Hey, guys. I'm planning on getting some new full-sized closed headphones soon to replace my ATH-M50's. I have a budget of maximum $500. I have a Schiit Fulla that I use as a Amp/DAC and I mostly use the headphones for my computer. They can be the same level of comfort or greater than the M50's. I generally prefer a neutral, accurate sound, but I can be hard-sold on V-shaped signatures. I'm considering the Shure SRH1540's, but I'd like to know if there are better options.

I've gotten an approval for the Shures last thread, but I'd like some other takeaways as well. If you own these headphones, I'd love to hear your personal opinion on them.

>> No.57667747

Classic rock mostly

>> No.57667757

It has bass and doesn't snap in half.

>> No.57667767

I much prefer the HD 600 response and I like how well they stay on my head because of the clamp. I'll be using EQ on all headphones so the stock response isn't that much of an issue but the more linear the better and this is where HD 600 has the edge. I also own a headphone amplifier already so I'll easily be able to drive them to comfortable listening volumes and above.

I object to the notion that you need different kind of headphones for different musical genres or mixing/mastering/monitoring vs listening.

I'm not the guy you're replying to, but as a previous owner of X2 I can tell you that it has some problems: sub-bass is weak, midbass is exaggerated, mids are recessed, treble is dark.

Okay so, I'm trying to decide what headphones to buy. My budget is 40$ USD or under. I've narrowed my options down to two Headphones, the Koss PortaPro's, or Panasonic's Retro Over-the-Ear Stereo Monitor Headphones RP-HTX7-A1. What would you guys/gals reccomend between the two? Or should I choose something else? Comfort over long listening periods and decent sound would be nice, I also wear glasses so the headphones shouldn't obstruct them too much. I'll be using the headphones for gaming and casual listening. Also, NO EAR BUDS!

Okay so why should I buy these, what makes these worth buying? Are they comfy?

>> No.57669509

PM3 is meant to be more portable oriented than 1540. Much smaller, for better and worse. Smaller pad openings and the like, less than most ears.
The 1540 is more bassy. You can replace pads easily on the Shure, whereas the PM3 pads were not designed to be user serviced.

Probably a little easier to find the PM3 for a discount, take advantage of Oppo's official refurb PM3.

You should make your own. The purpose of EQAPO is flexibility, use sine sweeps, play around with the sliders and listen to a few things to determine if you like the result.

It depends on your use. Momentums are only worth it if you are using them outdoors as in walking n shit.

Comfort on them is mediocre, and have a decent clamp, which you dont want for home use.

Neither. Portapros are good, but they're designed for public use. They won't give you the comfort you want.

A better option is Superlux 662 EVO

If you listened to them and you liked X2 then get them, everyone's listening preferences vary.

I am not huge fan of bass and I rather dislike when bass is on the frontline so I went with HD600. X2 had too much bass for me and everywhere, build quality is fantastic tho.

I would really appreciate some advice on a new headphone purchase. They will mostly be used for ASMR (positional, "3D" audio). Also for a bit of ambient music, general movie watching, and gaming. My considerations are:

Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (250 Ohm if my amp can push it, else 80 Ohm)

Preferably <$200, but flexible if the cost is justified

if you choose open, you might never use them outside, their weakness is that they have 0 isolation so you can even hear the wind. Anyway
since you want to chill (not critical listening)

go for the mdr 1a for one closed can or go 2 pairs the HD558 (or HD598SE if it is on sale) and the V6/7506, all the open cans on this price range that i know need and amp

>> No.57670565

I'm not too picky since I don't know too much about it. If it helps, I'll be watching films and listening to music like vaporwave, chillhop, instrumental hip hop, electronica, etc.

>> No.57670577

I think HD600 are well suited for all types of music, there are some genres that other cans are more suited for like beyerdynamic being more suited for metal but HD600 eat it all.

However, being neutral they sound laid back and bass is a bit rolled off. They have details and clarity and they have some bass, but they are not as 'crisp' and 'sharp' sounding like beyerdynamic or akg. I am bringing it up since your past headphones described as more sharp sounding ones. HD600 are good and I don't think you will be disappointed in them if you don't have some particular genre preferences but check out beyerdynamic and maybe akg. Also, idk what you have as an output but HD600 depending on your audio might need an amp, phones don't drive them but my bare mac book can drive them to acceptable levels, altho they are better off with amp. Akg need amp most of the 3 and are hardest to drive.

