The Basshead Club - Page 359  

post #5371 of 11259
I've seen a mention of the ATH-WS99 here once or twice, I am interested in picking up a pair myself. I guess not many have tried them especially on this thread since they're not yet available in the US (but should be soon).
Impressions are here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/650449/the-new-ws99-at-fan-thread

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 too and nobody around here sells Ultrasone. 

@ bareyb, if you ever get your hands on one of those Ultrasone Signature DJ, I would love to hear what you like about them.

 

also, just curious, what are your current favorite basshead headphones & why?? :)

 

also, yes, the M100 is a very nice basshead pair of headphones. They handle normal music pretty well as they are actually surprisingly well-balanced for such a solid bass emphasis, but once you throw on your electronic/trance/house/dubstep/hip hop, you legit want to jump around. the bass is legit. basshead heaven but versatile enough to handle t-swift =P

WS99 is more balanced (less bass, more mids/highs) and has better quality, more textured bass and mids than M-100

M-100 has more bass quantity and way better soundstage than WS99

 

Depending on how much of a basshead you are the WS99 may not have enough brute force for you.

Well what can you recommend that has enough brute force for a basshead? I am debating between the m100 and the mk2 but maybe you know of something better? under 150 bucks?

do let me know, thanks!

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


Pffft...forget the charts. Just buy the M-100. As far as the whole spectrum of sound (including awesome BASS) you WILL NOT be disappointed. The only issue could be comfort, but if you were good with the Q40 you'll be fine with the M-100. Plus the XL pads for them are coming...sometime this year.

IMO the Q40 is the best basshead can under 150 bucks. If you can afford $300, go for the M-100 which has a similar signature but better resolution, soundstage, mids texture, and comfort. Mk2 is too dark for my tastes. If you want lots of bass quantity without boominess or sacrificing mids or highs, I can't think of anything better than the M-100 without spending at least twice as much. If you want bass quality over quantity though, it's hard to beat the WS99.

Not necessarily, I can probably wear Q40 for the whole day, I often wear them like up to 4 hrs straight without issues. The V-Moda Crossfade LP2s (haven't tested M100 but they both have very similar pads) I could wear for aprox 1 hr max but my ears doesn't fit inside the ear cushion fully on the V-Modas while the Q40 fits nicely and the clamping force is nicely stopped by my cheekbones on Q40 without causing issues, the eartips got red/sore on LP2s for me after like 1 hr of use but I could feel it building up already after like 30 mins.

 

For a lot of people the narrow width of the inner circumference on the V-Moda pads are an issue, not every1 got elf ears, mine are a lot more round at top so typically I have against the average guy good results with round pads but oval shaped pads (slightly more round than completely oval) are always ideal in my eyes for the largest amount of people (why if I owned a headphone company oval shape would have the priority), hexagonal shaped pads aren't really benefitting for any1 ergonomical wise. For me, pads' priority should be in the ergonomic aspect first and foremost.

Oh man... I love this thread. You guys "get me". biggrin.gif

 

I use my HE500s for "overall".They have great defined Bass especially if you EQ, but every once in a while I start missing my Pro 900s. They were my previous favorite. I loved the sound pressure they produced and that sheer wall of tight hammering Bass. You just can't get that kind of sound pressure from an open back Planer.

 

I was VERY impressed with the Q40, it has GOBS of delicious Bass and I *think* it may even hit the really DEEP Bass notes better than the Pro 900s (from memory). If I drop the 30 Hz slider a dB or two they sounded really similar although the Pro 900s had less of the "in your head" sound and better sound field. The mids and vocals on the 900s were "not the best" though and they weren't as good for other Genres. If I could find something kind of in the middle of those two I think I'd be very satisfied.

 

It sounds like the Vmoda might be a good contender.  I never really had those on my radar as I had the misimpression that they were not a "serious" Basshead headphone and were more of a fashion statement along the lines of the "Beats" and their ilk. I need to read up on them more, but if they have all the slam of the Pro 900s and a little better sonic clarity through the mids and highs than the Q40 I think I'd be very happy with them. 

 

Can you guys who know, help me come up with a top 10 list of the most DANGEROUS headphones that are currently available (no discos please).  Here's four to get started (not in any particular order)...  What else has crazy good Bass like these? 

 

1. Q40

2. Pro 900

3. M-100

4. Signature Pro DJ

The Q40 appears to be more punchy and the M100 seems to be a bit more sub bass oriented based on response. Q40 will give u that slam some people want, I enjoy gobs of sub bass.

Both are respectable cans, the M100s being grossly overhyped I still kinda want them.

 

Below 100hz the M100 *Should* have a similar response to the UE6000 but appear to have more detail because of the 10-ish khz spike in the m100 response. This spike should also allow the M100s to soundstage a bit larger than the UE6000. I've also noticed the Q40s have a similar spike.

Something to watch out when choosing headphones are a spike in the 3-7khz range as the ear is sensitive here and sibilance can appear.

Should the UE6000 be added to the list of all time Bass Monsters? That's another one that was completely off my Radar.

The LP2s will give you more bass but can be a hint muddy. M100s clean that mud up, but come at a price (along with a bit of reduced bass).
