My Bose Tri-Ports BLOW these right out of the water! To bad my Tri-ports are cracked all over form 5 years of abuse.
Damn, I'm sorry I tried these!
You're a bass fan arent you?
Those are extremely accurate
headphones. Meaning they reproduce the sounds very well according to the original intent. The biggest issue is that the ONLY way to get good accuracy through the whole range (i.e. bass) is with a headphone amp. Any of those high end headphones are pretty weak on the low end without an amp because the MP3 players, computers, and any standard headphone-source dont have enough power to push the big tight drivers in them.
Get a headphone amp and it is like night and day. Bose makes drivers that overpower the bass so the consumer can hear it without needing an amp, but it isnt very accurate.
The biggest disadvantage? the amp will set you back another $100-200+. That is why those are considered 'audiophile grade' headphones... because you have to empty your pockets to get the orgasm in your ears.
