Nothing compares to the planars in bass quality. The LCD2 has my favorite bass out of all headphones that aren't the D7000. HE-400 and MD 3.2 are very, very close. ACtually, I think those three are more or less equivalent in bass, but as a whole, the LCD2 wins due to everything else integrated with the bass.

Ahh I see.. does it even beat out D7000 bass?

The D7000's bass is my favorite due to the way the sub bass hits. Quality-wise, the D7000 is definitely not as refined in the bass.

TH-900 bass is much more refined than the D7000 while also hitting hard and going very low. I like its "corpus" better than the LCD-2.

I just love the omnipotence the D7000's bass has. I heard the TH-900 offers a similar presentation. More refined or not, it doesn't matter to me. As long as it's similar, the TH-900 sounds like a winner.

How high would you rate the X1's bass quality on a scale from 1 to 10?

I love the HD800s soundstage, but I keep wondering if the signature would be too bright/lean as my sole headphone - because I would have to sell off every other headphone I have before I could consider affording that.  I wonder how good the HD800s genre bandwidth can be.  I see a lot of people saying they're mainly geared towards classical.

 

So I'm not sure if it's better to go with multiple mid-fi cans or a single flagship can like the HD800.

Harder for me to judge quality, but I'd put it at around a 7. It sometimes can come off as one note-ish and bloomy. It really depends on the genre of music and frequency of the bass.

Quality-wise, I find the Pro 2900 to have the best mid bass articulation that I've heard.

Hmm, I see no 'stats there!

And mids and treble quantity and treble quality?

I didn't like the Pro 2900's mids. They sounded very distant. The treble was sharp and artificial sounding.

david: Lol, well yeah, the stats main expertise as far as I've heard from the SR407 was that amazingly crisp yet non-fatiguinbg treble. SOOOOO good. Neither of the two stats I tried had very highlighted bass, so it wasn't an area I focused on. The ESP950 had amazing mids though. ABout as good as I've heard, but didn't have the same body as something like the LCD2, 650, Annie, MD 3.0.

No was talking about the X1's mids and treble quantity and treble quality.

Oh. You're asking too much for me to rate it's quality. I'm not comfortable numbering quality.

Quantity?

X1 bass/mids/treble

8.5/7/7.5

The mids are just ever so slightly recessed when compared to the bass. The treble is smooth overall, with a slight peak at 10khz which can rarely be zingy, but it's not really an issue, and it's well in line with the mids overall. If the X1 had less bass, I'd say it's be in the realm of being neutral sounding.

The X1 is a damn good headphone, with it's weakest aspect being that the bass can sometimes be overwhelming. SOMETIMES.
