>>
>>51530858
Fostex in general. This is still a dynamic driver, the whole biodynamic driver thing is a gimmick. There are lots of dynamic drivers with gimmicky materials and technologies like
Beyerdynamic's Tesla, JVC's carbon nanotube drivers, CAL 2's Bio-Cellulose diaphragms... etc. They've been making these drivers since the 80's and the TH-x00 is just a
returned Denon AHD2000/TH600/TH900, both of the latter hardly compete in their price ranges. The only reason people got them was because of their bass extension and now that
they've tuned it to be flatter it hardly matters because the other aspects aren't that exceptional as far as sound quality goes. They will sound just as good as 400 dollar headphones
but nothing more. They look pretty but that's were my love ends. That non detachable cable looks horrible and it terminates on a 6.5mm plug and i'd much rather
have a 3.5mm with a screw on adapter.
>>
>>51529698
>do you own multiple headphones?
Yeah
>is it worth getting multiple pairs to have different sounding headphones possibly for different music?
If you like collecting headphones, sure, but for the sole purpose of listening to different genres? No, it costs a lot less to pick just one headphone that's comfortable and works for you. For most people i know who are into headphones having two (one portable and one for home use) is enough.
>is an equalizer enough?
Whille i wouldn't say it's "enough" as in "it will fix every problem", it surely helps. Say you have bassier headphone that fits your taste for hip-hop or something and want to listen to Glenn Miller for some reason, EQing down the bass is a much cheaper alternative than buying another headphone.

Perhaps for collection purposes, in fact i always keep an eye open for some models i'd like to have, HD600 is one, but otherwise probably not, i mean, it sounds great imo, but it's not something i'd "need", the headphones i have already satisfy my needs, in fact, i'd probably be happy just with the DT800 and the V6, the others have being seeing less and less use.

>>51531105
Tesla is the easiest "gimmick" to copy, seeing as how any manufacturer wants to increase magnetic field density.
It's not a gimmick in that stronger magnetic field increases force on the coil, but it is in that the wire loop length and geometry determine the final result.
It's definitely not something worth building a brand around.

Used to own many more than the one pair I have now, plus the IEM.
>is it worth getting multiple pairs to have different sounding headphones possibly for different music
No. There is a decent chance you will gravitate to one pair for most tracks, unless you wanted some pretty headphones as a showpiece. I can't know your needs, so better not to declare absolutes.
>or is an equalizer enough?
Equalizers are a very powerful tool. They don't do everything, but people constantly underrate the effect of frequency response, and the effect that an EQ can have. Using one effective might displace other headphones in rotation.
>>
>>51531914
>but people constantly underrate the effect of frequency response, and the effect that an EQ can have
I remember when I first got into the hobby, the thought of getting a frequency response measurement graph and flipping it upside-down in EQ to get a flat response was laughable and EQ could do nothing but degrade audio fidelity.

It's these kinds of misconceptions projected onto newbies that are a real problem.
>>
>>51531491
pic your favorite albums and give them some special attention so it will be more appearent what's different between the HD800 and your older headphones, make a list of the ones you think will sound best on it, make find a movie or some vydia you find to sound particularly nice sounding.
>>
>>51531914
>people constantly underrate the effect of frequency response
Agreed. While there are things that an EQ can't fix, knowing how to adjust a frequency response can do wonders.

There are several i'd like to add to my collection some day, like the HD600, K702, K242HD, M100, K601, X2 etc, but none of them are priorities (some i can't even find in my country). I do want to get and test a few "upgrades" like an HE560, some Stax and perhaps an HD800 for dynamic drivers.
Honestly, for now all i need is a pair of near field monitors, i'm nearly graduated, people are starting to ask me to mix/master stuff and i'll not have access to the college's monitors for much longer.

I wonder how these things start, or get perpetuated. I know there are many awful graphic EQs, but we have better things now for free.

>>51532191
Measure a headphone with an accurate mic to get the frequency response. Fix the headphone response so that it is a flat frequency response, fill in the dips, chop down the peaks and so on.
Do it with a parametric EQ with sufficient bands for precise adjustments.

