Razer Electra. - Page 6

Honestly I think you would be best off with the HPs in that Jaycar link, it's a really good price for them. If you're worried about them not having a brand or anything they're the same as the Fischer Audio FA-003 and the Brainwavz HM5.

If you learned to say please or thank you nearly as much as you used the words "I need" or "I want" or "give me" then you would be in good shape tongue.gif

Ok anyone know any good isolating IEM for the price of my budget?
Any good headphones to put over my IEM for extra isolation?

This is serious.

I don't want to spend $50 on headphones.. I want good isolating, low sound leak headphones over my IEM so deep earcups is needed.

Most of my spending I think will be for the IEM

PLEASE

Etymotic MC5. Nuff said.

 

Okay just skimmed through this entire thread. OP, it looks like you're not really interested in the best sound quality... If all you want is good isolation, get a pair of drumming cans. Why are you asking at an audiophile forum if you don't really care for SQ?

Let me bring a little light to the conversation

 

I've owned the Electras. They sound great! The sound is really understated. The bass is really nice and punchy (decent amount of impact) and the treble is a little rolled off so it's not super-piercingly treble only. 

The downside is the comfort. All of the clamping force is put on your pressure points behind your ears. It's really rather uncomfortable for more than 30 minutes at a time. Like any closed headphone with clamp force, your ears will get sweaty, but that's just a trait of closed headphones. 

 

 

Would I pay $60 for them. Absolutely not, but if for around 20-30 they're not bad.

Just to clear up some confusion, the Electra does work with PC. You have to buy the mic splitter though, which is another 15 bucks.

And the bad mic thing is pretty much a trademark with Razer headsets.

Well OP here is what I see. Your heart set on the Electra and are pointing out the flaws through every other headphone just to reinforce your mindset on the Electra. Here is the issue with the thread is that you aren't looking for suggestions because you have been suggested plenty of headphones, almost to the point your barebone dry on suggestions of whats out there, rather you are looking for someone to reassure you that Electra's are worth your money, even though you have been pointed elsewhere. I was in a similar boat when I first started my headphone search, I bought the Logitech G930 which had a TON of amazing reviews. I received my headphones and withing 2 days had them re-packed in a box and on a truck back to Logitech, they weren't pleasing. After that experience I found head-fi and started doing exactly what your doing, asking around for suggestions and getting people to recommend me things that I thought I'd like, but I wasn't fair about it because I completely dismissed some of the best recommendations, including the headphones that I finally settled on.

Not to draw this out long and make you read a few paragraphs, ultimately your going to have to do one of two things. Buy your Electra's and settle for the over-marketed headphone that they are and keep everything you have mindset about 5.1 dolby etc etc, or start looking completely away from Electra's. You said Isolation is huge to you, truth is that isolation is something that varies from headphone to headphone. When I had bought the Phillips Uptown's, one of the first headphones recommended to you, the isolation was superb and the headphones sounded great but they didn't have the bass hit that I was looking for. I admit I didn't read all your posts and I see your on the IEM + Headphone path right now, goodluck finding that right combination, but stop just throwing everyones suggestions out because out of all of those headphones a lot of them are really amazing for what your looking for and you dismissed them because of a flaw you thought the Electra's weren't going to have, because Razer told you they wouldn't.

 

TL;DR: Your kinda a dick to people trying to help you, forget everything you know about headphones because it's not nearly as much as these kind folk here do (trust me, they helped me find the HFI-580's I have now after about 5 other sets of can's.) and remember you can always return things you aren't satisfied with.

They suggest me, I do reasearch on them, I give back my feedback. I don't "Ignore" them, I don't go **** it. Let's just post and pretend that guy didn't suggest anything.

But I turned to a different root where now I'm going to find a isolating headphones BUT still good quality sound + lack of sound leak + sustainabiltiy and deep earcups because I need to put IEM under e,.. But I don't want to spend too much... Beacuse the money which I spend my main on will be IEM which will be in the future. pretty sure IEM are more isolating due to the fact they're literally in your ears right?

if you are going to wear iem's under it why do you need headphones. IEM's already isolate well.

Consider the ear protectors that they use at construction sites.
