game changing closed headphones

Masabumi, 14.07.2017
Despite the fact that those are closed headphones, I found myself many times in the situation where I have to take them off to check if main monitors are not on as well. That's how well they simulate space! Fantastic sound and craft, you can keep them on for hours.

the ideal

I have a really good kh searched, the task of monitorboxen met, so that I can run sound design on the way, which I do not have to verify in the studio.

I had to work in the studio always afterwards, so I was quite worried if I can deliver at all without boxes.

In different forums I read out that the k-812 seem super to seem, with a slight flaw in the height, which was probably corrected in the 872. I found no other headphones, which came against the 812/872. Always and everywhere the talk of beautiful staining, the 872 was the most linear compare in all.

I jumped into the cold water, pushed the coal over the table.

First Conclusion:
Yessongs: for the first time the convincing impression that here nothing sounds close. As if they were in the audience

Vulfpeck "the beautiful game": also here nothing close, everything works together in a wonderful space. A bliss, to follow this organic game and sometimes only to the wonderful compression.

Prince "prince": everything close and simple staggered, cool and mathematical, a confirmation for my prejudice.

Own mixe: some blow me away, to others I wanted to immediately write long todo listeners. Also in full, gloomy mixen (my soundideal is the exile on main street) I hear every patzer and every geniusreich each instrument immediately.

The heights are of course natural that the first impression would label a dark sound.
But with the time, this impression of security, everything just as it is.

The k-872 are a drug, the price is measured at boxing prices a joke.
I have not heard so finely resolved sound, in any studio, on no monitors.

Today I would verify my monitormixe rather on the 872, I certainly hear 50% more than with my 1032A.
Correct listening: unbeatable
Creative listening: unbeatable
Listen to music: as if everything had been mp3 so far
Girlfriend gets the thing all the time

Packaging and carry-case are also of the highest quality and really desirable design.

What the others write is true: by the absence of the beautiful staining körpi also longer working hours, after the settling is the head full of ideas.

Wear comfort is not surprising ideal, for girlfriend the strap is not small enough. But she does ne nebes down. That actually says everything.
