>/g/ wiki headphone FAQ:
Recommend me a good microphone to do voiceovers and whatnot. Been looking at a AT2020. I'll be plugging it into a Steinberg UR22 Mk II. I want a desk stand for it too. The USB AT2020 comes with a nice little tripod but can't find it separate anywhere and it's not included in the standard passive AT2020 version. Any other worthwhile options or recommendations of how to mount the mic?
I fit into that category. What makes the 2035 better for male voice? I'll be fiddling around with DSP on my computer's end anyway so extended and preferably linear FR with little self noise as possible is what I want.
K612 is slightly more neutral in the sub-bass region, but K702 has a detachable cable. They both might need an amp (K612 is slightly less sensitive) but they're not as power-hungry as most "audiophiles" say. They're both great headphones.
Are these both legit? I'm going to get a Piston 3 and an A151
$200-300 without AMP(flexible)
>Preferred type of headphone
>Open or closed
I'm probably gonna be wearing them for more than 3 hours per day, so I need comfy

I have no experience with Pistons directly, so you might want to do due diligence and Google for reputable sellers since fakes may be a concern.
They're definitely the best bang for buck though.
Found this on Headfi.
I just feel like they wouldn't be able to call themselves Xiaomi on Amazon if they weren't legit.
X2 probably? There's not too many options with that price and requirements. HD6xx have a ton of impedance around 100Hz so you need an amp for better bass, the K7 series are not bassy, and DT880-32 is not worth getting and the high impedance versions need an amp obviously.
400i has very flat bass, so not sure if it would please a basshead and you would have to hope for a sale at $300 again.
>We are a authorised reseller xiaomi in Canada, 100% original genuine product of xiaomi. Long time warranty! Quick delivery. Gift box provided.
why wouldn't they?
youth edition a shit btw
You can't trust that.
The way Amazon works is that vendors for a product share the same product page, so whoever created that page first wrote the description when it may not apply to every seller.
Literally asking for an X2. They are great btw. Be warned that the ear pads might come glued, but they have been working on this manufacturing issue for weeks now so it should be a slim chance.
also I'm saying there's a good chance they are fakes
this is just proof they're not officially xiaomi, just kids who say they're "an official reseller"
it just has a better fr at lower bass levels. on top of that it's more neutral as well. its just all around better, but its not THAT large of a difference. but neither is the price desu, you decide
Well, I have a little firsthand experience uploading products on Amazon, and I did have to make duplicate pages when some idiot put in stuff in the description that was specific to them.
Amazon is kind of sloppy aside from pages for big, popular products that they sell themselves.
I guess if it's sold by Amazon it must be real? This page doesn't even show a seller and is just listed as sold by Amazon.com.ca corp or some shit.
>going through facebook feed
>article about Xiaomi's new phone
>only mentions "battery lasts twice as long as the iphone and it's only 90€"
USUALLY when it's SOLD (not just shipped) by amazon it's real yeah
consider e10 instead of that if you have 50$ tho
Why would there be fakes for the A151? The Pistons are both made in China and have a much bigger reputation, so obviously a bunch of fakes pop up for those.
Keep in mind that the ear fit on A151 can be finicky and needs the right tips for a seal, or you get no bass.
I apologize for the miscommunication. I meant I'd be willing to spend $300 just on the headphones. I need an amp as well and I'll be willing to spend $200 on an amp. I should have made that more clear in my first post.
Then the HD650 would probably be the best choice for a bassy headphone in that range.
Amazon is still selling a $200 gift card package with the HD650 for $500, and you could use the gift card to pick up a Magni 2 or something.
>have a ton of impedance around 100Hz so you need an amp for better bass
Not how that works.
Sinegen is often discussed, not sure if it is automated. I don''t use it
I generate files and listen to them., with tickers to keep track frequency.
Today, I got the Skullcandy Crusher.
These are great headphones because of the low price and the bass sensation slider.
I like them a lot.
It's "mechanical vibration".
Search "Sensation55 Driver"
How does I read measurements?
(fuck that shit, the Crusher is great, bro)
At the transducer's resonant frequency(where impedance spikes) you need less power to play loud. Around that area the headphones will play the loudest if the Zout is high relative to the headphone's nominal impedance and it's also the point where you get the best electrical damping.
>Some people were sayhing they aren't really that different. Is that true?
>you need less power to play loud
Yeah, which is why I thought people tend to complain about boomy and uncontrolled bass for Sennheisers if you have the wrong source for them, since 598/600/650 all have that impedance spike.
