nah. 400i has better thd, 30hz square wave, impulse response. the fr can just be eqd more like an hd650 if thats how you want it. and the subbass is good on the hd650 for a dynamic, but still not as good as the 400i. and dynamic subbass isnt nearly as easy to eq. if you want bass, i still say get the 400i over the 650

THD doesn't matter much regarding audibility.

Square wave is a useless metric. So is impulse response.

HD650 matches this LCD-2 at 30Hz.

Planar bass is a meme.

Nice misinformation in your post also.

>>52430194
the 400i has awful circular earcups that will aggravate the shit out of you. The 650s have earcups that are shaped like a human ear.

another question, i have a technics amp on my parents house from the 80's/ 90's with a built eq. would I be better off using it with my modi instead of using the schitt amp or do headphone amplifiers perform better for headphones
pic related, I would be taking the middle device and connecting it to the modi

>i like fr charts but everything else is worthless because it makes my productworse
i know you bought an hd650 before other things existed, but you dont need to try this hard

also nice headroom stats. of all stats that exist on the internet, theyre definitely the worst
>>
>>52430235
dude use the magni for sure
>>
>>52430235
No, a dedicated headphone amplifier is better.

As for EQing, you're better off using software like Equalizer APO. The HD518 can be equalized to have better sound quality than a stock HD650. No doubt the HD650 is better than the HD518 if you compare both in stock forms.

>>52430244
You literally have no idea what you're talking about.

Feel free to explain why headroom is the worst.
>>
>Feel free to explain why headroom is the worst.
sure, right after you explain why all the metrics that tyll takes dont mean the things that he and everyone he knows know they mean, lmao

the people in this thread are supposed to buy that all these sennheiser products are simply the best, and that anyone saying anything else just has statistics that dont mean anything
>>
>>52430312
A measurement is only worth something if it correlates to human hearing.

Also, it's a fact that the HD650 is a higher fidelity headphone than the HE-400i, preference between both is subjective of course.

>>
>>52430352
he talks about all of his metrics in videos and his posts, though hes not done with them. he explains that they do in fact matter. his only real regret about his testing thus far is that he didnt use a DF compensation on his graphs, but instead an ID, but that doesnt really change much anyway, its a rather minor detail.

but, you would already know this stuff if you knew what you were talking about. thankfully, someone named tyll does know more than you, so you can go to his website and read about how this shit works. isnt that awesome?

that is of course, unless you were going to explain why hes retarded. but we all know youre not going to do that, for one reason or the next
>>
Maybe stupid question, but how would you replicate the classic bass/treble amp knobs on an eq? what would they look like?
>>
>>52430432
are you asking how to eq with softare? you download a software eq
>>
>>52430412
I saw the very same video that you are talking about a few months ago. It was linked in the previous thread also.

Anyway, just because Tyll publishes something, doesn't mean that it's worth using to evaluate headphones. Impulse and Square Wave response have yet to be proven to correlate to human hearing. Tyll simply examines the square wave and writes up about it. The only reason the HE-400i has a better 30Hz Square wave response is because the bass response is completely flat, besides that, it's a useless metric and all the required information can be found on the frequency response graph.

Tyll can be considered retarded by many as well. He seriously believes in the amp/DAC and even cable placebos. Not sure if he actually believes in that bullshit or maybe he plays both sides to appeal to the widest audiophile audience possible.

The Philips SHP9500 is up to $94 on amazon but the Sennheiser HD 558 is $90. Which would be the better buy if I'm coming from Superlux HD 681 EVO?
>>
>>52431665
I have the 558s and the 598s and my buddy has the 518s honestly. Get the 558s they're great on any source you don't need a dac or amp really they help though. 598s sound the same almost as the 558s after a foam mod. The 598s come out to play after you get a dac and amp. I use a smsl Dac with a bravo ocean hybrid tube amp and its great. But the 558s are a good all around headphones for being open backed.

