I second the Meze 109Pro! I'm selling my HD800 for them, I like them more than HD800 with EQ, which was my favourite headphone prior to getting the Meze!

Everyone measures headphones these days, there are a lof of sources of headphone measurement data available on the internet. What is not so readily available is source equipment and speaker measurements so would be great if Amir can fill in that gap with his measurement equipment and experience.

I vote for Violectric DHA V226

I'm doing like the opposite. Returned my Meze 109 pro after a week and want to buy the 800s now.

Did you EQ it? I used Oratory EQ which made it a lot better to me. The only thing I don't like is that I wish the cups were a little larger. My large ears are touching the pads, but the pads are really soft anyway.

Hey everyone, first post here!

I would like to see Amir's take on the IE-200 as there seem to be many conflicting reviews and I'm curious as to where Amir would land.

I couldn't find an EQ setting at that time and I only had 14 days to return them. I've just bought the hd 650 for 1/4th of the price, applied Amirs EQ and I'm much happier now. Will eventually buy the 800s but maybe in a couple of months

thieaudio ghost (with meze 109 pads) and meze 109 pro a well known youtubers claims they are almost the same....
I would not put any stock in Zeos's opinions, he's useless and loves everything new until next month when something newer comes out.

from headphones.com review. I think it looks horrible as well, cheap generic-looking headband matched with HD580-like grille and tacky gold ring around it. Not for me.
