv lower than the lowest price in Japan IIRC.

yeah... ill hold out.. i really want some headphones I can never have enough in my studio... I would jump on this but again its not like oh damn im recording eminem in the studio tomorrow... but some day it will come in handy to have. guess i will have to setup deal alerts for audio technicas. I wish i had my old buddies from japan they would make the free shipping happen. idk how they did it but i guess because they have family willing to ship stuff from japan to here w/o question.

Dammit I didn't need headphones.. I already have a pair of Q-Jays and HD-595. But nooo, everyone had to say they are so good.

I bought the q-jays for work, but eh inner ear is a bit rougher than I thought though the sound is killer. HD-595 are good for under $100 but open design made them really unpractical at work.

Now if I only had a job to wear these at...

But in my post I said I want both! I like the sound clarity but I can't go without the bass, it just feels like something is missing, same with the bass heavy ones, I like to hear the highs too. I don't want to just bass out. I think I should have jumped on the ultrasone pro 900 from about a week ago but I have no idea about headphones and was too busy at the time to bother looking x.x
I bought the ultrasone pro 900 last week and its a pretty great set of cans. The bass is prominent but very clean and response across the band is exceptional. I find that music i listen to, orchestra classical, vocal jazz and rock, the phones add a lush sound to with better high high and low response compared to my AT M50s. At 199 last week, when listed at 550, they were an incredible steal. After the burn in, they might sound even better.

I was going to get this deal but I talked myself out of it, considering I already have the ultrasone but would like to buy an open set to see if I can improve over my SR60 and AKG 240.

Yep, that's a good deal. Is Pro900 miss mid-range voices?

ES7 is where its at man. but if you commute that much maybe its not comfortable enough. i just dont know if you want to be seen with full sized headphones in public though. you might think they are cool but in the end you risk looking like a clown
I have no problem looking clownish as long as I'm comfortable and my headphones can drown out the noise around me. I had a pair of Altec Lansing AHP-712 Headphones [amazon.com] a few years back for my frequent international travel. They're the most expensive set of headphones I've ever purchased. They were huge, but I could pass out on a flight to Japan and wake up with no ear discomfort. But they kept breaking so I had to finally toss them when I couldn't Super Glue the faulty joints anymore. I say all that to say that I want that level of comfort in my next set of higher-end headphones.

The ES7 hurts my ears after extended use.
My purpose for this one is to use it in the cabin until I get to the other side of the country. Plus, it says ART on the cups. look around Anyone will look better with it than the gangta wearing white beats with red cable. vomit
Heck yeah. I used to fly from Rochester, NY to DC to SF to Asia for work and my AHP-712s never hurt my ears. My headphones have to be comfy.

Haha, yeah, after I saw your question about Bose I thought "omg, he IS trolling me! I can't respond again!"

I'm glad you enjoyed the link. The forums at head fi have a ton of good info, even if some people get a little too caught up in being a "critic". I just bought some $40 vsonic buds to replace the $100 noise canceling Bose buds my wife had, BC listening to them after enjoying my higher end 598s for so long was totally unbearable. The v02 buds won't be comparable too my senns, but I'm sure they will totally outclass the Bose priced 150% higher.
I told you I wasn't trolling, Tex. Just a noob in the audio game looking for more info! Big Grin

i guess it depends on what kind of music you're listening to but if youre into head rattling bassy music (dubstep, DnB, rap/hiphop etc...), beyerdynamic dt770 pro 80ohm with Fiio E17 is the solution. looks real low key looking, really comfy for long term wearing and is like a subwoofer attached to your head drool i know this combo is real pricey if you look at MSRP but theres plenty of used deals (scored my dt770 for 125!) but it's worth saving up for it just cuz they are just too good
I'm intrigued by the dt770s. Is there a big difference btw the 32, 80, and 250 Ohm versions? Also, the M50s have been mentioned a lot in this thread and are around $110, which would keep my in my price range. Any advice from you beat nuts on which you prefer for comfort and long wear? Need to travel in these a lot. TYIA.

I already own M50's and am buying these for no reason. Hopefully headphones have decent resale value.

Placebo for the win!
unless they have the same drivers,

they will not sound the same (and btw same drivers in two different headphones might not always have the sound sound depending on how they're angled.).
better audio isn't a placebo, it's just thought of that by those who haven't owned any high end phones.

The frequency response: http://www.headphone.com/headphon...ro-900.php is quite good even in the mid-range, it's just not as strong as the highs and lows. As for what I actually hear, the phones do produce a full spectrum of frequencies with no missing tones. In the mid-range of the music I listen to, the timbre of Ella Fitzgerald's voice is rich, crystal clear and alive on some of the old recordings. However, two people on Amazon have complained that the highs are too "sibilant," i.e. a sibilant speech sound, such as English (s), (sh), (z), or (zh). I have not noticed this at all, although the high response is so good (all the way to limits of the frequency curve, i.e. > 22 KHz) and dynamic, it may sound harsh to someone. Maybe they mistaken this as sibilance. (Who knows?) They are a remarkable set of phones.

O can't speak to the difference in sound quality, but the impedance (measured in ohms) has a big impact on the volume and performance if not powered/amped properly. At 30 ohms or less, an amp shouldn't be required. At 40-70 ohms you will probably want an amp, especially for portable playback devices. Anything at 80+ ohms will most certainly require an amp.
