Posted in last thread but it his its limit
Absolute pleb when it comes to good audio.
Requesting advice on what to get

> Budget
Around £100-£150

> Source
My PC and Phone (Note II, maybe a Note III in coming months)

> Isolation
Enough to drown out loud cars ( I Live in the city centre)

> Preferred type of Headphone
Full sized

> Preferred tonal Balance
Leaning a tad towards bass, but mostly an even tone is preferred

> Past headphones
Literal shit, some Bob Marley over ears, and a few in ears too, some Sennheisers MM30i's for a while too.

> Preferred music
Mainly rap and hip hop but also folk and punk

> Location
UK

>after 2 hours my ears hurt because squished between glasses and headphones and skull

I've had this with my crappy Sennheiser HD201 and this Sony MDR-ZX750BN.

How do I make my ears not hurt.

Contacts at 2am are idiotic and I want to watch my weeaboo as comfy as possible.
>>
>Budget

>Source

>Requirements for Isolation
None

>Preferred Type of Headphone
Full Sized

>Preferred tonal balance
Neutral, with a good bass if possible.

>Past headphones
Koss Porta Pro. My first "good" headphone, and I love them, but I was looking for something with a more detailed soundstage since I game a lot.

>Preferred Music
Rock, jazz, electronic.

>Location
Brazil

I was thinking about the Superlux 681 EVO. Any tips?
>>
Also my frame is as flat and thin as possible, only the parts which touch my ears are thicker, otherwise they'd just slice into my ears.

>>45182989
Buy larger headphones. I never had a problem with my DT770, Q701 or HD800. It might depend on your glasses too, I only tried with my one pair.
>>
> Budget
$50 to $110, (if I went higher, I would get M50x)

> Source
Xonar DGX

> Isolation
I don't want others to hear my sound, and I don't want to hear them.

> Preferred type of Headphone
Full-sized closed back

> Preferred tonal Balance
Leaning towards bass, but if it's neutral that's fine.

> Past headphones
Shit USB headset, I'm pretty sure any decent pair of headphones will have a noticeable improvement.

> Preferred music
Hip-hop, rock, electronic

> Location
US, will probably end up buying from Amazon.

Does Koss have anything in the $200-300 range worth talking about?

I'm not one for brand loyalty, but their HQ is only a few miles away and that seems nice if I'd need warranty service.

>>45183105
Not really. There's the esp/950 which occasionally goes on sale for $600-700 or so but that's about it for the high end.

Ah, too bad. I'm still hovering in the mid range, but maybe I'll keep them in mind if I get beyond that.

I'm gonna repeat this post in case anyone else here can give any other input.

I can't decide what to pick from the sub $200 list around $99 for wearing and using in public.
the Sony MDR-V6, Grado Prestige Series SR80e, Audio-Technica ATH-M40x, and NVX Audio XPT100 all look very nice, what will sound the best and be the most comfortable for extended periods when I listen to stuff like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jQok0wlkdk and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gW1WVVavw8

someone from the last thread mentioned the mdrs but someone else linked a picture of someone wearing them and their ears bleeding, I don't know what that's supposed to mean and whether or not it should turn me away.

Hey /g/

I need new headphones for muh vidya. I was using a pair of Seinheiser headphones, which worked fine, but are getting old.

I bought a pair of Seinheiser 350 SE's, but when I plugged them in, it sounded like I was playing inside a tin can. My sound card can apparently can handle the headphones.

I was considering sending them, back, but might try to "burn them in" first before doing that. If I send them back, I know the Seinheiser 558s are highly regarded, how good are they for gayming, specifically CSGO.

So are monster amps like this just mere placebo or are they actually good? Ragnarok can also drive passive bookshelves so it will serve as a very good integrated amp as well.

It's an all in one with balanced inputs and outputs and can drive bookshelf speakers and active monitors. I'm pretty sure you can scramble a setup that would do the same job for a little bit under, but it wouldn't look as clean.
>>
>>45185713
Just give it a listen. I honestly don't see a reason why you would need a new dac since the ODAC is neutral.
>>45185788
It sounds pretty neutral to me, I haven't really given it a long listen though or heard the th-02.
Bass is decent. But I hardly use them compared to my k701 or hf5.

The flagship schiit stuff is certainly different designed from the typical approaches, but does it do it better. From the objective approach, the probable answer will be no.
The only structural issue with the hd800 is the cable connector, tends to be frail. Senn charges too much for their cables, could be better to go aftermarket for that.

EQ the 5-6KHz spike downward by 3dB, nudge up the lower treble a tad, and you have something pretty damned flat.

Plus, HD800 has exceptionally flat subbass, bass, and midrange.

Run the signal through any half decent sub, the sub should filter out all the HF anyway. Can be done digitally if you want.
Head tracking will be needed to ensure that the visual match up with the audio, to strengthen the illusion of location.
Carmack doesn't mention that headphone localization needs to tailored to the listener. A mic at the ear entrance will suffice for capturing the timing and phase differences, a little more SPL equalization can be done to taste.

Why do most games have really poor headphone modes? They either have a really poor hrtf or just reduce the stereo width to make it more comfortable.

>Xiaomi Pistons V2.1 silver

How can anyone like these is beyond me.
They're 22$, they're neatly packed, they're nice, but.

- Clip doesn't serve a purpose, who the fuck clips their earbud cable
- METAL THINGY MAKES MY EARS HURT AND SCRATCHES THEM, ALSO NOT COMFY AT ALL
- Eartips are generic, okay, but the small is too small, medium too big, don't even know what they were trying with the 3fold L one.
- Cable is very nice, but I don't get the carrying case and how to fit your earbuds in it at all, nice thing to play around with I guess, can see the earbuds get damaged though.


Ended up selling them for 50% more than I purchased them for.

I get the idea totally, but they just don't fit for me at all, probably a period of getting used to them needed, but I really don't get all the people shilling this.

I mean the 8 dollar HJE120 Panasonics (bestseller on Amazon for years now) blow these out of the water when it comes to ergonomics and just working, and durability. No stupid gimmicks, premium packaging, you get them and you use them until they die (forever basically).

I don't get anyone who spends money on IEM's in general, all it takes is one fucker to pull the cable on the side and it's up for repair.

Fuck that.

I'm a VR enthusiast and I have to say that headphone audio within a virtual reality environment or system, like the Oculus Rift, will be quite good as far as today's standards go. I remember trying out a demo of the sound software Oculus VR purchased and it was pretty good at simulating binaural sound. If you add an external subwoofer, then even better. However I guess that if you had to use speakers, it might be an option to fix the orientation of the player's in-game ears.

>>45194344
as far as I know they're basically identical to the 668b besides the headband. so if you can deal with eqing the highs down some, they're a great headphone for acoustic music and/or gaming.
>>
>>45195524
I would say v6, but since you game I would get the 681 evo or the 668b. v6 has a very narrow soundstage, not good for gaming. 681evo is a great all-rounder, but the bass is a bit boomy and the soundstage isn't as wide as the 668b. the 668b is amazing for classical, not so much for "modern" music, you don't get the thumping bass like with the other two (still powerful tough), but it is very detailed and has a very wide soundstage. the 668b is very open though so sound leak-isolation will be an issue.
you should also look at the xpt 100, m40x, and the k240. never tried those though.
