Definitely not as much bass, but solid, deep, punchy and powerful bass with far superior overall sound across the range.  Certainly satisfying for a basshead.  Much more neutral with extended highs compared to the PRO700MK2 and superior resolution and detail in mids and highs compared to Q40 IMO.

I think the Fiio E17 is a very underestimated basshead amp! 2 step increments all the way up to +10dp bass is just ridiculous and will make (almost) anything rumble!

You said the bass is punchy, would you still put it heavily subbass skewed or is there enough midbass in there too? I personally need balanced subbass vs midbass presence, the graph draws my conclusions towards subbass for this headphone. It measures so well in the 30Hz square wave though so I'm guessing it's unusually punchy for how subbass skewed it might be, would this be an accurate description of it?

To my ears, excellent mid bass, very satisfying.  The UE 6000 is everything I hoped the Denon D600 would be at less than half the price and only gives up a little resolution to the D600.

Nothing factual to base this on other than some specs and higher pricing, just a gut feeling, but I think the AKG Tiesto K267 will do everything these do, but better.

I have been listening to the UE6000 for the past few hours and they are fantastic.

 

I'm just going to put the UE6000 on my to-bloody-buy list since black and blue are my absolute favorite colors. It'll be even better if they are a good basshead can! smile_phones.gif

 

Btw, I just got the CitiScape Downtown, and it's a pretty good can. I'm going to be listening to more of it, and will A/B with the CitiScape Shibuya, but damn, Philips are making some nice cans these days. :)

fyi, listened to both and IMO the SQ of the UE6000 handily bests the Downtown.  It's not that the Downtown is a bad headphone, it's just that the UE6000 is really something special at its price point.

No bassheads in here listening to hardstyle? Suppose it's not nearly as popular genre in US as europe though as there's barely no hardstyle events over there. Basshead & hardstyle goes like hand in hand but what sets it apart from for example the dubstep genre is that here it's about the SOUND & TEXTURE of the bass and it's a whole science behind it how to create a hardstyle kick which is very difficult to get a good sounding kick. This genre also traditionally uses a lot of reverse bass which sounds a bit different than your typical bass line.

 

Here's some examples:

   

 

Subscribe to above chan if you like euphoric, melodic & emotional hardstyle. :P

Meh, hardstyle all sounds the same to me. They all use basically the same bassline, or at least a variation of it, the same bpm, and the overall "signature", for lack of a better word, of the songs are presented in the same fashion. It sounds neat when you hear it for the first time, but when you start listening to other songs, it starts to become redundant and boring.

that brennan heart track was pretty cool, thank you for introducing me to this genre, never heard of "hardstyle" in the past. cant say it has such a distinct sound though... i would have probably classified it as some sort of house if i would have heard it by chance...