It's much easier to convince someone gettint into the hobby that something so simple, easy to access and -logical- actually works. Same with gear and their pricing, somebody new to the hobby is much more inclined to believe a $500 DAC is going to sound better than a $50 DAC and so on.

>>51532753
For a while use used some shitty m-audio monitors, today they use Genelec ones, i believe it's the 8050B, can't remember exactly. Still, we spend most of the time with headphones, mixing/mastering exams for example, you just can't have that many students making noise, the teachers were however trying to figure ways so that more people listen to the same pair of monitors without getting too affected by not being in the sweet spot, it would come in handy for classes.
>>
hey /hpg/ anybody with q701s care to share what amp/dac they are using, the magni+modi combo looks nice but much more than I want to pay. maybe a 2 in 1 amp/dac would be a less expensive option?

That's a great measurement. It's not as DF as Etymotic and it doesn't extend as well in the highs but I'd take that XBA-100 over many choices for a portable IEM.

*Note I don't like Etymotic IEMs, they're a benchmark for sound quality but it's too finicky to deal with outside, for me at least.

>>51533129
The guide is extremely biased and it should be removed. The mic/interface guide should also be removed as it has nothing to do with headphones.

In fact, there should only be the request purchase advice and the wiki link in the OP. The 200 and over headphone image can go in the wiki.

The OP is full of shit.

The IEM guide is outdated, maybe that can stay as it's actually decent.

Maybe he's right, I haven't heard it myself. And it seems to have smooth treble a la Etymotic. I didn't think it would be so expensive since single the other single driver Sony BAs are quite cheap.

I have no use for IEMs since I bought a car.

>>51533629
Under $200 there's A LOT of options as well, I'm a bit of a perfectionist, if I end up doing it, it would have to be complete and most importantly free of silly fanboy biases. I'm not a Sennheiser shill but the omission of them is plain anti-shilling.

>>51533637

>>
>>51533697
i would say as long as you cover all or most of the most important bases youd be good
like, 2 sections, above and below 200
in each one, best "mobile" (low impedance) closed headphone, best "home" (high impedance) closed headphone. best mobile and home open headphone. these are a good start and just an example. and you just keep going for as many metrics as you care to go for.

E11 was noisy from the start, and at some point a few months in it was making this repeated buzzy morse code sound which was louder than whatever music was playing usually

It's nearly half-priced from etymotic actually. Good compromise I guess. What speaker did you use for your car?

Here's your reply https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkZPj9F0y18. Sorry. But it's time for me to go and stop lurking here. I was wondering if I should retaliate immediately to your insult.

Thank you to that anon who gave me the advice to try Stax and Hifiman headphones from months ago. Thank you for that anon who posted about the Philips SHP9500 that was on sale. I've joined the bandwagon. And now it's time I jumped out of it.

Bla bla bla, nobody f'ing cares. Well I do when I get personal insults. >>51531598 is not even me. I own a very cheap LG and Asus monitor. Do you see me shitpost or shill? I never have!

Everytime I put on my headphones and listen I feel like crap. And now after venting I feel "a little bit better!". My headphones now sound sweet now that I've left /hpg/. If you want to leave a HATEFUL post or reply. Leave it. I'm taking a very long break from lurking here. I hope you're happy with more cancer and greed.
>>
>>51533727
Best is entirely subjective. I feel that listing the attributes of headphones in the guide can make a user of the guide select the product that's best to his/her taste.

For example one user may want a neutral sound and the other will want strong bass, there's options for both. Picking a particular product as best would just create bias in the guide, even if you try to use sound quality as a metric (most neutral), it's pointless as the guide is to help the user make an informed decision.

I understand that there's some guys who literally have zero knowledge and just want something decent and maybe there should be a particular note to get that specific one.

Stock Harman Kardon system.

