I'm not really sure why/how the DAC would change depending on headphone Impedance. Unless it gives more oomph to the headphone amp (but they call it HiFi DAC mode).

The 668B's are nowhere near it. I've tested both extensively and the difference is very noticeable. That and the soundstage. The X1 had the same traits here, but more grainy sounding. The 668B's have more low end than the K240's but nothing to write home about. I don't enjoy the 668B's at all. I bought them because they were raved about. But I don't see what the fuss is about. Apart from the harshness. There's nothing special about them. And they're damn uncomfortable too (maybe just my head).We say audio is very subjective here but the main reason people like the X2's are for the bass/soundstage and how "fun" they make things sound which is the complete opposite of what you're saying


Well you can go by what you've read, but I actually OWN both headsets and the X2's are definitely really good for bass by open headphone standards. But they're still open headphones. And 668B's already had respectable bass. Maybe it doesn't perform as well with the super low bass frequencies, but going from the 668B to X2 isn't super significant, unlike maybe how it would seem going from the K240's to the X2's. It's noticeable, absolutely. And it's quite nice. But you're talking as if the X2's are some basshead headphones and they're not even close. They can do some rumble and they're absolutely 'fun' by open headphone standards, but they aren't game-changing.

As far as soundstage, I dont know what else to say. There's no metric here to prove it either way, but it's very obvious to me that the X2's have a somewhat smaller image. It's still good, I still totally understand why others talk about how it provides a good soundstage, it's just not quite as big as the 668B's.

And no, the 668B's aren't 'special' if you're comparing to far more expensive headphones. The point is that they are GOOD, and that *for the price*, they are amazing value and punch well above their weight. Obviously if you have a much higher budget, I wouldn't recommend them, but for those looking for sub £50 headphones, I couldn't recommend them enough. Maybe the harsher highs will be a dealbreaker for some, but no headphone at sub £100(much less sub £50) is going to provide a faultless experience.

Nah, they really dont have 'much' more bass. They're still open-backed …Nah, they really dont have 'much' more bass. They're still open-backed and thus wont ever give thundering bass or anything. And the 668B's are also 50mm drivers so have a good size to better put out low frequencies(unlike the 30mm of the K240's you mention). X2's have a bit more bass, and the bass is nicer sounding, a bit more punchy, but actual 'quantity' of bass produced isn't a huge increase. And honestly, they have LESS soundstage than the 668B's. 668B's are REALLY good in this area and it's why they are so often recommended for gamers. X2 might provide a more immaculate soundstage, but not wider. You are right about the 'sibilance' of the 668B's if you're referring to the harsher treble, though. EQ'ing them down just a tad helps a lot, but I adjusted to them even without that. It's the main drawback of the headphones in terms of sound. It's good in pretty much everywhere other way. Not mind-blowing, but absolutely 'good', even by quality headphone standards.

And definitely worthy 5x the price, to me, obviously. I can't listen to the 668B's because of how sibilant they are, even with 2 layers of foam. This isn't the reason they're worth 5x the price. The AKG 240's are similar to them, but not harsh.

Yeah kinda sucks people hit cold for no apparent reason. These headphones are absolutely incredible compared to anything in the current price range and far cheaper than on amazon et al, and yet the Sennheiser HD700s are hot at twice the price despite being of comparable quality (and arguably inferior in some ways).

I've had the 250 ohms for nearly 6 years and nothing will ever replace them.

I have the QC25s from Bose and tried out a colleague's Sony 1000 for the day at work. Really impressed with the Sony phones but the sound was nicer for me from Bose and the noise cancelling and comfort was also better. There are some great features on the Sonys that I liked, particularly that they can be used without a battery with acceptable sound.

I echo other people's opinions, try both before you buy and don't ignore Bose as some rich persons toy as I did for years, I genuinely love the flat profile and the fact I can use an EQ from a good baseline if I find them wanting on the odd track.

gold3n_dragon

this or Bose qc35?


I have the Sony one and have tried QC be4.