>bass sensation slider
>is it just an EQ?
Tactile transducer. It's a bass shaker thing.
>I would think 500 ohm at 100 Hz would not play well unamped.
That would be incorrect. The impedance hump is the easiest part to power, with phase angle at zero and minimized current draw.
Highest impedance at frequency means that the driver is particularly given to motion at that frequency, its resonant frequency. The impedance hump is from the current generated in opposition to the driver motion in a magnetic field, and impedance in defined as opposition to input current into the load(driver).
>it's also the point where you get the best electrical damping
Also not how that works. Voltage division yes, but not the damping nonsense.
Ive narrowed it down to buying both the
>Koss PortaPro and 10' extension cable $32
>AD500x and new pads. $100
Am I making a huge mistake?
I'm going to use it for games and nothing else. Mostly microphone.
Pick one for me /hpg/.
Another retailer i can buy from.
Will order today after deciding which one.
82€ is a bit pricey, but if nobody gives me a cheaper option, i can go with these.
I don't see any m40x/7506.
I can only buy from the list.
>I don't see any m40x/7506.
>I can only buy from the list.
get cloud hyperx then
>82€ is a bit pricey, but if nobody gives me a cheaper option, i can go with these.
well you can buy any of the cheaper ones if you want absolutely trash audio & mic quality, but you might aswell just play without a headset then
>don't think just because it's a big name brand that they'll be good
yeah i know, i'm just clueless about that range
all 3 you mentioned are unavailable in my country. how about akg, i'm seeing some models around $50, could they be worth it?
https://www.skroutz.gr/c/1860/Over_Ear.html?order_by=pricevat&order_dir=asc&page=1 here's the site i'm buying from if you want to help.
Sinegen itself is fine but gets hosted by shady sites.
You can run sweeps online here:
Or download generated files from here:
I can make some files later, but not right now.
guessing .gr is greece?
does amazon.co.uk or amazon.de not deliver to greece?
If you can scrable some money together, the K240s are also a good pair of headphones and I think they should be slightly below 7506/m40x
could you post a review on them once you try them out? People have been asking how they are. Ohms don't really determine if they need an amp
Thanks. I never tried ordering from amazon, but yes they do ship to Greece.
I'm considering the K240, do you know if they need an amp and if they are comfortable? I sometimes have problems with my glasses when wearing headphones.
if amazon is an option then the superlux headphones are back into the game again
If you have glasses, I'm not sure if the m40x is a good idea
if the k240s aren't that comfortable you could always get velour pads for them
holy fuck that graph looks awful
I expected them to just try to make a quick buck off the marshall brand name
Guys i'm planning on buying a UR22MkII along side the AKG 612 Pro
Good combo or does anyone recommend something else?
probably only to the person sitting next to you
I have the SR850 which is a HD681 clone, from 40-50cm away I can't hear anything being leaked at a reasonable volume even in silent surroundings, so you should be fine on public transport
see >>52387058 plus I can use the extra input line to connect a console
Since headphone impedance is such a tricky thing, as are other factors such as the important amp, I wanted to knw if the UR22MkII is a good DAC/Amp to connect a AKG K612 Pro
got a casio ctk 3200 from the parents for Christmas, looking for a decent set of headphones to let me enjoy playing it without bothering the neighbors
Will also be wanting to use this with my PC but that's about it. As long as they're mildly durable and won't fall apart in the next few years I'll probably enjoy them.
(for reference, the most my family has delved into headphones was a set of noice cancelling bose QC2s, and I'm fairly certain those are overpriced for what they are)
Ordered. I'm getting them in 2 days.
I hope you guys are right.
Compared to these, i'm sure they're going to be better.
Had these for 3 years now, but mic stopped working.
>tfw ITS SO COLD IN THE D HOW DA FUCK DO WE POST TO KEEP PEACE?
>tfw you pullin up to mconalds and know to check to make sure your window can roll down
>tfw it doesnt and you have to park and go inside
Okay. Legit question reading up on those. They have a built-in amp. The built-in amp runs off of a AA battery.
Bluetooth headphones exist. Bluetooth headphones have rechargeable batteries. Rechargable batteries are cheap as shit. Why does the Crusher's built-in amp use AAs?
£250, including dac/amp in needed.
>Preferred type of headphone
>Open or closed
>Preferred tonal balance
Flat, maybe slightly bassy
Rap, pop & games (CS:GO)
Feel free to ask any questions.
