Wait, that's not a headphone amp, it's a high end audio interface.

That amp (apollo twin) doesn't support MQA. That means that your "experience" is not that different from Hifi quality...

The video you did is amazing, but...the headphones are absolutely expensive! Sorry! I won't spend my hard earned money on purchasing this headphones. Sennheiser headphones are amazing. I have seen a lot of people rock the headphones. Anyway, good video content, but I will not buy these headphones.

Why would anyone prefer closed pair over open one, if you're using them in silent environment at home?
Eighty8sh 13 days ago
If I could afford them, I'd buy them, but using them on my standard port on the motherboard will be a huge disservice to their intended use.
audiogek 13 days ago
Don't understand why he played this digital music. I was an audiophile and I recommend music with 100% acoustical instruments. And also never understood the closed headphones. I mean I want to hear the surroundings through an open back headphone because that makes me think I listen to actual speakers instead of a pair of headphones. All closed back headphones sound like a pair of headphones because you're completely isolated from ambient sound.

At 0:06 you say most ridiculous pair of headphones you've ever "owned", but at 8:20 you say "try or listen to" and telling Sennheiser you don't want to give them back. So I assume these were sent to you, and you don't actually "own".

Yo, @Marques, what happened to the saturation/contrast at 7:30 ? Got all jacked up compared to previous scene from same angle just before.

The m40x is a great for a beginner audiophile beleive it or not! They're actually better than the 50x, and you can get even more out of them with a dac and amp. Even without it still sounds good, they're easy to drive.

That "visual" demonstration on how to explain the different sounds is genius and very helpful for people with a hearing disability such as myself. This particular headphone in a balanced configuration is the very model of headphone I hope to one day own. It may seem ironic, but I actually do a lot of HiRed audio recordings for professional classical musicians for some 6.5 years or so now, slowly building up my reputation locally. I have always wanted to be able to have 4 of these headphones connected to my PC so the musicians can hear and review the edit I work on for them at the same time. Anyhow, nice video Mr!

The fact that such ridiculously priced headphones (and any products for that matter) is definitive proof that some people will always be stupid, ignorant and dumb to create demand for them. :)
Santosh Nair
Santosh Nair Month ago
@kniti i get your point. but this price point is ridiculous as there are lot of quality headphones in the 300-600 range itself. anyone who is spending this amount of money on these headphones need to be really ignorant of reality. Get a 1000$ headphones and give the money to charity, i say!
kniti Month ago
well they are better than any other headphones in the "normal" pricerange.. The reason for the price is the stupid slow and tedious manufactoring process of doing everything by hand and testing them every step by professionals.. It's definately not worth the price for most, but if you're an enthousiast and end up spending that kind of money on audio anyway i see no issue in paying a large sum for an extraordinary handcrafted product
