post #11 of 31
I have both a pair of SRH840's and HD-555's and I get more use out of my HD-555's. The SRH840's are pretty heavy and bulky into retrospect to the HD-555 so they aren't quite as comfortable. Additionally the HD-555's have a larger soundstage and warmer sound to me than the SRH840's while SRH840's feel more neutral sounding, have far better isolation, and have less noise leakage than the HD-555.

I've had my HD-555 for about 3 years while I have had my SRH840's for about 1.5 years and I still prefer my Senn's.

Take a look at this: http://www.overclock.net/sound-cards-computer-audio/1014902-most-commonly-recommended-audio-products.html

I would recommend either the AD700 (they have no bass) or any pair of ultrasones that are model 550 and up (hfi or pro) since they have good soundstage and good bass.

No bass? Hmmm, not quite sure if that's good then.

Also I read the AD700 is open, so everyone around you can pretty much hear. The reason Im getting these is for a dorm, so it defeats the purpose frown.gif

I believe I fall into the compromising gamer. I like music to be an option (or movies if you must), but Im mostly likely using them for gaming. So bass being present is nice.
Another problem being is that Im using them for a dorm. So sound leakage is what Im trying against, hence why the AD700 isn't being considered as Im told they're loud. Im also told the HD555s are as well, but I figured I get some input about that too.

maybe a pair of closed headphones are good for a noisy dorm on a friday evening?

Omega, I don't like the HD555's so much because I believe they are a bit generic. I also have no opinion on the Shure headphones. However, I do own the ATH-A700's and I have a review of them if you want to check it out.

Man, the M50 is such a rip-off at $160. For the lack of soundstage and the reportedly bloated bass, that is a really terrible price. It'd be more agreeable if it were $100, which it was originally before everyone realized that the AD700 was a bass-less headphone. That consequently led to everyone going "OMG MAH BASSES I NEEDS DEM BUT I WANT ANOTHER AUDIO TECHNICA HERP DERP."

If you're looking for closed headphones under $150, then you should get an Ultrasone unless you're big into classical music. S-Logic makes classical sound weird which is why I have a Sennheiser (the perfect complement, IMO) as well.

I have heard the SRH840, AD700, HD555, HD595 and wasn't really amazed by any of them. The SRH840 is by all means...very flat. There's a lack of warmth with that headphone that bothered me. It's edgy, quick and somewhat harsh. The AD700 is a high-mids, treble oriented headphone. It has no bass impact and sounds somewhat disappointing when you have things exploding around you that should be pounding your head with bass. The HD555/595 are classical music headphones at best. They have smooth mids, a good deal of warmth compared to the AD700 but that doesn't mean they have bass impact. The bass is subdued and just gives you a "meh" feeling.

General rule of thumb around the $200 or below price point is that you're not going to get an open back headphone with decent bass response. That's not to say that all open headphones have no bass -- it's just that it's a different type of bass.

Closed back is always better suited for a dorm. Also, you might want to not get too expensive of headphones until you get your own apartment because other kids may steal your ****.

Look into the M50s as a great closed back solution for keeping noise lvls down during dorm gaming.

So if you'd have to go for $150 and below, which would be your favorite pick for video games and music?

Okay, since I have heard or even owned so many of these headphones, my honest opinion is that Ultrasone wins at the $150 price point. Call me biased but there doesn't seem to be a great selection of closed headphones in that price range.
