Sound Signature

Sound Staging & Imaging
Sound Staging and Imaging refers to the ability of a pair of headphones to create the placement of instruments and vocalists in a recording. A small sound stage is very difficult to determine where the instruments are in relation to the vocalists, everything sounds like it's coming from the same place. An extra large sound stage separates the instruments and vocalists so that you can clearly tell where each is on the sound stage.
Medium

Bass Detail
How accurately a headphone can reproduce bass notes; a culmination of attack, speed, decay and clarity. Attack is how precisely it can begin a bass note without delay. Speed is the ability to continue to attack an array of bass notes without lagging. Decay is the length of time after a bass note ends that the sound is still heard. Clarity is how easily all bass frequencies are heard. It gives perception of loose, tight, or muddy bass.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Enclosed-Ear
Headband Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.
Home/Portable
Headphone Application

This is the application that the headphones are designed for. Each application has unique features that make it perfect for particular uses.

DJ: These headphones are durable, loud, and will often allow for one ear listening.

Gaming Delivers explosive sound and allows you to communicate with others.

Home Hi-Fi: These audiophile headphones are engineered to produce high fidelity and accurate audio.

Home/Office: These headphones are designed to produce rich, brilliant sounds that the artists would appreciate.

Sports: Designed for active use. These headphones are made to stay in (or on) the ear during workouts.

Kids: Feature noise limiting technology so that your little ones don't damage their ears listening to music too loud.

On-the-Go: On-the-go headphones are lightweight and often fold up for easy storage and portability.

Student: Compact and rugged enough to survive life in a backpack; inexpensive enough to not hurt the wallet of a student.

Studio: Reproduce music perfectly without any coloration. Look here for reference quality studio monitoring headphones.

Traveler/Airplane: These headphones are compact, lightweight, and have a portable design.

Home Hi-Fi
Home/Office
Student
Traveler/Airplane
Acoustic Principle

The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types:

Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source.

Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room.

Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

Closed

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
No
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
No

This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Bluetooth means that the audio signal is transmitted from your device to the headphones via a Bluetooth connection.

Corded or Bluetooth means that the headphones can be used as corded headphones or as Bluetooth headphones. They have an input in one or both earcups for use as a corded headphone while they also have a built-in battery for use as Bluetooth wireless headphones.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
No
Jack Size

Audio Features

Driver Type

The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

Balanced Armature:
A balanced armature driver uses a coil wrapped around an armature which is held in between two magnets until it is stimulated by an electrical current. When stimulated, this armature is magnetized which causes it to rotate one way or the other around a pivot point which moves the diaphragm to create sound. Balanced armature driver headphones are generally earbuds and can have multiple drivers in each earbud.

Dynamic:
Dynamic drivers are the most common driver type. They feature a permanent magnet, usually neodymium, a voice coil and a conical diaphragm to drive your music. A dynamic headphone driver looks pretty much identical to any typical home theater speaker.

Electrostatic:
Electrostatic drivers are made up of an extremely thin membrane, usually a coated PET film, stretched between two metal plates. An electrical signal is applied to the metal plates to create an electrical field which, depending on its polarity, draws the speaker diaphragm toward one of the plates which forces air through the perforations in the diaphragm which generates the sound wave.

Planar Magnetic:
A planar magnetic driver is made up of a large membrane suspended between two sets of oppositely aligned magnets. An electric charge is applied to the membrane to induce movement and produce sound waves.

Dynamic
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
64 ohms
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
100 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
42 mm
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 26000 Hz
Audiophile
Audiophile headphones represent some of the finest headphones available. Audiophile headphones produce genuinely outstanding sound quality as well as extraordinary build quality, components and comfort. They are truly the finest headphones available.
Yes
Built-in Amplifier
This refers to whether the headphones have an amplifier built-in.
No

Great and comfortable pair of headphones!

September 29, 2014

By no means am I an audiophile, but I feel I can still appreciate the sound of some good 'phones.

The NVX's are extremely comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time and with eyeglasses (I'm an all-day wearing of my specs so this was important!). My ears never feel sweaty or like my skull is weighed down while they're on. They're actually a pleasure to wear!

They feel sturdy so far, but I'm not rough on any of my possessions so I can't speak for how well they'll stand up to drops and such. They're bulky though and not exactly the greatest things to wear around in public. The XPTs are large and noticeable from far off, but if you're okay with that these babies are more than worth that small shortcoming.

