Graphs only tell half the story. You have to listen to them and realize that there sound signature sounds totally different from each other. They even carry different dynamic drivers. The ones in the HP2011 are 50mm drivers, while the ones in the HF2010 are 53mm drivers. The HF2010 are warmer sounding and good soundstage, while the HP2011 sounds brighter and the soundstage is even wider. ;)

yes i know.

 

 

and they also have different impedance and almost same sensitivity

 

so the HP 2011 are easier to drive with low quality sources such as smartphones

 

 

i will go for the HP 2011 and i will tell you my thoughts.

 

 

as a beginner in the headphone realm treat me with respect :p

If your going to use the headphones for home or to travel, your best bet would be the ISK MDH9000. They fold in a compact way and are closed headphones. Good luck with your choices. :smile_phones:

I second that.

 

I've had 3 iterations of the basic ISK MDH9000 design, all of them excellent (gave 2 to family & friends / kept 1). As @1clearhead says, they fold readily, are closed back (good sound isolation), so they're quite doable for travel. I think this design looks straight-forward, not outlandish at all. The Marantz' are downright handsome IMO...also quite comfortable w/great earpads.

 

They also sound unusually good for inexpensive headphones. Great bass, sufficient detail, decent soundstage, not bright at all.The Marantz' are my favorite closed back HPs.

i am reading good stuff about them in the polish review. Also something to note

We noticed, however, that a straight cable has less resistance than twisted cable, which noticeably reflected in the quality of sound (less "Ω" the better):
⇒ simple - 0.9 Ω
⇒ twisted - 3.0 Ω

Therefore, we strongly recommend you only use the straight-through cable.

 

 

i searched about this thing here on head-fi and i could not find something wrong about this in terms of sounding.

 

Just that would put more stress on the source if you are not using an amp due to the overall increased impedance

can you please tell me the difference in sound in this particular instance? between the two included cables

The curled wire is for everyday use, while the straight wire is for more professional use like recording or studio purposes. You will notice the straight wire will make the sound signature more "fuller and stronger" when you go back and forth with the curled wire.

You can use one for home the other for travel. ;)
