This thread serves as a Q&A section for all new/existing audiophiles seeking advice on their next headphone purchase!

The rules are simple, no flaming/bashing and try not to spam (posting irrelevant post).
You may ask us any headphone/earphone related question, and we will gladly assist you. Don't be shy!

When asking, please remember to STATE YOUR BUDGET. Better if you give exact numbers... "not so expensive la" is not considered a budget

Other info such as the following will also be helpful to get faster and more accurate responses:
- Your rig (mp3 players, amps, sound card etc)
- What type of usage (movies/ gaming/ music etc)
- File format used in your source (i.e. flac, mp3 etc)
- Genre of music you listen to (classical, jazz, metal, etc)
- Headphone/ earphone type (closed, open, circumaural, IEM etc)
- Other requirements (if any) (mic, volume control, 5.1ch, 7.1ch etc)

Some model to consider, RRP might be different:

Some audio terms used in this thread and their meaning:

Circumaural headphones:
Sometimes called full size headphones, these are made in a circular fashion that surround the ear completely.

Closed back:
Closed back (or sealed) headphones are designed to reduce the effect of external noise on your listening and also to keep the noise made by the headphone drivers from leaking out and disturbing people around you.

Ear Bud:
Ear bud headphones are small in size and are placed directly outside the ear canal.

In Ear Monitors (IEM):
In Ear Monitors (IEM) also known as Ear Canal Headphones (ECH's). These earphones are placed into the ear canal and effectively seal your ear with their small rubberised ear-tip sleeve (can also come with various tips). They are small, lightweight and very portable.

Noise cancelling headphones:
Noise cancelling headphones reduce the perceived noise from outside with the clever use of small microphones located inside the earpiece and active electronics within the headset. The basic principle is that the noise signal for the outside world is inverted and then summed with the signal from the audio source. The result is that the ambient noise from outside is effectively cancelled out, which lets you enjoy your music.

Open back headphones:
Open back headphones (sometimes referred to as vented) are designed to allow sound out through the back of the earcup. This design gives a character to the sound that is often described as having an open soundstage, or natural. One reason for this is that there are less reflections than a closed back (or sealed) design.

Supra aural:
Supra aural headphones have pads that sit on top of the ears, rather than around them.

NOISE CANCELLATION DOES NOT EQUAL TO NOISE ISOLATION, get the facts straight:
Noise cancellation works by cancelling out constant noise from outside surroundings, like machine sound or motor sound, or jet plane turbine sound, you will still hear people talking, baby crying, car passing by, people beside you blasting music while break dancing, a couple quarreling etc. Noise isolation is for silence from surrounding sound regardless what it is.

Noise cancellation is a premium priced technology, and the reason behind it is it uses to external mic for left and right to obtain the constant noise, and the headphone produces a counter noise wave to cancel out the noise, so you don't hear machine sounds. BOSE claimed to be the first to create NC headphones, so they might get patent fee from it, who knows.. Expect something around RM1k for a NC headphone.

Hard to say, but brand wise I will vote for Philips.

I tried most of the Pioneer brand headphones in SenQ, all not to my taste, too bassy and sounds very dry.

Need sifu for some recommendations:

- My rig - smart phones, laptop, PC.
- What type of usage - music, videos, more focus on musics (instruments, vocals, NOT hardrock, NO Techno, but don't mind decent bass).
- My file sources - Youtubes, Flacs, MP3. Better cater for lossless eg. monkey files too.
- Genre of music you listen to - instruments, vocals as above. But I still love bass when bass is due.
- Type: Headphone

Budget : around RM300.. unless there is good reason to increase the limit ? I am all ears.. smile.gif

Thanks for help.

Beyerdynamic DTX501p, direct and clean sounding with very decent bass. Though small but quite comfortable for wearing.
Creative Aurvana live, slightly warm and sweet, soft and musical.

Can try out HiFiMan RE400, and RHA MA750.
RHA is more warm sounding and typical England sound. More to mids, smooth and rich. The strength is not on separation, positioning and details. It's with very mature and comfortable sound tuning.

RE400 is clean and refined. Not so warm, also more to England sound. It's also focus more on mids. The charming part is when the music flows out like feather, soft and smooth.