>nah. 400i has better thd
True. This matters very little though as the levels of distortion are so low in both they are most likely completely inaudible.
>30hz square wave, impulse response
Frequency response, that's all they are displaying but just in a different way.
>the fr can just be eqd more like an hd650 if thats how you want it
True. HD 650 is considerably smoother in response and thus easier to EQ.
>and the subbass is good on the hd650 for a dynamic, but still not as good as the 400i.
True, but the difference isn't that big and the very low frequencies are hard to hear, especially in music listening. HD 650 is -5dB down at 20Hz and like -2dB at 30Hz.
>and dynamic subbass isnt nearly as easy to eq.
It's very easy to EQ. A single low Q parametric filter can fix the entire sub bass range to be flat.

>>52430383
Are you implying that this isn't a case? A measurement of something that isn't going to be audible has no meaning in real world listening. This is the opposite of subjective point of view.

>>52430935
Yes. The treble and bass knobs on most amplifiers work like large shelving filters.

So, I read a post in the last thread of someone who listed the main pros and cons of the K7XX. I'll overlook the "plastic = bad" argument, since I find it pretty shallow. This guy said that K7XX have recessed mids and bad quality/price ratio. Oh boy, oh boy! Why didn't you listen to me when I told you that you don't need more bass than what the K702 already offers? Too many people in these threads think that a bass boost make AKG better, but they're either negroes or they don't know what they're saying. K702 has a clear, tight and clean sound in every frequency range, unlike the K7XX or bassier headphones, which may sound darker and mid-recessed to someone. Still, I'm here neither to judge nor to promote the K702. I'm just giving a small tip: before buying a headphone which is recommended by everyone, carry out some research by yourself in order to find out if the sound of this headphone matches your tastes.

MDR-7056, DT250 80 Ohm

Those are somewhat close at least.

so from the headphones i could find in my area and the ones that searched i stuck between this two and i need your help

which one do you suggest:

1.pic related with a really cheap amp like fiio e6

2. beyerdynamic Dt770 pro 250ohms with a great portable amp Like Fiio E12

>What do i prefer?
a musical warm sound with a good amount of fun tight bass for electronic and hip hop music and non fatiguing sound

great isolation & comfort

so what do you think?
>>
>>52433036
Thank you. Now mind explaining why that is?

>>52432934
It's not nobass at all and there is no direct corralation with headphones of closed or open design and bass response. Closed headphones can generally extend lower with less roll off but this is not always the case. 7056 is relatively bass shy, overall response tilted towards a bright signature.
>>
>>52433036
ye

>>52433056
can you not get a 80 ohms version of the 770?
>>
>>52433036
See you tomorrow faggot.
>>
>>52433088
yeah i can
also i'm considering to not buy a amp for a990x, would it make a huge diffrence ?
>>
An AKG K702 owner here. Absolutely love them, but feel like the volume could be much higher, especially when I am watching movies. Decided that an amp was necessary. Been looking around for one and want to try out the FiiO E10K DAC/AMP combo, will it be enough to drive the cans?
>>
>>52433178
then why are you considering the 250 ohm version over the 80 ohms version?
Is it cheaper where you live?
Do you already have an amp?

I'd only get it if you said yes to both of these

>>52433213
yes
>>
>>52433056
Skip that A900X. None of the closed "Hi-Fi" -lineup Audio Technicas are worthwhile. Get the DT770 80 Ohm instead of the 250 Ohm. You won't need an amplifier.

>musical warm sound
Whatever that is.

DT770s isolate fairly well and they are really comfy. Their sound signature is V-shaped, mids are recessed but not massively so.
>>
>>52433213
>will it be enough to drive the cans?
Likely but movies tend to have a really large dynamic range. If you fiddle with EQ on top of that and want to listen loud, it might not be enough. This would be a worst case scenario though. If you want to be absolutely sure, get O2+ODAC or Magni+Modi.
>>
>>52433213
Yes, it should work even on low gain. I use my DT770s 80ohm with my E10K.
>>
>>52433226
IIRC warm sound signature is slightly bassy

>>52433247
Yes but the "musical" is meaningless.

