post #16 of 23
Sit back and think how hifi music you listen. Then....

595 for modern compressed garbage and you'll be happy
580 if Dire Straits is your thing

If just for PC gaming, get the 595s.

is it true that headphones only get better and less lacking as you go up in the Senn line?

the HD555's have an awesome amount of bass/musicality and not so much detail, but im looking to enjoy my music, not map it out.

cuz im looking for some HD580s because they pretty much hit the sweet spot in my price range

Yep, had this combo, sounded very nice. My K-501 sounded better in the setup than my HD-595 though.

To me, the 595 sounds like 2 mono channels (left channel and right channel) instead of music coming from 1 source, like the 580.

The 580 sounds muddy only when I used my old school soundcard, SoundBlaster Live. I don't think it's muddy, even when I'm using my free mp3 player, unamped. So, it depends on your source/system.

Not to mention your music preferences. If you're hearing mainstream music, mostly not an audiophile quality, you won't hear differences.

Is that because Little Dot is warm/ bass heavy? So, mixing bassy amp with a bassy headphone, would make it 2x as bassy, I guess.

Do you think the 501 is very lean on bass, compared to senns, 580/595? What about for rap/ hip hop; can you enjoy them with the 501?
