so its best u try it on. 

Most people switch those pads with the M50's and say it makes the sound better aswell. Or if you can put some cotton balls underneath the pad like this NightOwls Simple M50 mod

 

 

Also I am tempted to buy a "fun" sounding headphone with tons of bass, over-ear... Is there anything better than the Ultrasone HFI-580 for that price range? I already have an amp (Fiio E11) and some M50's but I just want my brain to shake >:)

I'm really interested in headphones with sub-bass does the pro 750 have good sub bass ?

post #20283 of 29490

Also, does anyone have thoughts on the V-MODA crossfade LP2s? I was just curious because I had heard that they were good for movies and games, and I wondered how they might fair with the kind of music I listen to.

Can't speak to the Pro750, but the Denon D2000 (assuming you can find one at a reasonable price) has tons of sub-bass and is reasonably balanced with a slight recession of the mids

Completely disregarding use as a monitor, what would you recommend for closed-back over-ear headphones? Again, I mostly listen to rock such as Cake and The Shins, but I listen to other genres too (recently I've really been into Ratatat.)

Thanks again

I would say the dt770. Better than average isolation. Great bass extension. Not bloated or flabby. Pretty bright in the high end. Was just listening to them an hour ago. They nearly sound open. Some people don't like the sparkle but that is also easily eq'd off if it is too much. Super comfy velour pads wont get sweaty for long use (like gaming). Respond really well if you want to boost the bass unlike some that get all loose and overpowering of everything else.

Those dt880 would suit your rock needs though just less bass emphasis but still good. Was once beyer's top model headphone. But they are semi open.

BTW katun is selling his k550s for $220 in the classified section.

You're saying this in regards to 10 being crystal clear and 1 being horribly muffled? Just clarifying, cause I said the opposite. In that case, at a 7 the HD598 isn't so bad. Though the Q701 clarity is really something to behold. 

Yes--but the scale is for cans about $500 and under.

In regards to Ultrasone, someone called MalVeauX pointed me toward the HFI 2400s. What's your take on those? If you've ever tried 'em

First the 2400 is open, but doesn't leak much.  It's very different from the Q701.  It's a fun slam/wall of sound can with strong bass, but far below the Q701 is clarity.  I found it to have a much smaller sound stage as well.

Yes--the 750 is OK, but the discontinued D2000 is/was king of the hill for sub bass.

currently having a K518. waiting for K619 to be released (and a little close to home). K267 is too far fetched judging from the price

am I making the right choice by waiting for K619? or should I pick another?

 

thanks :)

Closed, smallish over ear, and bassy--not especially neutral.  I'm not seeing how they are a top match for rock, movies and games.  Folks generally use them for a basshead lite can and/or for bass heavy music genres.

 

The M80 (the same price or cheaper at Amazon) is a better overall can.  See:

No one except an insider can tell you about a yet to be released can.  Beyond that, you need to state the sound signature you prefer or at least the types of music you'll be putting through these cans.  Based on what they are, I assume (am guessing) that you are playing them unamped from a basic portable device or devices of some kind.

Looking at the E10 it gets mixed reviews and one of the reviewers mentions it "makes the HD-598 sound a bit more muffled and something just sounds off."

in The FiiO range I'm also looking at the E7 and the E17.

 

I will mostly be using it off my laptop but i'd like to be able to plug it int my phone as well.

Any extra advice would be appreciated.

oh sorry, forgot to state so. I pretty much listen to all genres, maybe my least type is black metal (and other 'hardcore' metal genres).

my preference would be a good 'thick' bass without ruining the whole music, and I do consider my current k518 as good. But I would like an upgrade mainly because of the single sided cable

because it tangles a lot.

I have a FiiO E5 headphone amp, but I stopped using it because I frankly don't feel a lot of difference except the volume and the EQ. and I'm afraid that I'll lose it somewhere

Hey guys, I know there's an IEM advice thread, but I've used it before to only have a reply a few days later. This is a little urgent. So I'm searching for my perfect portable headphones, preferably to listen to rock or upbeat music in general for working out. I read a lot, then I decided to upgrade from my $10 Skullcandies to the RE-0. There are quite a few misleading threads out their how the E6 can help the RE-0 reach its potential. I really preferred it unamped because no matter the setting the E6 was at, it would degrade the RE-0's spectacular features- clarity and separation. I found myself mesmorized by how clear they were for an $80 IEM compared to my Denon D7000's. Sadly, the RE-0's weren't exciting at all. No head bobbing for my favorite songs, and I would like to feel the music in my ears like with a punchy bass.

So then I decided to try out VSonic's GR07. That's what I have right now, but I can't tell if I even like them or not because none of their 15 tips that come in the case seal my ears. I had to use one of the smallest tips from RE-0 to manage to fit my ears, and GR07's largest tips barely have any seal. I thought about purchasing foam comply, but it looks like one of the tips that come with are foam, and they don't fit. Do I have a serious problem here? I also purchased from Gateshop on Amazon, and there was a thread on this site where someone mentioned I could return them if there were problems.

 

Thanks in advance!
