Hey guys I just wanted to follow up and say thanks for all the advice. I ended up getting the Sennheiser HD 449s and they are awesome! Bass is great without being too muddy and they are EXTREMELY comfortable. I was working on a character rig yesterday from 3pm-4am and my ears never hurt even once. I love these things!
Thanks for the advice guys. I really appreciate all the help you have given me.I think I'm gonna go for the HD 449 and try those out as they are cheaper and a lot of amazon reviews praise the comfort and bass. The good thing is I will be able to tell in just a few days if they are comfortable enough to keep. If not, I'll return them and go for the 558.Thanks again guys
So how bad would the sound leakage be? If I were listening to them at a medium level and somebody was sitting just a few feet away from me, would it be an extremely faint sound, slightly apparent, completely obvious and annoying, or somewhere inbetween? Or would it sound as if the headphones were just resting around my neck and never up against my head, sort of just like having mini speakers on? Because if they are too loud to everyone else, I can imagine that being quite...
Thanks for the advice. As long as the bass on the HD 558 is still good, and by that I mean "accurate" then I'm pretty sure I will be fine as my music already puts bass above everything else. I have read on here at least twice that too much bass can lead to "fatigued listening sessions" or something like that. And I am starting to think that in addition to my headphones already being uncomfortable, maybe the added bass isn't helping...So with that in mind, I am starting to...
Ok that is good to hear. Of the DT770 and HD 558, which one wins overall for comfort and which one for bass? And by how much? And how would the HD 449 fit in that area?
If I would have to buy an amp then I would have to rule out the DT770s.So it looks like I'm down to the CAL and the Sennheiser. The problem I see with the CALs is that some amazon reviews mention the top head band being uncomfortable. I think at this point I just need to find where stores have these in stock so I can try them out.
Well I think that will eliminate the SRH 840 then as comfort is top priority. Also, I've read that too much bass can add to discomfort.So here are the top ones I am looking at right now that are in my price range:Creative Aurvana LiveSennheiser HD 449Beyer DT770Some Amazon reviews said the comfort is a little lacking on the CAL as they sit on top of the ear instead of around the ear, much Iike my K181s.Some people say the bass is lacking on the HD 449.Many say that the 80...
I definitely like the design of the dt770s, but there were multiple reviews on amazon saying hey wouldn't be ideal to use without an amp, and that was the reviews of the 80 ohm one.What would you say about the new Sony XB800s? Or the audio technica ath-m50?And the more I use my current headphones, the more I need new ones based on comfort alone. It has a lot of bass and that is nice, but comfort is top priority. And if too much bass can lead to discomfort, then I will just...
Haha my bad, I thought it said "Creative Aurvana Line" instead.How would the bass compare to my AKG K181s?
Haha uh oh! I hope that doesn't mean they were a bad choice...I just looked at the Beyer and Ultrasone ones and they both look very nice and way more comfortable than the ones I have now. Although the mention of ohm levels has me kind of worried that I would choose one that wouldn't be right without more audio equipment.EDIT: Just looked at some reviews on Amazon. Some people complained about the comfort of the Ultrasone, but everybody seemed to like the comfort of the...
