Pull the midrange up. You read my part about 1's and 0's? The data is there. You can tune the phones. You wanna spend 3 times as much instead of spending 4 hours of your life getting your pair just right? I dunno what to say to you.

So...I'll not say anything. Luckily I gotta work now (Japan time 3:30pm...kids classes smily_headphones1.gif )

I own the hfi 580's (got at 120$), and the signature djs (got at 700$), and the xb500's(got at 50$).

In my mind, the hfi 580s were worth almost 3x the xb500, as those were the headphones that made we go "woah, thats what music sounds like ._.". Made me REALLY get into this hobby. The signature djs? 6x the price? I would buy them for 10x the price and STILL view them as a good buy. No, its not 10x the sound quality but the percieved sense of realism, the pounding sensation i get from them, and that YESSS!!! Feeling all happen atleast 20x more, if not only happen with these. The happiness and immersion increase tenfold, is what i mean by 10x the price. Im sure others are similar. Every little inch of sonic improvement has a greater effect on some more than others....

So i understand where you are coming from, and until you have had a high quality pair of headphones, i mean really had a pair not just listened once or twice, im sure you would understand the difference.

Not trying to knock u in any way haha

- Past headphones include ATH-M50, V-Moda M100. Bass level should be around the same as the M100, maybe a bit less.

- I have a portable amp but I prefer to drive them directly from my iPod Classic

- I ordered the Monoprice 8320 for the timebeing, should get em sometime this week

- So far from my research, the VSonic GR07 Bass Edition, Wooduo 2, Yamaha EPH-100, and Shure SE215 seem to be the best

- What about the Klipsch x10, or Nuforce NE-700M?



 

I have heard the Sony XB700 Will blast cracks in you skull...
Might look into that?

You know nothing about me and you're assuming way too much. ;) I'm probably way more experienced at EQing than you as well. I'm used to tailor my previous headphones all with their very own custom curves for many years. Q40 is the first headphone that sounded so close to my ideal curve that I didn't have to EQ at all though. Besides this I'm EQing on a daily basis A/Bing differences of 0.1dB changes (I will only notice these differences while switching the values back n forth during playback so relax) since I'm mastering hardstyle tracks for newcomers as well as tuning pro tracks I'm not satisfied with. This includes tracks mastered by experienced producers with 10grand worth of equipment too (there's others which have confirmed what I'm doing actually sounds great so it's not only me living inside a bubble thinking I'm doing it well). I even know roughly whereabouts I need to EQ just listening to a track because I'm so familiar with how different frequency ranges sounds like.

The problem is the following; where do I get either a good software EQ that also affects WASAPI and is hasslefree to setup (in this case doesn't involve using VSTHost + VST EQ plugin) or a hardware EQ that is optimized for headphones connectivity & use with at least 31-bands or parametric EQ with custom amount filters. I don't want a Live PA targeted use EQ, I want one I could easily hook up to a soundcard or headphone amp (my headphone amp only got 3.5 mm stereo jacks) and is more the size of medium desktop amp or smaller.

Also you can't compare EQ'd vs EQ'd, headphones have to be compared stock vs stock for objectivity as not every1 accepts EQing or has access to it in all scenarios. Furthermore what's 20% improvement to an average Joe might be interpreted as 100% improvement for a headphone enthusiast (sloomingbla nailed it earlier), so how much it's worth paying is a subjective thing. Furthermore EQ's doesn't work perfect, the quality varies obviously from an EQ to EQ, not all EQ's sound equally good, yes that means similarly configured settings won't necessarily sound equally good on all EQ's. There's all kinds of issues that can arise with bad quality EQ's especially, phase shifting, frequency distortion etc.

My opinion still stands.

A lot of people don't like eq for headphones.. For some reason.

You guys ever looked into the Behringer ULTRACURVE?

The size and connectivity and overheating issue (most common RMA issue) turned me off, otherwise I would be interested. For me it would have to be an EQ I could leave on all day 24/7 without having to worry and that I can easily connect to stereo 3.5 mm jacks.

Read that again.

 

That's precious.  I might put it in my sig ... so 50% read it and think nothing and the other say..."dayum...that makes no sense??"

With the help of Pro's at my sponser I learned and became obsessed with fine tuning drivers. Spent weeks of my life learning the subtle effects of Humidity and outside Temperature on drivers. High humidity can cost you precious decibels. Finding the right note(s) is an art.

 

I had to do my slopes based on interior acoustics of a vehicle not a headphone cup. Sound Clarity evaluators listened and judged my efforts. Who judges yours? You?

