Tip 6: Buy another headset or headphones
Sometimes everything doesn’t help and you have to admit that you made a mistake. To prevent this from happening again, you can read the extensive Basic Tutorials Headset Buyer’s Guide.
Or maybe you’ll be more happy with a nice headset. Below you will find some recommendable models for beginners:
These semi-open headphones offer an amazingly detailed, neutral sound for its low price. The material quality and comfort of the ear cushions have to be compromised. Fortunately, the cable is interchangeable.
|frequency range||10 Hz – 30 kHz|
|Ear cushion material||artificial leather|
|Connection cable||1x 1 m, 1x 3 m (interchangeable)|
Takstar Pro 82
These headphones form the basis of the Cooler Master MH751 / 752. Especially the very high wearing comfort, due to a low weight and a lot of padding, knows how to convince. Here, too, the material quality is not completely convincing. The sound is relatively neutral overall. The Pro 82 is delivered in a sturdy wooden case in which it can be easily transported.
|Frequency range||10 Hz – 20 kHz|
|Ear cushion material||artificial leather (pad not exchangeable!)|
|connecting cable||2.2 m, interchangeable|
Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro / DT 990 Pro
The classics of the Heilbronn company are very robustly built. The wearing comfort is also good. The excellent spare parts supply of the manufacturer is also praiseworthy. Unfortunately, the cable is firmly connected to the headphones. Also the very sharp highs and the slightly raised bass are not everyone’s cup of tea.
The DT 770 Pro has a closed design and a smooth cable, the DT 990 Pro is an open headphone with spiral cable.

The extremely light and very open headphones from the Japanese audio forge know how to please, above all, through its excellent location of sounds. The sound is generally very neutral.
The AD500X has to accept criticism especially for its cable. It is not removable and of inferior quality.

As you can see, you can improve the sound of your headset in a cost-effective (or rather expensive) way. But be careful: Some tips can also (subjectively) worsen the sound. So try to get the most out of your headset yourself!
