They definitely sound like an upgrade to the XB500 . BTW they cost $299 in America O.O

I also thought this was pretty funny. Can't post on here for various reasons. 

 

Edit: Maybe they use the regular Pro700 drivers. Can't really tell. 

 

Yeah, I believe the HP1000 is the same can as the AT PRO700 (MK1). I've never heard either, so I'm really unsure here. I'm going out with just reviews at the moment.

 

And bro, thanks for the link. Now I've got something else to pass my time with. biggrin.gif

I have the HFI 580s, and I agree that they are a really solid can.

 

I'm looking at the DJ1 PROs, though. These are supposed to be the same as the PRO 550, right?

 

HP700 sounds better than HP1000? That's quite a disappointment. How is the HP1000 in bass presentation? Is it punchy, and tight? Is the quantity greater than that on the HP700? Thanks, bro. smile.gif

Appearently these are the new king of quantity & "punch"-impact in bass, said to be even stronger in midbass (why they punch so hard) especially versus XB500 and similar subbass quantities. 

 

Soundstage is said to be very suprisingly great but the bass is too much unless you try to mod it or whatever if you're not an extreme basshead. Another good thing that Sony probably listened as far as older XB series criticism as these appear to isolate well from outside noise despite having those big bass vents down below, probably it's well isolated for the listener and and those vents are just opened for the driver (so it still probably leaks a bit but yea for me leakage isn't an issue but outside noise isolation is quite important for my home listening to shut off computer fans)

 

Although I'm quite skeptical that the XB800/900 is at least as bassy as the XB500, I'm sure it's certainly one of the bassier cans out there. Are you going to get one, RPG? You're definitely one of the biggest bassheads around, so if the XB800/900 is good for you, I'm definitely sold. L3000.gif

Anybody have a comparison on the Noontec Zoro and the JVC-HAS500, like unbiased. I recently got my Noontecs stolen, I had fallen in love to :( . but they both cost the same and I was about to rebuy the Noontec ..

What are good bassy IEM's that you guys would recommend?

post #4401 of 11259
Heir audio 3ai, very deep and textured bass. They are also a bit bass heavy.

Yeah, I would get the XB800s, but I would have to transplant the drivers into an enclosure that supports 50mm drivers before I even listened to it. I absolutely hate their new enclosures. I just can't help but think that some of the sound is being absorbed by the earpads, thus giving the listener a veiled listening experience. Plus, the X10s that are being auditioned at best buy, the earpad material is flaking up from so much use. So, the longevity of the earpads aren't all that great either. 

 

Maybe a good idea would be to get the XB800 and the XB700, and transplant the 800's drivers in the 700 enclosure. Too bad the price on the XB700 on Amazon is $250 now. They used to be around $80.

 

EDIT: Bought the XB700 for $50 on ebay.

There are a bunch of XB700s from China going inexpensively on ebay. Are these legit cans?
post #4404 of 11259

The person I got them from is selling them in California. They may be legit, but I'm mainly buying the headphones for the earpads. So, if the drivers are some chinese ripoffs, I could care less. They're going to sound worse than my modified AD900s anyways, legit or not.

I'm not that big basshead anymore, probably they would be too bassy for my needs. M-Audio Q40 + ZO2.1 still keeps me perfectly happy, don't need any more bass than this. I'm mastering a lot of hardstyle music these days and Q40 delivers both the quantity and quality needed for it.

 

Instead I'm more interested in going for a PSB M4U 1 if they would just be more readily available in europe.

In that case, you may find this upcoming release interesting....

How does the Cmoy BassBoost version compare to the ZO2? Would pairing a Fiio E11 and a Cmoy give good sound an amazing bass?

The ZO2.3 is perfect for that, while the Cmoy would provide a much less pronounced effect, and would most likely sound muddier, as it's not the design of the amplifier itself. smily_headphones1.gif

I think it's only ZO that somehow works fine double-amped, it has to be a more proprietary/different kind of approach than typical amps is my guess.

Wow these sounds promissing for me. :D I would just hope it was M4U-1 driver and same tuning (of course different casing will still provide slightly different result though) with just upped bass of say 2-3dB or so then I'd think it might be just perfect.

Hey, speaking of Hardstyle, is this your channel - http://www.youtube.com/user/EuphoricHardStyleZ? I've found some nice hardstyle tracks via that channel.

 

For me, my favorite combo for EDM is still E11 + HFI 580. Although I'm not a fan of hot treble, the Ultrasone cans really do deliver a bit of the top-end sparkle.
