Hello guys! This is probably just my 2nd thread. So, I'm back to ask which of the above listed is better? Another one is do any of these(HD 518, HD 558. Don't think HFI 580 needs any AMP) need AMP? Currently, I'm using iPhone(original) & iPad2 for music. Was thinking of HD 439(refer to my last thread) but now maybe I need a home setup. I have my XBA 4 as portable...

 

From what I know, the HD 518 is the most bank for buck of all. HFI 580 is on the bass heavy side(Solid bass?). Btw, I'm looking for a natural sounding(Not sure if HFI 580 do the trick). 

 

Open for recommendation & sorry for bad English...

The Senn HD518 is the best choice for unamped source(s), like motherboard built in audio or unamped sound cards.

But as Apple products usually come with decent audio support, I would say go for the Senn HD558s

Not sure how the HFI580 compare to the Senn HD558s

So..HD 558 take over HD 518.. No amp required right?
post #5 of 5
are 518 and 558 comparable? or are they constructed for different genres..
please let me know,,, like I listen to pop, hip hop, rnb, rap ,country pop, which I should go for regardless of source device as (they both are 50 ohms )
I heard of 518 being bass heavy(which suites hip hop, but I listen to pop more ) than 558, but I have only owned one cheap denon d 310 headphone which is closed and bass oriented, but I realize I need more than just bass
I am a rookie so please provide me with a solid opinion
thanks in advance
