Does anyone know if the Xbox One stereo adapter works with standard headphones

No, the xs will not be basshead cans. They are a refreshed m80 which isn't known for being bassy.

Maybe i just get too into the music xD
I had it happen when I'm sitting behind percussion in band, and they smack the timpani or bass drum... And when I was messing around with my stereo system at home to see how much they shake... The speakers are fun to watch move back and forth.

Looks quite interesting, never seen/heard about these yet. Doesn't look like they'd be basshead material but maybe gently boosted bass.

Am I still a bass head? I couldn't keep the SZ2000, the signature was not to my liking, even though I tried to like it a lot. I do love my TH600s and so much so my next cans will be the TH900s or something along those lines. I wouldn't mind the clarity and detail in all frequency ranges and depth reaching bass like the SZ2000 without affecting any of the mids. Any cans like that?

...Get out.

 

Just kidding, of course you're a basshead! We all have varying levels of love for the low-end.

I listened to them today. I liked them more than the Momentums (that I also finally heard today). Other than that IDK, they're okay I suppose. Also, I was at an expo, so the surrounding noise is also to be taken in to account.

http://www.eminent-tech.com/rwbrochure.htm hmm... Interesting tech. Wonder how much these would shake a person?

Darn free shipping... Going to take 9-12 days to get my k240's!

I've heard that they have amazing bass.

Ive been back and forth on  deciding on buying these:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005I4L6NI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1U6CYEFKSZDNE

Im looking for a decent bass for an IEM thats around the same price. Is this IEM good enuf? Maybe i just need an approval or recommendation from the bassheads.

You said it sounded like 18" Subwoofers strapped to your head. God bless you!

 

The Pro 900 will not respond to my super slope so they can slam you and deliver low to mid transition very well. 

 

Enormous amounts of Bass are gonna interrupt the delivery of the early mids. Even if the driver is able to articulate them you will not be able to discern them. Your head is shaking and the cups are farting air down your neck...it's not the best way to listen to mids..and anything else.

 

I said you need 80% Hip Hop library

an amp

and a desire to push your eardrums to the limit with the amp.

 

 

You were warned. gelocks ..his review shoulda been a warning and mine shoulda too. They are bass cannons. I'm finally getting around to listening to Earth Wind and Fire with a raised mid eq. They play just fine. 

 

So yeah...for impact and mids the Pro 900 will put you there and not allow you to cross insanity bridge.  I liked em a lot the 2nd time around but I like my cup farts on my neck where the jaw line and ear meet. I'm an extremeophile. 

 

Did you watch the vid...

 

Your bass papers....:D

Really good advice from PocketSmiley about using an EQ on a PC (Click to show)

Foobar's built-in EQ is very limited. A parametric equalizer would give you the most freedom. If you're already using Windows (Vista, 7, or 8/8.1), you should get Equalizer APO. Here is a head-fi thread dedicated to it. Basically, Equalizer APO allows detailed control of the built-in Windows sound modules, so it only installs the controller (no GUI) and you set the settings in the file "config.txt" under "C:\Program Files\EqualizerAPO\config". Any changes you make in config.txt affects the sound in real-time. You can read the head-fi thread for very quick tutorials, but I promise that it only looks complex at first. Inside my config.txt is this:

 

Filter 1: ON PEQ Fc 25,0 Hz Gain 15,0 dB Q 1,000
Filter 2: ON PEQ Fc 3000,0 Hz Gain 5,0 dB Q 1,000

 

Red is the center frequency in Hz (comma means decimal), blue is the level, and green is the width of the curve (when using "Q", 0 is the widest, and affects the entire spectrum, while 10 limits the boost to just the center frequency). Filter 1 boosts the bass at 25Hz, which is my preferred depth (you can experiment on your preference). Filter 2 compensates for the recessed midrange of the HA-MR77X.

 

 

Some head-fiers made a GUI for it, most used is jiiteepee's FPEQGUI-10MC, head-fi thread here. Using the GUI, Filter 1 above looks like this:

 

 

If you want to try the built-in Bass Boost in Windows (your sound card driver may or may not support this), try the following:

 

deT3KED.gif

 

The 50Hz bass boost won't sound good on the "Rah" track though, since the bass is already boosted in that song (which is why it's a great basshead test). Combining the 50Hz bass boost with Equalizer APO turns most songs (with bass kicks) into basshead tracks. Imagine that deep thud from Rah going 300 beats per minute in a death metal song (try this).

 

I still need to experiment more. The effect of the Windows built-in bass boost can be simulated in Equalizer APO by using the following settings:

 

Preamp: -18 dB

Filter 1: ON PEQ Fc 25,0 Hz Gain 15,0 dB Q 1,000

Filter 2: ON PEQ Fc 50,0 Hz Gain 18,0 dB Q 1,000
Filter 3: ON PEQ Fc 3000,0 Hz Gain 5,0 dB Q 1,000

 

See how straightforward it is to bump a certain frequency? I still think the above can be simplified further.

 

I'll try to get JetAudio for PC again as I haven't used it in a while. I already forgot how the X-Bass effect sounded like.

 

This PC setup is actually based on my Android setup, which uses JetAudio for Android and the built-in DSP Manager for Cyanogenmod 10.

 

 

Thanks for this - 

 

I'm going to try it with my LCD 2.2 tonight. I've never really given them a good bass-thumping, I'm interested to see just how well they respond..

 

..Or if they will splutter and die when pushed.

First impressions: This software is very, very good. APO with the interface is a godsend, not just for bassheads, but for anyone wanting to tweak and tune. I might use this for IEM reviews and comparisons, thanks for the heads up.

 

I tried a few basic bassy EQ curves with a few different headphones, and the results were good - the interface will do its best to avoid clipping if you get a little too excited, which is a good sign.

 

Then tried something a little more extreme, and tried a ridiculous curve with the LCD 2.2 (the red line is the one to look at):

 

 

I drove them with my Mini-i PRO DSD DAC/amp:

 

 

Absolutely ridiculous. Vibrating the living crap out of my skull. I don't want to damage the drivers, so I won't leave them slamming on my head all night. The LCD completely vibrates when you drive them hard enough.

 

The interface can often click and pop when you're adjusting it on-the-fly, so be careful, and turn it down when making adjustments.

 

When using additive EQ, as expected, some pretty heavy compression going on. 

 

TL;DR: Having this next to your ear, with absolutely stupid EQ curves, causes your entire head and face to rumble. Absolute gobs of bass, they refused to quit, and didn't distort.
