You keep breaking them because you keep buying shit. If it's your third headphone don't even buy the CAL either, it's not a very durable build, it sounds good but it's like the sort of headphone to recommend to a newcomer or someone who absolutely wants the best sound and literally has no money. If you're a long term headphone user just bite the bullet and buy something decent. Good headphones can last a long time and have easily replaceable parts. Don't end up spending $500 over five years buying garbage to replace garbage.

You surely know the issue, where one goes silent and if you fiddle with the cable you can get it to work as long as you hold it.

You've already bought two headsets before this you said. You -can- spend over $100, you're just not willing to wait until you can do it. So instead of being patient and buying something good once you can afford it, you just keep on buying things that break over and over to get that quick fix.

I bought a pair of SuperLux HD681 for a friend the other day. He only has a motherboard with an integrated sound card, and it couldn't drive them. My Note 8, on the other hand, could.

See, you really can afford more than $100. You spent $140 in one year. If instead of buying the first and second one you had waited until you had all $140 then you could have bought something that didn't fucking break and wouldn't be trying to get a third.

Another variant of staying warm while listening to music.

for classical music lover, is it a necessity to own a pair of HD600?

Now I have X2, K701 and HD700.
X2- the bass is pretty much ruined everything
K701- no good bass at all
HD700- I am satisfied with it. Good sound stage and really "clean" sound.

Is it true that HD600 can bring you the feeling of "in a concert hall"? Or all myth about HD600 is just bullshit.
>>
>>65562191
>K701- no good bass at all
If you think the K701 has no bass, which I also think, then the HD600 is not a real option at all. They're more similar than different headphones, the AKG has a tad more treble and upper midrange energy but it's the closest kin the HD600 has from a competing manufacturer.
> feeling of "in a concert hall"?
If by that you mean soundstage, the HD600 have no soundstage. Going from the HD700 or AKG is going to disappoint you greatly.
>>
Just got DT1990's in today. Time to listen to everything all over again.
>>
>>65562290
Don't forget that pad swapping is done through inserting them on a notch and rotating them. It's very fast and easy if you understand that, if you try to put them on like on older beyer you will suffer. With that said, I'm happier with the bass boosted B pads (which are the ones already set on the headphone) and prefer them over the 880 style tuning of the A.
>>
>>65562348
They already sound great out of the box, but I'll definitely check out the other pads after a few days I'm sure.
>>
>>65562191
>Is it true that HD600 can bring you the feeling of "in a concert hall"? Or all myth about HD600 is just bullshit.
nobody says this about HD600. you want soundstage, sell all of that crap and buy an HD800.

It seems like reviews are saying M40Xs are clearer. Are DT240s bigger at least? They actually seem smaller to me on photos but I don't have a way to properly compare.
>>65557697
They're nearly twice as expensive as M40Xs here and in retrospect isn't going past 100 freedombucks a waste with integrated audio anyway?
>>65557770
I don't necessarily buy memes but I do own some.
>>65558200
I dunno, from the research on M40Xs I did so far it seems that they're mostly comfortable until a certain head size past which they quickly get unbearable. You're probably past that point. The easiest way for me to find out where I fall on that scale would be to just buy them. I am tall but I don't think my head is big.

I am set on buying the M40Xs. In case scenario they're uncomfortable I'll return them and get shekels back.
>>
>>65562711
>in retrospect isn't going past 100 freedombucks a waste with integrated audio anyway?
No, and high impedance headphones are less degraded by the typical (for pcs, because macs tend to have really low imped) high output impedance of onboard setups. As long as they get loud enough for you then something like the 880 would still be a million times better than a m40x even if you have no amp.

