Oh shit I need new headphones. Pic related is mine.

>>52150785
The Basstyle. I've seen people say it's basically a rebranded Takstar Pro80. The specs listed do seem different but that is most likely balogni.

You could also get a HyperX Cloud 1 and just remove the detachable microphone if you want to be safe as that's guaranteed Takstar Pro80 clone.

Never go below the M40X and I wouldn't get the Koss for those cheap tier earpads that come with it.

Looking at the specs, the Basstyle uses the same housing as the Pro 80 but different drivers so there's no guarantee it'll sound as good.

Headphone noob here asking for advice.

Ok /g/ so i want to buy my first pair of decent headphones, i will primarily use them for muh gayming.
I mostly play RPG/JRPG(e.g.Witcher 3/Final Fantasy) and these genres have a lot of dialogues , i dont usually listen to music but i DO care about in-game soundtracks (boss fights for example).

So i'm looking for something that will be pleasing to hear when the soundtrack kicks in, but i also want detailed sound with clear mids/highs (i guess this is the flat sound signature? i dont know).
It is not a must but wireless would be a plus since i intend to use them far from my desk. It should have at least detachable cable though.

open is better in almost all cases other than the fact that it leaks sound out and sound leaks in

so if you live alone, get open, if you live with your parents, get closed

if you get closed, maybe look at DT770, Takstar Pro 80, m40x

if you get open, maybe look at HD558 & SHP9500

Sennheiser HD201 (kill me)

I've been looking at the AKG K-702 (198 euros) and the AKG K612 PRO (142 euros), are there any better options for the price? Is the K-702 worth the extra 50 bucks?

thanks for the fast reply!

I have my own bedroom but i live with other people, if i get the open headphones, how loud is the leaked sound? I wont be using them outside.

I have read that the m50x is on the bassy side. True? Is the m40x different sound-wise?

About the dt700 , i assume you are talking about the 80ohm version? Amazon shows me 3 options and that one is the cheapest.

m40x are decently neutral, m50x are a lot more bassy, just like the d770s
80 ohms is the best if you don't have an amp, because it sounds better than the lower version and you need an amp for the higher one.
Even if you like bass, I'd still recommend the DT770 over the M50x

it's basically as loud as you hear it.
Crude comparison, take off your headphones, point them at your ear and hold them further/walk away

that's similar to how it'll sound, because it's pretty much like speakers

it'll still be more quiet than actual speakers because you wouldn't use them as loud as actual speakers

I think I will like the V shaped sound of pistons 3. I dont want to end up with shittier headphones than my Sennheiser CX870, cause price is much lower for pistons. Also the sound engineers working in Sennheiser should be better and more experienced than the ones working on pistons.

AKG K702 + Fiio E10K is a super combo. I got them this morning and I've been listening to them the entire afternoon. I'm amazed by how good they sound together. If you have a powerful pc, you might be able to use the K702 even without an amp. I keep the Fiio knob at 2-4 and it sounds loud enough to me to hear the details I need. Trust me, the K702 has an immense potential. I'll probably write my impressions ome of these days and compare it with the Fidelio X2. Also, the chinese model of the K702, the one I've got, is super comfortable, even compared to the X2. It's super light and the clamp is just perfect (at least for my head).

I just got the HE-400i. Been listening to them for a few hours and I have to say, people's reviews about them online are really inaccurate. Everyone's like wow they're so airy and neutral and detailed! Not that I hate subjective reviews, I guess around this price point the average user won't have listened to enough headphones to make good ones. I'll give my impressions here because there's a sale right now.

First off they're actually quite dark. Not LCD2 levels, but it's noticeably darker than something like the HD600 even. I personally hear a weird trough at low-mid treble. Don't get them if you dislike recessed highs.
Something people are right about though is the soundstage. It's really tiny, possibly the smallest or second smallest I've heard. Also don't get these if that bothers you.
Bass is clean and energetic but there isn't a lot of it. You like lots and lots of bass, don't get, etc.
There's an average amount of air, just barely enough to not sound extremely congested.
Detail retrieval and technical power are as you would expect around this price point, good but not amazing. It'll be enough for many though.

If I'm being critical it's because I expected a completely different sound. Their strengths are that they have a nice thickness and body, there's a lot of energy and dynamics, and best of all the sound is not dry. Fucking hate dry thin grainy sounds.

I think I'll keep them for a while. I have the LCD2/3 and the HD600 if anyone REALLY wants comparisons, hopefully not though because I hate /g/ and I don't want to.

So I like the clarity of sound I get from my RS2i, but getting bored with its severe lack of deep bass, what's similar in sound with a large soundstage but also has impact to go with detail?

I want something I can keep on for hours at a time.

Like I can remember, just some of those cheap $20 Sony ones, a couple in-ear ones which drive me up a wall since those rubber tabs constantly detach or they start hurting my inner ear after a couple hours.

I received some open headphones as a gift but I don't like how they don't fit over the ears and I know it would bug the people around me, so we're fine with exchanging it but no stores at all by me have them for under $150 so I'm left needing some help on what would be some decent ones for the $30 gift price.

Though if you want more in the way of customization or quality or comfort or not having to deal with a 10 foot cord or anything beyond the best bang for the least buck, there are other things out there. Monoprice have detachable cables but worse sound quality. And most other full closed style headphones worth a damn cost more. If you raise it to $40, the Superlux HD669 is on the table potentially.

>Bringing OSX vs Android discussion into /hpg/
I did own an iphone once and now I own an android. I didnt really listen to music on it but even if it sounded godly i wouldnt care because the OS is shit.

Nice try though, furfag

Having fun using a OS that dictates when and how you can or should multitask?

You're comparing a 800 bucks phone to a sub 100 bucks phone.

I'm assuming that because any android phone above 100 bucks doesn't lag at all. You could argue storage problems and shitty camera but performance is good and it has actual multitasking.

Iphone performance wise is shit dude, keep your lagdroid meme outside of /g or get BTFO.
