I am getting a pair of headphones to replace an old Logitech pair and thought to buy a little more fidelity this time and not gaming gimmicky headsets. I have it down to these two…
The Cooler Master MH752 are basically slightly tweaked Takstar Pro82.
My First and highest concern is comfort. The the narrow ear pad of the HD4.40’s. A lot of people have complained. But I don’t have large ears so I was wondering if someone who has the HP’s could may be post the vertical and horizontal diameter of the inner ear-cup opening/cavity/ear housing?
And if they do turn out to be too small what are a very good fit replacement ear-pads? Brainvavs? Wicked cushions?
Second concern - the Mic. I do a lot of Skype/Discord … so Mic is pretty important. Even some casual on-request podcast/audio book recording. From YouTube review of Zeos etc the mic of MH752 is not bad. But how is the mic on HD4.40? Does it pick up too much of the surrounding? Ceiling fan?
My third concern is Wired vs Wireless. Would I lose sound quality in this? The HD4.40’s DO work in wired mode. But that would defeat the entire purpose.
Because a Wireless headphone has the same about of hardware in the same size of the ear cup as a wired. Extra hard ware but same space. I would think they have to sacrifice something to make it fit?
