The only real fragile thing on them is the yokes (which is easy to fix with gorilla glue/20 dollars spent on ebay). Flexible metal band runs through the headband.

They are but you don't need just /g/'s approval. They're essentially well recommended anywhere.

>>110962565
It adds a dip in the midbass and lower midrange. MDR-7506 already has a dip there so that worsens it.

>>110962624
It's okay but the comfort is pretty poor. I would suggest dynamics or electrostatics for daily general use.

Stellar if you can live with the weight and comfort. Using them right now myself but they are so heavy and the headband isn't comfy at all so I tend to switch to HD 650s after a while. Or I just use speakers.

>They are the beats of /g/.
Pretty much every place where they talk about headphones recommends those, from Reddit to Amazon to youtube headphone people.

They aren't a /g/ meme. Just the most recommended headphone on the Internet.

CG trolls what ever he he thinks will upset /hpg/ the most. If someone likes Beyer, he spams treble rape, if someone likes, Etymotic, he spams ear dildos, if someone likes Sennheiser, he spams mud, if someone likes AKG, he spams weebshit.

>>110962350
It depends. They're great value for money, they have good build quality and will last for years. They sound good too, being fairly balanced with a tight punchy bass that isn't over bearing, The treble is boosted and can be sibilant, you can easily EQ this down with equaliser APO in Windows. Ask /hpg/ about it. The pleather pads supplied by Sony will also crack and flake after a year, these can be replaced with cheaper ones available from Amazon or Ebay. You can also use Beyer DT250 velour pads or Auray sheepskin pads.

It actually makes the sub-bass clearer but the sibilance gets worse. Also electric guitars sound thinner. Haven't you noticed it?
>>
>>110962624
You could try HE-560, not sure about the price of them. But they got better headband and are significantly lighter.
>>
>>110962760
They're the most recommended because the general population likes nigra bass by dr nigrabass and the ATH-M50 is just a less expensive, less retarded version of the beats but still sounds terribly bassy.
>>
>>110962773
oh a vocal actor using 7506 instead of cd900st?

In that case I'd recommend the GMP 8.35. Excellent all-rounder closed monitor cans, speedy and easier to drive compared to most Beyers (and this comes from a former fan of them).

What's the point of listening to music with expensive headphones when you aren't a classically trained musician?

You don't even know anything about music so it's not like you can even appreciate it.

Judging from reactions on head fi with the tenores quality control seems to vary quite widely. I was somewhat intrigued by them. But fuck that if I might get burned on a pair and have no way of getting a refund.

M50s get trolled on /g/ because they're popular and have slightly emphasized bass. They're nowhere near as bass-heavy as beats are.

They both have extremely good build quality. If you break an M50 you're probably a retard.
V6s/7506's are brighter headphones, which people who are just starting with the hobby might not like. It's safer to recommend a slightly bass-emphasized headphone than a treble-emphasized headphone.

Apparently ZA cut down on the QC issues in 2014. No source for that. Try your luck.

I have a CBasso and it's great when I first got it but recently I've started to begin hating amplified bass so I don't appreciate it as much as I should. I might be getting the tenores but in a later year, hopefully when the QC issues have been more ironed out. That's if a better IEM hasn't taken its place yet.

If it's anything like the CB I suspect it'd be less bassy and much more detailed. In fact, I might just buy one soon anyway. The bassyness of the CB is really starting to get to me. It's so bassy. Too bassy. Basso indeed.

High volume listening might be an issue with the DT990 but you can EQ it out.

Okay mr. closedcans I see can why you're gravely misunderstanding.

>>110965014
It's not harsh at all. Your ears may vary but I've actually heard harsh treble which is painful and irritating so I know what that's like. People just like to misread FR charts or listen to music at super loud volumes. If you're not part of the latter, you'll find the 990's treble is very agreeable.

You'd have to be really fucking stupid to cause any of those to happen.

Even my HD595s, which I've admittedly treated like shit at times, only have a very small crack on the side, and that was because my imouto treated them even worse than I did.

For the price they're good, they're comfy and they fit well. I've always had them for 3 years with no sign of wear and tear, and they're good for producing because of their pretty flat response. Some people say they're "too bassy" but I find them pretty okay. I do notice when I'm EQing lower end it is hard to determine how high the bass really is though, which is why I've been planning on getting some new headphones. But these have just been too reliable to get rid of.

Learn too equalize. The only reason GAYMUR headphones have "more" bass is because they normally have a hardware EQ on board along with the DAC.
>>
>>110971560
They still need to be broken in some more, there wasn't much noticeable difference between my 428s. Then again I've used my 428s every day for the past 4 years and hardly have any time with my 660s.

