The M50 isn't, but the HFI 580 is a pretty good basshead can. What are you comparing the HFI 580s with?


Curse you poor grammar!!! No my recommendation was the HFI580 and the seconed part of t.he sentence after the comma was separate.

Oh, I see. :D Well then, we're in concurrence with our opinions. HFI 580 rocks! L3000.gif

One last question. Does the HFI-580 have a similar SQ with the DJ1/DJ1Pro? Because on the headphones list they are listed as one.

The dj1s are the same headphones just diffrent aesthetics. The dj1 have a coiled cable and the hfi580 have a long straight cable.

thanks. bigsmile_face.gif

No problem. If you like the looks of the HFI580 but not the cable length then I suggest braiding it. It will then be around 4 ft long.

What Prakhar said, but note that the DJ1 Pro are different and are the Pro 550 which have a more balanced sound.

The DJ1 is the same headphone as the HFI 580, and the DJ1 PRO is the same as the PRO 550.

 

Like Prakhar mentioned, the cable for the HFI 580 is very long (3m). If you can, you should get the DJ1 instead, as it comes with a coiled cable. Alternatively, you might want to braid the HFI 580's cable.

I'll choose the Ultrasone DJ1. Maybe the detachable cable mod won't harm the SQ of the headphones right?

No.

The resistance added is ignorable.

I haven't tried either. From my understanding the CKS77 is generally considered the best bass iem with a dynamic driver. There are other bassy iems that get praise such as the hippos and the atrios, but the CKS77 seems to get the highest praise. Check out the appreciation thread to read more about them, and read post #1099 http://www.head-fi.org/t/604094/the-ath-cks77-big-roomy-detailed-balanced-n-i-am-not-just-talking-about-the-bass/1095

Cks90 are not better sounding than cks77 fwir. You could ask dsnuts he has them both.

Anyone know which of these has the best/loudest bass.

 

- PRO700 MK2

- Crossfade LP2

- HDJ2000

- HDJ1500

 

I can't audition them because the music/guitar centers around me don''t have these for testing.

 

My brother in law loves heavy bass, and and my wife and I are trying  get him a headphone with the loudest bass.

We're trying to remove the beats brand from him.
