I'm currently using a pair of M-Audio Q40s that are starting to fall apart. I started off not liking these things but eventually they grew on me.
I'd like an upgrade for my next pair, here are my details.

>Budget
$250 soft ceiling
>Source
Lossless/320kbps to X-Fi Titanium(not HD) to SMSL sAp III to headphones
>Isolation
No isolation required
>Type
Full-sized over ear
>Tonal balance
I like a good amount of sub-bass, but I think the mids and vocals are the most important part of a song.
>Past headphones
ATH-AD700, M-Audio Q40 Studiophile
>Preferred music
Triphop, pop, house, etc. Strong vocal focus with both varying tempo and occasional bass emphasis.
>Location
United States

When wearing my AD700s I found that I greatly enjoyed the open soundstage and airy-ness of it, but the lack of mid and sub-bass really subtracted from the experience of more fast-paced beat heavy songs.
I've been looking at the DT880/990 and the HE-400s but I'd like to know my options before I drop cash on this.
I enjoy taking things apart and modifying them and I heard the Fostex T50RP are a good platform for relatively cheap planar magnetic cans.
I play games but I'd rather not compromise for them if I don't have to, these would be mostly for music and general usage.
Any recommendations?
>>
>>45234377
I actually recommend trying to EQ your headphones first. Google an EQ tutorial. I used one from headfi and it worked fine for my AD900x, however I personally use a more complex process that makes use of a measurement mic. The amount you need to EQ is kind of a lot though, so be ready to turn that AMP up to compensate for the lowered pregain. There may or may not be more distortion that is noticeable, though I don't perceive any on my pair, I can't say for the AD700.
>>
>>45234436
I'll give that a try, but my headphones are still falling apart structurally.
Would swapping the driver into a different, cheap pair present too many problems?
>>
>>45234528
Probably if you're good with soldering and making things. The resulting sound might be even better, who knows.

M40x or MDR-7506?

>>45234643

>>45232721

How do you guys feel about the Koss ProDJ100 Headphones? I am just looking for some decent 60ish dollar headphones that I am fine with carrying around in my back pack (I will still take good care of them, but I am in college and frequently take a pair of headphones with me when I walk places). They are mentioned in one of the guides in the sticky, so I figure they cannot be too bad. Anyone have any experience with them?

just get earbuds unless you want to be known as the autist who wears his headphones around all day. Because let's face it, you're gonna be wearing that shit around your neck.

Protip, for minimal autism points just get apple earbuds, this automatically signals people that you're willing to talk to them instead of being someone who prefers listening to his music and living in his own little world.

I don't really like earbuds. I also plan on using them when I work in the library, on airplanes, buses, etc. Are there any ~60 dollar non-autist headphones you can recommend?

If not, what are the best >60 dollar buds you could recommend? I don't like the new apple buds, cause they don't stay in my ears very well.
>>
>>45236553
yes, neutral sound
>>
>>45236553
The M50Xs isolate pretty well. This can kind of throw you for a bit when you talk, or cause you to talk a little loud. Otherwise, they're pretty solid. They're not completely neutral, as they lean on the bass a tiny bit, but they sound good and are comfortable.

Looking for my first pair of full sized headphones, want some suggestions to try out in stores before I make the final decisions, have been looking at various options but they seem to get fairly 'low' reviews. I guess I can't expect TOO much with this kind of budget, but still.


>Budget
Would like to keep under €100 but can go over it if the increase in quality is worth it.

>Source
Desktop at home.
Occassionally phone on the train

>Requirements for Isolation
Fairly low, some public transport noise.

>Preferred Type of Headphone
Full sized over ears, need to be comfortable for long sessions.

>Preferred tonal balance
Bass heavy with decent mids

>Past headphones
Only <€30 IEMs; Sony MDR 12-LP: I was incredibly satisfied with the sound for it's price, too bad they broke after ~1.5 years and they don't seem to be available in my country anymore.
Sennheiser MX470's. Pretty good substitute for the Sony's, not as good though.
Have the Logitech x-530's as desktop speakers, but since I'm moving into a student's apartment I can't afford to blast music through the house anymore like I used to.

>Preferred Music
Mostly electronic music, bass heavy.

>what headphones should I use for gaming?
There are a few things you should look for. It is generally recommended on /hpg/ that you purchase headphones and a microphone separately rather than a headset. Avoid gimmicks such as built in surround sound and wireless headsets. Look for open headphones with a wide soundstage. This helps with positional accuracy in FPS where you will be able to tell the location of a certain sound effect, such as the footsteps of an enemy. If you feel you need surround sound, it can be done in software, such as Dolby Headphone. This is a very brief synopsis to point you in the right direction.

What do? I want them for music too, its actually a higher priority than games but still???

I own the Marshall Minor. They aren't isolating at all. They also have a warm, more full, mid centric sound. The build quality of them of has impressed me for the price I paid for them. They are my general buds that I wear when I'm out around in the town and take a fair amount of abuse, such as being scrunched up and shoved in my pocket, or having the cables pulled by clothing. I also wear them in the rain while hiking when I don't want to get my PortaPros wet. I think I've had them for three years, maybe more.

I feel like I've been missing out on decent sound quality for my entire life. I use broken fucking ear buds that I don't even know where I got. When I do use the speakers they are either from my old laptop or cheap TV. I was hoping I could get a pair of cheap headphones to get an idea of the difference. The thing is, will I even notice a difference with a pair of <30 headphones?
>>
>>45238164
The earpads/headbands sure aren't though. Unless you don't mind the earpads on your $15k headphones flaking due to the thin vinyl sennheiser used on them. Oh well, at least the stators are coated in gold!

