I have, for the price there good, but nothing special imo.

I am gonna read the panasonic thread

I really do not like that Panasonics. They made sound good for the price, but their build really turns me off of them. Their drivers blow out constantly, and its odd having to blow into your headphones before every use. Also, I felt they could not take a whole lot of bass boost without distortion.

The HTF600 is too fragile. They have weak drivers that will easily blow if you turn up that ZO2.

YES! Ohmigawd. This was soooo disapointing when I listened to them. Its really, really frustrating

I don't need the XB500s, but I'd love them! The bass is already great with my HA-S500s, but with the Sony's, they will be even bassier with the ZO2.3!!! Are there any great IEMs for bass though, like deep impactful bass? biggrin.gif

Thanks! I'll have to look into them.

There are a couple. If you want something not as expensive as the FXZ-200 there is:

 

Atrio MG7

CKS77 or CKS99

SONY XB90EX

Oh dang, I just tried my old IEMs, and I can't get them to sound well in both ears as my left canal seems to be stopping up the sound. I will try the CKS77s later though, because Comply foam tips were okay, so it might just be the tops, even though I've tried quite a few...

You're certainly not going to get a lot of quality from the JVC Xtreme Xplosives line of cans. I have the HA-S4X and the HA-M5X, and both are really bassy cans without much of anything else. Compared to the XB500, they have slightly less bass and a lot less quality. They are good for bass heavy tracks, but everything else is pretty much a miss.

This thread made me cringe too:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/615155/practically-new-creative-aurvana-live-aka-denon-ah-d1001

 

But the last straw for me was in his deleted XB800 For sale thread when he raised the price to something ridiculous because they were just that darn good!

 

I don't know if it merits a ban but it is something that I think should be watched out for on this site. What he says doesn't add up and he was even communicating with himself on his multiple accounts trying to build more hype on some untouchable headphone and then to sell it ASAP.

 

Was miow the one who hyped the XB800 as being even bassier than the XB500? I found that very odd, really.

 

Anyway, I've always thought that he was good at hyping cans, but I never thought he'd register multiple accounts to facilitate this hype machine, and subsequently profit from them.

 

Still, let's move on. We still have a world of basshead cans to explore. :)
 

I'm waiting on my XB800/900s to arrive in stock, and I'm hoping to get a TMA-1 sometime soon. I love the anticipation when you're about to get a new pair of headphones.

Do any of these have inline remote/mic? I have the vPulse and the sound is good but I'm sick of their inability to stay in my ears. I need a higher pressure seal. Any recommendations for HUGE sub bass with neutral everything else?

I would suggest trying the B&W C5.  They have a secure ear loop so they stay in your ear better than 95% of IEMs.  They also have big bass, especially after burn-in.  Just be sure to use the proper size tips for the best seal and they deliver great bass along with very good overall sound.

There is a CKS99i version which has a mic.
