Headphones you regretted buying the most - Page 10

post #136 of 1567
I see that no one complained on DT770s.. Most complaining was on HD595 and DT880 i think..

???

The only reason you buy the DT770 is you need a closed headphone. The DT880s are the better more neutral headphone.

hmm why do many people regret buying the HD595? I think that its a great headphone for just 180$ except that it lacks a little bass.

Maybe they are bass heads. Its was my first openback so I don't know what to expect. It is the best soundstaging I have heard and it makes Evanescene almost haunting. With that said I too find its lack of bass doesn't make the music engaging but I am keeping them for the best gaming experience imo possible.

The DT770 (all versions) is rather a baddy IMO, but not that bad to label it as mispurchase. They still hold their ground on certain topics (build quality, isolation, Ambient & Downbeat stuff).

HD595 60th Anniversary 'Magic Red' edition, grey market import.

So I paid a good deal more than regular HD595s cost, and found I didn't like them. Yet I can't exactly say why. There isn't particular sonic quality I can point to in them that seems sub-par, but any time I tried to use them, I always found myself taking them off and reaching for something else a little while later.

I think I started with the exact same Koss, or if not, a very similar pair. Bought unheard from J&R. Sounded like absolute dog crap. I returned them the next day.

I regret buying the Bose In-Ears. They are very comfortable, but they let in a lot of noise, and thats not good for using at school. Plus, the sound is still way bassy and muddy, even after 20 hours of Pink Noise burn in.

Because they are 180 new and sound identical to the HD 485, which is only 70$. They have a great soundstage for that price, which is why they are popular, but also the reason why people list it here as their mistake. Its audio quality is no where near worth its price.

I personally like the HD485 even better than the HD595...the 595 is the most overrated can existing IMO.

Was really bad a few years ago, crowds of fanboys would slaughter you when you dared to criticise it. A headfi-only phenomenon, other forums have always been more realistic in respect of the HD595.

I own HD650..but I'm always on the run so i decided to get an IEM with deep bass and withing my budget - bought Monster Beats In-Ear..broke after a few months of purchase and could not get a warranty because i bought them from ebay..oh well i had them for 50 bucks less than the retail price so it's all good. Monster's famous "bass"..haah complete joke. Sounds unrealistic and overpowered the mid's and high's. Moved on to Senn IE8's and very happy now
Do not get monster/bose - plain whack.

Exactly.
I can't believe I was comfortable with all those previous whack I was using before I discovered this place.

The 485 is the best set i own. Period. Every other set lets me down heavily so far ( we will see if my new Ultrasone 750s do the same in a few days, i hope not ) but for the price of the 485, you get some incredibly awesome qualities.
Its my favorite set out of everything i own, I use it daily. Immensely underrated and I am ashamed that head fiers do not accept this set as one of the best perhaps ever made.

80$ new if that
incredibly comfy, just as comfy as the expensive senns
you can wear it indefinitely and never get tired
good bass, muddy on high bass tracks but overall very nice
highs are crisp
mids lacking a bit but still great
detachable cable = win

ugh, so many great things i can say about it, almost nothing except soundstage for the 595

Sennheiser HD205....very uncomfortable.....so many months of pain....could have bought Denon D1001 instead.

I regret the Bose In-ears. They don't block ANY noise. So annoying at school. They ARE comfortable though.
