HA, ha. I used RMAA (Rightmark Audio Analyzer) today to measure the frequency response of my "Maximum Bass Setup" Windows PC, used with my JVC HA-SZ2000:

+29.5dB @ 25Hz

 

 

You'll kill almost every can you come across. I never pushed the 77's to diaphram distortion because the cup resonance/hum was already interfering with the hit though it feels good and doesn't sound bad I can feel the driver about to lose it

 

On the sz I can put a slope about +22-25dB and turn the amp to about 40% (source is at about 65% volume) and that is "edge of inner ear pain" for me. 

 

Bravo to you!!! Bravo!!!!

lol @ that peak xD For my taste the bass would be too deep though. :) Lack of midbass = lack of punchiness & generally softer bass impact. But each to its own :P At least your setting is very narrow enough that it will be pretty focused like a tactical nuke! :P Narrower range generally leads to more impact because the energy is very high where it hits. Like how high heels wear down floors many many times more than regular shoes because the area where it hits the floor is small so it becomes very focused.

I'd politely disagree. This track with a 22dB boost at 45Hz (low bass) will make your upper neck vibrate. Anything less and it's just a low freq hit. Crank the amp and boost the lows and this will...this exact track will rumble your neck. Makes you repeatedly swallow without realizing it...then you do and you keep doing it cuz it's a really odd sensation. And the 2nd hit that is around 80Hz is very punchy at high amp but that low rumble is making ya gag. 

 

 

 

 

The comment about too deep...

I think the knights of the basstemplar  woulda burned you at the stake back in the day:D

Here's a present:

 

I looked at the frequency responses of my two other Maximum Bass Extreme setups, the Cowon iAudio U3 with BBE 10 and Mach3 Bass 10, and JetAudio Plus for Android (X-Bass 100, Heavy Metal 2 X2 EQ) with the Cyanogenmod 10 DSP Manager (Bass Boost Extreme, Rock EQ, Loudness Compensation Strongest):

So my Android setup peaks at 50Hz. With my basshead in-ears (Sennheiser CX500) I couldn't find any other setup that quaked like my Android phone. And then I discovered the Windows bass boost and Equalizer APO, and see how they almost match, except I absolutely prefer the 25Hz Peak of Mt. Bass.

Yeah Wizard, I only realized the divergent bass preferences among bassheads when I complained about the Soundmagic E10 in-ears having "bloated" bass. So in my deep-end of the basshead fandom, we see midbass as bloat while in your midbass fandom you see exaggerated deep-end as weak. It's all good, really!

I really don't have an SPL meter but if you watch Hawaii's video review of the JVC's you'd have an idea.

The 77's with the ported/vented driver caused me to start hunting for a low deep and hard hit. The SZ was the result of that pursuit. I need stuff coming in at 20Hz well raised and ready to go so the start of the note where my ear can catch it is well formed and elevated.  Coming from car audio where my JL  and DD resonated/detonated around  33Hz and went atomic from 45-70Hz I have kinda come full circle. I can now listen to tracks that were nice on my car system and head them through headphones. I found it. I ain't even looking for headphones anymore except maybe a back-up pair of 77's and SZ cuz JVC has no clear pattern and I have no idea when the stuff they build is gonna be gone/discontinued etc.

Hey Hawaii, what ever happened to your upcoming review of the M-audio hdh50?

Fellow Bassheads i have just a quick question about double amping. I have an fiio e12 and aDT770 and i find bass not that satisfying for me. I Just got a ZO2 from a friend and it will be arriving this friday. Is it possible to put the two together with an iPod as the source? Will that improve my bass hunger. I know most of you will say get a bassier headphones but thats not an option at the moment. 

post #10995 of 11259

So a little update...

Yeah, I like the DonScorpio Drama headphones... Used it the whole past week at work and using it right now. It's not the most proficient headphone ever but the boosted low give it kind of a "DSP"-like effect that I like especially with Pop, punk and metal. Bass is quite powerful on my hip-hop tracks (need to try the songs posted by @Hawaiibadboy though) and for the price (or if found even lower) it's a good recommendation.

 

Note: "Once volume is up, there's a bit of distortion coming on, not sure if it's due to resonance on the plastic cups or drivers being pushed too much. Also, depends on recording, highs can become a bit grating but it has only happen with very "hot" songs.)

 

All in all, I LIKE! Hope to work on a review soon-ish.

 

Another update, bit the bullet and bought a JVC hp-dx700 (the DX1000 was just too expensive... and I still haven't received my Enigma's nor modded T5Ps -- both non-basshead). Hopefully I'll get it soon and put it through the paces.

 

 

Check.
