im just interested if ill be able to tell the difference between them, seeing as these are the 1st amps i ever got, together with the only headphones i ever got.

i actually got the cMoy because it got good reviews. then a couple of days ago decided to get the fiio aswell, after reading some head-fi reviews (as opposed to amazon reviews i based my original purchase on) of the dt770 that claim the bass is more than neutral, but not actually that strong, so i got the e11 because of the 3db bass boost it offers, as opposed to the almost 10db the cMoy offers. 10db is a big boost.

i figured id test all these claims that theres a difference between amps and what not. im a newbe and i want to experiment.

 

Yea I got them both also, the cMoy while a great amp is colored so I don't want to use a Colored amp with a very Neutral set up [for the pourpose of experinceing neutral sound I want a neutral amp]
 
But the E11 is darker thant he cMoy so they are both good just differnt. I'm thinking of using the cMoy with the dt 880 for enjoyment and the e11 for the 880 when I just want NEUTRAL referance sound, then using the E11 with my Xb700 since the E11s are darker and the XB likes a DARK dap and Amp [which I have]
 
So you know the more the merrier! I'm sure the Dt990s will like the Cmoy as well since it has more mid bass due to its coloratrion!

They are nowhere to be seen around europe yet and M100 impressions might be available soon too, I have a feeling M100 will be much more fit for me though with slightly more bass and slightly better soundstage with similar kind of mids & highs to UE6000. 


I don't think the UE6000 can quite handle the bass quantity you are looking for, but I expect the M-100 to fill that role.

I LOVE Hardstyle :D  It's the second EDM genre I got into, the first being Jumpstyle.

 

 

Question for anyone that can answer it.  Are there headphones that have better tactile bass than the Ultrasone DJ-1?  One can in particular I'm looking at is the V-Moda Crossfade LP2.  I would have my eye at the 100, but they're out of my price range :(

the quote function was wonky so i hope this post doesnt end up wonky aswell...

 

anyway, when you say colored, in what way? you say the e11 is darker and yet you say its neutral. am i mixing up the glossary terms? i thought dark meant "with emphasis on the lower end of the music" (in my own words...)

 

also, the cMoy is supposed to have a flat line frequency response, at least thats what the graph that came with it says... could you explain what you mean please?

Then tell me how this:

sounds the same as this:

This is all examples of hardstyle tracks. They do follow similar track structure with an intro/break/climax(sometimes anticlimax)/outro part though, that and the hardstyle kicks and reverse bass lines and the bpm is what defines hardstyle. Early hardstyle used to be 135 bpm btw, these days it's mostly 150.

 

There's very different styles though, early hardstyle was mostly reverse basslines and minimal use of any vocals with mostly screeches and random noises, then there's "raw/dark" and the more uplifting/euphoric side and hands-up and this summer it's been a lot popstyle tracks with lots singalong kind of vocals.

 

he has the point, it sounds same, like it was made with the same sample over and over by untalented being lacking producing skills...
the *CENSORED* you posted is not hardstyle, its a brostyle - a mainstream mid range oriented noise aimed at the kids blasting it trough cellphones and jumping around saying POMP POMP POMP!

 

 

this is HARDSTYLE

That song was beyond overplayed, especially the remix.  Best part about it is the freeze-frame ;)

off course it sounds horrible, because its not dubstep, its a brostep

its like calling "rock" metal or reverse, they are different genres

also beat is same as in every brostep song, i.e. *CENSORED*


Chill out bro! Music-hipster much? No need to be bashing other peoples taste in music here! There is no such thing as *CENSORED* music or *CENSORED* music genres! Only different taste!

imo, brostep=bad dubstep. It's basically dubstep taken too far, and it has a disgusting type of sound to it. I didn't know that type of song had a genre of its own because it sounded a bit like dubstep to me. Thanks for telling me, but calm down F3nNec, nobody is trying to start anything. We're just expressing our opinions on music genres. There's nothing to get upset about.

 

EDIT: The links RPGWiZaRD gave us is hardstyle, not brostep. I think I'm actually starting to warm up to hardstyle too. I guess it's an acquired taste tongue.gif

i disagree, while not very fond of skrillex (although he does have a track or two that i like, his track together with damian marley for example), there are other brostep dj's whom i love dearly such as flux pavillion and the rest of the guys at circus records like doctor p or roksonix.

post #2998 of 11259

Well then. I clearly don't know my genres tongue.gif I was thinking this whole time that artists like skrillex, flux, doctor p, etc. were dubstep artists. I guess that means that I like brostep.

Based on reviews, exactly the same as the UE6000 which is fantastic (see that thread for impression)

iv found over the years the genre/genre names is a convoluted and sometimes silly business. often subject of way too much discussion and controversy.

 

i think its mainly to do with sub-genres that come out of the main stream and start a life of their own. so in metal for example, out of black metal you get dipressive/oldschool/1st wave/2nd wave/cult/atmospheric black metal (and many more). from dubstep grew brostep/oldschool/downtempo/chillstep/deep/heavy... 

 

these can be a good tool when looking for more music similar to the music you already have, but can often turn into tiresome conversations like "brostep is bad dubstep", "only oldschool stuff like skream is REAL dubstep and the rest is newage sh*t" and all sorts of things... 

 

its easyer to just classify everything under one big roof and call it dubstep if you ask me, and then if theres a specific type you dont like, you can just stay away from it. i think brostep is subjected to most of the criticism. i also think this is unfair. imo, brostep is similar to beats headphones, ill explain:

they both got recognition in the mainstream and considerable amounts of hype. this causes a great amount of antagonism towards them, making it hard to tell if theyr really THAT bad or people just dont like it because everybody else does. so, if you like it, keep it and enjoy, if you dont - then dont.

edit: what i meant to say here is that you should judge according to your own taste and not according to name/general opinion of others.

 

like i said, brostep is one of my least favorite kinds of dubstep (with the exceptions mentioned earlyer), but many other dj's exist other than skrillex and its just not fair to say "skrillex sucks and so all brostep is bad". flux pavillion is one of my favorite dj's and i listen to his stuff very often. (he also puts on one hell of a show!)
