OCN's Most Recommended Audio Products - Page 497

post #4961 of 4967
Anyone looking for some EDM cans, after testing 80+ headphones I recommend Monoprice 8324 (not 8323) with Alcantara Shure earpads, sounds better than $600 Audioquest Nighthawks when paired with Schiit Fulla 2 dac/amp and given a 30 minute burn in.

I *believe* the K7XX is currently on drop at Massdrop.

Unless there is an after market mod for the q701s to fix the headband, I would never recommend them.

They were my first pair of real headphones, and I liked them a lot, but those bumps on head band actually damaged my scalp. I have a tiny little bald spot because those bumps basically burned themselves into my head. (I would wear them for 8 hours plus for gaming and what not)

I had to "fix" them by attaching some foam to the band and then wrapped the thing in electrical tape. It was a huge mess.

Ah, good call. I do forget that people don't like the headband. It never got to me, personally, but I've had thick, longer hair for quite some time tongue.gif.

If you decide to go with the K7XX I recommend you pair it with the Xduoo TA-01 AMP, it really brings vocals more forward while maintaining the soundstage for the instruments, makes it a lot more fun imo. My Vali 2 made it sound boring.

Ok, What about a microphone?

Are there any other/better alternatives that provide the same convenient functionality?
Which version of ModMic should i go for?

I actually have one still that is being used on my GFs headphones. It's currently put onto a set of HD650 and is a super solid fit. Looks natural and OEM even. I just looked at the versions and I don't see why the v5 would be absolutely necessary. A little disappointing to see them start to tread onto standalone mic territory with the prices. The v4 should be good and I believe it is a directional mic, so sounds from typing or anything non-voice should be pretty muted.
