 Do contact lenses cost that much? ;)

post #33 of 186

Won't too many suggestions be overwhelming?

 

My top pick for youuuu is XB700

 

remember in the 90's they had that slogan "It's a Sony" well they took that away for a decade but it's back now they're latest stuff is really good.

not overwhelming at all - am happy to go off and google things!

 

Contact lenses wont solve the headaches i get from squeezey cans. cant take the grip on top my head, can't take any grip or pressure under my ears, cant take visegrip like pressure across my skull, and cant take having my ears smashed backwards over top my glasses pieces.

 

I told you i am a picky customer!

Bass-heavy headphones can become really annoying with just regular TV though.  The XB series is a bit of a niche headphone, and it doesn't really suit her musical tastes either.

Then what do you recommend, Mr. King of the Town Nr#1?

post #37 of 186

The point is it's the COMFIEST headphone LIKE YOU CAN SLEEP ON IT and bass response usually sounds very impressive to "novices" in the headphone world it's only when you get into high-end gear that you stop caring about the bass!

I also had behringer HPS5000 and got rid of because they were crushing my skull...

I'm honestly not sure what to recommend right now.  The comfort of the AD700 sounds just right, since they're light and don't clamp, but again, the sound issue comes up.  Headphones like the Shure SRH line will most likely not be comfortable for you, but the sound would be good.  Beyers are over budget. 

 

I'm not knowledgeable about all the cheaper Sennheiser models since I generally dislike their house sound, but maybe they have a cheap, comfortable model that someone else could recommend.

 

Have you tried bending back the metal wires on the Superlux pair to loosen the clamp at all?  I doubt that your husband would like that, but it could be an option if you like their sound and wanted a pair of your own.

 

Maybe someone could comment on the comfort of the JVC HARX900?

(sorry about how ADHD this post turned outtongue.gif)

Sound issue.... in the AD700? What sound issue?

 

I'll second your opinion that they're "light on the head" as AT's tend to follow that rule, and some people complain they don't CLAMP hard enough... i.e. they can fall off your head, not for dancing in.

 

I tried brushing my teeth in my AT's the other night and they almost fell off my head into the sink I do not recommend.

Sennheiser house sound sucks, the only good stuff coming out of Europe is Ultrasone and Jays.

not at all ADHD, very much appreciated!

 

i think the prob with the Superluxes is that they are just too big for my head. Even with them tightened all the way up, they press in under my ears and make my jaw ache, like i've been blowing up balloons.

 

I'm a normal sized female, a bit fluffy round the edges, but 5'1 and not huge in the bone department... i think my skull is actually just too small for the Superlux :/

I was trying to be a bit more diplomatic than that :P

 

I haven't heard the AD700s, but I do have the AD900, which are supposed to have more bass quantity/quality than the 700.  It's borderline deficient, which is just perfect for me, but I know a lot of people can't stand it.  It's just not a headphone that someone should purchase blindly.

quite like the look of the ultrasone HFI 15G ...

post #45 of 186

Yeah I dunno wassup with AT and their base.

 

I have the A2000X and it's "the ultimate perfect headphone" for me except I need more bass impact for certain kinds of music.
