Good songs to test bass on headphones? - Page 17

post #241 of 247

It's not hip hop but one song I'd recommend if from Queen, Gimme the Prize. It's from the Highlander soundtrack and is one of their heaviest songs, I love it. Hardly needs to be mentioned that Freddie completely slays the vocal as well. Of course the more well known Princes of the Universe is a lot of fun for bass.

 

Alicia Keys' song No One has a surprisingly deep bass beat throughout, it's a nice one also.

Las - Maltfunktion

Pretty sick sub-bass, especially with XBs. :D 

 

Also, 

 

Sunflower - Von D 

This one "cleaner" with a lot going on besides sub-bass to mid-bass.

Ludacris - How Low. Portapros can't play the lowest notes at all blink.gif


wow, this really does cause some serious vibrations after bumping 32Hz just for fun... The drivers are literally jumping on my ears. :D

Apologies for reviving such an old thread, but I was searching for "bass" as a search term in the topic names. Stumbling upon this one, I had no choice but to comment, since I am a huge hardstyle fan, and the style itself is renowned for having a very tasty, tight, pumping bassline:

 

 

This one is amongst the all-time anthems of hardstyle, and for a good reason. Love the atmosphere and the vibe!

Hah, great thread!

 

A few other good ones:

 

- Lower State of Consciousness (Justice Remix) by ZZT: Just sheer explosion of bass at various frequencies

 

- Limit to your love by James Blake:  my HD598 can't control the low bass part whereas my HD700 handle it beautifully

 

- En direct de la côte (Alavi revox) by Tepr: Needs low bass extension and great attack/speed

Great stuff, never heard it before, thanks!

Here’s my list, featuring mostly electronic music. I don’t have a sub woofer that can play any of these very well, but I do own a pair of Sony XB500’s which are perfectly capable of playing sub-frequencies. They are pretty much sub woofers strapped to a headband and I would recommend them to any bass heads out there (if you can find a pair!). You can find all of these tracks in good quality on Youtube.

 

1. Tipper – Odd from Every Angle

Too many to choose from this artist, but here’s one of my favorites

2. J Majik – Your Sound (~1:30 onward)

3. Claude Vonstroke - Urban Animal

4. Seba – Winter Mix 2009

Loads of bass in this mix. There is a song about 21 minutes into the mix (Lenzman) that has a really neat reverberating effect added to the bass.

5. Mistabishi – From Memory (not the Matrix remix)

              I didn’t even notice the sub-bass in this song until I used the Sony headphones (starting about 1:18 into the song).

6. Evac – Edit

7. A Perfect Circle – Lullaby

This isn't electronic music (or really music at all!) but I figured I would include it anyways. Really deep, cinematic-like bass throughout
