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.
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:)
Okay to C.R Helmrich, isn´t it irritating that the sound leaks?I mean, if i use headphones, and don´t have them tightly, let´s say i lift them a bit, the sound become, very clear, and not in a good way, sound like a mobile phone if you get what i mean.
Are you using any kind of amplifier? I have the same headphones combined with a Total Airhead . If I am listening to bass heavy music my ears literally vibrate. Given enough power there is NOTHING wrong with the bass in the phones.
Cushions can change their form. And , yes, I have my doubts about burn-in too. It taked me a few months to understand the sound of HD 650. But it's not necesary because of burn-in process. Probably because it was my first audiophile-class phones. It wasn't the case for HD 800. The sound has stopped to change after 2-3 days. Also the sound changes a lot (huges differences) depending how You wear them. http://www.meier-audio.homepage.t-online.de/tipstricks.htmThe main rule is: headphones should be put a little bit down from ear channel and a bit in front (well, the picture says it all)Even an audiophile-class phones can sound inappropriately if You don't wear them smart way.
It´s really annoying on these head phones on higher volumes, i do remember it annoyting on my other pair as well, but it was a bit better. The AKG cheap ones have a duller sound so it even that out.

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
Not to sure about how it is with the policy of returning headphones.Can i return them with that 30 days money back thing?
QuoteOkay so i bought the HD280 Pro as i read it was good, with accurate sound and such.But i am not satisfied with it Every headpone (and speaker) sounds different, and different people are going to have different preferences. If you are picky about sound quality, you should go a store and listen before buying. If you can't do that, you've got to understand that you are taking a risk. And the specifications are not that helpful either... There are different methods for measuring headphones (and speakers), and with headphones, it's difficult to duplicate interaction with the ear. Plus, some manufacturer's seem to "fudge" the specs. If you've got frequency response curves for two diffeerent headphones, from the same (reputable) manufacturer, that might give you a clue. Curves (or a frequency response spec.) from two different manufacturer's is generally useless.Several years ago, I decided it was time to upgrade from my Koss HV1's. I went to the store, and after listening to several pairs, I decided none of them sounded as good as my Koss... (Those Koss headphones are now dead and gone. )I've got a pair of HD280's and Grado SR225. I prefer the "open" Grados when I don't need isolation, but neither pair has that much bass. I've also got a pair of Superlux HD668B's[/u][/url]. These have more bass, and the overall sound is not bad. (For the price, it sounds GREAT!) But, I don't actually listen to headphones that often, and I have not done any A/B listening tests... So, I'm not making any recommendations. QuoteNot to sure about how it is with the policy of returning headphones.Can i return them with that 30 days money back thing?Of course, that would depend on the seller's policies...
I'd give a chance to run them during few months. A few times I got some audio hardware and wasn't impressed but later actually got the way it is. But also there were some failures as well. Luckily a cheap ones. Good alternatives in the similar price range:Audio Technica ATH-M50, Denon 2000, Sennheiser HD 5xx-6xx, Superlux 668B (aka Samson SR850) http://www.head-fi.org/products/category/headphones
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.
You can see if it's full size headphones (those cover an ears completely) here http://www.headphone.com/As of comfort, I can speak for HD650 and Samson SR850/Superlux HD668B. 650s are comfortable. I can wear them during all day without sweeting or any other issue. Sennheisers have great velour cushions. Superlux/Samson are not bad at comfort but they are less comfortable than Sennheiser's.
