I know most of you will say get a bassier headphones but thats not an option at the moment. 
I think the ZO2 alone will provide enough bass for you.

+1, double amped with E12 you will get a whole new level of bass, more significantly than a headphone swap at least.

Some audiophiles are trying to tell me that the skullcandy crushers are bass cannons... Yeah... Right. I haven't even tried them, nor do I want to, but that's just a ridiculous statement. I keep telling them that I'd prefer to stay away from skullcandy etc because of the fact I know jvc can lay down some heavy bass. They say I might like them, but I doubt it.

I haven't tried them either so I can't make a comment on how they sound. I wouldn't expect much from skullcandy; though to be honest, apart from a select few cans most of their stuff has been at best pretty meh and at worse terrible.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at what the ZO can do to a pair of DT770s. Report back with your findings!

 

Also RE: skullcandy - the "Aviators" weren't too bad, to be honest. 

 

(Definitely not basshead material, though)

That's what I meant by a certain few. The Mix Master Mike were also alright. On the other hand, both feel a bit cheap and easily broken.


I'm starting to think of upgrading my M-audio Q40, but I really can't think of anything that's a more refined version of it. The Yamaha HPH-MT200 was the only thing that comes to mind but I'm worried that it would be more of a sidegrade than an upgrade. Anyone with experience with both or any other suggestions? Remember that I don't like peaky treble and love my mids though. Also, would be great if they were closed-back and if the Alpha Pads fit on them so I don't have to sell them it would be amazing :)

 

Perhaps a list of which cans I've already tried and my impressions on them might help.

  • M-Audio Q-40 (slightly too much clamp, great sound signature)
  • Fostex TH-600 (slightly peaky treble but absolutely amazing sound otherwise)
  • JVC SZ-2000 (seriously crap mid-range but pretty awesome bass)
  • Beyerdynamic DT-770 80-ohm (I kind of forgot my impressions which tells me that they probably aren't especially good or bad in any way)
  • Denon AH-D600 (gigantic and cumbersome but sounds pretty good and is definitely comfortable)
  • V-Moda M-100 (really uncomfortable and mids were too recessed for my liking)
  • Philips Fidelio X1 (really good sound, but open-back! Geh!)

Quite a list there. Have you tried the Pro900?

Not yet. Haven't found it in a shop in HK yet but maybe the next time I go I'll spot it.

All they do is vibrates. They don't hit. Sound quality isn't on the up either

I knew it! So they are ignorant of bass cans!... I've seen people call ath-m50x's bass cannons because of the 6 db bass boost... Think of how that same person would react to skull crushers... Lol. Its just really funny how they think they know anything about bass impact from headphones, yet they haven't ever owned anything that even would give them a tickle.

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.

 

 

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.

 

Impact>>Distortion check

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fgVXZHVOfQ

 

Overlapping 41,43 Hz drags.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPGvuClerhc

 

Sub rolloff low freq check

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmP7TYtDVUU

 

Overlapping 25 and 70Hz  Impact and Rumble.   At high volume based on 70Hz hit  the 25Hz note should be vibing the pads/head while the low note hums the head

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQpUlDOHkIE&feature=kp

 

 

Another multi layered Phil Spector type wall of bass sound track  with mids and highs well mixed. High volume and amp this will highlight and check all the boxes

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eU4ZvfkmOck&feature=kp

 

New track (bout a month old) very well mixed in the studio. mids are up front in this so with the hits you can get a feel for low>>mid transition

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IS72_uX1Q8o

 

 

 

Am looking forward to the DX 700 review:D

The build quality is terrible also. They look and feel cheap. Just a bunch of buzzing on the ear.

Yes. They suck very very much. No way they make the basshead can list. It's a poorly made gimmick.

just like the apple retina display. They took an LCD screen, slapped on a fancy name, made it seem like its cutting edge technology, (the iPhone 5s isn't even HD!) then sell it to people who don't know better... The color representation is off on the retina screens too. Its too cool. It should have been tinted a little warmer... But back to the bass! Lol... Just how much do the skull crushers vibrate with no impact?
