Vulcanic Fury!


Got these in my mail today!





Short review: Will make a better one if somebody helps me take decent pics.
The soundstage is a closed one with slightly bright highs and the decent bass, nothing ground breaking but the soundstage and the highs clinch it for me. It sounded vaguely similar to the M50 with less bass and a slightly smaller soundstage.
The ANC or Active Noise Cancelling is a feature I have tested and have found to be effective, while this sobers up the highs and mutes down the mids a bit it did noticeably reduce the outside noise leakage.
The 3.5mm cable is detachable with a clip on volume adjuster which also doubles up as a mic muting tool. The mic (tested in TS and Mumble not for singing) does a a very good job of filtering out background noise and outputting what I say and not the sound of my fan as @SEB47 might know.
Detailing is very nice many things I failed to notice in my AD-300 have shown up here, is it worth the Rs.6900 you pay for it? I wouldn't know since I got it for free!
But considering the M50 retails for only slightly more this makes it a tough decision, but the Vulcan gets my vote. The problems of installing the right drivers for getting the Mic to work and all have disappeared with the arrival of the Vulcan.

Only two pics because I iz too lazy.

@ViKiD: Do let me know how off my sound analysis is.
I just wrote what I felt while that might not be the case at all.
Post to self: Check ANC with a source with an increasing volume like a tv or something.

Re: Vulcanic Fury!

Tested with ANC, its upto a certain threshold, it doesn't cover voices ka frequency but anything from background Bhajan chanting by my Grandma to my noisy fan it cancels out.

Finally found someone who liked what they got and is using it too.
Can you please check (/PM me your listening experience) in different usage scenarios- such as movies, music, gaming, chat/speech (skype, etc)
And what is that about installing drivers to get the mic to work? :S

Cool- awaiting that or is the review out already? Your listening experience of that should be a good read imho.

In the works, was busy with college work and then the Tritton A180 review. Which should be up by Saturday!

Initial impression - ANC and the mic are awesome! Build as well as the comfort is just amazing!

SQ- Pretty good for gaming, but lacks the wide soundstage, one would love. Apart from that pretty leveled across the frequencies. Just lacks the slight punch with the lows.

More soon!
