Now however, I just got a Schiit Magni and even though it is a great amp it needs the extra bass only a basshead can understand so THAT takes the place of the E-11.  It sounds even better than the E-11, as it should.  

What I found the double amping adds is better overall depth of sound, bass at low volume levels (almost like a loudness switch has been set), and obviously max bass at all volumes.   

The purists have criticized me/us for this, but really, it's about individual preference and what works for YOU.  I could care less what they say.   I love the sound.  

Ok I'll definitely try it then smily_headphones1.gif Thanks for the advice (and nice Schiit you got there, you must have a so deep rumble).

Gopanthersgo I need to wait a bit before doing anymore buying, but thank you for the info, I keep you in mind wink.gif

Talking about warm phones, does wood brings that much difference with headphones? In a hollow body / acoustic I can understand, but I've more imagined that these would compare to, well, Stratocaster?

What kind of wood is the best then? Heavy, light, dense, fine? "Wet", "dry"?

I'm not sure about that but it seems like most warm headphones are woodies. (Ala D5K, LCD-2)

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!

Okay. I understand that a lot better. They definitely aren' what I'd call dark, and I also expected more Bass, similar in scope to the Q40s. These are more like the Pro 900's Bass, but with a deeper bottom end. I think I"m happy with the level they chose though. I've EQ'd them up for more and I always end up turning it back down because it messes with the balance with the Vocals.

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 

:D I am here at long last.

 

Panda mk III at your service.

 

Tight as in more refined?

 

Glad you're content with the w1000x!

Oh my gosh! I totally forgot to say this. When I was auditioning some "high-end" cans, I was amazed by the D7100 bass. The d7.1k isn't liked here (headfi) because of the overwhelming bass, but since no amount of bass is too much for us, those who got some cash to spare for high-end bassy closed (actually isolating unlike their previous line) which actually sound good ( comparing to other closed cans). Just some info: It isn't exactly very warm (which is how I like it), but I'm considering to give these hps a shot because of its oh all so awesome bass.....
 

Well-to-do headfiers outdo who are craving for bass and want some isolation and want good sound (even out of an ipod), the d7.1k should be on your list!

I have not heard the D7100, but did briefly own the D600 which uses the same driver and has a similar sound.  I felt the bass was like orthos where is it present, but there is just no punch.  They didn't reproduce that club or home theater experience where you feel the air moving from the bass like you do with the Sig DJ, M-100, Q40 or other dynamic, punch basshead cans.

Yes, those are a hurricane. The D600/D7100 is a seabreeze.

If anyone feels like maxing out their credit card, I just received the V-Moda Verza yesterday and have been listening to my Sig DJs and M-100s with Verza's generous bass boost.  The descriptive words that first come to mind would have me temporarily banned from Head-fi, so let's just say I am in basshead audiophile nirvana.
