In comparison to more expensive stuff? Not that great.
They are still the best you're getting in your price range though.
These are very good, bassy headphones that are comparable to my HTF-600 in terms of quality, but have a slightly muddier bass, worse highs and worse sound stage all due to it being a closed headphone (it's still a very decent soundstage). The most noticeable difference is the lack of detail. Differentiating from different instruments gets a bit difficult at times. It has great isolation, you can't hear outside of them and others can't hear what you're listening to. It's a fair trade off, and considering that they cost $15 less, worth it. As for comfort: they rest on my ears, clamp down a bit hard, and get a little sweaty. They're designed to be supra-aural and do fit my HTF600 pads, so you could easily buy the velour pads for added comfort.
Huge value. If you want cheap closed full-sized headphones I'd pick these, HTF600 don't isolate too well.
These actually sound incredibly similar to my HTF600. I have these in one ear and my HTF600 on the other, and can just barely notice a difference. I actually think I prefer these over my HTF600, they just make my ears itchy for some reason, but IEMs comfort often vary from person to person.
These are incredible and should be purchased, they are $7.
Okay, it's official fuck everything I've said before this forum is better than Something Awful. I take it back, all back. Some goons are just the biggest cunts holy shit. People sending their circlejerk squads to try and troll the fuck out of me for buying headphones that aren't $10 bucks and from a vending machine. Worst part is one of them just admits he never listens to music ever and he still keeps going. Ugh, fucking goons. I'm sorry Facepunch take me back :'(
Once you start taking offense to people on the internet, you probably need to start growing some skin.
Why not just stick to the headphone thread? I assume SomethingAwful have something like that, you're asking for trouble if you're gloating about your expensive/extensive headphone collection to people who aren't informed.
I wasn't though, I was just humbly posting my desk since I rearranged it since my last post in the desk thread. Also, I'd love to give you more details on the situation but they're harassing my girlfriend really bad now, and she's freaking out so I gotta go over there. This is like the scummiest thing.
I lurked SA once
everyone was a big jerk and constantly bragged about how they bought a forum account on the internet with ~loadsemone~
They do have better megathread OPs though, I'll give them that.
In brighter news I'm about to get some nice headphones and a mic to go with them via Shadaez, who is a total bro for doing such a thing.
I bought myself a pair of Sennheiser HD202 II's the other week, I have to say the difference is huge from those crappy earbuds I had before.
I didn't want anything special, they are just for my phone. I mostly have 320Kbps MP3's anyway.
Those are the 201s in different plastic, right
They look pretty sleek and way more portable
No, its the revision of the 202.
The earpieces are on ball joints, its really comfortable.
Wich headphone should i buy, HTF 600 or Philips SHP2700
I want bass and good quality audio for like 30 euro's
Looking for a generally good all round headphones.
I'm just going to share these deals. The SRH840's are 180 on amazon, and selling for like 120 used.
If anyone wants one get em off this ebay seller
I got mine from him and he didnt even mark them as shipped because he wanted to surprised me. Free two day shipping from NYC without me asking. Fucking eBay is great.
Also he ships international folks
Purpose: Music (100%)
Music Tastes: Dubstep, DNB, Electronica, Hip Hop, Metal, Reggae, Rock, Orchestral music.
Previous Experiences: JVC Gumys actually just loads of cheap in ear buds.
Comments: I was considering getting the HFI-680s, ideas anyone?
here, you should also take a look at the DT250, KNS 8400 and HD25-1 II (if portability is needed), D2000s if you can get them for a good price. I wouldn't recommend the M50s or DT-770 80s as they do have quite a lot of bass (for your electronic music) but when it comes to rock/classical you'll want a slightly flatter and faster frequency response, the DT250 250ohms have great bass extension but will still sound great for metal/orchestral.
I bought a Creative Soundblaster Audigy SE 7.1 just over two years ago, and couldn't notice the difference between that and my onboard audio. My in-ear headphones are probably average too. Tempting to buy these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-MDR-EX3...=321QN7BI6ECFH
Oh, and my onboard audio is some Realtek standard audio for motherboards.
You should probably get atleast a XONAR_DG, cheap, but it'll be a definite step up from Realtek onboard imo.
Also, I'm returning my M50's since Amazon has an amazing return policy. They just don't feel... needed amongst my 558s, 770s, and 840s tbh. Sure they're fun for a bit... but compared to listening to my Shures (the other monitors) they are just too harsh for my taste I think. I wanted to defend them with they'll look best when out in public or whatever, but, I think I'm just going to get some good in-ears for them, since wearing my M50's in public would probably make me look like a douchebag. Also holy shit they're price spiked to 160 everywhere? Damn, they're not worth that amount at that point honestly. They just aren't as well rounded as the Shures. They're portable yea... but they only really work with certain newer genres and don't do alot of things well, comfort and gaming aren't very good for example. I could see why they were all the hype when they were just above a hundred bucks though.
Post your thoughts on the Popos please.
They're so fucking gorgeous, I hope they're good too.
Got my Sr60s today, much bigger than I first anticipated.
I've been looking at the DT250 250ohms, looks like I'd need a decent amp to go with them?
I'm a little split between the HFI 780 and the DT250 250 ohms at the moment, also will I need a decent sound card for decent headphones?
Just received my Beyer DT150's (250 ohm) and they are incredible, easily living up to the hype on head-fi. Bass like IEM's, other frequencies sound almost indistinguishable from AD700's (i.e. very good) minus the fatiguing upper highs, can barely hear people talking next to me, comfortable as fuck (and that's coming from AD700's)
And my Xonar DX card seems to be running them quite well
One thing that strikes me about is the lush and liquid mids. Mids are neither forward nor recessed. These characteristics together with wooden signature reverberation do make them sound more fuller, warm and musical.
Treble maintains an acceptable level neither sounding too shrill nor too dull, benefiting the relaxed presentation.
Sound-stage has good width (out of head presentation), depth is a notch below. Instrument separation and imaging is simply brilliant, reminds me of FXT90.
Still on burn-in. Will post a full review after 15 days of burn-in.
In all certainty I will be retaining these.
Setup: Xonar STX + Fiio E17 (High Gain) + Foobar 2000 WASAPI
I've decided I'm going to get the Beyerdynamic DT250 (80 ohm)
Looking forward to their arrival
Budget: ~$100 preferred, $150 max
Purpose: General use (music, gaming, etc.)
Music Tastes: Too varied to pin down
Previous Experiences: Creative Fatal1ty gaming headset
Comments: I would prefer to avoid having to buy an amp. Nothing against them, but I'd like to avoid spending more money than I have to.
No sound card (not sure it makes a difference anyway).
I really just want a chance to finish what my roommate started and break this headset in two.
Those are the cushiest looking pads I've ever seen. So what's with Brainwavz? Of the few products I've seen online all of them were identical to other brands.
And I can't find the HM5's anywhere at all. Plenty of review videos and head-fi threads, but nowhere to buy them.
I actually don't know, Fischer Audio and Brainwavz share quite a few products (FA-004 -> HM5, FA-003, -> HM3), some kind of OEM or something?
