Remember to holocaust harmantardons on sight!
First for DAC/AmpsGot gifted a pair of K7XXs. My desktop mobo has s/pdif, is it worth it to pick up an external dac to plug there?
$4000 SR-009 was rated lower in blind tests than a $200 K701http://www.aes.org/e-lib/browse.cfm?elib=17441LOL, Stax headphones are literally audiophool garbage

Can somebody for crying out loud give me a serious answer and help me?What's the best way to listen to music? Headphones or Speakers?Should I buy in ear or over ear headphones for serious music listening?Any specific product recommendations?
>>69313553>in ear headphonesbased
>>69313553Not going to be very helpful but its personal preference........
>>69313553If you want to get into room treatment speakers are better. You could also take LSD and/or mdma. Then it doesn't really matter.
>>69313571but how can in ear be better? over ear isolate sound so isnt it more professional?

new photo havent updated in a while I got a new headband for my stax as well as a Headarc and earpads but not sure if i wanna pull the old earpads off since they are still good
forgot photo lol
>>69314566>not sure if i wanna pull the old earpads off since they are still goodIf it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.
>>69314603Have you ever tried them?
I want a comfortable, reliable and durable headphones that I can use to play video games and watch videos with.as inexpensive as possible.plz help, thank you based persons
>>69314613nope. i live in freedomland so stax do not exist here apparently.
>>69314620superlux hd330 (open), takstar pro 82 (closed-back), shp9500s (open) (in order of price)
>>69314640What if they suck though?
>>69314647these are all absolute trashksc75 is what you want. sounds way better than all of these combined and its 15 bucks
>>69314650desu ive bought headphones that suck just to say i have them. if they suck i'll let everyone here know they suck.
>>69314659>ksc75>t.zeosksc nobass, on-ear ugly looking trash. The ones i recommended look decent, all have great bass except for the 9500s, wich makes up for it by having great soundstage and comfort. but most of all, they don't look ugly.
>>69314647i have used superluxes in the past and they all broke within 6 months. i don't want to use chinkshit stuff anymroe.
>>69314666Desu I can't wait to see them. Desu
>>69314679shp9500 have severe earrape distortion and treble.try again sapphire.
>>69314682hd330 has non-replacable cable but will last you longer than 668B. if 668B had a different aux connector i'd recommend that, but indeed. with the aux 668b and other superlux hp's have they won't last long.
>>69314679I thought the soundstage on it was smol.
>>69314696oh and you`ll spend 80 bucks on earrape and treble bleed. plus that's a t. zeos meme.ksc75 is at least not 80 dollars and sounds sooooo much better than the ships.
>>69314719no the ships have great soundstage. everything else about them is garbo.
>>69314705I want 5-10 years durability. none of this buying a new headphone every 6 months crap. I tried to save money with chinkshit but I end up spending more over time. taught me right.
>>69314747get hd650/akg k712 then and stop buying "as inexpensive as possible"
>>69314647hd330 review said the pad is uncomfortable
The best headphones in the world for the accurate reproduction of the best genre of music : silence.
>>69314747I've had my hd330's for 4 years now. I eq 8k -3db and they sound great. Look up some reviews.
>>69314767They feel better than the 668B's stock pads.And you can always get valour pads from ali if you want to keep it cheap.
>>69314754>and stop buying "as inexpensive as possible"I am not saying cheap shit or have a price ceiling. im saying i want reliable at the lowest price possible. if 5years+ requires $500 as minimum then that would qualify as inexpensive as possible.
>>69314754>akg k712That's chinkshit level reliability with very little repairability in terms of parts available to buy and easily replace.
>>69314813hd650 then. i dont own k712 yet but you can get the genuine austrian ones for 200 bucks on amazon.de
>>693148351/You should keep every single cent for the sake of buying headphones that do not suck. 2/unless your computer is particularly garbage the chances of a dac/amp noticeably improving the sound is nil 3/investing any money into external audiophoolery when your main pair of headphones is a K7XX is really dumb
>>69314826>genuine austrian onesThey're still built in a way that leads to guaranteed failure (stress on soldered parts that will end up breaking down the line, because of the way the two cups are connected together for that single cable connection), lack a parts network (only really find earpad replacements and that's about it. Compared to how you can build a full headphone from the ground up with Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic)https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/5fzdru/rantrage_thread_need_advice_please_akg_k712s/This isn't a QC issue, like it may happen on some other headphones, where some will see a solder failure on a few models here and there. This is a design issue and every single K712 out there are guaranteed to break if you use them long enough.
>>69314955ah ok i wont get akgs then. hd650 is my recommendation.
>>69312894I’ve heard that. But the link is behind a paywall. Can you show a labeled graph or a paragraph describing the findings? A lot of anons have claimed that link actually shows Stax test the highest.
>>69314583Dude you still use Windows 7? Get over yourself and update.
I'm happy with my DT 1990 and think they're superior to the rest of mid-fi and bottom hi-fi. How do harmantardons cope with this?
>BudgetFlexible, preferably around 50 bucks but eh>LocationIreland>SourceRazer Phone>Type of headphoneNouse cancelling, wireless preferred but not needed.

