Can anyone compare the bass of G35 to hd 598, obviously senns are better but how much of a punch do they carry compared to this headset ?


The 598 has neutral-ish bass.  Have not heard your headset.  The 598 is not a can for bassheads of any stripe.

so bass on hd598 is decent, not weak ?

Yes.

 

The baseline for measuring bass (and mids & treble) is neutral--what was laid down in the track, neither enhanced nor recessed.

ok, thanks, i prefer music without much enhancements so i guess hd598 will be a good pick for games, rock/instrumental music ?

Yes--it's an excellent all-arrounder in its class.  I'm sure you know that is open and leaks sound.

Yep, I know it, thanks for the warning anyway :)

Hi I'm looking for headphones to really block out the sound while I study at school.

 

I've been looking at Bose QC15, Audio-Technica ATH-M50, Sennheiser HD-280 PRO.  I've read that active noise cancellation is best for humming droning noises, and not noises like talking.

 

I need it to block out all types of sounds. If possible I would like it to be not too bulky, because I have to carry it in my backpack so if it can fold up that would be a plus.  My price range is around 200.

 

Feel free to suggest any headphones if the ones I have been looking at are not worthy.

 

Thanks.

That is accurate about ANC - they'll block HVAC, fans, airplane cabin noise, etc but not barking dogs or yelling. The QC15 offer decent passive isolation as well, but you can spend less on the AE2 and get similar passive isolation (and more comfortable than M50).

You might also look at an IEM, which will offer a lot of passive isolation and be very portable.

Not really looking for something too neutral as I would just be using it to enjoy music but with the detail there so I don't want anything like beats that are far too bassy. Which would be better?

 

ATH M50

DT 770 Pro 250 Ohms

 

Comments would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Hi

 

The ATH M50 is 38 ohms and the DT 770 Pro is 25O Ohms. DT770's sound great I dont know how the ATH M50 sound but you will need an amp if you decide to buy the DT770's :)

I have never heard of IEM before, can you recommend some IEM for me please?

Say DTX910 vs. my HA-RX700's?

  • Beyerdynamic DT 770

The Sony is on there, but I'm a little hesitant that a $65 headphone is going to deliver what I'm looking for. Still, no color lines, right? I've also put the DT 770 on there just because I'm interested in the comparison. It's probably not what I'm looking for at all, but I figure I should expose my ears to everything I can to refine my tastes. If anyone can think of any other decently closed-back, neutral, and relatively airy cans to try, I'm all ears.

Alright, I just came back from trying the K550 and I really disliked them. When the highs and the treble hit, it was uncomfortable. They reminded me of a highly degraded Q701 (a can i really like). I'm not sure that's what I'm going for now.

I tried several others while I was out, one of them being the Sennheiser Momentum. I'm a little embarrassed to say I absolutely fell in love with the sound from them. The problem is I have no idea what that means. I thought I was looking for a neutral headphone, but maybe not? I have no idea how to classify the Momentum, but that's what I'm looking for. So why not just get the Momentums and be happy? I'll tell you I was close to, but a couple things stopped me. The ear cups are SOO small, the leather heated my ears quickly, the low impedence makes me worry about whether or not to amp them (they sounded great both unamped and with a FiiO E07K), and they have an on-line mic (takes away from the seriousness to me).

So a couple of questions. I know how it sounds to me, but how would an audiophile describe the Momentum's sound? What other cans can I look at that replicate this sound? When you see low impedence from a headphone like that, what are your thoughts on ampping?

This time I'm interested in flat/neutral and accurate/analytical sounding cans preferably for 300$ or less.
Open or closed doesn't really matter.
Any suggestions?

Definitely Shure 940's.

I think you're thinking about it too much. The Momentums are a good quality can that sound great and look great. Their only downfall is their sound stage is a bit small.

If you liked what you heard then get them and be happy cos you'll be less happy continually second guessing yourself about what headphones to buy id you've already heard a pair you like.

However I am having trouble getting the sound card to work with my computer. If I continue to struggle I will look to go down the portable amp route instead. 

 

So at this point I have two questions:

 

1) Was the shop right in recommending me the 250 ohms with regards to what they will be used for?

2) If I do decide to get a portable amp, what one should I go for? Will something like the FiiO E06 be okay?

 

Thanks

Anyone?
