Having it set to 2 or halfway to 3 notches adds a euphoric amount of bass without it sounding to 'off' from the main driver's bass.

Not sure why the bass driver has a secondary 'reaction' point at 18-19.5 hz. Not much is ever gonna reach that down low, but still.... interesting.

I'll put it through it's paces before I make a decision.

I'm just surprised at how well balanced the main driver is otherwise. It's like Sennheiser level flat. The mids are pretty healthy. smily_headphones1.gif

 

True dat! We'll just have to wait for the final outcome, I guess...

Yea, you're right. Things will get greater later...

 

And, you know, it's actually good to have a hobby like this. At times like these, though very disheartening, can easily be temporarily fixed with the sale of a piece of gear.

 

And congrats!!! You deserve it!!!  :beerchug:

This song, scared the CRAP out of me when I first heard it, and I had the bass set to half way.

The bass hits RIGHT at the Crusher's reaction point (starting at 14 seconds in)..., and since it constantly hits that point, releases, then hits again... it was... an experience.

Using this song as a reference for where to put the bass setting, I feel 2 notches is ideal. There are 8 in total, so imagine just how much more the bass driver can engage...

I really wish I didn't have to sell the M500, man. I was going to include it with the K612 so you can send back with the E12 when the time came. I really wanted you to experience its awesomeness...

Wow...

 

I had the K612s when you posted this. I love how present that sub bass is on these with the K702 pads. Real nice extension, I must say!

 

Then, I put on my XBA-H3s... and WOW!!! Where are my 1540s... *walks away*

Letting go of headphones you enjoy is never easy. Trust me... I've lost pieces of my soul time and time again. But the D7000 hurt the most...twice.

Tell me about it... especially the twice part... smh

 

In all honesty, though, I think you really should go back to your precious babies if the opportunity ever presents itself.

Okay, so another observation on the Crusher. The first notch of the Bass setting isn't like sliding it all the way to the lowest position, yet it functions the same. The bass driver is essentially not doing anything until you get to the second notch. Lol, I like the Crusher at it's WEAKEST bass driver level. Anything more and it does get a bit ridiculous (though 3 notches can be satisfying at times), and anything less makes silences the bass driver...

Lol I missed this.

What happened to your 1540s? I didn't realize you let those go...

Sounds like you're having fun, my friend lol

 

With that said, I'll end my 2000th post by saying goodnight and enjoy! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

G'night mangz. I'll probably get on CoD to test these babies out when I get home. I expect hilarity.

Why... why... WHY DO THE MSTAGE DRIVERS KEEP F'ING ME UP?!

Its been like this forever. They just don't get recognized every other time! It's pure random and I've determined it is down to my luck as I've tried literary everything everything short of a complete Windows re-install... many times.

 

Solution - power it on, off and on again... It almost always gets recognized the second time around... WTF?!

I think I need some head-fi now... And I'll try that song MLE posted :beerchug:

 

And test the station on 1/2 volume.

Oh no. Conquer, I mean that the Skullcandy Crusher's bass driver kicks in REAL strongly during the song's 50-60hz sections. The song itself doesn't have some weird volume spikes.

The more I'm using the Crusher... I'm starting to get bass headaches. DAMMIT. I was hoping that wouldn't happen. I should've expected it. The bass kicks in right at the mid bass... which is my weakness, but I hoped it was a problem i had with standard drivers and not this... unorthodox bass driver.

Ah well... doesn't bode well... I hate my being so headache-prone.

Oh well I know what you mean. Not with bass but I have the same issue in the treble's sibilance region... I am extra sensitive to that so when a headphone is edgy there it's a no-go. Orthodynamics don't apply for some reason as they are simply effortless and don't have this issue [well at least those I've heard]. K612 Pros are my limit. Anything more and that'd be too much.

But I ironically love airy and extended highs :P

 

Regardless, thanks for the kind words guys. And good luck!

I'll be waiting for the 560 :popcorn:
