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.

 

 

Cool!!

I thought his eq post was one of the finer posts I have ever seen here. Being a basshead thread.. If we could "sticky" posts that eq one would be 1st in line imo.

@PocketSmiley ......good stuff bro!!! very very good stuff for everyone to enjoy.  love that red ski jump slope..(without the jump):beerchug:

I always wondered how the Digizoid 2.1 (best version by accounts) would pair with LCD-2's. You'd get the expanded soundstage instantly. I know it is a DSP unit and some people poo-poo it instantly......but to take the bass and sub-bass deeper again would be crazy....coupled with bigger soundstage and instrument separation it would be a nice "toy" to mess around with in an Audeze LCD 2.x chain....

That's a "Cannon"

Fits the definition perfectly.

 

I like to know my "headroom" with bass. How low and loud can I go. I wasn't trying to distort as much as trying to get low end so deep and loud I had to take off the cans because they are insane. Realized that is a very very small group even among "bass" cans. That is a "stupid" level of low end cliff diving but now you know you can go there anytime you want. Lotta folks can't.

For the price you paid it's nice to know you confirmed another dimension to those cans. I have little to no experience with planar drivers. Nice to know they hit so hard it feels like your gonna break the ******* things:D

 

Good times!!

 

 

Bass....

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?

Did you try the Denon AH-D7100? They are blamed a lot for having toooo much bass... but the bass is one reasons why I like them. And their bass definitely doesn't negatively effect their great detail & clarity... since you like the TH600 but seem to look for some additional bass, the Denons could be a perfect match for you.

I've heard rumors that some models of the AH-D7100 are screwed up off the production line and it leaves the bass big and messy. I hope that's the case because the pair I sampled defines the term "bloated".

 

Side note: I would not call the Pandora Hope VI "basshead" headphones. Bassy? Yes. Basshead? Not at all.

I'm not going to buy these without trying it out. I'll at least get to try out the TH900 at the Sydney meet

I took a massive gamble on the Pandoras. I'm way glad I did, but it was a HUGE risk dropping that much cash on a headphone without hearing them first. 

 

The TH900 was the other one on my list. I've heard those are nearly the ultimate closed-back.

post #10450 of 11259

Guys I am looking for a can within 150 bucks. Currently I use a V55, I love it's SQ, but two problems, it's uncomfortable and it leaks too much sound. What do you guys suggest? The good old M50 or anything else? Asking this in this topic naturally means I am huge bass lover, sub-bass that is. Will be used with my PC, with Asus DGX, for gaming, and with my Bravia, with FiiO E11, for movies.

 

TIA.

And a TH900 is roughly 3 times what I paid for my TH600s

LOL also true. Most of what I've read is that the TH600 are the better "purchase", but if you have the money for the TH900 go for it.

M-Audio Q40 fits that bill in that price range.

M-Audio is not available in my country. My choice is limited within AT, Beyerdynamic, Sony, Senn, JVC and those mainline kinds.
