Bassy headphones from $200 - $400

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 

I'm planning to get a pair of headphones that offer clear deep bass sound but also great mids and highs, I have no knowledge about headphones on the market, I'm so confused about the Beast Studio, Bose QC15, Ultrasone Pro 900, Pioneer HDJ-1000, Sony XB1000.

Which one fit me the most?

 

Another thing which I really concern is that comfortability, I have tried on the Beats Pro and it started to hurt my ears after 30 minutes using, I hate Beats pro on-ear headphones, it lays on my ears and press my ears tightly. Is there any pair of headphones that don't hurt ears when listening?

 

Thanks

I think XB1000 would fit you best if you can deal with its monstrous size. Comfort is topnotch though, like two pillows on your head. Accessoryjack.com sells them for $260 + $20 shipping. The bass probably goes deeper than any other headphones.

 I ordered the XB1000's from Accessory Jack over the weekend, can't wait to get them.

Meowis, do you have the 700's? If so can you compare the 1000's to them, or any other headphones you have. I hear conflicting things, some members say the 1000's have less bass than the 700's, and some say the 1,000's have more and deeper bass.

I think the XB-700 might have a little bit more bass unamped, but overall the XB-1000 is a better headphone and has better everything else.  If you can afford it, I'd go for the XB-1000, though it does cost quite a bit more than the XB-700.  Apparently the XB-500 has even more bass, but overall it's a bit muddier and doesn't sound as good.  Also, the XB-1000 looks pretty freaking awesome, if you ask me. :P

 Yes I did, but I didn't receive them yet, and I would still like to know how exactly they stack up bass wise to the XB700's.

You would be amazed at what the search function can do.

Already seen that, but like I said, some member are saying what he said, and some are saying the XB1000's have more bass and deeper bass. I was hoping someone could tell me the real deal, but I guess I'll have them in a few days anyway so it doesn't really matter.

How is xb1000 compared to Beats Pro? Which one has better bass quality but not overwhelming treble? Beside the bass, which one has better mids and highs?

Which one is more comfortable for long period listeners?
I have purchased the Beats Pro, it sounds great, its sound quality perfectly fits me, it has deep and warm bass sound, good mids and highs. However, i found Beats Pro very very uncomfortable, it hurt my ears after 15 use, the Beats doesn't worth what i paid for. They sound great but comfortability sucks then what's the point?

If you think the Beats sound great then you're really missing out.  The XB1000 would most likely beat it in every aspect, though you might need some amping to get the full bass out of them.

Since you've already ordered the XB-1000, stick with it. I have no idea if the bass is better for the 700, but what i know is that the bass for the 1000 is good enough. With a good amp and the sound EQ-ed so that the subwoofer has more volume, you won't want any other headphones.

We'll see, I currently have the Denon AH-D1100's which are not a slouch themselves in the bass department. I ordered the XB1000's and I bought some Darth Beyers off of a forum member. I'll probably only keep 1 of the 3 and sell the other 2 on the forum. I ordered the XB1000's from Accessory Jack over the weekend and they still haven't said they shipped them yet. Hopefully they already shipped them and didn't tell me. :(