I saw Sony is selling MDR-1Rmk2 for RM649. Just wondering are these worth it even at this "low" price? I'm comparing to the like of HD558 and AT M50, and I know I might be wrong to compare with monitoring cans.

Before this I'm eyeing on the Kingston HyperX Cloud, basically a Takstar 80 with a mic. However it's very much overpriced here in Malaysia. At ~RM400, I think I can get a much better cans.

- Your rig: Asus Xonar U7, AE Aego M
- What usage: FPS Gaming + Music
- File format: lossless, 320k mp3.
- Genre of music: pop song (taiwan, english)
- type: over hear close or open.
- Other requirements: bonus mic, I don't mind if it sound great and do without one.

EDIT on 13/9: A few people asked me where did I get the MDR-1R for RM649, good news is that Sony Malaysia is running promotion now, so you can just pick them up at Sony stores in the country. The price is also shown in their online store.

The price is OK for 1R mk2, I think they just want to clear it and give way to their new flagship. And it is more portable than M50 and HD558, and have better look imo.

If you prefer more details on upper mids and treble, more musical, can go for Creative Aurvana live. It's already stopped production but you still can buy the remaining stock for now.
If you need a more bassy headphone with better punch for EDM and rock, can consider JVC HA-S500.

Hi SIFUs, wanting to venture a little bit into the audiophile world but don't know where to start. Can anyone give me suggestions for a decent headphone with infos as below?

Rig - Planning to get a portable music player. Now listening on PC and iPhone. Recommend for a newbie as well with budget no more than RM1k
Usage - Music
File format - FLAC or DAC (Not sure if DAC is the higher format for FLAC)
Genre of music - Jazz, Pop, Vocal

Headphone - Please recommend
Budget - Around the price of a Beats Studio v2. RM1200-ish? Beats are overpriced IMO so...
Other requirements - Over ear with sound isolation. Bass with crisp vocal capability. Best if there is something that acts as a mute button like the Beats Studio v2 has.

Sony MDR-1R for half the price. I think someone mentioned a sale going on for about 650+. It's meant for portableuse, very comfortable and is a very fun pair of headphones

while the Pistons may sound really good for the price, the isolation is really poor. which means you will need to bring the volume much higher to overcome environmental noise = ear damage sweat.gif

Can check out JVC HA-S500 and Creative Aurvana live. JVC with more bass, CAL with more details on upper mid and treble.

If you prefer cleaner sound that emphasise on details. for below RM100, can consider Superlux HD381 series. Slightly over RM100, can consider Vsonic VSD1.

If you don't mind semi open, can consider Superlux HD681 Evo. Slightly warmer and with more bass than other Superlux family. If bass is not an issue, can consider HD661 and HD669 for close back.

If you prefer softer, musical and comfortable sounding, Edifier H850 is a quite decent choice.

It's really depends on your preference and personal taste on sound. For the price range, can consider ATH M50X, ES700, Sennheiser HD598, AKG K550.
ATH M50X has a stronger and tighten bass compare to the rest. It is easy to drive. The sound stage is larger than M40x and more open, mids is fuller and more solid.
ES700 and K550 are headphones with lesser bass.
HD598 is rich and thick sound, the bass quantity is still a lot but more loose and flexible.

Can consider M50x, custom one pro, HD598.
ATH M50X has a stronger and tighten bass and easier to drive. COP though has low impedance and higher potential than M50X, but without proper amp it won't sound good.
HD598 is rich and thick sound, the bass quantity is still a lot but more loose and flexible.

Depends on what kind of music you listen to.
Normally ATH M40X would be good with most genres.
Or you can even go with Shure SRH440 (many more good heapdhones for this budget)
If you're into rock music. And you're okay with an open headphone. alessandro ms1i and grado sr80i are good choices.
It all depends on what type of music you listen to icon_rolleyes.gif

never tried out m50 but should be similar to m40x which are really comfortable. probably not the sony mdr1mk2 because the shape also plays a huge part in comfort.
but m40x is one of the best you can get for under 400rm thumbup.gif

Didn't quite like the CX 300-II - Sounded fairly bloated and muddy.
Unfortunately did not audition the ATH-IM50 yet; I like the Final Audio Design Heaven 2 though, directly driven out from my iPod Shuffle it presents mids in a very sweet maner.

