Headphones + Subwoofer??

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

This may sound stupid but has any1 tried it? Never have I but would solve the real bass impact problem I guess

Nope, never tried it, and don't really intend to. I'd just use a whole speaker setup, lol.

Try it out and tell us all how it goes.

It was pretty popular with the K1000 crowd.

U mean a built in subwoofer or a whole seperate one next to you,

o-o either one sounds like fun....for a while.

a separate one... only thing I can imagine is myself looking like an idiot wearing my HPs next to a subwoofer with no loud speakers playing. Defo sounds like something fun

You will be able to feel just the sub vibration.

i run headphones and my subwoofer (dual 10" custom) for gaming, occasionally with music if i'm too lazy to switch cans, but for music i typically pick the right can for whatever music i'm in the mood for.

 

 

for gaming though, it's pretty amazing :)

I run with my buttkicker LFE at times. Many headphones are just lacking in the bass department. Understandable don´t having the dynamics speakers so it does come in handy. As long as you don´t over do it of course.

 

I could also run with my sub but then the hole idea of using headphones for privacy is shot ;)

I have a Buttkicker on my PC gaming system.  When you use it with headphones, do you just use a twin-jack Y-adapter at the output jack of your headphone amplifier - to feed your Buttkicker with the same signal that's going to your headphones?   If so, is the SQ of your headphones affected?  What amp are you using?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Ha that is such a great idea! I went to my living room and used my 5.1 stereo. I tried it with my closed headphones fully on, then one ear on/one ear off - now THAT was cool - you have the POWER of the song while getting the clarity at the same time - me likey :D

it's a great idea, and it works (infact its in it's own category of awesome) but the subwoofer is very 'antisocial'...:D

Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips was a big fan of the headphones + subwoofer idea. Even hosted a headphone concert tour...

ive used a splitter to listen to headphones and a speaker set up at the same time.  my phones are open, so everything syncs together beautifully and the vibration coupled with the detail is amazing.  good times.
