Heres a list of basshead headphones, the idea of these lists was suggested by SoulSyde.

------> An updated version made by Malevolent with a full price list can be found here. <------

Note: Not all of these headphones are worth their retail price, for example, the Beats Pro are generally thought of as $150 - $200 cans

Note2: Not all headphones have the same amount of bass emphasise, it is recommended that you use measurements, reviews and listening to determine whether a headphone has enough bass for you

You could probably count me in. Blame the LCD-2's delicious bass texture.

post #3 of 11204

Count me in!

 

The best bass combo that I've heard so far is an Ultrasone HFI-580 and a Cowon player. It has all the bass I'd ever want, but I wonder how a ZO would sound like in a home rig.

post #4 of 11204

im in, Cowon J3 with Hippo VB (planning on getting the IE8)

 

can't stand bright headphones

Agree with you on that darthsmile.gif dark and bassy is how I like it basshead.gif

 

post #6 of 11204

Definitely in.

 

Head-fi needs a Group thingie... fo srs. 

 

My basshead cans are Senns HD438. Modded, dampened, friggin amazing for dub. 

post #7 of 11204

lol, how cool would it be if there was a profile picture that says we're this group, like a gang tattoo......

 

....just being immature....

post #8 of 11204

I think I'm a basshead (a moderate one) confused.gif

I sold all my bass light cans such as: Beyer T5p, AKG K701 & K702 & K501 & K271, Audio Technica AD1000 & A2000x.

I recently sold my Ultrasone pro750 because it sounds funny to my ears, but I do acknowledge its bass.

Right now I have the following that I would consider headphones with very good bass: Edition 8, JVC DX1000, Grado GS1000i, Grado RS1 with flat pads. All 4 completely different flavors of bass.

Interesting idea, something like putting the picture of a subwoofer driver in the corner of every basshead's profile picture would be epic.

Or better yet, a custom title underneath our usernames.

 

Basshead Certified or Team Basshead, etc.

Something like BASSHEADUS SUPREMUS would be cool as well beerchug.gif

post #12 of 11204

That idea is actually brilliant. I'll put a mini treble clef at the corner of my dp someday. bigsmile_face.gif Reminded me of gamers with clan tags.

It's done. Personally I like the name basshead club better than my original title. I'll work on an official club symbol or something like that when I'm free basshead.gif
