Great Bang for the Buck After many hours of researching phones, I came to a decision on these, and I don’t regret it at all. Since amazon reviews helped me so much to make my choice, I figured I’d write one myself…Let me start off by saying I had been debating between these, Sennheiser HD-202s, and a couple Audio Techinca models. The JVC HARX700 was at the top of my list until the price started rising higher and higher…I almost spent another 15 bucks and got either a set of ATH-M30, ATH-M35, or ATH-M40 phones. After listening to the HTF600s, I’m not sure if anything else in this price range would have gotten me any better of a headphone. It was a decision to either get a very high quality set in the hundreds of dollars price range, or get a decent midrange set. I’d imagine most midrange sets sound pretty similar… so why spend another 15 bucks? And yes, If I stumble into some money, ATH M50s are on my want list… It’d be nice to try those (or something similar) out as…

best value, hands down Let me start by saying I already own some much higher-end headphones such as the Audeze LCD-2.2, Sennheiser HD-800 & HiFi Man HE-400 for comparison. Based on glowing reviews from head-fi, I got a pair to satisfy my curiosity. The main purpose of these was to be a cheap gaming headset with a mod mic added.Straight out of the box, they weren’t super impressive as the bass was hollow, mids recessed and highs were sizzling. I let them play a couple hours at decent volume and came back to witness an amazing transformation. Sounded like a completely different pair after only a couple hours, bass was full and lively, mids tamed a little and the highs settled in. I don’t believe they are fully broken in either, they still seem to be getting better as time goes on. My initial impression was comparing it to a denon d2000, with a full, deep sub-bass and a nice darker signature.I did some A/B quick comparisons with the HE-400 running off a schiit Lyr, the HTF600…

Great phones, especially considering the price. These phones have smile inducing bass. It’s not loose or flabby and doesn’t extend into the mids like the Dre’s, it also reaches really, really low and gets punchy, I like that. A lot of bassy phones tend to be just about that, but these have a decent soundstage and imaging good enough for gaming. The mids aren’t recessed or overpowered by the bass and have good detail, not quite as much as the Sennheiser HD-580/600, but c’mon, those cost around 10x as much. The htf600 may be just a tad darker sounding in the mids. The highs aren’t anywhere near headache making bright like the DT-770(IMO YMMV)or recessed and grainy or one note hsss hsss like a lot of lower end phones.It does most things right, that’s hard to find in a $25 phone. Hell, that’s hard to find in a $80 phone. The biggest drawback is the pleather pads, they tend to get sweaty where it touches you, but you can eliminate that by getting the Beyerdynamic EDT200 velour pads for $20ish. The build quality seems to be less…
