FIGHT THE BEATS HYPE (Ultrasone HFI-580/HFI 580 appreciation thread) - Page 45

post #661 of 665

Just nabbed me a pair of these babies from a local store for $150 which seemed like a decent price. On my first listen boy was i impressed! I've tried many cans for hip hop over the years beats by dre, sync by 50, soul by ludacris, sol republic, monster plus many others and these surpass them all. Seeing as I've never heard Ultrasone cans before i played it safe and went for the cheaper model, if these keep impressing me i'm definitely going back to get a higher end model! A lot of the reviews say the s-logic takes some getting used to but personally it sounded fine from my first listen, a very nice, wide soundstage considering its a closed can. These german headphone companies keep impressing me over and over again!

Hi.

Has anyone tried to deepen the pads with tissue? It gives me better seal below my ear lobes.

What would have be the comfortable version of HFI 580? Asking about alternative with similiar sound quality but better comfort.

The only problem with comfort is the pad material. They are made of fake leather so they make your ears feel hot after a while (1hr~). The pads also contact your ears, which can get annoying. If you can find good replacements then comfort is a non-issue imo.

Clamping force is adequate. Not too clampy but good enough for portable use.

For those who are interested, Massdrop has these headphones going right now for 169.99, and down to 149.99 if 15 people buy in. They only ship to the USA though.
