Headphones Sennheiser HD238
0

As someone who still finds the sound signature of Sennheiser’s aging PX100 enjoyable in a relaxing sort of way after years of ownership, I had high hopes for Senn’s new ‘audiophile’-class portables. What I got was a more refined dose of the typical Sennheiser sound in what is admittedly a very handsome and convenient portable.

Headphones Sony MDR-XB500
2

The Sony MDR-XB500 is a solid, albeit not truly hi-fi, performer in the $50 range. The bass is strong and smooth and generally remains quite competent despite being slightly dull in nature.

Headphones Alessandro MS1
4

Though the Alessandro MS1 suffers from the same isolation, comfort, and portability issues as the competing Grados, they offer quite a lot of sonic bang for the buck.

Headphones Numark PHX Pro
0

Though most retailers want around $100 for the Numark PHX Pro, looking around ebay and amazon can yield an open-box or even brand new set for as little as 2/3 of that.

Headphones Ultrasone HFI-450
0

The Ultrasone HFI-450 / Yamaha RH10MS is a well-built, well-isolating, and very comfortable closed headphone that retails at a slightly lower price point than the Denon DN-HP700 and Audio-Technica ATH-M50, as it should.

Headphones Koss Pro DJ100
6

The Koss Pro DJ100 is a solid mid-range headphone that scores points for build and sound quality but loses out heavily on portability.

Headphones Denon DN-HP700
0

Unlike the lower-end DN-HP500, the Denon DN-HP700 faces some very fierce competition in its size and price class, namely from the venerable Audio-Technica ATH-M50.

Headphones AKG K430
8

AKG’s consumer-class K430 ‘mini’ headphone stays true to its name, impressing first and foremost with the convenience of its form factor.

Headphones Sony MDR-XB700
0

The combination of smooth but heavy bass and recessed but crisp midrange and treble of the Sony XB700 makes for an exiting and enjoyable sound signature.
