I have just listened to the standard Samsung earbuds, the Koss Porta pro and my Razer Megalodon (gaming headset) thats about all the experience with headphones that I have. (Have heard the Beats Solo and they seemed OK to me with this little experience confused_face_2.gif(Wasn't all that impressed by them though, and know that they are extremely overpriced)).

 

The DT880 are way too expensive for me at the moment, I need something in the price class of Creative Aurvana Live and the Sony MDR-XB 700.

Mid-bass is more of the "mainstream bass" IMO. The Beats have a big hump in the mid bass, but roll off quickly in the sub-bass. The sub-bass is the lower frequency bass (generally below 80hz) and would be the bass that a dedicated home theater subwoofer would produce. This has a lot more rumble and eventually can get to a point that is barely audible but you can still feel the sound. I don't know what other cans you were looking at or your original post, but the Ultrasone HFI580/DJ1 would be another bassy headphones to look into.

Hi Guy's,

 

I informed a little about the capacitiy of my headphone Amp's but they must deliver an output of 250mA per channel.

 

Should that be sufficient to drive Orthodynamic or Plannar headphones like the Hifiman HE-500?

 

Thx,

 

Jordo

Second time writing this, my phone screwed up :S

What I originally was going to buy was going to buy is the Creative Aurvana Live, but then I read more about the Sony MDR-XB 700.
I read a little bit about the Ultrasones you suggested but the Norwegian price on them is too expensive.

Thanks for the input on sub-bass/mid-bass.
Any other suggestions?
It dosen't have to be headphones with insane bass but I like it when there is some good and loud bass. Sound leakage is also a concern by the way
Preferably below 90USD but I think I can stretch to 100.

Xb 700 is good for the deep bass. For that bass head type of headphone you won't get much better. But they do fall a bit short on leakage, not much but a little, primarily as result of venting. If you're interested, i have a review:

post #20225 of 29490

In the market for a new set of headphones around the $250-$350 range. I'm currently using a pair of Beats Pros which are fine for the genre of music I normally listen to (hip hop, rap) but they start hurting my ears after about 2-3 hours. I've done some research and was positive that the AKG K550s would be my next set, however, when I listened to them at Best Buy I was pretty disappointed. I thought that the Sennheiser HD558s sounded way better in terms of bass and that the AKGs were a little too harsh on the highs. The only problem I found with the 558s was the sound leakage. I work in an open office environment so I would like to keep leakage to a minimum.

 

Also, comfort is a huge issue as I usually have my headphones on for 8-12 hours a day (listening to music at work and then doubling as a headset for games). So any recommendations you guys have would be greatly appreciated!

It might be the way they amped the headphones, the Senn HD558s (50-Ohm) "might" perform better with say a higher impedance source.

Where the headphones hooked up to something like an mp3 player, or some hidden headphone amplifier?

I'm looking for new headphones in the 200$ range for electronica, D&B, dubstep, and gaming. I already have the ATH-M50 and it disappoints me with the level of bass it pumps out. I'm considering the Custom One Pro or the DT770 with a E11 to accompany both.

Look into Ultrasone. My HFI-780s definitely have more bass impact than my M50s.

indeed, and the HFI-580 have an even more emphasized bass presence, fitting all LolCakeLazors' criteria, given his specified budget. However, the HFI-580 are a bit less balanced than the HFI-780, but both are worth looking into.

Unfortunately they're not available as of now.

Thanks for the recommendation.  I've been reading the reviews and looking at videos on youtube.  The M-80 were my first set and I've been going back on forth on Sennheisers or the ath-m50.  I'm sure the wait for the V-Moda will be worth it.  Appreciate it

Definitely, yeah. I tried the 580s first. The bass was a little too hot for me. smile.gif

I'm not sure, they were just on a wall with play and volume buttons. They had an aux input for mp3 players/phones and that's what I was using.

A little or A WHOLE LOT, depending on the song. If a song has a very Hevy SUb Bass track then shifts into Upper Mid bass well it's gonna tick you off! But so long as you stick with DUb Step which is Sub heavy it should be ok, also they only leak when your listening to them to loud lol

 

if other ppl can hear it then it's a little too loud, but they do leak... not as much as you think but it's noticeable

Need a Recommendation about the set-up I'm about to get:

 

I just got a new MBP Retina Display with Pro Tools. (I want to start doing Hip Hop/Dubstep in the near future)

 

I travel a lot so portability is a major concern.  I'm thinking about getting a Ultrasone Pro 900 + Fiio E7 for my music and listening pleasure.

Also want the ability to upload a track to my Samsung Note 2 an use the same cans +Amp. 

 

Money or budget isnt an issue for me, I think having 1500+ headphones on a Samsung Note2 is overkill and I'll never be able to enjoy the Cans potential. But, if you guys can tell me what you'll recommend to get the best sound quality without breaking my portability rule. I'll be opened to it. 

 

thanks in advance

 

I would prefer over the Ears cans cause I'll be listening to it really loud.

If you plan to start mixing your own music get a Pair of Dt 880s and understand what Neutral bass is like first of all, and when you want to enjoy your music on a Fun can go with the Dt 990 Pro for a nice V-Shaped Fun bass with the clarity in the highs that you've mixed

 

and ofc if u just want to listen and enjoy Dt 990 Pro 250 ohm is ur friend :3, amp it with a cMoy BB [50-100] or something better like a c421 maybe!
