I know it's not the first time i post about this. it's a legitimate problem though. I also hear the rattling when I merely tap my right cup while no music is playing. i don't hear rattling when I tap the left cup. so it's definitely the headphone not the source.

SR850. HD202 and HD668 has too much bass to be flat.

Regardless of your opinion, from an objective point of view, among headphones, the HD558 and HD598 are very neutral, more neutral than the K550 and K702. You are free to enjoy whatever you like but this is the objective truth.

The R500 likely has a high output impedance value on the headphone out. They are excellent for speakers but shitty as a dedicated headphone amplifier.

>>52478381
SR850 has a flatter response, HD668B has more bass. The SR850 is also more comfortable so another reason to get that in my opinion. Both headphones are prone to being a bit bright.

As a speaker amplifier R500 is excellent. Despite many beliefs, older and newer receivers all sound the same.

>>
>>52478586
Not much niggamusic, but as I said they got heavy use for years. To test the song just now, I plugged it into an O2 amp at high volumes I wouldn't want to listen to for more than ten minutes.

If anything else, the M50 has a reputation for pretty sturdy build quality, so it's likely that either something got into your driver or you just got a lemon that needs replacement.

K7xx is a specific headphone, a rebranding of the K702 Anniversary / K712 that boosted the bass a little over the regular versions. It's on Massdrop right now.

People used to refer to the AKG K7 series (K701, K702) as K7xx before the actual K7xx came out, so there's the confusion. The K701/702/Q701 have very tight bass with good extension, but they should probably not be your first choice if you're the type that likes a lot of body and impact in your bass.

I've got a chance to get a vintage Yamaha CA410 for $70. Perfect working order. Right now I have an o2+odac (not the new Rev B).

Debating if it's worth buying. I could just use the odac part of the o2+odac by running RCA out from it to the input on the 410, then run my phones through the 6.35 jack on the front and speakers with wire from the back.

I've heard great things about the sound signature from the CA410, and the additional adjustments would be nice; but, the o2+odac is so often considered best / near best in its price range. Input?

>Yeah, as I said the bass on the K7s is fine, but obviously someone looking for bass impact should consider other headphones first.
It really depends on the ear sensitivity of a person imo. According to most graphs, it doesn't look like the K702 has much bass, but like >>52479261 siad I feel that the bass on my K702 is punchy and has a lot of impact most of the times. What really amazes me every time is how I feel the impact not just from, let's say, the drums, but also from the chords and other instruments. When paired with a good recording, the K702 can make even the most subtle details come to light, even in the bass region.

>>52479857
What? Why?

>>52479366
LG Quadbeat 2/Quadbeat 3 by AKG
Zero Audio Tenore
Ostry KC06
Mee Audio A151

A very small sampling of the IEMs to try and discover, since there is like no barrier to entry in the IEM market.

>>52480245
>compare to other IEMs
The cheap IEM in general is bass heavy, and what makes it not suck is not having sharp peaks and dips besides the canal resonance.
Of course, because these are IEMs, even screwy FR doesn't matter as much with a parametric EQ. Although, the EQ interface may not be as friendly as you like, and battery life is always a concern.

Microphonics is cable noise, vibrations transited along the stiff cable. If you can loop the cable over the ear, it is usually greatly suppressed, hence why there are so many over the ear in-ears.

>ok, and what do you suggest from these iems?
I haven't tried out those IEMs. I got sick of the try/buy/sell IEM cycle.

>also, what about that site?
Plenty of /hpg/ posters froth at the mouth at the thought of subjective reviews.This is because most listeners don't know what they are hearing, and then write a review about their ignorance.

As for Joker's reviews? He's certainly better than the rabble at reviewing. Considering that he also has listened to many hundreds more IEMs than he has actually bothered to review, he might have something worth saying.
He has his preference (mild V-shape), and tries to consider things outside of it. Certainly more than what I'm willing to do. You can just ask him directly.

Not just that but unless blinded or double blinded, listening to audio gear is fundamentally biased. So many other factors than the sound itself affect what we hear and a good listener is not free of this bias.

I don't really trust my own ears much. I have to have a reference pair or two somewhere right next to me to switch to in order to make subjective impressions which hold any water. Even then I'd rather not read or talk about sound subjectively in reviews aside from a very simple overall impression. Subjective reviews are useful for things that are easily evaluated by wearing the headphone like comfort and build quality.