As far as sound goes, they seem very balanced to me. No single tone seems to outshine the other at any point; the bass is warm but not loud, vocals shine but aren't overpowering, and you can definitely hear every instrument in a song without any of them feeling muddied or muffled by another. The bass is clear in rap songs where it's needed and invisible in songs where it's not, which is another huge point for them. In all I love these headphones and feel like I couldn't have made a better choice in buying them.

Excellent Studio Headphones

October 23, 2012

These headphones are flat out amazing. They firmly, yet comfortably, cup your ears so you are isolated in the experience. They are soft and will not make your ears over heat. The large 42mm neodymium drivers deliver the 10hz-26khz sound and expose parts of songs I had never heard before. I thoroughly enjoy my music, or I can really work in these to deliver an accurate mix to a client in whatever environment I am mixing in. With the warranty and all the extras they come with you would really be doing yourself a disservice to not at least take a listen. I'm buying a second set.

Best reference headphones under $150. Period.

February 3, 2014

These make the legendary-status Creative Aurvana Live! ($60 to $80) sound bad. That said, there is no headphone currently near this price that will deliver the same neutrality, accuracy, control, or comfort that the XPT100s do.

I could do an extensive comparison between these and the other sets of headphones I own (CAL!, ATH-M50, Panasonic HTF600, Marley EM-JH020-MI, I could go on), but I won't because there is simply nothing to compare. These win in every aspect except for portability. The cheapest headphone that compares to the NVX XPT100 is the $170 Sennheiser HD25-II 1.

If you are looking for at-home listening cans, buy these now. You needn't spend any more time reading reviews, finding comparisons, or doing any other kind of research.

A hard to beat buy

November 21, 2014

Simply put the NVX XPT100 are, in my opinion, the headphone to purchase in the ~$100 range. They provide a sound that's compared to headphones 3 times it's price while severely outclassing every closed headphone in it's price range, again in my opinion. As a complete package the XPT100 are astonishing headphones, the inclusion of angled pads and a second set of cables is icing on the cake.

If you have any concerns about the quality of these, please drop them at the door and order a pair if you want a balanced closed headphone at an excellent price.

Very Comfortable and Good Sound Quality

August 4, 2014

I've been using in-ear headphones for a long time and I wasn't sure about over-ear headphones. But with XPT100 you'll get a great sound for the money and it's so comfortable you'll want to keep them on your ears even when you're not listening.

No need to look further if your budget is up to $100

April 14, 2014

I have tried few headphones before settling with the XPT100s. What I like about them is:

1. Comfort - You will not forget that you have them on but the padding is very generous and does not put pressure on your ears in any spots. Though due to their size they are not suitable for outdoor use unless you do not care how you look. At home - very comfy.

2. Large ear cups - I like when headphones do not touch my ears and they are perfect in this area.

3. Sound - Very natural sounding and easy to listen to. There are no harsh highs or booming lows. Soundstage is somewhat lacking but that can be expected from a closed headphones. Overall you can listen to them for hours without fatigue.

4. Isolation - They isolate very well. I guess that's due to the large ear cups and extra padding.

5. Short cable (in an addition to a long cable) - Good when your main use is laptop or mp3 player so you do not have to trip over extra feet of cable.

So far I have no dislikes. I haven't rated durability as I own them only for a few weeks. So far they have held up pretty well. NOTE: I put 3 out of 5 (middle) just because I can't submit no rating.

I would highly recommend them if you want good home headphones on a limited budget.

Love them!

March 18, 2014

I love them! They are more then comfortable. The clamp is light and the cushions feel like leather pillows wrapped around your ears. I really like the appearance of them, totally my style with that dark brushed look. Some have complained about the super flexy headband, but I actually like it. Some have also complained about the big carrying case, but I actually like that too; I throw it in my gym bag with everything else on a daily basis for work and I know they're safe. I guess my ONLY complaint, and a small one at that, is that on devices that don't output allot of power will make you wanting the volume louder when already maxed out. But, I will probably be getting a portable amp/dac combo for that. also, the extra angled ear pads i found nice when laying down, because you can tilt the headphones foward and still have a proper fit.

as for the sound: clear and clean. these are very nuetral headphones, which makes them very versitile. youtube/netflix is great due to this. also, i am a little sensative to high treble, and these headphones let me listen without discomfort. it's exactly what i wanted, nuetral sound with easy-to-listen treble, and clean bass ( i don't listen to rap or anything, and i don't like over-done, muddy deep bass ) and extremely comfortable. for the price, get these no questions asked.

