    Ladies and Gentlemen, literally the worst set of photos I've ever taken god damn;

    I did the foam mod and stuck an Antlion ModMic on my 558's, burn-in isn't done yet so I can't report on the sound, but they sound pretty great out of the box, and they're comfy as fuck. I'm so use to leather/pleather though so velure feels kind of weird, but I'll adjust for sure.







    Also, heres the E6 I ordered.

    I would have gotten those, but I personally think it's hideous, and besides the slightly different honeycomb structure they're the exact same except for a piece of removable foam on the inside. Saved me 70 bucks, so welp.

    Heh. It's actually a pretty easy mod, just pull out the foam, a layer of mesh, and unscrew a few things, and voila, you have 598's.

    As for the looks, I dunno, I'm just not a fan of the colours. Seems more suited to the interior of a car.

    e: It actually reminds me of my car exactly, the black and all.



    (not my actual picture, but you get the point.)

    pair of these should be arriving today: http://www.amazon.co.uk/JVC-HAS4X-Xt...8944686&sr=8-3

    It'll be interesting to see how to price compares to the quality.

    I have no idea how they perform, but I tell you what they sure are horrendous looking. Especially that urban camo head cushion

    true, they do look like a 13 year old's wet dream but i'm hoping to get some decent sound for the price.

    Budget: $50-$70
    eBay: yes
    Country: Australia
    Isolation: preferably closed
    Purpose: 45% gaming, 35% videos and 20% music
    Music Tastes: a bit of everything
    Previous Experiences: I bought a sennheiser HDsomething eons ago and they were great but eventually broke, and at the moment I'm using a razer megalodon :/
    Comments: I would prefer headphones over earphones, and bass isn't really important to me if that helps the search for a great pair of headphones in my budget range.
    Would Grado SR60i be a good choice? I'm willing to spend a few extra dollars outside my budget if it's worth it.

    not really, they're open (you wanted closed) and have bad soundstage (i think?) which is bad for gaming. If you decided for open rather than closed, I'd say to get HD555
    I don't really know of any other cheap closed haedphones except HARX700 and HTF600

    I did say preferably, so I am open to suggestions for other headphones. And most of my gaming is mainly for it's bgm and stuff, over footsteps and other things. The HD555 is $100 over my current budget but I should have enough for it in fortnight.

    Got these :)

    Dunu Hephaes (too bassy for my taste but the build quality and looks are awesome)





    Digizoid ZO2 (miracle cure for missing bass punch in IEMs, totally blown away by the synergy with RE272 while playing Killing Floor)
    Low gain to high gain transition indicator:


    High Gain (for headphone out):


    First level contour (less bass), total 32 levels:


    Medium level contour (less bass):


    Last level contour (less bass):


    Multipurpose switch (on/off/gain switch/contour switch):





    Accessories with Hephaes


    Edited:

    Head fi. I got my ZO2 that way, though I did buy Dunu Hephaes from him as a token of returning the favor.

    Quoting from ClieOS review:
    As far as my own opinion goes, ZO2.3, like the original ZO, is the miracle cure of poor bass response first, then an amp in second. Unlike most bass boost on portable amp that tends to add a bit of muddiness into the mix when it is over applied, the ZO2.3 with its SmartVektor has no such problem. Even on the max contour, the music retains its overall cleanness

    So my shitty $10 headphones broke today when I accidentally pulled on the cord. I'm not sure what even broke, but the left speaker doesn't work.
    What is the best circumaural headphones that I can get for $30?

    Oh my god my fucking ears.
    NO headphones in existence fits them. I've tried over 7 pairs of in-ear earphones and various normal earphones and they all just plop right off. My ear is small is shit. I've even tried the curvy ones where they wrap behind your ear. Nope still falls off.

    What else can I buy that fits me, thats also cheap? I have to resort to a behind-the-head headphones now, but I can't bring it along with me to school cause it takes up a fuck load of space.

    I'm looking for a pair of headphones, under $25, that are comfortable enough that I can lie down in bed on my side with them on and sleep through the night. Quality is not as important as comfort in this case. Besides, it's only going to be plugged in to my phone.
