it's a lot of work for someone to manually enter everybody's information. use the honor system and periodically back it up in case someone tries to get cute and delete entries.

They blow the UE350's out the water (I have both UE350 and FA's in front of me).
They rival the EX510's in terms of sound (I prefer the FA's sound personally)
They however don't match the MG7's sub-bass, however these have a great sense of space and excellent mid-bass (quality).

DEFINITELY check these out.

thanks man, those look great, i was also recommend on head fi a new phillips type IEm called phillips fidelio s1 but those ones you listed look great, although the whole cable noise thing annoys me. I don't understand why they even put mics on them.. do poeple really use them?

Koss Tony Bennett Signature Edition Stereophone (TBSE1)

I really do love how mid-forward these headphones are, older music and rock sound phenomenal on these, was also listening to Adele the other day and my mind was blown (live acoustic versions).

Anyways, as good as these cans are, I feel they can be better. Anyone got any recommendations for burn-in? One guy that reviewed them said he did pink noise for 2 weeks, but I don't really want to have them burning in that long, so what is the best approach?

Any input would be appreciated because I never have done a burn-in myself, frequencies to use and volume level suggestions are appreciated smile.gif

Burn in is a subject of great debate. On one hand, there is no consistent scientific proof and basis that "burn-in" exists. On the other hand, my experiences with headphones (notably the AKG K701) tell my ears otherwise. It could be ears adapting over time to specific sounds from the headphones, but for me, burn-in is very real.

Maybe outside of the audiophile community; but engineering materials would state that the structures of the diaphragms themselves, if the speakers were to be hard pressed/firmly molded during manufacturing, would eventually shift to a state in which would allow them more freedom of harmonic motion. "Burn-in" exists but does not mold to a specific type of music you listen to, unless, somehow, you isolate the speakers from ever producing certain frequencies...and even then that's debatable. Hence why they also degrade over time. tongue.gif

People burn in new cans in different ways. Some people play pink noise. Others just have their music going.

It's not a rifle or an engine so I would have a hard time believing that a burn in or break in period is REQUIRED. You would really need to give me some solid proof that something along the line of damage to the voice coil in the form of scraping or something of the like could happen if it wasn't warn in slowly at first to make me believe that it matters at all.

I say matters as in I do not feel there are any important break in procedures and that over time regardless of how you broke it in it will eventually be broken in. I do feel that speakers break in but I do not think it is like with an engine where if it isn't done in a certain way it matters and even if it did matter speaker companies probably would tell you whatever is safer than whatever the real break in requirements are just like they do with cars.

I have seen break in claims for speaker manufactures but some have said the opposite of others... I think for the most part they just want you to keep them even if you don't like them at first lol...

just my 2 cents...

If burn in exists and we can really tell a difference I think pink noise would just be the most hearable difference simply because you wouldn't be listening to the pink noise itself and would leave it running for a long period of time. So the break in would happen at a faster rate and you would have listened to the speakers/headphones before being broken in and then not again till they had been broken in which would be a sudden difference if a difference existed. Where as letting them break in over time on there own would be hard to actually hear since it would happen gradually and in that case it would be hard to believe someone could actually hear it happen.

I will never feel strongly about break in/burn in unless someone ever proves that it exists and that if not done gradually that it could damage the speaker permanently and after being explained to by an exec at MV Agusta why car companies lie about break ins I wouldn't believe any company that has a product that could harm you about there printed break in process. (yes headphones can harm you... badly)
