Good songs to test bass on headphones? - Page 17

post #241 of 245

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 




Sunflower - Von D 

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

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
