Im thinking of 

 

Source (Either Clip Zip, or an Ipod nano)

ZO2

M100s

 

Im not sure If I can get anything better for the price...

 

I don't think you can, not for your intended use.

Thats good to know. Are you planning to pick up the M100s?

I wouldn't. I prefer SQ to bass only and the E11 is technically superior.

-.- 

 

Since NOBODY has said ANYTHING, the Xb 700's are rather nice and while MEGA Dark, have very Sibiliant Highs [unless your mod them which makes them darker and deeper]

 

But XB 700 

 

Tonality 7.5

Quanity 8

 

So there you guys go, gawd should we also specify with quanity the differenace bewtween Sub and Mid bass?

 

the 700 would be as followed

T 7.5

Q[s] 10

Q[m] 6

 

So when you average those you get 8, because as we all know... some cans love taht sub bass, some love that mid... the XB 700s are ofc SUB heavy with some very terrible Mid Decay >.>

I respect your point on this, but a good 90+% of the time, newbies that join these board's don't know what they are looking for, yet alone know what mids, sub-bass, frequency response, highs, mids and treble are, not to mention a good percentage of them don't even use the search function to already answered threads instead they just make new threads. (Not being negative here, but it's true)

 

Another point is, while everything here is a pretty subjective, having figures for some headphones like bass - 9, treble - 8, this will confuse some user's (not all), and while one person may find one headphone extremely bassy, the other may not, for bad as the ATH-M50's sound to my ear's, I would give their bass a good 4 for sub-bass, impact and presentation. It does sound like a good idea having a number scale for the different frequency range in sound (that is your lows, mids, highs, treble, bass response etc), a good idea would be to also post an example of what songs it sounds bassy with and on how it does. Yes it get's into detail but personally I feel this method, users will be acquainted by an easier or cleaner layout to read from.

They are warm and laid-back is the word your looking for to describe the XB 700's (the XB-1000's slightly brighter in the treble range but still recessed). If your saying mega dark, then it mean's they have an extremely shelved sound presentation.

I remember reading something Craigster wrote (In the M100 Thread) about sometimes wanting an insane, rediculous amount of bass when that extreme basshead moment comes along.

 

The ZO2 would acomplish that I think without being detrimental to the sound quality. He already has the E11 for normal usage.

Oh, in that case I agree : )

ZO2 it is!  I love my my M-100s so much I think I would rather obtain a different sound by varying amps instead of purchasing an additional headphone unless something really special comes along.

What I did in the past was dual-amping with the E11 + ZO2. SQ decreases a little (micro-detail), but I guarantee that this combo is earth-shaking.

Better than the ZO2 alone? If so, by how much?

post #3252 of 11259

Another person reported the same in the ZO thread lately, double amped with ZO2.3 and E11 with great results. I would guess it's due to ZO2.3 being slightly underamped from what would be ideal that it benefits quite a lot by extra amping, I got a ZO2.3 and ZO2.1 and ZO2.1 had a bit higher gain than ZO2.3 which helps already when comparing a bit harder to drive headphones. I think ZO2.3 works perfectly with easily driven headphones such as M100 though, I don't think M100 would benefit a lot by it but some other headphones probably would if double amping.

 

It's interesting that it can be double amped with good results for starters... I did try double amping with 2x ZOs.... DAAAT BASSSSS, even at the lower levels it was like crazy bassy haha, I didn't dare going max level on both but I don't think any headphone drivers would be able to withstand it and output a clean bassresponse with that either.

 

The ZO is an analog amp, the signal never gets digitally processed AFAIK so that may be the reason it works well double amped too.

double amping? iv never thought of doing such a thing... what does one accomplish by this? using two bass boosters or just more gain? or both? i got a little confused 

post #3254 of 11259

Both. The levels of bass are insane and you'll have the superior SQ of the E11 connected to the ZO2.3, which helps.

so your saying that if for arguments sake i got a headphone that was harder to drive, i could plug it into the e11 and plug the e11 into my cmoy (i dont own a zo) and together theyd provide enough juice whereas alone they wouldnt be able to cope?
