all of the headphones I mentioned have measurably poor bass performance, you've simply never heard anything better

 

try an electrostat and you'll understand what I'm talking about, some people like it and some people don't, but objectively it's more accurate

 

before I start a fight let me stress something: this hobby is highly subjective and it doesn't really matter what's right from an objective standpoint, what matters is what you like most, and in my case I want as little noise/bloom/"felt" bass as physically possible

1. Nad HP50

2. Sennheiser HD650

3. Denon D7000

 

I love my HD650's and D7000 but hardly ever get to listen to them b/c of noisy environments. Nothing beats the portability and isolation of the HP50's combined with the extremely balanced sound. The Sennheiser is slightly too dark and the Denon is a little bit too v-shaped. The HP50, although lacking in detail and soundstage, seems to strike the perfect balance.

That's a nice and expensive collection you got there. Now if you dont mind me asking, what the hell do you do for a living :D ?

Simply in IT Helpdesk & Support.

 

Just needed to be well-informed when some people wanted to sell their stuff at the right time.

  1. STAX SR-507
  2. Grado 325is

 

Since getting the 507 my Grado headphones have pretty much gone unused. Luckily I find the 507 comfortable and it pairs pretty well with my 727II. I plan on eventually getting the 009 or its successor one day which would probably get more use out of this amp.

I've heard electrostats, meh... I like more tactility to my music

Most of the time analytical 'phones are just boring as... I'd rather have a more musical presentation, don't care about having a perfectly flat response (yawn)
If it's a subjective hobby, you really should stop stating your opinions as fact too, nearly all your previous posts are condemning well-regarded headphones in a very objective manner (some of the headphones you haven't even heard, yet you are bashing on them)
Meh, I'm in heaven with my so-called bass bloated headphones, it's just all opinion after all I guess

post #4257 of 4600
The thing about the Staxen I've used (a few Lambda models and the Omega2) I've used is that while they measure well and do sound good, their bass just doesn't do it for me. The only way I really can describe it is weird, almost diffused. I'm not necessarily looking for a thump, but their presentation just never sounded like any concert hall I've been to. I still yearn for an SR007, but if I do end up with one, it certainly wouldn't be because I liked their bass.

1)Sennheiser HD700

2)Denon AH-D2000

3)Fidelio X1

4) Modded Grado SR325i

 

Really depends on the music I'm listening to and my mood. Sometimes I want the warm and bassy X1 or the hard hitting and more V shaped D2000. Through my main listening setup the HD700 makes me the happiest. Looking hard at a set of HE500s for a bit of orthostatic goodness.

I never state my opinion as fact, I state facts as facts, maybe you should learn to differentiate between what is objective and what is subjective on your own instead of expecting people to append everything they say with "imo"

 

If I see a large undershoot and subsequent ringing on a 30Hz square wave, I would say "this headphone has poor bass control". The driver is taking too long to return to a smooth line so objectively it's not as good as a headphone that returns to a smooth line faster.  This is a purely objective statement, there is no opinion in it, I am describing what I see in the measurements and nothing more.

I never said anything about bass bloat, but yes the only thing that matters in the end is whether you like what you hear or not, not if everything your headphones are outputting is perfect

Yeah, just unnatural to me too, the lack of impact is really unrealistic to me

Heard a lot of music live too, play instruments etc. so I know what realism in music is to me


My bad takato14, just sometimes your constant angry, forthright tone kinda gets to me lol

...but seriously, calling HD800 a fart machine? Eh... just no