I was originally looking for open headphones because of the larger soundstage, but my condenser microphone seems to pickup sound leakage from my current open headphones.
And it seems that the NAD HP50's have a fairly wide soundstage anyway.
Sennheiser Game zero or PC 363D? They're both $200 and the only headsets that don't hurt my head due to my glasses. Alternative options are also appreciated.
Thinking of getting open headphones but my computer is loud as fuck. It needs new cpu fans and case fans and a new case which will be a lot of work and $. When I listen to closed headphones I dont hear any of this. What do?
why would it be? i mean i realize why it doesnt seem like it would be good (at all), but lol, i dont run audeze
The previous version of the Crusher was the Skullcrusher which also used an AA battery.
Maybe Skullcandy played it safe and didn't want to use a different way for a battery-powered headphones.
I've got $150 allocated to spend on some headphones, spending less does not bother me as long as it works for what I need.
Extreme sound isolation and comfort, I play drums and need to be able to hear a metronome/click track through my headphones while not ruining my ears with cymbal crashes.
I have HD 558s for music and have tried v-moda lp2s as well, both are very nice. I'm not sure how isolating the lp2s are as I only had them for a day and never drummed with them.
We've got Maki in headphone generals, desktop generals, now we need daily programming threads and friendly linux threads.
And that's not counting the random Maki thread that pops up almost everyday.
Have another for more headphone generals.
Thought this would be the best place to ask, I just bought a pair of Sony MDR 7506s, only problem is, when I move/tilt them I can hear something small rolling/moving inside them. I don't notice anything wrong sound wise but I don't want to wait for fucking ages to send these back to get a replacement, it's really fucking annoying because if the volume isn't up high and I tilt my head I hear what sounds like a tiny ball bearing or something rolling around inside the driver/cup area, but since it's against my ear it's very annoying.
Anyone know what it is and is it an indication something is damaged inside?
Been looking at either DT 880's or maybe some 990's for the near future. Opinions?
Are there still good cheap desk mics or are clip-on the newest thing if you're on a low budget?
My piece of shit headset that I used as a microphone for the last 8 years or so died on me and I need a replacement for around $20.
They're fine, most people just stick with the Olives.
Westone Star or Comply T100/Premium as possible alternatives.
Preference is to DT 880, since it doesn't have quite the substantial treble that makes the 990 so much more...difficult to tolerate.
DT 880 isn't exactly treble shy either, but 990 is more likely to go past most tolerance range here.
990 has a boosted midbass giving it a V-shaped sound profile.
Those xpt100s seem good for the price but everyone recommends in ear monitors. I know this is a headphone general, but does anyone know anything about in ears for drumming? Obviously I can use my other headphones for normal music listening, these will be a 1 purpose thing anyway, noise cancelling is what I need.
>still using thick tangling cables like a pleb
For isolation, in ears under headphones/earmuffs are the ultimate solution. Never tried drumming specifically.
Shure and Etymotic are the go to for isolation. The tips are a decent factor in their high isolation though.
Is that one of those Linum cables?
So... Which should i get.
I'm considering :
>Audiotechnica M50x - Green limited edition
>AKG K 553 Pro
Upgrading from Rocknation Avaitors. Pic related.
I own a pair of K550's and Sennheiser HD 7 DJ so I'm pretty much in the same situation.
My K550's were my main headphones for about a year. They are great headphones, very spacious and sound great, however they're extremely bulky to lug around outside your house. Only downside is they lack removable cable.
If you want inside headphones get the K553, if you're looking for something to take on the go consider the M50x or another small form factor headphones with detachable cable.
desktop, laptop, phone
>Preferred type of headphone
>Open or closed
>Preferred tonal balance
neutral, but flexible
Grado SR60i only thing of note
how about these bad boys? 40 bucks, not bad, read a few drummer's reviews, they were pretty positive.
not sure how to get these setup properly, anyone know anything about using in ears for gigs/band practice?
well. i plan on taking them everywhere I go. lighter and detachable cable will be a plus, since i'll probably ruin the cable just like all my other headphones.
M50's look nicer too.
Why would you say they're an overpriced meme? this is the first knock on them I have heard around here.
They used to be way cheaper but are almost the same price as the K553 pro. When reddit and every tech reviewer nuthugged the m50 the price when way up, so sound quality wise they are no match for the K553 pro
Nah, quality doesn't really matter, I just need it for gaming communication. A decent loudness from a comfortable position would be the thing I'd like.
