Buying new headphones need help - Page 2

post #16 of 18

It's not really overgeneralizing imo, since the bass isn't inbconsistant. The subbass isn't that much quieter than the mid/upper bass.

 

Well anyway, let's agree to disagree (the last 11 posts have been just us :beyersmile:).

If an open back headphone is not problematic due to lack of isolation and sound leakage, I'd recommend going that route for truly enjoying music. Isolation means that you will hear noise around you, since you're probably alone and behind the computer that may not be an issue. Leakage means that anyone around is going to be enjoying some of your music.

If these are not an issue, I'd recommend the Sennheiser HD558 as they are nicely priced and have a fantastic sound. The bass is not overly accented, but is there and with quality, if you want some more sub-bass, below 100Hz let's say, EQ it up a bit and you will be pleased. As it stands the vocals will be clear as a bell and the percussion will snap. You will notice that the brush of and metallic clink and clang of cymbals will sound very real, something most HP's lack. These HP's are easy to drive so you won't have to invest in an extra HP amp. You can easily drive these from a phone or MP3 player (DAP). There is an easy 5 minute modification to remove the internal rubber strips that block some of the rear grill holes, this will make them sound very close to the more expensive HD598's. As it is they sound very close and without the mod are fine. You can easily Google up the details of the mod, youtube instructions are available.
