Sony MDR1RNC. Wanted noise cancelling. Got hiss. Terrible. Went on eBay in less than a year.

I'm going to say Ultrasone Pro 650 over all, since they're bad sounding and excruciating to wear. Following that, I'm embarrassed to say Bose QC25 which I got for their noise cancelling on planes. They do a decent enough job with that, but they really aren't a very good sounding phone for what they cost, even at the discount outlet price.post #1728 of 173210/15/15 at 3:24am
hmm, for headphone, it is Grado SR225, the fitting was not suitable for me, it clamp my ear directly and hurts after around 1 hour of using.
for earphone it is RHA T10i, it's too much bass for me and I feel the mid is too much recessed.post #1729 of 173210/16/15 at 5:15ampost #1730 of 173210/16/15 at 7:03ampost #1731 of 173210/16/15 at 9:38amQuote:Originally Posted by shortstuff
Why? 2 reasons.
1. They sounded much wider and had a lot more detail than my DT770 Pro 80's.
2. They had no bass. NONE. Even when turning up the BASS dial and the parametric EQ on my amp. So I had to go back to my DT 770 Pro 80's. Which are awesome...BUT because of the AKG's I now see their lack of soundstage and clarity.
If only I could find a headphone with the clarity, soundstage, and immense detail of the AKG crossed with the epic sub bass of the DT's. That would be the HOLY GRAIL for me.
I essentially have this problem with headphones, I just got my ETHER C and it's similar to how you feel the 702's sound in the bass (although not as bad as that). The HE-560 has amazing sub bass and good clarity but not as clear in the mids/highs as the ETHER C.post #1732 of 173210/16/15 at 11:00am
