I think it's easier to "feel" the bass on phones with boomy and loose bass, which doesn't equal to quality.

So probably not to the level you're looking for, but it is enough to satisfy most bass heads looking for quality bass.

TMRaven wasn't too far off when he said Beats if your desire is to "feel" the bass. For hard hitting, tight bass, PRO900 will kick Beats' ass all day long.



Ok well maybe I should be more clear, because the amount that the M50 shake my head is satisfying enough, so I guess I mean how much more can you feel the bass than the M50's bass. Also, when you feel the bass is it always just from air being out the pads or can it also just be the vibration from the drivers.

with the pro900s i can feel the drivers vibrating in my ears. you can feel the low end pressure pretty deep in your canals.

Threadsurrection!

Okay, so I recently received the Pro 900s, and have listened to them for hours on end. When I went back to the D7000... it was such a ginormous leap in sound quality, I was put off by the Pro 900s. You know how people exaggerate how much one headphone is better than the other? Well, not this time. I mean it. The D7000 is significantly better than the Pro 900.

I mean... DAMN. The D7000 just steps on the Pro 900 in every single aspect of sound other than mid bass. The Pro 900's aggressive and snappy bass is the ONLY thing they have over the more polite and lower end emphasized bass on the D7000s. In terms of clarity, soundstage, mids, and overall natural tone, the Pro 900 is clearly a considerable amount of steps behind the D7000. It's not even a competition, really.

That being said, the Pro 900 is definitely the best basshead can I've heard, and the only closed alternative I see to the D7000 in terms of velour padded headphones. The Pro 900s are good in what they do, mainly bass, but they really show their faults when stacked up directly to the D7000.

I'll probably end up keeping the Pro 900s anyways, because I really need a bassy, velour padded headphone for when the D7000 gets too hot and sticky, which happens quite a lot.

Sell them and get an LCD2 to compare.

LCD2 = pleather/leather pads = no way, not ever. I well never ever get another headphone that doesn't use velour pads. In any case, that smooth treble on the LCD2, I KNOW would put me off. Also, I don't care for anything better than the D7000. They're borderline perfect for me, pads aside. I was mainly on the hunt for a velour padded, bassy alternative.

LCD-2 comes with velour pad option.  When someone says smooth treble, it's usually a good connotation, unless you deliberately like edgy and ringy treble that causes for sibilance.  I know you said you liked u-shaped headphones, and I thought I was the same way, but even after listening to the HD650 for a good while, I never found its treble lacking-- in fact I found it more brilliant and crisp than the D2000's treble.

I agree.

I still have both of them but PRO900s don't get much playing time anymore because I only break them out when I need a significant bass fix. 99% of them time, D7K do just fine all around.

MLE... you are oh-so-right.

I've often though of buying a spare D7000 just in case.

 

As for the LCD2. I honestly prefer the sound of the D7k... just a personal preference, of course. I also found the LCD2 uncomfortable.

Comfort is #1 to me, and anything less than comfortable than the D7000 won't cut it.
