At someone's suggestion from here, I bought a pair of Takstar Pro 82 headphones.
I just plugged them in to my laptop, and the sound quality I'm getting is absolutely awful - extremely tinny, making it hard to listen to for more than a couple of seconds. Do I need a special driver or something to get these working right?

If they're completely sealed, knocking the headphone or yawning briskly will suck the diaphragm close enough to the stator that you'll hear a discharge noise that sounds somewhere between stickytape being pulled off the reel and a balloon being rubbed.

It can't be that hard to build a driver around a piece of plastic and throw it in a decently sized enclosure the angles the drivers a bit.

Ever try the Audio Technica AD700s or 900s? The 700s were my first headphones and the soundstage on them were very nice. The DT 880s are nice but still in between my AKG K7xx and AT AD700s.

The HD598's soundstage is closer to the AD700s IMO.

>>68816053
>DT880 has a smaller soundstage. I prefer the HD598's soundstage.
NOOOOOOOOOOO
I wanted to buy the HD 598 but the only decently priced one is the SR version. And the pads on those are LOW QUALITY and start flaking off after a year or two.

Anyone know the DT 990 vs HD 598 SE sound stage?
>>

Cool, the AD700s were very entry level but comfortable enough.

>>68815999
>better in every way
Sound stage is better on the DT 880 as far as I could hear. 1990 is closer to the HD 600 non existent sound stage.

So whats with the sound stage thing? For gaming? I would think any of the beyers would be fine for that.
Don't buy the DT990 unless you only ever plan to use them from your computer and you are comfortable EQing them. It's hard to tell because my pads are so flat that the driver rests on my ear but they sound pretty good with EQ.
The sound stage is fine, it's not noticeably small.
I would like to suggest you instead get a K612 if you are willing to EQ and the DT880 if you are not. Get the 600ohm premium version, even new they're cheap(especially if you get a 20% ebay coupon). You could power them with an Atom amp from jdslabs.
DT880 or K612 will last you like 3 maybe 4 years before you'll want to upgrade if you're anything like me. If you don't want to amp then midfi is basically off the table and you're better off with a lower model like maybe the hd579

What the fuck is wrong with people that they're willing to go this far for no cables and worse sound?

Is soundstage and separation the same thing? When I have voip group chat, in-game voice and sfx and some anime or music with vocals running simultaneously I want everything to be clearly discernible. Do I need separation, soundstage, clarity (or is that just treble boost without midbass bloat)?

I accidentally washed my pair of Sony earphones (Some cheap 20€ earphones that I really liked). It was my 2nd pair of the same headphones. I really liked their bass-free and relatively well sound-proofing, but I'm not sure I want to buy them for a 3rd time. Should I go for some wired earphones or bluetooth headphones? I mosty listen to using during bike rides, when walking somewhere or when on public transportation, so noise cancellation is crucial. I can't let every passenger find out that I listen to Eurobeat.

Thank you!
I really like my ATH M40x that I use at home and I'd like to have something that sounds similar to them. (low bass, clear neutral sounf)

If speakers in a treated room provide the best accuracy to the source, why are they boosting bass on the new target curves?
>>
>>68817635
Treated rooms attenuate the bass frequencies. People are used to untreated boosted bass and thus prefer it

>>68817635
New targets aren't based on anechoic rooms.

I just got my Atom amp and am planning on a new DAC as the next upgrade. I'll have to hold out on the 1990s after that if anything.

I'm thinking of the SMSL SK10 or if that's not good the Topping D50.
>>
>>68817827
Yeah, but honestly this thing smells like jewry to me, the target curve is even called 'Harman curve'. It seems there is a financial bias to promote their company rather than create a target curve that's accurate. Or they should make two target curves, one that general listeners prefer, and one that's actually accurate for engineers.

It's the whole cicle of confusion, engineers chose "neutral" monitors based how music sounds on it, and that music and produced on other monitors, that were chosen based on how other music sounds on them, that was produced yet on other monitors...
Yes, treated rooms are the ideal and there are a few standarts for isolation, reflection etc, but those might not be met and we will most likely never know for sure, and even if it's ideal, no way of knowing what monitors were used on that room anyway.
The golden rule though, is to produce music that sounds as good as possible from any source. So don't feel bad about testing stuff and finding out what sounds best for you, even if it doesn't fit perfectly some target, you are the one who needs to enjoy it, no one else.