Are wireless headphones really looked down? I currently have a wireless headset and it kind of sucks. If /g/ thinks they're inferior in terms of quality, then I'll consider getting some wired headphones. I wouldn't mind spending $100-$200

Also, what could I do for a headset? I use it a lot to make business calls.
>>
>>45240689
>Are wireless headphones really looked down [upon]?
Yes.
>>
>>45240662

Those clip on ones always used to end up hurting my ears after prolonged use. I was thinking about going off the under $200 guide in the OP.

>>45240674

>forgetting about dre

Yup.
>>
>>45240694

That's fine, if they're lower quality then I don't need to repeat the same mistake. However, I do like having a headset for practical reasons, because I take a lot of calls for work and because it was wireless I could walk around the house. I wouldn't mind getting some great headphones but I'd hate to lose the ability to do this.

Any thoughts on a potential setup?

Headsets are also looked down upon here. Get a pair of nice headphones and a Modmic.
>>
>>45240702
It's not really clip on per say. It is a bendable piece that can form your the shape of your ears, super comfortable. If you don't like it, you could always return them/
>>
>>45240763
>>45240804
Actually, now that I think about it, what would probably be ideal for you is to get just separate headphones, nice headphones, for pleasure use, and a wireless headset with a mic for work.
>>
>>45240763
Have a ghetto one for work, Then have another for play.
>>
>>45240804

Ok, a modmic sounds like a great start. What about wireless?

>>45240824

I thought about that and it's a bit inconvenient and I would rather not, but I can see why it would be a better solution.
>>
>>45240813

I think I'd rather make an informed choice than buy something and immediately return it, bro.
>>
>>45240834
If sound quality is an issue for you at all then simply avoid wireless technology right now.
>>
>>45240855

I mean, I listen to mp3 and spotify, do I really need great headphones? What's the best wireless headset out there that could at least be passable as headphones?

>>45240881
>I mean, I listen to mp3 and spotify, do I really need great headphones?
192 kbps MP3 is indistinguishable from lossless, so that's not a reason not to desire improved sound quality. I'm going to stick with the statement I made >>45240855

There are so many options that don't involve a a shit headset. Actual headphone makers produce professional headsets for the broadcast industry, such the AKG HSC271, Beyerdynamic DT190, Sennheiser HD26 Pro. Their are mics that you can clip on to headphones such as the Antlion Modmic or the Zalman mic. Then there are desk mics, such as the popular Blue Snowball, the USB AKG Perception 120 or the Audio Technica AT2020. It comes down to what you want to spend and what your priorities are.
>>
>>45240897

Ok, I did not know that, so downloading 320 kbps MP3s is a waste of space then?

That's fine, I think it's decent advice. I think getting a really cheap separate headset I can quickly put on when I want to talk and move around the house would be fine. I could then have some quality shit. I don't think I'd need a modmic though then because I really don't use my mic for anything other than calls. I don't really game anymore
>>
>>45240940
>so downloading 320 kbps MP3s is a waste of space then?
I'd say so, but not for the reason you think. I don't use MP3 in the first place. I use .opus, which is superior to MP3, on my PMP and archive music in lossless form for future use. Thus, for example, if a lossy format superior to .opus comes around in the future I'll have the music in lossless form to encode to that new format, which is good as re-encoding lossy files to a lossy format is never advisable. This is the method I would advocate for anyone with the storage space for music archival.
>>
>>45240985

Yeah, I don't sold my desktop... I guess the other issue is that I use spotify.
>>
>>45241008
Spotify, even without Premium, offers 160 kbps Ogg Vorbis streaming, which should be indistinguishable from lossless, as Ogg Vorbis is a superior lossy format to MP3 (and Opus is even better than Ogg Vorbis).
>>
>>45241029

does premium offer anything better?
>>
>>45240897
>192 kbps MP3 is indistinguishable from lossless

I have the SMH 1000.

It's basically has the signature of a 7506 without what some people call harshness.

SMH 1000 has the following:

- obviously a stolen V6/7506 chassis but with removable cable
- clean & no bloated bass for a closed headphone
- clean mids with emphasis for tracking vocal consonant sounds and sibilance
- smooth and rolled treble after 10khz

Computer or tablet/phone. This is mostly for computer use. Playing games, watching shows, and only occasionally listening to music.

>Requirements for Isolation
This is the most important factor. Really, it's the only thing I care about. I just want to block out the bass from my neighbour's shitty nigger music and his TV. It isn't that loud, and I can't hear his music aside from the beat of the bass or feel it. It's still loud enough that I can't work on homework/read or sleep though.

I love them. I have this nigger headband mod which makes the weight distribution a lot more even than on the standard headband. I have some EQ applied to them in foobar2k which rises the upper mids/low treble a bit making them sound extremely clear but still not bright. Low end is perfect as it is, no need to touch it. I've been thinking of getting the HD 800s but simply can't justify the price after these. I have heard them and they sound fantastic while being extremely comfy but... These already sound so goddamn good that I don't really feel like spending double just to get something more comfy.

These are sounding more tempting. I usually go for a brighter signature but with the HD650 I was made aware just how much I do enjoy a warmer sound, especially with rock. I should be testing the HD800 next week if the weather is decent enough for me to travel out of where I live. If you like the sound of the HE500 and want something more you could look at Audeze, there are plenty of mods available for extra comfort.
