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....biggrin.gif  

The SZ2000 were worth a try. I didn't lose too much $$$ and now someone else can enjoy them. I guess in this hobby it's sometimes worth the risk of trying to find that one sound signature that makes you say, "that's it, that's the sound I've been searching for my whole life".

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.





sounds like my jvc's with bass boost on the e11 turned on with the volume at 5.5/8...

and then you keep finding new sound sigs that make you keep changing your mind. Trust me, you most definitely will. Just need to keep looking. Hawaii thought the 77's were perfect... Then the sz2000's came. Heck, maybe I'll end up liking my audiophile can more than my 55's... Who knows!

Exactly what I believe.  Denon/Fostex is that sound to me.

To me they are the closest I've ever found to that perfect sound, which is why my next purchase will the the TH900s

@iceman the 77's will give you some nice bass, but I have to recommend the fxz200 over the 77. How much bass are you looking for btw?

why are you recommending a pair of iem's that cost 67$ more than the 77's and won't thump your head, and with almost 100% certainty don't have as far reaching bass?... Seriously, I dislike iem's almost as much as I dislike Justin bieber... And that's a LOT. I have to recommend the 77's over any iem ever made... Heck, I have to recommend the 55's, akg k240's, HD 598's, etc (every good sounding can ever made) over iems. You just will not get the same experience. I will use big headphones over any iem... Even if the iem is many times the price of the cans.

Um...the dude that rec'd this low end digging eq ..we have been talking about ...has a singular point in common with me which I learned last Friday...we seek to destroy/distort cans.

 

Saying the 77's will give you some nice bass is really...c'mon....what?

 They will pound the **** out of your head very cleanly as ALL the reviews not just mine on this site have stated.  Audiophile?,,CLEARLY not. "V" shaped with a ridiculously impactful low end that will out punch the  Ultrasone Pro 900...yes. They are well vented 57mm hammers. some nice bass...??? :blink: O.K.

You must not have heard that many good IEMs, then. There's a lot of reasons to like IEMs. Even my RE-400 have extended bass past what's practical for use in music. It's pretty crazy to dismiss an entire type of headphone, almost as crazy as dismissing an entire genre of music. (Wait a minute, that's actually socially acceptable.)

The sz2000 is a J.V.C and they ..J.V.C seem to be creative on the bass delivery side. unfortunately they lack polishing. But...they price themselves right which is NOT the case with many cans.

My 77's are still well loved hammers. The sz are a basshead's lab kit. Dual chamber, dual ported (into your ear...most vent out the cup) , dual tubed carbon nano  coated driver low low end beasts. Same dark mid veiled signature though. I'm done searching and never changed my taste. Ultrasone etc...they never clicked with me. Now a Fostex th900 or DX1000 clicks...heck it thumps and rumbles. It similar to my sz but better mids.

 

There is a certain comfort to know what you want and finally find it.  My only errors were thinking I was missing out because others implied I was...no...I was right all along. Ya like what ya like. Assuming you've heard the rest.

Seinfeld is one of my favorite comedy shows, behind Frasier, my little pony: friendship is magic, and south park. And to decibel, yes I've heard buds that cost 200$, but they still don't have the same sq or the same soundstage (naturally) as a pair of over/on ears.

To put this nicely, discord if you are going to bash someone, know what the conversation is about, Otherwise please stay silent.
@ICEMAN I missed the around the same price part. I have an even better recommendation for you then. Same price as the 77 and waaaay more bass than the 77 and fxz200. The corecool v2

I think they are very different beasts. It's hard for IEM's to resonate through the cups and pads and vibrate your skull and neck. It's a sensation some folks like a lot. (raises hand:D)

I think you're both crazy for even debating IEM v.s. Over ears.(somebody must have a thread dedicated to that on Hi-fi)  Sound signatures aside...they are really different experiences. Apples v.s. Oranges.....IMO<<<<everything on this site is just opinion in the end no matter what a hoard of fanboys or charts say

O.K.

 

My Bad

 

I was wondering why tf folks were recommending IEM's I missed icemans post and saw ithe's post.  The 77's shouldn't be in the discussion for an IEM hunter...my bad for not scrolling back 2 pages.

 

Ignore me :(
