WORST headphone you ever heard? - Page 93

However, they cannot gave me the feelings that I had about music when I was young. Michael Jackson still sounds good but I miss the one I was crazy about tens of years ago. And equally so, I miss my $1 ear-buds.
I figured out this sound quality thing this past year(I'm 15), and I am making electronic music, but my favorite music group by far is Fleetwood Mac... Their music is absolutely beautiful. My top ten favorite music groups are a mix of edm, 70-80's pop/rock, and jazz (Kenny g, Glenn miller.)but to my point. I just try not thinking about the music, and just close my eyes and relax. Edm and rock is more what I listen to on the bus and elsewhere. At home, its all just jazz, orchestra, and 70's-80's pop, with a bit of jazzy Japanese pop music thrown in... Try it sometime. Just sit back, close your eyes to some relaxing chill out music(a lot of songs by the eagles, Kenny g, Fleetwood mac, jimmy buffet, etc are good for this.). You will find your mind just drifting around with the music. Such a nice feeling. I couldn't do this before I had nice cans. The sound was just too edgy. Brought me out of that trance like state of happiness... I used to be a video game junkie sort of person... Now all my free time (6-10 hours on weekdays. All day on weekends.)that was spent on videogames is spent with my cans... The ps3 just doesn't seem as appealing as my akg k240's anymore... I now learned that price doesn't mean better. I spent 1000$+ on computer/ps3/ps2 games, but then I buy some ear buds... Meh. Didn't really like it that much. Bought some Sony 20$ cans... A big improvement, but still meh. Bought a pair of jvc ha-m55x's. Those got me deep into the electronic music world. Decided I wanted another pair. Akg k240's... Wow. I just got sucked back into the other genres I listened to before. Sound quality and signature imo really determines what music you enjoy and listen to. Just a subconscious thing. One genre sounds better than another on a certain pair, so therefore you are most likely to listen to that certain genre. Humans will always look to optimize their joy. For me, I've found great joy, and its not from spending 1000$ more on a new gaming computer, but spending 140$ on a pair of cans...

Sound quality doesn't matter; it's the emotions involved in listening to the music itself that counts...

 

 

 

 

...unless you're using Beats

Indeed! No one would ever wish to use an ultra high end rig and listen to a song that they do not wish to ~

Ha ha ... I'm glad I never used beats and I don't think I will ever use them in the future :)

they're ok... If you enjoy expensive fashion objects that thump a little, but seriously, an experienced basshead will want to avoid them. Not enough low end thump to them for type 3 bassheads, and not enough detail for type 1 bassheads. They fit type two bassheads, but they are far from the best in that category.(type one= cans that have 4-8 db bass boost with detail. Basically just an audiophile that likes warmer cans. Type 2= bassheads that enjoy feeling a little thump in the low end, while retaining most of the sound quality. Type 3= pounding the **** out of your head with crazy headphones with powerful amps.

Yep ... I tried one beats in best-buy and I was not impressed at all. I think if I were a basshead, I would reach for beyer dt770 for the same price range.

nope. The best type 3 basshead cans are JVC's. Ha-mr77x, sz1000, and sz2000. Type 2... Almost unlimited choices. Same with type 1.

Well obviously everyone has their own personal preferences. Maybe they just like the DT770 better?

post #1389 of 1513

Type 3 as in the worst sounding bass can's right?

 

because JVC are as bloated as a person after eating mexican food.

They actually hurt my ears, put them down after like 10 seconds.

that's a type two basshead can. Plus general, go look up jvc dx1000 and read reviews. Those aren't bloated like the others... Plus I don't like the word bloated when describing bass. I use different terms. If sub bass is boosted, it sounds foggy. if mid/uppper bass is boosted, I call it punchy.

I'm pretty sure punchy is used to describe the quality/feel/impact of the bass, not how much it's boosted.


I have no idea about the types of bassheads either, is this new?

Punchy refers to things like Grados, which are no where near boosted.
And I have never heard of the types of bassheads.

Well, one of the people on the basshead club posted three types. #1 detailed nice bass. 4-8 db bass boost. #2 slight to moderate thump, while still retaining some sound quality. #3 pounding the **** out of your head. I only know a few type 3's. Mainly type 2 and 1 bassheads.

I meant punchy as in the bass punches you. You can feel it at moderately high volumes, and it just feels... Punchier to me. All my opinion.
