which are better for use with an mp3 player
The PX100 are open back and the PX200 are closed back, so it would depend on where you are going to listen with them and if you don't mind annoying people in close proximity (open backed). The closed back (PX200) will sound more bassy but will not leak sound and will limit the amount of outside noise interfering with your listening.which are better for use with an mp3 player
Yes they are clear but there's NO BASS! NONE! So in my book that is not enjoying the music to its full potential. Sounds to me like you haven't compared the 200s to anything else decent.i have a pair of PX200 and they are totally cool, the sound is so crisp in your ear you can feel every beat and tone with crystal clarity, if you want to let others enjoy your music as well then PX100 is the choice, however if you want to toally enjoy your music to its full, then do as i did and get yourself the PX200's
I have a pair of PX200 right here and tested them again. When I just put them and wear them normally they sound pretty clear but tinny and bass light and no altering of the angle can improve things.In my experience the PX200's either fit your ears well, and the bass response is good, or they fit badly and the bass response is poor. The poor bass response on badly fitting headphones is due to the bass frequencies leaking to the outside world.
The PX200's are designed to be sealed (or in other words have a closed back), so they depend on a good fit to give the desired response. You may get better bass response by moving the headband towards the back of your head, and therefore presenting the earpads at a different angle on your ears.
I'm guessing the differences in fit explain the contradictory experiences in this thread.