>Is there any sliders I should never touch?
Slider? Not particularly. There are some filters you should steer away from for general purpose EQ: pass filters (high, low, bandpass) and notch filters.
Your main filters will be the (parametric) peaking filters and occasionally the shelf filters.

One thing you should do is reduce the preamp gain to counter the largest gain you make with your filter. The goal here is to avoid digital clipping.
Can you specify anything that is unclear?

>To see how your sliders look
An example. The goal with this (arbitrary) configuration is to reduce bass.

>> No.57670643


go ahead, you might want an DAC/amp if you willing to save for later, or buy a cheap SMSL sAp VI if you have the extra 10 usd, im using them without an amp and come from the HD598SE The sound is similar but better, i bought a DAC/Amp but is not coming until Dec.

Not him but here's mine for reference, pretty autistic. Made with sine sweeps and repeated adjustments after listening.

ATH-MSR7 is one the flattest closed headphones, maybe a little small.

Ety HF5 (and HF2 and HF3) are near flat with high isolation. Ear tips included may not be for everyone. You can swap on Shure foam tip, Westone Star, Klipsch biflanges...
Or pick one of the Compy 100 series foamies.

If you don't want that, the SE215 has a high isolation and decidedly bass boosted.

Also wireless.
Personally find the 770 more comfy, and the 770 isolation is already good. QC35 can block out steady low frequency noise bit from ANC.
DT770 is bigger, QC35 is smaller. By default 770 sound better than the QC35, but the QC35 engages an auto-EQ when ANC or wireless is active.
Sounds improves with the auto-EQ, but better than the DT770? Not sure of that.

NVX XPT100. Or the Brainwavz HM5, basically the same thing.
M40 / M50 is not exactly great.

Would the X2's be good for that?

I've been using MDR-V6's for years, they're great headphones, especially for the price. But, I'm looking for something more exciting and "fun" for music, while also being open back. I feel like I've narrowed it down to the X2's, unless there's something better for my preference under $300?

Anyway, I need some headphones for work. Was wearing my HD201's but the cable is wayyyyy too long and makes it a tangle hazard, also the boss said that I need to be hear for fire alarms (I can anyway, he's just being a dick. But basically the lower profile of the headphones the better.).

Why would I get those over the m50x model then? I don't mind paying 20 pounds more if it means that they will last longer and feel better (especially the last part, comfort is important to me).

Or is there something else with similar build quality and same sound quality but cheaper? Any off-brand stuff?

>> No.57677839

When I said slightly cheaper build quality, I meant splitting hairs slightly cheaper, it's practically the same headphone and sounds better unless you listen to nigger music.

How do the dt1770 and the t70 compare? What's the general opinion of tesla 1 vs 2?

>> No.57677893

M40x is the all around superior headphone. Nice highs, good mids, more neutral bass, actual soundstage. With the money you save on getting the M40x buy some replacement pads, probably HM5 pads so they'll be super comfy as well. M50x is just not a very pleasant headphone to listen to, especially for long periods of time.

So it's black friday now, I have $100

The cable on my A900Xs is becoming unbearable. The right side cup doesn't play unless I wiggle it around and get it JUST RIGHT. I will probably fix this sometime in the future, but since I have $100 is there anything good for black friday?

I see the Sennheiser HD 598 Cs Closed Back Headphones on amazon for $99. I would have those today so it's really tempting. They are closed, which is nice because I live in an apartment and don't need everyone to hear the shit i'm looking at.

I have owned A700's and AD900X. I use a Xonar DX sound card with a ton of higher end capacitors i've added on. Also has a different opamp. Sounds a LOT cleaner on the ATH-A900s, so i'm looking for something that would go well with that.

Xonar DX soundcard, prefered closed headphones. Have $100 and like audio technica. Any ideas?

-I live in Germany and prefer to buy through amazon.de
-I'll mostly use these on my PC
-full sized
-I don't particularly care about open or close
-willing to sacrifice comfort for sound
-not much in the way of sound preference though I don't insist on bass
-my old headphones were ATH-AD700, was very satisfied with them even if they are said to lack bass

m50s suck, the verdict is still out on the 598 cs but might as well order them now while they're still cheap and decide how you feel about them later. They're only 99 bucks for the next 15 or so hours.
