Shure SRH750DJ: Where's the bass that everyone is talking about? (Direct comparison to M50's bass) - Page 2

This probably just comes down to preference unless you have a faulty pair for I find the Shure's bass quite nice and present.  My preferred sound sig is somewhat emphasized controlled bass, warm mids and extended but not sharp highs.  I think the 750DJs comes close to hitting all those marks to my ears.  They are my fav fun 'phones except for the chassis (which I have taken care of).  I didn't dig the 840s because I found them a bit too cold sounding and lacking of bass.  The 750s was the perfect antidote.  You - the op - seem to want yet even more bass presence so it is time to look elsewhere methinks.

 

By the way, from my experience, burn in doesn't generally bring out more bass.  I find burn in will tighten up a headphone's sound sig and sometime calm down harsh highs.  I have yet to hear a headphone who's bass presence increases over time.  Personally, I think that would be more from adjusting to the headphone and someone unconsciously focusing in on the bass, hence it sounds more present.

Hey Guys

 

M50s has no coloration on its bass because of its accurate neutral response. it will deliver or give you the natural sound of the bass the way recorded in a studio. and fairly midrange so as crisp and crystal clear highs. That's why award-winning grammy music and sound engineers and producers preferred so much the m50s.

 

M50s bass or low frequencies could be strong or less heard, it all depends on a studio engineer's emphasis. it leads to versatility. m50s bass become powerful if the bass in a mp3 is well-colored. m50s bass can become less focussed if the bass in a mp3 is less emphasized.
