    Come to think of it but I was a member on this forums since middle of 2004. My old SpankingVanillaice account said 2004 on it I remember. But anyways I decided to keep the MDR-V300 that has neo magnets since overall when compairing the V150 the V300 sounded more clear and little more brighter. I basicly did got both sets but returned the V150 to Amazon and got my money back.

    This is only partially correct though since the source material indicated is produced mechanically content will play a role; however that role will be negligent at best. The more impactful issue at play will be a congruency in the ratio of file size to magnet.

    The answer lies in physics, Occam's Razor (or somewhere else in Occam's shaving kit) but, simply put, the size of the file has to be proportionate to the electromagnetic efficiency quotient (Lorentz force) of the carryline. At its most basic, the smaller the magnet the smaller the file should be to accurately reflect audiophile grade transients and microdynamics.

    I'd suggest compressing all files to no greater than a 64 kilobit per second transfer rate for best results if using a Neodymium magnet. Better, cheaper, and easier to address the file rather than the magnet.

    ^^^ Free entertainment at it's best. Have a look at some of the discussions on interconnect cables. That's even better. :thumbsup:

    hello guys i have 2 big headphones:

    mdr xb550ap (neodymiun)


    akg k92 (ferrite)

    Now i want to know which one is very very good for sound quality with good vocals and instruments?
    i mean both have great reviews and all... so i got an impass when i found that akg is ferrite..

    For the price, I would get the MDR. It has better bass also.
