Do you mean in ear or ipod style buds? So far I haven't heard any good earbuds because they never seal good enough to get any bass

If in ear, these sounds pretty decent for their price.

just a good one with good design too, are earpods ok?

They'll do in a pinch but earbuds in general sound too thin for me. Quality-wise, earpods are around skullcandy/beats level

I've got those too. Find myself reaching for the 598 a lot more since I can't be bothered to get a headphone amp. The 650s are very greedy.

so nice, that cord aswell OH YESH
>>
>>61564989

They're good. I think they are positioned really well in that they're not too heavy to drive without a dedicated amp, but can certainly benefit from them if one wants to upgrade. They are decently prices and their sound is good enough that only someone who's really into that kind of stuff is going to notice much improvement by shelling out more. When they launched they were sort of a no-contest kind of choice for someone who wants something good, that they can use straight away and not pay outrageous amounts of money.

Ok /mu/. About a week ago was the day I've been alive for 23 years. To celebrate this, it's justified to get a present. One option is a pair of headphones.

Now I need your help to decide on the model.

Requirements:
-Made to last. I've broken at least a dozen of headphones and I'm tired of getting new ones, so these have to be built in a way that I can take them to the grave with me.
-Must have a detachable cord.
-Must work in wet conditions as well as at temperatures from -40 to +40 Celsius.
-Supra-aural design with closed back and at least some (passive) noise isolation.
-Comfortable enough for extended periods of listening.
-Modest appearance.
-Bonus points if manufactured in a civilized country.
-And the most important thing: neutral frequency response for a wide variety of music.

My budget is 200 euros plus minus something. Absolute maximum is 300 euros.
>>
>>61567724
They're not, but they're the most impressive thing I have headphone wise. I have others that I feel safer with throwing around and are smaller.

>>61567783
If you're going for portability over everything , definitely go for the sonys. I can't guaranty anything though. The bass on the sennys is not lacking, but its not noticeably louder then the mids or treble. The sounds are very balanced on these you can here every instrument on a track depending on the original sound file. If you feel it needs more bass, it wouldn't be hard to eu in.
>>
>>61567454
>Thinking of getting a pair of these because they're portable

oh fuck off most headphones are "portable." you're already going to look like an autist wearing over/on ear headphones in public so just get something that's good.

I've been using apple earpods for about 3 month, because my other kinda nice headphones broke. recently I purchased some ath m50s and.. they sound really shallow, very little of low end. Is this just because the apple buds have too much bass and I have gotten used to it, and I just need to "break in" the m50?
The m50s sound clearer on the high end, most definitely, but when I'm wearing them on the train I can barely hear bass, even when I put bass booster on my phone.

I guess i am a so-called basshead now? because, while other people say m50s have deep bass, its just not satisfying for me.

or maybe they are just broken, or fake. hmm
>>
>>61570373
If you're using it on the train like I do it could be because the train emits slight vibrations when it is on the track and moving and those vibrations can clash with the bass of your headphones.
>>
>>61570304
Too much bass?

>>61570561
No mids or highs. Felt like a listening through a tube

That fact they were on sale when I bought them.

I don't know the difference between them and the k 701/702

I want to buy a pair of Hifiman headphones next though.
>>
>>61565949
My first pair lasted two years of abuse and the cord near the jack got all bent out of place. I bought another pair a week later. Some people say they're too bright, but I use them to produce just fine and the college radio uses them.
>>
>>61568066
These are create-a-monopoly desired specs, best of luck finding something.
>>
>>61571011
As long they wouldn't break... My last pair was Beyerdynamic DTX 501 p and I think the freezing temperatures of Finland caused them to stop working.

So do I. They're only two years old and they're actually falling apart in my hands. I picked them up from my desk a few days ago and two plastic bits fell off. It's not like I've been rough on them either. Also I'm not as impressed with their sound as everyone else seems to be.

I think I might have gotten fakes.
>>
Need advice /mu/.

Lost my in-ears few days ago, they were my main headphones as I mostly use headphones while outside, rarely indoors. However I was considering getting over-ear headphones now, because in-ears can be harmful in the long run. Thought about buying the m50x because they were getting so much praise.
>inb4 meme headphones
My only concern is that they are not very adequate for outdoor listening. Are my concerns justified or is there no problem at all with using over ears on the go?

I have headphones too. Do you guys wear these on your daily commute to any place? In the subway? In a train/bus?

I have slightly big headphones like this which is why I feel conscious about coming across as stupid wearing these big clunky headphones whereas everyone wears earphones/buds.

Tell me if this is something I should worry about? I don't feel like spending extra for a pair of earphones just for commute :/

Online of course but I don't have a credit card or any of the other usual payment methods, so foreign webstores are always a nuisance. Here in Finland everything can be paid using online banking but that's not the case in many other countries. For example if I order musical equipment from Thomann, some person working there has to send me a bill manually, so that I can pay my order.
