Personal tastes are just that...personal. One mans garbage is another man's gem. Bloated bass....
What tracks? What settings?<<<<<<Even with that info it still comes down to tastes. 

I will never do or not do something based on one of your opinions. I will weigh it with others and if possible try it myself. Bloated, Bleeding, Booming, Subdued.....these are words. The meaning depends on the speaker. That matching the listener is a possibility at best but not a given.

I know you both as posters and respect you both.

I'm just saying in general. Nothing beats the ear test. Your own ears.
good man. I actually quite enjoy the bass boost on the e11.

I make my own gifs in GIMP by hand, frame by frame.

OK.

I was just quoting the 3rd parties website based on people saying these DAC/AMPs have great bass extension as some hardware restricts the lower end.

I know buddy :)

 

Just wanted to make sure you didn't spend lots of money on something for the wrong reasons! 

 

You're a good guy.

 

If anything will restrict the lower end, it will be output impedance (for a start)

Im on the market buying an amp for my computer. Im looking at schiit stack (magni & modi). I just noticed why are desktop amps doest have bass boost like portable ones? I like my Fiio e12 bass boost does to my music. Are there any Amp/dac for computers that have the same feature?

400's are said to be more on the neutral side (haven't heard them myself, so YMMV). "Light bassheads" on a budget should take a look at the 500's (I've mentioned them before, I'll keep mentioning them forever when it comes to portable bass on a budget :D )

(JVC HA-s500 with ESW9a pads, yeah I know.... Pads cost 1.5x what the HP's do :biggrin: )

Just add quality and the perfect amount of quantity will be found lol.


I used to be type 3, the very worst kind with like 25-30dB of total boost for many years ago, these days I'm more the type 2 like you. ^^ I'd estimate around 14-15dB worth of bass boost is right for me now. Generally no headphone tend to satisfy my bass needs without the digiZoid ZO amp yet. I like to feel the thump still so but these days I just barely feel it compared to back in the days when it was like listening to subs strapped to your face giving the brain a massage. So yea before I only cared for the bass, these days I want both good overall quality and big bass, it would be impossible to get good overall quality with 25-30dB of bass lol. So I'm on the search for the ideal bass quantity vs quality ratio resides. M-Audio Q40 with digiZoid ZO2.1 set to yellow sounds just about right to me now.

+1.

 

I think it comes with time.

I think this thread is unique on the site.

Everyone knows they are a fanboy of something to a certain degree and nobody holds grudges. Sometimes a person from another sect bombs in with a "_______LOL"  or something stupid but besides that this is by far the realest thread on Hi-Fi.

 

My **** stinks just like everybody else's does and nobody gets to ruffled when we remind each other.

I love my s500's! Though im still kind of sad that they lost some bass as they burned in. At the beginning they were packing some serious bass, but now I'd say there're only slightly boosted. The s500's are an excellent portable for under $50, they can really take a beating. I take mine running every day..smily_headphones1.gif

I don't know about the S500's, I never heard them. But I can certainly say that the S400's have a BIG bump in bass, like 7-8 dB. And they don't really sound good on normal recordings, only on hot ones, because their 500 and 1000Hz range is super emphasized. 

 

But keep in mind, I didn't fully burn in my pair, so they might be a lot better after burn in.

Oh, are they much bassier now? :) And yes that should increase bass but the question is how much? Would you call them basshead cans now or still too little? If still too little then you'd need also a hole in that middle sticker, completely removing it would be way too big hole though. A hole of say ~1.5 mm in diameter would probably increase bass a lot while still sounding nice. All the cans with nicely boosted bass tends to have a driver vent.

Critical listening. 

 

 

I got an e-mail asking if I had considered reviewing my Akai cans. I responded that I had no experience with Studio Cans.

 

Got a 2nd mail advising that 1-3 holes (not more than 3) could be opened. Was told which ones to open in what order.

 

I never opened a can before so I proceeded with caution.  Remover 2 as I was told that would be enough without interfering with the lower mid and remaining response.

 

At this stage they hit about as hard as the Q40. The mids are spectacular. I actually have very little experience with mids. These cans are suddenly my 3rd hardest hitting which was the SMS Dj Pro...which also has a M100 type slope. "Fun".

These are now another can.

I will not open a 3rd hole.

I will do a review of these soon now.
