I am asking for you guys to tell me if these songs are more mid or sub bass focused.  I want to know so i'll know which sound to focus on, on my next IEM purchase.

 

These 700's are like magic once I opened them I had them on for 5 hrs straight.  Would have been longer but I was called to help with dinner lol.

1st: mid bass

2nd: bass (not really sub bass)- I like this song. Any more like it?

 

On your pros, have you swapped out the earpads? You can check my sig or look at my posts in this thread and the pro700mk2 thread for more info on them. Make sure to read up on this to get the gist of how to describe a sound.

 

Also, this may help you. Some other member posted it on here, and I found it very informational.

Songs like that 1? Just to start off you should check out....... (in order)

1.Nujabes (king of the genre)

2.DJ Okawari

3.Nomak

That should keep you busy for a while (if you need more artists let me know).

 

My pro's have stock pads on them.

Thanks for the pic w/ the piano.  I cant play the piano (or any instrument for that matter lol) but I know what the keys sound like and the bottom part that shows what keys makes what sound made it easy for me to understand better.

Bass is NEVER too much :D

post #3066 of 11259

Well to me they are fantastic (but I'm a severe BASSHEAD!!), however I have to award the cks77 with the higher mark in everthing except bass quantity and BOOMiness!!!.  Oh and the highs I actually liked better on the pro700 (let me explain) on certain songs the highs on the 77's can really pierce/hurt my ears but the 700's can play the same note smooth as hell with no pain for me.  For an IEM i'd recommend the 77's no doubt and the pro's would get the nod for my cans of choice.  Take into consideration I'm an IEM guy (I always figured as much but getting the 700's confirmed this for me).  The 700's are likely the only can I will ever like for a few reasons.

post #3067 of 11259

BTW I listened to the 700's (and all the cans I tried) with the E11 turned to juuuuust before the bass starts distorting (like 75-80% of max volume) (I specified cans b/c I can't take IEM's that loud since they are IN your ear already).

post #3068 of 11259

Sorry for posting so much, but to be fair I have only tried 3 cans so far, the 700's (my fav.) the ws55, and the aviators (my friend had a pair so I tried), and a pair of sony's (not included in my "can count" b/c I don't know if they were basshead cans or not.  My lil bro just had them lying around in his clothes hamper lol).

After trying the 700's I doubt I need try try any more cans b/c I think this is as good as it gets (for me), but I may try more a bit later.

post #3069 of 11259

700's are more "fun" than the 77's to me though, just to be clear. They make it sound like a club is sitting over your ears.  Honestly I do believe if I wasn't so used to IEM's I'd prefer the 700's over the 77's, I love the 700's that much lol.

Sorry for going on and on, this will be my last post on the topic lol.

We're pretty much bassheads on the opposite side of the coin. I'm not a huge fan of IEMs, and I only pretty much have a handful, with Westone 3 and Shure SE215 being the basshead picks of the lot. Cans just deliver a better bass experience; it's more than just what you're hearing, but feeling it as well.

I agree but also disagree, Nujabes's music was not as bassy as you think alot of the remixes of his stuff is BASS heavy, although there's a good amount of bass Tsuchie [who did alot of work with Nujabes on the Samurai Champloo OST] has some BASSY FREAKING MUSIC, along with Fat Jon. Yes nujabes has very nice bass in his music... I like his upper range styleing more so

 

but either way you look at it his music sounds great, wheather on a BASS head can like the Xb 700 or wih the Dt 880s... he was really a master of what he did >.> music that sounds good Dark OR bright... what a king!

Thats right. It's a better bass experience indeed. I was a IEM guy till I've tried a basshead can (XB500 & XB700 - my first experience with full size phones that make you feel the ear massage).

Yep, I like the tickling-ear effect which only bassy fullsize headphones do together with some amping/bass boost. It even helps me determine if the levels of bass is adequate when mastering hardstyle tracks, when barely starting to feel the bass tickle my ears with ZO2.1 at level 7-8 or so on the Q40 I know it's on a correct level. ^^

I wasn't saying Nujabes had the most bass of the genre, I was just saying his music is rated by many if not all (myself included) as the "Best".

Sorry if it came out that I was implying he was king of bass

I agree, cans do deliver better bass impact (feel) thats why I decided to try these.  For me (maybe it b/c of the cans I tried) Iem's SOUND better but for sure I won't deny cans FEEL better.  I am at a loss here and wish some super tech would be created to allow me to hear cans as I hear IEMS.  Then I would go for cans only, no brainer.  :)