>A phone can drive them, but you wouldn't want to use these portably with such a long cable that can't be replaced.

if you want something more portable have a look at the m50x? They're also pretty bassy and come with three detachable cables, one that's pretty short. They also fold up which is a big plus for portability
>>
>>52433300
What are the options for more bassy ones, then?
>>
>>52433352
m50x, dt 770 pro
dt 770 pro are stupidly comfortable, the m50x might need a replacement pad, because they're pretty thin

then again, those might be too bassy.
There's a pretty big gap, maybe you'll do fine using an EQ to bump up the bass a bit when listening to electronic and leaving it normal when listening to other music

well, if they're cheaper and you'll buy an amp either way (even though some people say they work on phones even without an amp), I'd say go ahead & buy the dt770 250ohms
>>
>>52433386
80 or 250 ohms?

From what I've heard the Schiit Fulla is good, just really cheaply made and doesn't have any options besides volume. No bass, no lights, it's just a small sharp metal rectangle.

But I figure 80 Ohm DT 770s and a cheap AMP/DAC has to be miles better than Logitech G430 Gaymen Headshits.
>>
>>52434824
the dt 770 80 ohms is fine without an amp
cheaply made isn't really a good sign, because all an amp has to do to be good is not be cheaply made
it's not like specific amps will make shit sound better than others
If it's cheaply made, it'll probably just break fast
>>
>>52434824
From reviews, Fulla could also have issues with USB ports, so E10k is the safer choice.

The E10k seems to be in short supply right now though. It's overpriced on Amazon and out of stock at several other retailers.

Been using the Logitech G35 for the past 7 years. I also have an pair of AKG 619s. I prefer the sound of the latter a lot over the G35. Also tried my gf's HD558 and it's killing me, hurts after a while and feels too warm.

E10k is sadly out of my price range though. $200 is a little much, especially since I'm getting 80 Ohm headset for roughly $200.

PC user who ever only had his shitty headphones stuck into the PC sound port here.
I want to buy some Shure SRH440, and i want to be able to control the volume easily and directly without having to go around clicking shit and dealing with software on the PC.
Just simply reach the volume knob in half a second in front of me.

So basically i need a DAC/Amp or whatever. So since i want it, might as well get something good.

The problem i'm facing is that whenever i'm looking at lists of DAC/Amp hardware, DAC is often alone without any amp and shit. There's also pre-amp and other shit, and i'm not audioliterate to understand why this is.

Do i need an amp/pre-amp? If not, what DAC do you people suggest for me to buy up to $150?
>>
>>52435379

$0.69 CAD for every $1 USD. Every electronic has a 30% markup, plus shipping is expensive, and everything has 13% tax.

Some months ago I was recommended by some guys here to get a HD600 because they said that it was the best neutral headphone in production. I asked if an amp was necessary and many told me that my Realtek ALC 1150 could drive them very well. Fuck, I should have listened to the few ones that told me that an amp would be necessary for the HD600! The HD600 sounded total shit on my Realtek chip: the mids were recessed, the bass was lacking and had no impact at all, the treble was... Oh my fucking God, there's no adjective to qualify how muddy and soulless it sounded to me. What drove me mad the most was the fact that I had to sell my AKG K701, because everyone told me that the HD600 was an upgrade to the K701 in any way. I can't express how better the K701 sounded to me with the same setup. After some research, I decided to buy the Little Dot MK IV and, God, the sound out of the HD600 completely changed! I still don't think that my HD600 is better than the K701 I previously had, but now at least I can say that my HD600 is better than before.

Wait like combine two or more channels into a single output? You're going to need a mixer for that. I'm not aware of any such device for driving headphones. Analog mixing desks are pretty cheap.

>>52435507
You just need an amplifier with a potentiometer aka a volume knob which adjusts output voltage. Objective 2(desktop version) or Magni 2.

>>52436249
2/10 there was an attempt

>>52435251

Has limited output power, heats up a lot and can be problematic with some USB devices. Get the E10K instead of you are on a budget.
>>
>>52436316

>>52436333
I wanted an open headphone, because I definitely loved the sound of my K701. One more disappointment I got from the HD600 is its lack of spaciousness: compared to my old K701, it's narrow. If listening to a K701 sounded to me like I was in the middle of a room, now I feel like I'm closed in an armchair everytime I listen to my HD600.

