To counter some of the people here - I own a set of these, and LOVE them. The built-in amp sounds good, they are very comfortable. While they're heavier than most, they don't bother me. I am comfortable using these both for home listening and office listening.
do you still have these cans? What music genre do you think they’re good for? What do you hunk about their sound signature?
I dont often do it, if at all, but I purchased these blindly because they aren’t easily available in store in my country.
I'm so sorry, I didn't notice this question until now - did you ever end up getting them?
The sound signature varies greatly based on the use of the built-in amplifier. Generally speaking I'd call them fairly flat with a low-end bump. The sound stage isn't the largest I've ever heard, but good for closed-back. I like them for rock, hip hop, not my favorite for jazz or classical.
I love them, more than the Ellas I bought and sold. The Ellas were very flat and accurate, but there were some driver inconsistencies between frequencies I could hear. I changed amps and DACs, same problem. So, maybe I was a QC issue.
As for the Sadies- love them and kept them. A lot of body to vocals, more of a pleasure to listen to, subjectively, has a more analog sound. I simply love them with tubes and SS amps. I use it with my CTH and Genalex Gold Lions, and my THX 789. DAC is now an SMSL SU-8 version 1.3. So much excellent texture in instruments and vocals, and they have that dynamic driver impact. The Ella, like some other planars, felt a bit too flat.
I think the Sadie MSRP is overpriced, but it’s performance and quality is under appreciated. Definitely a leisure HP - so enjoyable.