Also, you might want to consider the form factor preference - I like the conventional wire "straight down" design of the Heaven 2. "Over the ears" IEMs take me too long to wear with lots of fumbling.
However having the wire looping over the ears might help in reducing microphonics.


Perhaps you might want to spend some time and audition the ATH-IM50 over at E1 - AKG.
The Heaven 2 you should be able to audition at any Jaben branches.

Just came across this sales thread then thought of your post: https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/3340177
If possible you might want to save up, since you know you already like the MD1R MK2. smile.gif

hi guys, im stuck between the shure sh440 and ath m40x.. which do u guys think is better suited for me?

im an all rounder listener, i listen stuff from electrohouse to pop
but i listen to very little jazz and classical though. my priority is comfort and also isolation.

Both are really good headphones. But for comfort and isolation, M40x is much better than srh440.
But you might not like the sound of M40x, cause you don't get much of the bass you'd want for electro/house or pop.
But if you're someone who doesn't like much bass. It should be fine. smile.gif

I don't remember how hd201 sounds, and never tried h850 before. But I do own a ZX300 (sounds the same as ZX310).
I can't make a choice out of those 3 but I would highly recommend you check out audio technica ath-s100 / s100is
You can get these for under 100rm online. And for this price this is amazing. thumbup.gif
Compared to my zx300, the ath-s100is, it sounds so much better and gives much better isolation. comfort wise it's quite the same.

Can consider Superlux HD681 Evo. It's slightly warm and with more bass compare to other Superlux Series. Very comfortable for wearing as well and comes with velour pad.

Actually for lower range headphones, I do suggest to go for other brand instead of big brands for higher C/P ratio.
Not many audiophile in Malaysia actually know about Edifier H850. I bought it from China as it was rated highly from a famous China audiophile review website Soomal .
Once tested, I was really surprise by the performance. Never expect such a smooth and musical sounding headphone at this price range. For pop, classical, jazz and so on it's really good.
My sister is using it for her vocal teaching class now. biggrin.gif

If you prefer something with more bass and warmer sounding, can consider Superlux HD681 Evo. Superlux is always the brand that I recommend to composers and musicians for entry level sound monitoring headphones. It excels especially on details. Hardly find other headphones at this price range that can outperform it in terms of separation, positioning and details. But it may sound a little bright and sharp on treble depending on your set up. 681 evo is the headphone with the darkest treble among Superlux. Details slightly muddy compare to the same range Superlux brothers.

Actually I believe it depends on your set up. I have tested M40X and M50X on Aune T1 MK2, both gives me equally punchy and tight bass. Their difference are more on sound stage, and details especially on mids. Vocal on M40X is a little backward and not as solid as M50X. But the difference in price is quite a lot so I think M40x is really a good pair to invest especially when you do not have decent dac and amp. The performance will be even closer.
To me, the bass is definitely sufficient and perform quite well for EDM and rock. The X version has much more bass boost compare to the previous M40 and M50, which make me love them more.
Shure headphones usually has very beautiful treble, focus more on mids and treble. M40x has more bass than SRH440.

I see. I never got to try any headphones with a proper DAC or amp.
But driving a M40x with laptop, the bass might be a turn off for most.

Hi peeps, i need helps and suggestions to pick my next headphone but first let me tell ya that im not much of a hi-fi enthusiast or what people call audiophile...what i want is a good pair of cans that performs and comfort enough and as long as they are worthy of the bucks spent im game

so i've been aiming for the ones around RM500 ballpark and i heard the m50x is notorious but a bit over my budget, and then there's the m40x. based on what i've read on the internet reviews so far the m40x is really good and the fact that the price is nearly almost half of m50x just put the icing on top of the cake. my music taste varies and i listen to a lot of genres but i do focus a lot on EDM, rap, and rock subgenres. however i am leaning towards getting the m40x because based on reviews most agrees that it is a terrific neutral headphone which should cater to my eclectic taste.

so im torn between the two, is the m50x really is that great so much that it's worth to spend the few extra cash on it? but of course other brands headphones recommendation is much appreciated, but im really pinned down to getting the AT headphones though tongue.gif

Well, you just can't wish for m50x if you refuse to go beyond rm500. The cheapest m50x is rm612 plus postage. Too expensive maybe but you don't buy headphones everyday right and too it'll last quite a long time if handled with care.