But I don't listen to anything specifically while driving. My engine is loud as fuck and at medium volumes it's audible, I prefer to listen loudly and that's something I won't do while driving obviously.
>>
>>51533842
BMW?
>>
>>51533809
Some opinions:

I thought the open EL-8 had some interesting traits to it. Bass and midrange are very near dead flat. The high midrange starts to fall downward in response. The lower treble, there is no lower treble, there is a complete cancellation of the lower treble. The frequency response recovers moving into the extreme highs.
The effect is weird. You have this very flat EQ bass and midrange, so it doesn't seem as bass leaning as some of the other Audezes. But there is this weird lack of energy and clarity and vocal power, it sounds like it disappears into a hole. But there is the upper treble that it has, which gives it some transient snap.
Connectors are pretty annoying, a few month old demo unit had some loose cable entry into the earcups. Someone also managed to wire them in reverse polarity.

The closed Audezes, I'd rather not talk about them. I didn't like any of them so far, I don't want to remember them. Feel free to listen in person if you have the chance.

It's funny that the same company that I work for in the UK's policy is the same but all company cars must be manual unless the person has a disability. Fuck my shit up.

>>51534070
There's a LCD-4 now? Wow. And $4000, top kek.

Is there any IEM that's closest to a neutral signature but is not Etymotic? The XBA-100 looks pretty tempting, and I wasn't planning on spending any more on audio.
>>
>>51533957
Current state as in chinese-tier QC?

>>51534070
I don't know how single BA is tuned as usually people in my place are either using dynamic driver or multi BA for IEM, until xba-100 came and suddenly people talking about it. Did the treble in etys sounds harsh? I find xba-100 are kinda bleeding my ears that I can't wear it more than a hour.
>>
>>51534251
Yeah, and the fact that they're releasing just downright shitty products. I really liked the LCD-2 Rev 2, but I haven't heard anything else from them since they Fazor'd their lineup.

What kept me from buying the LCD-2 was the weight, it felt heavy while listening for a mere 15 minutes and while it didn't fatigue me, I feel like hours are a different story.

Not him obviously, but I don't think Ety's treble is harsh. It's quite smooth actually. Some of the best.
>>
>>51534219
>LCD-4
Did I mention it weighed more than previous Audezes? At least it has a support strap.

>neutral non-Ety IEM
From anything that isn't made by some obscure new company still getting around the hurdles of manufacturing (Wavelet design)? Not sure.
Suyama seems to have killed the F111 line, there's probably some single BA out there that you can stick an resistor adapter on to balance out the highs.

>>51534251
>QC
LCD-3 QC sucks. Not as badly as when it first came out, but it was still bad for years. Has it been fixed? We have to wait and see.
>treble in Etys sound harsh
Not really, but most single BAs tend to roll off the treble some more than the HF5, which is itself slightly dark.
>I find xba-100 are kinda bleeding my ears that I can't wear it more than a hour.

>>51534419
Looks like something that exists for the purpose of milking lonely otaku. Are there measurements of this?
>>
>>51534470
It's a new product and JDM. I bet it'll hard to find measurement, just like Flat4-Kaede II. The only flat4 measurement I can found is flat4-sui, the first line-up from flat4.
>>
>>51534470
>F111
Or the very similar Sonion driver, I never saw a confirmation on that. But I think he stopped making them.

>Are there measurements of this?
Measurements of a new and restricted export CIEM? Unlikely.

And the sui doesn't measure too well it seems.
>>51534560
Ah, I see.

>>51534570
Well, it was the first application of tornado equalizer on IEM. That's why it didn't seems favorable results. Shame I can't get any measurement on Kuro or Kaede to see the improvement as M.R.O stopping doing measurement. I'm still curious about it.

Ive had some friends recommend the Sennheiser HD598s and while they seem decent enough they also seem to be more of the popular pick than anything.

HD598 are just overpriced HD558s with a fuck ugly color scheme.

Any decent amplifiers with dual headphone outputs?

Are there any graphs showing the FR of the Sennheiser HD 598? Please don't say "Hd 558 sounds the same without foam", I'm not poor.

If you're "into" headphones you'll end up owning more than one pair, because you enjoy the variety. but don't start out that way, start out cheap and move up. that's what I did and I own 10 headphones now and 5 IEMs.

