Each has there own postives, the K240 are good music headphones, but needs a basic amplifier to sound their best,

Have not used the HA-RX900 in years (they are in pieces), so hard to remember their sound.

The Hi2050s are almost as good sounding as the HSR-1000, being the Hi2050s are semi-open, might be the better choice for FPS gaming.

Brainwavz HM5 have a good clarity, but not much bass.

these headphones will be used for "trippy" rock music like deftones, pink flloyd, underoath, circa survive, balance and composure etc.

Buy the valour pads and they are EXTREMELY comfortable.  The most comfortable closed can I can remember (more comfortable than the 1r).  They're here: http://www.amazon.com/Beyerdynamic-DT250-Replacement-Earpads-Velour/dp/B003Y59WNE/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1382639406&sr=8-4&keywords=dt250+velour+pads

 

I agree with you. These are an excellent headphones for the price and also comfy for a long listening sessions. Changing pads to the velour makes these more comfortable (ears don't sweat so much), but they ruin the bass. It becomes boomy and uncontrollable.

I thought it improved the bass. Not in brightness but in impact and distribution.

To me, the bass is more tight with stock pleather earpads, but it s only my opinion. Maybe someone finds the velour pads an improvement. Everyone hearing is different.

I meant to say tightness in that last post, not brightness (Swype!).

wait, the sony mdrs sit on instead of around the ear?

 

are the krk 6400s as good as the sonys or the akg k240s?

 

ive been listening to my hd598 again, and while theyre great I want something more flat. I don't like how emphasized the vocals are, it actually fatigues my ears and the bass is not bumped enough to compensate for the open can design. the speakers are great, quick firing and produce detailed sounds, but I don't really like the tuning on them.

 

are the ATH-M40fs as good as the sonys/akgs?

The v6 is kinda over ear, it is NOT on ear.  They're super comfortable so what's the difference?

ok guys, should I get the akg k240s or the fischer audio fa003s?

If you have not tried dac/amp yet, it is worth trying dac/amp along with HD 598. E10 is a budget dac/amp. If you need portable solution, you can go for E17 or E 07 K.

Sound quality of my K240 Mkii is enhanced by E17. If you do not believe me, look this thread also. http://www.head-fi.org/t/687344/new-here

I don't want to have to buy an amp, especially at $100+

 

I'm really wondering if I'm going to lose detail going to a k240 or a fa003?

Have you looked the like that I posted earlier.

Most of on board sound cards are craps. That being said, K240 or whatever phone you are gonna buy might not make night and day difference in sound quality. My suggestion is, why dont buy budget dac/amp such as E10 and see if you like the sound quality of HD 598? I also wonder, why you do not want to go for dac/amp?

E10 is 75.99 in amazon and E07 K is 89 $.

My advice is to buy the MDR 7506, Citiscape Uptown, or M50, and (maybe, if you want) buy the Xonar dg.

I hear the m50s are colored. im really looking for a neutral sound signature.

 

mdrv7506 is a possibility, as long as its better than the k240 or the hm5 :)
