EQ changes the soundstage on my PRO550 completely and everything sounds like they were moved 1 meter behind me.



About the same as I would listen to anything else. After listening more bass is really strong, but not overwhelming, great for drumming. Still need to fiddle with EQ, I'll do that eventually.

There's a subreddit for everything.

If you are using EQ, remember to turn the pre-amp section down, preferably 10db to be sure. Then increase the bass or what ever it is you want to increase. If you don't do that, you'll get more distortion then with the pre-amp turned down

"Unfortunately Amazon doesn't ship overseas due to warranty issues. I live in NZ so have similar local overpricing problems to you. As far as I can find the best Aussie headphone store is http://www.headphones.com.au/ , and they also have really helpful forums. Other options are to order from online stores based in Asia (eg Audiocubes, Pricejapan) - these usually have some quite reasonable pricing for Audio-Technica, Sony, Denon and other Japanese headphones, and shipping to Australia is good. Make sure to google for seller feedback before going this route - some stores are dodgy. These is one store in NZ that had some very good prices for Ultrasones - but I think I bought their last 580! They still have some 780s for NZ$255, but not sure they would ship to Aus (http://www.audioreference.co.nz/category/headphones). Good luck in your search."

 

Do you know if it is a website that can be trusted? do they sell original products??

The OP has already bought a 580 from Amazon and a E7 from headphonics.
