Which one is for me? HFI 580 or M50 ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, this is my first topic in Head-Fi, so new here. I decided, I will buy one of them but I can't decide which one is true for me?

 

I generally listen jazz music, especially trios (generally drum, piano and double bass.. sometimes saxophone). So I need really really good sound stage and instrument separation. I'm not a basshead but I want to hear every string of double bass with details. I read lots of things (really so many comparisons) but I'm not sure if everybody in here use both headphones.. So I need your help..

 

summary: 

- I need bass (jus for hearing double bass' strings)

- I need details (that's really important, I want to hear jazz pianists' breath..)

- I need sound stage

- I need instrument separation

 

imagine me, I will just sit on the seat and listen jazz.. which one will be better?

 

I'm waiting for your comments, especially from them who use/used both of them..

also, greetings from turkey!

Heya,

 

I would get the HFI580 over the M50 any day, especially for music listening, strictly because it has a better sound stage.

 

That said, the HFI580 is a bassy headphone. I would suggest you look at the HFI780 and PRO750 instead, they are balanced.

 

Other headphones to consider, though I know what's available to you and prices are going to be vastly different than the USA, so at least something to look into:

 

AudioTechnica A900X

AudioTechnica T500

Brainwavz HM5

AKG K271 MKII

SoundMAGIC HP100

Beyer DT770 PRO LE 32ohm

 

Very best,

Hey MalVeaux,

 

Thanks for your advise. Actually I'm between just m50 and hfi 580 because of turkey's situation.. some sellers in here selling used (like new) version of them, that's why I have to decide between one of them.. one of them is m50sLe and the other is hfi 580..
