Ultrasone HFI-580 Reviews


A good bassy can, the perfect compliment to your mid/high focused arsenal


Pros: Great Bass, Slightly Sparkly Highs, Good Design, Fair Price

Cons: Can be slightly uncomfortable, no removable cord, mids recessed

  So it’s been a couple of weeks now since I picked up the HFi-580s and I thought it time to give my impressions. For reference the cans have been tested on the following:   Apple iPad 1st Generation 16GB Wifi Model   Samsung Epic 4G Android Phone   Creative Fatal1ty Professional PCI-e Entertainment Profile, no FX,  through Behringer Xenyx 1202FX Mixer through Foobar 2000 ASIO Playback   My comparison is going to be against my previous cans, Shure SRH440s w/ 840 pads. I will not be drawing comparison to the Monoprice cans, as I haven’t used them enough to draw an educated opinion. So let’s begin.   Packaging: The package for...

A worthy upgrade for the M50.


Pros: TIght, clean. clear and detailed bass; sharp and clear mids + highs; unique soundstaging and superior instrumental separation

Cons: Comfort, sometimes uncontrolled highs, lifeless and metallic mids

Ultrasone HFI-580 vs Audio Technica M50 vs Audio Technica Pro700 MKII



Pros: BASS, BASS, forward highs, clarity, good soundstage for closed cans,S-logic plus, isolation (once music is underway), PRaT (or so I've heard)

Cons: Recessed mids, really long burn-in, really long cord, bits of sibilance

My gateway drug to the realm of audiophilia. Bought them to pwn Monsters, but they do far more. These cans are BASS MONSTERS, with punchy, powerful bass that goes loooooow; They KICK but they RUMBLE too. Word on the street is that an amp does a bit in reigning in the bass so the mids can come out and play. Burn-in took daaays, but after it all I feel like the bass became a bit more tame (EQ and amplification will still easily let out the capacity of this can's lows). They cans particularly rock for hip-hop, rap, R&B, techno, dubsteb, and folk/acoustic. Yes. Folk, acoustic.    go get you a pair.   Fight the Beats hype.

Ultrasone hfi 580


Pros: Sound quality, comfort, bass, highs/lows, looks, style, feel, design, sound isolation

Cons: None.

Very good headphones with great bass output. Beats the m50's by a mile and has good highs/mids without bass overpowering them. The headphones look really cool and are legit looking. They fold up and don't look to big on your head. Overall great headphones in every aspect.
