  1. Philips SHG7980 PC Gaming Headset With Adjustable Microphone

    1.50 star(s)
    I've had a few philips headphones in the past and I've always managed to pick up clear, well defined sound through them. This pair however have had their bass freq's fully jacked up and it over powers everything with no way to "reset" the eq on it. It's irritating and I'm going to have to return them as someone who relies on higher freqs in-game (hearing the crunch of sneaky players for instance is a game-breaker for me). The mic seems to have a vast amount of hiss over the top of it, though other players have said I sound fine: I'm not satisfied.  ...
  2. Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Studio Monitor Headphones

    I use my M-50s for both studio work and DJing. In the studio they do a fantastic job at giving crystal clear highs, mids and bass - though the more I think about it the more I think the bass may be little too loud - clearly it isn't loud enough to mess with the other frequencys but it's something to look out for in the mixdown. I've only just started using them for DJing since I was unhappy with a pair of Pioneer HDJ500s and then a Sony MDR ZX600 (both returned, sold on), I'm using my M-50s whilst I wait for a pair of sennheiser's to arrive. For...
  3. Sony MDR-ZX600/BLK Over the Head Style Headphones

    I bought these after popping into our local PC world and testing out all the headphones they had there. I was actually on a budget at the time and wanted to get as crystal clear sound as I could (none of that hyped up bass and brand nonsense) for a low price (£34). These were actually very well balanced, the bass was not at all over powering and let the highs (whilst sounding mildly thrashy) and mids poke through well. I no longer own these, as I hit a drawback with them - the audio cable is roughly a metre long. Whilst this might be acceptable for...
  4. Pioneer HDJ-500K DJ Headphones (Black)

    2.50 star(s)
    I was rather disappointed when these arrived today, as a DJ who relies on mids and highs just as much as lows I wasn't very happy with the overall sound of these. I expected, for the price tag, a little more clarity. Instead I feel I ended up paying an extra £40 just to have the brand tattooed across the top of, what are, quite attractive headphones. My studio headphones are ATH-M50's and for DJing I had previously been using a useless pair of £15 Sony's from Argos...the jump to the HDJ500's was felt marginally in the build quality and weight and...
