Seriously, I'm impressed. This S-Logic I guess is why the soundstage sounds so wide, and the bass is so crisp and clean. And the treble IS bright but with 51 year old ears it is actually about perfect.

Geez, if the Sig DJ is THAT much better than these, how good will they sound?!

I know it's first impressions, but my gut feel with D600 was the same, as was with the Mad Dogs (in that case I knew right away I didn't like them). These are keepers.

Next up....to get the SECOND KA-5700 that I found for my office.

 

 

Guess it's safe to say they're probably brighter than my already-bright DJ1.   :(  Bright headphones hurt my ears.

 

lmao Andrew the Audiophile............wonder what he'd say during intercourse?  "Are you really moaning in 128kbps MP3?  I wanna divorce".

LOL! biggrin.gif

 

Anyway, I've just got myself the JVC HA-S400. It's not expensive, but it really sounds great for its price. Haven't had much play time so far, but it's definitely worth considering as a decent, inexpensive basshead can.

 

JVC's really doing something right these days. Auditioned the HA-FXZ100 and 200 as well, and I'm really impressed with what I've heard. smile.gif

I heard a jvc 200 maybe a 300 my friend paid like $10 for it and well it didn't sound good... at all. But it was a low end can so no reason to hate teh whole company. I'd actually like to try some of their mid tier'd cans. As I'd LOVE to have the Jvc Hx 1000! Mmmm, I now REALLY don't lIke my xb700... it's WAY to bassy so I'm hoping the 1000 [a FAR FAR future purchase will bring the refinment the xb really needs, while still having that THUNDEROUS sub bass] Sadly as a bass head I've started to care a little more about air in my highs and push an feeling in my mids. That being said the xb 700 is still my favorite Dub Step can, it's tight when it needs to b and thunerous when it should! But I've taken to vocal dnb lately so my dub step tracks rn't gettin much play!

I actually had a pair of JVC headphones I got from Walmart for $20 before I upgraded to my DJ1.  They weren't actually bad at that price, but the sound was very bloated and the bass wasn't as good....then again $20 got you a pair of headphones that had a better response than the $300 Beats Studio.

Nice, sadly though guys I'd like to let you guys know I'm having to sell my Indeed G3, it's a GREAT Hybrid Amp for use with bass heavy cans! The tube brings out the mids in the those V shapped cans will smoothing peaky treble and tightening bass.

 

Still though, I'm still impressed by the Koss Porta Pro! Not a bass head can but... it had about as much quanity as my dt 990s! [the quality was ofc pretty rough] still though... Koss impresses me with those little cans!

Just popping in to say that the bass boost on the E12 works great with the PRO900. A bit too much power on those though, even the lowest volume setting is a bit high for me

I have added a few which I think are good basshead cans. If there are some headphones that you feel should be added to this list, please do share them with us! Remember, there is no such as thing as too much bass! L3000.gif

 

Denon

D400

DN-HP700

DN-HP1000

D1001

D1100

D2000

D5000

D7000

Thanks for updating the list - i've quoted just the Denon's here because i'm interested if anyone has heard their "urban raver" line yet?

 

Many of the headphones listed here are no longer produced, and the only one's still listed on the Denon website are the D1100.

 

Urban Raver Series:

http://usa.denon.com/us/product/pages/productlanding.aspx?pcatid=headphones%28denonna%29&catid=urbanraver%28denonna%29

 

I'd also be interested to hear from anyone with a "large head". I wear glasses and I find the V-Moda Crossfade LP2s to be a bit uncomfortable, so I guess an upgrade to the M100 is out of the question since they are the same dimensions and the earcups appear to be the same size. :(

 

For now i'm happy with my DT770s but they are showing significant signs of wear (the top of the earpads are a bit sweat stained, the beyerdyanmic writing on the side of the cups is all but gone, sometimes they make a "crack" sound when i put them on or take them off, etc), Oh well, they still sound great. :D

 

They are easily the most comfortable headphones i've ever had, so does anyone know of headphones with similar earcup dimensions to the DT770s please?

I'm not sure abt the other cans but the denon line is really comfortable, both the new and old line.

The Denon D600 should be on the list in my opinion. And their comfort would make you forget your DT770's. I had the Beyers and have both the D600 and the D2000 and though the DT770 was plenty comfy, the Denons are just better in all ways to me.

Hello!
I have an old Creative Zen mp3 player with audio settings EQ Disco + bass boost.
I'm still using the original earphones.

I want to buy headphones with heavy bass, deep, extended, and the treble is not annoying. I would like to spend less than 60 or $ 70.

I tried the AKG K518 LE, I did not like because the sound was a little full-bodied and dynamic, also with the volume at 25 (max) of the mp3 player, it was like 18 with earphones, and I could not appreciate the sound .

I'm curious about the CAL, but I fear we may disappoint.

What headphones do you recommend?

I recommend the CAL, it's got the same driver from the Denon 1001 I think, the MAudio Q40 also get good reviews and they cost around $89 if you can find em at the right time, Also check the orignal bass head list and look in the for sale thread for cans! 

 

Also I've got a pair of Xb700s, that are ALL HEAVY DEEP BASS, on sale on eBay. The Bid has stopped at $51 so far and I've got 4 days left on it so, that's another option for you as well. But check the F/s Thread for some great deals!

Just an FYI, the volume of cans will always be lower than the volume of an IEM at the same volume setting of the source.  Unless you have some super High end IEM that is hard to drive, the IEM will be louder.  I suggest if you (like me) need your music louder than your player is giving out, you should invest in an amp.
