post #32501 of 38604
@whitewulfe I'm still tempted to buy the JVC S2000, the $190 bass kings from Japan. Don't think I will though.

I'm sort of still in love with my 2 year old Super HD 681 EVO's, I find myself always going back to them, even though I own 5 more expensive cans than those and usually higher rated than my HD 681 EVOs, not sure its because I have like 1000 hours of burn in on my HD 681 EVO's but as much as I love the bass drop of the t20rp, it just doesn't have that soundstage I am looking for, but it has the imaging, but then the Pioneers have the soundstage but not the imaging or bass, and then again my HD 681 EVO is not the king of anything but does it all well, so I guess that is why I like them lol

I have STAX coming, so hopefully everything else collects dust after that, biggrin.gif

Hi all; no one replied to my last post, but most likely I'll be getting ATH-M40x tomorrow.

Before I pull the trigger, does anyone know a better alternative for around $80-$100?

ath-m50x often goes on sale for $99. if you just would be patient. and if you plan to game in them mostly I would say choose something else because they don't have much of a soundstage, if you are on a tight budget, $15 Monoprice 8323 does bass decently and is also good for gaming, and keeps sound sealed in. save yourself some money? Whats $15 risk investment? thumb.gif

Thanks for the input.

I've heard a lot about Monoprice, unfortunately they're not available in my country. And ATH-M50x for $99 is like.. not gonna happen biggrin.gif

I'm over with so called gaming headset.. I understand that most of them have sub-par sound quality for the price.

Btw does anyone have experience with Sennheiser HD 471 ?

I must have missed your question yesterday.

Could you post the site(s) that you can shop from?

I've never heard the 471s but the 400 series in general are very sterile and boring to listen to. The 500 series is where Sennheisers start to get good.

 

Like pez said, what shops can you buy from?