Here is a brief comparison:
sound: Sony better
comfort: Bose
Noise cancellation: draw or Sony
feature: Sony
What's more, Sony's cups are slightly thicker than Bose's - this can go under 'comfort' and 'looks'.

If you look for comfort and no-frills nc headphones, go for Bose, otherwise, go for Sony.

A lot of people have stated that the Bose are more comfortable. I suppose it depends how long you wear them.

I'm still torn between the two. If the comfort levels were the same, I'd take the Sonys.

Specialist kit on here always gets treated badly. Though they do fair better if the opening post at least gives an idea of what it is that has been listed. Especially if it is from a brand that has a niche following.
I for one don't have a cluewhat this is. Especially when you start talking about a lav setup. The image looks like a perfume/aftershave dispenser.

I see the people who know what this is and does are being reluctant to tell us lol. I guess that makes them more powerful retaining their knowledge over us simpletons. Possibly the same people who use "code abbreviations" in work place meetings when new employees are present. I worked at a place once where it was like that and you had what I called the fast talkers. They had to get their point across in the quickest possible time and were only interested in what they had to say and drove german cars. Many had brown tongues and were middle and senior managers. Apologies to any slower talking drivers of german cars as this isn't aimed at you. Awful place with very high turnover of staff and people "disappeared" overnight. The money was damn good though. Their MD was a good fast talker but he couldn't talk the bank out of closing them down a couple of years after I left. What a plonker and I know exactly where he could stick a Newsshooter kit.

There are two parts, a transmitter which plugs into your microphone, and a receiver, which plugs into your camcorder."



I did the same. I think it monitors the frequency for wireless microphones so people don't end up sounding like norman collier. If you're young you may have to google what norman collier was part famous for.

Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 SE wireless headphones £161 @ Bax
Good price drop for a new Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 SE headphones. Amazon price is 229.
Latest commentsPost comment

£234 now unfortunately.

I personally would have got the mdr 100's over the second generation back beat pro's...the anc was brill when I tested them in Curry's.....this was while various customers were blasting various bluetooth speakers and sound bars.....really comfortable too....On this occasion my budget can't go over 100quid, which is why the creative evo zxr's were the ones for me at £99.99 ....

Original Poster

I'm returning mine in favour of Sony MDR-100ABN. Plantronics sounds definitely worse for me, with much worse ANC, will miss auto-pause though.

One thing I always found a bit weird....The press were really slow in reviewing the original back beats, which was a real shame as they truly deserve / deserved much better coverage.....Plantronics need a better marketing dept.......

Got em today! :D.....and they are very good from initial impressions. A bit bass heavy out of the box, but playing with the sound settings in the creative android app and via the music player they sound really nice....a lot of running in to do still.

Good solid construction, and not as gaudy in my subjective opinion as other reviewers have mentioned.

Comfortable with my glasses on....and without.

Button locations will take no time in getting used to....good placement and easy to remember.

These represent excellent value for money at this early stage of usage......

I do miss the class 1 bluetooth and the brill pause facility of the Back Beat Pro's but at the price I paid, they represent excellent value for money.

The true test will be on the London Underground.....once they fix it

Hope this feedback helps

I used to have a Boss DR880 back in the old days. I bought it thinking it might be a good substitute for a Roland TR909. I was very wrong. Just not the same, even though it includes 808 and 909 samples.

That being said £174 is probably a good price but i think it's gone back up now.

If you're struggling to find the shop you could use a Tom Tom.

Was gonna take the plunge earlier, checked now and it's gone back up to £500. You reckon the misprice will be honored?

the flexson is a rebadged rega rp1 with the preamp so much better table than the teac in my mind. although the on/off button is in a really stupid spot at the back.

I'm looking to buy a turntable as well. It would be my first.

From research I'm swaying towards a used vintage model something like Rega or Technics. But would be interested to know if anyone's got any advice. If I was to go with new I think it would be Pro-Ject or Rega entry models. Both can be had for less than the one above.

Go for a basic Pro-Ject.
