OooOOH AAAaaAh
And it's only $200....

But I think I found my winner.... I only wonder how they would fit on my head.

Comparing their stats to the Akgusa....
The highest range of sensitivity that any of the Akgusa have is to 94 dB/mW, where as the sony outputs to 107 db/mW
The power is off the charts on the sony (3000 mW) as compared to the 200mW of the Akgusa and the frequency range of the Akgusa (15-25,000Hz) just isn't as impressive as the super low range capability on the sony (down to 5 Hz).

Now, do I know if that really makes *that* much of a difference?
No.

Still impressive.
(and since I've no idea of a price range on the Akgusa... I don't know if they're a total rip off or just not made for the same sort of sound...)
I didn't look very far into the Sennheiser 'phones becuase they struck me as being very very similar to the Akgusa and I'm of the mind (and I could be horribly wrong here) that they're just geared toward different things.

Those are the two SONY sets I mentioned last night, actually. I've heard great things about the wireless ones, but I haven't used them personally. The MDR-V700DJ are the ones I use in my studio - I have two sets, one for the DJ rack and one for the production setup, and I've been very happy with them. I chose them after checking out many other brands and models, and they're definitely a solid pick.

As for AKG, I have a set of those too but they're the "cheap extra set" for when other people are in the studio and I need a spare pair. They're ok, but they aren't nearly as clean or powerful as the SONY models, and they also give in to distortion (both immediate and long-term) much easier than the SONYs. It's one of their high-end models, too, so there you go. I'd agree on the Sennheiser as well.

This is just my personal preference/experience however - your ears are really the best judge, but even speaking from a technical perspective, the SONYs still win in my book.

Oh - and they're comfy too, but then I don't have a Hollyhead. ;)

hehe.. I couldn't remember which you said, so I just went and looked. Kooky.

I checked out the AKG and Sennheiser first.. .their stats are very similar.. the only difference that seemed all that great was the weight of the phones. Heh.
Then I looked at the sony and just... shit GADDAMN, they're some impressive stats...

Like I said last night.. both my most used headphones have been sony and I've liked them, I just want the bigger, better, more of it.
I mean ... the ones I use here at the computer (the comfy ones) .. I looked them up earlier and you can literally get them for $10.
But they're still pretty damned good and, old as they are, it's taken a *really* long time for their quality to degrade.
The others are $20 headphones, another cheap set, and would be great if the ear pads were bigger and went AROUND my hears instead of sitting right on them and *squeazing* them into little pulpy ear bits. (they say they're "supra aural" but.. mmmno. I have small ears... there's no way these would fit AROUND most people's ears)

rambling? yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh.

Hehe - well, I'm fond of AKG mics - and I thought - HOPED rather - that their headphones would be of similar quality - which is why I suggested the site. Right now I'm using an older Sony set - and while they work fine, I've been thinking about upgrading - the Sonys DO look a lot better...!
