Just as accurate as with open window? Do want this. How to find? How to measure? :)

You guys are a bunch of bassheads. These have perfect bass.

Well if they had perfect bass, they'd satisfy bassheads too now wouldn't they :P

Depending on your definition of bassheads.  I see bassheads as those who want as much bass as possible(to an extent).  They dont satisfy bassheads because they have a proper amount, perfect is different for everyone so i wouldn't say they are perfect but ill give them proper.  Although i would like to feel it alittle more(just feel, im happy with the audible loudness) but im not complaining because if they did have a strong bass impact, they would be 50% percent less flawed to haters and be worth a lot more.

Now to modding, does anyone know of another headphone that has been modded by opening up one of the ports that circle the driver?  It seems that that would increase bass impact by allowing the driver more air and the cotton(?) that is covering the ports would not absorb bass if removed compared to if it were there.

Joo bypass3d my theory.

 

@Kiteki No. He wasn't talking about sine waves in amps/dacs. He was talking about sine waves being used in all sorts of audio tests. Sine waves are the building blocks of music. Anyhow, even if you feed music through the headphone and plot out a graph with the results, it still won't say much about how a headphone sounds. Timbre cannot be measured from FR, square wave, etc.

I pretty much agree.  Like I said a skullcandy earbud with flat FR, perfect square-wave and perfect THD+N doesn't sound like a Tesla T1, well why not? There has to be a paper, some hard data, to evidence why it doesn't.

 

If not, the data we currently have can't tell the difference between a Skullcandy earbud and a Tesla T1.

You need to use html. Or, if you get the full editor, use the image button on it.

so much more bass on my senn IE7 ...
you can compare with the senn IE8, they don't have the FR  for the IE7:

Auspicious date, auspicious post count, and thus I have received my SRH940. Hell yeah.

Pics and impressions tomorrow biggrin.gif

Well done crinacle. 888

 

Why auspicious date, if I may ask?

post #2804 of 3844

More nice bass on the srh940 (music available in lossless for free legally).

 



EDIT: Submitted my review finally. I  don't want people to bash the srh940, without trying something as trivial as adjusting the headband.

Doing that headband trick worsened imaging for me.  I'm also not sure if you can rationally expect people to wear them like that, mehdi, but I'm glad it works for you, at least.  Maybe you could mod the pads somehow to get more clamping force?

 

Bcasey, no one's going to take you seriously if you keep posting so brashly.  While I wouldn't call it perfect, the bass on these sounds pretty good to my ears as well, but I do find them a bit harsh.  I also remember them sounding off without some form of amplification. 

 

I'm listening to these again for the first time in about 2 months, so I don't have a lot more to say atm.
