Thanks, I'll see if they can get/ship the JVC cans instead.

Will be used with my PC, with Asus DGX, for gaming, and with my Bravia, with FiiO E11, for movies.

TIA.
If you're looking for subbass then you might as well just close your eyes and get the Beyer dt770 (80ohm).

On a side note: damn this thread is active. I can't keep up biggrin.gif you guys talk too much

i prescribe a healthy 3-6 dB boost in the 80 Hz area with a nice equalizer - and its free!

I recommend the JBL J55 or J88. Without an amp they deliver nicely. Haven't tried them with an amp. Great bass with great sound quality. Can't be beat for the price, but I know other people on this forum will contest my opinion.

Thanks mate. I was looking at the OP, and I did a crazy thing, looked at all the headphone (basshead ones) and then saw their details and coincidentally Beyer DT770 was my choice too :D But I don't understand that there are three different versions, 80 ohm, 250 ohm and those kinds. I don't know what are the differences to be honest.

Okay bro, will give a look at them as well.

 

For the Beyer DT770, do you guys think I am safe to buy this one? I mean it's almost 40 bucks (₹ 2500) lower than what I have been asked in my country from official Beyer outlet.

I am kinda scared cause it says 'manufacturer refurbished'! Should I look for a brand new one?

M-Audio Q40, definitely. Should be first in your shortlist of cans as it has one of the best price-to-performance ratios I know about. PM me if you want a great deal on a padless chordless pair - you'll end up replacing the pads and cable from the stock set anyways. Don't want to post it here as its an ebay link.

hehehe... You know that's true! I can guarantee my JVC ha-m55x's will deliver better than the jbl's could with an e11! And the 55's with an e11 comes out to 100-110$. I'm going to buy those q40's and do a comparison between them and the k240's. I think the k240's will deliver better soundstage, sq, comfort, and build, and the q40's will probably deliver some thump... Don't know if the thump could beat 55's though.. Kind of unlikely that they would.

Good luck with that comparison. I'll go out on a limb and say I bet both will impress you in different ways, unless the Q40 does a hawaiibadboy on you.

Thanks for your generosity mate, but I am not really interested in M-Audio.

look at the JVC ha-mr77x. You will not find a can with this amount of thump at 100$. The second choice for 300$ is sz1000. Or for 500$ the sz2000. All three are made by JVC, and you will not find any can that can massage you more than these three. The ha-mr77x's have 57mm drivers, the sz1000/2000 both have 55mm bass drivers, and a 30mm mids/treble driver.

Hmm, in that case you're on the right track with the DT770. It's regarded fairly highly in this thread. If you do purchase a refurbished DT770, make sure you pay special attention to the pictures the seller provides and if you're even a little unsure about something, ask the seller and don't buy it if you smell something fishy. Paying $30 extra is imo better than wasting time due to getting scammed on ebay, although they do have really good buyer protection policies so you'll probably be alright if it is a fake.

The main difference between the versions of the DT770 is their impedance, which is a quick way to see how efficient a headphone is. For dynamic drivers, the higher the ohms, generally, the harder it will be to drive. 32Ω is pretty much the standard for portable, efficient headphones. If you're not planning on getting an amp, get the DT770 32Ω, but if you are planning on getting a headphone amp, I would recommend the DT770 Pro, which is 250Ω. There are slight sound differences between each version due to their impedance, which is explained here.

Umm, I don't remember the exact model number, but I have used a JVC with that 'XX' tagged on it before, while the whole sound quality was really nice, I was thumped by the bass! My Sony XB days are over I think, I will always be a huge bass fan (sub-bass, again) but I think that skull crashing thump is not my thing any more.

Hmm. I have put an eBay link in my previous post, if anyone have bought from them I would love to have some opinion.

Oh okay, got it. But I have an amp, a FiiO E11, which I use with my TV and Laptop, and for desktop, it has a Asus DGX installed.

 

So I think I am making the move for the DT770. Just to confirm, it's sub-bass based right? Cause from the OP of this topic, I bought Shure SE215 last year, and it was literally the worst IEM I have ever used, then I found out it's main focus is on mid-bass or something! I am not an audiophile, so I do get confused with these terms, sorry :p
