Very impressed with how big of a sound such a small headphone can produce...

How do you feel about the bass? I dunno what genres you listen to, but I certainly don't find them lacking in body for my EDM.
post #16535 of 30684

To me they actually have more body than the Anniversaries. That's what I meant by big sound...

 

I listen to rap/hip hop and there is plenty punch when present. I would say that the bass is between the AE and X1... but with a signature more similar to that of the AE. To those who say this thing lacks sub bass are insane... or extreme bassheads.

It does have 70mm drivers.  :tongue_smile:

 

Not that driver size is always correlated to how "big" a headphone sounds, but still...

 

It's basically all driver inside.  Looks like giant KSC75s...

If these had a detachable cable and thicker pads I would so jump on these at the $150 range. I wonder if Brian at BTG can mod these to have a detachable cable. Also, I wonder if the beyer velours fit without altering its sound.

Too bad you don't have your Anniversaries anymore to compare to...

I thought you were going with the X1?  I think that would work better with rap and hip-hop.

By sub bass, I'm referring to anything between the 20-35hz range. Compared to the X1, there is definitely much less volume at those frequencies compared to their mid bass. Once you jump to 50hz and up the MA900 fills out quite well, though the X1's broader range fills out the bass more.

But because most music tends to focus on mid bass anyways, the MA900 doesn't lack in bass. Not to mention the Mixamp cuts off at 35hz anyways, so for movies and whatnot, the MA900 is very full sounding, with plenty of bass.

Have you thought about getting some beyer pads for these? I know they may alter the sound but it may not be by much. And the added comfort will be very welcoming. I have big ears so after a long session they are soar from sitting on the drivers for too long.

The X1 is a great all rounder regardless, especially if you gravitate towards bass heavy genres.

Legit Beyer pads are too expensive, and I might hate the SQ being changed.

As for ears touching the driver cover... after having used the Koss clip ons so much (where your ears are ALWAYS pressed against the driver covers), the MA900 has less pressure than the clip ons, so it's a complete non-issue for me.
