Mocking car audio is one thing, head-fi, but I DO think we should refrain from mocking music. "clever" phrases like (c)rap music do all you dinosaurs a disservice.

I don't really like Hip Hop but I read the thread start and thought: Hmm... that's a nice opportunity to test my Grado GS-1000 which imo are capable of a lot of bass in combination with a lot of quality in the lower regions. In comparison to some other cans that had nearly the same amount of bass in every song, the GS-1000 produced a lot of bass where there was bass, whereas they didn't add extra bass to songs that in reality have less bass.

Anyway, instead of listening to the youtube link I just got the FLAC version of the song... because youtube to check sound quality with HP?... nah.
After the first seconds I thought this would be just the beginning and the bass will probably start to hammer through my ears - but nothing. It was the same beat throughout the whole song. OK... now what is this? That bass isn't even low at all... not to mention the lack of texture. Quite crappy if you ask me. It appears to me that lower end HPs will provide "deeper" bass in that song, while higher end ones will just reveal what the bass is like: textureless, lifeless, weightless and not even deep at all. That is because I put on my Grado SR-60 and they really deliver more amount of bass than the GS-1000. That's probably because the lowest of the Grados adds some distortion to the bass which makes it sound heavier, while GS-1000 reveal the weak bass.
And it is not that the GS-1000 has weak bass. They definately can deliver the the most bass of all the available Grados by far.


If you want to test your speakers give Tord Gustavsen Trio - Karmosin a try (from the "Being There" album). The drummer in fact is kind of stroking () his drumkit most of the time... but the production is able to get the lowest tones possible out of it. The bass (instrument) also has a lot of body... that's what I call HP/Speaker demanding bass.

That just means it caters to the lowest common denominator.

Solid writeup. I don't even need to bother listening to it now, though that's really what I suspected.

Most of the pressurized feeling you get out of car subs, even competition car subs, is between 40-50Hz anyways. Pretty low, but not jules-verne depth-plumbing low.

Glad this thread led to some real demo tracks, however. I'll have to give those a shot.

+1 on Tord Gustavsen Trio - Being There (2007). First thing I play whenever I get new equipment.

Second album I play The Dillinger Escape Plan - Ire Works (2007) tracks 4 and 7.

I just died a little bit on the inside.

Note to self: Dvorak should stop for no YouTube video.

What's with the "Indeed" avatars? I never really got that. I remember Duggeh having several.
