WORST headphone you ever heard? - Page 92  

post #1366 of 1513

I have basshead can - M Audio Q40, they are very good (for me :) )

post #1367 of 1513
Yeah.... Looking at that response chart, the JVC's have a lot more sub-bass, and bass in general. The q-40's probably sound better though. It doesn't have a thick fog of sub-bass blanketing everything. The JVC's get some detail if you shave away the bass with an eq though, but they are made for mindless head thumping fun when paired with an amp. They start jumping off your head with 5/8 volume on e11 amp, with bass boost on... Ridiculous bass pushers.

I think K240 is a class of its own and this is not the right place to post comment UNLESS it sounds bad to you,So does it sound bad or worst,to your ears?

He's just rambling about the K240's to himself.

I agree with all of those except dna's. Exceptional sound for a bassy can. A little bit similar in response to the m50's, except further recessed mids and treble... Now a truly terrible headphone imo is a lot of the cans made by skullcandy... Muddier Sound than the JVC's I have...

Wait until you hear the higher-end AKGs on a good system.

The DNA's response sounds spotty to me...if you know what I mean. You hear lows and highs here and there, and not much of the mids. If you're going to go Monster, you might as well opt for one that is amped. The Inspirations, although more expensive, sound better and IMO look better, too.

I love the sound of the akg k240's. I really am not going to buy a monster product anyways unless someone offers me a pair of n-tunes for 40-50$ or something.

I never liked the DNA much. It was far too warm and syrupy for my tastes, and on sound quality alone I would never have valued it at anything above $70. Its design is pretty good and build quality isn't terrible, but there's no way I'd pay anywhere near retail for a pair.

The sock buds that came with my Sansa Clip+. They make everything sound like any song from Killing Joke's "Hosannas from the basements of Hell", with heavy, muddy bass.

 

Why I tossed 'em aside and use Portapros with my Clip+.

Speaking of retail price, a couple of years ago I bought a pair of replica Beats Studio for $43 (and $16 postage via DHL) which was practically identical to the real thing. I then sold them for $200 as replicas.

 

If only the new Studios could be had for about $100. But then the whole financial status thing will all disappear.

Loaned my friend's ATH-M50 and I agree with you that they are no longer good for the price. A lot of better sounding headphone have been floating in the market and it's probably time for a change IMO. Nevertheless, they are not the worst headphone though.

I believe all of the above listed headphones would become a blessing to my ears when I was 12 and listened to music from $1 ear-buds. But it was the age when I didn't mind sound quality at all; it was the music itself and more importantly the feelings about it that mattered more.  I still remember how I loved Michael Jackson's songs and even danced to them with that terrible sound quality. Nowadays I have nice headphones, decent amp/dac, and flawless sources, which altogether give me sound quality that I could not even imagine in the past. However, they cannot gave me the feelings that I had about music when I was young. Michael Jackson still sounds good but I miss the one I was crazy about tens of years ago. And equally so, I miss my $1 ear-buds.

So I'm buying some stuff of of Evike and they have these in-ears that are Evike branded. The IEMs are usually $40 (IDK, why) and now they're on sale for a dollar. I'm just gonna throw 'me in my order just because. I'll update you guys if I get them.
