For me Q40 is a lot better than LP2, I stopped using my LP2 after about 1 week. Too veiled highs and the bass bleeds a bit too much into the mids, probably the bass quantity is a bit too excessive.That having said the midbass especially in them thumped like crazy, drums for example had a very high impact. TBH though, LP2 is overpriced SQ wise, a more fair price would be 100~$125, SQ-wise alone I think it's worth ~$75 (A slightly improved XB500, same signature) but the nice build obviously raises the value. Q40 on the other hand I'd rate more like $150-200 SQ-wise subjectively.

So from what it sounds like, I may be better off keeping tbe ipod/e11/z02 setup and just get some
Q40s...

I guess I will keep the LP2s as my dedicated DJ headpbones, keep the JVCs IEMs for portability and just thow the TMA1s up for sale then cop a pair of the Q40s.

Thanks for all the advice guys. Ill be back with my opinion on the Q40s when I get them.

My go to rig for quite some time was iDevice/E-11/ZO/Q40's.........love that combo and still do a variation of it with the C&C BK instead. Great portable basshead combo that flat thumps.

Check out the Q40 thread for tips on cable and ear pad upgrades.

I've got myself an XB1000 lately for shiggles. These things have alright bass, but I need more. Any recommendations?

Haven't heard the XB1000 but own the 700 and 500. It's rumored the 500 has the most bass but I think the 700 sounds best and has both sub and mid bass. Other than the Sony offerings, there's plenty of M-Audio Q-40 fans, myself included, as one of the premiere basshead cans. Then there's the Ultrasone Pro900, which thumps with any of the others, as do both my Denon cans (D2000 and D600).

Amping is also a key factor. What are you driving it with? Any amp currently?

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. frown.gif

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. biggrin.gif

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?

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.[/quopic look at my pics/posts I have a solution for your comfort issues with the vmodas... It might change your mind

Have heard or owned all those you mentioned at least once (except the D600). I won't be running any amplification for these just powered through my laptop when I'm on the go. So far the XB1000 has more bass than both the 500 and 700 from memory with a bit more detail clarity. I want a lot of mid-bass without sacrificing my sub-bass. So I want the bassiest headphone by stock with no amp required. So far my modded HD438 has the most mid-bass in a headphone I have ever heard, but it doesn't have much sub-bass rumble (at least until high driver distortion levels and rattling kicks in).

Hello,

I'm looking for IEM basshead if it can also give a good SQ. What best IEM will I get these days with <$100?

Ohh, also I have E11 and E12 for the amps, will be paired with those amps.

Thanks

Hey guys, I think we should ACTUALLY REFER TO THE LIST that our fellow basshead club members take time to draw up and not keep spamming questions. Some of the Qns can be answered by the list itself.
post #6356 of 11259
Sorry, but some IEM basshead on the list look like discontinued, and I'm new to this audiophile. Didn't know yet what these days IEM that is still produce and have the replacement parts.

Not to sound like an ass, but it's kinda impossible to get MOREBASS without an amp.  The XB1000 are basshead cans, good bass w/o being really muddy (like the xb500) however they are mostly sub bass. 

Iems will likely have the bass you want because they don't NEED an amp, and I honestly haven't heard a pair of cans I can listen to w/o one.

Someone asked about the Denon D400 Urban Raver.  I owned these briefly and couldn't have been more disappointed in their sound.  While I suppose they qualify as basshead cans, they are literally one of the worst sounding headphones I have heard at any price- muddy, veiled highs.  I have expressed this opinion in the past regarding these and have yet to have anyone come to their defense, so I'm assuming there is some consensus with these.  Of course, now that I mention this, 20 people will come forward to say how great they are biggrin.gif

 

To add insult to injury, they are ridiculously overpriced.