Personally, I'm quite satisfied with what I'm getting through m40x+e18 combo. Yea I mean combo, not just the headphone so I say you shouldn't be thinking twice about chopping the other leg of yours to get a decent DAC/amp.

Hello, im currently using Seinnheiser HD555 & been using it for 4-5 years already. Now planning to upgrade my headphone. So what is a significant upgrade from a HD555?

Something to note:
- What type of usage: music, games
- File format used in your source: FLAC & mp3
- Genre of music you listen to: more to R&B & ballad
- Headphone/ earphone type: closed, circumaural etc

You could try Sennheiser HD650, but its open-back and full size headphone just like your HD555. Else try the M50.
And please state your budget.

Depends.

I am a Sennheiser fan boy but Momentum are less portable to me since it cannot fold.

Sony are the best portable, and price/performance ratio based on recent price (less than RM 1k)

I have the Denon, a bit bassy for your genre, less portable also.

T5p not heard before, no comment, but is top of the line of Beyer, could never go wrong.

LCD... you need amp to drive it... forget about it by now...

My choose will be

1. Momentum
2. Denon
3. Sony
4. Beyer

+1 on Ask_Yip's comment. The Momentum is not portable especially when you're bringing it out with the case. V-Moda M100 has probably the best portability build, but it's more genre specific and not as versatile sounding as Momentum.
If portability is not an issue for you, then Momentum is nice... other choices for you that i haven't heard are Shure SRH1540, Focal Spirit, NAD VISO HP50, etc.

Hello, im currently using Seinnheiser HD555 & been using it for 4-5 years already. Now planning to upgrade my headphone. So what is a significant upgrade from a HD555?

Something to note:

Slightly above your budget at RM115 - Check out the Blox BE3 earphones. 30USD + 7USD shipping, sounds mighty good for the price, easily sounds better and much more durable than the Yuin PK3/PK2:

You can drop by Jaben to audition the HD650/HD600 and see which one works better for you.
Another alternative at the RM1xxx price range is the HE-400i - But I am not sure how that sounds. It's a known fact that the Senns are excellent for Jazz genre type music.

Depends.

I am a Sennheiser fan boy but Momentum are less portable to me since it cannot fold.

Sony are the best portable, and price/performance ratio based on recent price (less than RM 1k)

I have the Denon, a bit bassy for your genre, less portable also.

T5p not heard before, no comment, but is top of the line of Beyer, could never go wrong.

LCD... you need amp to drive it... forget about it by now...

My choose will be

1. Momentum
2. Denon
3. Sony
4. Beyer
*
Te Sennheiser, how much in Malaysia? THe sound quality is much2 more better than HD555? If not much difference i'd stick with my HD555 :|

Thanks for your recommendation. The Momentum looks the most interesting imo.

Im mainly using it at my home, not that worry about portability.

Thumbs up for HE-500, for the price given it is clearly a league on its own, barring the HE-6 of course. Put's the Beyer's T1 to shame to be honest.

Means suited for certain type of music. The Momentum is more balanced than M100 which has a v-shaped sound signature (bass boost, recessed mids, sparkly trebles).

But if you like bass heavy music while you don't have a proper setup its better to avoid.

I love V-Moda for it's portability, and it sounds really good as well. But if you listen to all types of music the Momentum would be a better choice.
Both have diff sound signature so maybe you could go to Jaben to try them out.

If you have a bit more money to spare you can go for the ath M50. Or even ath pro500mk2.
Im currently using ath pro5mk2 which is great for bassy genre.

Sennheiser HD6XX series are very different sound signature with AKG series.
HD600 & HD650 are both rich and thick sound headphones with very punchy bass and large in piece. The bass quantity is more than AKG and beyerdynamic. They are one of the best headphones with good details at lower mids and bass at this price range.

