One of the many topics people love to argue about, whether audio equipment needs to be broken-in. Tyll Hertsen recently did his own test of burn-in:

People are arguing about it in this thread:

What do you guys think about the AH-D2000s? Good all around headphones? Gaming, music, etc

They are good headphones, but, need an amp to sound correct and I wouldn't say they are for everything.

Hm... I'm having trouble finding a good all around headphone. I know many are good for music, it's just that games/songs with explosions/bass are always different with different headsets.

I was thinking about the M50s from AudioTechnica... but apparently the AH-D2000s are better. I plan to use the ASUS Xonar Essence STX so I'll have the amp, I'd just like to know what you mean by they aren't for everything. I mainly would use them for music and gaming, not much else that I can think of besides that. I'd like a headphone with nice bass too, but it's hard to find the best of everything for a good price.

I also read about the AKG K-701s... they were supposed to be nice too.

Hey guys I have a problem.

Recently my JVC RX700 started to make a slight static noise when nothing is playing. I wanted to see where exactly it is coming from so I started to tweak some setting in the equalizer and when I raise the 4k it gets extremely loud.

what the heck is going on? is this normal? I've had them for about 1.5 months and this started about 3 days ago.

Hey guys. So, I just got my first paycheck from my new job, and I dont like having all that money in my account, so I need to spend some. On new headphones of course. I wanna get the Creative Titanium HD sound card and a pair of good cans with them, but I cant decide on which ones to get. I want headphones that are good for gaming but also can deliver good sound while listening to music, metal mostly, and Id like for them to be open. Ive been looking over the Most Commonly Recommended thread and the ones Ive been considering are the Audio Technica AD700's and Beyerdynamic DT770. But I just cant decide, with the AD700 being very bass light (Dont know if that will matter as much in games and metal) and the DT770 being closed back. Can you help me choose some cans, and not necessarily one of those two I mentioned. Price range around 150-200 Eur.

I wouldn't take ad700s for metal. They have a relaxed sound that doesn't fit it at all. You can read my review in my sig if you want to get an idea of what their general sound signature is.

If you want a good combo of games and metal look at the ultrasone hfi series, namely, the hfi780. They're low impedance, have a quite spacious soundstage for closed headphones, and have great bass response. They also are far more intense sounding than the ad700s which seems to be what you want.

Thanks pangolinman, the HFi780 seems like a very solid choice !

Edit: What about the open back Ultrasone HFi 2400 ? How do those compare to the HFi 780 ?

I don't know too much about the 2400s sadly.

A few things though, the 780 has lower impedance vs the 2400, meaning it will be able to get louder (35 ohms vs 75 ohms).

The 780s should have more head shaking bass, while the 2400s are more about detail retrieval (bass will be lower on open headphones a large amount of the time).

If you have money to burn, the 2400s would be a solid choice, but the 780s seem to be just what you want. At the price point of the 2400s, there are other competitors, namely, the DT990s, to contend with.The DT990s have very strong bass for an open headphone, which I would guess the ultrasones have as well (Ultrasone is known for bass response) I can't advise you between those two, as i don't know about the 2400s, sorry.

So I just got my Monoprice DJ headphones, and I must say, for $30 shipped I'm extremely impressed... The only headphones I have to compare them to are my JVC HARX900s, but from initial comparison, the Monoprice headphones just sound clearer. The highs are clear, although they can be a tad harsh, but not annoyingly so. The bass is very punchy but not muddy. I guess my only dislikes about them is that they're a bit small, and just barely fit over my ears, and they get hot more quickly than my RX900s. Overall, the RX900s are more comfortable, but they're a much bigger set of cans. I do like that the Monoprice cans came with two cords, a short and long one. So far I've only used them for music, but when I get a chance to game in them, I'll let you know how they fare for gaming. I have a sneaking suspicion the RX900s might win out for gaming, but only because they're semi-open, and the Monoprice cans are closed.
