I am about to buy my first mid-fi quality hp, I didnt use before any mid-fi range hp, but I listen a demo in a store, Sennheisers hd439 - hd449 didnt like, and I listen sennheiser hd598 - hd558 with a very good equipment setup and source was the sennheisers demo vinyl. I couldnt really impressed with these too.
Actually I am using a stereo speaker system in my room, technics suv620 stereo amp-bose401s-definitive technology prosub800. I am very happy with the bose401s sound signature, natural energetic, very large soundstage, good imaging, and sometimes couldnt recognize where the sound comes from.
SO, I want a headphone with a good soundstage and imaging(specially for gaming and movies), good bass, natural and detailed sound.
Sennheisers sounds like a bit bright to me, and I feel I am in a studio and listening the music from studio monitors.
I am using Soundmagic PL50 armature headphones for portable music, I am very happy with them, but some +bass over PL50 will be the headphone I ever wanted.
I always cant decide quick, please help, I made a list, but it is not that much important, you can advice freely.
- Sony XB700 ( I like bass)
- Fostex t50rp - ( is this sounds like sounmagicPL50? )
- Sennheiser HD598 ( this have soundstage )
- Ultrasones? (s-logic?)
I need serious help friends.
