I have the Sennheiser PC 37X from Massdrop not too long ago; how would these compare? I'm usually not going to ask for something like a gaming headset to compare against actual music-focused cans, but the PC 37X is not terrible in any sense. What I'm basically asking is would the AKG M220 Pro be a better music headphone or should I stick with what I got...on paper at least?
I'm similarily interested in how these would fare as gaming headsets, seems comfortable, good sound quality I presume.
I use these almost exclusively as gaming headphones, they work great. Wide soundstage so you can pinpoint where sounds are coming from, the semi open design really helps with that. Good sound quality, especially for the price, but they are studio monitors so they are pretty light on the bass, very balanced sound overall. In terms of music listening, as i mentioned above, very balanced sound, but they are basically open back so they do have some noise bleed. The impedence is just enough that you have to really crank the volume on both pc and phones but they work fine with or without an amp.
Thank you for the info. Now I really want to get in on this drop.
Basically I can get the HD650 with a similar experience, correct? [If Massdrop holds true, it's exactly the same]