I've been using these headphones for the past several months and they have really grown on me. I had previously been using HD280 pros and M50s for my monitoring but these have fit right in with my standard issue headphones. The angled ear pads make this more comfortable than my others so i find that i'm using them more. I'd recommend them.

Excellent, maximum bang for your buck!

September 17, 2013

Prior headphones: Senn HD650, grado sr325is, where se530, audio technical es7, vmoda m100

These headphones are very impressive. Out of all my headphones, these are the most neutral. They have a decent soundstage that doesn't get congested. Their sound is the most versatile, doing justice to all varieties of music, faithfully. They benefit from amping, but don't need anything powerful. Unless you have a solid DAC/amp, these are superior to even the senn 650s. I've never purchased a headphone that was as worthy as these, given they're only 100 dollars. Compared to the $300 M100s, these are absolutely superior. These lack any strong coloration, which depending on what you're looking for, may sound dull at first.

The construction feels a little flimsy at first, and they could be a little tighter( build wise, not fit). However the trade off is these are incredibly light, and very comfortable ( I personally prefer the default flat pads).

Bottom line: if you're looking for a cheap jump into the headphone world, honestly look no further-

I've also heard where 840s, Sony MDR v6, audio technical m50s, akg k240s. None of them provide such textured bass, smooth mids, and detailed treble, with such comfort and low amp requirements for $100. Lack of portability is the only limitation. Get 'em!

Awesome headphones

August 29, 2012

These headphones are awesome. The sound is better than any other headphones I have every used and they are comfortable enough to wear for hours. The noise reduction is so good I can’t hear my wife yelling at me in the background. They give a whole new meaning to drowning in sound. I can't wait to use them on long plane trips.

Great Value

Got this one during President's Day sale and I would say it is the best bang for the buck. Sound stage is outstanding. Good all-arounder. Pads are comfy but get a little warm after an hour or two. If you want a fuller, punchier bass, you might wanna consider something else though.

Great headphones. The sound is awesome. The only con is that they're not collapsible and are not good for mobile use.

Great sound, great comfort

June 6, 2015

It has been years since I have used headphones. That being said, these sound great to me. The sound is very clear and somewhat neutral - no range (bass, mid range, treble) seems to be emphasized. They are extremely comfortable. I can also use them with my computer (or wife's iPad) without added amplification. The only drawback I see is that they are somewhat bulky - I probably won't be using them for travel, though they do come with a large travel case.

Excellent gift

December 28, 2014

The first thing my son did was to try them on with the flat pads ... then he changed it with the angled pads. He simply loves them.
The sound of this headset is so great that I have to yell twice to call him diner's ready... :-(
But it really was a great Christmas grift. My son says they do exactly what their website says and that was the reason he chose them.

Amazing Sound Quality

June 21, 2015

I got these headphones to replace a Sony MDR-XB500 that I've had for 3 years and wanted something different. As of now, I've owned these headphones for a month, and I must say that NVX has made one of the best headphones I've ever experienced. The characteristics of these headphones include:

- Very Lightweight
- Studio Grade Sound Quality
- Soft/Smooth Leather Cups

Comparing these to the Sony I had before, it has a much more clearer sound response, but the bass isn't as strong as the Sony. Don't get me wrong though; these headphones can hit subsonic notes and still sound somewhat loud on the bass.

I also use these headphones for music production with FL Studio. When experimenting with sounds, you can hear the slightest irregularity in uncorrected sounds to allow you to produce better sounds.

Needless say if you have considered these headphones, but hesitant to get one, you won't be disappointed.

Great Headphones, BUT

October 3, 2015

I love the sound of these headphones. But the short 1.3 meter cable was bad , lucky they also came with a 3 meter cable. No replacement cable on NVX site. Found Brianwavz HM5 cable on mp4ntion.com for $9.50 free shipping. from Hong Kong. Received the new cable in 15 days. Works great.
I do not think anyone could go wrong with buying these, I listen to them for hours at a time with zero problems. I remember buying headphones for $50 back in the 80s (a lot for me then) that did not sound this good. $80 was a bargain and with the $5 refund for the bad cable, just cake.

