Audiotechnica ADH-PDG1, got them on advice from an audiophile friend for a quality pair of open back cans that arent like 300 bucks.
Nice sound and mic clarity, sits comfy on your head and being able to hear most stuff going on around me is mostly good (for example my phone alerts or people talking)
As an added bonus, it definitely sounds less 'artificial' with an open back and loud sounds arent as harsh

Depends entirely on how much you want to spend buddy. Also they're not god awful, just not the best. No headphone/brand is "master race", that's ridiculous. If you're looking to get into serious sound without going into summit fi, look into AKG Q701/K701/K7XX, HD600s/650s, Philips X2s, Beyerdyanamic DT880s, Audio Technica ATH-2000x. For closed back Audio Technica MSR7s, or NAD Viso HP50s. All the headphones I've listed are around $300, which is considered the best mid point to get close to top of the line sound without any real drawbacks. I would definitelllly avoid the HD598s, I don't think they're worth anywhere near the price.

Oh also, with all the headphones I recommended you're going to really want to get an amp to get the most out of them. The Schiit Magni and JDS Labs O2 amp are going to get you a long way for around $100.
>>
>>685277458
Currently using Vulcans, not the best sound but I got them for lightweight build, neautral sound and they're pretty robust.

I got a set of HifiMan HE 350's coming, shit's gonna be good
>>
>>685279657
>Audio Technica MSR7s
how do the MSR7's compare to the lower models like the m50x? clearer sound? more bass?
>>
>>685279657

Just going to drop by with the AKG K612 Pro. Which is actually better than the K701/K702 (no treble bump, better low end). Don't know about Schiit, but the O2 is pretty much a no-brainer to buy and never worry.

Anyone know anything about the Lucid Sound LS30? I've been thinking about picking them up.
>>
>>685279868
More bass is NOT a good thing lol, the M50x's have too much bass as it is. They will be more of a reference neutral (making the audio sound like it was meant to sound, with flat levels across the board), and will have pretty decent sound stage for closed back. These things are considered by many to be near reference class (headphones that you can listen to to know what a recording is meant to sound like)

Also I forgot to list the Grado SR325e's, Hifiman HE400/HE400i/HE400s/HE500/HE560(mydreamheadphone)

Any person who spends $300 in a set of headphones is retarded. $25 is more than enough, and with the difference you are paying snobism. Fuck you.
>>
>>685280035
Yeah, I have the O2 amp. The schiit magni is supposed to be just a little bit brighter. Honestly I'm sure they're both verrry comparable and the difference they will make is small. Also the Schiit Magni is $30 less, looks nicer, and is more powerful. However I definitely would give a slight boost to the O2 amp. Also while I'm at it I want to say DACs are a huge waste of money unless you're into Summit-fi. So many blind tests have shown people really can't hear the difference unless the DAC you're using is total shit. Also any difference that is heard isn't universally considered an "improvement" to blind listeners.
>>
>>685280162

uh huh
>>
>>685280162
Have you ever heard $300 headphones?
>>
>>685280162

Depends on what you're using them for.

You get diminishing returns after $150 or so but if you're an audiophile/musician that change in quality is important.

$30 is cheap and you get what you pay for. I've used cheap shitty headphones, currently I'm using pic related that I got for around $150 and it was worth it. If you ever have a $30 pair and a more expensive pair side by side and try both you'll notice in an instant.
>>
>>685280162
Hahaha you never owned such expensive headphones. To hear Goa Trance in clear quality you need those and I recommend a sound card too.

>"Gaymers" buying 3000 € PC systems but spend only 5 € on headphones
>>
>>685280125

As any fool know, I'm not the dreamer here.
Keep saving that allowance Spunky!
>>
>>685280468
I'd recommend NOT getting a sound card and getting a dedicated amp, and a DAC on top of that if you can hear any noise in your system. Sound cards are overpriced compared to external amps and are objectively inferior because they're placed inside your computer tower where they are highly susceptible to picking up noise from all the stuff goin on inside.
>>
>>685279868

You might want to check out goldenears for measurements. Generally look for a linear frequency response, any deviation from linearity means you are coloring your sound differnetly than the master engineer intended (a lot of them are fucktards anyways, but let's assume your music was properly engineered). The second most important thing to look at is the cumulative spectral decay. This shows you the decay time of frequencies inside of the headphones. The shorter the decay, the clearer the audio reproduction.
>>
>>685280162
Depends what you're looking for. The difference between a "good" $25 pair of headphones and a good $100 set is pretty amazing, and above $400 or so you reach a point of rapidly diminishing returns. Over $600 (in my opinion) you're just wasting money.
But if you can afford a set of $1500 headphones and they make you happy, go for it. Who am I to criticize?

