Ultrasone HFI-580 Pros and Cons?
Gear mentioned in this thread:post #2 of 56/26/12 at 2:47ampost #3 of 56/26/12 at 7:08amPros:
- Very tight and punchy bass which retains a lot of detail
- Energetic treble which suits genres like rock and electronic well
- S-Logic appears to enlarge soundstage a little (at least in my case)
- Top contender as a budget basshead's headphone
- Though bass is of extremely high quality, the quantity may not be enough for hardcore bassheads desensitized to bass
- Only comes in an annoyingly long cord (unless you purchase the DJ-1, same thing but with different designs and a coiled cord)
- Mids are subdued and laid backpost #4 of 56/26/12 at 12:20pmThread Starterpost #5 of 56/26/12 at 12:25pmQuote:
Vastly, VASTLY prefer the M50s over the HFI-580. The HFI-580 has a more imbalanced tonality, less comfort, less clarity, more sibilance, worse sub-bass extension, weird treble expression, weirdly shaped soundstage (probably due to their S-Logic).