Had been using my HD555 with an AV Receiver for years, and now that I'm looking into eventually upgrading to the HD600, I decided to get a cheap DAC+amp that's able to power them, so I got the SMSL M6. Honestly, I wasn't expecting to notice this much of a difference as I'm doing right now and I would have got a dedicated DAC/amp combo a long time ago if I knew that it was an actual upgrade even if I kept the same headphones.
>>
>>65563128
>HD555
Extremely sensitive to high output impedance.
>AV Receiver
99% of which have high output impedance.
>SMSL M6
10 ohm output impedance, so technically there's still room to get something better out of your headphone. But the HD600 won't be affected by just 10 ohm so there's no reason to upgrade to an actually decent amp.

I wouldn't totally sell everything I own but I am going to start condensing by selling off my least used headphones once I get more time in with them. I expect to end up with a dynamic and a planar and thats it at some point.
I actually use all three rather often. The lcd2 and he500 are distinctly better at different things. On the music I have that is mastered decently with nice vocals the he500 is glorious but on stuff maybe without vocals or that is mastered poorly I prefer the lcd2. Then for non-electronic music or when I don't feel like having 10 pounds hanging off my head I use the hd650.

Current IEMs are MDREX15LP (as far as I can tell from pictures), the sound quality is quite good despite the price. Super comfy, would like something with similar comfort.

Too much treble on the Takstar Pro 82, MSR7, M50x, too much bass on the Crossfade m100

It doesn't do vocals as well because it has sucked out upper mids that give it an artificial tonality. The he500 does not have sucked out upper mids.

Mice only report movements. They aren't affected by the computer because there is nothing the computer can do to change the mouses behavior. Measurements of the mouse should be all you need to quantify the performance of said mouse.

>is unaffected by the software
That actually doesn't matter. Even if it was, measurements would always find the truth through relative performance if you use the same software/setup to compare multiple mouses. If your setup adds +10ms lag and you have one mouse performing at +15 and another at +20 then the one performing at 15 would win whether you had a lag free setup or not. It would just do +5 instead of +15.

Once the signal leaves the mouse, it's a software problem.
A mouse's latency performance is the delay between input happening and signal leaving the mouse.
Nothing more, nothing less.
>>
>>65564320
DT990 -> DT1990 will be the bigger bump up of those two.
>>
>>65565651
There's more to a mouse than that. A sensor can have tracking issues at high speeds for instance. It's not as simple as latency, but yes that is what I said.
>>
>>65565750
Sure, retarded flaws are always possible and they'd disqualify a mouse. But if what we're talking about is latency, it's all about the delta between input and output.
Past that, it's the computer to blame.

Oh well that would explain how you got the very first one he made. Crazy that you know him like that.
He could probably sell as many of them as he is capable of making, especially if he could figure out a way to get a plastic housing for the whole thing. It's simply the only 4k 120hz available and the even higher refresh at lower res is pretty appealing as well. CSGo/quake at 480 fps.

The downsides of living in a rural place like I do is there is no one worth meeting and no one worth knowing. No internships, jobs cap out at 20 an hour. We get nice clear air, low noise floor, and low cost of living but I'm not so sure it's worth it.
Something similar happened to me when I used to live another state. I was always ordering this same very unique product online, like once a week and I realized the guy lived not even 20 minutes from me. He started delivering the product by hand and we would deal in cash to avoid paypal fees and shit. It was awesome.

I would be tempted to buy his monitor if the sort of game I enjoy didn't suck so much with their logic tied to refresh rate bull. Blurbuster said that 480hz makes motion as smooth looking as strobbed backlights, but with none of the downsides. Alas, playing touhou at 480fps would be literally impossible since the game would speed up by that much.

I own AT AD900X. What I like about them is big soundstage and crispy sound. It's great for natural instruments, but electronic music feels quite meh. I also used Samson SR850 for a while, which were ok for the price but not really comparable to the quality of ATs.

>>65567396
On the computer. I fiddled with the idea of having a dedicated "music listening" chair, but honestly I have all my music on my NAS, and I can listen with pretty much anything I own which is connected to the wi-fi, so I would just use my Fiio to listen to music which is less convenient than my PC.

On a side note, I'm really fucking digging the look of that Eames Lounge Chair and I honestly think this is going to be one of the first furniture I get when I move somewhere I have more room space.