>>69315912>around 50 bucks>Nouse cancelling, >Noise cancelling are all closed, right? Dude every single headphone under $150 that delivers "noise cancelling" delivers placebo amount of it : that is, it doesn't work well enough to be better than having basic physical isolation at the level of a DT770.
>>69315710I'm happy with my HD600 and think they're superior to the rest of mid-fi, bottom-fi and high-fi. How do subjectivists cope with this?
>>69316022Nikita doesn't hate sennheiser. >>69316060How do you cope with Sennheisers being worse than bluetooth headphones?
>>69316060Unsure, I'm not deaf so HD600 don't cut it for me.
>>69316053That's not true at all.
Reminder that STAX is literally a chinkshit company and that if you can't speak Japanese you're literally a fucking 100IQ retard
>>69316130Could that be related to estrogen levels and how they affect tissues? Most harmantardons are probably sissies or basedboys. My testosterone levels are healthy and I find HD600 muddy and boring.
Should I EQ to flatten out the frequency response chart for my headphones? Is there a widely accepted “optimal curve” or is it personal preference?
>>69316210Literally personal preference, but I wouldn't use it too much cause it's electric distortion
>>69316210Do not fall for the harmantardon shilling. Those presets just mud the sound.
Should i get L300s now or wait until near the end of the year to get L700s
>>69316234No they don't, retard

>Ground feedback loop from my sound cardFucking hell I have to buy an actual sound setup now, don't I
>>69316118>That's not true at all.Everything sold for less than a QC25 has less mid/upper mid isolation with ANC active than the QC while.. passive. Basically cheap ANC only gives you about -10dB on lower mid/bass in the absolute best case scenario. It's fucking worthless.
Stax make a two clicking sounds when you turn off the amp. Shitcans confirmed
>>69316273>you're listening to mud You never heard a stax in your life. I'm sure even a fucking lifeless troll like you would stop this campaign if you did bother listening to one.

>>69316760>>69316773Yeah I agree with >>69314852I tested it myself and honestly unless you get extremely well known headphones that are actually hard to drive you won't notice a difference if your current onboard audio is fine.
>>69316760>When will this meme end?When AKG stops producing this garbage. Which is surely going to happen at some point, Samsung doesn't really care about these headphones and new development is focused on wireless and ANC. Heck they have moved the 712 from Slovakia to China too.

>>69316820>Heck they have moved the 712 from Slovakia to China too.Yeah.. This is pretty much why i'm hesitant to buy one. Not only because of quality(control), but i hate the chinese and don't want money from the west pumping into 3rd world chinkholes.

Does anybody EQ their stax? I just boost the sub bass by a few dB
Anyone else content with their headphones and have no desire to upgrade?
>>69316828>Friend said bullets wireless are good but reviews aren't so good..I recently bought a OnePus 6T, which comes with included wired versions of these. They are surprisingly good for a bundled IEM that only cost $20 retail. As someone who often has issues with IEMs, I also found them to not be too fiddly in sound signature / insertion (some IEMs require a really perfect fit to get bass to behave the way it's supposed to)I still don't really use them much beside trying them out of curiosity but that's because I hate IEMs in general, over-ear headphones or GTFO for me.

>>69317103>I wish they were 20$ lol, it's 85$ where I live.$20 is the wired, not wireless, version. The wired bullets is noted to have the same sound as the wireless, so I gave you my opinion on the sound. I don't know about the battery life, build etc of wireless because I have the wired ones.>Are they worth it in your opinion? Or should I go with something else.>Have you tried any other wireless inears? If so, do you recommend any?I haven't. I'm not into inears, I only tried them because they came bundled with my phone and I was curious. Sound wise I'd rank the bullets as above average compared to many closed headphones I've used. They're really great. From purely a sound POV, if you like IEMs I'd consider them very much worth it. I don't know the specifics of the wireless version though, so they may or may not be good when it comes to things like maintaining a stable wireless connection, avoiding stutters, distance you can use them from the BT source etc.

