I know that Beats by Dre are not highly thought of, but what about Soul by Ludacris headphones?  I have seen a few reviews that consider the Soul SL150 competitive with similar headphones from other companies.

Hey everyone,

 

Been having a difficult time choosing between the KNS 8400 and SRH 840 because I've been reading reviews about both of them. And sometimes the opinions can be very opposing and almost contradicting one another. For example, a few have commented that the KRKs bass is decent while another says they are very light. (Also worth mentioning, the not so strong isolation on these headphones as well.) On the other hand, one has also mentioned that the Shure's have a mid-bass hump making the bass sometimes sound more than they are laid out on the recording. And so, I'm not sure which direction to go on this.

 

On another note, would IEMs be better for me? (I have yet to get used to the feeling of them in my ear...)

 

Edit: From what I've read so far, is it safe to say that the Shure's are a neutral/balanced headphone that have a little more of a colored bass? Correct me if I'm wrong...

I heard them both next to each other same thing. They did just release a wholew new lineup they look allot tougher and nicer.

The m50 is considering bass heavy by most. Not quite a basshead can, but basshead-lite is not uncommon.

they all are considerably neutral headphones and roughly in the same price bracket.. Has anyone ever compared them? which one is a better value for what they worth? looking for a neutral sounding cans. tried the SRH440 it's nice sounding, nice energy, and dry.. but never heard of the other two...

 

 

cheers,


They're all good--or better than good.  In large part selection among them will turn on price, intended use and other preferences such as size and/or need for detachable cable.

You have to be giving them to her to have a reasonable chance to "score".

The part about the bass response of M50 as being "minimal" is flat out incorrect.  While it is true that the enhanced level of bass of the M50 does not put them into true basshead territory, it makes them popular among many who prefer a bass heavy sound.  Their bass is a long way from neutral--and clearly not on the recessed side of the line.

Would a pair of dt770/80 darth beyers REQUIRE an amp to sound good? Just wanted some input, thanks in advance.
post #18058 of 29490

Hello Head-Fiers, I've been looking at the Panasonic HTF-600s for a while now beacuse I'm interested in a nice bassy (yet clear) sounding pair of over-ears. I listen to Alot of electronic music like Porter Robinson and Knife Party so I really like that low vibrating sub bass. Are the 600s the right choice? or is there something better. My budget is very limited so the cheaper the the better. Let me know what you think.

They'd play without one.
However they would be very quiet and probably wouldn't sound good.

80ohms isn't that much though, even a cheap portable amp like the fiio E6 would be enough to make them sound good.

The HTF600 is a great choice as long as you don't mind some sound leaking out as they aren't true closed headphones. For the budget bass lover these are one of, if not, the best If you get these, look up some of the mods which will further improve the sound. A must is the paper towel mod which is done in about 30 seconds and can be undone even quicker.