Most headphones arguably fail hard at actual passive isolation. Emphasized bass helps since bass is one of the less isolated frequency by passive isolation. A commonly wanted feature for a dj headphone is the ability to wear it with only one cup on your ear and the other put aside. And they need high clamping force.
>>
>>65567994
Except Axel Grell the guy who made both of them uses the hd650 more than the hd600 by his own admission. The difference between the hd650 and the hd600 is smaller than it used to be, they changed the headphone.
I get the feeling that people don't want it to be good because it's more than $200 and then they would have to deal with the possibility that maybe it is possible to upgrade from an hd600.
Either way I am very excited to try them out, have high expectations.

Most hd600 shitposters are americans besides idol garbage and the reason they want the hd650 to be shit is the reverse of what you say. They don't want the $200 massdrop headphone to be better than what they wasted their money on.

the SHP9500 are memed by poorfags who pretend it's amazing but actually it has a bright and tinny sound. Buy one if you want to pretend your "TrustyFucks" are all you need.
in all seriousness they're one of the cheapest "good" headphones. I don't really like them that much, preferring my HD579, but its cheap and decent. The retarded memes are getting on my nerves though.

I tried pretty hard to like the 4.40s but they sound awful. Everything in the pricerange sounds awful. Everything on bluetooth sounds awful, for that matter.

The only things I've been able to choke down so far;

1. lmfao the Skullcandy Grind
2. have a pair of Definitive Technology Symphony 1's on the way. Sounded better than the 4.40s and various other things in a brief listening session. Not 100% convinced but we'll see.
3. Blue Satellite. Not willing to pay $400 for utterly mediocre audio, but wireless is the real bottleneck.

Wait Sennheisers are bad now? Someone fill me in, I'm not a big audio guy and I'm not sure if this is 4chan's ability to separate themselves from hype or it's just 4chan being contrarian.
>>
>>65571011
>Everything in the pricerange sounds awful

What's the least I gotta spend for better quality? If I'm being honest, my hearing is pretty shit so it's not like I have a fine tuned ear or anything

>Everything on bluetooth sounds awful, for that matter.

I'm willing to deal with that fact. I know most bluetooth headphones come with the cord if I want it, but I'm looking for the bluetooth option as it's useful when I'm listening to anything at work (office tasks when I can be left alone and listen to music or taking inventory in a warehouse, for example) since the cord really gets in the way.
>>
>>65571017

Sennheisers were always bad but they were less-bad-than-beats ranging into almost-acceptable by the 600s

Competition was almost non-existent, with things like the K-701s being considered worthwhile in the early years.

It's 2018 and Sennheiser is no longer relevant. 800s are an acceptable minimum. No more, no less.

Ah, fellow DT1990 owners.

Good to see.

Do you have a favorite genre for your headphones yet?
>>
>>65571045

Wireless audio quality isn't quite so much a matter of budget as it is a matter of preference.

Listen to as many headphones as possible prior to a final purchase, and be willing to return that purchase quickly.

Almost certainly.
>Why do vocals strange on the Hd 579?
There could be any number of reasons. Treble response, elevated lower midrange and upper bass response. The headphone may not conform to your expectations. I wouldn't know just from the statement.

>>
>>65571631
Take your sense of proper and shove it.

>>65571600
Start with a parametric EQ. If you're on Windows, use Equalizer APO.
People still seem to suggest PEACE as though it were still needed, but even if you need a GUI, the stock version is more than fine, and arguably better in some respects.
>is it something I can reasonably learn how to do myself
That's how everyone does it.
Some people find instrument and vocal reference charts handy. You can use sine sweeps and pink noise bands to help.
Pulling the bands up and down while something is playing is a useful approach. Adjust the Q/bandwidth, magnitude, and center frequency while doing so.

