Open headphones is designed purely to listen at home.
Setup: Dell E6420 laptop, external soundcard External Sound Card USB 6 Channel 5.1 Audio, J River Media Center.
Youtube driven playlists: mozart to "Cat Daddy"
Current favourite: Adele 19 and 21 in FLAC lossless format ripped from Vinyl.
The fabric ear cups feel clouds.
I normally find the mid-end leather headphones uncomfortable. My ears get really hot.
Fits my big head (XL size ski helmet).
-head band is not too tight
-Semi-open -MA900 is completely open
-Ear pads is cloth not pleather, I could wear this for hours without sweat.
-I removed the grills (3 screws) to shave off a few more grams and allows the driver to "float" completely on my ear. The driver is held in the center by plastic fabric.
-not recommended for the hairless as there are no pads on the headband itself, you could get yourself tennis racket handle cushion and wrap it.
-Long and thick 3 meter cord allows me walk to the kitchen to make a cup of tea
It's very flat and neutral, like studio monitors. Has no character. But this leaves you a blank canvas to play any music.
You'll need an amp with an equalizer to adjust to your tastes. People who like bass can still get the bass, it's enough to vibrate the headband without much distortion.
It's one of the cheapest non-pleather ear pad headphones available in the market (the smaller MA100 is less).
