My hd 598 sounds a bit weard to me :(

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I dont know why but the highs and mids in my hd 598 hurts my ears.

My soundcard is a audigy 2 zs... 

Buyed these today cause i wanted better sound to my computer.

When comparing these to my noontex zoro, theres no big difference in sound quality.

I am very dissatisfied with how the hd 598 sounds and i wonder is there any ways to fix it?

The Audigy 2 ZS does not come with a headphone amplifier and chances are the headphone/line-out jack has a high impedance.

 

Get an Asus Xonar DG, $30 and there is a $10 mail in rebate this month

DG comes with a basic head amp and the headphone/line-out jack's impedance should be lower.

The DG is a low cost way of trying(?) to improve the HD598's audio quality.

Is there anything else around you could plug the HD598s into, just to see if the problem is with what your plugging the headphones into and not the headphones themselves.

It sounds even a little bit worser in my phone... Maybe it is just the soundcard then? :)

598 are a little bright and agressive. Too much for me.

Sounds like you bought from the wrong store then

Also the songs you use will go a long way in dictating how shrill your 598 will sound.

So only listen to music that "fits" the headphones? Why would someone want to purposely limit themselves like that???

I didn't say anything of the sort.
