I have:

MB Quart QP805 - Monitor headphone when I make/mix music
Panasonic RP-HTX7 - for gaming
Monoprice 8323 - for Hip hop/Dance music and DJ use
Sennheiser HD201 - My beater cans for the kids and wife
and now the Phillips 9500 for general listening

I might retire the MB Quarts and get some AKG K240s for music production, my Quarts are 13 years old now!

+rep for the panasonics, I own those as well the MP 8323 wink.gif I think the shp-9500 will replace your gaming can slot tho. and try some dance/edm with the philips as well... I have been surprised a few times biggrin.gif

Hmm seeing these comments.....

I must say this once....

SHP9500 arent greater than the HD60p or even the HD598.

I think people are over glorifying them.

I have a pair and been in the headphone game for 2 years already so I know a thing or two about being an audiphile.
I own many mid-fi headphones and simply put the 9500 below the HD598 and especially the HD600.

The 9500 are just a special kind of breed of which it could be known for being a great budget can.

If you guys head over to head-fi.org, you can find the SHP9500 thread there and follow what people say about them.

There is also a thread for people that want to know more about headphone and gaming, especially when using virtual surround sound with headphones.

Given that I used the shp9500 for a month and a half or so....they are great for fps games if you need to spot your enemies footsteps. Imaging is great but the small soundstage really is a trade off since I had a hard time determining how far or close the enemy was like in games like BF4 or even counter strike (not as much in CS, since the maps are smaller)

As for music...they are pretty good for most genres except for bass heavy music like hip hop or EDM in general....those genres will not sound fun with these headphones....

So lets not send misinformation about these headphones and give the correct information to the members of these forums.

I disagree with you on not being good for EDM, I actually enjoy these with EDM more than bass heavy cans, it just is a very unique flavor. Audio is subjective, I personally think they are better than HD 598 and HD 600, but others will think not, this is why audio is subjective. Also, maybe you paired with the a different DAC/AMP then I did, which also changes the way they sound to a degree. I also use special wires and USB noise filters that change tonality some, audi is far to complex for any of us, myself included to say this is better than that, I just am stating what I have experienced. Currently I am wearing Beyerdynamic T90s which most of the audiophile world hates, and yes they are way too trebly for a lot of music, but I am having a blast listening to game OST flac's and these are amazing gaming cans, fyi most of you here need not apply, these are $500 cans... my sig cans are $900. DAC/AMPS, wires, usb filters, even earpad changes can change the way cans sound entirely. I don't think even websites like head fi or reddit give it credit, they just jump down your throat and say your wrong... no... its so much more complicated than that, and at the end of the day, audio is subjective, I am sure there are some here who would hate my $900 cans and prefer $50 ones. That is fine, we all enjoy different things.

Just got my set yesterday and damn are they amazing. I've never owned a pair this nice before and I honestly thought there was something wrong with them when I first tried them out on a few songs.

Well we can agree in one thing and that is that sound quality is subjective since all our ears are made different and have different taste when it comes to sound signatures.

Well, maybe I word it wrong when I said that it isnt great with EDM...there is bass but the bass os so fast in the 9500 that it disappears quickly and dont get that decay you hear from other headphones that are close back or are just heavier in bass.

I mean, even my Soundmagic ES18 IEMs have much more bass than the 9500 and those cost me 15 dollars but obviously IEMs and headphones are built differently.

You are probably some of the few who dont like heavy bass headphones like the Fostex TH600 or TH900 or even the M50.

And thats not bad just some people like different kind of bass.

But the main reason I say that the 9500 isnt fun for bass heavy music is because in EDM, who doesnt like bass that makes your ears vibrate? Lol

But there is a headphone that had or has too much bass....the now discontinued Sony XB500....lol those things brought out more bass than a 10 inch subwoofer. It was soo much that the bass was fatiguing.

USPS said they delivered my package I had a key in my mailbox but I open the box and it's ******* EMPTY I call USPS and get a robot. I had been waiting all day for this package and it's now not here, I'm beyond livid. How do you become so incompetent that you give a key to an empty mailbox to someone, USPS needs to go out of business already. I contacted newegg support and they said it would be over a week for a replacement. I now know why people go postal. I'm so done with USPS and neweggs complete **** service.

I have to agree. after briefly getting into the audiophile scene and getting many headphones, I can say with confidence that the SHP9500 are good, but definitely not better than the HD598's. IMHO they're on par with the HD 558's.
