WORST headphone you ever heard? - Page 85  

post #1261 of 1513

Figured I'd stir the pot here by not mentioning the obvious cheapies.

 

Grado RS1i

 

I couldn't believe what I was hearing after so much hype. If I was given a pair for free I'd sell them to the first bidder.

^^^ I can't imagine how you'd react to the SR325i. I thought the RS1i was kind of warm in comparison.

 

Not the "worst" but the headphone that I got rid of fastest was the Mikros 90. It took me 3 hours to decide to send it back.

The original bose in ear style earphones. So much bass it was gross

So I take it that the bass was muddy?... Plus this isn't the worst headphones I've heard, but the worst sound I've heard. I was creating some melodies on a synth and I dragged the wrong slider... It sounded like a car crash, that hit a girl scraping her nails on a chalkboard while a guy was scratching silverware on a piece of glass, and all the while a scratchy high note was creating dissonance with a bass tone... So basically, ear rape... I would not wish that noise on anyone ever. That was HORRIDLY GHASTLY sounding...

How anyone can be expected to watch a movie with those and understand what they're saying is a mystery.

Really? Jeez. I think I can understand why people like them, but WOW there was just NO bass to the things under 100Hz.

I've really wanted to try Flat pads on any Grado. They're supposed to help increase bass, but yeah, none of the Grados I've tried (save the PS500) had much bass with bowl pads, which I guess is the point of them.

What didn't you like about the M90?

Haha, you're gonna excite the Mikros Occult Group, be careful :D

The upper mids were even harsher than anything AKG or Grado could ever think of. They weren't /bad/ but I'd rather put the $90 that I paid towards something that'd actually get use.

Is it mix/mastered correctly, or is the slider still sitting up at the top?
post #1273 of 1513
Well, when I say "Ear raping Song", it probably means its not mastered correctly. I can send some of my actual songs to you if you pm me your email, or you could download them off of Soundcloud @DisCHORDDubstep

For me it was the Ultrasone HFI-780.  I tried and tried and tried to like these.  But ultimately I ended up hating them.  The harshness of the metallic-sounding treble just kills me.  You know its bad when I turned to my SR-60's for a smoother sound.

Checked out your Soundcloud. Do you make your own samples (synths, basslines, etc.)?
