Try the HD-598, you might like the over all sound.

But if you had wanted bassy headphones, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80-Ohm (closed) might have been a better pick.

Or Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250-Ohm (open).

But you would need to use a headphone amplifier with these.

Hey guys first post here.

 

I need headphones that i can wear them for even 8 hours constantly and feel comfortable. Also it's crucially important that they are durable cause i'm gonna be using them during traveling. To make things easier i really don't care about sound quallity. I know it should be basic but i wouldn't mind a not great quality as long as the price stays around 50$

A recommendation i got was to try a pair from wesc. They're in this price range and they're durable enough.

Also, as far as bass goes, i am just looking for something that will provide decent bass... the main thing i want is sold vocals and instrumentals... something that will make something like this sound amazing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWOyfLBYtuU&feature=relmfu

or

I've never used Grados and I own the Senn HD-558s.

Grados are described as sitting in the front row at a rock concert.

I'm assuming the HD-598s are more balanced.

Somewhere on Head-Fi there is a "Sennheiser HD-598 Appreciation Thread", should be a good place to ask about the HD-598.

Like what headphone amplifier bring out the bass on it.

I'm looking for a set of around ear headphones that would be used primarily/solely with a Teclast T-51 as the source. I don't want to look into getting an amp. These headphones will be solely for home-use. The style of music to be played will be varied, covering from Flamenco to Punk to Electronic to Jazz etc. Price range is around 100-300 dollars.

 

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Hmk, I posted a CAL! vs 668B question here yesterday, with the Creative costing 52 and the 668B costing 40-45 EURO. I found a shop nearby however that sells them at 25 euro, so it seems like an easy choice to go for the Superlux HD668B, right? I hope the bass isn't too lacking.

 

Argh, my 2nd piece in 3 days, can't wait :p From iBuds to 2 better choices in no time!

The HD598 is far, far more balanced.  With Grado's, the mids are bit recessed IMO, while the treble is extremely forward.  While with the HD598, the mids are very forward and the treble is recessed.

Hello Head-fi!


Looking to build my first home rig with a budget of $2000-$3000.  Have only tried IEMs (Westone 3, UM3X) and am currently satisfied using JH16s unamped out of an iphone 4 and macbook pro.  I mainly listen to EDM, trance, dubstep, house, progressive so I would like something that can handle the low and high end with ease.  I really like how the JH16s have that extra bass but doesnt overpower everything else.

Or should I ditch the home rig and get an amp for my JH16? lol

Any help would be appreciated

 

Cheers

I agree with this. I initially made a thread of my own because I didn't see this one, posted in here then though. Would be better if it was a sticky.

If you have any suggestions for on-ear headphones as well, those would be welcome, but otherwise, I think the MDR-EX600 may be a good choice. :) Thanks again!
 

 



Well hey, like I said, I was super unsure at first as well. In fact, now that I think about it, I have no idea how I made the leap to my Atrios...oh yeah, I think i thought of them as earbuds. !!! o.O hahah surprise when I had to stick them inside my head! But to be more direct in response to your question, if you are having trouble, I'd say yes, that's a result of just not having the 'knack' of it yet. Personally, I feel the same way about 'earbuds' et al -  they just kind of sit in my ear, perched precariously, sounding like crap, waiting to fall out. Can't stand it, haha. IEM's, in contrast, kind of become a part of your head, in a way, and when you have a good fit and a comfortable pair, disappear into your own personal music stream inside your body. It takes some experimentation with different tips and configurations, but I didn't find the learning curve very daunting and I have actually heard a bit of negative feedback on the difficulty of the fit on the Atrio that I started with (still don't know what that's about). 

 

Keep askin around about on-ear cans, cuz it's not my area of expertise, lol. Wait, I don't have an area of expertise. Haha. I would say look at Grado, though, as they generally have a pretty 'live' sound.

There are virtually NO stickies here and it is supremely difficult to find your way around...the search feature 'leaves something to be desired'. In fact, I'd go so far as to say the appreciation threads ought to have their own sub-forum.

Arghhhh, just got a call that the 25 euro HD668B is out of stock and takes months to come back. So, I'm gonna ask it once more.

 

Get a CAL! tomorrow for 52 euro, or wait untill 22th January and get the HD668B for 37 euro?

 

 

 

Greetz!

post #10724 of 29490

Oh well. Wanted something fast, and am in a money-spending addiction, so went for the CAL! :p Was sick of googling all night and not getting anything. It's here tomorrow, can't wait ^^

post #10725 of 29490

Didn't think I'd need a new thread for this so I apologize if this is the wrong place.

 

I want to understand how "open" are open headphones? I'm trying to decide between the Grado 225i or the Sennheiser H598, which I am told are both open backed. I'll be using my iPhone as the source, and will run through an E7 amp. I realize these won't do me too much good on a plane, but will I be able to listen to them if I am walking on a quiet suburban street or with my dog in a park?
