Just got HFI-580s...defective??? - Page 3

post #31 of 35
Thread Starter 

Ok, I've got a serious problem.  I just can't stop.  I just ordered the Denon AH-D1100.  Going to compare them to the Crossfade and keep whichever one I like better.  I'd offer to review, but I have no clue what I'm talking about.  ;)

Thanks for the post. I was really into buying the DJ1s. But screw that. I think Ultrasone sound is crap for anything other than classical and nature sounds. They're really detailed but way too hyped in the mid highs and have recessed mids (Pro 900s, sold), almost making my ears bleed even after 200 hours. They just have very metallic high mids, which is pretty much a COMPLETE FAIL in terms of listening. I keep thinking to myself what the hell is the point of spending so much on headphones that give nothing but detailed ear torture. I am going for the DT770s and if those turn out bad, then the Sennheiser HD25, Sony XB700, or A&HXD53 should deliver. I have the Technics RPDH1200 but they are way too tight on the head after a couple hours, which is another fail. Though they do produce the most punchiest kicks I've heard so far and have a small room type of soundstage. Highs are recessed and the overall sound is colored, so they're only good for mixing. I wonder if I will go bald after wearing them for a long time.

I know you said that your budget is $120 but I recommend you save an extra $30 and buy the Ultrasone HFi-780. They are specifically tuned for movies and gaming. No amp required either. You might consider stretching them out over a box a night or two so they don't squeeze your head too hard. (If you you happen to have a larger head)



For drum players.. not bass players. That in-itself is telling of the type of bass your getting, rumble..-...punchy.

Id' leave it hooked up and playing overnight/for the day and see if it opens up. Although I will say that the hfi-580 doesn't have a big boomy bass in comparison to vmoda's crossfade lp2 for example. For me, the hfi-580 has a controlled punchy bass presence which isn't overwhelming; it'll also handle bass boosting such as through my e11. Comparatively, the lp2's hard hitting head shaking bass was the first thing that stood out to me about them (maybe a little exagerated but just to give the idea that there was a noticeably stronger bass).

If there's almost no bass presence, I wouldn't rule out the posibility of a defective unit. Try giving klaypex - sleep to dream, kanye west - love lockdown and avicii - levels a listen to see if the bass impact is there.

edit: Wait, old thread..
