I have these and they are quality.

However some people like their music 'bassy' and these phones don't have much in the way of bass.
#8
Ok mine r ordered so its too late now lol thanx for the info peeps :)
#9
I think these are "open backed" headphones, this means they don't keep the sound inside the headphones.

They are a good sounding headphone as ~What Hi-Fi will says, however there will be considerable sound leakage (other people around will be able to hear) but if you are ok with this then a great set of headphones.

Ta, just ordered :thumbsup:

Yeah they'll fit his laptop because it says they have a 3.5mm jack, and most - if not all laptop have a 3.5mm port :)
#19
You will have to check the plug hole size - my technics needs a round big one, not a round small one. By the look of it, this headphone should have a round big one, but check.
#20
are the comfortable?

i need a pair to use on my PC when watching movies whenmy son watches his Ben 10 on my TV :)

Yeah they are comfy, good padding and dont hurt after a few hours of use.. agree with the comments about bass though, these have very little..

It's got both. That's what "Nickel plated 3.5mm to 6.5mm (1/4 inch jack) adapter plug supplied" means.

I have these and like them a lot but my family do notice the sound leakage when it is a loud part in a film.

They also have no independent volume control.

They are very comfortable, and I haven't noticed a distinct lack of bass, they just provide a good quality sound, at a good price.

Huge lead length too.

Truth is that if these are anything like other Goldring cans I've tried the bass is very good.

People have a weird view of what bass is. It's all about extension, not boominess. These should have plenty of the former but little of the latter, which is the correct response to have.

Some of these phones with "good bass" in reality sound nasally and distorted.

Anybody else having trouble ordering these now? out of stock maybe :(

I don't want to start a flame/fanboy war but how do these stack up vs my Sennheiser HD201's? :)

On a sidenote, I'm guessing they aren't too great for for gaming? Thanks in advance.
#30
Well the main difference is that the Sennheisers are closed back.

Not sure what a "gaming headphone" is - just like a "gaming mouse" or a "gaming keyboard" it seems to be just a marketing wheeze intended to get you to buy two of everything.
#31
Thanks! Spent my 15 quid voucher that Play gave me for using there credit card. A deal I also found here!

Well for a start they come with built in microphones (sorry I should have said headset at first, not headphones)...and often from what I read perform much better in a gaming environment than in a musical environment, not sure how exactly how mind you.

I guess I'll probably leave it then if they're more of a sidegrade than an upgrade...:thumbsup:
#33
I've had the Sennheiser HD201's for about a year now. Looking for an upgrade now, as I don't think the HD201's give out enough volume. I find myself having to increase the volume in FFDShow when watching some movies/tv shows on my computer.
#34
Low volume? Get a FIIO E5 headphone amp. 11 quid from ebay. No need to replace cans and get a marginal increase in sound level.

I've been caught out too many times by cans that the masses say are great, and sound toss (Sen 300MX for example). If your phones sound right, don't replace them. The best cans have low sensitivity in the main.