HD600 and HD650 are at the same range for sound quality but different sound signature.
HD650 has more bass and darker treble, little empty in mids compare to HD600. It's suitable for rock and other genre that need bass savvy headphones.
HD600 has a fuller and meaty mids, better expansion in treble, which makes it a all rounded headphone to me. It has very good performance for vocal and orchestra.
Sennheiser headphones have good dynamic, which make them excel in big production music.

AKG wise is totally a different story. I always believe that the sound design of the headphones are related to the country of origin and their culture. AKG was from Austria where people are playing with instruments like Accordion which is more lively and light. Typical AKG headphones like K701, K702, are very refined, airy, sound stage is more backward, clean with thinner music body. Suitable for chamber music, piano, acoustic, new age, country music and so on. But I would say, if you were to choose AKG, has to be careful in choosing amp. In the market, more amps are using Sennheiser headphones as reference when they design it. If pairing with amp or dac that is not so suitable, it may sound bright and dry.

Hifiman wise, they are also good headphones that bring revolution.
HE500 and HE560 are really good and cheap, but you really need to invest in good amp. tongue.gif
For your set up, I would say, can consider HE400i. It's consider clean in a dark background, refined, smooth and airy, thinner music body compare to sennheiser but much thicker than akg. The mid is fuller and overall with more bass compare to HE560, which makes it sound good with vocal. It's not a headphone that emphasise on bass, but it still has bass.
Overall performance, I rate it higher than Sennheiser HD6XX and AKG K7XX. Take Sennheiser bass as example, Senn is having the quantity but HE400i is having the quality, so refined and smooth with higher density.

I'm not sure how's the performance of your amp, as I haven't audition it before. But for all the headphones mentioned above, they need at least a decent amp to drive it, preferably desktop amp smile.gif

I'd like some recommendations for a set of headphones + portable DAP. Budget 1k-1.5k for the set. I'm trying to avoid having to get a portable amp as well, if that is possible, so I don't have to deal with an extra box+wires.

The headphones could be a supra/circumaural (not too picky). Closed/open doesn't matter. I don't want it too get too warm so maybe supra-aural would be better but full cans with velour pads would be ok (?). When I checked last (which was a while ago) the Allesandro MS-1 seemed like a good buy, any remarks/recommendations?

Went to jaben the day before. Tested several headphones. Narrowing my option to Momentum, VISO HP50 & BeyerDynamic T51P.

VISO HP50 the most comfortable to wear and sound quality on par with Momentum IMO.

T51P sounds surprisingly good!! biggrin.gif

Anyone own T51P or VISO HP50? Care to share your experience?

I personally preferred the DT1350 to T51P due to some colouration (imo) on the T51P.
Momentum has the sound of an all rounder, balanced and laid back, if you're looking for fun sound (T51P), I would say the Momentum will get you bored fast tongue.gif

Have not heard the VISO HP50.

Side note, MS-1 is excellent with metal, let it be any Grado/Alessandro.

For budget, 1k-1.5k combo, can consider Fiio X5 or iBasso DX90 for your DAP.

Like I stated in my previous, I don't listen to metal. And as stated previously the budget is for a set and not just the the DAP.
Does it make sense to get a Fiio X5 or X3 on headphones like the MS1 or the M50? That DAP is more expensive than the headphones.

I'd like to modify my question to make it easier- whats a decent balanced headphone which is a step up from the MS1 below RM700.

Actually source is more expensive than headphone is very normal smile.gif
To me, I see headfi as a system. Every member in the system plays an important role. Doesn't mean that you spend more on headphone, you will get a better sound.

Take Sennheiser HD600 as example. It's only RM1K+ headphone. I am currently pairing it with Yulong DA8 DAC (around RM4K+) with La Figaro 339 headphone amp (close to RM3K with upgraded tubes). It's the best pairing combo for HD600 that I have ever heard. Of course, it always have room for improvement. If I have to choose between HD800 + a RM3K+ dac & amp, I will choose the former set up which is more healthy and comfortable.

If you plan to upgrade very soon, you can allocate more budget on headphone then slowly upgrade your dac and amp.

There are a lot of ways in playing headfi. Just like a lot of headfi-ers who get flagship headphones first and slowly upgrade their dac & amp.
If you just want to get a comfortable sounding system, can allocate budget to get an affordable, balance system.