No, it's not a joke. I've had and heard gaming headphones which have even more ridiculous amounts of bass than the HD 681 Evos to the point where that's literally all you can hear. More bass is not better bass, it's the opposite. You still might like it though.

Pic related is the response of HD 681 Evos and this is the M50X:

>>51536761
They look kinda similar in measurements where HD 558s/598s have a slight edge but it's minimal compared to the price difference. Assuming you can still cop the SHP 9500s for their old retail price.

>>51536763

Really went the other way for me. Stuck with one pair and don't see a point in hoarding more.

Are you sure you're not somehow limiting bass through your sound setup? Not who you were replying to, but my 681 Evos are bassy as hell. The sub bass in some poorly mastered content is unbearable without EQ. Feels like my skull is being physically abused or something.

Though sometimes having drivers that can go so low is nice.
>>
>>51537196
below-neutral bass is unacceptable with any music.

>>51537074
try a different source because you're fucking up somewhere or maybe yours is just defective. maybe you're plugged into line out or don't have that port assigned as headphone? the 681evo is extremely bassy, I should know I own them.

I have TMJ and can only wear headphones that don't put any force onto my jaw. Unfortunately, any decent quality pair is intent on crushing my head.

Am I doomed to shitty $20 headphone forever?
>>
>>51538498
SHP9500
Philips Fidelio X2
DT880 Premiums
K7xx

All of these have a clamping force looser than your mom's aging vagina. If those aren't your thing then try IEMs.
>>
>>51538590
All those headphones have fuckhuge earpads that will push on the jaw. However they all have soft memory foam padding, and the clamping force shouldn't be that high, and it gets distributed very well anyway.
I guess IEMs would be a safer solution. That, or on-ears.
>>
>>51536954
Sizzling sounds, S and around that frequency. You generally perceive that as "clarity". Around 6kHz the frequencies tend to get really harsh and fatiguing but around 3-4kHz a drop in frequency response would indicate lack of clarity and kind of muffled/veiled sound. You can try it if you have at least acceptable quality headphones right now. Use an equalizer to drop down frequencies around that area.

from experience the shp9500 didn't push on my jaw, the X2s pressed lightly but the clamp was super light and most of the pressure was distributed along the headband. On ears can get uncomfortable if the clamp is too tight. What are some on ears with light clamp?
>>
>>51538802
>the clamp was super light and most of the pressure was distributed along the headband
I know, but if his condition is severe, even a light push can result in pain. As far as I under, the Beyerdynamic T50p shouldn't have a skullcrushing clamp, but I never tried them, so I don't know that for sure.

Tube amp is probably just hipster so rek me for it if it is. What else would be good? I think I've decided on the DT 770s for sure though.

The bravo audio V2 is not a true tube amp. There is not enough voltage going into the tube.

It isn't. It may be easier to jack p the playback level with an IEM, but the sound isn't going to present any inherent risks besides the frequency response.
>>
My he-400i's came in last night from the sale, no complaints.
>>
>>51540531
>besides the frequency response
What do you mean? Is there a particular set of frequency responses that's better to avoid? What do you suggest?
>>
>>51532118
Not the amazon store that has a discount. From a different seller on amazon.

The Beyer DT770s 80ohm go on sale on Amazon tomorrow for what I would assume will be about £80. Worth picking up?

Avoid emphasis around frequency range of your tinnitus, assuming hearing damage induced tinnitus (its usual cause).

How do they sound in terms of instruments' separation, soundstage and bass quality? On headfi they say that they're the most detailed headphones in the 150-300$ price range
>>
>>51540920
> list price 499$
Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

>>51540815
I see. Thank you very much anon.
>>
>>51540949
There's no excessive punch to the bass, just what would be in the music normally. Instrument separation is a little subjective track to track depending on the artists' mixdown. The soundstage is pretty small in the sense that it feels like you're right in the room with the artists.

And they feel AMAZING I listen to them for three hours at a time with no head fatigue.

Huh? This sounds really strange to me, according to most people AKG K7XX/702 have a huge soundstage...

