I found the bass is quite detaied and pronounced but it doesnt have much kick or actual body, like Bassheads want. It is nice for other genres that require nice, soothing bass smily_headphones1.gif

That's what I've been saying!
Anyone want to know what I'm doing atm (involves lots of bass)?

Interesting... thanks

 

What kind of genres would you recommend it for?

Read me review on the SRH750DJ, they are very similar in sound smily_headphones1.gif
But classical, vocals, pop, folk and r'n'b

I think the Future Sonics Atrio X (AKA XtremeMac FS1) should be added to the first post. They don't get a lot of press around here but for their usual selling price of $30, they're among the best sounding IEMs I've heard for the price, not to mention they have some of the strongest but best textured and controlled bass I've ever heard (even compared to the MG7 M5s and Miles Davis Tributes, which I also have).

They're on ear and also look terrible lol.

 

But i like vocals. That was a big problem for me with pro700mk2s, most of the indie rock/pop songs i listened to had mediocre vocals. I can't get an all out basshead can because i listen to a variety of genres, and most basshead cans are too muddy and dark for anything other than electronica lol.

Most Senns have very good balance. I'd look at the HD439. Outstanding for vocals and classic.

Would you suggest any good bass earphone under 100$ (prefer iem with good isolation) for ZO 2.3. I want to use it to listen some house music (progressive, trance, remix, dance) or Kpop. Thank you bigsmile_face.gif

And if you can go up a bit the fxz200 is my hands down recommendation.

Windows bass boost + ElectriQ(free) + XB800 =  basshead.gif

 

Holy crap, even I cant go all the way up on ElectriQ. And ElectriQ handles EQing very well L3000.gif

So after much reading I narrowed down my choices to 2 cans :the Logitech UE6000's and the Beyerdynamic 770 dt pro's.

 

These for the following reasons my ears are to big for the v-moda's cushions (ear heigth of 7.5cm) and the audio technica's or Sony's don't look good IMO ;)

 

Now I got some little questions:

-Does the Logitech still gain from amping (got a fiio e11) Or will it make no diffrence.

-And which one scores better in your guys opinion. (Mostly listen to Drum and Bass(Neurofunk, Jump Up, Dark and Liquid), Dubstep(Bouncy: Requake and Old skool:Coki,Mala,DMZ))

Have you considered the M-Audio Q40 with Beyer pads? They would be an excelent choice.

M40's are still my favorite basshead can though my Denon D2000 is probably it's equal with much better comfort and quality. 

 

One thing to consider - the velour pads may tend to knock the bass down - at least it did for me, so it is worth trying but you may end up back to a leather pad.  Which means you don't have to use the stockers since they are not great, you can try others like the HiFiMan leathers or Brainwav items (which is what I'm in the process of doing when they arrive next week or so).  I also have a pair of Beyer gels (leather) on order but could be weeks or months before I see them from Germany.
