This headphone is the result of searching for a as neutral as possible headphone to be used with any audio player and also my PC, For unknown reason the PC's sound card shows a quite high b bass sound with more than 10 db over the flat response. I found that at a price of 130Eu from a local store in Greece with nearly no shipping charges There was also a mini problem that i wanted an over- ear model instead of circumaural as ordered. Unfortunately there was nothing very close to what requested and "canceled the canceling" of shipment .
It has been received in just 3 days Below is a pictorial overview with a comparison with AKG77 my not so standard testing headphone except that this is the most proper model to check. Both are connected with a A.B switch to splitter just in case ohmage is different.
Here is the arm above the headphone. it consists from a relatively thick metallic blade:
The cushion over the arm is detachable as most pars of the headphone.There are some 'bolts and nuts; that can help removing it . this is the best for a headphone to replace every defunct part:
And here is the plug for of the headphone . as you can see the log has a srew type stabilizer so that the adaptor cant be lost or loosened ! very smart idea indeed!
The results : the sound between the K77and this model is very different:
The K77 is 'terribly bassy' comparing to Beyer -even with other headphones is not so much- with with some gain reaching the the lower middle band. Quite high audio level comparing to the Beyer assuming a difference between 6 and 9 db. The standard trebles are nearly the same with the very slight over the AKG. . I made a rough drawing of my perceptional levels to describe it in sy format:
Some minimal photo googling shown the headphone signature with some increase on the higher part of the treble band ie the 5-11kHz
Personal opinion after using it quite long: This is now my model headphone that offers great sound, though not so high volume as other models of its class,