>>69317523Their reputation seems to have nailed them to the ground, because I have yet to even hear a peep about their new release and yet their new release would have been the only time I'd be curious about those american exclusive products : their new electrostatic headphones. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=33455$700 with included portable electrostatic amp.

I bought the Sony Mdr-xb950n1 headphones. Had a really low bugdet and no time to make any HC setups.Also really wanted super portable ones.Found them at a sale for about 130$. After few days of using these I was surpised. (Always was a IEM guy.)For 130$ the sound out of these is just perfect for me.What does /g/ think of china brands like Sony in the budget category?
>>69318051>I live literally 30 minutes from the beach and I hate it.I only need to get through a crosswalk to get there, not 30 minutes. We've got really great weather between the Sun's glorious warming rays and the cooling breeze coming from the ocean. Not a single commieblock in sight.

>>69318117>save 30 or spend 50 moregee goy what do u need 80 dollars for?isn't there a whole protest in france about not being able to pay for living expenses?but apparently spending less money on something is considered poverty in your country. entitled yellow vests amirite lads?
>>69318135I'm not going to overly develop on the gilet jaune topic on a /g/ general, so I'll say this and nothing else : the gilet jaune movement is a movement mostly led by butthurt. It's not really about the economy, or the new tax on gas. It's butthurt caused by people getting -real- angry over Macron's regular taunts about the lazy and uneducated. It's not a single particular law or economic event that created this ""crisis"" but his disdain for the people. A disdain I can only empathize with after seeing the results of 8 weeks of butthurt.
aye, euros tend to be pretty entitled when you get right down to it.when someone acts that way here desu we tell them to try it out in europe. maybe they'll prefer it.usually they shut up for a bit after that because they realize how good they have it here.
Make no mistake, none of those professional complainers of the yellow vest/gilet jaune movement in France would ever agree to live in the US and work the hard hours, lose all their holidays, lose their health coverage and so on.The people who are currently rioting are rioting about a whole lot of.. nothing.

