I have been on here for about 3 weeks, im new to good quality headphones, so i have asked around on here for suggestions on what to buy based on my music and intened use. I really appriciate all your guys help, i have learned alot about sound and headphones, and didnt know music could sound this good, and hear things in music i didnt even know was there.
Now i have owned the Senheisser HD 558s, the AKG K550s, and the AKG Q701s, im finding it very hard to really get what i want as far as sound. It is kinda driving me crazy i dont want to keep buying pair after pair after pair. I started off wanting a set of headphones that were good for music and movies, thats seems pretty hard. I listen to stones, zepp, blondie, plimsouls, celine dion, etc.
The 3 sets of cans i have owned in 3 weeks, i think the K550s sound by far the best, but they fall off your head, they dont seal, great sound, horriable fit, the HD 558s sounded pretty good, but seemed to lack good bass, it seemed muddy, the Q701s i think are very boring, and way to neutral, the highs make me want to take them off in 10 mins, just a plain jane sound. I have given up on finding ones that sound good on movies and music, its hard enough to get the music part right. Now im at a loss, i need some more help so im hoping i can get it right this time. I love the sound of the K550s, wish they had a tad more bass, but very clean, beautiful overall sound, so i want something close to the K550s but with a touch more bass, but with a good comfortable fit. My budget is about $300.
I dont know if its possiable to get a set of cans that will excell in movies and music, so i think i may concentrate on music.
I would like you guys to suggest to me something i dont really need a amp to drive, im going to be running it most of the time off my X-FI Titanium sound card, but will probally buy a amp in the future, so based on what i have told you, please try to fit my taste, and thanks again for everybodys help.
