Tuning that shines with every device.
Overall, I’d say the III is quite an accomplishment at the price. It gives one a taste of the detail, openness, and drive of the higher priced spread (and bears more than a passing resemblance to its older sib), at a reasonable (in these days of $4K headphones) price.
The Art of full size Monitors. PROS: very resolving reference quality sound, lightweight, comfortable 3D…
The Xiaomi Mi Headphones offer very solid value for money with punchy, energetic sound, convertible on/over-ear design, and superb build quality.
A brief roundup of the Bluetooth headphones I’ve tried to date, with a couple of quick recommendations for the holiday season.
Not having tried any of HiFiMan’s previous full-size cans, the HE-560 impressed me more than I had anticipated, going so far as to replace the Sennheiser HD600 as my full-size reference headphone thanks to the outstanding bass performance and clarity.
The Denon DN-HP1000 retains the slightly sub-par ergonomics of the lower-end DN-HP700 model and manages to lose a chunk of the audio quality of the cheaper headphone.
The ADL H118 is a semi-portable headphone with a closed, circumaural form factor and warm, somewhat treble-shy sound with plentiful bass.
