    Looking for a good first "nice" headset...

    Hello,   I am currently using a set of Bose QC3's but I would like to upgrade to a nicer pair of headphones. I have done quite a bit of research and I know that I will be needing a closed pair as I will be around other people while using the headphones. My budget is ~150 to 300. I am looking...

    Looking for new headphones

    I am currently looking for new headphones. I am currently using a creative fatal1ty mk2 headset. It's ok for listening to music, but not for thoroughly enjoying and feeling music. Before this I used a sennheiser HD205 which I just can't wear, as they start hurting really bad after about a...

    Getting AT M50s in Europe?

    Only places I found them so far are amazon DE/FR but they're expensive (150 euros). Is this really the normal price in Europe or are they overpriced compared to other stores..? And of course since I live in Luxembourg of all places, no stores in the country carry them...

    Ultrasone HFI ear cups size smaller than the pro900?

    I have a pair of Ultrasone pro900 for home use. I would like to get a headphone for travel. I have used the pro900 for travel in the past and they are a tad too big and heavy.     I would like to stick with Ultrasone. I am curious if the HFI 780, 680, or 580's would provide a more...

    Ultrasone Fan Club! (Roll Call)

    Well, from my searching there has not been an official "fan" thread for Ultrasone.  A huge "There's Something About Ultrasone" thread that was started by dexdexter almost five years ago (I have read that entire thread through the years), is the closest.    There's various specific Ultrasone...

    Where is the love? Ultrasone HFI680

    There is a lotta love at Head-Fi for the Pro(line) 750 (and some other sentiments as well ) and the HFI780 (whether recabled or stock), but the HFI680 seems to be completely unknown. The fact that the American Ultrasone distributor choose not to distribute the HFI680 is probably largely to blame...

    Differences between Ultrasone HFI 580, 680, 780 - Please help

    Please help me choose which of the three will suit me best.  I listen to mostly electronic and alternative music with some rap/hip hop.  I read that the bass on all three is pretty good so that shouldn't be an issue.  Mids are also pretty important to me as I like to hear vocals clearly without...

    Ultrasone HFI-680 or DJ1 Pro (or something else?)

    This is my first post, so please bear with me. I listen mostly to dubstep, not skrillex type stuff, more like benga (look him up). I previously owned Grado sr60's and loved them, but when I started listening to dubstep the lack of bass began to be a problem. After a bit of research Ultrasone...

    Ultrasone HFI-700 *UPDATE 8/1/11*

    So I recently came across an awesome deal for HFI-700's from someone in the area. Should I go for it or are headphones like the HFI-580's/680's major improvements?   What I'm looking for is: good hard-hitting bass, good mids (don't want recessed mids), good non-fatiguing highs. Basically an...

    Upgrading to a HFI-680 from an SRH840?

    Thanks to this site my first pair of decent on ear headphones I put on my head were JVC RX700's, and my first pair of actually good headphones were Shure 840's. I love the 840's and they've made it really hard to listen to the 700's anymore, but there's still a couple of things I miss about...

    Bass comparision of ATH-m50 and Ultrasone HFI 680 and PRO 650 ?

    I currently own a pair of ATH-m50 and i like the quality of bass but dont feel that they have enough power in them. I listen to songs on my ipod with a Fiio E5. I like my songs to have a lot of bass, and bass wise I thought that the MDRXB500 has the perfect amount of bass for me, but...

    [ask] Ultrasone HFI680 w/ Govibe Magnum or HD25-1-II?

    okay here is the case... I have an Ultrasone HFI680 and I liked it, until my dad bought me a cheap and low quality headphone. That cheap headphone in terms of audio quality is absolutely inferior to the HFI680, but there are some aspects in the initial sound character of this headphone that I...