Headphone that you can consider,
Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro (has much greater improvement on sq if add in amp compare to M50X)
ATH M50X (all rounded, but lower range on sq than the rest if compare on a higher range headfi system )
Sennheiser HD598 (rich sound with thicker music body)
AKG K550 (more on treble, lesser bass)

DAP:
At least
Fiio X3
iBasso DX50

Its true that the headphone alone does not determine good sound quality but you are recommending at least a Fiio X3/iBasso DX50 just to pair with an Alessandro MS1? The headphone makes the most difference in the level of SQ, the DAP the least so I don't quite follow your line of thought here.

Thanks for the headphone recommendations.

At this point i think a better headphones and a satisfactory DAP would be best. Only if you go to a much higher end line headphones you can consider getting a much better DAP.

For under 50, you could look for monoprice 8320 on garage sales. I don't know any shop that sells it in Malaysia though
Xiaomi Pistons also fall under 50rm if you get it from mi.com/my (xiaomi Malaysia site) but if you plan only on getting that, you'll have to pay for shipping, also note that its usually out of stock.... You can check out garage sales again and if you are lucky, you might find a seller for 50rm. Otherwise it can depend on seller from 55 to maybe even 70rm. So this under 75rm
I'm not sure about anything under 100rm but if you can topup a bit more go for the Soundmagic e10 biggrin.gif

A DAP or DAC changes the sound quality very much.
For example, I would say the experience of using my headphone on my phone/laptop compared to (I am going overkill here) AK240 would be like comparing a smartphone speaker and a laptop speaker.

Relative to the speakers or headphones they do not. Why would you spend alot more on something that is 5-10x less important in terms of sq?
http://en.goldenears.net/index.php?mid=KB_...cument_srl=1921

Your example is comparing complete garbage to an AK240 which doesn't make sense. A better comparison would be something like a Sansa clip/ipod vs Hifiman/Fiio/etc. And placing that in the context of using the difference on a better headphone. A sansa clip or an ipod is already very good as I have found out.
http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=61524
Look at the graphs, the frequency response of the Sansa/ipod is almost as flat as a ruler. SNR, distortion measurements are really good.

The recommendation right after my first post was a fiio x5 which costs around RM1200 which would leave only RM300 from my budget to spend on a headphone. Would that be a 'normal' thing that people do on lowyat?

Can consider Superlux HD651. a very decent choice below RM100. Or around RM100, Edifier HD850.
Top up a bit you can get Superlux HD681 Evo.

I do agree that headphone has the greatest impact on sound signature but not necessarily on sound quality.
First of all, why I recommend at least X3 or DX50 is because, you stated your budget can up to around RM1.5K. You also asking for step up from MS1.
For the headphones that I recommend, for a more balance system and healthy sound, I do think the two dap works well and can be even better.
For example, for me, if I were to use HD598 as my headphone, I would pair it with X3 or DX50 + a portable amp Cayin C5 for a better performance. Dap build in amp is usually not so powerful. Another common combo I am having is iBasso DX90 (RM1600+)+ Vsonic GR07 classic (RM300+).

Even if you are getting MS1, buying a higher price DAP still make sense.
If you have only budget of RM1K, you can have two options. Either buy a more expensive headphone and pairing with more entry level DAP or go for a more balance and healthy system.
If you are not going to upgrade in short time, I would think that the latter can give you a more comfortable and enjoyable sound quality.
Buying a RM700 headphone pairing with RM300 DAP, not necessarily having a better sound quality compare to MS1 + Fiio X3. You can audition yourself and do the judgement.

You can choose to pair a flagship headphone or higher range headphone with low range dac and amp, but the sound is for sure not healthy.
Talking about HIFI market, headphone like Audeze LCD3 that cost RM7K+ is already at top range. But a RM7K DAC in HIFI is really mean nothing. From here, I guess you can somehow see some clues.

Hi guys,

I need your recommendations. My dad wants to buy a set of IEM to replace the stock samsung s3 headphones which have broken.