 

An Audiophile is a person that can take good stuff and make it sound excellent. Everybody else is...kinda into music...maybe drains and strains their wallets. The D.I.Y section is where Audiophiles live not the $2000 Headphone appreciation threads. Don't forget that.

 

I have forgotten more than you will ever learn.

On a dual screen with Musicbee and VST plugins you can do tuning magic. I would never wanna live without my Electi-Q

LOL...You not knocking...I agree about the Hfi 580's so much I bought em.

 

This is all opinions. I enjoy tweaking. Because of that I know I can take recessed mids and make somebody not even notice em'. If the quality is sufficient you can make 500 dollar cans sound like ones 3x the price with sonic manipulation and maybe some can opening. I enjoy the whole thing.

Let's just agree on that we are very different persons. With what you wrote above I can see you're more of a subjectivist and I'm personally more of an objectivist type. Well subjectivist and objectivist isn't necessarily the right term to use (don't know what term would be correct or if it exists). Let me explain briefly:

Subjectivist: I think this and that, my preferences are the truth. I will defend my opinions against others who question my thoughts. Example quoting from your post:
 

Quote:
1. An Audiophile is a person that can take good stuff and make it sound excellent. 2. Everybody else is...kinda into music...maybe drains and strains their wallets. 3. The D.I.Y section is where Audiophiles live not the $2000 Headphone appreciation threads. Don't forget that.


1. No, there's no such rule, that is entirely your own opinion, there are audiophiles that are the exact opposite too that do not want to do any modding at all. Neither are more "correct" than the others.

2. It's a subjective thing, how much a difference in sound quality is worth paying for. The wording you did is a typical subjectivist viewpoint (again back to the, "I think this, my opinon is the truth"

3. There are people who spends 10.000+ on audio equipment who cares about sound quality that never mods their stuff. So those are no audiophiles? Audiophile != D.I.Y.

You happen to be a enthusiast D.I.Y.:er, that doesn't make you more audiophile than a person who isn't.

Objectivist: There exist this and that, option A isn't necessarily better than option B, there's measurable differences and they are these, it's up to you to decide what you prefer. 

I'd still be curious to hear some arguments why you think this and that, I gave my own arguments why I think like I do in the previous post. The only thing you did was to try make me look stupid. Also a typical subjectivist thing, I spend time in various forums and encounter this same kind of character a bit everywhere and seems like there's a common behavior. I don't like that behavior personally as the Internet would be a more friendly place if people tried to stay objective and don't take their own viewpoint in life as the truth and accept there are people with different views, and that your own view isn't necessarily always correct.

Can we agree that a comment correctly implying I don't know you followed by a implied superiority to me (You don't know me too) is not the best way to get someone engaged.

That prompted me to not read any further.

 

I later read and then screenshoted my VST plugins as a show of kindness because for all i know you don't have that running on your rig but might like to?

 

This is, assuming the quality of equipment is comparable...all opinion. I might sound like I thing otherwise but the industry is stuffed with offerings because consumers buy those offerings. My opinion is worth no more than yours and yours no more than mine. That line just made me shut down.

 

Do you run VST plugins?

post #9072 of 11259
Please guys, this is not a thread about who has the biggest e-peen. Take it to pms if you so desire. Back to WOBWOBWOB!
Awaiting on some Lawton angle pads v2, Alpha pads, jerg modulor pads, stock D2000 pads and Beyer Velours to do some modding testing and comparing against HM velour, pleather and Lawton Angle Pads V1 on my D2Ks HE400 and DT770. Time to decide which pads are best for a basshead =D

And yes, thats 300 worth of pads lol

This website isn't about auto sound. I honestly don't give a hoot about your car, and I'm tired of listening to you rant as if you have a lock on things, just because your car vibrates as it rolls down the street. So far you've succeeded in demonstrating an ability to criticize everything everyone else is saying. Wow. And somehow, money is no object because you own your own English school, but you object to the cost of a pair of cans? LOL. I call BS.

post #9075 of 11259

Yeah I'm sorry Hawaiibadboy. As a junior member on head-fi (which you are) you should not be ranting as much as you do! You won't score any cred-points with other members here by attacking senior member such as RPGWiZaRD (whom most of us in this thread are very familiar with and we know and respect his opinions). If you keep the comments up, red-flags will shortly start pouring over you and before you know it, your account will be banned! It has happened before! The bass-head club is a friendly place where we discuss bass accentuated or bass capable HEADPHONES! I really don't give much about what you've achieved with your car, sorry!