Consider the K550/553 if you can get them for cheap.
They're closed, very spacious and sound great with videogames. I own a pair myself.
Some people have troubles getting them to seal properly though, so if you have a small head or long hair I would suggest looking into other things.
I've heard the Takstar pro 80 are pretty good. The Cloud HyperX is a rebrand of those, and that's highly regarded as the least shit gayming headset, so there's that.

This isn't really about headphones, but it's still audio related, so I'll ask here.
I've just plugged in an amp I haven't used for quite a while. The problem is that he volume is very low even on full volume. I've looked and one of the fuses is blown. The left channel one to be precise, but both speakers have the low volume problem, not only the left channel one. What do I do?

The same headphones were $32 from GearBest yesterday. If you wanted them, should've grabbed them then.

Also, the Superlux HD668bs aren't even that good. They're good cheap headphones from an era where cheaper headphones with quality were somewhat rare. And by all accounts you need to buy new pads for them mandatorily because the ones on them by default suck. AKG K240s go for $49 routinely on Amazon.

the most neutral headphone is whatever you think it is. just depends on the measurements you trust, and what sounds most neutral to your ears. but simply, no one is actually sure what is the most neutral. lots of research still needs to be done, and claiming anything is most neutral as if you were sure of it is just lying. most of the phones names we toss around though, are going to be very good headphones... its not like they have night and day differences. just things like "this ones too bright, and this one has too much bass." which one ends up meeting the finally scientifically concluded proper compensation curve compared to a speaker in an perfect anechoic chamber is literally anyones guess, though.

Anyway, HD650 is warmer and bassier, while the AKGs are brighter and have a more open but less bassy sound. So pick one based on your preferred sound signature.

Whoops, this post is meant for >>52440172.

>>52440172
I doubt that you can find a HD650 at that price. Below that price, both K702/K612 and the DT880 are great.

>>52440162
Both peaks and dips make headphones far from being neutral, then saying that the HD600 is the most neutral simply because it has no peaks is as stupid as saying the opposite.

Get the AKG K7XX on massdrop it would most likely be the best
>>
>>52440233
I'm not the guy saying it's the "most neutral" since I haven't looked at enough measurements, but the claim comes from the idea that HD600 matches a diffuse field target better than most other headphones.

Obviously the HD600 has several drawbacks and compromises of its own (subbass rolloff, sound could be more open and airy, etc.), but if you want to engage in pure neutrality chart autism, the HD600 is probably going to win that battle.

It's like a k702/k612 with more bass, people often complain the 702 has too little bass and thus isn't "fun" to listen to
>>
>>52440398
the hd600 is also known for some channel matching problems too. kinda scary. guess you could send them back though if it's really bad
>>
>>52440167
>the most neutral headphone is whatever you think it is
Absolutely not. You have no idea what you are talking about. Complete gibberish.

There is a clear and quite extensively researched target for neutrality. Free field for simulating anechoic chamber -like conditions where there are no reflections from the room and diffuse field for simulating a real world listening conditions with room reflections. DF is the more accurate of the two for representing real world conditions. Nobody listens anything in an anechoic chamber.

Human hearing does not differ much at all below 1kHz and individual differences from that point upwards are mostly due to resonances of our ear. While it's impossible to create a universally accurate curve for all ears, it's certainly a point of reference which gets quite close to a perceived neutrality regardless of the individual.

Headphone drivers also have resonances of their own in the high frequencies making almost all of them inaccurate in the treble even if you completely disregard the resonances caused by the ear and ear canal. Only deep fit in-ears can truly avoid this.

>>52440171
Alright, then you will actually benefit from it. They are a pretty good pair of headphones and probably the best ones with ANC.

>>52440172
Can you actually get HD 650 for under 300 bucks somewhere? Also, HD 600 would be a better option imo.

