The Basshead Club - Page 372  

post #5566 of 11259
Sorry guys, but I'm disappointed with the sig DJ. It isn't burnt in yet but I doubt it is a night an day difference. It maybe underpowered but I ain't sure, using a p4 warbler with iPhone 4S. It lacks the warmth of a denon the bass is tight and punchy but slightly ever laid back. It laks te opened of a hd650 oh well. Seems like in gonna get the d7k

EDIT: The sound quality is great, but it isn't to my sonic signature.

Makes sense, guess you like a warmer sound sig? I know that Barry categorized it as an audiophile can with massive, amazing bass, so maybe it's a bassier HE400, in which HD650s feel bassier due to being warmer overall, while the HE400 is really tight clean and crisp sounding...

Well it is somewhat Bassy, like more than the hd650. But I think when I plugged it into the p4 the bass somewhat reduced. Well, my best bet would be te recessed lower mids, it make it sound colder than i would have preferred. The bass is pretty good though. The highs are slightly very very slightly fatiguing because I prefer dark cans. Te detail/clarity is pretty good (lcd2 still beat it here) but I think I just like the organic warmth I woodies better. smily_headphones1.gif

nice to finally see you here Violin, welcome welcome.

 

Panda San used to roam around here to but psh he's done and gone left us q.q

 

non the less, I like the bass on my w1000x BUT I like my TIGHT leaner bass on the Dt 880 and 990 respectivly. So for me, I might dig the sig pro if it's a very lean and clean kinda amp! 

 

I'm not too to crazy about OMG WARM cans, the Mad Dog was to warm for me, and the w1000x, is just right <3. But while it's bass has a nice blend of lush and tight, it's still not open can bass, so no me gusta

I don't consider the HE-400 a basshead headphone. To me it's just another case of audiophiles who don't normally listen to bassy music or use bassy headphones calling it bassy (like the M50).

It will give you a decent amount of bass if you eq it, and bass boosting amp will help bring the bass quantity close to entry level basshead.

What was your impression of the Sig Pro's?

That's kind of what I was thinking somebody would say. Well I have the ipod classic 160 GB, M-100 and a Fiio E11. Where do I go from here? Should I double amp with the ZO2.3?

Well my Solid State came in, it's very clean and smooth, the enitre sound has tighten and sound stage has widen once again... the bass is really nice! Almost if not as tight as the Dt 880 on a THICK tube lol, still the mids r not as intimate as I'd like, upper mids r great lower mids have taken a hit... the L3000 pads for teh w1000s are spoused to increase the sound stage [more] tigten the bass smooth the treble and foward the mids, so they should pair well with the Solid State.

 

btw I'm using a Matrix M-Stage v2 [with upgraded power[ and a L4990 Op Amp, the mids are still very nice that would be the can ofc. But not as thick and sexual as with my LEAN tube

 

still good purcahse... let's pray my car does not break dwn e.e

Yes. They are definitely bassier than the HE400s or the HE500s, but less Bassy than something like a Q40. I think if they had pumped up the Bass any more, we'd be losing the Audiophile qualities in the mids and vocals and those are what makes these worth a thousand bucks. Best vocals I've heard in a "Basshead" 'phone. Period. Sounds like the singer's Microphone cable is connected directly to your head! 

 

I'm trying not to be too enthusiastic because I know I'm still in the "honeymoon" phase with these, but so far, I can't get enough of them. I'll keep you guys posted once I've had more time with them. So far, couldn't be happier.

Yeah, based on their response I was worried the peak (i think it was between 3-4khz) to make them sound a bit hard. However, I like darker headphones too.

You may want to read some other reviews or listen to them for yourself. They are smooth as silk to my ears. Some reviewers have even said they are TOO smooth.  I'm not saying he didn't hear what he heard, but his description doesn't really match up with any other impressions I've seen. When he said the Bass was "laid back" I had to wonder if we were listening to the same headphone. I mean, everyone is welcome to their opinion, but I'd look at the overall ratings and not put too much faith in one person's opinion (including mine).  Not everyone hears things the same way... or describes things in the same way.  wink.gif

Okay the bass is there, but it wasn't like as much as I thought(isn't a bad thing),there's good detail retrieval and clarity but IMO I find it lacking openness and also maybe not as warm as some of the Japanese woodies. Sorry if I mislead anyone. I like dark-warm-bassy cans, which sound clear, detailed and open. The Si DJ is a GREAT Hp in SQ, I just don't like the sonic signature(I prefer the lushness of the HD650/Denon Dxxx/LCD-2).
It is a great can I repeat again just not to my sonic signature!
