I got my dad the rs180s. He's very happy with them, over 180 though
I use a mod mic on my hd650 and my mate on the ms pros. There is no impact on the sound quality
I absolutely love them! But they are just a little more than $180 Try twice that price.
Ended up going with
Hey Guys, What do you think is better, the ATH M50's or the AKG k553?
Basing on comfort, and sound.
Canal-phones just broke. Looking for decent sound with a mic for Android. Cheaper the better.
Beats are apparently a huge waster of money.
How are they?
Hi everyone, getting a digital piano for myself, not a terribly expensive one but just for playing at home for practice.
I have previously had a pair of the ATH-AD700 which were very comfortable and I reckon these would be a good choice again. I was wondering though what the opinions on Open or Closed for music quality.
They're great. Nice and clear and much better quality than my last ones (Razer).
I am not a fan of the open. However, open sounds a little bit better than the closed counterpart imho.
Open headphones generally sound better than similarly priced closed headphones.
Closed headphones isolate and don't leak much, open headphones don't isolate and leak some sound
Looking at the next stage on my journey to headphone perfection.
I've got Hifiman HE-400's, a CA Dacmagic 100, and a matrix headphone amp. What would be the next logical step.
The hifiman work well, but it's starting to get abit... Soft i guess. Bass is there, but it's kinda lacking. Top end is there, but it's not.... amazing. Opening up the volume it does make it sound better, but then it's starting to get a fair bit of harsh sibilance (i generally keep OS sounds @ 100%, and keep the amp @ 50% volume and it's quite reasonable till about 70%, anything after that is harsh as hell).
That's an odd one - headphones don't normally start sounding worse over time unless there's something wrong with them.
My recommendation would depend on what kind of sound you're after
I really love listening to electronic stuff (dubstep, drum and bass, etc), but listen to everything else as well really.
Happy to come down and have a listen at different options (you guys are like 5 mins from me! )
Come on down
Haven't really come across anything I'm particularly happy with so would it be easier if I upped that to $200?
Maybe monday, decided to shoot straight home. 4pm traffic out of west perth can be fatal!
Try out the Audiotechnica R70x, likely not up your alley but I think they sound great (coming from HE-500)
I have both the R70x and the HE500 on me. The R70X are certainly lighter.