Are you talking about something like pic related or some clip-on solution?
>these setup properly
Besides inserting into ears? Nothing else to it, just pick a tips for comfort and isolation.
>Does it matter if I spend more?I am looking at the Fiio E6, is this good?
-Is it too quiet?
-Is the output impedance too high (fixable by equalization)?
-Is there noise/EMI or hiss to it?
-Does it sound distorted as you start to crank up the volume?
If the answer is no, then that is your answer.
>Or is it just a few mundane features?
Basically, but some people may not think them mundane.
Also, does an amp really preserve clarity? I am willing to purchase one but most people seem so stubborn and ignorant when they talk about them so I can't decide if it's even necessary at all.
Before you guys say anything, I got these as a gift in Dec 2013, But they snapped two months later due to being shit, They are still my portable use headphones to this day, What do you guys recommend as a replacement portable headphone as these things no longer have clamping pressure and sound worse than my desktop's Sennheiser HD202.
Added some stuff to my M50x's to make them comfier when I'm in Premiere and Logic for six hours at a time. The velour pads are fantastic and I really like the feel of the wool cover on my head rather than the pleather.
Also I got this cool aluminum stand that matches my PC case for like $15 so it's been a fun week
>does an amp really preserve clarity?
A well built audio amp does. The purpose of an audio amp is to only affect signal level, and you can do this well enough with a headphone load for not too much cost.
The checklist from before is a summary of how the audio quality can be affected.
Hifiman isn't known for their electronics competence.
What's a DAC supposed to do? I don't get it.
I've seen multiple pages that says "it turns 1s and 0s into analog signals" but isn't that what computers do already? They take ~350 to 758 thousand 1s or 0s per second to measure the amplitude and then turns that into a signal that it sends to speakers/headphones/whatever. I get that it's imperfect and can distort audio, but how does converting a distorted audio feed into something else somehow make it better?
Is it just another meme like gentoo?
So am I like, the only one who has enjoys the X2 anymore?
Nah, I'm still enjoying mine.
what cables are those?
Aw c'mon fellas! Let me enjoy my stuff free of ridicule!
Yeah but there's always that hidden gem that "sucks s little less".
I tried watching some reviews but it really was just shilling.
Aldo doesn't have to be a headset I suppose, some wireless headphones and a desk Mic would be fine.
How are the DT880 Black Editions?
I used shitty gaming headsets for a decade till I finally decided to go with an AKG K702 and modmic along with a Schiit Magni/Modi. Best investment I'v made in my PC yet. Dramatic results compared to gaming headsets.
I've used all sorts of headsets from cheapo Fatality edition ones to those pricey Razor ones. They're just varying shades of shit.
Who would pay premium for a brand that isn't known for microphones?
If you want to spend big bucks on a high-end product at least choose a brand with some heft behind it and a product with good reviews.
It's the same headphone aside from the mod/resonator thing. Who knows if(or when) someone manages to design a mod which is more effective than what Sennheiser made for the HD 800S at reducing the 6kHz peak. EQ does the same thing but more effectively.
Well as you probably are going to be using the mic with your computer, you need a microphone preamp and an ADC with a suitable connection for your PC(like USB). Interfaces generally have these built in and they are fairly affordable. You can of course use the ADC line in on your motherboard if you just have a preamp but most Integrated line in jacks are terrible. Up to you.
There's no reason to waste money on Mr. Speakers when Fostex has already updated their T50rp line and that costs nearly half the price. Unless you want to waste money on an Ether.
M40X is around $139, thanks, M50X is around $200
Can't even find it.

Out of the K240, M40X, MDR7506, which should I get, and why?
Man I'm completely uneducated on audio equipment and been looking to get my first non bargain bin set of headphones and Aussie prices just get me down.
Theres a lot more pressure to not fuck up when shit is this expensive.
Just wanted to say that my Fidelio X2 is legitimately one of the worst-sounding headphones I've listened to, ever.
> the midrange is recessed to ridiculous levels. listening to something with vocals? good luck. like, there's V-shaped and then there's this.
> it's veiled. holy shit is it veiled. there is so little discernible detail in most of the frequency range. it feels like I have hearing damage
> the soundstage that reviews raved about is really quite small compared to other open headphones
I wanted to like these because they're good looking, well built and comfortable.
but... please don't buy this memephone.
Headphone pleb here, got Sennheiser Momentum v1 for about $90, was it a good deal?