Well fuck, forgot to check this thread before ordering myself a replacement to AKG 530.I ordered the Superlux HD681 Evo headphones.Did I fuck up?
>>69314472BasedMine are on the way
>>69314705What are you talking about retardMy HD669 have a really nice build quality, too bad they sound like mud
>>69316179YesMy testosterone level is 829ng/dL measured and everything but Beyer sounds like mud to me
>>69318631>HD681 EvoHaven't heard the cheap chink shit but the graphs sure look based.
>>69316179What do you think of bass on the HD600
>>69318733Can one think about something that does not exist? Bass on the HD600, that is.
>>69316210Yes, download and install equalizerAPO, then download and install hesuvi, a GUI for it which has all of the necessary headphone presets with lots of choices for different headphone make and model, check out this page https://github.com/jaakkopasanen/AutoEq
>>69316968Please post that cute Asuna
>>69318733It has adequate bass if you're not a nigger.
>>69318579I have stax IEMs too
>>69318796>not being a nigger
>>69318727Yeah reading through the review, it's good shit for the money I paid.Hope the chink quality build lasts me until I move later this year.
>>69318695You fucktard. Superlux only has good open-backs.
>>69318875That makes zero sense, if the closed backs are nobass, then how bad are the open ones? 669 is literally closed 668B
>>69318726No it isn’t.
lcd2 prices are creeping back up and aren't $500 anymore which is nice anyone else losing the will to live btw?>>69316179harman sounds bassy as fuck compared to most shit. What you said would make more sense if you accused them of being high test gorillas your opinion is trash either way though
>>69318936A whole lot of money went into gathering garbage.
>>69318936For the record, the only good EQs are the Headphones.com ones. O90 are not bad, but Innerfidelity are trash with too much treble and no bass.
>>69318977Lying boomer detected.
>Can't get my entire poor-fi setup this paycheckFuck
>>69318893Read reviews on them. Bass is always good.
>>69319013What do I need to read reviews for if I own the 669 and 668B are those, but semi-open? I know how sound waves work, those have even less bass
>>69319030>I know how sound waves worklol no you don'tyou can tune sound however you want just based on the way you build earpads, DT1990 come with B pads that enhance bass and A pads that are for the audiocunts who hate life
>>69319050Same earpads, same driver. Any questions?
>>69318936>harman sounds bassy as fuck>anyone else losing the will to liveI'd want to neck myself too if I was a harman soiboy
>>69319030hd330 has more and better bass than 668B.
>>69318972I use oratory1990's on the 660s and audeze's settings for the lcd2, sometimes with a bass boost. Strongly prefer both to the stock fr. I EQ'd my dt990 by ear for a while before I bought my he500 and it was hard to do because I have trouble differentiating between a higher pitched tone and a louder tone. >>69318960your opinions are shit and of no usetotal for those headphones including shipping: $930 current secondhand value of the pictured lot: $1350 Now pic related is a lot of money spend accumulating trash. two m1060szeos viewer for certain>>69319117you're just dumb it's okay. you're the 1990 shill right? i fell for the beyer treble = detail meme too back in 2013. enjoy them while you can i guess
>>69318289i bought a venue just so i could have an elvis impersonator on speed dial.
>>69317862mechanical keyboards are a meme
>>69318245aye, it's so hard to get health coverage in the us.it's almost like healthcare costs money and we'd rather pay for it so we can get it on demand rather than having to go through the government for permission to live.
>>69319154>beyer shillNo, I just think people who stroke it to curves don't belong here, or on any equipment forum for that matter
>>69319062You don't own the headphone but you're confident the earpad material content and holes are identical? whatever. There's a graph on the internet directly stating you're BTFO, showing a lot more midbass on the headphone you're suspicious of being lesser bass just because of being semi open.You're the type who knows just enough to believe he knows, yet knows not enough to understand how little he knows.
Howdy, is the Takstar army of /hpg/ faring well?
>>69319163I need Topre switches in my life
>>69319217i tried topre. just sold it recently. you may have seen the pics i posted before of ym desk.pleeeease save yourself the effort. get something good.
>>69319274>>69319217topre is life
>>69319217>>69319274MK keyboard autism is the dumbest thing ever. I have yet to understand what is the purpose of it besides a preference in noise making. My WPM is the same on mechs vs flat profile membrane kbs.
>>69319274>>69319288I already ordered it. Should arrive on Monday
>>69319199I gotta admit I'm btfoWell, at least I have 1770 coming in the mail, so there's that
>>69316762Any smart anon wanna help me understand how to read this picture chart? I don't get how diffuse field works and how it helps audio quality.
>>69319198yeah i love stroking my cock to my hand drawn recreations of the harman target and the he500 jerkpad curve, sometimes i'll even stick a finger in my ass dry and rub the prostate to really get worked up. you simply must try graphs my dude and stop being such a square wave. everyone is doing it. compare the lcd2c to the lcd4z, dt1990 to the dt880, just stare at the er4sr gorgeous line. god that shit gets me. the. fuck. off. >>69319217they're pretty great but any "good" switch will be just as enjoyable to type on, topre, ergoclear, retooled 62g mx blacks lubed, box pale blue, etc. just get a top tier switch for each category and call it a day
>>69319154If you can even begin to EQ using parametric and graphical settings by ear then you're better than I am, I use the HD600 HP setting and the DT 880 250 ohm HP setting on Hesuvi. I'm still a pleb so those 2, plus audio technika ATH-M50s are the only headphones I've had. I still haven't had the cash to get the HD800s, or put thought into what might be a tier above what i currently have
>>69319358graphs are fine harman cucks are the problem
>>69319353lemme know how it works out.for the first few months it was the best keyboard i ever owned. but since it has rubber domes in it they quickly wore out, the enter key housing began binding, and it became a piece of shit.now i'd rather use this fuckin model f XT i have laying around just because it always provides consistent keyfeel.
What is a good amp to pair with an Atom amp?
>>69319735you mean dac?topping d10 or d30
>>69319357Diffuse field is the target response curve used to generate the cumulative spectral decay that chart is displaying.Basically that chart is telling you how fast various frequencies lose energy in the headphone.
Where were you when Marv fucking obliterated RME ADI-2 DAC?>I'll put it bluntly. I have not been so offended by the sound of anything for a long long time. This is the kind of sound that I would expect to come from ChiFi manufacturer iBasso. I didn't think it would be possible for any manufacturer to make something that sounded so nasty in 2018. One day, I will pick up an RME and find out what percentage of each part contributes to its horrid sound. Is it 50/50 DAC and amp, or 35/65 or 65/35? I'm curious.