Well I guess I'm gonna grab another pair of SE215's. There are no good suggestions in the OP for IEM's around 100-200. It's just easier to go with what you know I suppose.

Is there an easy way to remove the mesh head band from the Philips Fidelio X2

I have ringworm on my scalp and my doctor said to wash anything I put on my head as to not re-infect myself ;_;

>There are no good suggestions in the OP for IEM's around 100-200.
Etymotic HF5: better isolation, better build quality, better response (more neutral), better CSD.
>>
>>51541748
I swear that looked like another troll suggestion. After getting trolled with the SE215's bass I thought never again. Now I think I've become used to the bass.
>>
>>51541742
No. It's riveted, and the rivets are made of plastic.if

What happened?
>Now I think I've become used to the bass.
The HF5 have very little amount of bass in terms of presence, so you might dislike them because they're not as boomy as the SE215.
>>
>>51541833
The HF5's look like ear butt plugs and are "Highly recommended"

If they're actually good I'll give them a shot

Is an AMP needed for HD600/HD650? I'm thinking about buying them if they're cheap on black friday.
>>
>>51541894
They're specifically designed to be the most isolating universal fit IEMs, hence the shape.

>if they're actually good
It's impossible to tell until you try them: some say they're no-bass hearing-aid drivers sold as high fidelity earphones, others say they're the most accurate IEMs on the market in the sub-200$ price range. Anons here can start a civil war on this subject.

Looking for advice. I've had AKG K26P headphones, which were later renamed K414P, for a VERY long time. 10 years by now. I like that they have extremely high bass and a bit tighter than they should be (can get uncomfortable over a long time, but it also means they provide a shit ton of sound isolation, especially for such a cheap headphone).

Unfortunately, the plastic parts on them wear out over time. I had 3-4 of these and kept using them as spare parts for each other, but my last one is starting to get loose as well.

I've found that they re-released it again as the K404. However this was a long time ago, and now these aren't available anymore either.

Does anyone know if these phones are still available, perhaps under a different name, or a different head band? The K430 looks pretty similar, and I can find it on amazon for a great price, but I don't know if they sound the same. I'm really used to how bass heavy these phones are.

Does anyone know how the K430 sound?

The Koss Portapro would be a great replacement, but they are not as tight as I like them to be, and do not give that little sound isolation that makes the K414P so awesome. I have one, and they sound pretty much the same indoors, but they sound much worse outdoors.

You'll most likely to need to hand wash it very carefully and let it dry for a few days.
>>
>>51541913
>Is an amp needed for HD600/HD650
Maybe. Depends on how loudly you listen and what you already have.
>>
AKG K240 MKII are on sale for 89 pounds, are they any good? Im looking for some open headphones around 100 euros
>>
>>51542205
I'm going to use it with my desktop PC and my windows volume is around 50% most of the time. I usually don't have a very high volume
>>
>>51542352
just get a X2 or MA900 and stop caring about amps
>>
>>51537517
X2 is inferior if you're judging by sound quality.
>>
>>51542352
Windows volume doesn't mean much, but is this already with a headphone? If so, what is it?
>>
>>51542410
I have ATH M50, they're getting old and I want top upgrade.

Stop recommending your shitty grado clones and move on with your poor purchase.

sony's are good though right?

I've had earphones and they've stayed intact for years. Dunno about headsets though.
>>
>>51542328
Apparently they are quite detailed and generally well regarded but slightly lacking in bass, not that I have first hand experience was just interested in them myself.

Where are they on sale?

So, just reading over the pastebins. So please forgive me if this is a stupid question, but when selecting a sound profile, would it not be best to select neutral and use secondary amplification later on if you wanted a specific sound profile? Rather than buying something that has a distorted one from the get go?
>>
>>51542578
If I wanted to fit in I'd own sennheisers, the generic pleb trash of the audiophile world.
>>
>>51542609
Amplification does not change sound signature, it only makes things louder.

A software equalizer can change it.

Not everyone prefers a neutral sound signature.

Not very bass heavy according to measurements but measurements may not show the bass accurately.
