What kind of headphones do you /mu/tants use?
Pic related, just picked up these bad boys last weekend, really like the volume, but the sound quality is kinda poor
For home, Sennheiser HD 558.
On the go, pic related.
I wanted the best entry-level open and closed headphones.

Don't use them in public because they leak sound like a bitch, but if you want balanced, accurate sound in an exceedingly comfy format, these are the headphones for you. After not listening to them for a while, when I pop them on again their quality surprises me all over again. They're real good, but if you want nigger basss they're not for you because their sound is really balanced.
>tfw actually a gril but dont attentionwhore about it on /mu
I may just be a fucking shut in but what are you doing out of your room that you want high quality closed ear headphones for? I have a pair of HD 558s and a shorter cable for when im not at my desk but i pretty much never bother.
Not to be a faggot, but I like them equally in their own way. The m50s may have an edge over the hd558s in shear value: the m50Xs come with three interchangable cables for any situation. Listening to HD558s is like drinking some really refreshing ice water. The M50Xs are like ice cold Pepsi. Both are refreshing the first time you try them, with the Pepsi definitely being the funner of the two, but, over time, the water becomes boring while the Pepsi becomes sickening. That's why it's nice to interchange between both.
You understand what I mean?
The only people who would even care are /mu/ autists, so if you don't care about autists thinking you look autistic while literally everyone else doesn't give a shit then you're good to go unless you're wearing this monstrosity or something.
What is it like being a grill in a place that is mainly males that are oozing with testosterone because of the lack of female relations? Do you relate to the feel of no bf/gf or are you just here to attention whore?
Bought these to replace a pair of MDR-V6s that got stolen on a flight. They've been serving me really well so far but my hair keeps getting caught in the band.
AKG K271 Mkii. They've always been faithful.
Do you feel you are above us? How does a girl discover 4chan? I feel like it's much easier for girls to get bfs then it is for us to get a gf. Would you consider yourself one of high standards or something? Are you a qt?
>Do you feel you are above us?
No? We're on the same boat.
>How does a girl discover 4chan?
Just like anybody else? I can't even remember where I discovered it to be honest but probably read about it on the internet.
>I feel like it's much easier for girls to get bfs then it is for us to get a gf. Would you consider yourself one of high standards or something? Are you a qt?
Yeah, I guess that for some girls it's easier but when you're socially inept it's the same shit. I'm not high standards at all but I'm not a 30-year-old-basement-dweller either. Idk, I'm pretty much regular looking.
Not at the moment.
I just asked if you thought you were above us because you grouped us all as autists and didn't seem to include yourself in that. Also, speaking of autism, can you please stop phrasing statements as questions?
>Just like anybody else?
Kind of joking about that , but I knew a girl that did that shit all the time and it was annoying as fuck.
I feel like social ineptitude doesn't prevent a girl from getting a bf as easily as it does guys, but I guess I'm not a girl so I don't know. Does the /pol/ behavior and the whole "women are a meme" thing ever make you kind of make you angry? Anyway thanks for answering these random questions and whatnot and not being an attention whore about it.
I need new headphones and know literally jackshit about them.
What's the best pair I can get for $200 or less? Something that I can wear both at home and at my office (so it can't leak too much). I see M50's referenced a lot, is that my best option?
I'm no expert on headphones or anything but don't believe the m50 haters, they really are great headphones for the price. I would check out the head-fi guide on buying headphones though, it'll give you a good idea of what you should get. You can probably just google it and it will come up
So on Amazon there's 3 different ATH-M50x's... One comes with 3 cords, one comes with a "FiiO E6 Headphone Amplifier" and one with a hardbody case.
I'm leaning towards the package with the cords, but I'm curious, does a headphone amplifier make much of a difference?
I was joking about the autists thing. And I reckon that phrasing every reply as a question is a annoying habit, I think it's because I'm not very used to writing stuff about myself, much less on here.
I see your point. Usually boys are expected to be the ones asking girls out, so it's more difficult to take the first step. But I think it's hard for both if you're terribly shy. I don't like /pol/ behavior because this kind of thing doesn't bring anything good for this board, but I don't really care anymore about what I read here. Some of them are going to grow up. No problem!
You don't need a headphone amp for m50's. They just increase the loudness in case the resistance of the headphones is too much to get it to loud enough levels, but that is only a problem when you get to the $300+ range.
This thread reminded me about that mod, I didnt do it when i first bought them because I was scared of breaking them, but time fixes that.
I just took the foam out and I can notice things sounding a little bit clearer.
>joking about the autists thing
I guess I was just taking you way to literally, because it completely flew over my head.
I hadn't really considered that we are the ones that usually are supposed to make the first step, I guess that could make it a bit more difficult for you sometimes. Like you said though, it's hard for all of us super introverted people though. Self-expression doesn't just come naturally, and that kind of sucks.
Well, girls make self-depreciative jokes too.
Yeah, sometimes. I guess that the first step thing is no problem for an outgoing girl since she can easly take the first step herself.
>Self-expression doesn't just come naturally, and that kind of sucks.
Exactly. Most of the times I have no idea of what to do or what to say and being a girl makes no difference at all.
Same, holy shit they are so comfy. The bass is a lil much but they work great with equalizer. Anyone know any of similar comfiness? After these I'm spoiled haha
Got etymotic mc5s, very good sound and very good isolation.
Dude, chill. Anyway, to keep my presence in this thread on topic: OP's headphones are overpriced and sound like $15 earphones.
Good luck with your life too, I hope you find a qt gf (if you don't already have one).
These at home. The earbuds that came with my phone on the go.