I don't want to touch the psychology mess that is cognitive bias, crowd mentality, and cross-modality.
I don't like to bring it up as it sounds like an uninteresting thought extinguisher, even if the psychology is an interesting research subject in itself. Yes, it is very much a real phenomenon,something that must be controlled in any scientific experiment, and an aspect of daily life, but I would like to argue that the audio sensation alone does matter in casual sighted listening. Headphone manufacturers might like to prove me wrong.

Single blind, double blind, or triple blind, it doesn't matter if the subject can't discriminate the sensory input as different in the first place.

Hey /hpg/ I need some advice for some headphones under $40. I do really enjoy rumbly bass but I do want clarity in what I'm listening to. As for fit, I prefer over and on ear, no in ear.
I've been using some Sony MDR-ZX100 headphones for the past 3 years and they still work fine, I just want some sort of upgrade. I've used the HD 201 headphones and they're clear but lack the bass that I'm looking for.
What do you guys suggest?

EQ isn't a trick that magically solves the bad sound of a headphone.

No wonder about that. But hey dude, that dip in the uppermids make Sennheiser "more neutral" and "more hi-fi" than other headphones! Lol

>>52482162
Not the guy you're replying to, but no, what you said is wrong. There's nothing more to EQ in the K702 than in the HD598 or HD600 or above. If you enjoy the sound of your headphones out of the box, you're fine. Aaaand.... K702 aren't "less neutral" thna the headphones I mentioned.

It's not true. What you need to know is the sensitivity. Impedance don't tell you whether the headphones are easy or difficult to drive.

Not sure, I haven't read through the papers yet. Might end up not using the ears at all but they could be useful for leakage measurements at least. Do you have any ideas?

I need some help regarding audio stuff.
Even though it's not about headphones, I think this is the best thread to ask it.

I have Superlux HD668B.
They don't have any form of volume control, and neither does my keyboard, which is annoying.
Can anyone recommend a cheap volume control thingy?
>>
>>52490946
The audio controls on your computer not good enough or what? Takes like 2 clicks.
>>
>>52491106
kinda annoying when you're in-game, or working
>>
>>52491141
please dont spend money on something so you can save 2 clicks and a few seconds in a video gae

They're a decent budget set of cans dude.

Pros:
- They're well built for the price
- Easy to drive
- Good isolation
- Comfortable (Again, for the price)

Cons:
- Small sound-stage
- Shitty/non-replacable cable
- Not the best ear-pads

Basically, for lounge listening, they wouldn't be a great buy (although, you can you can get them for $20 + shipping? Whilst that sounds shady, that's a fucking bargain).
For commuting, they'll be fine.

AKGoblin if you're reading this. I have summon you by just basically mentioning the K702 that I gave them away to my auntie. Remember that was like 3 week ago...
AKG is a joke, hell the Harmon corporation don't even use their own headphones because they know it's shit, they use Sennheiser for their own research(AES 139 Factors that Influence Listeners’ Preferred Bass
and Treble Balance in Headphones). And the K702 is really the poor man fix of the K701, some plebs like you accidently mistake it for the HD600.

please stop giving advice for now on and do some research from the guides: https://mega.nz/#F!3MFm1DrD!4GlU_vNtEeF148kZcQ05wA

If you are running Linux and using an DM, try tinkering around config file for the keyboard shortcuts.
If windows, a cheap USB audio control will do. Or win+d, alt+tab.

Yeah I got them cheap and I wasnt planning on them. There were no specs listed, just pictures of them mounted on a binaural microphone dummy head. Pic related.

Just reading through them.

Exposure time matters equally much. You could listen 8 hours straight at that volume without hearing damage. I often listen louder but I never wear headphones that long in one sitting.

yes but there are better options simply using the computer that avoid throwing money at something. I was saying for his own good, if he's able to afford it then go for it but speaking from the perspective of an unemployed indebted college student I wouldn't spend money on something like that ever.

That's nice to hear, careful later on. If you do it, that you make sure you have to do multiple tests with it before calibration to ensure that it is working. Even that still bothers me.

