Thread: Need suggestion for headphone

  1. #1

    Smile Need suggestion for headphone

    Suggest me a headphone. Budget is around 10k. I will be looking into-

    Comfort-I wear glasses and I do not like the clamped feeling and pain on my head and ear.

    Sound quality-I do no not need over the top bass or studio grade sound quality but clear high/treble, mid and normal bass. I have used both cheap generic headsets and so called gaming pairs (6k thermaltake crap) which sounds muddy, muffled or distorted with unclear highs and mids and excessive bass. I do not want that.

    Build quality-Decent.

    Suggest me something except any kind of gaming branded pairs (unless they are really good) or earphone. I do not need mic so both headphone or headset suggestion is welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    [Sennheiser] HD 558 - good allrounder
    HD 598 - moar soundstage but sound will leak inwards and outwards
    Supurlux HD 681 or Samson SR 850 - good cheap allrounder. less soundstage than both mentioned above tho. a little clampy too.
    Massdrop senheiser pc 37x - "gaming" product from sennheiser. but not bad. sennheiser is a legendary audio company. comparable to HD 598 at a value.
    audio technica ath ad700( very good headphone for competitive gaming but not a very good headphone for overall usage)
    Audio Technica ATH-M50x - very good allrounder
    beyerdynamic DT - 990 series - also very good
    My probable next build: Qisan MagicForce 68 (Outemu switch) / Teamwolf Zhuque+ 87 TKL (Outemu) / Monoprice Select series full size (Outemu/Gateron) / Drevo Gramr 84 TKL (Outemu) • Logitech G102 Prodigy • Deepcool Dukase V3 / Thermaltake Versa U21 • Superlux HD 681 • Creative Sound Blaster E1 • LG 22MP68VQ • SteelSeries QcK • Generic executive chair • others TBA

    djrock please don't bother me. You are in my ignore list so I don't have to see literal poop.

    Was afraid people are going to suggest these headphones. All of them costs over 15k or way more (backpack price) (superlux and samson exception), pc37x- don't know if anyone brings product from massdrop and all of them probably require a dedicated amp which means extra cost.

    So I guess good headphone is not possible for less than 15-20k.

    Thanks for the suggestion guys but good headphone is right now out of my budget.

    Then Kingston HyperX Cloud is good too. Buy the original one that's listed at $78 on Amazon. Cloud II is USB only and has some issues plus being more expensive at $97.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I know it looks and maybe is a little game-y that you don't want bit trust me and others on this, it's VERY good. Basically Kingston just picked up a very good cheap OEM headpphone like Superlux (or in this case QNIX iirc) and rebranded it as their HyperX Cloud. Basically unlike other game-y headsets that boast features first, audio last this one already has audio first since Kingston knows shiit about audio but their chosen OEM does.

    - - - Updated - - -

    And most of these HPs are rated at 50 ohm or less. You don't need dedicated AMP for them really.

    Ath m50 is extremely bass heavy, it is my daily driver because i love bass. But the thing is, it is not a good all rounder, for example if you play games you will be greatly disappointing by its lack of accurate positioning(it has a very close sound stage).

    The backpack price is insane, i bought my parents xbox one s for 395 canadian dollar(including taxes) which roughly translate to 24,000. Right now it is 372 which is around 22k, whereas the cheapest backpack u can get is 29k. Try to find some people who can bring it for you instead of buying via backpack

    - - - Updated - - -

    On the other hand, the ath ad700 is legendary for competitive gameplay, I can pinpoint every sound location. I own a lot of headphones, and no headphone can come closer to what ath ad 700 can deliver in terms of postional accuracy. But the only problem is, like ath m50, it is not balanced. It lacks bass, punch and everything that makes a game or movie enjoyable.

    For dt 990, unless you are buying the 32 ohms version, you need a good amp, i use soundblaster zx soundcard which has a built in 600 ohm headphone amp.

    Hd 558 or 598 or akg k7xx are the best allrounder.

    Samson sr 850 is based on this headphone and i can confidently say that samson sr 850 is one of the best cheapest headphone pairs i have owned(I still use them for my console gaming).

    How about akg k240 studio or sony mdr v6?

    I will not buy headphone now and probably save some more to get hd 598 or dt 770 later (less expensive than dt 990 version-what do you guys think?)

    EDIT: Forget DT770. not for me

    You might try these:

    https://www.amazon.com/Philips-SHP95...words=shp9500s

    Phillips SHP9500, Cheap ($75), good pretty much meets yours requirements.

    Read reviews for SHP9500 so that you can get a feel for the sound signature.

    I have decided to go for either HD 598 or DT990.

    Who gives the best service (reliability and price) when buying things from amazon in BD?

    Which is the better option HD 598c (closed back) or HD 598 SR (open back)? Or DT 990 32 ohm? (the review says DT990 has too bright treble which causes fatigue)

    Getting more and more confused. Thanks for the suggestion but I will stick with 598 or 990 or maybe shp9500. Sticking with widely known and verified performers I guess.

    Go with hd 598 open back. Dt 990 tends to pick up dirt and hair a lot and u need to clean it out a lot. Also unless u r buying the 32 ohm version pf dt 990 u do need a very good headphone amp to power it.

    I will get the 32 ohm if I go for the dt990.

    Any particular advantage of open back over closed back HD598? (the closed back is cheaper though)

    Well open back means more soundstage meaning much more field to hear footsteps [not exactly the footsteps though. that's the job of the surround software (Dolby, Creative SBX, Razer Surround) and the audio source (the game itself)]. At the expense of sound leak and bass (the bang-bang-bang of gunfire). At least they don't heat up as much.
    My probable next build: Qisan MagicForce 68 (Outemu switch) / Teamwolf Zhuque+ 87 TKL (Outemu) / Monoprice Select series full size (Outemu/Gateron) / Drevo Gramr 84 TKL (Outemu) • Logitech G102 Prodigy • Deepcool Dukase V3 / Thermaltake Versa U21 • Superlux HD 681 • Creative Sound Blaster E1 • LG 22MP68VQ • SteelSeries QcK • Generic executive chair • others TBA

    djrock please don't bother me. You are in my ignore list so I don't have to see literal poop.

    Open back means more soundstage so that you have a better positional accuracy compared to closed back. Also they let air pass which means it will be more comfortable than closed back for longer sessions.

    I would say since you are buying only one headphone for all, hd 598 is a better all rounder I would say. I own all the headphones that I initially suggested at the very begining of my post so I do have personal experience with all cans. Dt 990 is good, but it picks up dirt or hair really bad. I had to clear my hair a lot from the cup which would create a buzzing sound getting stuck between the diaframe, which i never did to any of my headphones.

    HD 598 is also seem cheaper here in canada, at around only 250 canadian dollar whereas dt 990 32 ohms is around 287 cad.

    Bass is quite lacking in openbacks. When you hear bass (especially sub-bass) from a closed back HP it will feel like something is trying to suck out the inside of your ears. Weird I know :3. Open backs are more relaxed and better suited for competitive gaming. Closed backs are better for casual immersive gaming.

    If you are spending $200+ then you could also try these

    I forgot to mention that i do not play multi player. And closed back gives better isolation. Do you think the open back is still better solution (open back hd 598 has decent bass according to review which should be enough but you can give your personal experience. Btw why there are two open 598-SR ($169) and SE ($242)?

    I was asking about the facebook group and if you knew about other groups like that. Why would I question the integrity of a BG moderator and an old known member?

    hd598 and dt990 32ohm are are around $170 mark and that has already stretched my budget to the limit. No way I can spend that much even if I want to.
