Asked before but
Are these the best headphones i can get for my budget?
(Budget is around £20)
Isolation: Closed Ear
Purpose: Gaming/Music/Voice acting.
Music Tastes: Prog/Rock/Metal
Previous Experiences: Cheap £7 headphones which were tbh pretty good.
Comments: Preferably something with overall nice quality.
gah, missed tennant's video
In your example, with the wider response you can guess that if you listened to them you'd probably notice the 598s extend lower in bass and in the highs. No you're not going to notice the 3hz difference in the lows, what you will probably notice is the lower extension in general that Sennheiser tuned them for(which is reflected in the lower bass specs).
Of course the next question is how much extension do you need? That's where reviews and getting people's impressions come in. It could be that for the music you listen to you need low extension but not much above 20k, or maybe you listen to music where you don't want deep bass but instead need better mids and highs.
But that's just me.
I once got a CPU, GPU, and some other stuff at a computer store for free on accident. I didn't know wtf was going on, and was too excited to start working on the build. But long story short, the PC is still in the other room for my sister.
Q6600, 4GB of ram, 3850, Corsair TX750,
My friend has a 400W IED for his 3850, but I think this thread is about headphones.
Are there many people with Philips SHP2000? Are yours also broken as fuck?
Purpose: DJing and some general listening.
Music Tastes: Electronic
Previous Experiences: Beats Solo HD, worst decision I ever made. I got rid of them and now need something new.
I'm looking at the Audio Technica ATH-M50 and Sennheiser HD-25 IIs. The Sennheisers have an excellent reputation but the M50s can fold, which is handy but not necessary for me. Isolation and single-cup listening (ideally hands-free without having to bend my neck) are my biggest concerns.
Fritzel, where do you always get that stuff? I'm curious.
Although the HD25s don't collapse or bend in anyway the HD25s are definitely well rated for DJing and are great portable bass headphones, but I'd recommend getting headphones with a stereo/mono switch for DJing, like the low cost but still great (especially for DJing with heavy vocals) Pro DJ100s then get a separate pair for listening.
It's a mixed bag and one you'll probably have to solve yourself, also consider visual appeal.
Anyone comment on Klipsch Image X1 for £17?
Head-Fi rates them as between C1 and C2.
C1 is £59.99 and C2 is unavailable, so apparently pretty good?
I have two pairs of headphones, one is a cheap-ass Sony MDR-EX35 earbuds, which I got for around $25 and have decent sound quality. They have an odd tendency to make popcorn noises at low bass tones, but it isn't really noticeable in any genre but techno and orchestra. They're amazing bang for your buck. Pic:
I take them everywhere, but at home I use these enormous Sony Professional series headphones, which deliver amazing sound quality. I've never heard better.
My owning two Sonys is purely coincidental.
What is the difference between the M50 and the M50S?
But the cable is removable correct?
get the straight cable
don't fuck with the coiled
Bleh, still not sure if I should go with M50 or HD25. David's suggestion of M50+Koss Pro DJ100 won't really work because I also need to buy a bunch of other DJ shit. I like the HD25s durability but the M50's ability to fold is nice. Which has better isolation?
I prefer the coiled version, but I use it on the go and I never use it for casual desktop use, just listening to music via an external interface since it's bad with videos and games. I can see it being horribly annoying if you use it for your desktop too.
but they're also not over ear :((
And comfort? I've read the ATH-M50s are very tight, at least at first. If I went with the M50s I'd also have them on my neck a lot so how is the headband padding?
They're tight at first, they loosen up a lot. Around neck is completely fine for me. I do that a lot of the time.