Love them so far, though they could get a bit uncomfortable after a long period of use. The midrange also seems a tad too weak.
>there are always car alarms that are so loud
in what nigger hood do you live
get the m40x or 7506 then, they isolate more
It could be that the lack of sound isolation is due to my velour pads but I doubt it
they're both really good.
I think 7506 has a slight edge, but I'm not sure
I've heard it being said often that the m40x has a lot of clamp, but I occasionally hear that about 7506 too. So it might just be shitposting
We're not here to decide for you, do your own research now that you got some good options, you shouldn't be disappointed no matter which of the two you buy
>What's a DAC supposed to do? I don't get it.
Converts a digital signal("0s and 1s") into an analog one. Signal goes from digital samples into a sine wave.
>but isn't that what computers do already?
Any PC has at least one DAC used for audio signals so yes, computers do this already since they already have a DAC built onto the motherboard.
>I get that it's imperfect and can distort audio, but how does converting a distorted audio feed into something else somehow make it better?
A discrete DAC just takes the digital signal(samples) in and then converts them into a sine wave just like the DAC on your motherboard does. You are not sending the "distorted" sine wave from your computer's integrated DAC to an external DAC, that would not be even possible. An external DAC bypasses the DAC in your PC and they ideally have lower distortion.
>Is it just another meme like gentoo?
Meme is meaningless word on /g/ so my answer is no. There are situations where you should be getting an external DAC. Mostly in situations where you are hearing audible hiss, interference or any unwanted noise from the output. Some discrete DACs also have more features than your motherboard has.
Browsing this thread makes the K553 Pro look like the sort of headphones I want to go with but holy fuck I dont understand why some of these companies are so strict on who they sell their products to.
I can't find a single online store anywhere that will ship them to Australia.
X2 was designed by Philips engineers with the sole purpose of entertaining their customers, then it's not uncommon to find its sound enjoyable and funny. Still, the X2 are far from being accurate.
It sounds like you don't like the sound signature of the X2. I had your same impressions on the X2, then I decided to buy the AKG K702, which is more neutral, more accurate and more detailed. I love the K702 now, infact I'll send my X2 back to Amazon soon and ask for refund. I suggest you to try a mote neutral headphone and see if you like it more.
> defective pair.
This only affects the build quality of the X2 though. Many people (me included) used to think that the bad sound out of their X2 was also due to QC issues, but at the end I realized that this is just how X2 sounds. Hearing perception drastically change from person to person. Most people don't mind an overly enhanced midbass and recessed mids, others do.
>Just heard reports of certain X2s sounding much worse than others.
Unless they own two X2 and they can compare their sound, they'll never know. Hearing is extremely subjective: what sounds good to me may sound bad to you and vice versa.
I had the exact same impressions. Got my money back from Amazon.
My pair also had glued pads, pads leaking dye and the metallic finish on the edges chipping/flaking off after 2 weeks. Disgusting.
X2 production was/is managed by two different manufacturers, WOOX and Gibson. I have heard reports of audible differences from people who have had pairs from both manufacturers, with the consensus being the WOOX pairs were generally better.
I have a pair of X2 made by WOOX, and yet my judgement on them isn't different from what >>52397295 says. People on reddit also said that only Gibson's pairs had glued earpads, but this is also false, because my pair has glued earpads too. From what I saw, this thing is just random.
Sorry, I wasn't trying to imply that there were clear cut differences between the two, just that inconsistencies would be explained by the change in manufacturer.
I don't think it's a sound signature thing at all, because people should already have an idea of what to expect just by listening to an experienced reviewer describe them.
Is there a problem with getting the 80ohms version compared to the other two versions?
I've never owned a decent pair of headphones in my life and I have no idea what any of this means.
> people should already have an idea of what to expect just by listening to an experienced reviewer describe them.
Zeos dedicated the biggest part of his video on the X2 to the illustration of its physical structure. When he was asked to tell a bit more about its sound, he simply used some audiophiles expressions ("crispy highs, wide soundstage, tight bass"), which, in my opinion, don't help much to build an idea over the sound of a headphone. Again, the best judge of the sound of a headphone is one's ears, at least when measurements are missing.
