Somewhere deep within me, I love Earphones.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, this would be my first part trekking into the audio alley of OCN. Im curious about headphones that offer excellent bass, offer 5.1 surround, or some midrange 7.1 with decent bass.

Thanks audiophiles.

When in doubt, check the sticky threads of a subforum, like this one that seems aptly titled (you're missing a lot of info here):

Also, do you know what the .1 designates in 5.1 and 7.1? Also, what the 5 and 7 mean? That's more-or-less the existence of the subwoofer and the number of channels, respectively. You don't actually get surround sound on headphones. Very few headphones actually place multiple drivers (effectively, sound sources) in different places in each earcup, not that doing so would necessarily even produce the desired effect.

Should also state a budget considering headphones can reach $5k+