Not What I Was Hoping For

March 2, 2016

Given all of the reviews I read on the NVX Audi XPT100 headhones and how so many people thought they were amazing, I was thoroughly disappointed.

I was buying these to replace my Sony MDR-XB500 headphones as they're getting old and starting to wear out (I've had them for about 5 years now). After switching back and forth between the XB500s and the XPT100s, listening to the same part of the same song and keeping the volume exactly the same, the XB500s are better.

Between my father and I, we have around $50-60,000 worth of home audio equipment (surround sound, vacuum tube amplifiers, high-end this, high-end that and so on). I wouldn't quite go as far as to call myself an audiophile, but I am really picky when it comes to my headphones, and the XPT100s didn't quite reach my standards. I'm not saying they're bad headphones, I'm just saying the XB500s perform better for what I like.

For lows, the XPT100s are rated to 10Hz whereas the XB500s are rated to 4Hz. Granted, average human hearing is only down to about 20Hz or so, but as the frequencies drop below 30Hz, the XPT100s fizzle out and stop producing low frequencies while the XB500s power straight through and rattle your entire head.

For volume output, the XPT100s aren't quite as efficient as the XB500s. Keeping the volume the same on my laptop/headphone amp, and the XB500s produce more sound on the same power. And as I increased the power higher and higher, the XPT100s began to distort much sooner than the XB500s did.

Also, everyone raved about how comfortable the XPT100s were, but (again, in my opinion and what I've been using for the past 5 years), compared to the XB500s, the XPT100s felt cheap, with minimal cushion on the ear cups.



All in all, they are decent headphones, but compared to what I've been used to for the past 5 years, the NVX Audio XPT100s are no match for the Sony MDR XB500s.

Worth everything it cost

February 16, 2016

Would I pay MSRP? Yes... the cost on sonic make them even more of a steal, i'm wondering why i didn't buy them sooner, I am just completely lost in my music, the bass is good, the trebles are crisp, and everything is where it should be. They are on the larger end of the spectrum given its size, but the large size means comfort, right? in this case, yes, these are the most comfortable headphones you'll wear ever. I've worn turtle beach, bose, and beats audio headphones (beats audio is horrible). These are better at comfort and sound in both turtle beach and bose, and it's no competition when compared to beats audio.

There are some great features on these headphones found only on other higher end sets that cost 3 or 4 times what these cost, like removable cables, a custom case, different style drop in ear muffs, and made of completely of metal. Never have i heard music as good as this, and never will you hear music as good as this.

- Overall a 5 (i'm a huge NVX fan, basically NVX everything for audio)
- Value, given this is a $200 set of phones for $80, definite 5 and i would stay pay $200 for these
- Durability is a solid 5, the flexible head bridge I was able to twist with little effort and it just whipped right back into place, so will not break easily
- Features is a solid 5, different lengthed cables and two ear muff styles to suit your needs, definitely has more features than some $300+ phones
- Ease of use I am only giving a 4, the jacks that attach to the cans aren't letter labeled, so i had to go into the manual to find that grey is left and black is right. it also takes a bit of force to get them to pop in, this should become easier with time.

Good sound, extremely comfortable, I like the two cables in each ear rather than just one, I use it with a Zalman mic and it's incredible. The sound is very, very decent.

Great headphone with lots of accessories

October 26, 2015

I own a ton of headphones. Opening the box of XPT100 makes me feel like I got a lot for my money. Definitely nice to see ton of goodies in the box. An extra set of pads is something I appreciate a lot.
Headphone fits my relatively big head comfortably. As a comparision DT880 premium doesn't fit my head as easily as these.
Sound is neutral. I still haven't listened to these extensively. So I might come back later to update this review.

I've never owned a nice pair of headphones before, but wanted some that are good to start out with. I saw reviews and these headphones were high quality for the price range and most reviews were very positive. Looked them up on Google shopping and this store popped up as being Google trusted and lowest priced.

NVX is the best, plus it's about time I get a good set of headphones
Charles B on Feb 13, 2016
After looking at every option available, I decided on these as a proper upgrade to my HD681 EVO headphones; while the sound is amazing for the price, the comfort leaves much to be desired. The XPT100, however, seems to have the best of all worlds!
