I take bad everything negative I said about the HD 595's !!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Oh my God I don't know what happened. Me messing around with the EQ, the long beep* burn in sessions or just the multiple hours of Battlefield 3 gaming I've done but these HD 595's are kicking so much butt right now it's unreal !!!!

When I first got them I was completely unimpressed but MAN have they come alive.

I just listened to "Fine Again" by Seether for the first time on these things and as long as that song has been out I have never once heard that fact that at the beginning when he sings there is a very very slight delay on his vocals. Well I just heard it this time...

I also heard actual guitar strings being picked in a fast manner, those of you who play guitar know what I'm talking about...

So, I apologize Seinhessier your HD 595's are pretty good

I love mine. I'm not sure about this whole business with some people not recommending them. Very entertaining, clear but warm headphones. <3 I got mine used though, so they sounded great when I first put them on. Maybe I didn't need to wait for them to be broken in? I don't know. Can't really say. Glad you like yours now though. They're very comfy and warm too, they feel like they were built with care and professionalism to me.

I usually do get my headphones used. No need for burn in time, all three (RX700, AD700, M50) have come in great condition, and I usually get them for a great price. Not complaining about $100 for my unblemished M50s

Yeah, it's kind of nice getting the hand me downs when it comes to sound equipment. My first CD player was a hand me down, as well as my first set of speakers. *laughs* Always cooler that way~

Not sure Sennheiser or Audio-Technica agree though. XD

Doesn't matter; my wallet's livelihood trumps their opinion

If you're talking about why your headphones sound more alive, you've mostly likely raised the EQ. It definitely gives headphones a more "lively" coloring.

You can test out my hypothesis by disabling EQ modifications and then returning them to the current saved settings.

I'm not going to tell you how you should use your EQ as I'm a fan of listening to headphones in whatever way you think sounds best to you.

I heard a pair before they were broken in too and they didn't sound all that great. Good to know that after a burn in they get significantly better.

Yes I think they sound much better. I've used them for gaming for about 2 solid weeks plus I've listened to a ton of music. On top of that when I went to sleep I played pink noise tracks for about 3 hours and then had a silent track for close to an hour. I repeated this for the first week.

Some people will say it's all in your head and that break in doesn't change anything. I'm not a genius of sound by any means so I can't give absolute proof either way, all I can do is say that to my ears the difference is huge.

And no I didn't change the EQ at all. Really the most important thing is just making sure your sound card settings are all set up right.

Ok, figured "me messing around with the eq " meant you messed around with the eq. My bad. I doubt burn in had that significant of a result on those headphones, but who knows. Glad your headphones are nice sounding now.

Yeah I did mess around with the EQ after I first got them and thought they were a let down. After reading more about them and other audio stuff from here and Head Fi I realised I should just disable the EQ and burn them in a bit.

I really didn't post that clearly so I can see how ya got that impression. Sowwy
