The HD555's are like the anti-bass headphone. I've had a set before

lol, HD555's really are a bit lean on the bass. How about the Denon AH-D1001?

Ultrasone HFI-450 are another very good less than $100 model. Sometimes you can find them much cheaper during sales.
post #304 of 471
The A700 has more bass than the AD700 because of the closed back, but the open back has better soundstage, which can mean better positional audio.

How about the Audio-Technica ATH-M50/M50s? Are those a good set of headphones? They said yes at the Headphones Club but I just want to make sure.

I really like the hd555, are you sure it has no bass at all? As I said, I dont like really heavy bass, but it has to have bass.
Curently I have an 'almost' (it has some big grills blocking a little) open back headphone and im pretty satisfied with its bass.

This Denon AH-D1001 are more likely for which kind of music? Can you tell me more about this headphone? Its almost 2 times the price of HD555. On amazon I can get HD555 + zalman mic for $100.

I found the Ultrasone HFI-450 on Amazon for $90, Is it as good as people say about HD555, and have more bass? Which kind of music they are more likely? Can you tell me more about this headphone? I like the price and its style. Is it bigger than HD555?
I was looking at some tech specs, and its frequency is 20-20000. HD555 is 15-28000. It counts something?

EDIT: After searching a bit more, I changed my opinion.
Now Im considering the Denon AH-D1001 or a HD280, because they have more bass.
The HFI-450 are still in my mind, because of its price and I like the way you can turn it inside. But I didnt find anything about how it sounds.

What do you guys think?

Loved its looking and heard only good about it but didn't find it in stock anywhere. 1100s is $120.
$95.
$99

Does anyone have an recommendations for a gaming headset for around $40? All the ones I get have inline controls that everything eventually just dies in cause the solder joints in the inline controls are crap

*erhem*

As me and others have said, don't really bother with dedicated "gaming" headsets. Just buy a good pair of headphones and a separate mic and the experience would be much better.

That being said, you'll be hard-pressed to get a decent set of cans for $40. All I could give you is, I dunno, Sennheiser HD 205 or 202. If you'd like open-air cans (which bleed sound out and let noise in), then by all means get the Koss Porta Pro or KSC75.

Heck yeah, M50's. Soundstage is good despite being closed cans, while having that sweet, warm sound quality that's just excellent on vocals. I've listened to a pair and it's very good. Get it if you can.
