Best Headphones For Dubstep and Trap : Under $165 - Page 13

post #181 of 736
Two cents on EQing. It can do magic if your have enough juice in the amp section to power your cans. Otherwise you will just hear the distorted sound of clipping when pushing to hard. If you are just driving the cans straight from your laptop then seriously take into account the sensitivity of the cans you are getting.

So what I see from the past posts is that once I get them, and if I don't like them out-of-the-box, I should use Electri-Q to EQ them. If they still don't satisfy my needs, I should either do burn-in or just return them.

Since the discussion went back to burn in I'll hop back in. Burn in won't drastically change the sound, and certainly not the overall sound signature. If you don't like them before burn-in, you're not going to like them afterwards. And as I said before, the V-Modas don't really benefit from burn-in. 

 

EDIT: There are some cases of really high-end headphones needing some burn-in time, but no driver in headphones priced under $700 should drastically change after burn-in. Do I believe in burn-in? Absolutely, I've heard the difference myself. But it isn't, "Wow, I actually like these headphones!" after each burn in. It's subtle improvements.

Interesting... Seems like it's not worth the time of burn-in.

It's not. If I like a headphone but think the treble is ever so slightly too grating, burn in will possibly help. I've never heard a burn in difference that changed anything more than like 2% of sound.

Natural burn-in is the way to go ;)

Yes, just normal use. They will break in over time.

i dont know much about amps but are the z02 and e11 the most recommended amps for getting the most out of headphones? Do they make headphones sound louder or what do they do exactly? more bass?

So, all headphones/speakers need an amp. You might say, "well, I don't have an amp!" Actually, there are amps in any device you can plug headphones into. It's the amps job to power the headphones/speakers and take the analog signal from a DAC (digital audio convertor, turns your digital music into analog) or turntable and make it at an appropriate volume for listening. So if you have amps/dacs in your ipod, laptop, AV reciever, etc, why would you need another? Because the amps built into these devices are usually pretty bad. You want an (good) external amp to provide more/better power to your headphones, and to preserve the quality of audio coming out of the device. I highly recommend the E11 beerchug.gif Getting a DAC is also a smart move. Fiio makes a nice DAC/amp combo unit called the E10.

Just making sure, with about 10 hours of natural burn-in, will the Crossfade LPs sound alot better than the Hesh 2's?

For future headphones, would the Reloop RHP-20 be great for my needs?
