Cracked my phone today. Ended up picking up the HTC One M8. And I have to say that this is the absolute best phone for bassheads and audiophiles alike. Has built in amplifier and BoomSound. Really makes yor cans thump, and your car shake. Blows away everything I've heard.

I can imagine you entering a Head-Fi Meet with your bass kit, challenging everyone in the room in the manner of dojo yaburi, your dojo sign on your shoulder. I know that people who pay for multi-thousand dollar headphone amps scoff at extreme bassheads, even if you argue that headphones should be able to reproduce whatever sound signal is given to them, even if such signal is a dangerously loud, pure bass thud. But still, I can see you putting the JVC HA-SZ2000 on someone's head, say "Can your $5,000 headphones do this?" and press play. If other headphones can truly sustain such low frequencies at extremely loud intensities (normal front-row rock concert level), then all the better for everyone. If not, I can already hear the reflexive, sincere denial sighing "If you think loud bass is the only important thing you're stupid" stupidity. Sure, it IS dangerous, literally. Ear death experience. Some may argue validly that endangering your hearing is more expensive than $5,000 headphones. Well, ****, then you just say "Well have you experienced something like THIS?" and you set "Rah" to full blast and press play.

 

BTW, I watched the first version and I thought it was cut off at 20 minutes, then I saw you reuploaded the full version. Just one comment on the JVC HA-MR77X: My 77's distort at extreme volumes if I don't have a normal seal, like if I simply take one cup off my ear you can hear distortion, as if the driver was designed to utilize the pressure within the seal to sustain its movement, and if the pressure is too low, the driver goes out of control. (That principle is the same with the JVX HA-FX101 in-ears.) In your video, the 77's don't distort even when you're playing them on open air, while the 55's do. It's hard to tell if the 55's do distort because they can't handle that bass, or they simply need a tight seal.

 

Great video. I really wish this "stress testing" becomes an established trend. It's just that the right products aren't connected with the right social channels. Having an "Ultimate Bass Champion" tournament, where headphones that can play bass the loudest win, should have the hearts of the rap/hip-hop communities and lovers of bass-driven music. Many extreme bass lovers are car audio enthusiasts who may not care about mere "simulations" such as headphones, but the SZ2000 can give you a close experience without the cops tapping to the beat on your window.

Youtube gave me fits with such a long vid:(

 

I watched myself and realized a few problems so let me say them before someone jumps on me.

 

1. I turned the amp down slightly after the 55's (Those are blown btw.) and didn't turn it back up for the 77's. The 55's blew out on:

 

 

The initial hit at :13  returns at :26 with a +3dB which was the final moment for those cans.  That wasn't open air causing the distortion it was just a blown driver trying to handle a heavy hit.

 

 

2. I made a comment about diaphram and vibration which was miss speak. My point was right but my wording wrong. I'd love to have a 70mm driver but it doesn't give the results you'd imagine at least not with whatever material sony used in the XB1000

 

3. Youtube lopped off the last 3 minutes of me using another hit to show the depth of the SZ v.s. the 77.

 

Oh well...

you are one insane man Hawaii... I love that!! Oh, by the way, id prefer not to buy anything with beats audio on it. It sucks so much imo. The phone id buy for great sound is a Nokia because of the built in eq, sound quality, etc. It may not have an amp that's as powerful, but I end up amping all of my cans anyways... PLUS, YOU BLEW OUT THE 55'S???... I don't have anything here that I could even try and attempt that lol. Its taken all I've thrown at it so far. Guess id need the e12 to do that then... I think the next can on my to buy list is the sz1000... Should be a real nice feeling massage. And one question: what's boomsound? I'd say HTC products are good for bassheads. Not audiophiles. For audiophiles, I have to suggest not using a phone for music, and skipping over to some high end music player.

HTC no longer comes with beats it's now called BoomSound. The amp on it is pretty powerful. Outputs higher than 95db. Causes my JBL to distort at high levels.

the speakers look to be the same as the HTC one... Nothing really different looking about it, although I know I hate audio enhancers. Yeah, not for me, especially since my 55's with the e11 amp get considerably louder than the original HTC one front speakers. The sound quality on them is better than other phones, but id prefer to use external speakers and headphones anyways. The e11 is most likely many times more powerful than that phones internal amp, especially if you live in the European union... They limit power output on portable music playing devices to headphones so stupid people with low impedance high efficiency cans don't ruin their ears... Stupid law in my opinion, although they don't ban amps, so that's a way around it. I'll say this: get a portable amp. You're missing out man. An e12... Whatever. Just buy an amp. Even the e6 that costs 28$ will put out more power than any phone.

I live in the USA. Audio is not limited, it is ubundant. There is no way that this needs an amp. With my car speakers it vibrates all of the mirrors.

yeah, I live in the US too... But, you still are missing out man. Without an amp, nothing there is at its full potential... Except those jbl's. They seem to be easy to distort. An amp will triple or even quadruple volume on your cans, assuming they can take the power. Just buy an e6 for 30$, and I promise you... You won't be disappointed at all. The e11 taught me that internal phone amps suck eggs. The htc one amp is anything special. External amps... That's another story. An external amp will win against your htc's output every time. Even just a 30$ amp will win. You MUST try one. I thought my csns were loud before, but with an amp they get louder than that htc's phone speakers... By about 1.5 times.

@DisCHORDDubstep if you get a chance you should go down to the phone store with your headphones and check it out. Not many stores have this phone yet though. So, if you think about going you may need to call ahead.

Listened to it with the Signature DJ. Quite impressive subbass. I will check again tomorrow night with the SZ2000, they should be delivered in my office tomorrow morning.
