AKG K612 PRO Reference Studio Headphones

Fantastic sound for the price

Flizz

Pros: Bass texture, incredibly smooth across all frequencies

Cons: Treble can be harsh at first; takes time to mellow out

First impressions   When I first tried these headphones out of the box, I was a little disappointed at how the higher frequencies seemed to be more forward than the mids and bass. It wouldn't have been a huge deal, except that the treble was also completely unforgiving on sibilant tracks, which really put me off. The saving grace at the time was that the bass, while not having a...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

“ (Disclaimer: This review was written while considering the very low price-point of the M50, and what you can get for that amount of money. It does not mean the M50 can go up against the high-end headphones that cost several hundred to thousands of dollars. My main headphones are high-end headphones, and the M50 is only used while I'm doing tracking or traveling. I wouldn't use it as my...” --Lunatique

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

“I've listenend to all the top offerings from Denon, Audeze, AKG, Hifiman, Ultrasone & Sennheiser and this is my personal favourite. It is a true reference class headphone that is very natural sounding, albeit leaning ever so slightly towards a darker tone. The sound is detailed, smooth and richly textured, especially drums come alive amazingly well. It has no problem spanning all the way...” --TwoEars

Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones

“ REVIEW: Sennheiser HD 800Overview Reviewing a statement product is tough – especially one that was as highly anticipated as the HD800. There is already a huge buzz on head-fi about them, and many have already declared them the best dynamic headphone on the market. But most of these proclamations have been from owners, One potential difference between my listening to the HD800 and other...” --Skylab

Audeze LCD2 Planar Magnetic Headphones

Audeze LCD2 Planar Magnetic Headphones

“I felt extremely priveledged to be included in the first group of people to hear the long awaited and much anticipated release of Audeze's LCD2. Some history: I am not new to planar magnetic technology and have been an avid fan and disciple of planar magnetic headphones ever since I was lured into the murky waters by the vintage yamaha orthodynamic headphones. If not for the keen efforts of...” --dBel84

Sennheiser HD-598

Sennheiser HD-598

“Note: This is my first audiophile headphones so i can't compare them to any other headphones out there for the same price.   These headphones are well designed, fit your head perfectly and are extremely lightweight. They are made out of plastic but they don't look cheap. They are very solid in my opinion. You can wear these for a long session and never worry about them. This is the...” --revanxp

Sennheiser HD 600

“The Sennheiser HD600 is an open dynamic circumaural head-phone which Sennheiser market for audiophiles, and also state as ideal for studio monitoring.     Pre-amble (about me at time of writing) I'm a 44 year old music lover.  I don't say audiophile - just love my music.  Over the last couple of years, I have slowly changed from cheaper listening set-ups to my current...” --Brooko

Superlux HD-668 B

“ As the saying in the title goes, this has never been truer than for these headphones. Thankfully, Superlux sells sound quality, not an overhyped brand name. Can you really get great sound for $40? Oh yes, and it's right here.   I was recommended these headphones by a fellow forum member and after a day or two of investigation I decided I really liked what I read about them and...” --WrxSTI

Beyerdynamic Tesla T1

Beyerdynamic Tesla T1

“This is not going to be as thorough or long as my normal reviews for now - but I wanted to get something in place.  I have always liked Beyer headphones, but they all had some very defining character or flavor - even the most neutral, the DT880/600, was a little hot in the treble and a little light in the bass, IMO.   Well, the T1 changes all that.  While maybe just a touch lush, it is...” --Skylab

“ Disregard my earlier hate for these have come to appreciate these for what they are.   COMFORT To start off my review i would like to say my opinions on comfort with these. Lots of people complain about them being uncomfortable or heavy, the truth of the matter is they feel rather light to me. Are people here really weak or something? i find these really comfortable, but just like...” --bcasey25raptor
