post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
i currently own the denon c55k1 with the comply foam tips and while they do sound nice they don't have enough bass in them so it's time for something new

i listen to alot of rap and trance

thanks

edit- a friend of mine just told me to maybe look into a portable headphone amp, would that work? and can i use the same one for home use?

well for bass heavy cans look into ue super fi. 5 eb's or atrios a amp will improve sound quality but it wont really make a can heavier on bass like that they usually help refine the sound and bring out all the detail and smoothness

Future Sonics Atrio M5 or Klipsch Image X10 for that price range.

most headphones can be worn either way if they are able to go over the ear in the first place shure's being one of them.

The Dr. Dre IEM's are said to have good base. I don't know how good they are, but they go for around 160 I think.

If Dr. Dre's IEMs are anything like his "Beats" headphones, I'd stay away from them like the plague. You don't want the bass to overpower the rest of the music now...

SF5 EB and Atrio M5 would probably be your best bets.

I see you haven't read up on the Dr. Dre headphones at all and falling for the 'rap' stereotype.
Good on ya for making yourself look like an idiot basing your opinion on assumptions and no facts.

Anyway, C551's = not enough bass!?

WHAT!?!?

Honestly.....

Also I always wear earphones over-the-ear as it reduces any sort of microphonics significantly.

You want something that sounds good other than doing big bass. I agree with the Image X10 suggestion.

Have you even tried out the Beats? They are nothing like you describe. The bass doesn't overpower anything. If anything I find them a tad too bright.

I have to agree, Dr Dre's beats headphones bass does not overpower the music, it sounds really good with great bass.

Look into the JVC FX500's Lovely wooden IEM that would be a definate upgrade over your Denon's!

There is a 2nd hand pair on Ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/Victor-(JVC)-HP-...15111004r13384

or you can browse around on some Japanese sites for a good price. I bought mine from Seyo Shop.

when i use them on my pc, the bass is wonderful(going straight to a asus xonar d2 soundcard) but when i use them with my ipod on the commute to work..the bass is is rarely there and the highs are so overpowering that in time i end up getting some ear fatigue

i dont think he can go for the image x10's. those sell for 350 and the half off sale is over. he wanted it to be less than 200. i would also reccommend the x10's, but its not under his preferences/requirements.
