Denon D2000/D5000/D7000/HP700/HP1000, JVC DX700/1000 and the Fostex TH600/900 are your answer.

For a basshead with a desire with great overall sound quality, it should be among your top contenders.
That's good to hear, I'm looking for good bass quantity without sacrificing quality. Ideally I would get the Verza but that's $650. Hopefully the C5 will be a big upgrade from the e11.

I am on the verge of ordering these, I just have a few questions.

 

1. Can I cover the 'openings' on the headphones with electrical tape to prevent sound leakage?

2. Do these have better, same, or worse sound clarity and seperation than the Crossfade LPs?

3. Do these have even more bass than the Crossfade LPs?

4. Is the headband really comfortable also? I need some clarification on that...

5. Overall, would these beat the Crossfade LPs?

6. Do these have alot of sub-bass?

7. Do these have alot of mid-bass?

8. Are the synth-type sounds on EDM clear?

 

If you can answer ASAP, that would be very helpful.

I've had two 1000 watt 12 inch subs sitting behind me in my truck, nothing really compares to bass hitting your chest instead of your ears.

It might help some people if you added that you're talking about the xb500 instead of only copying your post from the xb500 appreciation thread. Not everyone can read minds wink.gif

 

I can answer #1: You can, but you will loose some soundstage, recess the midrange, and lose bass quantity.

Am I going mad or do the Sony MDR-1Rs have more bass than AKG K167s?

 

And dare I say punchier bass compared to the PRO700s? I definitely feel like the bass on these cans are a bit more controlled but refined and present compared to the PRO700.

Wow, I can't believe I didn't think about that.

 

For now, other people can just ignore what I said on this thread :P

Well, if they had less aggressive highs I would snatch them up in a blink I an eye.

EDIT: Why can't there be more \_ type of headphones of good quality (better than hd650). That would be IMO better than V shaped ones.

If you're talking about the XB500, I can help answer a few questions.

 

2) They are about the same.

 

3) Slightly more sub-bass. Mid-bass quantity is about the same. Maybe XB500 has a little bit more. I'm kind of lazy to pull them both out now, so I'm going from memory.

 

4) Nope, the headband isn't very comfortable, but the plush pillows are. Besides, the overall headphone is quite light and the weight is well distributed. You won't really feel the headband much.

 

5) They are equally as bassy and both are dark headphones with lost treble. I would say they are about the same.

 

6) Yup.

 

7) Yup.

 

8) Bass drowns out a lot of the sound, but EDM sounds pretty ok on them. It's a shame the highs are muted like on the Crossfade LP.
