    Default final verdict !!going after ultrasone HFI 580.need your opinion

    i dont dare to buy anything without your final words.i opened a thread in headfi for suggesting me a headphone under 120$.many guys suggested me the ultrasone HFI 580 as my preference was mainly good bass and sound stage together. its costing me 119$. i will order on amazon.co.bd on tuesday.and . so need your quick opinion.have i made the right decision?
    here is the link of the headphone.

    WOW I thought they were priced higher like $150 .
    Great choice, indeed. But one thing I want to tell you before buying, S-Logic is kinda like stereo widening effect not the terrible spacy sound you might be expecting. Hit or miss but good thing is most people like it or even if you dont you'll get used to it.
    Although I would strongly suggest you to buy the Ultrasone. But as you were looking for more options there's a another headphone that meets all your criteria, Fischer Audio FA-011. But an amp is a MUST for this headphone.
    And CALs where fantastic options when they were $55 but they are $99 now.

    If you are okay with an open back headphone, the AD 700 will give you a bigger soundstage. WIll not extract as much detail as the 580, but still.

    M50 will give you more bass but the sound signature is a love or hate kinda thing. What are you driving the headphones with?

    Do you need positional audio? Do you play any game competitively? Do you need to listen to footsteps?

    If you answered yes to any of those questions then you will need to sacrifice some bass. I had a Shure 750DJ and it's bass was great but I was losing out on positional audio and that was a huge loss for me as I play CSS and BF3 MP. I now have a KRK KNS8400, and it has substantially less bass but it's pos audio and clarity is amazing.

    But you told before you need bigger soundstage. If this is the case I mean you're just looking for bassy headphone then, you have plenty of options.
    Anyway the more you'll search for options the more you'll get confused. Just buy the Ultrasone HFI-580 or the CAL, you'll be happy.
    At $75 CAL is a great option, so is Ultrasone HFI-580 at $120. The CAL should be better if you dont want to buy an amp. But Ultrasone's built quality is better than CAL.
    How about this CAL+Xonar DG(4k [email protected] computers) ?

    I guess it is upto you.....get the ultrasones if you want. These have great bass but slightly recessed mids I guess, anyways, amazing hp. & it's always about how you feel about a thing, I like detail so I got a Shure SRH440 which lacks in bass & soundstage.

    Soundstage can best be described through an example. An artist singing from the bathroom and the same artist singing in the concert hall. A headphone with a bigger soundstage will make that song sound like it was sung in the concert hall and vice versa.

    Positional audio does have some correlation with soundstage which is why many recommend open back/closed back with decent soundstage + emulation for gaming

    You might want to try looking at Fischer Audio FA-003/Brainwavz HM5/ LUNDY premium Hi-Fi headphones (they are the same, just search and see if you like their sound signature)

    It doesnt have as much bass as I think youre looking for, and the soundstage is decent but not massive. A very good and well balanced headphone though and benefits from amping as well

    M50 has decent bass but the soundstage is very minimal. Also as I mentioned before the sound signature is not to everyones liking, some dislike it and some love it.
