daleb, what kind of dubstep are you listening to when you say they have more mids and treble than bass?

post #6587 of 8319

How are these for FPS gaming?

As good as any other closed headphone is for FPS... Probably not comfortable for long sessions of pwning n00bs though. biggrin.gif

I've recently beaten Metro LL with these on my head all the time and it was fantastic. Directional cues were more or less on the same level as the HD555, but with a much better overall sound. I find the bass on these cans to be very powerful, but not too disturbing and it won't get in the way at all.

So, I spent a couple days with hm5 pads on on s500's and came to the conclusion that I should never have bothered.


I figured the increase in comfort would compensate for the lack of bass but It goes beyond lack of bass in my opinion. I just felt that they were trying too hard to get the job done for anything fast and the 'punch' was gone.

 

I wasn't able to get a good seal on my head, that definitely was a main problem.

While the hm5's are super comfortable they just don't do the job properly (for me).

You should try the WS55 pads mate.

They are on ear and should work better for you.

May have to try that, I suppose stick with on ear if you want that nice full sound.

Well, and not necessarily.

It all depends on your head size and ear shape.

I haven't tried the HM5 pads myself simply because it defeats the portable purpose of the S500. Even though I actually bought the HM5s this month.

Well then someone needs to try my double stuffed mod. It will make your S500s go KaBOOOOOOOM!!! Best soundstage and bass quality i have heard from my S500s to date. L3000.gif

I was wondering because you can never listen to dubstep properly without the prominent presence of bass. It's like a chocolate chip cookie without the chocolate chips.

I saw that after I already screwed my pads up with glue... Fml mad.gif

 

I did it the opposite way and it sucked, I fail.

Yeah it's never wise to glue pads together. LoL Unless your mod is finalized/ set in stone but still i would never use glue..... rolleyes.gif You can still stuff the stock pads if you cut open the driver cover fabric of those HM5 pads. haha It will look ugly cuz you will see the stock pads but hey you gotta do whatcha gotta do.

Ugh... Every popular kind.

Please, go open up even a skrillex song in a frequency response chart. Dubstep is treble heavy.

Just please... This is so silly having to deal with this when all it takes is a single spectrum analysis of a dubstep song to know its true.

 

Plus, remember I am a musician. I don't enjoy music the way most people do. Overly prominent bass gets in the way of the notes and production.
