Sabaj DA2 is efficient enough for mid-fi headphones. Topping D10 with an O2 also doesn't come far in price from a Fulla while being much better.
Solves your aesthetic issue, gives you a great experience and you get both an amp and a DAC for the price of only your Schiit™ Modi.

I am looking for 2 recommendations, one set over the ear cans for my home work/gaming station. Preferably open or semi open so I can hear my spouse. I am not an audio professional but my work dose touch audio a bit before it goes out the door so I think a neutral or natural sounds signature is preferable? Also this pair would just be driven off my computers mother board, no amp or dac available. But overall the most important thing is comfort over extended sessions. All of my previous cans have been on ear and pinched my ears to an extent or had head bands that dug in. If it makes a difference I ware glasses so not pinching those would be good too. I don't want to spend more then 100 usd on this pair if I can avoid it as I will have to by a modmic or similar to go with it because I am done dealing with shitting voice chat mics. In summery cheep, comfortable, natural sound.

I am also looking for another over the ear set for my commute on the train. Preferably closed or noise cancelling, something that will protect my hearing if possible, but I don't know if those are a meme. Not wireless as know that suddenly becomes a feature once you get into noise cancelling stuff. It's only a hour commute so comfort is not key but it doesn't hurt. I am only looking to spend about 200 usd on this pair but that might not be reasonable, so this pair is not a big of a priority as the first.

Other things of note I live in the US. My previous cans have been a grado sr60 and a koss porta pro. I liked the way both sounded but I am most used to the porta pros and I don't think I would use the sr60s for anything other then music if I could help it.

Julian Gutierrez

HD600 is more neutral in its stock form, but does not have matched drivers. The HD650 is less neutral in its stock form, but it also has drivers matched to within 1 dB. An HD650 EQ'd to neutrality is objectively superior to the HD600 because of its driver matching. It just takes some work. It responds very well to EQ, and can be EQ'd to sound exactly the same as an HD600, to the point that you can't even tell them apart. Seriously, the only differences between the drivers in the HD600 and HD650 are damping. Other than driver matching, they are very close to each other in sound and function. I honestly don't see why anyone familiar with software like Equalizer APO would choose to buy an HD600 over the HD650. I think only a dummy that stubbornly refuses to learn how to EQ would buy an HD600 so he doesn't have to worry about it.

Silly user, you're simply misreading Sennheisers intentions! They're simply giving poorfags a taste of TOTL, driver matched headphones for HD 600 prices, but 650 performance (Driver matched by god himself). As expected of Sennheiser, of course. They're as generous anybody can get!

Grayson Sanchez

Also a common tactic used by drug dealers, so watch out! Once you get a taste of the good stuff (6XX), you'd eventually want the real thing (650 (Driver matched, btw)). Give it to 'em cheap, and when they eventually come back for more, pull the rug on 'em and make them beg with their money. Not only are they generous, but brutal too, as expected

And when they want more, they'd eventually go for your higher-end offerings. Realizing they aren't as nice as the 650s (Again, driver matched), they'd more headphones. In the end, they'd realize the HD 650s are GOAT (Driver matched by the heavens above, and tested using the harshest condition below), but only after they've given Sennheiser a large chunk of their money.

It's all about margins and money! Why take the time to driver match when you aren't even going to market it in the first place :^)

Either spend the time and money to match each and every pair of drivers for headphones that aren't even marketed to do so
Or... You couldn't and save both money AND time
What don't you understand?

There's never, ever been any mention or indication of driver matching with the HD600 because it doesn't have matched drivers. They cost less to manufacture than the HD650, and profit margins are higher that way. Simple as that.

because it doesn't have matched drivers.
The one with shitty driver matching is HD650, as shown here: It's also superior in every other way.

Budget- $200AU (150USD approx)
Location-Australia
Source - PC
Type of headphone - Fullsized / over ear.
Open or closed - Closed preferably, but not a deal breaker

Comfort level - High AF, im wearing these 6-16 hours a day.
Sound signature - I don't know enough about sound, they will be used for gaming primarily.
Past headphones - I fell for the gaming headset scam (pls take pity on me). I want though 2 logitech G930s in 3 years. The quality and comfort were 9/10. But there made out of shit platistic held together by weak ass hinges

Additionally:it needs to have a 5m cord or be wrieless. Also volume control on the headset (and mic mute if its a headset).

Apologises in advance if i've posted in the wrong place or fucked up the formatting. Fist post on Sup Forums, be gentle senpai.

And after trying for so long, you finally move back to shitposting. Kek. Us god-tier HD 650 owners don't need to keep refering back to our graphs as "proof". We simply have to leave our graphs in the open, where each and evey user will see the true power of TOTL, driver matched headphones by Sennheiser! Not measuring up to par? Simply return them, as they're clearly defective. Whereas, if you order non-driver matched headphones which come to you horribly driver matched, it is all left up to you, as you got exactly what you paid for (Gross!)

The HD 600 may sound arguably slightly better than the HD 650, but with the advent of the HD 6XX offering a deal much cheaper than the 600s - there is simply no debate anymore. 600s are $400 in my country while the 6XXs cost $280. (650s are $500 lol).

LSR305s are literally the most neutral monitors on the market, they have much better resolve than headphones and are far from bright since they're perfectly neutral.
They have better bass than any mid-fi headphones too.

They have better bass than the HD600. And since they're $100 cheaper you can also add a sub.
But I know you're buttblasted at the idea of speakers. Is it because your mom doesn't allow you to own a pair ?

It's neutral to 50hz, already something that not a single mid-fi heaphone can do. And they do it for $100 cheaper, which means you can add a sub going down to 15hz.
There's no debate here that LSR305s > mid-fi headphones and LSR305s + sub > TOTL headphones.
Spare the headphones money to buy yourself a house.

That 10dB dip between 50 and 80Hz.
Thus why you add a sub, to have a straight line down to 20hz. Refer to the price.
Those 5db jumps all over the place.
Due to the process of measuring speakers and early resonance. Not actually perceivable in real use and be perfected by simple room treatment.
The absolute nobass cliff under 50Hz
Never argued otherwise.
Most mid-fi headphones do better than this, even the chink ones.
Pic related is the frequency response of a $300 mid-fi headphone. Notice the 15db difference between 20hz and 80hz. An absolute joke.

Is what they are, not 10db. Don't change the basis of your argument.
"cheaper"

Exactly. Simple room treatment isn't costly and it's for a "perfected" sound. Out of the box, monitors like the LSR305s are still incredibly good and they don't especially require any.

The level of denial speakerfags are in.
The only one in denial here is you, who doesn't own neither headphones or speakers. I don't even particularly care about which is better. I own both, I'll keep on buying better headphones and I'll keep on watching you getting triggered by the mention of speakers.
Arguing that mid-fi headphones outperform monitors is a straight-up lie which you can't back up by measurements nor coherent arguments.

I assume you're also the user who said you'd be "shitting up the audio general". I waited for you but you never came, did you realize how powerless you were ?

I wish this would just stop already. Feet as fucking disgusting, just look at this shit. The most revolting part of the human body. Evolutionary mutilated hands with freakishly large palms and freakishly small fingers. So big and unwieldy as to be basically useless, not dexterous at all. Weird little misshapen 'nails' covering the top of the weird little misshapen fingers. I fucking hate them, they belong inside a sock, inside of a closed-toed shoe for all eternity, unless you are asleep, in which case socks are acceptable as long as they are thick enough to not show the individual toes.
