Hey hi, a friend recommended me this place
I had these:
They broke, the right channel doesn't play anything, I've opened them and the wires seems fine, so it's probably the wires between are the problem, which you can't just easily fix it seems. They barely lasted 2 years :(
My friend gave me some pointers help pinpoint what I need exactly:
1- "What kinds of music do you listen to?"
Thing is, they're my main PC headphones, I use 'em for everything PC related, from games to youtube, to music (electronic music usually, game music ... etc, a little of everything) and shows/anime, especially anime.
2- "What kind of sound signature would you like (heavy bass, neutral, focus on female vocals, etc)?"
I know there's kinds of headphones for specific music usage, but what would be best for total general usage as described up there?
3- "Do you want them open or closed (open have a better soundstage i.e. instrument separation but leak noise in and out)?"
I guess I'd go with the better sound quality than noise leakage prevention
4- "It'd also help to mention what you liked/disliked about the MDR-7506s, since they're relatively neutral closed headphones designed for accuracy over fun."
What I liked about the MDR-7506
- Ear fit into them
- Comfortable for wearing for hours or pretty much all day
- Great audio quality generally
- Telephone like cord, I always keep hitting the damn cord somehow and this prevent damage to the headphone and my head
Also what do you mean "accuracy over fun"? Accuracy, things sounding as they're supposed to is important to me. "Fun"? You mean probably stuff like bass and such? A little bit of bass would be good, but I don't really care that much about it
For about a budget of 100$ to late 100.
I've been wondering if going wireless would be better, since there would be no external wires anywhere to break, plus if it's USB it could perhaps work on the Wii U and later PS3 if I ever get one, which would be great since my TV doesn't have an audio output for headphones. But chances that wireless + audio quality would be out of my budget
Of course, they'd have to be durable, if I'm paying this much, I'd like them to last 5 years at least
