not that good but,
logitech H540. these were absolute garbage, they hurt after less than an hour and had no bass at all.
Hyperx Stinger. these were a great upgrade over the last ones. they sound way better, but they kinda broke a bit overtime and now they sound about the same as the h540s but with added comfort.

Can I ask why you want dual quarter inch outputs though? There is a plethora of amps that take balanced inputs with a 4-pin xlr balanced out. The only thing with balanced ins and dual 1/4in outs is the rme adi 2 pro, which is not exactly affordable.

I fucking love these things. Even though I appreciate the HD600's are more suited to a wider range of music being more neutral, the clean, clear and piercing highs coupled with the airly open soundstage just makes for such a wonderful set of headphones. There have to exist phones that do the same things these do in a higher range, right? Apparently the HE-500's are actually warmer, which really isn't what I want out of planars.

>>68820320
As long as you have a power amp they should sound good.

DT 990/880 are basically the same sound as the DT 1990 and I think the beyerdynamic amiron uses the same drivers as the DT 1990 too.

thats bullshit, i dont like 1990, as i said he4xx is way better imho, but they are better than 990/880, the treble is not that rapefest and with analitical pads they are decent neutral and detailed while having fun bass and are build very well, way overpriced and not for me, but no way shitty sounding like 990/880.

I'm looking for a good pair of headphones for my mom. She recently started working from home, living with her oldest son, his girlfriend, and their very young children. She needs to be able to focus on her work and block out external stimuli, so comfort and noise cancellation are important.bas far as I know she's never owned any headphones.

Just about everything except for country music and anime garbage. Perhaps its just me and I'm just treble sensitive. Someday I should try beyers or something and see if I just die. Other headphones I own include hd660s, TH900 and L300, among some other lo/mid-fi trash. The treble on the th900 dont bother me at all though even though its very v-shaped. But that headphone is known more for its bass anyway, like I said I've never tried a headphone thats known for its sharp treble like beyerdynamics or something.

Is it worth paying $500 for something that I hear is similar to the DT 990/880? or am I going to get memed again like the HD 600/660s from you schizophrenic audiophool autists.

>>68822267
Not when stax exists.
HD600 is objectively garbage btw.

I don't believe you guys enough from my last experience with /hpg/

What exactly are the best parts about the DT 1990? What can it not do?
>>
>>68822304
Best parts are the flat punchy bass and decent detail. It can't reproduce detail like stax can though, no magnetphone can.
>>
>>68822304
it produces the same level of detail as stax, but without the wispy effect staxs give and has better bass
>>
>>68822314
I don't care about detail too much. What are vocals like? Sound stage how can you compare it to the HD 800, and HD 598?
>>
>>68822332
Vocals are good. Slightly less texture than HD800 (way less texture than stax). 598 are mudcannons and do not sound nearly as good.
>>
>>68822267
Just got them. They are crystal fucking clear and great bass for an open headphone. Fun to listen to. Buy them anon.

>>
>>68822377
Soundstage is okay, worse than stax and HD800 but way better than HD600. HD600 is a mudcannon. Honestly you should just buy stax, bad things happen to people who don't (*click*).
>>
>>68822407

compared to something like HD 598? if they aren't as big as them I won't buy them.

There isn't any Stax distributor here and importing will make them cost like 70~100% more on average. DT 1990 is it then.

That makes the 1990 a viable option then, enjoy.

All headphones are basically two speakers playing an inch away from your ears. You're always getting a 180° soundstage, unless you're editing the sound with software like crossfeed and such, it's always the same. The differences are all in your head, depending on your biases.

God damn I am a retard, should have known there is a generel on /g/.

Anyway, I am looking for headphones. I attend fighting game tournaments and the crowd is getting to my nerves and concentration. I lately realized there's a headphone jack you can plug your headphones into (3,5mm) for most setups and have game sound and I want to make use of it now. They need to be wired of course.

>Budget
50-120 euros. I am fine with buying used ones from ebay though.
>location
Germany
>Source
My Samsung Galaxy S5 and my PC and headphone jacks at tournaments
>Type
Full sized (I think?)
>Open or closed
Closed. I need noise cancelling headphones. "Noise cancelling" is kind of specific though, I need something that won't let me hear stupid screaming and cheers from the crowd. Need to be in my own world.
>Comfort level
I need decent comfort. I want to use them to travel and hear music with too. I also wear glasses and especially at tournaments having them on for a few hours shouldn't discomfort me. As I don't have insane audiophile level of investment here, the improvement in sound quality - unless extremely significant - would be below the priority of comfort
>Sound Signature
It needs to be bassy. I've tested headphones that were described as godlike, and while I liked what I heard, being low on the bass really ruins my own experience (which is casual, I know)
>Past Headphones
Sennheiser HD 202 and even those I was amazed with, just to get to understand how little quality I am used to.

