  1. Meanwhile at CES 2018..... USD $2400
  2. Is it just me, or does anyone else think that the Sennheiser 280 PRO New Model has less noise isolation then the original model?
  3. http://en-au.sennheiser.com/orpheus The cat is out of the bag. What do you guys think of the potential of the Senn HE-1060/HEV1060 combo beside breaking the bank? Thanks.
  4. I have recently been playing with the new sennheiser HD25 Aluminium 25th Anniversary edition Trimmed I have, since listening to them, pulled them apart to see what other changes they have made. The headband and cable are pretty much the same as the HD25-1 mk II but they have silver text on the headband and flatter hinged in aluminium to match the earcups. The cable clamp is now held in place with black t6 screws rather than silver philips screws which makes them a little trickier to pull apart as you can not longer use a standard screwdriver. Inside, the drivers seem to be identical and have the same impedance but have a different holographic seal on them. The earcups them selves have been milled from a solid block of aluminium rather than being stamped or cast and inside you can see the machine marks. They have recesses inside which are filled with foam damping where as the standard ones do not and they also have the same felt disc of sound absorbing material in there that the old ones do as we so they do have a bit more damping than the original model. Another improvement they have made is in the pads which feel more like real leather and seal on the ears better - the head pad is also slightly fatter which is nice and adds to the quality feel of them The cable seems to be the standard 2m steel cable they have used since they went to mk II so further detail may be possible to squeeze from them with a copper, silver or spc cable upgrade. Finally they come with a nice zip up case to protect them which is much better than the drawstring bag that the HD25-1 come with as standard
  5. Sorry, if this is a repost! I’ve been thinking about buying in-ear headphones, and I found theSennheiser IE8. But those were too expensive, so I did my research and found two in-ears that are less expensive-the CX980 and the MX980. The only problem right now is which one I should get. Some factors I will be considering include- Accessories- While I usually don’t use the accessories too much except maybe the carrying case and the sports clip, if the headphones do include accessories. Fortunately, that’s about all both the headphones come with. The only question I can ask is how good they work with the headphones. Build Quality- I want these in ears to last as long as possible. I take good care of my headphones, but I will use them a lot-from listening to my Sansa Clip+ to conferencing my friends on Skype. Every time I leave the house, I put on my headphones to listen to music and pass the time. I know Sennheiser has a great reputation for build, but some Sennheisers last longer than others. Noise Isolation- Not a huge deal, but nice if included. While it is nice to filter out outside noise such as car engine noise or people talking elsewhere, I do often talk to people with my headphones in my ear anyway, so it doesn’t matter much. Microphonics- I never found microphonics a huge problem when listening to music, but it certainly does matter. I will sometimes mess with my headphones, tangle them, wrap them, and untangle them when they get tangled because they’re a mess. Comfort- I will be wearing my headphones for hours of time, once I listened to 200+ songs without removing my headphones! I want my headphones to feel as if it were cushioning my ear or is just simply not there anymore. Sound Quality- I will be listening to classical music, techno and electronic (videogames/movies/YouTube), rap, hip-hop, and pop. I will also be using it to watch videos, play movies, conference, chat on the phone via Skype or smartphone, and when playing video games. Value- To me, $200 is still quite an investment despite being a ton less expensive than the $400 IE8s. I want every single cent to be worth its price. Also, I don’t want fakes either, but this isn’t a huge deal as I’ve only seen real MX980s and CX980s. Does anyone know which headphones are better suited for my requirements? What are the differences between these two headphones? I will be listening to music on a Sandisk Sansa Clip+. The headphones will be purchased through Amazon, I have webpages listed below- -Amazon USA: Sennheiser CX980 $149.99 + $4.99 S&H (aTreasureIsland, seller rep 100% 209 ratings) -Amazon USA: Sennheiser MX980 $199.99 + Free S&H (globalmobiles, seller rep 96% 4,401 ratings) Can someone recommend me the better in-ear headphones? Thanks!!!
