Not sure what you're trying to achieve with this argument, is it about the bass? Because good seals are much harder to achieve on dummy heads (and by extension actual peoples heads) as opposed to flat couplers.

good job relying on other people's impressions rather than owning or hearing either of them yourself. you also said the comfort was superior to the ma900 but the reviewer says:
>I think Sony is most comfortable phone you can wear, compared to DT880 you have no slight headband pressure. It is like to wear nothing.

your opinions hold no weight because you ahve to resort to an impression on a headfi to actually back yourself up

Elaborate. Flat coupler measurements are often accurate representations of the sound signature of a given headphone, with a dummy head you'll have the HRTF which you'll want to compensate for to get accurate results. They may be more accurate than flat coupler measurements but not by such a significant margin that flat coupler measurements should be dismissed.

That's because you've been using them with inadequate amps. Interesting you'd consider even buying spritzer's amps when your opinions collide with his to such a degree.

That's the point, being able to spend that amount of money on headphones without taking much of a hit from it. By saving up for it he could just mean he's saving spending money. If you aren't allocating your income apppropriately there's probably a reason why you're poor.

Best Headphones for Vaporwave, Touhou or weeb music and sometimes power metal. Price range is good with me, something that doesn't have a long ass cable I have which is the Berhydynamic DT 990 Premium. Also have a Fii0 as well.

Electrostats work very differently with amps and the power delivery of the amp has a very big influence on the midrange to treble regions.

I've always liked speakers and headphones with a bit of mid range emphasis. While this thread seems to be full of people jerking off to graphs, people shouldn't forget to enjoy the music.

>>62866301
O2 shilling is pretty rare here these days.
>>
>>62866301
I asked if you can prove it? Surely if X amp changed the response as compared to Y amp, it can be quantified with a simple frequency response measurement of the headphone itself.

if you're using eq just get 5 dollar earphones

REEEEE Sonarworks. But seriously, they use a melanin-heavy target curve and their high frequency adjustments can potentially worsen response for some users instead of improving it because they don't have access to individual users' HRTF. Cannot recommend.

>>62866404
You only think theres no bass because you have never heard clean bass in your entire life.

My bad, it was the older Koss Pro4AAA though needs modification to get the best out of it and are pretty damn old (ie during the 70s). Koss K/711, KRD /711 and Koss Reference One use series 2 drivers guaranteed 100% of the time being the best and the least modding to sound good. Avoid the Pro3AAA Plus as they're the absolute worst of the bunch and are Series 3 in a different enclosure color (black rather than tan.)

Ok guys so I'm currently using a pair of ATH AD-700X cans because they are highly recommended for gaming. They definitely are a marked improvement over the shitty headset I had been using. I can't help but shake the feeling that they're just a bit meh though. I also had a pair of Superlux HD668Bs that I returned quite quickly because I found them uncomfortable plus I had it in my head at the time that the 700X must be better because of the many "gaming reviews" it had and I'm ashamed to say, because they were more expensive. I can't remember a lot about how they sounded, but I can remember them being much better than the aforementioned shitty headset.

I'm looking for a pair of open back, over ear cans that have an open, accurate soundstage with good positional audio that are also relatively neutral and comfortable. My 700Xs are open and have a large soundstage (not sure if its as big as people meme though) but they are not very comfortable and I don't think their sound is anything special. Budget is flexible, don't have a DAC/AMP but plan to get one. I have been looking at the AKG 612 and various Sennheisers around the same proce, but yeah any and all advice would be much appreciated.

I returned the HD700, HD650 and HD800 from different vendors. I'll buy the HD660S and determine if it's worth keeping.

>>62873359
HD600 are far from neutral, they're slightly V shaped headphones with a moderate mid bass hump and serious sub-bass roll-off. Why can't you accept that your HD600 is not the end-all of neutrality?

Also remember that saying that FR is the only thing that matters instantly outs you as an angry poorfag and removed what little credibility you have left.

because you a lot of you neutral fags are disingenuous as fuck and refuse to bring EQ into the argument as well. it's insufferable. no, the hd600 is not the best headphone. yes it is the closest to neutral. no that does not mean everyone prefers that. no that does not make it the best sounding headphone because it conforms to your bias. no, there is no standard for objective neutrality for headphones.
>>
>>62873423
Okay good, then you acknowledge there are better headphones out there. Glad we agree.
>>
>>62873178
hd600 it's the most neutral and therefore the best
>>

>yes it is the closest to neutral
>no, there is no standard for objective neutrality for headphones
wut?
>>
>>62873457
use your noggin. if neutral fags claim there to be a neutral and neutral is X, then the hd600 is closest to that X. you can also have X not be objective and proven.
>>
>>62873428
>yes it is the closest to neutral
It's not the most neutral, there are headphones that are more neutral than the HD600.
>>62873443
What makes other headphones better? I've tried other brands such as HiFiMAN, STAX and Audeze and I find them a sidegrade at best.
>>
>>62873472
>what makes other headphones better
They sound better. Pretty simple m8. Also, the "I've tried" argument is invalid because most of the time when HD600s are disliked, they are told to use them for a week or two, so "I've tried them" is not logically consistent
>>
>>62873135
HD579 are a recent upgrade to them with improved bass extension. Get them instead.
>>
>>62872272
Sub out is good to have if you have bookshelf speakers. Both amps are a solid choice though
>>
>>62873491
In other words, it's an opinion. It's okay, I haven't heard a better headphone than the HD600 and that's my opinion. I've had the HD800, HD650 and HD700 for over a week.

>>62873818 new thread
>>
>>62873762
typically the hf line out adds some form of crossover distortion to the speakers connected to it, and the RCA line out on a sub provides a better signal connection to the sub. You're better off adjusting the volume of the sub with an rca line out, but that's just my personal experience with subs.

In some rare cases, such as with subs like REL, a connection directly to the amp provides better sound but that's a very particular situation and that's the one brand that I know of.

Thanks.
What is the X-over frequenzy of the Yamaha amp's sub out?
If I connect a sub to it, will the regular speakers still get the full range input?
Do I have control over this with the bass setting on the amp?
