You may want to have a look at the Ultrasone pro 900 for EDM, though they're not really versatile.

Do they sound anything like the Ultrasone Pro 750's? I've auditioned those and I didn't like them TBH. They sounded very 'low fi' compared to HE-400. I know it's not fair to compare them since one is closed back and the other is an open back, but the 750's had too much one-noted muddy bass and sounded congested  compared to HE-400 IMO.

Precisely. It makes way more sense just to EQ up HE400's bass for EDM, than to buy something that is inferior in literally every aspect.

They sound similar but with stronger bass. I wasn't too fond of them but they sure do stuff like EDM unlike other phones. It's just that they are really limited with other types of music.

 

I personally have a pair of ATH-ES10's for my portable rig that also do EDM very well while being more versatile. They aren't too popular due to availability but they have really surprised me with their big sound for their size, tight impactful bass with great extension, sweet mids and open highs. They certainly have the wow factor. I've had them for just over a week and I'm totally hooked.

Something worth noting for EDM while not costing a ton: JVC HA-S500. $60, a few easy mods (check the threads) and you have something that does well for the price.

How would you compare them to the HE-400's?

What is "ringing." Can't find the definition anywhere

Ringing is the result of a certain frequency resonating in the cups/drivers. On a CSD plot, it will look like a ridge.

What Thujone said - also, think of a large bell ringing (if you've ever heard one up close)...you can hear the sound resonating in the chamber for a period after you strike it.  In the case for certain headphones, the chamber between your ear an the driver can cause resonance at certain frequencies mostly depending on pad or cup material.

Good way to put it

 

also any one have any suggestions on a Closed Headphone that sounds simmilar to the HE 400 [sound stage and Flat bass response]

 

I'm thinking D2 or D5k, might look into what ever mods are nessicary for both

I found a lot of similarities between the HE-400 and Mad Dogs 3.2 besides the treble.

post #13467 of 19921

Thanks so much gentlemen (or women). 

 

How would these babies compare to the T1? It's kinda the only dynamic I'm considering 4 future, I'm pretty hooked on this planar sound bc of the BASS mmmmhmm

post #13468 of 19921

If you have issues with the HE-400 treble, I think it's safe to say that you should steer clear of the T1 (based on plots).

Ahh but with what pads? I found the HE 400 with the Stock Pleathers to sound like the Mad Dog 3.2 did... to thick for my tastes... and the Mad Dog which had great bass, was WAY to thick in the mids for my tastes... after a week I sold it

 

The AD might be worth looking into but... at that price... maybe not

I really enjoyed the T1 what little I listened to it, but it does have some tizziness just like the HE-400 in the treble.
