Fair enough. I'm guessing you listen to metal a lot?

I'm a metal head so yes. About 90% of my music falls under the metal category.

SR Grados?

 

HD598?

I don't think any of these:

 


Stax SR-X mk3

Audio Technica ATH-W11R

Audio Technica ATH-W11JPN

Audio Technica W2002

Audio Technica ATH-W1000

AKG K1000

AKG K501

Grado

Audio Technica ATH-AD2000

 

 

are midrangey, they all have heaps of treble.  Grado is the trebley-est of the trebley-est.  There really aren't that many midrange-centric headphones.  Most of the others are just neutral.  Like the T50rp isn't mirangey if it's modded properly.  In stock form I guess it is.

Grados have boosted upper mid-range, weak lower mid-range in comparison.

You're missing the Beyerdynamic DT48 and have the T50 and AD2000 on twice. wink_face.gif There's also the Hifiman HE500 (if it really has to focus on a frequency, it's the midrange) and might as well just put AKG K27X since the K270 and K271 are midrangey. 

 

I'll just make a list of stuff to add:

Beyerdynamic DT48/DT480

Hifiman HE500

AKG K27X

AKG K24X (K240, K242, and adds the DF and Sextett)

AKG K340 (And K4, but nobody has that except for like 4 of us here)

Koss KSC75

Audio Technica ATH-2 (actually...most planar magnetics are if they aren't trebly.)

Pioneer SE700, SE500

Basically any headphone I've tried from the 70's

 

Brainwavz M1

Brainwavz M3

MEElectronics A151

Yeah I guess I'd throw upper midrange peaks in with treble happy headphones.  Midrange centric headphones to me means emphasizing the whole vocal range or at least not de-emphasizing any part of it like Grado does.   Either neutral or a rainbow type curve.  I personally don't understand why there are so many smiley curves and so few rainbow curves.

Because smiley curves are happier than frowney curves, even if you call them rainbow curves...

 

And fair enough wrt grados.  I still think they're pretty mid-centric, though - to each their own.

Loudness curves, probably. Rainbows would sound terrible at low volume.

Keep it in the pony thread.

post #29 of 61

Well the balanced thread list the DT 880's but not the HD 650's, so I'll join this club instead. :P

 

HD 580/600's should probably be added.
