I hear so many things about the XB700's bass. Too bad they look horrible. It looks like someone attached two truck tires onto a headband :p
Yeah! Come to think of it, it was YOU who put the bug in my ear about the Th-900s. Well I'm glad you did because they are exactly what I've been looking for. Oh, and It is NOT a Buick Enclave. How dare you! It's a Lexus GX470 Kid Hauler. A sexier vehicle doesn't exist.
They work well with my little FiiO amp, but I like how they sound better from my full sized m903. I haven't tried them directly out of my phone or iPod, so I can't comment on that.
TBH, the often overlooked JVC "Victor" DX1000 should also be a candidate. ;) This packs a huge amount bass for a ~$1000+ can, probably slightly more so than these even, I think some1 mentioned +12dB, whether how accurate that is, is another thing but it's known to be bassy for the price.

Who do you find when you go down to Stereo and Jaben. I always talk to Yen from Stereo and Kren Shaw from Jaben. I am spending quite a bit on a set of cans and was wondering if you got any chance of getting a discount if you like buy from them really often!
Thx, and sorry for not being to go down to Stereo with you. I'm going down on Monday to Stereo before Lunch Time but I kinda doubt you can make it, but thanks for your help anyway!
I hardly go down to Jaben, but I talk to Crenshaw from time to time. At Stereo, I love chatting with Kendric, Jun Yan, Joe, Ryan and Desmond.
Yeah, I'm sorry I can't accompany you to Stereo on weekdays before 7, as I'm working. Hope we can meet one of these days, though. :)
The original Skullcrushers sound really pathetic and the bass has like a veeeeery narrow 100Hz midbass spike and very sharp subbass rolloff. Luckily though any new product Skullcandy now introduces is part of their "premium sound" concept (basicly they got an audio engineer these days and doing in-house development instead of just importing chinese OEM stuff ^^) so at least this new Skullcrushers should sound a lot better than the old ones because those were really bad.
The Skullcandy headphones that are part of "premium sound" campaign are Hesh 2.0, Aviators, Mix Masters Mike which all measures significantly better than the other Skullcandy products. Not like these new Skullcandy products are any really impressive either but it's a noticable step forward
Yup, that narrow spike doesn't look very promising. Still, I am intrigued to try them out, at least for testing purposes. Have you owned them before?
