  1. This headphone under the Marantz name retails for $120 USD, yet I got it from a major hi-fi retailer for $60. The review explains why it's worth having, for those who are willing to tweak the sound or try mod'ing it. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/marantz-mph-4-around-ear-stereo-monitor-headphone-review.4550/
  2. Now this is *really* different, so before I get back to the newer and much costlier headphones, consider that this $13 USD headphone may sound better (equalized) than many so-called flagships that are played "as is". http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/jvc-flats-on-ear-stereo-mini-headphone-review.4547/
  3. The NightOwl has great potential in having tonality superior to most non-premium or non-audiophile headphones, but the frequency response tuning needs a good bit of tweaking... http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/audioquest-nightowl-audiophile-stereo-headphone-review.4528/
  4. The lowest-price full-size B&O Bluetooth headphone is much better than I expected it to be. I paid $300 USD for this gem, and it's so good that I have no desire to buy the more pricy models they sell. Works great on Bluetooth, and it can be used wired with a good DAC and headphone amp. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/b-o-bang-olufsen-h4-bluetooth-stereo-headphone-review.4447/
  5. This headphone is very similar to the Bose QC35 Bluetooth headphone, with 3 important differences. One, the price is about 1/3 of the QC35's price, at $119 USD. Two, the Matrix3 does not have Noise Canceling, although the isolation is very good. And three, Bose pretty obviously uses a DSP along with the Noise Canceling to flatten out its response, which is fairly neutral. One of the evidences for that is the QC35's Passive mode sound, which is very similar to the Matrix3 sound (the Matrix3 sound is about the same either way). http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/community/threads/mee-matrix-3-around-ear-bluetooth-stereo-headphone-review.4409/
  6. Here's a nice surprise - when this was announced, of course I wanted one, but I had doubts that it would compare favorably to the B&O H6 that cost twice as much, noting that the H6 was far from perfect itself. Not to worry - the H2 has comparable physical quality, although it's appointed much more simply and with no accessories. The H6 had (or has) a significant upper midrange emphasis that alters its tonality somewhat (compared to the usual flagships), a tonality similar to what I experienced with the $700 (USD) ATH ESW11LTD. The H2's only wart (if I can call it that) is that the treble is a few decibels shy of my minimum, where my minimum is 6 db or so shy of the Beyer T1 and T90, the AKG K812, and possibly the Sennheiser HD800. For $200 and with a fair degree of B&O quality, highly recommended. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=4207
  7. Here's something really different. I avoided the first editions of "women's headphones", from Molami and Frends among others, because the aesthetics said no to me, but this one looked interesting for testing purposes at least, because of the more subtle design and the low price. The sound is rather treble-shy, but no more so than a lot of headphones in the $150 USD price range. http://www.hifiheadphones.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=4160
