lol... i really hope this discussion doesn't devolve into what dubstep artists are legit & what artists are too-mainstream/pop or not-innovative enough. it's cool when an artist is experimenting w/ new stuff, but that doesn't necessarily means it sounds that great. also, i think it's nice that artists like skillex broke out to the mainstream as it expose people to sound. a win for everyone.

To each their own.

Has anyone compared the UE6000 to the M100? Both look good on paper, I've heard the UE6000 but not the M100. How do they compare for sub bass? A few opinions here would be nice.

Thanks in advance guys.

Paper is useless, unless you've actually listend :D, but your asking and not making a statement. [Some idiot doesn't discrouaged me from getting athW1000xs because they look bad on paper... my hifiman hm601 looks like it should xPLODE on paper, but it's amazing so  :D]

 

Still I hear good things about the UEs

I think measurements play a role, both the ue6000 and m100 have a bassy presentation that looks nice without being overly bright. I think the w1000x are a bad choice because they have considerably higher distortion than the ue and m100 and also have rolled off sub bass.

well duh they have rolled off sub bass, they are not Bass head cans. In fact my dt 880s have some SERIOUS rolled off sub bass as well [which is why I don't use them for sub bass]

 

Non the less, the bass hits about 0 around 50hrz or so. so THese are NOT edm cans or even bass head cans which is why I got them [my Xb 700's and my dt 990s can handle all edm thank u :D]

 

Still with my indeed G3 Hybrid tube I can boost teh sub bass... but I would NEVER do that. Then there is my thicker Mullard Tubes which can increase that bass as well, not to mention I'm getting L3000 pads which will tighten the bass a little and minimize that roll off,

 

non the less those woodies r not bass heavy nor should they be! And the rollled of sub is fine when ur listening to Classical Jazz, instrumental rock or really any No edm genre. I MIGHT have some issues with Nu Jazz, but most Nu Jazz bands keep things above 50hrz ;3

The Q40 lost a speaker, so I think since I have to deal with shipping anyway, I'll try one more brand. Open to suggestions. Looking for highest level of MAGNITUDE and quality I can find. Right now my favorite cans are my HE500s but sometimes I just need to have some Bass I can really feel. I do not find the level of Bass in the Pro 900 or the Q40 to be excessive. In fact, I love it. So the more the merrier, as long as it's quality Bass with a little texture left to it. That would be the perfect Basshead 'phone for me. smile.gif

From the reviews it sounds like they put some pretty good Basshead bass.  Have you compared the UE6000 to other Basshead Phones? How do they stack up?

I've only heard the UE6000 at Best Buy, so I can't really say much about them, but the M100 was really legit. Bass-emphasis, but mids/trebles still very clear. A lot of low-end frequency extension. Very tight and accurate bass. I really loved the M100s sound signature, and I would highly recommend that you try it.

I see a lot of people recommending the Vmodas. Do they have anything near the sheer AMPLITUDE (I mean this in a good way) of the Q40 or Pro 900?  I'm off to check Golden Ears to see if I can find a chart for those... Thanks for the tip.

Couldn't find a chart on the M-100s. Are these TRUE Basshead 'phones? As in Q40 Pro 900, Basshead Bass? I have HE500s for refinement. I'm looking strictly for an ill mannered brute...

 

Any thoughts on how these compare to the VModa Crossfade LP2's or is M100 the clear way to go?

Yes, but it isn't cheap- the Ultrasone Signature DJ, the ultimate audiophile- grade basshead can and my primary headphone.

That's what I wanted to know my friend. That is exactly what I'm looking for. Off to research...Have you heard them compared to the Pro 900s? I really liked those.

Whoa... eek.gif   You are a lucky dog.  tongue.gif

 

Where did you buy yours from? On Amazon they only have ones available to be shipped from Japan. If I could find a dealer willing to accept a return, I would love to try them. They are too expensive to purchase without listening to and nobody around here sells Ultrasone.

To my ears, I don't like the PRO 900 at all due to harsh highs and overly recessed mids.  Sig DJ mids and highs make you feel like you are there with the artist. Vocals are slightly recessed, but also sound amazing, particularly female vocals- incredibly lifelike and detailed.  The best I have ever heard in a closed headphone and certainly in a basshead can.  Highs are well extended but never harsh.   The build quality is solid with quality materials and I find them incredibly comfortable even with a good clamp which makes them ideal for portable use.

 

I found them on Ebay for $700 US new.  I believe B&H photo sells them for $1,000.
