FIGHT THE BEATS HYPE (Ultrasone HFI-580/HFI 580 appreciation thread) - Page 26

post #376 of 661

Just got my pair today, very excited - first serious buy only owned gaming headsets before, not sure if anyone has used them, but the bass on my old Steelseries Syberia V2's was insane (Head shaking bass), moved onto pair of Logitech G35's due to me getting through 3 pairs of Syberia V2's due to the bass breaking the drivers after a mere 2 months each time, Looking fowards to the 80th or so hours of burning my 580's in, good a pretty good tracklist for it too a bit of everything.

 

I am using Foobar to play my tracks through, using the CD icluded with a selection of tracks on also combined with my music, 190-320kbps my own compared to a massive 1440kbps on the CD haha, anyone got first time buyer suggestions, tips perhaps (Mainly going to be used for on the go playing out of my S-Ericsson phone.)

 

Also I've noticed a slight hissing being emmited from them when no music is playing, what is this?

I haven't noticed that. It might be your source.

Pluged straight into the audio jack in the front of my PC, 7.1 onboard soundcard.

I've got silence on mine from my onboard. Does it happen with any other headphones or audio devices?

post #380 of 661

It's nothing anoying, just slight feedback from the cans, really no problem at all, and no I only have these and my G35's which are USB.

How are these for rock (such as Sublime)?

Hello. I've been reading many threads about the 580 and I think these are just what I'm looking for. My only concern is bass quantity. I have Pro 900s and I'm looking for something with more of a boom/sub-bass rumble to complement the mid-bass punch. I've been told these have less sub-bass than the Pro 900.

 

Im looking for crisp, relatively bright headphones that have similar bass quantity to the LP2, XB500, and Pro700MK2. I really want that basshead bass fix that the Pro 900 didn't give me (with my current E5 amp). 

Would the 580s be on the same bass-heavy level as the cans 

mentioned above or would they be a notch lower? (I know the 580 would have the tightest bass)

 

Is there any basshead here that feels that 580 could use a bit more bass?

(I feel this way about the Pro 900 when they arent EQ'd and don't have a strong enough bass boost from the amp). 

 

Thanks.

Oh sorry, I forgot to add that I'm looking for a full-sized, portable can for under $300.

I briefly read about those. Oh, no...not another one to add to my list. blink.gif

Generally, everyone has said that these are a downgrade in every way. The mids are the Pro 900s are a bit more laid back, which helps provide for a seemingly wider soundstage.

I've been reading the cups on the HFi 580's are made of plastic? could someone clear this up for me? When its cold in my room, the cups are really cold compared to what I believe is plastic, giving me the impression they are made of metal.....

post #389 of 661

The round silver part where the drivers sit in are metal, but everything around it is plastic (durable plastic, that is).

post #390 of 661
Pretty sure its a thin layer of aluminium covering the plastic cups.
