I was going to ask about the Skullcandy Mixmasters, but I hear they break stupid easily....no surprise since I burned through a pair of their Hesh headphones in a few months :'(

 

I don't mind the clamping force so long as my ears won't be in pain after a couple of hours.  Wonder if you can still get impactful bass with the Beyerdynamic pads?

You can, it's just less than stock, which is plentiful.  Guys here have said the HiFiMan velours are as comfy as the Beyers but have better bass.  YMMV but worth a try for $20.

The Beyer DT250 pads, to my experience, have noticeably more bass impact than the m50 pads on the pros. Beyer's dt770/880/990's pads are too large for the headphone (tested with beyer gel earpads), so you'll have to rig them up like I did in my pro700mk2 bass mod (sig link). The DT250 pads fit pretty well, but I'd advise you put something like cotton balls underneath to improve comfort, seal in any gaps (oval pads on circular headphones), and to get a better seal around your ears. The DT250 pads are pretty firm at first, but after a month or so, they feel like pillows on your ears.

Well, I was at my friends house, and I was messing with his Pro700MKII. Gave him a pair of DT250 earpads and we modified some microphone covers so that it acts like a grill pillow. Just imagine the cover that goes over the microphone cover cut up so that you only have the top part remaining (the curved part that is at the top of the mic). I stuffed that over the driver grill and underneath the earpads, and I have to say, those are the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn in my life. Keep in mind that he has something like a memory foam block velcroed to the headband. I thought my pseudo-AD2000s were comfortable. His headphones now feel like huge fuzzy boobs engulfing the sides and the top of your head. Once those DT250 earpads break in (stiff at first, SUPER plush after break-in), I'm gonna...oooohhh (shakes my head in jealousy with a hint of lust...).

 

I didn't even care that my headphones sounded better than the pros (one tier above them in every aspect, bar comfort). They were just so damn comfortable I really didn't care. I thought for like two seconds if I wanted to trade my headphones for his, then my senses came back, lol.

Excluding the Ultrasone Signature DJ, can anybody name me a Hp that has the same or more amount of midbass than the m100 while having better sound quality overall?

I can't think of one that is currently available, but this one has potential and should be coming out soon:

Do any fellow bass heads have the C5? I would like to know if the bass boost on it is enough to satisfy a bass head?

For a one-setting option it's a fairly versataile 6.5dB boost, that's pretty much what I'd go for myself too if I'd only be able to pick one bass boost setting. It's a very suitable amount from quantity vs quality perspective. It's also fairly wide bass boost but people has said it works very well and the amp itself is good. For a basshead with a desire with great overall sound quality, it should be among your top contenders.

really? i eq as much as 15 dB or even more with my m-100 confused_face.gif although thats sub-bass im talking about, mid bass only gets ~ 3 dB, 5 at the most.

 

funny, i was just talking about eqing the m-100 on their own thread...

Well if so you're a person who prefers quantity over quality, then I'd only recommend digiZoid ZO as it's said to be working fairly good with M100 too. If miceblue which isn't a basshead by any stretch and has tried several high regarded portable amps in their price bracket such as O2 and C5 and still says ZO sounds fairly good with M100, I'd believe him.

well there are some shades of grey between those two... for one, i want alot of bass, but i want alot of good quality bass. second, one of the reasons why i like the m-100 so much, and prefer them over my dt 770s is that the bass doesnt bleed too much into the rest of the music, despite eqing so much. is that why you say that if i eq more than 6.5 dB im giving up on quality? because it muddys up the rest of the frequencies?

 

anyhoo, thanks for the suggestion, but i dont like hardware eq. not enough control. as i have mentioned, i only eq the mid bass a little, while i eq the sub bass ALOT. a function that i wouldnt have with the ZO, which boosts 300 Hz and lower equaly. but yea, id take miceblues word any day.

Why the heck haven't they done over-ears with double drivers yet (micro sub (20-100hz) + neutral driver (100-20k Hz))?? It makes no sense! I have yet to see (if at all) casual one speaker (one-way, single driver) which could reproduce properly whole freq range. It reminds me of these crappy FM radios. Either way bloated bass (no clarity, sounds like 90kbps), or no bass at all, HPs are currently not very far from this definition as well. They managed to make basshead cans to decently reproduce mids and highs (barely), but when bass kicks in, it's either bass alone (taming everything else as one driver simply can't cope with sub-bass + every single remaining tone at the same time..), or HP does not have enough of it to even be called a basshead's HP in the first place. Cans with only slight emphasis on bass are nowhere near this definition. Even a "neutral" HP can have emphasis on bass to some degree.

From $200 upwards you basically get up to $200 worth HP + EQ. There are no major differences at all when looking at how they were built (well, maybe a couple exceptions like orthos, but considering it's price that's insanity). 

 

PS. I think closed cans are actually starting to piss me off biggrin.gif

While open-back means no fun...

 

This sucks. biggrin.gif
