Drum & Bass/Dance is my favorite (sry)

 

 

Dubstep, IMO just overrated

It already in mainstream and advertising commercials

I used to listen to it often, not as much anymore

 

 

 

DT990 600ohms/E9+E7

Perfectly happy

 

 




Very nice set up. I too am a fan of D&B. I like alot of the chilled stuff.(liquid). How do you think the DT990s do with sub bass?

Real audiophiles don't listen to dubstep through headphones, they listen to it through a speaker setup with nice subwoofers. Even the bassiest headphones can't compete with subwoofers when it comes to bass-heavy electronic music.

 

That said, you might want to check out the Sony XB1000.

I wonder what it'd be like to listen to dubstep on the HD800... LCD-2, Stax?

never heard the HD800, but dubstep is fun on my HD650's with my HeadRoom desktop amp. there is plenty of bass.

LCD was nice when I had an hour with them the other day, nowhere as deep and heavy as the Pro 900s, but really nice in quality.

The Ultrasone HFI2400 offers big surround soundstage and shows good details in muisc with deep punchy bass(highely recommended). The Matrix M Stage, Matrix Quattro and E7+E9 willbe better pick for these headphones.

you obviously haven't heard the ultrasone pro 900's

LCD-2 shouldn't be mentioned in a thread about dubstep imo. Bass is accurate but nowhere near "subwoofer in my head" level.

Ultrasone Pro 900 and Sony XB1000 are apparently contenders. Cant wait to try the XB1000.

umm... I have actually. But this isn't my opinion about which headphone is bassier though, it's a matter of physics. It's impossible for headphones to reproduce subbass frequencies the same way subwoofers do.

One would think listening to dub step would be a physical experience on a good stereo system. Very deep bass is more felt than heard - pants flapping, chest thumping and all that. With something like 2 JL fathom f110s and unlimited dynamics it should be very dramatic. However, surprisingly, it is not as impressive as some rap or pipe organ music. I suspect most of the bass in dub step don't go much below 40 hz.

i have felt various headphones rumble on my head so much i thought they would fall off, you should really stop buying that sony crap and try some real headphones.

There are plenty of songs that go below even 20Hz, dubstep is a genre that is based on well bass!

You'd be surprised. Maybe not brostep. But plenty of dubstep songs do.

But it doesn't give you that chest-punching feeling. Listening to dubstep on full-sized speakers is way better than on headphones.

What concerns me is that the surround sound option on my laptop increase the bass limit to about 43Hz.
With surround sound, I can go as low as 18-20Hz, below that all there is is a soft hum, which I suspect is 

noise in the recording.