I would say the bass is good, but every time I wear them I get a headache because my head is kind of wide.

Basically, some soundcards don't output enough volume to make the music sound loud enough or good enough for high-quality headphones to maximize their potential. Amps both improve the volume as well as the sound itself (depending on the amp) so that the sound meshes well with your headphones.
>>
>>110972890
Some metal bands specifically use shitty equipment to make the music sound terrible.
>>
>>110972904
I'd been looking into buying one, but don't really want to drop 100 plus on it. Also, are there any headphones that have built in amps? Curious, not looking to buy one but it seems like it would make sense to.

>>110972810
some headphones require more power to play music no only to boost the music but also to make it sound better by removing distortion (you can look it up it. Its pretty much sound changing because of not enough power) amps dont make headphones sound better. It is used to supply the power phones or computers are not capable of. That is why most people want audibly transparent amps.
>>
>>110972992
>to make the music sound terrible.
But, considering it's black metal, they really didn't need to use poor equipment to achieve that.

This is what you're supposed to do with FLAC though. I mean, 320 kps is more common, but FLAC is only for storage and distribution. It's for getting around the whole "Ripping a ripped mp3 that sounds like ass" problem. There's no audible difference between a FLAC and an mp3 rip from that FLAC.

They're great, good for the price. Some people complain about bass, but while they have more than some other headphones they are still very neutral. Some complain about the lack of soundstage... can't say they're wrong, but it's not too bad unless you want to use them to play games. Some complain that they aren't comfy, I guess it's because they have a rather strong clamp but I have a small head so they are fine for me. I tried every other option in that price range and there was always something wrong, then again I wanted to wear them in the metro so open backs and non-portable phone were out of the question. It's a well spent 130$. I'm kind of lucky that the store I went to was selling the version with detachable cable for the same prce as the regular one, I've seen it around 180$.

The fags who call them memephones and shit are just troll/hipster who hate on anything popular/ don't like them and are tired of hearing people talking about them.

I'm also love classical style music. One of the big reasons I love downloading OSTs is because the emotional tracks use that kind of style for the most part. Erik Satie makes some amazing piano songs too. Gymnopédies being my favorite.

As an someone who only owns Sennheiser headphones, I really like the M50s, just not enough to but them. I'd like to get my hands on some DT 770s someday for reference.

Except for you middle choice you have good taste. Especially since earphones shouldn't really count.

Do you know how hard is to find someone who actually feels the music, and not just says:

>I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE "EMOTION"

Damn, I'm all yours nigga. Let's learn some Cello/Piano since I've learned only guitar on Drop C and start a career.

>>110976788
Not that anon, but you should check out Philip Glass if you like Satie. Metamorphosis is fucking great if you love minimalistic piano pieces.

ive gone through half a dozen mic's in 3 years but still have my uncracked sennheiser headphones
how do i do it?

>>110959216
I'm not a baby that lives with my parents and have to hide my sounds. I use speakers like a man.
>>
Unless you are listening to a bluray rip that properly encoded the audio, you are wasting your time with high end audio. Most audio has sub par mastering that negates any reason to use headphones or speakers with proper soundstage.
>>
>>110977015
And yet it still doesn't sit atop the head. So directional sounds probably sound wrong. You might not notice it if you haven't worn proper headphones.
>>
I've been noticing there's a very small noise coming from my headphones, it sounds like a raddle. It only happens once and a while but it's really annoying. How would I got about fixing that?

Most likely you are getting noise from an improperly shielded cable.

I have, I primarily use speakers.

Speakers are the ones with proper directional sounds. Headphones and IEMs are flawed in this regard.

>>110977253
Doubt it's that, it only really happens when with there's a lot of higher range noise from what I've noticed.

I know the feel, anon.
I like some random song from doujin albums, but I never managed to listen to an entire album.
I always get bored, and music is too distracting to listen to when I'm doing something else.

headphones like the ones below actually have an open design and people can hear wat you are listening too.

There I fixed it for you, if you need more explaination that this you should probably go to /mu/ and ask them.

Sorry brah, pic related would be my real waifu since the one I wanted is canonically taken.

>>110977636
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2kXzP7-UTc The open design is fucking amazing. That snap after the bass starts actually sounds like it came from a distance. Compared to my car speakers or earbuds where it just sounds there.

I'd rather not.
Googling has given me that weird ass apple face and I know that it's some inner joke for them so I'd rather not ask them.

If you have sensitive items you can see if the problem is your headphones since you should have a silent noise floor unless you have a cheap tube amp. If it's your headphones, you're screwed unless they are warranty or you are good with digital electronics.

The best choice is the HD 600, what genre of music could you want to listen to that has the treble so drawn back?

Glad to see so many 880s.