>>
>>685278489
same. good shit

I eq some more bass though
>>
>>685280672
A flat line at 0 decibles will not sound like neutrality to human ears for a lot of reasons, it's much more complicated than that. Look up HD600s frequency response. That is what a neutral FR graph will look like, not a flat line. Also it is different for open back, closed back and speakers. Quit spreading ignorance.
>>
>>685280594
Depends on the shielding. But external ones are better yes, but really expensive. Its not worth it for 'cheap' below-500 € headphones.

Below-50 € sound cards are not worth it either, they're meant for broken and old onboard replacement. Those will almost certainly catch inferferences and won't give better quality than a current gen onboard chip.

Also for lowend, I can recommend the Beyerdynamic DTX910, only 40 € new, giving amazing sound quality for the price. I had these from 2013 on and used them until my current T70. Still OK when you compare the price.

If you can get Philips SHP9500s those will get you what top of the line headphones sound like with just slight lack of refinements here and there. Also the HD518s are purty good if you can get them for $50 and the AKG K240s are pretty insane for the price. The very best price to performer will be the legendary cost portapros, but they're not something you're going to want to wear for very long and they look ridiculous. The Superlux 688Bs are definitely worth looking at too. All the headphones I just mentioned are open back and leak sound, but they will give you a far better and speaker-like experience.
>>
>>685278193
yep, I own a pair of these, brilliant sound, comfortable as! but they are heavy, so they're not great for walking of leaving the house.
>>
>>685280247

>Also any difference that is heard isn't universally considered an "improvement" to blind listeners.

This so very much. When people start going into debating noise floors of DACs that already are below what 16bit audio can hold anyways it gets really retarded. Meanwhile a lot of vinyl guys happily sacrifice some dB of an already very audible noise floor to change from MM to MC carts.

At the end of the day it boils down to what you are happy with is best for you. The only place people get up in arms about audio systems is the internet.
>>
>>685280460
These headphone are the ones I have, and I'd honestly would like to know if there's a better pair, because these have brought be the best quality so far, and I'd like to know if there's anything better.
>>
>>
>>685281083
I don't usually go for open-back but those PortaPros definitely have my attention.

Not sure why I don't use open-backs anyway. I use on-/over-ears at home an nowhere else so why the hell not.

Sony MDR-XB950. I'm not looking for the extra bass, but god damn, is that thing rich. It pulls some tones I can't believe are possible. At times I can't tell if I'm hearing some low tone from a show I'm watching, or if I'm hearing a truck rumbling outside.
Couldn't find anything to complain about with these headphones yet, and I've got them for over half a year, I think.

>>
>>685280810

HD600 just rolls off the low end and is for all intenst and purposes linear for the rest of the spectrum. Also, 0 dB.. you trying to say 0 dBFS has any relevance outside the digital domain? You have no idea what you are talking about.

Studio monitors are tuned to a flat line, not the A-curve. Obviously a flat frquency sweep isn't going to sound flat to your ears, but that's not the point.

I found them to be better in general. The ATH-M50s have a very flat sound which I guess is better for mixing music and stuff like that, but when I'm not using headphones for gaming I'm using them with my digital piano or for watching YouTube videos, movies, or listening to music, and the Hypercloud X 2s seem better at all of those tasks.

After a couple of years of daily use the padding on the ATH-M50s had flattened out and they were too uncomfortable to wear for more than an hour or so at a time. I can wear that Kingston headset for hours without feeling any discomfort.

JVC Gumy earbuds. My headphones broke and I didn't have much money, so I picked up a pair for these for $12 at a discount store and I'm genuinely amazed at the quality.
