Do fakes of ATH-M50x exist?
I want to buy myself a pair (real ones, of course), but I can only do it through Ebay (because free shipping + fine price). This is kind of risky, so I'm worried.

Item in question: http://www.ebay.com/itm/130766995267
Has anyone bought from this seller?
Would Ebay refund me if I get a fake pair?
>>
>>52686980
yes
it sounds better
>>
>>52686981
Yes there are many fakes ever since they became the number one recommend headphones besides beats. The good thing is that you won't tell the difference between the fakes and the real ones.
>>
>>52686981
yes
>>
>>52686980
please note that while that guy says it sounds better for him, it's only coloring your audio. it's not technically necessary at all, it just doesnt mean that it definitely does not sound better to him either. it would be something you would want to try yourself

Well I sure can tell the difference between fake ATH-M50 and the real ones. Was wondering if the situation is the same with M50x.

Well, the m50s usually sound like shit so I don't think it would make a difference.

and CSGO

am I cucking myself, or is this a good deal/idea?
I've spent the last 3 days googling and posting in the headphone generals and this is the best I could come up with, with my budget
AKG K612 is also a strong consideration, because many recommended it, but DT 990 seems to be a better idea here, they cost the same here.
>>
>>52687174
its just that the dt990 is a v shaped headphone. this means accentuated bass and treble. it means it's not neutral. the k612 is a very neutral headphone, with just a bit too much treble.

i would never buy the dt990 because the treble would destroy my ears, but you have to decide for yourself of course
>>
>>52687197
Why does treble destroy ears but not Bass?
>>
>>52687197
but that's a good thing for rock music isn't it? As far as I know these types of music are V-Shaped naturally
>>
>>52686972
>>52686851
What about the ATH-M50x? They're in my price range and i don't think they need an amp. Are they not good for computer use or something?

Regards >>52686769
>>
>>52687225
Oh yeah they are much like the m40x but more bassy.
I didn't recommend them because the dt770 are better when you want that niggerbass, and are max comfy.

the same reason a laser might burn you but a diffused light not so much

>>52687224
if a studio has accentuated it itself, you would not want it accentuated even more. imagine that for a minute. but no, it does not necessarily mean better. dont you want a guitar to sound like a guitar? a human to sound like a human? if you color your response, these things change. if they want to color the response themselves, thats their choice. besides, you can always eq.

>>52687225
if you can get open, get open dude. why do you want all this closed? get hd558

>>52687255
So my output sources could most probably run a 32ohm dt770 pro. Which means i should decide between:

>ATH-M50x
More portable than dt 770 pro
Better looking
More neutral

>DT 770 pro
More comfy than ATH-M50x
More bass
Less portable
>>
>>52687298
first of all, you would want to get the 80ohm version of the dt770. secondly, the m50x is not more neutral than the dt770. thirdly, if you dont need closed, you shouldnt get it...
>>
>>52687316
Do i dare ask why the 80ohm version over 32ohm. Remember i haven't got an amp or a good soundcard.

this is one of my favourites from uncle Bucket
it actually starts at ~1:40
>>
>>52687351
it measures better.
and impedance doesnt have much to do with how easily driven it is, that would be voltage sensitivity, and the 80ohm version is fine for portable
>>
>>52687174
K612 is neutral, then it's ideal for any music genre. Trust me, you don't want to listen to that music on a V-shaped headphones, unless you're ok with not hearing mids anymore. Just to let you know, mids is where most instruments and human voices are.

If you mean damaging them any more: it doesn't.

Neutral and powerful enough to drive anything pretty much. Plenty of connectivity in the back also. Sucks that it doesn't have a balanced output though.

>>52687605
QC25. Powerful noise canceling beats sound quality while on the move. Won't have to listen to music so loudly that way.
>>
>>52687655
Why not consider some more isolating in-ears like Etys?
>>
>>52687667
Most IEMs have felt discomfortable for me. My problem with IEMs is that my other ear canal is very tight. Those triple flanges would probably be excruciatingly painful for me judging by what I've heard about their fit.

From the IEMs that I have the Shure SE215CL is fairly comfortable (though not as much as the Focal Sphear) and also isolates very well, but it also sounds like ass.

Save up for a HD600. It's got liquid soundstage, super efficiency, awesome instruments' separation and it makes music sound really natural, unlike other headphones. Germany is the best country in the world, Merkel is gorgeous, Hitler was an underrated pacifist and irish employers work great.

The thing with the IE8 and 80 is that the cables are replaceable. Sure it'll cost you some 30 € more each time you break them, but it's way less than the price of new IEMs.

That being said I think the IE 80 have a bit too much mid-bass.

Well-mastered music, every genre is fine. K701 are so detailed and accurate, they can point out even the smallest flaws in a recording.

>>52689377
>The price is cool, but why does amazon suggest to buy it with FiiO E10K "OLYMPUS 2" DAC USB?
Because most people bought it along with the K702. It drives them well.
> Is it necessary?
Yes, unless your current source is powerful enough.
> Can I just connect the headphones to my smartphone?
Yes, but the headphones might have an unbalanced sound because they might be underpowered. K702 aren't super power hungry, like headfi citizens claim them to be, but they generally benefit from a little more power both in terms of loudness and of sound quality/balance.

