ATH M50, ATH-PRO700MK2,V-moda crossfade lp2, or the ultrasone 580/780?

I listen to primarily House, dubstep, drum and bass, techno, and electronica. I'm quite a bass head, but after using my current headphones, the sony xb 500, I've decided I want cleaner bass, and warm mids and highs. Can I hear some opinions for all these?

Hear are some examples of the kind of music I listen to:

Heya,

 

All of them are going to have less bass, but much better mids and treble.

 

Can you describe what you're looking for more specifically in the mids & treble?

 

I would say go for the HFI580 or the PRO700MKII.

 

Very best,

I'm new to Head-fi, and I lack the correct knowledge of the terminology to quite explain what I'm looking for. Basically sony xb-500s have decent bass, but extremely recessed mids and highs. I would like to have Quality, tight, accurate bass, but at the same time have mids that sound non-recessed with highs that are I guess shiny would be the word for it.

Look into the Ultrasone HFI-580, they have quite better bass quality, not bleeding into the rest of the frequency range. The ATH-PRO700MK2 have more emphasized bass than the HFI-580, but it's of lower quality when compared to Ultrasones, and the rest of the frequency range isn't that great, in all honesty.

 

EDIT: You're not supposed to bump threads with such short time frames, wait 24 hours between bumps or add constructive information to an additional post.

would you say the 780s are better?

Yes, the HFI-780 are technically better headphones, but you might find the HFI-580's stronger bass presence more pleasant.

What about those ultrasones vs the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO?
post #10 of 14

I find the DT770 to be both darker sounding and less detailed.

Hmm we'll I think I'll have to stick with the ultrasone's. but since I'm using them primarily for portable use I think I may either get the dj 1 or the 780s.

Even though I know you're saying it in comparison to the Ultrasone, gotta say, it's interesting to see the word "dark" and "DT770" together. tongue_smile.gif

 

Very best,

Very best,

 

Well, they're not TMA-1 dark, but certainly far from bright wink.gif

Beyerdynamic has neutral and bright sounding offerings, but the DT770 isn't one of them.

I'm stuck between the Ath-m50, Ath PRO700MK2, and the HFI-580/780, I primarily listen to bass-dominant music, but I occasionally listen to a bit of rock, and electronic music, any ideas on what I should choose?
