    Shure SRH440 frankenstein'd/fixed with Sony MDR 7506 headband.

    I was recently inspired by this head fi post from 2015 that modded the headband of the MDR1R onto the SRH440. https://www.head-fi.org/threads/shure-srh440-melting-with-the-sony-mdr-1r-the-master-comfort-mod.787806/ I decided to dive into ebay for a used SRH440. Been looking for an HD600-like...

    Back for real this time. Want recommendations for headphones.

    I'm nowhere near an expert on this haha, but basically as I understand it, Impedance (ohms) determines how much Voltage is needed to get a milliwatt, Sensitivity is the Sound Pressure Level (volume in dB) per milliwatt. Both numbers are important to how "easy" a headphone is to drive, but note...

    Back for real this time. Want recommendations for headphones.

    I guess another option since you're looking for closed, neutral, but with soundstage is the M40x "Zeos edition" (a.k.a., getting a M40x and adding ZMF cowhides). I've never tried it, but if you believe Zeos, it takes the neutral sound of the M40x, adds soundstage with the cowhide pads. I'd...

    Vintage K141 600ohm modded or K240M?

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone has had experience with any of the 600ohm vintage AKGs. I was looking at the K240M used, after seeing metal571's review of the K240DF (since the M can be found much cheaper than the DF). Anyone know how these two compare, and if the K240M has the same imaging...

    Angled Drivers in Closed vs Open headphones and effects on Soundstage?

    Sort of wondering about Atmos through Stereo headphones. I downloaded the Atmos demo on Windows Store and through my AKG K551, the demos were boomier but didn't actually seem wider than what i was used to. Also in one of the demos, vocal speaking sounded "distorted" and stretched oddly with...

    Angled Drivers in Closed vs Open headphones and effects on Soundstage?

    Ah, sounds like it's generally agreed upon to be more down to frequency response or possibly the recording rather than outright position. Tilting the drivers would affect the FR I'd imagine. Just wondering why companies do it when Beyers and AKG don't need it to create a good impression of...

    Angled Drivers in Closed vs Open headphones and effects on Soundstage?

    I've tried a multitude of headphones since getting into the hobby at the beginning of this year. I love soundstage in headphones, though not at the cost of imaging, and was wondering about the science behind angled drivers in relation to the ear cup housing. Context: after trying the HD569...

    Received my DT770 i 16ohms, missing sub-bass and high treble. How is the M40x?

    Hello,  I've posted here once before asking for a headphone that could cover my (seemingly ridiculous) needs...   - Good Soundstage but Closed back - Good for Metal genres - Under $150 - No Build Quality issues - No amplifier needed   So I landed on the DT770 i. I've already tried the...

    Tried out the DT 770 Pro 32ohm, need suggestions after returning them.

    Ah shucks, those look out of my price range (I think i mentioned $150 and below). They look nice though.

    Tried out the DT 770 Pro 32ohm, need suggestions after returning them.

    I've tried the HD599s at a kiosk and really like them! But I'm looking for a closed back since I know I will be using them on a plane, train, or office.

    Tried out the DT 770 Pro 32ohm, need suggestions after returning them.

      Those look great! My concern is with the circle hinges though, I'll be traveling across the US often with whatever I buy, and would like much more durability (the metal build of the DT770 appealed to me for that reason, despite the size).   Anyone have any other suggestions? I also saw that...
