Note: Demo @ Futureshop. Only 16 ohms, they can be powered easily by a dollarstore MP3 player ahaha

 

Hmm,  that's an interesting can. Will audition it when I have the time. smile.gif

Hmm, I may be wrong, but I think you're the first person around here with the X10. If you have heard the XB800/900, how do they compare with the X10? Or any of the other XB models for that matter. Thanks!

Malevolent , you will probably not like them if you care about SQ! They are like beats, times 2 in bass and minus 100 in SQ so keep that in mind. And i have heard the Xb900 and they reach hella deep. Nice boom. Fast, not to much decay. But accurate and face melting bass basshead.gif

Or do they have the same frequency response line?

 

They are similar sounding, but the LP has a bit more mid-bass boom to its sound. If you're contemplating between the 2, just go with the LP2. You can always compensate for the slight loss in bass with an EQ/amp.

He has the LPs and was comparing cans with the FR chart for the LP2 because he is looking in to a new pair smily_headphones1.gif

Hmm, most of the Beats cans are already very bassy, so this will be an interesting can to audition.

Oh, my bad. I didn't see anywhere that he mentioned that he owns the Crossfade LP. ph34r.gif

Yes they are very unique.
I took them apart and the magnet is 3/4 the size of the diaphragm ! EQ the bass all the way wink.gif it hurt to hear so much bass redface.gif
And its okay !

Does it make any sense if my amp/Dac costs more than my Hp?

Well I will join you as soon as my SoundBlaster ZxR finally arrives.... already waited like 3-4 weeks >_<  $250 DAC/AMP + $100 AMP (digiZoid ZO2) + M-Audio Q40 (~$100). 

 

I say if you find some headphones which REALLY fits your preferences, the price isn't often a good indicator. It could be wiser to just improve the headphone's sound you like than going out in the deep water again and hope you will find something meeting your preferences again which could possibly lead to a spiral of buying and returning before you hopefully find something better. For me I can probably count plausible contenders that will satisfy me more than Q40 no matter cost, on one of my hands! :p

Well. I'm in a serious dilemma here. I really love the the hd650 but its bass I just meh and being a basshead, BASS MATTERS ALOT! Then I heard the d7ks are bassier and would solve my prob but then the words harsh treble keeps getting thrown around and I am truly afraid of that. And at the d7ks price range we got the LCD-2 and now I'm thinking of CIEMs. This sux.

I don't know how different D7Ks are compared to Denon D2Ks but I just got a pair of modded D2Ks and at least to my ears the treble is not harsh at all. Brighter than my Q40's, yes better upper mids as well but certainly not harsh treble. So at way less cost you have a choice. I also found a D5K for sale in the mid $400's on the for sale forum along with a few D2Ks.

These definitely are basshead cans..........not quite as rumble as Q40's but close. Me like......way more comfy.

Thx for your input. I have heard the d5k and d2k. The d5k is muffled sounding and a bit fatiguing and slightly closed sounding compared to the hd650 but the soundstage is terrific for a close headphone.

Was wondering if the d7ks would smooth out the highs, tighten the bass and make the soundstage ever so more expansive and with that great wood exterior, I got myself a winner.

There's a good handful of headphones that shouldn't be on that list, the HFI-780 included. I've compared them to the M50s blue box, Pro700mk2, and my modified ad900 (ad2000 drivers with beyerdynamic gel earpads+cotton), and all of them put the 780s to shame, and it's not slight either. I couldn't get any bass out of the 780s unless I smashed the cups to my ears, and even then, there wasn't that much. Heck, even my coby earbuds sound better than the HFI-780s, and have more bass than them when you push the earbuds to your ears.

 

I wonder why Parall3l didn't update the OP with Malevolent's new list? The link on the OP is still showing the list from September 2012.

JVC S500/S600  definitely should be on the list as well. wink.gif

post #5955 of 11259

Would Shure SRH840s pass as medium basshead cans? Does it sound wafer thin like the AKG K167s or does it have a satisfying kick to it?
