i have yet to hear of fakes of the HFI 580's on ebay. if they are an authorized and stared member and the price is $100+then it's legit. any lower than you might be wondering if it is...i might just wait for it to be back in stock. BH is way safer. and i think it's out of stock bc of me lolz jk...but maybe. this review is the first review to show up whenever you search these headphnoes up, and i've led many newbies to the HFI 580's. not to mention i got friends to buy 3 pairs a week ago....ill take some credit for this outage :)

 

1000 views of this thread in 3 days isn't bad in my opinion :)

No, not bad at all :)  but not very good timing for me :(  I think I'll wait then but... I don't know if I have the patience...

You could try e-bay. But patience is needed in audiophile in case you don't like them and need to return :O It's good to know that i might have had at least some influence on them being out of stock as i post the link or tell everyone that wants bassy headphones to the BH website :)

 

im not sure if you said you had an amp? do you need one or need help with finding the one for you?

you're welcome, but remember. the first 10-15 hours don't sound good at all. after that. they will have this little up and down slope of good and bad. the majrotiy of that time will be good. but there will be times of the day when it starts to sound thin again.. doesn't happen too often. :)

 

Don't be SHY! Commenting on this review is extremely welcome! it doesn't matter if nobody has commented for weeks or months >_<

I had the 580's for a few days.  They were horrible fresh out of the box.  After burning them in continuously for a couple of days, they got much better...sounded great except for the "shrill" up top.  People say that that goes away after a hundred hours or so, and I have to believe that's probably true because there are so many satisfied customers.  I don't think it gets any better for < $120.  However, after buying a couple of used cans here in the classifieds and seeing how well (most) people take care of their stuff, I can confidently recommend buying something used as a valid option.  I picked up a pair of D2000's for $200.  I remember seeing a beautiful pair of (premium) DT 770's for $150.  My point is that if you're not happy with the 580's for any reason, it's not over...you truly do have other options.

Ultrasones do have an abnormally long burn-in period... but they had the most discernible improvements out of my headphone collection.

I think 100 hours max for HFi580 not like the 300+ hours that i hear sometimes. More than 200 hours its not a burn-in but usury (?).

 

Even though I believe in the burn-in, HFi580, imo, need much less burn-in than some pro version with titanium drivers, like pro750/900/2900...

Got Ultrasone DJ1 Pro. In the way of electro sound Pro is more closed to the philosophy of this music than the Pro 2500 IMO. Much more warming chaotic electronic waves.

yeah i noticed. but after about 150hours. the changes are smaller. but still there.

oo and thanks crinacle for the review. you were one of the 3 580 reviews on head fi and was crucial in my descision to buy them as you compared them well to other well known and considered cans :)

flat? elaborate. flat as in neutral? not as sparky, bright, not enough thumph? I've had up and down periods with my HFI with the highs. very slight but noticeable oens if you paid attention. last week. Time by Pink Floyd was fantastic. Rolling in the deep's highs were lucious. today they aren't quite as lush but still up there.

post #75 of 101

Wow these sound really good, I can't wait to order them. They will be my first pair of high quality headphones. Hey, I would like an amp, would you reccomend one in a novice/low price range. Something cost effective without sacrificing a bunch of quality?

 

In fact my dad has a stereo amp left over from when he used to work for an electronics store back in the 80s. It's a pioneer sa-730 stereo amp with a headphone jack. Does that sound like a good idea? I also have a fender 15G frontman guitar amp haha. Tonnes of amps none for headphones.

 

Great review by the way tongue_smile.gif
