Hows the price range on those 2?

post #7607 of 29490

Both the HD598 and HD25-1 II are around 180 to 200 dollars.

Amazon.com are selling them for $130 every time they have it in stock(not the third party sellers).

Back again, looking for headphones for metal \m/

 

I don't want the fatiguing highs of the Ultrasone hfi 780's, and i want everything to sound timbrally correct 

 

I want the bass kicks to "thud" and the snare hits to "snap", a very engaging phone, intimate, without fatiuging highs, and perhaps forward mids and forward low frequencies

 

Considering the HD 650 for a smoother sound, Denon AH-D2000 for a v-shaped but hopefully not too recessed in the mids and not too fatiguing in the highs

 

More bass is better than less bass, but if one headphone with less bass sounds more engaging like a stereo system, ill take that

 

budget $300, used or new

 

Nothing Grado. I don't want to listen to anything stabby or ear piercing, ive already had a bad experience.

These can be played in an ipod nano right?

You can cross the HD650s off your list. They're anything but 'engaging.'

Judging from the specs, they should be fine. You might have to turn the volume a little higher than you're used to, though.

That doesn't mean they're engaging. They have a very dark laid back sound. Thus non engaging.

Sorry, should have been more specific: I'm more specifically interested in open cans. I understand that for the price I'm not going to get fully what I want, and I've done some more research, so it seems I'm down to the Grado Sr80i or the Audio Technica AD-700. I've looked at the HD-555s as well but from reading around they don't seem well suited for metal.

I would avoid Grado if you want a balanced sound. They're very colored. I'd check out the Senn. HD 280...and or if you want a little more bass the MDR V6. Most people do love Grados for Metal, but they're by no means balanced.

Got home to find my HD598s waiting for and have been listening to them ever since. HOLY CRAP! These things sound amazing and have just the right amount of bass. Haven’t tested them with any games yet but I have no doubt in my mind these things will rock my world there too.

 

Gotta give a HUGE thank you to Armaegis once again.

You can get an adapter to plug the AD700 in smaller jacks. They're only a couple bucks from any electronics store.

 

As it is, sitting at 70% is perfectly fine for most applications.


thanks very much with your advice. i sold PC 333d after 2 hours when got Ad700. so now can't use it soundcard anymore. may be i'm getting Asus xonar U3. I just want more experience :D.

Easiest headphone to recommend on the planet for a reason.
