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.

sorry for the late post just been busy I brought these from richersounds store they were slight seconds and I offered them 20 and they took it, however the are brand new and I can comfortably say these need to be on the list I also brought these.

and the hype on these is rediculous there not that great of a basshead headphone in fact all the headphones I own destroy these, my weakest basshead headphone is the denon 1100 and they blow these out of the water. I dont know what people listen for in terms of bass but myself I look for that subwoofer sounds that shakes your head these dont deliver that they deliver the same sound of the pro900's, they dont go very loud, they dont eq that well the bass is there and is soft bass, does not rattle your skull like a basshead can should, however these are not better than pro900's on what both do atleast the pro900's once you turn them up at 80 percent volume they do a decent job of tickling your ears but no where near the pro700mk2, vibe blackdeath, xb1000 and LP2 standards.

If you're looking for boomy, muddy, overwhelming midbass and no subbass, you're not going to like the Q40s. To me they have the perfect bass as I like subbass without too much midbass. The bass does increase with burn in, so give it a few weeks. Or maybe you just have a defective pair?

muddy bass the xb1000 does not have muddy bass the lp2 does not have muddy bass, the q40's are lazily built drivers, they distort at higher volumes and I dont think mine are defective at all, should have known better but atleast I have tried and crossed them off my list, q40's are disappointing and I thought this thread is the BASSHEAD club meaning headphones that should rock your socks off in bass so why is the q40 in here it is a good bass headphone it fails as a basshead headphone to me. 

post #6740 of 11259
Hmm. My Q40s have plenty of impact and don't distort even at deafening volumes. If yours aren't defective, maybe they started making fakes after we hyped them :D
post #6741 of 11259

I brought mine from an authorised seller so dont think they are fake and dont think any fakes have been made, man the headphones I own at the moment absolutely destroy the q40's and thats not a joke the q40's lack a lot of impact compared to the ones I have they are good headphones but not at the bass level of the ones I have. I think people are getting confused when I say bass for me it represents punchy boomy sound these dont have that at all. maybe a good headphones to listen to music but not great for shaking your head off. 

post #6742 of 11259

if you like the type of bass the q40's have then your not going to beat the denon ahd400 or the akg k167 for the subbass you guys are talking about the bass in the two are much better especially the denon's. the quality and quantity trumps the q40's. I would have kept my denons but the hassle of recharging the amp was too much for me. 

post #6743 of 11259

I feel the Q40s are sort of mediocore unamped, but I have no distortion at extremely high volume levels, and they have enough bass to shake my eyeballs. I honestly think your pair might be defective.

post #6744 of 11259

perhaps they are defective I have no way of telling but mine I have amped to a dual set up using a c&c X02 with bass boost and gain on high this amp has an output off 1000 mw and this hooked up to a fiio e12 with gain switch to 16db and bass boost on both amps have the volume halfway anymore and this thing starts to give out the drivers start to rattle and the bass distorts.

I've had LP2 and Denon D1100 for a little while and the Q40's bass isn't THAT far away. The LP2s had much less bass quality and to me sounded a bit muddy with some bass bleeding into midrange but they had gobs of midbass too. D1100 is all midbass unless it gets amped then subbass comes alive but still the Q40 deliver more subbass to my ears. Maybe you're into midbass? I still think Q40 has decent amount both midbass and subbass too but LP2 has quite a bit more midbass which provide the "thumping"-impact. Together with ZO2.1 amp the Q40 provide really big impact and that's some1 coming from XB500 and LP2 and in the past heavily abused EQing to get to extreme bass levels. The difference while using ZO2.1 amp with it though is while I can with this amp get to those LP2 levels of bass easily, it also outputs it with much more quality, the bass stays very textured despite the power it's output with and this is extremely important for the genre hardstyle I listen to the most. I both get to feel the bass "tickling my ears" while it's output with very high quality at the same time. I'm still looking for upgrades but not sure if there exists other good alternatives which both deliver the quantity/impact and quality I look for. :)

Yeah, I mean, something must be off, my Q40s wanted to rip my head off with some bass tracks I had (and this was even when using them with Beyerdynamic velour pads!).

you got it then mid bass impact is what I am into the thumping of the bass on headphones the q40's dont deliver that at the standard I need I guess everyone has different definition or bass preferences but for me and a lot of other people its the midbass the impact that makes a headohone basshead worthy.yes the lp2's bleed into other frequencies and so do the xb500's but there mid bass as you would say is godly, the only headphones I have heard that bring the bass impact without sacrificing other frequencies are the ws99's however as a basshead I sold them on as they werent as powerful as some of the others cans I have and instead brought the pro700mk2's which literally kill your face with the amount of bass they output these and the xb1000's are the only headphones I have heard where the bass becomes so impactful that I have to take breaks listen to them.

Sounds like WS99 is still the only interesting option I will have to check out, seems like they are maybe more midbass oriented then. Meaning they have the more faster and solid hard hitting bass ("thump-thump" bass) but not the sea of ocean deep subbass (WROooOM-WROooOM) bass to illustrate it. How do subbass on WS99 vs Q40 compare, this may be the only lacklustre thing with WS99 I'm thinking. I sold for example Denon HP700 due to lacking subbass that had pretty solid midbass though.

yes the ws99 has fast bass and it thumps once amplifies its an amazing headphone I might buy it again if I can pick it up quite cheap but for some people taste it is fantastic for mine however I dont really care for any other frequencies except for the lows and how much impact they deliver. when you say subbass what does this mean if midbass is the impact of the bass the thumpy-ness what is subbass is it the rumble of the headphones, are subbass headphones have what I call soft rumbly bass. can you define what you mean by sub bass.

post #6750 of 11259

Has anyone heard about this one?  Looks interesting for bassheads.
