  1. Hey guys, i've been researching headphones for a quite good time. Now i have to take a decision and i need your help. I've bought today the X-fi hd creative usb sound card and i have to chose one headphone too. I really enjoy "punch bass" and feel surrounded in musics and games. But i really care about the "clarity" of the sound with good sound stage and good mids/highs. (I like rap/hip hop/dubstep/rock) I know its controverse, but i already know that i want a closed back headphone. But i would appreciate if I could take a "cristal clear" headphone but not that kind of boriness of flat sound. I want emotion during musics without losing the quality. So, after searching a lot, i'm between 2: -Shure SRH 840 with the bass "boosted" on my X-fi HD. -Ath m50x with the mids "boosted" on my x-fi with the intention to turn it more "cristalyzed". I've read a lot about the DT770 and 880 too, but a lot of people had trouble with the sibilance, and i dont want it to be a concern, these hp's that I pretend to buy must last a good while. (i expect that things like that don't happen to srh 840) So.. i would enjoy if you comment here what should I do, since i've almost bought the m50x but the "muddy" sound reported on these made me a little appreensive. Sorry for the bad english, i'm not american.. haha thank you very much for your attention. Yuri
  2. Here is a nice little headphone I bought as soon as I read about it. Shure is noted for high-quality headphones suitable for critical monitoring applications, although at $39 USD you wouldn't expect this SRH-144 to fit that description. But rather than opt for a bassy or muddy low end with reduced treble to appeal to non-audiophile consumers, Shure created this headphone with a rolled-off bass and treble, which may sound like an average car radio at first listen. I like what they did here, and the bass and treble respond well to a moderate boost as needed. One caveat - the efficiency is low enough that many of the lower-volume tracks on my iPhone6 won't play loud enough for satisfactory listening without an external amp.
