Checking in on Head-fi very often now.  Very excited about these TV episodes....willing to watch this BEFORE any of my favorite TV series!  


HFI-580 brah, try it.

How are the HFI 780's compared the to 580's? Big improvement? More refinement?

the 780's hurt my ears, they had less bass, and a bigger hignend. it hurt.....

Never heard the 580s, but the 780s make any recording sound like its from an alternate dimension where everything is made of cymbals which are in turn made of more cymbals, ad infinium.  Even a woodwind will sound metallic.  The timbre is just atrocious.  It even noticeable on completely synthesized music.

 

The only real plus is that they don't sound closed in like your typical sealed 'phone.

that's a pretty good description of the 780's the 580's on the other hand sound nothing like that. They are MUCH more tame.

Wow your posts have really opened up my eyes (and saved my wallet!), thanks a lot for the replies. One more question: If I have the M50's is it worth it for me to go for some 580's? Is there a big change in sound sig? I've been really curious to try out an Ultrasone already. I tend to like an overall balanced sound - I appreciate good bass but not at the expense of the mids and the highs.

Cool, I might have to check out a pair.

If the 580s keep the good parts of the 780s they shouldn't sound as "closed-in" as the M50s.  IMO that was the M50s only real weakness.  I loved them otherwise.  Leaving out that one weakness I think they compete with stuff several times their price, but its hard to just ignore something like that so I eventually sold my pair

 

Of course don't let my opinion scare you off if you know you already happen to like a very bright sound.  I think the 780s are the brightest 'phones I can remember off hand.  They make the Beyer DT990s look tame.  If you don't like bright 'phones then by all means, be very afraid.  You'll hate the 780s if you want neutral or subdued highs.

+1 I'm really looking forward to the SRH 940 review as well. I'm considering the 940's as my next pair of headphones. L3000.gif
