real satisfying quality lows. maybe down to 20 hz WITH AUTHORITY.
20hz is not ultra low bass. Come back when you're in single figures and still holding up at high spl and low distortion.

Damn, somebody missed out on biology class. If you think you can hear <10hz you should read up on that.

Damn, looks like something failed English....

I didn't say you can hear it. You don't. Ice Age glacier crack is damn scary. You can't get that with headphones.

When an artist calls for a subwoofer hit, I want to feel it.
You need the Edition 9.

I hope you don't refer to me as a 'thing', but apparently english is not your main language either.

Ok please explain me:

20hz is not ultra low bass (ok then what is? This is the lowest most people can hear at a specific age, the majority of people can't even hear that anymore.

And what do you mean with 'in single figures', I don't understand.

Cheers

The OP never stated what you said he stated.

The OP gave an example that the 770's DO have enough impact for him (though yes he also wants more 'definition' than what the 770's can give him). So he definitely isn't looking for "moronic, huge bass that just destroys the music you are listening to", which headphones supposedly don't have.

So why don't we give opinions using that as a baseline, instead of flaming?
What has the bass impact of 770, but with more definition?

Is it really that unholy to ask for some bass?

What about some Darth Beyers?

Well said!

I'm somewhat of a basshead myself, although I'm not looking for the Honda Civic with the windows rattling type of bass.

I've owned the following headphones, Grado 225, 325i, HF-1, RS1, RS2, JVC HP-DX1000, AKG K340, AKG 701, Beyer DT990, Senn HD600 and currently have the cans in my signature.

None of the Grado's have the bass you're looking for. Although the RS1 with C-Pads I really liked. The C-Pads really enhanced the bass and tamed the harsh highs.

The Senn HD-650s have nice full bass that IMO is well integrated with the mids & highs.

The Darth Beyers have tons of bass and sound better than stock DT770, although the bass does overpower the mids & highs with some music.

Thanks! I appreciate the suggestion.

There's a store near me that has a lot of good headphones on a rack, available for trying out...Ultrasone's are among them. I will definitely give them a careful audition.

Again, I appreciate it!

The following is from a Stereophile review of Thiel CS2 speakers that I own:

The Thiel CS2's bass power response is very good to excellent down to about 42Hz. This may not sound unusually deep to audiophiles who do not routinely measure speakers, but a one-third octave warble tone generator and a 125–20Hz sweep show that the Thiel produces flatter and more powerful bass than most of its competitors. Further, 42–45Hz is far deeper than most audiophiles think.

I've also read that for most rock/pop recorded music the low frequency response is in the range of 40-50 Hz.

I have Klipsch La Scala speakers with a rated frequency response of 53Hz - 17,000 and there is NO need for a subwoofer, there is lots of solid undistorted bass!

Yes, 40Hz is wicked low. If some headphone can stay powerfull all the way down there without messing other frequencies, it can produce some insane low rumbling.

Honestly, I'd say the Denon D2000 or if you got the cash, D5000

The reason for buying phones that extend far below 20Hz is that at 20Hz they are not approaching their limits. This allows them to be operating within their linear, distortion-free range as low as we can hear.
post #28 of 246
Thats just an assumption made by you. The poster said to play 20Hz with authority, he never said anything about being able to play 20hz all rumbly and distorted, so I kind of thinked for myself that when he wants to hear 20hz with authority, he wants to hear 20hz undistorted and good sounding. Furthermore my comment was based at the '20hz is not ultra low bass'.

Agreed the Denon 2000 definitely have solid bass, some find it too loose & uncontrolled hence the Markl mods...

I love Denon products! I use their AV receivers exclusively. I'll try them!

Thanks very much!
