Agreed. For running without an amp, the HFI-780 might be a better option.

Looking for headphones for hard rock/metal. A few example of bands i listen to: Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Judas Priest... I have a budget of 150 euro max, buying from amazon.de or ebay, unless someone knows any better European store. I want good sound stage. Pretty much everything is important because metal songs are complex. My setup is FLAC>Asus Xonar DG, i'll add a Fiio E7 soon.

 

Currently considering:

-AKG K240 MKII

-Beyerdynamic DT770/DT990

-Sony MDR-V6

-Fostex T50RP

 

Other recommendations are welcome.

In the event you want to adjust clamping, you can stretch or compress the headband without worrying about damaging the headphones since there is a metal strip that goes through the headband.

 

Ultrasones in general handle EDM and any bass emphasized genres very well, along with having quite a lot of clarity, with the models I suggested being more balanced and at the same time engaging.

I see. Do they isolate well? (compared to K550's) or are they closer to denon's 2k/5K/7K?

Also I found the K550 at 150€ whereas the cheapest PRO750's are at 240€. Is the price difference worth it? (sound quality being the only issue)

yeah.. they also chip quite easily

Still, the sound holds up and they don't fall from my head yet, so no harm done :-)

Hey everyone, Just wanted to say a big thank you for the advice people gave me. My HD598's just arrived, the bass for me is perfect, the sound clarity is amazing. I am delighted with my purchase. I cannot believe how clear every single different noise or instrument is. It is how music should be heard and appreciated. Thank you again for all your help, I really appreciate it!

Hello, first time posting here. I'm currently looking for a pair of closed headphones for my sister that are portable enough for college use and are able to isolate pretty well. The kind of music that she listens to include hip hop, electronic, techno and sometimes piano. The budget would be set at $100 and I'm willing to go a little over $100 but anything within the range would be preferable. She would probably use it with an iPod Classic.

 

Here are some current headphones that I'm considering, but I'm open to other suggestions:

 

- Shure SRH440

- Philips Uptown

 

 

Much thanks

Hi all, i'm currently looking for some headphones arround 80, max 100. I listen to all kinds of genres from drum and bass to rap, rock,...
I like bass, punchy but clarity is also very important.
Any recommandations? No in ear ones, I prefer arround the ear ones without an open back.
Thanks smily_headphones1.gif

Hello everyone, Greetings from Singapore! so recently my dad passed me his old set of Sonic Frontiers Ultrajitterbug and TransDAC. I have a Fiio e9 lying around so i decided to hook em up to my pc so it goes PC>Jitterbug>TransDac>Fiio e9. Im currently using a Sennheiser PC360 and was thinking if it would be advisable to get a HD650 or HD600 to couple with my current set up. I listen to many genres but more towards post rock and alternatives. Examples of some bands i listen to : Sigur Ros, Efterklang, Radiohead...

 

So my question would be:

1)Would a HD650/HD600 go well with my set up??

2)Am i doing it right with my set up??
 

 

Sorry for the terrible questions i'm really new to this, a thousand apologies :)

Hello, im actually asking for some advice for my girlfriend who unfortunately has hyperacusis (over sensitivity to high frequency) and tinnitus . My grados are too fatiguing and harsh for her and the treble is too bright for her to listen to even on very low volumes. 

Are there any good quality headphones out there that are known to have treble more suited to her needs? (any advice is appreciated). Looking for something in the $100-200 price range but the cheaper the better.

 

EDIT: seems like HD650 is the best option but i just can not afford to spend that much...and i hear they need to be amped.

I'm new to high-end headphones, and I need some help on which headphones to get smily_headphones1.gif
My birthday is in a few days, and i have been wanting to get some headphones for awhile now.
My budget is $100. (Or $110 on Amazon because i have a $10 giftcard.)

I have tried ATH M50's and DT 770 Pro's (My bothers have them) and I liked both sound wise. The M50's hurt my ears after a bit, and the 770's were super comfortable.

I will be using my laptop primarily (Asus G73JH) and sometimes my iPhone 4.
I would rather have closed, but open/semi-open are fine.
I listen to most types of music, except for country and dubstep.
I don't really have a sound preference, although i would like some bass, but not overwhelming.

I've been looking at the following, but i can't choose:

I just don't know what to get. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

I'd scratch the Grado and AD700 from your list.  Creative Aurvana Live is a good option to look at as well:

I think this would be the wrong thread to post in, you might get more answers in the computer audio section

Oh sorry it wasn't supposed to be posted yet, my sound card is from an imac mid 2011 and it is called "Cirrus Logic CS4206A (AB32)".

 

The question is:  If i change my audio quality to the best settings, will my computer be slower?

 

And also it says "Select the sample rate and bit depth to be used when running in shared mode" What is "Shared mode"? Thanks
