The Basshead Club - Page 308

I've said it before, headphones when out of the house are like glasses on your face, hat on your head, scarf, whatever - it's a head accessory. It has to at least lean a little bit towards looking decent with your general style.

In the house is entirely different. I walk around in pajamas and don't give two hoots how my hair or beard looks, so I wouldn't care how my headphones look either, but if I'm making this part of what I'm wearing out in the public, it has to have some semblance of your style in tact.

 

I think transplanting high quality drivers into Hello Kitty cans, though would be fun/ny, but the housing has a lot to do with the sound too ;) I don't think M-100 drivers would purr in the Hello Kitty housing haha. Who knows, it might be some miracle of an improvement. I still wouldn't wear them out of the house haha

I never said the M-100 isn't stylish enough to wear outside. I do it regularly myself. I guess I should have said I wouldn't wear the HelloKitty M-100 driver transplant, even if the housing DID make improvements to the M-100 drivers.

İ've got Ultrasone Pro900 and this things got no sub-bass IMO. I use that with ipod video and touch. Is it about amping or character of this headphone ?

post #4610 of 11169

It is the character of the headphone. They are mid-bass cannons.

Hey Malevolent, how do your XB1000s compare to the Pro700MKII?

Any V-MODA can is stylish enough to be worn outside. cool.gif The Hello Kitties, however, leave a lot to be desired in terms of style. But who knows, different strokes for different folks. Just ask our buddy Trae. biggrin.gif

They have decent sub-bass that will show up if you amp them well. Like SoundFreaq said, they are famous for their mid-bass punch. Are you amping your PRO 900s?

I'm going to have to give them a head-to-head later for that, but off hand, I think the XB1000 has similar quantity in mid-bass, and noticeably greater sub-bass rumble. The PRO700MK2 is also darker in tonality than the XB1000, which is already dark, as per the XB-line.

 

Both benefit greatly from amping, and will scale well with EQs and bass boost amps (e.g. ZO2.3, E11).

 

Anyway, I'll be sure to give them a listen later (haven't heard the XB1000 in sometime, tbh), and will provide you with more impressions.

 

Btw, are you looking to get the XB1000 too? smile.gif

No. But im thinking about that. Maybe e11 or 2stepdance ?

post #4615 of 11169

Yeah. I've been on and off on the XB1ks for a while now, and I might as well take the plunge before they're all gone. I just gotta wait until my monies are situated.

I have an E11, and the PRO 900 pairs well with it. Bass quantity is increased, especially in mid-bass. General sound quality doesn't suffer, but you're still going to need to EQ the PRO 900 to get the mid-range to show up.

I remember some guy putting hello kitty stickers on his Pro 900. Looked a bit funky. Nothing I would wear personally.
post #4618 of 11169

That was my Pro700mkII. Good times...

I like the look of those Aiaiai headphones. The red goes well together with the black imo.
