The Basshead Club - Page 122  

post #1816 of 11259

The one with the most bass and I am not talking about bass that is uncontrolled I am talking about controlled, clear bass that pounds your head bass meaning sub bass is the Future Sonics MG6Pro. The other is the JH13 which are not considered bass heavy at all. Auniversal earphone that has more bass then the 900 are" Atrios and the Ultimate ears 5 Pro EB. The 5Pro EB has a dynamic driver with a BA driver.

Just heard an IEM with enough bass that it causes head aches. It was too muffled for enjoyable listening, but $20 the bass was not bad. Will recommend if the company making them fix it.

Someone needs to add the Sony WM-Z Walkman (Z1060, Z1060, Z1070) to the list of EQ´able daps..best DAP i have heard, prefer it to my old RWA iMOD...and bass extends quite far! (also lovely 4.2" screen too for movies and games etc)

 

When SOny Z is paired with a ZO2, bass in unreal for a portable source and this connected to a CKS77 it makes for a bassheads wet dream LOL, never thought i could get this kind of bass response and still have this much clarity and detail from a portable setup that doesnt break the bank and isnt bulky AT ALL!! 

 

You all need to try this setup!

Another update about this IEM I was listening to. Had an amplifier issue. The IEMs are a lot less muffled now. Sounds rather pleasant actually. Still some of what appeared to be infrasonic headaches though

I know this is going to sound crazy but I ran my XB500 through E11 / rockboxed ipod mini / LOD combo, (first time I tried the ipod) I took a heap of mid bass EQ out and lifted the high end. I gave the lower bass EQ 120Hz, then let them roll with some dubstep. The higher I work the volume up the clearer these become. I know I said last page I was disappointed but with the ipod mini /LOD to E11 with some pretty harsh EQing these things came to life.

Nothing like I experienced yesterday first out of the box, which I also put down to just arriving home stressed, maybe they're burning in as I muck around with them? I also put this down to the variety of players I can hook up to the E11 (check profile) because the Clip+ and Walkman were not giving me these results. I've taken the listing down from ebay and I shall keep them for the time being.

It it wasn't for you sid12345678910 I probably wouldn't of picked them up againbeyersmile.png
 

wow that ment alot to me thx and here some tips

 

first if you are ipod use an app called equ,but i am gussing your on the sana clip, any eq can make these can sound butifull, btw these things are incredably deep there very balnced for midbass and subass, but i hate midbass (runis the sound) so thats why i take it all down to try and match the mids and the highs, what you are aming for is a straight line from midbass starting around 120hz to 10khz, if you can achive that then sir you have just tripled the SQ of your headphones same as the price these sound better then headphones at around 150 US +

second these things need a good 10 hour burn in thats it, they dont benfit anymore

third these things dont need an amp, they wont benfit from it whats so ever, if you need amp use a falt one, you have a filo e11 so you are set

I am gussing you are just using the bass boost on them

, if you are then your just adding extra bulk as the bass boost is adding 6db at around 62hz, nothing a good eq cant do

 

these thing were really protable with my ipod, very conftable around the neck and no amp necciary just a thin ipod with equ and the cans XD

the +12db on 31hz was just for that mouthwatering rumble basshead.gif not necciary sound good with just 4db

 

PS becarful with your hearing i almost destroyed mine with the XBs lol

Zune [shut ur faces xD] > Zo2>E17>Headphone

 

is that how it would work? I'm looking at getting and E11 honestly for use with my XB700

 

Lastly in with regards to your EQ for Xb500... I have XB700 so my mids are by NO MEANS over powering... I still need to play with eq settings for it *sigh*

 

The ZO2 is an amp in itself, and does just one thing really beautifully - make your headphones rattle with solid bass beats. :)

 

If you ask me, if all you want is a bass booster, then you should get the ZO2 over the E11, although I can see that you have already settled for the E17 and DT880? Like you said, that doesn't sound very basshead-like? You're not planning to deviate, are you? biggrin.gif

 

Jokes aside, do consider the ZO2 + XB1000 combo. It's really nice, and I prefer that setup over even the XB500. The ability of the XB1000 to better control its bass output without muddying anything too much makes for a fine listening experience. Of course, the 500s are there if you still want your bass massage.

Oh please, I'll never get the 500's I have the 700's and I don't plan on getting a smaller pair of headphones :3, and yes sadly I am devaiting from the path of Bass Head for the time! But after I get the DT880 and E17 combo, the E17 will do nicely with my 700's until I can pair an E11 with the XB1000!

 

Again I'm sure at some point in the future I'll try the Z02, as people tell me it's very fun and offers a unique bass sound that is really very enjoyable, that being said it's been said the E11 is more accurate and simple in that it just offers a bass boost, without adding anything to it, which is what I'm looking for atm. But I'm an Audiophile in the making, the fun of it is figureing out what you like best and having a nice collection to reflect that reaserach. I'm soon to start working and going to College [for Cullinary Arts so I won't be to swamped with home work], that means so long as I stay at home I'll have a decent amount of extra cash to put to gether at least 3 more set ups over the one I currently have :3.

 

But yea, XB1000 does have much better control, and on that note the 700 has better control than the 500s [the 1000 is the most controlled of course] so in the future I'll be sure to play around with a combination of amps with the XB1000 & 700 respectively.

Pads used: Beyerdynamic Gel Earpads, Beyerdynamic DT250 Earpads

Amp used: FiiO E17

Software Used: Foobar 2000 w/ Wasapi, Channel Mixer, Noise Sharpening, and Graphic Equalizer

 

Just as a reference point, there is so much bass that it vibrates down the sides of my neck! I don't really want to go too much into detail about the sound characteristics b/c I'm sure nobody wants to read it, but just to make it short, it is way better than the M50s in every aspect. With this setup I have an extra ~37dB of bass. Not so much, now is it? I'm thinking about getting an L7 paired with a C421 amp with the bass switch enabled on that, but I'm thinking that the bi-amping will screw up the sound. 

 

There gel pads were too large, so I had to rip out my duct tape and rig them together. The hello kitty tape was just to give it sex appeal eek.gif

You need to give these burn-in honestly.

 

Mids will be recessed, but bass is most definitely punchy, and there.

Yeh, the XB700 is really a nice intermediary between the 500 and 1000, both in comfort and sound. The 700s walk a nice line between producing boomy and punchy bass. Unlike the 500s, you can EQ the 700 to sound a bit like the 500, but I don't think you can make the 500 any more refined. Haven't tried yet, though, TBH. I'm just happy using the 500 as my go-to can for a bass massage. That and the PRO700MK2. L3000.gif

 

Yeah, you'll really have to try the ZO2. If you love bass, you're going to want one of these babies. They are specialists in their field, although they will take some time getting used to. I used to be only somewhere in the region of 20 for my bass contour level, but I'm slowly edging up. :)

Wow, Hello Kitty. biggrin.gif

 

Anyway, the stock pads on the PRO700MK2s are quite janky. When I swapped them with my M50 pads, the bass really improved. Now, I'm just going to have to spring for a set of M50 pads. Btw, those modded PRO700MK2s kinda remind me the Sony XB series.. but with a more tender look. ;)
