You only need an amp if your headphones don't get loud enough

It may be to you if you're using trash, but there was a clear difference between my stock audio, stock audio with Fii0 E10, and my stock audio on my new laptop with the X2HR's and the K5 Pro DAC/Amp.

That's what the amps for, you hear more at lower volumes so you don't have to blast it into your ears.

>do you listen to everything on these? I've been curious to get a pair of Grado (or some other open headphone) but won't bass-heavy music sound like shit, or rather don't sound at all?
I've tried it on most genres, especially bass heavy ones. I'm not a basshead myself so I can't really specify much but it's there, sub-bass is faint but the bass is serviceable. They do a good the job on tracks like hole in one and girly face from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5-AsZOwZmc they're tight and very present. If it's any consolation, if the mixing great and your source is good enough, they're absolutely great for rock, music, classical, jazz and live music from those genres. electronic music maybe not so much but they still sound good. the treble rape is real but you get accustomed to it with time also my ears are medium-sized I guess but I can wear them for hours
>>
>>102813129
Fuck i have a pair of broken old denon ah-g300 that were amazing, and was my main mixing headphones.
I knew if it sounded good on them, it would sound good anywhere.

I use STAX L300 LEs sometimes and my HE1000s. They both offer a unique sound, but I definitely use the HE1000s more because they are better for actually jamming out.
>>102810892
These 100% do make a difference if you're buying above to $50 range lol. Recently upgraded my energizer for my STAX and I can make out a dsicernable positive difference. The bass is a lot better with the new one.

Do yourself a favor and upgrade the pads on your audiotechnica headphones, it makes such a difference with comfort and soundstage. ZMF lambskin earpads are amazing and what I use, but they are thick ass pads so people may think you have problems if you wear them in public.
>>
I got a pair of AKG K553s and they sound great but they are shit for mixing. Not enough high end. My mixes will sound trebly and shrill through anything else. What are some good headphones with decent high end. The cheaper the better. I already spent 200 on these and it’s past the return date

Opinion on Bluetooth headphones? I'm thinking of getting a pair for listening to music and doing stuff around the room, working out indoors etc.

All bluetooth codecs degrade the sound, but some are better. Compatbility is a crapshoot so you'll probably be stuck with SBC or AAC.

I use the ATH-M50x but I'm not really a fan of them. I use the default pads and the clamp force is a bit uncomfortable. Most importantly, I can't fucking use them without EQ-ing the shit out of them, cause the highs in these headphones are unbearabl and ear-wrecking.

They're affordable (below 200€) and flat enough that I can hear everything clear without bias. They're an American brand so kudos to them. Fuck the proprietary removable cable, but cheaper it's not a good one, more expensive and it's either wireless or way more expensive and overkill.

Sennheiser hd 206. I've been using the same pair for like 10 ten years, and a week ago, I ordered a new pair instead of buying fresh pads.

I still haven't figured out what pair I'd actually like to buy. Something with accurate sound like these, but with less leakage, but there's nothing really in that price range. I should have bought a pair before the pandemic, because there's no way I'll be able to decide now with all the price hikes.

HD 58X or DT 990??, which is best?.
>>
>>102814933
They're not bad at all, they're great, it's just the usual 4chan thing where anything popular gets ragged on for no reason. You can't even mention them on the /g/ HPG threads because all the faggy Senn and Beyer chuds will shout you down and show you 50 graphs proving...nothing.

50X's have a rich, thick sound but still have a nice clean top end, and they take well to EQ'ing. I love mine and I've tried a lot of the other big players.
>>
>>102816210
Never going to sound as good as a quality wired set and you're stuck with the internal DAC/amp, but they're useful for some situations. I have a pair of mid-range on ear BT JBL's that I use for travel and they're fine for that purpose.
>>
>>102818412
The fuck? You have a bum set of M50X's, friendo. They are known for being very mellow and easy to listen to, either you have your highs EQ'd to the moon or you have a shit audio source.