- He has a budget between RM100 to RM150.
- Mostly listens to oldies such as Air Supply, Phil Collins. Basically songs you would hear on light.fm.
- Normally uses the phone (S3) or laptop to listen to songs.
- Songs are mp3 but with high bitrate of between 256 ~ 320.
- No brand preference.
- A pouch included with the set would be a plus.

I was initially thinking of buying the Beyerdynamic XP series, however decided other wise after reading on lowyat that they tend to fail after a year of usage.

Thanks.

Other day, I tested the JVC Ésnsy HA-SR85S. I think its one of the most neutral, decently rich sounding, comfortable for long listening sessions. It doesn't have the strongest bass nor the best in detail or resolution, but for sub RM500 range, its worth to be among my shortlist if I were to shop for one soon. No in ear stuff for me. Bigger phones means fuller sound to me, just like my speakers, no less than 15" woofer.

On your laptop/phone, m50x has a lot more bass than m40x.
I compared the amount of bass (the punchiness) with beats mixr, studio and solo hd (also the wireless one), and I would say m50x has more bass (and detail). The mids and and highs are also much better.

Thanks bro. Anyone else can justify this? Been listening on the M40x for an hour plus. I found out that it does have really nice quality but i wish the bass was stronger. I might trade mine for a used m50 biggrin.gif

The bass level of M50X is more linear/solid, in a controlled way. If you're talking about old beats, they have a lot of mid bass humping and bleeding into mid, and too caved treble; sounds like listening thru a wooden wall.
M40X has lesser bass than M50X. smile.gif

I don't think it's about the burn in. Cause the M40x tried out would have been well burned in yet people still find it having too little bass.
What I would recommend is getting an amp that would help bring out more bass from the M40x instead of trading it, mostly because M50 does not have detachable cables. Over time (IMO) it's a really useful feature.

Since I've never tried it out with an amp (I only used my laptop/phone) I'll quote liquidgal here. Hence I believe an amp would be a better solution biggrin.gif

QUOTE(liquidgal @ Sep 18 2014, 12:59 PM)
Actually I believe it depends on your set up. I have tested M40X and M50X on Aune T1 MK2, both gives me equally punchy and tight bass. Their difference are more on sound stage, and details especially on mids. Vocal on M40X is a little backward and not as solid as M50X. But the difference in price is quite a lot so I think M40x is really a good pair to invest especially when you do not have decent dac and amp. The performance will be even closer.
To me, the bass is definitely sufficient and perform quite well for EDM and rock. The X version has much more bass boost compare to the previous M40 and M50, which make me love them more.
Shure headphones usually has very beautiful treble, focus more on mids and treble. M40x has more bass than SRH440.

Thanks bro. I also thought of getting an amp to see if it really helps out the bass. Find out that I'm playing on Max volume both on my PC and iphone. I downloaded a secondary eq tweak(jailbroken iPhone) so that the bass will be much better. But I wasn't feeling the bass that i was looking for.

Anyone else can help out? Does getting an amp will improve the bass on the M40x?

My rig - HTC One M7, PC.
- What type of usage - music, movie, more focus on musics (also electronic dance music(bass)).
- My file sources - Youtubes, MP3.
- Genre of music you listen to - instruments, vocals. But I still love bass when bass is due.
- Type: Headphone (closed back)
- Other requirements - doesn't need a mic and hopefully the design look nice ( not a must ) , the pioneer and AKG design is my type of taste.

Budget : around Rm300 - Rm400

Seriously need a recommendation for buying a nice sound quality headphones.. Thanks a lot smile.gif

Thanks man. Btw does "burn in" really makes a difference? I mean i read a lot of reviews that m40/m50 need some burning in to get the most out of them.

I tried a pre-burn in M50X with a post burn-in M50X, kinda significant difference, especially the bass is more controlled, treble less harsher/tinny for the post burn-in M50X.
DAC/AMP with bass boost functionality, like Fiio E17, Digizoid ZO3, C5D etc etc.

Koss PRODJ100 - my favorite when it comes to vocal. laugh.gif
Audio Technica ATH-M30X - Balanced sounding, very nice all-rounder for budget-fi.

Sorry, just scrolled back realising that you were asking for bluetooth sweat.gif You are in the audiophile section of the forum and bluetooth audio is a no no due to the compression sweat.gif
