Oh, hi, it's been a long time. After listening to LCD-3, buying HD580 was pretty much an end game for me. But just wanted to stop by (cont) Aug 21, 2017

        and say hi to many of you that I learned from about headphones. It was an accidental hobbie and an amazing expirience since I stumbled on changstar. Love you all.

        Good. If you want that HD580 to come alive a little get a tube amplifier. A Schiit Vali 2 with a Siemens E288CC is enough.

      Hi Darsus, I have found your post concerning the equalization of Sennheiser HD250 II headphones. I own them and I would like to try your EQ. Could you please send me the exported settings for FabFilter ProQ2?
      My e-mail address is [email protected] Many thanks in advance.

      For some reason it's easier for me to mix/master other people's songs, probably because I just listen to them as a listener.

      How to say to a girl that headphones are your hobby, in nonawkward way? :v Let's leave that for the later phase.

        Women have their own hobbies. It's a great thing, because then they don't begrudge us ours (as long as we're respectful of theirs).

        Yeah, definitely reciprocate respect. My fiancé spends her expendable income on food, beauty products and clothing/shoes. The average guy thinks "why spend $x on a shirt/shoe/foundation?" but the average woman would say the same about your audio devices. What serves a simple function to you ("is it good enough? great") is a very nuanced niche to her (like headphones for us - has to do more than just work).

      K240 Monitor expiriences? Measurement wise, they seem like a DF with better bass, which is great if true. Can get them for 60 e.

      Sound of a headphone is sometimes like a smell of a perfume. Sudenly, you remember everything.

        SRH440 has an uncomfortable headband. It has no bass and hot highs, even with mods. Supposedly, every third pair is "bass heavy" (yeah, right).

        You're welcome. The best cheaper closed phone for me was XPT100 / HM5 with thick felt in front of the driver. But it doesn't compete with HD6x0 or good Fostex mods. Best luck!

      I believe many people can't mix on headphones, not priorly because of crossfade issues, but because majority of them are heavily coloured.

        After experimenting for a while with sine generator, I can say I got pretty good results flattening headphones. When it comes to crossfeed Redline is the best hands down. Plus, with IXL and SPAN, I can say I became pretty confident mixing on headphones, but would just love to have a stock flat pair that I wouldn't need to tweak.

        P.S. Tho there are some, from what I've heard HD600 and DT250-250ohm sound flattest. I have to check them yet.

        I use HD600 and Focal Spirit Pro. Between the two, I can be very confident about my decisions. FSP is great for hearing what's going on in the bass.

      If you equilize your heaphones using sine sweep, make sure it's really fast, otherwise it's very hard to follow it precisely.

      If Akira (film) was all about kids doing stupid shit, without classical Japanese mindfuckery, it would probably be my fav anime of all time.

        It is still my fav drawn anime alongside DBZ and Cyber City Oedo 808 probably.

        @fraggler Not in my opinion. I haven't read the manga, but from what I've found on the net, they based story on 1st and 6th part of it, which is crazy huge gap. I liked mindfuckery up to one point when it just became too much.

        @Hands There are so few good and neutral low/mid tier headphones, and after listening to LCD-3 recently I just made a conclusion how little headphones improve after some price. I mean, they sound wonderful, but not 2000$ wonderful, so I realized why many consider HD6x0 if not end game, sufficient. (Yet I have to hear them yet).

        Yep, slim pickings for decent, cheap headphones. I heard a couple LCD-3s and honestly thought they were a tier below a properly amped HD6X0. ;)

        @Hands I might sound crazy but I achieved 80/90% of that sound with heavy and patient EQ-ing with my K400.

      It's so much easier for people who buy headphones just for listening, not for working on them too.

        So tempted to buy some of them, but I know keeping money for HD580/600 is much smarter move.

        Good condition, stock, original kit and boxes 100 to 150 Euros/Dollars. Check with the owner...

        Yeah, i'd say decent at $100. New Senn pads are spendy though and w the HD600 occasionally getting to $250 new, they'd have to be in great condition.
