Im looking for big, feel-able bass (I assume this is where the xb1000 will shine). I listen to a lot of bass heavy genres; especially in the electronic dance music spectrum. However, more bass is only good if it doesnt sacrifice too much of the rest of the sound. That being said, Im looking for a solid pair of fullsize headphones that have a lot of bass. I currently own a pair of AKG k518s, which have great bass for their size, but Im ready for more.
I realize my matchup is a bit random; I will be doing some DJing and mixing as well so it would be cool if the headphones could serve that purpose too (obviously XBs cannot). If they cant, its not the end of the world
Also, how does the BD 880 compare? I just threw it in there because they seem to be decently affordable when used.
People keep saying how ridiculously wide and engulfing the soundstage and sound is on the XB1000, should I just wait till they are released here, consider them my go to bassphones, and move on to finding a pair to DJ with?
Thanks for taking the time to help guys!
