Okay so i bought the HD280 Pro as i read it was good, with accurate sound and such.
But i am not satisfied with it, the first is the pressure it gives, itīs like i am on the verge of getting a headache, but still not getting one.
Maybe it will disappear through use, maybe not.

But more importantly, the sound.
even my Cheap AKG something, sound better with the bass.
Now i am not one who wants enormous bass or something, but you know, normal vibrations feeling kind of bass.
That gives you that feeling.

This just, sound like there is bass, but it isnīt there;S

I tried putting on some bass sound through the night, about 10 hours to see if there is any Burn In effect.
It does sound alot better than from when i first listened, cause then it was like a Tin Can or something.
But it still doesnīt give me that Real sound feeling.


sorry for bad explanation, maybe someone knows about these headphones?

I am thinking about sending them back, but i donīt know what to get.
I want something like this, isolation, more comfortable and better sound.


Thanks:)

Why would you care to equalize YouTube signal? There are soundcards that can do processing anywhere in the signal path. I also happen to own a pair of AKG 141's and don't consider them "cheap". Both his and bass are perfect. Although, true bass can only be experienced with loudspeakers.

I never said what AKG i have, but itīs K512.

And well wahty i care about isnīt really youtube, itīs All as all, every sound.

I donīt really like that i will have to make the player change the sound so that it will sound "right".
If you get what i mean;O!


And well i use my onboard, but have tried my realtek pcie one, but well they sound about the same to me, and i have to use the onboard for serveral reasons.

But what should i do, do you have or anyone else have any recommendation on other headphones?

I Really really want closed one that is very comfortable, you know, cover the Entire ear any stuff:)

And i want good sound(no shit sherlock).

The price range is about Max 200 Dollars i guess?

PS: Cause i donīt guess Burn In will make That big difference from now on (not that i really know anything about it).

One of the likely reasons is that your onboard sound adapter isn't driving them well; poor bass reproduction and unexpectedly low maximum volume are the main symptoms of that. If this is the case, you need a separate amplifier or a sound card with a built-in preamp, like E-mu 0404 USB (a good value for its money, and you get to use it with laptops as well). Actually scratch that, if you want "good sound" with headphones as you claim to, there's no way around an amplifier somewhere in the chain.