So yeah, I am not even sure if what I ask for exists. Basically I want noise cancelling headphones that are also neat to listen to music to and play games I guess.

I looked into Beyerdynamic DT770 pro but I heard they were low ion the bass so that puts me off and Sony MDR-7506 but from what I have read they let a lot of noise in.

My brother desperately needs some new audioequipment. He's using shitty apple earbuds now after his gayman headphones broke.

>budget
200 to 300 USD, this is flexible both up and down. It's a christmas gift.
>open/closed
Open back or semi open back, he needs to be able to hear when dad knocks on his door
>type
Something comfortable, perhaps full sized cups that go around his ears.
>location
Scandinavia
>sound signature
Don't really matter. he's a gamer, but he mostly just listens to music on youtube. Something not too much in either direction maybe.
>source
Some shitty gaming DAC/amp, I think they should be able to drive most mid-tier headphones

I've got some HD600, and I love them. They'd be perfect for him, but I'm not sure if his amp could drive them, and they're a bit too expensive. He also really wants an option for a microphone, so I'm thinking of maybe doing the thing with the cheap microphone-attachment thing.

i have no idea where you're reading the dt770 has no bass, but if they don't have enough for you then you won't be happy with anything that isn't a subwoofer taped to your skull
>>68823820
can you not just plug your own hd600 into the amp and see if it sounds good? also you can buy a hd600 or hd650 on amazon right now for $300 or the hd6xx on massdrop for $200

if you use any sound card thats halfway decent, you can just turn up the bass in tone settings under properties to have all the niggerbass you want

t. did this for like 10+ years on old soundblaster card
actually kinda miss it now that im using a proper dac
>>
>>68823957
Not really what I am looking for. As I said I want to use it mainly at tournaments to cancel out noise.
>>
>>68823963
im not the one that suggested dt770, but check out custom one pro. it does everything you want, and you can attach mic to it

if you want to actually block out noise at tournaments though, then i think you should go for IEM with the earmuff shit over it that actual pros use

Feel like shouting out Bose because I've had the same wired pair of headphones for over 5 years now. Absurdly high comfort and quality, cost me just under $200 when I bought them.
As a rule of thumb for headphones, don't worry about extra functionality and you'll be the happiest.

HD 660 S or DT 1990?
>>
>>68824284
I've got HD650 and DT1990 and I love them both and am having trouble deciding which to get rid of. Only thing I'll say is what you may well have already heard: HD650 can make any source sound as decent as it ever will, while DT1990 can be harsher on bad recordings or low-quality encodes, but more impressive on well-recorded stuff. Assuming the HD660S is an upgrade across the board I think I'd lean toward that but you really can't go wrong here as far as I'm concerned
>>
>>68824368
Thanks, anon.

>>68824284
i thought about buying the HD660s too but I read tyll review https://www.innerfidelity.com/content/sennheiser-hd-660-s-over-ear-open-headphones

and he says it's not that much better than the HD600 and 650 so I bought the HD600 instead for cheaper. Tyll mention in the treble of hd660 it becomes a bit "grainy" but idk if thats true.
>>
>>68824284
I made that choice yesterday and after reading comparisons and reviews I went with the 1990. Seems like the better all-rounder.

BOSE QC35 Series I

I fell for the QC35 meme a year and a half ago and obtained a pair for less than $200. My fiance borrowed my pair and now wants something with similar sound cancelling and sound quality. I'm looking for headphones that are decent enough to mimic either one or both of those qualities for one of her Christmas gifts this year. Got any recommendations for me, /g/?

Bose has a pretty garbage sound signature, I'll be honest with you.
As far as wireless headphones go theyre ok, build quality and sound wise.
Also this is /hpg/ so if you want Bluetooth headphones the usual recommendation is buy normal headphones and a Bluetooth receiver

Wtf happened to this general? I've been gone for a while and return only to see that it has gone to shit. There are people asking legitimate questions like what amplifiers to buy or what headphones to get, only to receive a shitty meme answer in the end. Fuck all of you guys, fucking Reddit is unironically more helpful than you fucks.
>>
>>68825247
I agree, I wrote carefully for about 20 minutes asking what to get and basically got no answer. Great experts in here.
>>
>>68823872
yes they cancel noice just fine, when they are playing its hard to notice anything else. In that price range its really some of the best you can get, they use them in studios often because they do exactly that and are relatively cheap. Just make sure you get the impedance you can drive properly.
t. used one for 2 years living next to a busy fkn road
>>
>>68825345
So which version should I buy? 80 ohm or 32 ohm? I will never use amplifiers and I want it for my phone and PC occasionally.
>>
>>68825247
basically people are poorfags and cant afford nice things, so now amp are a meme and you dont need them and all headphones sucks but the ones that the actual poster own and has ever owned.

probably the 80 ohm, its low enough to be driven by most phones and pc's, theyre better than the 32. You might have to turn the volume up a lot though but that shouldn't matter too much
