post #3736 of 11259

Simple question (I hope) - for sub bass & comfort, which should I go for? AKG K167 or Beyer DT 770 Pro?

post #3737 of 11259
Guys what do you suggest for a bass head but who also wants good quality music to be heard when listening to Yanni ?
And for a starter whose budget isn't that high?

Craigster75 -  are the Comply foam tips worth it? i feel funny paying 10$ + god knows how much for shipping (i live far far away) just for 2 pieces of foam for my 80$ earbuds. do they make a really big difference? if you tell me the bass gets emphasized dramatically then im willing to pay. but if its just a marginal upgrade i think ill pass. whats your experience with these tips?

M-100.  I feel they offer the best balance of basshead can and audiophile multi-genre listening experience available today for their price.

Has anyone compared the Pro700MKII to the Beyer DT770/80 in sub bass output? Curious to see how they compare.

Glad to see these being recommended. They are underrated for sure.

Is poweramp only for Android?

i use beyerdynamic dtx101. iv heard that changing the tips can make a big difference to the bass. is ther any truth to this? if so, what tips are the best for bringing out the sub bass?

It's not about the tips, it's about a good seal, so use whatever tips seal your ears the best. There are no "best" tips because everyone's ears are different. For me personally, for example, the typical short, fat silicons are the best. Foam and bullet-shaped silicons (like the ones that come with Klipsche and Apple in-ears) are absolutely useless for me because even the "large" sizes are too long and narrow.

 

A good fit should get you a good seal, unless the manufacturer adds a "feature" called a pressure-relief system, like the idiots at Velodyne did to their vPulse, a fatal flaw in an otherwise perfect IEM... then you can't get them to stay in your ears no matter what you do :(

Believe it or not, the Monster N-tune is a decent-sounding, basshead level supra-aural in your price range.  Also, the UE4000 may be to your liking.  I have not auditioned those, but I am a fan of the UE6000.

You seem to be giving me great advice, thanks a lot ! Really ! You seem to be giving me great suggestions also.
Last question,
What do you think suits me best of these? If i love to listen to House ( Offer Nissim (you can check his track "illusion")) , Eminem , She wolf( same style songs with great beat and sound). Yanni... etc...

Monster NCredible NTune
Logitech UE 4000
Technics RP-DH1200 DJ
KRK KNS8400
Sony MDR-XB500
Sennheiser HD429
Shure 750DJ
AKG K167
Pioneer HDJ-2000
Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro Black

Thanks a lot !
The first 5 of the list is what i am really confused about, however... The K167 seems very seducing .
Thanks again !

ZAgain, you guys a Modded XB700 out of a CLEAN source is really a very magical Sub Bass experince! Teh Quanity and QUality are un matched for Sub Bass, and heck you can just EQ the mids back in. But again, XB700 is only for Sub Bass and MAKE SURE your ONLY eq'ing Sub bass.... I plugged my XB700s into my Hifiman's Line out and well... they sounded AMAZINGL. For the last year I've been using my Zune and the Zune has a pretty bad Sub Bass... OMG the Clean LIne Out from the Hifiman was like SUB BASS EAR SMEX... seriously awesome. Plus for $100 bucks it's the cheapest and best Sub Bass Solution, but it requires some work.

 

More importantly... if it's not SUb Bass the Xb's suck pretty bad... my DT 880 250 ohm does DnB better than the Xb's e.e [yea the Mid bass roll off is BAD on the Xb's]

 

That being said looking forward to owning the DT 990s some day :D

This will really depend on your preferred sound signature.  I know you like bass.  Do you prefer headphones with a bright treble or somewhat subdued/dark?  Also, how important is overall SQ compared with bass volume?

Will the Ultrasone Pro 900 and Fiio E11 be a good bass head rig?

If you like your treble to sound as pleasing as nails running down a chalkboard....
