It happened in steps for me really, I bought some earbuds to listen to music on the bus and never cared too much. Someone showed me other earbuds that were better for 15 dollars both sony junk earbuds in comparison today, they fell apart after a week. I bought some 10 dollar sony studio monitor headphones in 9th grade(about 8-9 years ago) they lasted me a while and sounded great for the money until they broke a year later. I searched for new headphones with requirements this time, they had to be over the ear and sound better then what I had. I bought Skullcandy Hesh headphones, the very first generation. Those broke after 3 months. I bought new ones which broke 2 months later(same headphones). I went on amazon with 40 dollars and found Sennheiser. The HD515 headphones changed me world view, I bought a set refurbished for 35 and change and they were hands down the best thing I ever heard from headphones, at a fraction of the cost I think they were like 80-90 for new ones at the time. I still have them. I started listening to everything I could to find something wrong and I did of course, they werent the end all be all. I grew up and got out of high school and got a job, bought my first set of 100+ dollar headphones, the first VModa LP headphones. They were great eventually the drivers died. Now I have more money and needed to replace those and bought the all might ATH-M50xBL Audiotechnica headphones which I love. I felt empty after a while with my M50x's and found myself missing the Sennheiser sound, new things had come out since my HD515s and bought the HD598 headphones, I actually love the beige and brown color scheme and the sound was... Ok. I was disappointed and confused. They sounded ok but without life. I started doing research but everyone only praised them. Recently because of massdrop I was sold on the idea of an amp, and searched high and low for an amp/dac combo and settled on just an amp, the Magni 2. The Magni 2 gave my headphones a kick that nothing else had driving them to new heights and I was sold. The headphones I say really made me appreciate audio were 15 dollar sony earbuds, 10 dollar sony studio monitors and 35 dollar Sennheiser's. I recently have started changing my intrest from headphones to speakers and currently looking for speakers and a turn table. I will have a set up that keeps me coming back for music. I love music and clean audio and that started from the way bottom.

are these pads any thicker than the stock pads? I find that the stock pads on the HD6XX are shallow enough that my ear touches the foam on the driver and it can get annoying

I'm considering upgrading my entire audio setup at my pc. I have a Scarlett 2i2 that I've used when performing. I was planning on having my mic go in and have it go out to some jbl/yamaha/any brand speakers. Would the 2i2 be enough for these headphones or should I get a separate amp/dac?

Currently running them through the headphone jack on a Scarlet 2i2 (1st Gen) audio interface and wondering if upgrading to a FiiO K5 would make a noticeable differenced in audio quality in your opinion?. Open to other all in one DAC/Amp options around that price point with line outs for monitors. Thanks!

All Sales are final ?
First time shopping with Drop, and unfortunately I didn't noticed that the shipping time will be a month later. Contact them to cancel the order. but they told me all sales are final. I have to say this is sad. and all I see is a label said "free return" instead of "all sales are final" under the add to cart bottom. I know they may have a explanation for their policy, but this thing is so tricky.

HD58x or HD6XX
I am debating if I should get the HD58x or the HD6xx. I did some research but its still hard to chose. I'm mainly gaming and I don't have an amp. Well idk if the Blue Yeti counts as an amp or not. I will either plug this into my blue yeti or motherboard(link below). I'm a newbie to sounds and stuff so please dumb it down for me. If you have a recommendation of headphones that are better for gaming and listening to music comment it. Thanks for your help.

IEM for gaming, positional accuracy
So I have a pair of p38x but my ears are very headphone unfriendly. After 30 mins I start to get annoyed by them cause my ears hit the driver covers which is very uncomfortable for me. I wish I could just get some deeper cup covers but I have not seen any. So I am in the market for a whole new experience and I don't know what I am looking at for an IEM with good positional accuracy or soundstage. I don't need all the base, I just want to know where stuff is at in the game. Thanks in advance!
