Headphones and Amp? - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Why would you rec the hd555/595 when he lists dubstep in his music? Both are light on bass. And his soundcard is perfectly fine as well, there's no need for him to get a new one.

As for my rec, I'd look into some beyerdynamic dt770 pros and a fiio e9 amp with your budget. I use them for bass heavy music/movies.

Ok. How about Auzench Prelude(Already Have) --> Little Dot MK II -->


Hows it look? Do I need special wires? Should I get the m50 or the m50s? Will the m50 fit on a 14 year old's head?

Thanks.

I second the M50. You have absolutely no need of an amp with it either, unless you just really fancy the idea of deafening yourself.

The M50 has a coiled cable. The M50s has a straight cable. I have the M50 with the coiled cable and love it.

I'm ready to buy them now, but do you think they are too big for a kid(14)'s head? Anyone actually have them?

Im a dub/bass head and I love them. Clear, punchy bass that is tight and controlled. These are one of the bassiest, if thats a word, pair of headphones you can find. And by bass I dont mean beats or bose.

They sell out quick on amazon at this price, they normally go back up to around $220ish.

Thanks everyone! I'll buy them as soon as I get home. I just have a general question. Why do people make cans with like 600 ohms? Resistance just seems like it is bad.

More resistance = less distortion = better sound.

HIGH IMPEDANCE HEADPHONE PRO’s: All other things being equal, there can be some significant advantages to higher impedance headphones. A higher impedance allows for more turns of wire to be used in the voice coil of the driver. This can result in a better “motor system” with fewer compromises resulting in lower distortion, better frequency response, and better overall sound. Higher impedance headphones also require less current to drive reducing distortion. It also makes them more immune to output impedance differences between sources.
Think of it as a car engine that requires higher octane fuel.

Factoring in everything, I would go for the Denon D2000 tbh. Comfortable, more balanced sound vs. Ultrasones (important for rock / metal as they are based on the mids).

Take a look at the Ultrasone PRO 550 before you buy that M50. I have a M50 and after listening to my cousins PRO 550, I'm seriously thinking about selling em and getting a pair of the 550.

Don't go with Senns if you're listening to that type of music, they're simply not "fun" enough. I would go with Denon D2000s on that budget, they're quite a large improvement over the M50s and one of the best deals at their price point. Otherwise I would check out the Ultrasones as previously mentioned, but they are a bit too colored for my tastes.
