oh man thats awesome.. did utry it with ipod>lod>e5>pro750?

 

 

yea man ill return these for sure and just get brand new ones >.< im regretting not buying brand new ones instead...


why do mine distort so much. i love them they look good and sound really good but i cannot stand the distortion. i am not using an amp or dac. and the beats pros didn't distort so i highly doubt its because it can't be driven. did i get a dud. i used my pioneer se m390 the other day and they cost $70 and they didn't distort as much but still did distort to much. and they sounded very muddy but still sounded much better then the shures distortion wise. wtf is going on here. the shures cost 2x the price. why is it so hard to find a pair of headphones that do not distort. my logitech speakers which cost $30 don't distort. i thought headphones were the cheaper way to get higher end audio. please tell me if it happens to you. does it distort without an amp. and if so did an amp fix it. please help me i dont want to have to get rid of these. as i cannot bring them back to the store. i just want to have a distortionless music experience.

for those wondering i'm listening to rock and metal. and don't say its the music i listen to as electronic techno/trance does it to. especially on the high pitched vocals or guitars.


ohhman i dont know about that, itried the broken 750s, they werent distorting... the L side "only working part" sounded really clear but i had to max my ipod's volume >.<



I also didn't have distorting issues EXCEPT for low bitrate songs. What is your source raptor, and kbps of your songs?

my source in an ipod classic and my mp3 bitrate is 320kbps.

Now that is weird. It's not like "320kbps" ripped from a burnt cd of "128kbps" songs.. right? (On a friends pc at 128kbps, get burnt by a friend to a disk, you rip at 320kbps - useless).

 

Other than that I really don't know. Mine work with my iPhone with no distortion. Some of the crappy 96kbps songs from like grade 4 sound rubbish, but even the 128kbps don't sound too bad on them (though obviously less enjoyable).

does anyone know how good shure customer support and warrenty support is.

OK i am going to say it bluntly. the distortion is driving me nuts and i feel these headphones suck. maybe i am just hard to be pleased but any distortion at all is stupid. it has been distorting since i got it and i thought it needed burn in. so i let it burn in and i feel its even worse then it was before. are you sure you don't use an amp with these because without one they sound utterly barbaric. if you don't stop me i am willing to splurge on Bose or monster as i have heard them and they don't distort. sometimes i feel as though my ibuds sound better then these as these distort to much. i am willing to give up high end audio and i am starting to believe headphones are a waste of time. these headphones sound amazing when they don't distort but distortion kills it. like i said i just want a pair of headphones that do not distort. why is that so hard to ask. i do believe distort and clipping is the same thing. if not i hear to much clipping. and these tend to make instruments have a squeaky sound. i do not know if they are supposed to or not. but i am fed up with distortion and clipping. i just want a clear set of headphones. i don't have problems understanding the vocals with these but the vocals and instruments distort. why does this happen. please i cannot return this anymore. I'm starting to think maybe i should have just got the beats i originally wanted. i don't know if i love the sound these produce or if i just say i do because everyone else does. have you guys ever thought that maybe we take other peoples opinions to seriously. but in terms of clarity these are amazing but the distortion makes me want to take them off my head and through them off a cliff. i have yet to find a pair of headphones that cost more then $50 that do not distort. and for some reason iems and ear buds do not distort that much no matter how much they cost. i feel as though these are giving me more problems then benefits. thanks to these i know my laptop has the worst sound card imaginable. i wish i knew that when i bought it because i usually just listen to music on a computer. it makes my computer rather useless. i love high end audio but i am starting to believe that it is a scam and the more money you spend the more likely it is to distort or something. over sound quality improved but distortion gets worse. i would have no problem with it if i could get an amp or dac easily but i live in Canada and it is extremely hard to get an amp/dac. god i hate this country. i wish i lived in the USA.

it distorts the same as a flac file of the same song does.

@bcasey - ok, just pause for a sec. You may well have a dud. There are always going to be some screw ups in manufacturing lines.

 

Contact Shure and explain the situation. Presuming that you're still in warranty, then they will cover defects!

 

I'm going to tell you - my 750djs do NOT distort listening to my ipod or macbook pro - using my fiio e5 or not. I mean that one youtube video did, but that's all I've seen do that.

 

 

Just go through the warranty process and see if it's any better. If it's not then move on to a different phone if you choose that to be the right option. If you do then why not try the ATH-M50s? I mean they're going to be better than the Beats (Studios and Solos at least) and they're only $150 or so. But still - just figure out if you have a workmanship error or not first.

my description of distortion and yours may differ a little. in that case i am pretty confident mine is not a dud. i tend to listen to it loud and i only hear the distortion when i go past 65% on my ipod classic volume. it just frustrates me because apparently they are supposed to get loud without distorting.

That sounds a lot like you need an amp. You're pulling too much from your iPod so it's pathetically spitting out what little it has to offer. I mean if I were in your case I'd probably try to find a smaller amp - like an e5, or build a cmoy. I mean it's another ~$20 vs. spending $350 on Beats.

post #43 of 215

LOL. I almost bought these headphones instead of the M50s almost based solely on bcasey25raptor's persistent praise of them...now here he is saying they suck.

 

I hope you get it sorted. My first step in troubleshooting personally would be to try a different source.

there good headphones just need an amp i guess. there good if you dont listen to music at higher then 70% that being said only if you are using an ipod or computer. i never said they suck i just said they tend to distort through my source though i didn't know why. but i guess i will get an e5. as its only $20. im pretty sure the m50s need an amp to. according to what i have heard they have a rating of 96db rather then the 106db the shures 750s have. if i hated them i wouldn't have started this thread. i personally think i over reacted. i still highly recommend the headphones just remember to get an amp.

and i didn't mention but i tried a 10 year old computer with intel integrated audio and it sounded much better. i think the laptop i own and my ipod just has terrible sound quality. because ironically my pioneer sem390 headphones don't display as much of the faults in my system as my shures. hence the reason i prefer to listen to them sometimes.
