except for when i should be studying and im not, i dont think i ever feel guilty. most especially when it comes to audio and audio gear. why should i feel bad about spending money on something that i love? i pay rent, food, bills, etc. in order to keep on living my life normally. buying audio gear/ music is every bit as part of my life as food, i need both in order to continue my preferred life style. i think that after you make a purchase, you shouldnt feel guilty, you should feel proud. reward yourself for investing in your interests - thats one of the things that make you happy!

Does anyone know what level the e07k reaches with bass boost? I read somewhere that the Digizoid Z02 gets almost 13+ db

From the FiiO website:

 

Bass Boost Range

-10 dB~+10 dB

^^ thanks, never thought of looking on there website...

Ok so after some more research I'm starting to wonder if the Fiio E07K is a better option than the E11+ZO2. There is a slightly less bass boost (by ~3) but with the E07K I can control the treble as well. The only tousled thing is I wouldn't be using it on my computer at all, just portable. Any other suggestions?

i did a quick search and couldnt find the specifics, but im pretty sure the ZO can produce alot more than just +10 dB. i think its 18, or maybe even more. heck, its got 32 different bass stages, maybe it even goes up to 32 dB! im sure someone will chime in soon with the exact amount, but im pretty sure its more than 10 dB...

Aprox 15dB which is higher measured than any other bass boosting amps, I believe CmoyBB comes 2nd with 13dB boost which is a one-setting only so not very useful.

So the Digizoid Z02 takes away from the mids/highs slightly?

You don't read a graph like that, the zero level really means pretty much zero in a frequency response graph, it's about frequency response balance. With a boost in bass you can also read it like you get less of everything else. Then you can of course also say the opposite, reduce mids and highs and you will also get more bass, it's pretty much the same really. It's like having starving people fight for a food supply, there is only so much food available and if some people get less food, it means someone else gets more of it.

 

The only practical difference or reason for what reducing the volume of the mids and highs result in, in this case is that it prevents distortion (clipping) when the source volume + combined boost in bass frequencies might get too much. Bass is what will surely be the first range to distort since it's boosted higher, reducing mids and highs gives it additional headroom before the bass starts distorting. You get percieved more bass due to reduction in mids and highs but in theory you'd hear the same by simply boosting bass further but at the same volume setting on the source, it means the bass is further away from clipping/distortion than what it would be if only the bass were boosted further. This is the same reason a lot of people recommend to simply cut mids and highs instead of boosting the bass frequencies on an equalizer.

 

BTW, other bass boost amps also does this.

Thanks for clearing that up wizard, I'm sure as you can tell I'm anything but an expert. Also loved the quote:

"It's like having starving people fight for a food supply, there is only so much food available and if some people get less food, it means someone else gets more of it."

Really helped me understand what amps do.
post #6567 of 11259

Are there any good basshead cans for around €150,- with really good mids and highs aswell?

Not really what amps do, just what bass boost (or equalization in general) does.

I only know of M-Audio Q40 and Nuforce HP-800, both are probably your best bet. 

post #6570 of 11259

Anyone tried the jds labs C5 with bass boost? if so, would you consider it satisfying?

 

I'm just researching DACs and amps and this one is on my radar.

Also, if anyone has used the Audioquest Dragonfly or Meridian DACs, please share your basshead thoughts popcorn.gif
