 1st, Beats Studios have more bass than Beats Pro.

There is no excuse for leaving Studio Beats off this list, thus making the list subjective and not objective. 

 

 And measurements are not the only way of determining whether a headphone qualifies as basshead or not, and I'll prove this before August. 

Argh, I knew leaving the Studios out of the list without any notes will cause confusions.

 

To clarify, the studio was left out not because of its price/performance or what ever. The solos are not in there however, because it was almost universally agreed upon as a terrible choice. It was not included because when listened to in a noisy environment with the ANC on (I think it can't be turned off), the headphones had considerably less bass compared to the Pros. 

 

Did your tests include noisy environments? I do believe the nature of ANC could potentially produce an effect similar to a low frequency filter given the amount of low frequency noises in a typical noisy environment like a shopping mall, or a canteen at an university.

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

One thing all of them have in common is that they have a lot of bass (quantity).

 

If that's the case, a lot of other cans deserve to be in this list as well. For example, the following cans have comparative bass quantity with those  you've picked out -

 

AIAIAI TMA-1

JVC's Xtreme Xplosives line - Huge bass, poor quality. But yeah, they are basshead.

Klipsch Image One

Denon D1100

Reloop RHP series

Skullcandy's Hesh 2 and MMM - They have quite a lot of bass; certainly not as much as the Skullcrusher or the Crusher, but still.

 

If you've heard these cans, you can't deny that they are bassy.

 

Nevertheless, the list is community-sourced. Therefore, many members have contributed to the list of included cans. Hence, if you feel that the Beats Studio should be on it, by all means, nominate it. Moreover, what you define as basshead may not be what another basshead thinks. There are several categories of basshead, and this list tries to cater to all. For some, a basshead can needs to have relatively good quality coupled with a good bass presentation (e.g. PRO700MK2, D2000). It does not need to be a bass monster.

 

Edit: Scratch that; I realized that I've already included the Beats Studio on my own. :D

The UE6000 was added in a later revision of the list. :)

I don't think the UE6000/9000 are basshead cans. I also don't think the M80s are basshead cans.

Don't think M80s are bassy here either. Will see opinions on it here in thread and see what there is to be done about them.

Why the UE6000 and UE9000 not? ...I have saw many treads saying that "'If you like bass, go for it'" confused_face_2.gif

 

Im thinking on buying them..deadhorse.gif

Just check out Innerfidelity's wall of fame.

http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/innerfidelitys-wall-fame-full-size-sealed

 

The UE6000s were replaced by the Senn Momentum on Tyll's wall of fame, and if you read the review they are not considered basshead cans. They even mention how balanced these are...

Their best basshead can is the V-Moda M100, the UE series was never in the running for that category. 

 

Keep in mind that most people on Headfi are not basshead and prefer a balanced sound. To a lot of people here, just a slight bass emphasis can sound overwhelming to them. I think if you are a real basshead, the UE6000 will disappoint although they are awesome headphones in their own right, just not basshead cans.

Compared with other basshead cans on the list, the UE6000/UE9000 are bassier than many and IMO deserve to stay on the list.  Their bass is certainly prominent.

M80 could stay as entry lvl basshead cans, that's pretty much where I'd personally draw the line to what headphones can stay on the list or not, it measures about 5-6dB boost, about same as Audio Technica M50, both those I concider entry-lvl bassheads headphones, not enough bass for my own needs but still has a slight bump in bass though. The human ear will hear 5dB bass bump as pretty much neutral though but I still think that's a good starting point for basshead category.

 

I don't think for example AKG Tiesto K167 DJs have that much though that is on the list: http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/AKGK167Tiesto.pdf (this headphone if any could be removed from the list, big brother K267 is fine in the bassiest setting though)

and between this ones?
 

Logitech UE6000

Logitech UE9000

Parrot Zik
V-Moda Lp2

V-Moda M100 

Soul Sl300
Sony MDR-1R
Beats excecutive? 

 

..HiFiGuy528 replied me:
UE6000, M100 in that order for me.

 

-Im not a really audiophile or something like that, I just go for Sound, Build Quality, Look, Comfort, Bass-, portability 

 

post #6612 of 11259

+5db is pretty much neutral by today's standards :p hehe. I find the M80 and the M50s to be lacking in bass for my taste (My dad loves them though after I gave him my M50s, he is a classical and jazz lover), I listen to mostly EDM so my requirement is diff vs people who listen to a lot more variety. 

 

M100 is def my vote (+8db), clean, fast, smooth, Instant dance club in my head :p Although, if you are into the not so basshead just some bass emphasis type of headphones like the UE6000, the Sennheiser Momentum seems to be better than the UE6000 since it replaced the UE6000 on Innerfidelity's wall of fame. Just food for thought.

Momentums aren't for every1, I know it's not for me at least... UE6000 is probably a better alternative for me, haven't heard UE6000 but I demoed Momentum with horrible experience.

Was it Momentum's highs that bothered you as well or something else?  While they did have present bass, I didn't find it satisfying.  I didn't think it went deep enough and bled into the mids.  I do prefer the overall sound of the UE6000, but the rolled off highs (not quite dark, but muted) make them less than perfect for all genres.

I find it a bit odd that they replaced the $199 UE6000 with the $350 Momentum. I would not consider them to be in the same price range. The Momentums cost a lot more so they'd better sound better lol.
