Limited options with Dell, but want to purchase something decent and better than my Ultrasones

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 


This is the link to my limited selection. I currently have the Ultrasone HFI-580's. Looking for something even better, with maybe a bit more bass. Anything that may be here? I listen to a lot of Linkin park, coldplay, phoenix, silversun pickups, muse, video game soundtracks, the killers, some rap, etc. They may have more headphones too, just gotta go out to dells main page, and the click the left hand corner dell icon, then search. Also something under 200 bucks, if someone can help, that would be great. Thanks!

Heya,

 

There's nothing there I would put $200 towards.

 

And nothing there is even as good as the HFI580.

 

And you're not going to find something with more bass than the HFI580 without sacrificing everything good about the headphone.

 

I would suggest you simply try to get yourself a Fiio E10 (home use) or E7 (home and portable) or E11 (portable only) unit, switch on the EQ to 2, and add +3 db of bass, which answers the "more bass" problem nicely. This applies to any headphone. So if you simply get a better headphone, you can still make it bassy. Also, to get a better headphone than then HFI580, it's going to cost significantly more than your budget.

 

Very best,

Do you think the HFI 580 are good headphones then malveaux? Do they have more treble than the Denon D2000?

Yes,

 

They're great headphones, usually around $120. Very good for that cost. They do not have more treble than the D2000. It's similar. Ultrasones are always a little bright (and some super bright). The HFI580 has some brightness to it (but it's not as awful as the PRO900). If one wants a well built bassy headphone in this price range, the HFI580 is a good choice. If one wanted a more balanced sound, the HFI780 would be the other way to go.

 

The D2000 is better, by an entire tier system though. In every way.

 

Very best,

Cool, thanks for the advice man! Saved me 70 bucks.. So later on down the road, do you recommend anything maybe on Amazon (in a comparable price range) with something better than the HFI-580's? I know they're super cheap there.

How do the Panasonic RP HTF600  compare to headphones such as the HFI 580 or the others in my signature?

 

I have recently sold my HD650 now I don't have any headphones, I was thinking of getting the Panasonics until I can afford something better?