Reminder not to respond to AKG shills, report and ignore. To identify an AKG shill, remember to look for these traits:

- is a poorfag
- is unemployed
- is a newfag
- is from Reddit
- knows absolutely nothing about audio
- has cognitive problems
- projecting in every post
- inability to form a valid argument
- considers frequency response graphs from anywhere but innerfidelity to be 'unreliable'
- calls someone a sennshill or comfygrados out of desperation
- incapable of learning anything

I will always buy Sennheiser™ because I only play music with Sennheiser™. Sennheiser also pioneers innovative new technologies like E.A.R™ and the highest quality headphones to ever grace /g/.
When I boot up foobar2000 with a brand new Sennheiser™ HD800™ with the Death Grips album, I can enjoy the music the way they where meant to be with Sennheiser™. Sennheiser™ also delivers a far more silkysmooth soundstage with its E.A.R Technology™.
Sennheiser HD 558™ is also very power efficient. A headphone is the most power hungry device in your house. Air conditioners, water heaters, lights, etc all use less power than a headphone. Which is why Sennheiser™ puts audiophiles first by ensuring that their listening experience is of the highest quality while looking out for audiophiles by giving them the most value in their electrical bill.
At this point in time, there's really no reasons to consider an AKG headphone at all. I tried once, it caused so much tin that it exploded and nearly burnt down my house. It also consumed so much power that it produced an EMP and destroyed not only the rest of my computer but my entire neighborhood.
Sennheiser™ also pioneered how useless MORE DRIVERS is with the HD™ series headphones. Years ago, everyone thought MORE DRIVERS were the future. Now, Sennheiser™ has debunked that myth entirely and increased efficiency. Now you can save thousands a year in electricity thanks to Sennheiser™ with its powerful drivers. MORE DRIVERS will never be part of Sennheiser's™ line up.
It's quite clear that OPs an AKG shill trying to convince you to settle on something less than the optimal experience with Sennheiser™. Sennheiser™ is the only real way to play music. He is probably too poor to afford the Sennheiser™ experience and can not afford to play any music.
Don't be a poor audiophile with bad headphones and a huge power bills. Play music with Sennheiser™

Fiio E10k is a good combo amp/dac for $75-80, not sure about cheaper options than that. A Magni or Objective 2 is a step up if you want just an amp.

You don't need an external DAC unless you hear noise from your hardware. For this you can get the E10k as mentioned, or if you want to spend $200-300, O2+ODAC or Magni+Modi.

The bass is really bloated. Somehow it also makes guitars and electric guitars sound unnatural. The SE215 is fine for EDM and such, but I wouldn't touch it if I was a fan of rock, metal, country etc.
>>
>>52690860
Try it with your on-board. If it doesn't get loud enough, get an amplifier. Objective 2 is good and will be enough for them and any other headphones on the market. Skip the DAC entirely.

Amplifier/DAC checklist:

-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, don't get one.

not necessarily true. high output impedance from a bad source can see improvement from a proper amp even if the volume is sufficient from the bad source, of course this depends on the headphone as well. the hd600 can really suffer if the output impedance is shitty enough.

Level with me /g/. How shitty are these headphones that I'm thinking of buying just because of muh nostalgia. It's 100$

Here are the specs: Driver Unit: 50mm Neodymium

Impedance: 32 Ohms +- 15%

Frequency 20Hz-20KHz

Sensitivity: 120dB +-3dB (at 1KHz)

Max Input Power: 3W

Input Connection: 3.5mm Plug (Removable)

of course, there's hundreds or probably thousands of people out there using otl tube amps with orthodynamics. i'm aware that they're 'purely resistive loads' but you still want a damping factor of at least 2 and these otl tube amps can have higher impedance than the headphones themselves.

On paper that all sounds fine. Doesn't tell much without measurements though. Very sensitive, so meant for portable use.
>>
>>52691170
the hiss would be DAC related but if you buy a standalone DAC you need an amp to put between it and the headphone.

>so the "losing details when not enough power" is just a meme?
yes. this meme is taken to the extreme when you see he-6 retards trying to convince everyone to plug them directly into speaker amps. it doesn't even matter what amp it is, just as long as it's a speaker amp. ironically they're picky about headphone amps though.

>>
>>52691170
Mostly, though it's not completely a meme.

Headphones require both voltage and current, so a source with insufficient power or some other limitation might make a headphone sound worse, even if it's driven loud enough, because the source is not supplying enough of one or the other.

Why.

>both voltage and current, so a source with insufficient power or some other limitation might make a headphone sound worse,
If either voltage or current is limited, so is the other. This is not about linear operation, so the statement
>even if it's driven loud enough
is invalid.
>>

that's the case for speakers, but these drivers are right next to your ears so reflections and coupling are absolutely critical.

on a speaker the room only effects everything above ~600hz mostly because of wavelengths, in the little sealed enclosure between your ear and the driver there is a fuckton of waves bouncing around everywhere, including off your ears. enclosure design is important and can get a really good sound out of a cheap driver. see the $5 driver in the etymotics, or the $15 driver used in the empiric by felib (measured by tyll recently)

Why? I thought open ones sound better, and are better for audio positioning

Try that statement again, but make more sense doing it.

frequency response in a speaker above 600hz is relatively unchanged in a room compared to an anechoic chamber?

Room yields effects from the standing waves propagating in it. These are strongest in the bass, and tend to degenerate in the mid frequencies. There are still other early cancellation modes, desk reflections and so on.

Frequency effects are strongest.
High response involves reflected sounds more, with less magnitude difference.