So, I can't decide between the K702 and the DT880 250 Ohm.
Do I need an amp for either?
How does the sound differ?
>>
>>52492182
yes
>>
>>52492182
Both of them might need an amp, yes. DT880 is warmer and bassier, the K702 is colder.

Please put up the guide so I can understand your preference taste.
>amp
K702 No, DT880 maybe if it's too quiet.
>sound
The K702 has treble peaks coming from 2.5khz & 9khz while the DT880 starts the minor dipping(1-2.5db) from 1khz and a drop from 5khz.

From your description I'd probably like the K702 better.

I'm just personally bored to give advice here due to the insane levels of AKG shilling recently. You can't recommend anything else in certain price points without multiple shitposters.

You mean the purchase advice questionnaire? Lemme see if I can put that together again.

>hating on the masterrace
No, I don't hate it I find annoying now. I have the K550 for like three years anyway that's the one good thing out of them.

Hell the X2 master race was born like a meme and died like one, I'm just worried that some people are gonna get shitted at for mentioning some other brand.

because philips is a meme AKG isnt its just better

It really depends on his/her gear. K702 hasn't got a very high sens after all.

I got a G35 which I've been using for at least 5 years now. It works great for gaming + voice chat, the software does the job well, but I don't like the way it sounds. I got an AKG 619, and I like the sound, but it's way to uncomfortable to even use it longer than 30 minutes. I tried the HD558 I got my gf, but it left me pretty indifferent. It's also way to uncomfortable.

Samson's SR850 or SR950?
Both are around the same price for me.
Which one is the way to go?
>>
>>52492634
K612/K702/K7XX
HD600/650/700
Hifiman 400i

we kind of really need to know your budget, because looking at your "preferred tonal balance" and past headphones I don't think you know how expensive shit can get

>>52492676
which one is cheaper? I'd go with the SR850 if you don't mind not having that much noise isolation
>>
>>52492634
AKG K7XX and fiio E10K
https://www.massdrop.com/buy/akg-k7xx-massdrop-first-edition-headphones
>>
>>52492705
>which one is cheaper?
Practically the same price
>I'd go with the SR850 if you don't mind not having that much noise isolation
I don't care for noise getting inside as long as it doesn't leak out.
>>
>>52492556

Any other suggestions?
>>
>>52492705
If you need to know a budget, then: I looked at the K812, and thought, well, that's a big too much. Let's keep it under 500 Euro for the whole set-up.
>>
>>52492757
400i and an amp/dac
If you don't need much in terms of knobs and inputs/outputs of the amp/dac, get a fiio e10k
>>
>>52492634
you might want to get the AKG K7XX while it is still on massdrop, its about to hit its drop limit and is on the last 12 hours

>>52492547
>It really depends on his/her gear. K702 hasn't got a very high sens after all.
It's not necessary to get a amp considering if you really want that loud noise and the risk to get hearing loss.
>Oh wait, are you going to amaze us by telling that Sennheiser are better?
What is Reading comprehension
>check yourself
>>52492634
DT880 cuz you want it open. But I also would suggest the K550+modmic for gaming. Pocket panties savings: DT250
>>52492705
The 400i & HD650 should be good for his preferred music. But his preferred total balance seems to be something only closed headphones would do.
>>
>>52492849
what fucking open headphones leak so much you can't understand the guy speaking into his mic?
>>
>>52479130
>would DT-990s be a good choice?

I compared them directly to the hd600, couldnt stand the treble, it's true. Listen before you buy and decide for yourself.
Same genres, I went with the hd650.
>>
>>52492634
K7XX or K702
>>
>>52492849
> hearing loss
I'm driving the K702 on the E10K and I always keep the knob at level 2-3. How do I know the dB out of my headphones?
>>
>>52492849
Don't worry, the only thing I'd need an amp for is audio quality.

>>52492827
They require me to sign up to even look at the page. Seriously?
Isn't the K7xx just a K702 with slightly boosted bass? In that case, I'd stick with the K702.
>>
>>52493078
Get a dB meter. Only way.
>>
>>52493108
K7XX is cheaper and more comfy though
>>
>>52492924
>open
Depends the isolation and how loud it is.
I hope that he doesn't get himself one of those omnidirectional microphones.

That's alright. You're mostly gaining loudness which does make a difference.