When you're done, a useful guideline is to subtract the master gain by the amount equal to your largest boost. This will help avoid digital overload.
The thing about guidelines is that they are guides and nothing more. The last thing I want to for a blind cult of idiots who worship the rule.
>>
>>65571720
>Take your sense of proper and shove it.
there's no need to get upset. I just said that it's harder than people make it out to be for someone who doesn't have a reference point for how something should sound. eq is great. people don't seem to be willing to be honest about the difficulty for newcomers.

or are you taking issue with my usage of the word proper, which would imply that you are taking a post modernist stance that there is no such thing.

I can't stand either one and hence the reason this forum exists. Read our mission statement on every page of this forum. You see that we believe in having fun above everything else.

if audio isn't fun for you, or you can't make it fun and it only adds negative value to your life then maybe you need to rethink your approach or just put it to rest

Amir was also notorious for being bullheaded on hydrogenaudio, picking fights with many of the AES regulars.
I *have* spent less time on audio as of late, and I don't visit the audio sites much anymore. It's more like EQ is a sore point for me, and I don't think I would have taken up an audio obsession in the first place so severely if I had known about PEQ early.

Mathematics? Fourier analysis was one of the things you pick up in audio. Decided to look more into the field for fun.
Occasional light reading of philosophy, tossing around short story ideas.

HA is a lonely place; it's more or less dead unless someone comes looking for an argument. The regulars know most of the stuff they need to know to pursue sound quality, and they probably already have it the gear.

I don't think it was all a waste. For example, I might classify knowing about some of the functions of the helicotrema as useless knowledge, but I found other bits of the nervous system interesting to know, even if I have no serious use for that information. I think I would have picked up a lot of interesting knowledge even if I hadn't paid the AES member fee, just not audio facts.

I could have done without the time on PMPs and DACs. Headphones that were FOTM at Head-fi or some cult reviewer's new toy wasted time and money, trying to make sense of contradictory and sometimes absurd statements. The only way seemed to be the revolving door of a generous return policy and demos.

It would have been around 2011 when I had first picked up on parametric EQ. It was obvious that EQ was the most significant factor concerning sound quality, and PEQ gives you the ability to define it well enough. At this point, I was wondering about the other audiophile wisdom, lingering doubts. This was spent sorting out stuff that required engineering knowledge that got mangled by audiophile whims i.e. CSDs, phase, stopband filters, sampling, driver principle, etc. That was a few years.

Eventually got the idea to pay AES dues for a couple of years after that, since no one else seemed to compile audio information. That beat down my desire to own new audio things. I was slower to recover from the cycle of the return policy, but this time to get a scope of the market for reviews no one cared about. It took some time to realize I had enjoyed the signal theory and analysis more than I enjoyed audio or even listening to music. Later dropped the audio application.

Well whether you like it or not you've accumulated a good amount of experience and knowledge of a subject. Have you thought about putting it to good use by innovating using that knowledge? It's only after you understand the rules of a game that you can then understand how to break them, so to speak.
>Does Maki-anon talk like this, sans details?

It's something that's not often told so I liked it. We're a lot alike, I get so passionate about subjects that it never ends. I learned I love the journey of learning and progession, so that's why I asked specifically those questions.
>>
>>65573012
>by innovating using that knowledge?
I realize that sounds kind of vague without any examples. Straight off the top of my head.. you could learn machine learning and fix terrible recordings. Kind of like a high fidelity "upscaler" for music or something. Just spitballing half baked ideas but maybe you understand what I mean better?

That was not serious.
I'm interested in how I come off in personality and manner.
>Have you thought about putting it to good use by innovating using that knowledge?
There are some audio problems that don't have a solution in incremental advances in material science, circuit design, and optimization. As to which ones will produce a serious improvement in listening quality, there only seem a few subfields and applications that are even possible to be clearly improved.
For the most part, I've lost interest. Knowing I have something to tell is that last bit of interest left, and habit is what keeps me from breaking it off completely. As long as people listen, that's fine.

I got what I wanted in the first place, to make sense of audio, and something else that is fun.