Tyll provided measurements for the X2, but he himself admitted that they are much worse than how the X2 sounds to his ears (a really subjective statement). It is as if he was saying: "yeah I know, the X2 has shit measurements, but trust me, they sound ok to me!". Some people on reddit also said that Tyll has dealings with Philips; I didn't have the chance to confirm the validity of this assumption, but I wouldn't trust his opinion as a precaution. Also he's biased in favour of bassy/bass-enhancing heapdhones. Have you ever wondered why he put the HE400S and the X2 in his Hall of Fame, while leaving the AKG K7-- and the Beyer DT880 out? If you look at his measurements, both the Beyer and the AKG K702 don't measure worse thand the HD600. He said that he left the K702 out, because its bass isn't as good as HD650.
Tyll picked the HD600 over the more bassy HD650 though, and the 400s is one of the few planars with bass roll-off (which is one of the reasons the 400s doesn't get much recommended elsewhere). So it's not as simple as that/
But yes, some of his picks are a little strange.
If you got them for under $120 it's not awful. You can even get the velour pads on Massdrop right now and reduce the bass while greatly increasing comfort, addressing the two main concerns of M50x.
But I hope you didn't actually pay $160 for them.
I prefer written reviews. You don't need a popular YouTube channel or following to be able to get your point across. I personally look at written reviews across as many websites as I can, including user reviews on head-fi, and try to go through the reviewers background to see their opinions on other headphones that I have heard as well as their musical taste if it's not stated explicitly in the review.
People like Tyll, Lance, Zeos lack any sort of real critique and in the particular case of Zeos he is sent most of the stuff he reviews by people who bought the product but wanted him to review it first, so it's understandable why he would go easy. Maybe he is honestly an easy to please manchild, who knows. Every time I watch a new one of his reviews he says it's the best thing ever and you shouldn't buy anything else even though he has said that about multiple products in the past.
Tyll gained his popularity by providing measurements on a wide variety of headphones at a time where Changstar was dying/dead.
Yeah, Tyll's supposed bias towards bassy headphones is just a suspicion of mine, I didn't want to sound like I grasped everything right.
At the end, I think that relying on a headphone's reviewer (be he experienced or not) is risky. The best thing would be to try out as many headphones as one can. Amazon's return policies allow this quite well. Again, even the HD600, which is higly praised by almost any reviewer, might sound bad to someone's ears. When it comes to headphones (and, generally speaking, to hearing) personal taste is the only thing that counts.
I think it's more like Tyll is treble-sensitive (as in that meme video of him wincing at Ultrasones), so he would obviously not like the K7 series and DT880s as much due to their treble peaks.
Very narrow soundstage. Sound is far from as detailed and clear as people make it out to be. Uncomfortable when worn for longer than ~2hours, which I guess could be fixed by the velour pads.
Well, relatively. If I recall, Tyll likes all three of the Big 3 but his issue with the K7s was that they sound slightly "hard" and treble-emphasized to him. In the measurements, what stands out is that 2.4khz peak in the mids.
Yeah, unfortunately the M50s have a closed-in and slightly metallic sound.
Best headphones for gaming? Prefer open back. Have been getting into light streaming lately. Good microphone recommendations?
Was looking at AD900x's. No clue about microphones though. Headphone budget is 150ish and microphone budget is unknown. I don't know what they really go for.
Prefer bassy for the head phones. I listen to dubstep and rap mainly for the beats.
AD900X is audio technica not sennheiser.
Modmic was my preferred choice since Xbox one compatibility.
Why only 45$ headphones? I know price doesn't directly relate to quality but are those really the best I can get in my price range? Keep in mind 150 budget is headphone allocated. That's not my budget for mic.
>AD900X is audio technica not sennheiser.
I know it ofc, I was just giving you a tip
> Why only 45$ headphones?
Because HD681 EVO are the first bassy headphones that are suitable to gaming that come into my mind for your budget
Is the overall quality good? I've used high end headphones and I'd be more disappointed buying 45$ headphones that don't sound good than spending 150$ on a pair that sounds only slightly better than the 45$ pair.
> I've used high end headphones
> I'd be more disappointed buying 45$ headphones that don't sound good than spending 150$ on a pair that sounds only slightly better than the 45$ pair.
oh well, headphones like the AKG K612 or even the Sennheiser HD558 cost less than 150$ and they surely sound better than the Superlux, but they're not bassy.
I don't need my ears to rumble off. But I'd definitely like to hear some of the lower Spectrum sounds with good clarity. Nice sharp highs and nice humming lows. Don't need to roar.
A couple different sets I've demo'd at stores and friends houses. Most notably the DT990's that my younger brother got for early Christmas.
