Oh yeah, the Momentums and V-Modas are complete different level but even the HD280pro sounds better...more balanced but not cheap and dead. I let them burning for a while just in case..but that cheap and  far away sound will never be for me. Never had a headphone sound like that..at least not from what I can recall. :)

So I was looking at a pair of "secondary" headphones with adequate amounts of bass to satiate the basshead within me. Was looking at the JVC SZ2000, any other cans that hit harder? Like the masses, I want both quality and quantity.

 

Already have a XB500 though

I meant look up mods for the harx700. Not mids. Lol. Sorry for the typo. And according to all of the people who have them, and from looking at specs and numbers, the sz2000's are one of the hardest hitting, if not the hardest hitting can you can buy. I haven't tried them, so ask hawaiibadboy or someone, plus you should try them out for yourself if you have access to big audio shops.

Sadly where I live, there is no shop that I know that allows you to try any decent headphones (apart from the Sony XB series and some beats). So I'll only have to take all of your word for it

Parents keep saying I'll buy them for you next week... Yeah... Right... From the sound of it, those cans you have have recessed treble, and elevated bass/mids. Am I correct? The JVC's I found have vocals and treble covered up by lower mids and bass. Once I eq'd them, they sounded pretty nice for bass/acoustic guitars. Took me about an hour to eq them correctly. The vocals just did not want to sound natural! I finally got it down though after some dragging of sliders... Hey Hawaii, do you know of any mods for the 55's? I can't find any on this forum and other sites.
no they were some cheap JVC Riptidze

 I gotta say this publicly bro.

 

You have had a bunch of people of various ranks. (we all know if you're a Supremus on Head-fi you're a Supremus in real life :rolleyes:)

Who have passively aggressively taken shots at you. Your young and your just getting into Audio. Folks on here think they are some kinda awesome because they can afford expensive cans. They are ********. I am an ******* sometimes. You just keep trucking. You never get bent out of shape you never attack folks. You got a lot more going for you than a lot of folks on here and I don't give a **** what cans they own.

You keep liking what you like and don't get swayed. You have stuck to the 55's like bulldogs on a bone and MADE them what you want them to be instead of giving up after a few hours and selling/returning them. THAT is ******* impressive. When you do start rolling in the cash don't ever stop that. Your already a lot more of a man than a lot of adults on here and more of an audiophile too. Anyone with money can buy cans but not anybody with money can take something and bend it by will into their sonic shape of desire. You're a basshead and an audiophile.

 

I apologize for taking pot shots at the 55's. I never gave them the time that would give me the right to do that. You have. You know more about what the 55's can do than most anyone...maybe everyone. 

 

 

The guy asking about sz

1. Hardest hitting deepest dropping cans on the available mass produced consumer market. Closest 2nd is Pro 900 by Ultrasone but they are very expensive and don't hit quite as hard or go as low. Everything recommended from this site paled in Hip Hop play back. Unless their is a secret society storing away a hidden bass beast these are the top of Mt Bass.

 

2. If Hip Hop is a big part (80% or more) of your listening library you want these if that is not your library make-up skip these. One guy is listening to classic on these after cup change and burn-in but he says the Th600 have a better mid/high section at this point and I believe him. 

 

3. If you don't plan on turning the bass up to head rattling neck vibrating levels there is no real point in getting these. Massive low freq boost interrupts delivery of early mids. That's it. You cannot have your cake and eat it too...not if you want the physical effects. Those effects will inhibit your ability to distinguish the early mids even if the driver is accurately articulating them. So #3 is really about an amp and you like to use it a lot. These will not distort before your ears do. That sounds fun to a lot but really appeals to fewer than a lot. I recommend these for Hip Hop listening bass junkies.

 

These are your dream come true or not. If you have any doubt then the answer is not...for sure. Get some Denons or Fostex or something else

I'm sorry for jumping on your cans bro. I heard and amped them briefly. I don't have the experience with them to speak with authority. I amped them to distortion. That's my ****ed up first stage of evaluating but it's pretty limited an angle to diss on anyones stuff. If your happy ...man...**** everyone and **** me too. I hate haters so being one is repulsive. Please accept my apologies. Get an amp soon. Your current happiness will be amplified :D

I'm sorry everyone too for coming across as a biased, one track minded fool. I was focused on a single pair of cans, but don't think that I am a fanboy who thinks JVC is the best company ever. I don't. There are many companies, and many different musical tastes. I probably will try a pair of jbl's sometime down the road. Probably when I get that cash flow going later in life, and I'll probably buy sennheiser, akg, etc when I have the money, but for now, I've tried beats, Bose, sol republic, JVC, lower end sennheisers, Sony, apple buds, skull candy, Phillips, and a few brands no one has heard of. So far out of that list, JVC gives you better quality for 50$ than any of the other brands I've heard. Just my gathered knowledge from a year of trying different headphones and trying to find the best quality product in low end cans, while doing comparisons to medium priced ones from famous brands. In a few years, I'll get into high end equipment. If you need a budget can in the range of 30-140$, ask me and I'll tell you the best for what you want from the headphones, and I won't always recommend JVC's.

It's fine. I get like that sometimes too. I try to push my opininion people when I don't know what the **** I'm talking about. Everyone has different musical taste. If it sounds good to you then stick with them. I know these cans aren't best out there, but they are good for me sense I don't have an amp. Sense I got these I will be able to get an amp. Getting a job this summer, so maybe the amp will change my opinion about the headphones.

Had a small comparison today between DT770 80 Ohm and Ultrasone Pro 900 - if somebody claims, that the Beyers have no mids, than he obviously didn't hear the Ultrasones ;) Hard hitting midbass... and that's all. No mids, not that much subbass (DT770 has waaay more) and sharp highs. Maybe they're good for electronica, but for other genres these are awful.

post #10286 of 11259

i hate headphones with no mids :mad:

post #10287 of 11259

Okay, I'm sending also the SRH1540 back. Why? I have odd ears and I hear some annoying sharpness in the upper mids on some albums. Probably going back to DT770 as I feel somehow drown to them ;)

Also from all the basshead phones I heared lately (SRH1540, HD8 DJ, Fidelio L1, Pro900, D600, Signature DJ) they have the best balance and really good/strong subbass properly EQed.

 

Are there any other headphones I should look at? Probably Q40, but they're not that easy to get in Europe anymore (had to cancel my order once).

Another reason I got rid of them is that I had them for less than a month and the material on the cups were cracking, also the cored had a loose connection not even a week after I bought them.
post #10289 of 11259
Wait, since when were the SRH1540 Bass head cans? I heard they were typical Shure mid focused fare.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm on my laptop so I don't have the photos of me working with Skrillex.. Now would have been a good time to post them.

Instead, here is Dizzee Rascal performing:

 

 

 

and a sound/line check for Avicii:

 

 

 

The Offspring:

 

 

If you haven't heard music from "Shlohmo", you're missing out! Not for everyone, but definitely for me.