>>52440398
>sound could be more open and airy
That's just frequency response and a subjective "drawback". Sub bass roll off is real and fixable with EQ like most problems in the frequency response.

>>52440449
That's actually rather rare.

>>52440484
Amazon still has the $150 and $200 gift card packages for HD6xx, which would make the effective price similar to the competition.

Sennheiser does like to clamp down like Jews on pricing though, so it's harder to get good deals.

>>
>>52440461
people that know what theyre talking about all understand that a diffuse field target doesnt really make 100% sense for a headphone.

i guess you just dont know this, so let me tell you, mr. actual jibberish. the diffuse field is simply the best we have. no one in the field actually thinks it's the end game, for obvious reasons, that you would probably know -if- you actually knew anything about the field.

please stick to whatever you do for a living before these poor saps get taught that we have already achieved everything there is to achieve.

>>52440421
> K702
> little bass
Many people's opinions and most graphs disagree with this though. It's actually the other way round: the K7XX may have little too bass, thus being less detailed and clear in the mids. A guy in the last thread complained about his K7XX having recessed mids. I think that it is an exaggeration, but it may be due to the K7XX bass. K702 has very clear and tight bass, whcih doesn't overshadow the other frequencies.

>>52440398
> if you want to engage in pure neutrality chart autism, the HD600 is probably going to win that battle.
This depends on the source. According to IF and Headroom HD600 isn't more neutral than K702 and DT880.

>>52440461
> that's just frequency response
Open and spacious sound has nothing to do with FR, it's purely due to the headphone's mechanic/build. I can understand why you want to defend the HD600 with all your strength, but its sound isn't comparable to AKG sound in terms of spaciousness.
>>
>>52440584
People think the K702 has nobass because they are niggers in denial.
>>
>>52440567
You put words into my mouth and then "show me" how I'm wrong. That's just idiotic.

Do you have a better basis for a target curve than a response similar to a completely neutral pair of loudspeakers in a room?

I never said anything about diffuse field being the "end game"(I hate that term). It's indeed the best we have and it has existed for a few decades now with some things changed over the years to make it more accurate thanks to studies on the subject. Shape of the target response curve has not seen dramatic changes in a long time.

>>52440584
>Open and spacious sound has nothing to do with FR
Blatantly wrong.

>it's purely due to the headphone's mechanic/build
Purely? No. And this too effects the FR.

>I can understand why you want to defend the HD600
Please for one moment try to stop shitposting about products.

This is the same argument which has been going on here forever is about neutrality. You mentioned "spaciousness" as a compromise. It's not something that has been defined and it's definitely subjective to mention as a drawback. It's also vague thus making it very hard to define.

>Many people's opinions and most graphs disagree with this though.
What? Reviews for the K70x almost always bring up relative lack of bass impact and slam. You may prefer this kind of sound signature, but it is commonly acknowledged as a drawback (as opposed to the 2.4khz peak in the mids of many AKG headphones, which many people find pleasing). The guy complaining about recessed mids is the really atypical one because the K7xx measurements show that it still has those relatively forward mids. It's "recessed" only in comparison to the K701/702.

Innerfidelity doesn't use diffuse field, which was what I was discussing, while Headroom uses their own particular implementation of DF that diverges too much on the bright/trebly side compared to the curves that other sources like Rin Choi and goldenears use (which is why it makes the 2.4khz peak look like a 1db blip when it is in fact closer to 5db more than called for).

If you can't do this with the earbuds that came free with your smartphone, let alone the HD600, there's something wrong with your hearing.

Then shall I assume that according to you the FR determines the difference between a closed headphone and an open one?
> It's not something that has been defined and it's definitely subjective to mention as a drawback. It's also vague thus making it very hard to define.
Discarding a judgement only because it's objectively/scientifically unmeasurable is as wrong as considering charts/FR the only important thing about a headphone. Besides, saying that a headphone sounds more spacious/wide-sounding than an other one isn't definitely vague.

I'm not really an expert when it comes to headphones. I assumed closed would be good because they supposedly don't let outside noise in. Could you explain why open might be better? I'm open to changing my mind.
