Check out the Panasonic HTf600 they have a great bass and soundstage without compromising too much clarity in the mids and highs. They are also only $30, so you can then pick up the velour pads for another $23, making the total around $53

I want that same kind of sound and performance - I have been told that is U sounding, and if true I would like that again again be ause I loved the sound. I'm just having such a hard time deciding. Any suggestions?

 

You will probably like the M50 then, although the Beyer is a better, albeit closed, can.

 

The Ultrasone adds the mids (as a bonus!), so it's an all around better can.

Which one of these would be better as a well rounded pair of headphones (music, movies, games)? And also which would benefit from my fiio e11, but at the same time do fine without it? Thx

 

The D2000 is closed.

 

The Q701 is excellent unless your a basshead.  I haven't heard the AD900, but I have heard and own a similar AT (but closed) can.  I can't recommend an AT based on that indirect experience.

A lot of people here really like the JVC too, but I have not had any personal experience. The HTF600 has a lot of bass, so if you don't consider yourself a basshead it might be a bit much. definitely search around the forum and look for threads about each one to see the strong and weak points of each

If you're looking for good bass, but in proportion to the mids and highs, it is difficult to beat the Superlux HD668B Dynamic Semi-Open Headphones, Samson SR850 Semi-Open Studio Reference Headphones and Koss ProDJ 100 in your price range.

Hey guys! I'm looking for an intro portable DAC for my computer. I've looked into a few but I honestly dont know what the difference will be unless I actually try it out. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm hoping to keep it under  $200. Thanks! =)

There won't be any difference worth mentioning between the DACs around that price range. Just choose the one that you can get for a good price or that looks good to you. Fiio E17 or Audioengine D2 will be more than good.

Hey everyone i was planning on buying some iems.  I saw the ATRIO ones and they seem to sound pretty good and im getting them for cheap so i plan on getting em.  but i have it narrowed down to 2 choices and they seem the same.  Does anyone know the difference between the 2?  Do they come with extra papers or anything at all? and do i need an amp to use these? im gonna be connecting them to my ipod.

Atrio M5's are solid IEM's, for sure. I'm not entirely sure on the difference between the two, other than one has a name attached to it. They don't need an amp, but they benefit greatly from one. I use mine with a Fiio E17. Needless to say, I love these headphones. Best $100 I've spent so far. 

 

Edit: Also, the colors make them look like toys, but the brown ones are as classy as you can get.~

Thanks! and does it matter what type of amp i get? what should i look for in a decent amp?

post #14624 of 29490
Ok, I just want to get something straight. Does an amp simply make the music louder and DACs improve SQ? Or do they both aim for better sound quality?

Any portable amp should power them fine. I've heard good things about it with the CmoyBB and some of the Fiio stuff. Here's a good place to learn a bit about the headphones and ideas on what amps to look into: http://www.head-fi.org/t/586322/future-sonics-atrio-mg7-review-and-appreciation-thread
