Hmm, yup, they look awfully the same. Probably from the same OEM? Some headphone companies do that - license an existing design, then rebrand as their own.

A lot of smaller headphone companies share moulds to make the headphone shells as they're very expensive to make. Doesn't mean they have the same drivers inside though.

Guys,

 

I don't know if the main page (1st page) is still being updated but I've been using these 2 guys lately and they definitely need to be on the list:

 

JVC HA-SZ2000

Monster NCredible N-Pulse

 

Both of these were released just a few months ago. A few notes:

At the price I bought the JVCs imported, I wouldn't recommend them... too expensive. Wait until they are available locally at a much more decent price...

 

At the price I bought the Monsters, I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THEM! They are being sold by a few vendors on eBay for less than $120 instead of the retail $200.

 

Bye.

 

 

Oh, I forgot... IEM --> Denon C300s try to actually blow your head off with their bass!!! You can get them cheap ($120 or so) from international sellers (in the UK mostly). Why? Well, I BELIEVE it is because they have a new-ish version, C301, so they are probably trying to get rid of their "old" stock.

I hear ya, but check out how truly portable even a double amp setup can be.  That's a BK and ZO combo fed via LOD from a Nano.

WOW!

LOL!

You use that were I'm from, people will either think it's a monitoring device for something OR, someone will probably tear your arm out trying to steal the setup from you... :-p

I bet some people's first reaction from a distance (older women/men) that it could look like a small bomb planted on your arm (in the terrorized world we live in today and Boston bombings it's not such a suprise). For that reason alone I'd feel a bit iffy walking around with it. :D

That's what I'm worried about! I'm chasing after a sound that I have in my car setup, I "plug" my iPod into my subs amp and use a FM transmitter and tune in. So I control the music with my default stereo and control the subs with my iPod. So I have the best of both worlds in a sense. Now I'm trying to find it in "portable" form.

Originally when I ventured into Head-Fi I was looking for the same thing, Headphones that sounded like my car stereo system. After getting the XB-500 and the E11 I quickly decided that I wanted higher levels of clarity with more bass extension. That is what lead me to the M-100. Also you use an FM transmitter?

Hey fellow bassheads

 

I'm pretty new to this scene and I was hoping to get some advice. I bought a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770. I feel like there isn't enough bass even though I maxed out the bass on my amp. I'm now looking at a pair of V-Moda m100. I was really looking for a pair of cans that will give me the bass as if I had a pair of subs on my ears. I really love the pounding you get from headphones, can someone give me some advice on what to check out please?

 

My limit is ~$300. Thanks in advance guys!

I don't think any headphone can reproduce that ear tickling feeling without amping/eqing. You could try getting an amp for your 770s or eqing for more bass.

when i first got the dt 770s i was quite underwhelmed by their bass myself. when i got the m-100, i didnt feel much of an increase in bass quantity - only in quality. there are plenty of cans with louder bass than these two, but i havent heard any of them, so ill let others take care of recommendations, while ill recommend what i usually do, what i know well - equalization =]

 

turn the "pre-amp" down and the bass up, or, turn everything else (not bass) down. either way - the effect is lots of bass. both cans are very eq friendly, and both can deliver a massive punch when prompted. 

post #6732 of 11218

Maybe the Denon D600 or ultrasone pro 900 or ultrasone 580 and maybe the sony xb700( the bass i hardhitting but mids and highs are mediocre)

post #6733 of 11218

hey there, I used my Marantz home stereo amp/receiver to power the DT 770's. Still lacking the extra oomf I want.

i dont know anything about your amplifier, maybe its enough, maybe it isnt. even if it is, theres only so much an amp can do. an amp is meant (imo atleast) to bring your headphones to their fullest potential. when they get there, theres really not much else you can do. equalizing on the other hand, will allow you to pump bass at such a level that your eardrums blow in.
