Geezus

post #10067 of 11259

So I dove in and bought a bassheads IEM dream today:

 

Unique Melody Merlin.

 

Four BA drivers, one dynamic bass driver, in a custom IEM enclosure. 

 

Will be a few weeks before it all goes through, but looking forward to it!

The Bass is ridiculous. For the price it should be in everybody's collection. IMO

If you got eq skillz they could be used in the mids. :D

 

Fostex....that's a brand and the TH's are legends. These are not in that league. 

 

I'm a fanboy but not a fool.

 

I'm a basshead to the core though and these shook me. I stopped shopping for basshead cans when I found these. When I step up to audiophile grade it will be with what you and Oregonian got in the TH series

It's like I've taped 18 inch subs to my head

Bro...I'm so ******* happy!. People recommend cans all the time but personal tastes about "staging" and such make for many returns or items on the for sale thread. Opinions are good and bad.

 

These are simple head slammers....your ear may be humming now. It's not really an opinion ...your head feels like it's getting walloped. The driver shouldn't distort before your ears do. These cans do that well...better than any i have ever heard. Kind of unreal. The changing of the pads is a big improvement for me too.

 

You already got the Fostex for your high end listening.....those are the cans I want in the future actually. These are well made $220 head thumpers. I never smiled so many times in my life with headphones. These bring out the kid in me.

 

I'm glad you are enjoying them.

Well I just pulled the trigger on the Denon C300's. Let's see if they do actually have as much bass as an XB500. I hope they live up to the hype L3000.gif

Don't worry, they do!

... I want those sz2000 now. On a different note: Can the V-Moda LP's take a ton of power? When do they start to distort? From what I'm reading, amps similar in power the the E11 won't distort sound, but nothing was said about the really powerful mobile amps. Does anyone have crossfade LP's?

I love my Merlins, but I wouldn't call them exactly basshead IEMs. They have well extended and controlled bass, but entry basshead level in quantity. On the other hand there are the mids and treble  - well, that's another story (superb!).

That is absolutely insane...! Wonder if work would mind haha

On a side note, I think I'm long overdue to join here.

Current:

V-moda m-100s (just received)
Sony ex1000's
Modded grado sr-60i's
Mtpg's

Lost:
Jvc fx-700
Jvc fxz-200

Past:
Denon d7000
Ultrasone pro 900
New 2013 studio beats


Looking for some time to A/B compare the ex1000's to the m100s... those sonys are amazing

That's a little worrying, as every single review I have read has said otherwise. 

 

At least seven of the main reviews I have read contain the word "basshead".

 

Sigh, that's a real shame. I really do hate shopping for customs, as you can't demo anything.

Your source will distort the cans long before your amp will.

 

If you're using full-size cans, an amp shouldn't distort them, period.

lol. By not distort them period, do you mean never get loud enough to distort sound?... Because I beg to differ. Try an amp on beats, Sony 20$ cheap crap things, and plenty of others. They all distort from an amp.

I've never heard any headphone who would distort sooner than what I'd feel comfortable to listen with in first place. If you listen to safe volume levels they won't distort and I have no interest in damaging my hearing.
