What about the Ultrasones hfi 580? Would they sound good without any amp. Was reading a thread about them and they seem to fit my taste. What's the difference between the Ultrasone 580 and 780. Also has anyone else tried the Sens hd 380 and find them boring. Or is it just me:/

The Panasonics are a bit out of my budget, but thanks for the suggestion.


As I said i havent heard them but heres a comprehensive review from      keanex: http://www.head-fi.org/t/577979/review-superlux-hd661-superlux-did-it-again

The 580 is a basshead can and would work fine without an amp.

 

From one of the buying guides linked in the opening post of this thread:

 

"Ultrasone HFI-580, $120-$190. Folds for portability, good build quality, and decent isolation. Fun, clean, V shaped sound. Deep punchy clean bass, slightly recessed mids, bright, sometimes fatiguing, highs. Some sibilance."

 

"Ultrasone HFI-780, $155-$250. Good isolation, iffy build quality, easy to drive. Strong clear bass, slightly forward mids, bright highs."

Are you OK with open cans (they leak sound)?

 

What equipment will be powering these cans?  Will you be using an amp?

 

What is the format of your music and other sounds you will putting into these cans?

 

Describe the sound signature that you are seeking?

 

Do you plan to use them outside your home?  If so, in what way & with what equipment?

What equipment will be powering these cans? iPod Touch or Laptop Will you be using an amp? No



What is the format of your music and other sounds you will putting  into these cans? Mostly Alac and aac



Describe the sound signature that you are seeking? I'm a bit of a basshead, but I like clear mids and highs



Do you plan to use them outside your home?  Rarely if ever.   If so, in what way & with what equipment? Riding in a car connected to my ipod.

After some searching I found the Superlux HD662. I only can get the the regular 662 from amazon co uk. How do these compare to the HD661?
After looking at the fr graph they have more bass I guess. Havent found any comparison of these two.

Ipad+ fiio e7 would it work?
post #18293 of 29490

The 840's are a little bit over my price range, would a 440 and an e6 amp be a good alternative? im not sure if the 440's are as good as the 840 for classical/instrumental and jazz. if not is there an alternative? if the 840's are worth the money i dont mind buying them since they are very well reviewed

 

EDIT: How do the ultrasone hfi-580 match up to what im looking for?

OK

I finally bought the Grado SR80i

They're on their way and I'm quite excited but... I am curious about something.

 

I am going ot use this headphones with my iPod (I'll buy another pair of closed cans for gaming... when money is available hehe) but I am wondering. Do I need an amp to enjoy the music in my iPod or will the SR80i do their magic without the amp?

 

Thanx in advance :)

Awesome, Thank you very much!

I've been considering getting new headphones primarily for gaming but also for general listening. From what I've been reading the HM5 and KNS8400 good sound stage for closed headphones, but I'm also looking into the AD700s, which seem highly regarded for gaming. I'm wondering about whether the sound stage of the closed options is good enough to compete with the likes of the AD700, or if the AD700 or similar open options are the obvious choice here.

Greetings!

 

Long story short, I owned the HD 555's for about a year and a half and loved them until my bunny destroyed the cord and I decided to gift them to someone and try a bit of an upgrade. I have a budget of $250, and was looking at the HD 558/598, but was mainly wondering whether the 598s are "worth" the $70 price increase. Also briefly considered something like the HE-300, but I don't know. I don't have an amp and will be listening through my desktop's motherboard. I listen to almost exclusively Vocaloid music (for example, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ba1vgZRT2K4 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wf4D6e11omU), and a select few English artists like the Script and One Republic. Are there better headphones for these kinds of music in this price range? Would also be a plus if they're decent for gaming. Also willing to consider an entry level headphone/amp combo if it's under $250.

 

Thanks kindly!

Have you read the gaming guide that is linked in the opening post of this thread?

 

BTW:

 

What equipment will be powering these cans?  Will you be using an amp?

 

What is the format of your music and other sounds you will putting into these cans?

 

Describe the sound signature that you are seeking?

 

What music genres do you plan run through these cans?
