Yes, but I don't think any demo set is burned in for 600 plus hours! Anyways, i would head down to the store one day and test out every god damn headphones that are recommended by headfiers, the salesperson and my instinct! And I am goin to purchase that god damn headphone: Here is my current TO-AUDITION LIST: Beats Pro, Beats Mixr, Denon D600/5000/7000/7100, M 100, Senns IE80, Westone 3. Oops I Juz realized why I have not purchased one yet, waiting for the pro 500, Yamaha. Hmmm.... I will just have to go down to te store and pick my fav. Oh yeah, any thoughts on the Skullcandy MMM?

I'm pretty sure you'll forget about the burn-in after 600 hours. After what I went through trying to repair my AD900s (went through 4 drivers to get it to sound properly), I pretty much convinced that burn-in is a placebo effect. Aside from the internal defects, all of them sounded the same, and the original drivers had around 150hrs of "burn-in". I also read somewhere that with some silver cable you have to wait around 600-1000hrs for it to burn in completely...I think not. Unless these people golden ears that can hear gamma rays, I don't think someone's going to say, "Hmmm, after listening to these headphones for 600 hours, I believe that the sonic fidelity of the drivers have finally reached their peak."

For me, they definitely are a basshead can. They may not have a huge mid-bass slam or greater sub-bass rumble than some of the big hitters, but the M-100 certainly delivers a good, bass-oriented sound.

The D2000 is not a headphone that I would consider strong in mid-bass. The bass in general is certainly attenuated to provide greater "oomph", but it is nowhere near a mid-bass heavy headphone. I felt the same with the D5000 and the D7000.

 

If you want to try a mid-bass oriented headphone, you can audition the Crossfade LP2, Crossfade M-100, PRO700MK2, HFI 580.

+1 So there isn't any high end (d5k price range) bass head can where the bass is really there and prominent and hits hard when needed while the mids and highs are really good?

I actually thought they hit hard! Maybe I am not a bass head, lol I am truly confusing myself now but I love bass, epic......

Jus wanted to share experience when I paired a z02.3 with a beats pro at stereo and it truly was subwoofer strapped to the head type of bass! No Kid, I think if you double amp them all you can hear is bass.

Hi, I'm looking for a bass headphone for listening to EDM. Budget is around $150, and I am deciding between crossfade LP(1) and m80. Q40 and XB series are out of the question as they are black-colored and they get really hot on my ears. I would prefer headphones with white-colored variation. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Thanks.

What about Beyerdynamic DT770pro? I think they are around 150$ these days.

For cans, there are a few headphones that produce a lot of bass - Sony's XB series, V-MODA'S Crossfade LP/LP2, Reloop's RHP-10/20, JVC's Xtreme Xplosives series, and even the Beats models. Of course, quality greatly varies with this lot.

It's not about color. It's about the material. Q40 is some of the least sweat-inducing headphones I've used (about the only very good thing about this particular low quality pleather which I've also had experience with with cheap Sennheiser headphones, it just doesn't make your ears sweat!), I wear them for hours without getting hot ears. M80 or LP1 makes your ears warmer, I had the LP2 and my ears got sweaty in about 1 hr.

For me, the D2000 has punchy bass and delivers a relatively clean bass presentation. It is not a mid-bass heavy can, though. For example, the M-100 has greater mid-bass than the D2000. I still don't know why the staff at Stereo mentioned that they are a neutral headphone.

This may sound like an odd suggestion to some, but I would suggest auditioning the Monster N-tune.  They are on ear and available in different colors.  They also have some solid mid-bass with decent overall sound from what I remember.

Ok, i understood what you guys meant by the devon d5ks being not bassy. I checked out headphone info's FR and if i took the senns hd800 as the neutral standard, the d5k have a +5db in the bass while the m100 have like +8-9db while the senns ie8 iem have crazy bass with +20db and the beats pro having +16-17 db. Interesting, cos the d5ks bass quantity is slightly short of the beats with much more clarity and resolution and better mids and better everything in the world compared to the beats (Esp. noticeable with lossless music)  

 

Hmmm... If I were to ask for suggestions for headphones with better overall sound quality than the m-100 and including bass (quality and quantity) and have an asking price BELOW USD650.

From your posts, it sounds like everything leads you back to the D5K and you are looking to justify purchasing them.  Clearly, those are the headphones you want.  As you said, they won't be available forever, so go for it.
