Well, "Better bass" is definitely subjective.

 

However, a larger surface area will definitely move more air - it has a larger physical driver, and will be "felt" more than a driver of a smaller size.

Hell, if I wanted to "feel" the bass I would get subs or skull candies.

Bass is something you hear not feel.

You could get Velodyne vtrue, Yamaha Pro 500 , 77's and enjoy headphones that sound like headphones and hit like small subs. Or get the sz and wave goodbye to the mids and have a genuine subwoofer ported chambered and everything right on your head.

 

A live concert is the clarity ref for many evaluators.  Stage, instruments , positioning. Live shows have giant drivers and you usually feel the bass as it's slow wave passes through your body. I would never buy crushers. I don't need to.

an earthquake is essentially inaudible bass. Its the most tangible part of the spectrum and also arguably the most powerful.

If this were true, the only cans we'd have would be Beats, Sony, Bose, etc.

It'd probably be better to say that we're sheep who rely on word of mouth to tell us what's good. :tongue:

This has some truth to it. No matter how hard you try, headphone bass just isn't going to give you the same feeling as a proper speaker setup. There's definitely enough ground to support an argument that headphone bass is heard more than felt.

+1. Word-of-mouth is quite reliable; much more so than overexaggerated marketing schemes. I'd like to think that we're wolves in sheep's clothing. I can't say why, but that's how I think.

Just a couple of pics....

 

 

 

Just got home so I haven't even plugged them in yet.

I have to say that they look great for the price, kind of flimsy though, earpads seem to be not removable (:( ), good packaging. Love that they come with their own cases. (weird how something from like Audio Technica comes with crappy ass baggies... I'm looking at you M50x's!! :-p)

I saw one review of the dolphins about a week ago and it mentioned the non removable pads. It was the dolphins I think. 

 

Those blue ones....mmmmmmm

gelocks will be in I hope.

The Dolphin are more stylish spectrum friendly though bass emphasized per reports. The Bass Monitors...I have never seen or heard of them? They are priced right I think the Perfect dido are the max low end a 40mm will give ya but maybe these.....and for the price? I'd buy em just for the cost to performance ratio depending on gelocks review.

 

"Bass Monitors"....sound all valid and ****...me wants just cuz it's rare....if the word is good...so I wait.

Awaiting impressions on those Drama's. They do indeed look good :p

Don't really consider myself a basshead but I usually use the CKM500 which is a bit on the bassy side. However, lately I've been using my HTC headphones more and more. They are sometimes dismissed as "unbranded Beats", and indeed I found them too bassy at first, but I was quite surprised how good the soundstage and instrument separation was. The highs are a bit veiled but still very detailed. I notice a lot of details that I never noticed before. The bass is huge and can be bloated or muddy in some tracks, but you can't really ask too much considering its price point (free with HTC phones or less than $5 online). Another problem is build quality as its cable is TERRIBLY microphonic and the plug is also flimsy.
