I fucking love these things. Even though I appreciate the HD600's are more suited to a wider range of music being more neutral, the clean, clear and piercing highs coupled with the airly open soundstage just makes for such a wonderful set of headphones. There have to exist phones that do the same things these do in a higher range, right? Apparently the HE-500's are actually warmer, which really isn't what I want out of planars.

Just about everything except for country music and anime garbage. Perhaps its just me and I'm just treble sensitive. Someday I should try beyers or something and see if I just die. Other headphones I own include hd660s, TH900 and L300, among some other lo/mid-fi trash. The treble on the th900 dont bother me at all though even though its very v-shaped. But that headphone is known more for its bass anyway, like I said I've never tried a headphone thats known for its sharp treble like beyerdynamics or something.

All headphones are basically two speakers playing an inch away from your ears. You're always getting a 180° soundstage, unless you're editing the sound with software like crossfeed and such, it's always the same. The differences are all in your head, depending on your biases.

God damn I am a retard, should have known there is a generel on /g/.

Anyway, I am looking for headphones. I attend fighting game tournaments and the crowd is getting to my nerves and concentration. I lately realized there's a headphone jack you can plug your headphones into (3,5mm) for most setups and have game sound and I want to make use of it now. They need to be wired of course.

50-120 euros. I am fine with buying used ones from ebay though.
My Samsung Galaxy S5 and my PC and headphone jacks at tournaments
Full sized (I think?)
>Open or closed
Closed. I need noise cancelling headphones. "Noise cancelling" is kind of specific though, I need something that won't let me hear stupid screaming and cheers from the crowd. Need to be in my own world.
>Comfort level
I need decent comfort. I want to use them to travel and hear music with too. I also wear glasses and especially at tournaments having them on for a few hours shouldn't discomfort me. As I don't have insane audiophile level of investment here, the improvement in sound quality - unless extremely significant - would be below the priority of comfort
>Sound Signature
It needs to be bassy. I've tested headphones that were described as godlike, and while I liked what I heard, being low on the bass really ruins my own experience (which is casual, I know)
>Past Headphones
Sennheiser HD 202 and even those I was amazed with, just to get to understand how little quality I am used to.

So yeah, I am not even sure if what I ask for exists. Basically I want noise cancelling headphones that are also neat to listen to music to and play games I guess.

I looked into Beyerdynamic DT770 pro but I heard they were low ion the bass so that puts me off and Sony MDR-7506 but from what I have read they let a lot of noise in.

My brother desperately needs some new audioequipment. He's using shitty apple earbuds now after his gayman headphones broke.

200 to 300 USD, this is flexible both up and down. It's a christmas gift.
Open back or semi open back, he needs to be able to hear when dad knocks on his door
Something comfortable, perhaps full sized cups that go around his ears.
>sound signature
Don't really matter. he's a gamer, but he mostly just listens to music on youtube. Something not too much in either direction maybe.
Some shitty gaming DAC/amp, I think they should be able to drive most mid-tier headphones

I've got some HD600, and I love them. They'd be perfect for him, but I'm not sure if his amp could drive them, and they're a bit too expensive. He also really wants an option for a microphone, so I'm thinking of maybe doing the thing with the cheap microphone-attachment thing.

i have no idea where you're reading the dt770 has no bass, but if they don't have enough for you then you won't be happy with anything that isn't a subwoofer taped to your skull

HD 660 S or DT 1990?

>> No.68824368

I've got HD650 and DT1990 and I love them both and am having trouble deciding which to get rid of. Only thing I'll say is what you may well have already heard: HD650 can make any source sound as decent as it ever will, while DT1990 can be harsher on bad recordings or low-quality encodes, but more impressive on well-recorded stuff. Assuming the HD660S is an upgrade across the board I think I'd lean toward that but you really can't go wrong here as far as I'm concerned
