Bring a bag to put the cable in and don't move too suddenly.

If you want to put your toe in the water with a new value-priced basshead can that sounds fantastic (but will distort at the highest volumes) check out the thread for the NuForce HP-800.

It's not in my country and even if I consider starting low, I wouldn't start so low!

I don't think the nu-force can be as good as the d5ks and any other headphones abv 400 bucks. Yes it may have the best bang of the buck but becos I don't get to try it and I dun think it can be even half the goodness of a 650 dollar headphones I think I am going to think a little more.

So anyone has experience with the d5ks and know of something which are better without being uncomfortable. Uncomfortable is loke the m-100 for me cos Im wearing specs. Dun forget abt the bass! I'm open to anything from IEMs to superaurals to around ears. I have a feeling the denon series are the best closed cans arnd cos anything higher up are open, agree? Any views on the Westone 3 and IE80? Any suggestions on supernaturals? I am thinking abt starting in the upper mid-fi section below 400usd but if everyone agrees the d5ks are gd I will grab them now cos its already discontinued.

It still won't fit in your pocket with your DAP.

Oops! Forgot to tell u I've got a bag for the cable, yeah, my idea is similar to yours.

Btw what's the phones on the right? I know the left one is the d5k. It seems that u own them so have u ab them to any other headphones like iems and superaurals

Sound great. I like that they keep the microphonics low and they're still in my price range. I think I might pick them up.

D2000 on the left, D5000 on the right.

 

The Audio Technica A900X is quite good, but lacks sub-bass compared to the Denons. The Sony MH1C has loads of quality bass, but the worst cable in the world. The IE80 is quite bassy, but the bass at stock muddies the mids and the highs are congested.

 

EDIT: I should make it clear that I'm not a basshead, but I like to listen to music where a strong bass body is vital.

quite funny as i could not sleep tonight, so i decided to do a A/B comparison between ie80 and mh1. and guess what!? the mh1 easily plays all the way down to about 22-25hz. the ie80 starts playing at 32! as for quantity the mh1 has about the quantity in sub bass, that the ie80 has at about half opened bass screw but without bloating in the upper bass registers. another thing i registered is that the mh1 has better soundstage depth but is a tiny tad smaller in width. mids, separation and highs are on a similiar level to my ears. so we have a clear winner. mh1 is also more comfortable to my ears.

I thought the IE80 had the wider soundstage of the two. However at stock, the MH1C has much nicer and cleaner bass. I've modded my IE80 and it now sound much nicer in all areas, although the mid bass is reduced further.

I have the Westone 3 and Shure SE215. Both are known to be relatively bass-friendly IEMs. The mid-bass hump on the W3 is fairly impressive, and has good extension on both ends.

If I'm not wrong the se215 and Westone 3 are in different leagues, so u mean their sound is similar?