It was like it was sucking up pressure inside and really hurting me.
>>69319990>trusting a paid shill about literally anythingAnon, why are you doing this to yourself?I seriously thought that no one except SBAF faggots cares about his audiophoolery.
>>69319755um no sweetie
>>69320058I bet that nobody here actually has as much experience about DACs and amps as Marv has.
>>69320086Maybe, but listening to his subjective, absolutely-not-influenced-by-sponsors opinions over hard facts (measurements on ASR in case of funky circuits) is kinda stupid.And I'm not even talking about RME DAC right now, just the snake oil den that SBAF is.
>>69319990RMEanon on suicide watch!
>>69320073Really quite good for the price.You need to spend significantly more for better quality, which requires wading through the snake oil tier bullshit that pops up in those price ranges.Unless you're doing professional audio mastering, a topping d10 or d30 is the best value.Or, you can go full snake-oil like this dude:>>69319910and spend $5000 on placeboware.
Hi friendsWould a creative soundblaster Z be enough to power headphones like the HD600 or DT990s? I'm not sure which ones I'll buy but I need an amp and would preffer if it was a soundcard
>>69313553speakers sound better if you spend enough moneyheadphones sound better per shekel spent
>>69320213if this isn't a troll post, just buy am external DAC rather than a meme tier gaymer soundcard. if you get a transparent one you'll never need to upgrade it, because the good ones all sound the same. I have a JDS labs ODAC
>>69320236>external DAC>without amp???
>>69320236But the soundcard is pretty cheap and comfy since I won't have shit lying around my desk while all the amp/dacs I see are pretty expensive stuff
>>69320257I meant get a DAC rather than a meme gaymer soundcard. He still needs an amp>>69320295It's not comfy, it's shit. Just buy a DAC and you'll never even need to buy a soundcard for any computer in your life again. It's a good long term investment. And so is a nice transparent amp. And about the stuff lying around on your desk, tough shit. If you want good quality suck it up
>>69320322His best choice would be some cheap DAC/Amp combo (like E10K), I think.
>>69320352>E10KOkay that's not that much more expensive than the soundcar and from the looks of it seems tiny enough. If it's good enough for either headphones I mentioned I'll get it I guess
>>69320382don't buy a fucking amp stupidit's a waste of money for everything except electrostats
>>69320352Yeah sure, I have the JDS labs O2 and ODAC combo myself, but anything transparent for a decent price will be enough forever and will power good headphones, and his games will sound better than with a shitty Creative soundcard. I used to buy meme gaymer shit, Razer headphoned and all that. Now I just use my HD600s
>>69320396wtf what do I buy then
>>69320429good headphonesthen plug them into your pc like normal
>>69320429Buy a nice single malt islay whiskey and hooker instead of the amp
>>69320429You buy a decent enough amp. don't listen to that retard. Just buy a decent DAC and amp and you're set for life
>>69320444And they'll sound fine? Everyone on the internet is saying HD600s would need amp and meme shit but idk>>69320451That sounds good tbqh
>>69320463Yeah, anon when you become my age you stop buying stuff and buy experience instead.
>>69320463yes they will sound fine
>>69312848can someone recommend me a good set of noise cancelling headphones
>>69320463HD600 *might* not get loud enough with motherboard's power output.You'll also most likely hear noise and might get audible harmonic distortion.So yeah, better try out a DAC/Amp combo in some audio store or just buy a cheap one and see for yourself.
>>69320517We hire live musicians here, what are you, poor?
>>69320463 get an amp and a dac, you faggot. how many fucking times does it have to be said
>>69320528>>69320523don't buy anything unless you need it, amazon shipping is two days away
>>69320463I got an amp+dac and it made no difference with HD 600.Get an amp if you don't have enough volume on the HD 600. Get a dac if you hear any hissing/distortion on your HD 600. That's it.
>>69317650>Rubbing buttons>double clickingTruly a great $120 product.
>>69320517qc35sony are fucking are dark sounding shit and can't connect to more than one device

>Still using MicroUSB in 2019ONORE AUDIO-TECHNICA!
>>69312848For the price, how are the Bose Soundlink II?I'm looking for something comfy, wireless, portable, and a bit on the warmer side.
>>69321750MicroUSB is garbage no matter what time it is.It just so happens that now is the time to replace it.
>>69321985better than everything using barrel connectors or those shitty proprietary chargers of the past.
>>69321960Bose is garbage
How good are these, are they worth $500?
>>69322108absolutely not wtf
>>69322108only beyers are worth that much
>>69322130If that's the case then how much are the likes of B&O and B&W really worth?
>>69322151it's 2 dollar chinkshit they sell to normies who think ANC and wireless = good
