Average Rating :
Very very good headphones. looks and feels like real quality. I got the RC ones but you couldn't tell - they were perfect. Tried listening to my old headphones for comparison. the sound in thE old ones was very soupy. lots of muffled bass compared to the clear crisp bass of the B&W's. The carrying pouch for the ivory coloured ones is a bit girlie. thats my only criticism and also the leads feel very flimsy. I use them in the workshop cutting metal and it scares me a little but on the plus side - they can easily be replaced. a feature I have never seen before!
Great In-ear Headphones For Everyday Use
Anyone who enjoys high resolution audio on the go should have at least looked at Sennheiser's IE80 headphones. They give some of the best bass definition within in-ear headphones and probably are the best available at this price point. The headphones are delivered at the expected Sennheiser quality that we all love. There is a huge array of earbuds provided to ensure a perfect fit for any ears. A key point to these headphones is the tunable bass response, this is not a gimmick. With only small changes in the bass response level your favourite music can be given new life. That is not to say you need to be listening to heavy bass music to appreciate the headphones, they have excellent highs and decent mid levels. These headphones are a perfect start for anyone wanting to fully appreciate their music. The only warning I have is that after listening with these higher grade headphones, returning to cheap headphones will not be easy.
Pricey, But Worth It
Bit the bullet and replaced my Western Digital NAS with the UnitiServe - really superb user interface, very simple for the whole family to use, and I can honestly say our music never sounded so good.
Bags Of Power And Facilities
Onkyo have had a habit of producing a lot of award winning amplifiers in the past few years and have a range to rival any of their competitors. In the high end series you have 3 potential options I chose the middle model to trail out for a few weeks and to see what you get for £2000. Design & Construction Now for the boring part, as you would expect the TX-NR3010 comes with a host of connections and no less than 9 HDMI inputs and two outputs, so you shouldn’t have problems wiring in your multiple high definition devices. The speaker options are many with the main system being a 9.2 channel amp (& for all you people who don’t think that’s enough you have an 11.4 analogue output to fulfil your entire home cinema needs) & 160 watts per-channel will be more than ample to power your speakers. As with most AV receiver’s you have a range of networking options to make it the hub of your entertainment such as internet radio, last.fm & Spotify & with the ability to play all of your flac & apple loss less files quality music is just a fingertip away. Performance When it came to giving this a good I try out I decided to attack it on three fronts, 1-Bluray 2-Gaming & 3 music streaming. BLU-RAY On the blu-ray front I went with star trek and from the opening volley of shots I was blown away with the power, the base was hard but but with no loss detail dealing exceptionally well with a difficult start. Where the amp really came into it’s on was the first warp jump the dynamics were mind blowing, I was expecting to lose a little of the detail but it was composed & controlled. GAMING On the gaming front I went with my favourite game Mass effect 3, this has the feel of summer blockbuster with massive movie sequences & intense game play , from the sharpness of the dialog in the attack on earth to the massive base drops of the reaper attack the onkyo dealt with the dynamics beautifully. In solid game play the separation of gun fire & vocals was tight & clear with a layer of depth I hadn’t heard on my previous amp. MUSIC/2 CHANNEL When it came to music I listened to Linkin Parks ‘a thousand suns’ this was a little more experimental and cutting edge and used numerous genres but I find it really does test most systems. In the track ‘waiting for the end’ the amp makes the most of the rip soaring ballad, the verses are subtle with great depth & explode with chester’s massive chorus. When it comes to the harsher ‘wretches & kings’ again the amp deals with harshness & power with confidence. Conclusion As I said in the beginning there are a lot of high end amps on the market, and at this price point you would expect a lot for your money and I’m happy to say at the Onkyo delivers on almost everything. The amp has no problem with power, but it’s how it controls that power that really impresses, no matter the input. Detail is not the sharpest out there but with the right speakers and set up its no issue.
