Subbass = Rumbles, soft impact, slow decay, sounds like "wrooooooooooom" in the music
Midbass = Punches/attacking bass, hard impact, fast decay, can sound quite varying in music as it's often used together with midfrequencies so can sound like, "thump", "blop", "tok", "dong".

Of course in most electronic music for example a bass beat uses both midbass and fills it up with subbass so it sounds fullier. So you can't 100% say this beat is midbass and this is subbass but to give you an idea:

^ this intro has a very typical "midbass" sound to it, why I usually link to exactly this trance/hardtrance song as reference.

While for example rap uses a lot of subbass, like this very known classic which is a good reference in this case:


Do note only the constant low humming from 31 sec forward is subbass while it also has the bumping midbass thrown in there to give it some rythm too

 

Hardstyle for example uses a lot of both and there the "punch" is referred as midbass and "kick" as subbass (makes sense with kick and punch action). The beats there always has both a punch and kick to maximize bass impact, here's a good example of a mix which isn't the style of hardstyle I listen to but a good reference in this case:

Hey,

   I'd like to apply for the Basshead Club with me Beats Pros. darthsmile.gif

Meh, i'll probably get flamed for joining with my Beats, but hey, these are basshead cans, after all. I did a 'tissue mod' on it to get rid of the annoying "pleather furnace." I'll probably make a thread on it, lol.

 

^Wat.

   Well, lol, Tron: Legacy had an LE pair, too, and it's sponsored by Daft Punk...now disconned tho. tongue.gif Tron and Daft punk did it, why won't After Earth make one too?

generates hard-hitting sub-bass.

 

^ lol, if you read my earlier post this is quite contradicting. :P I mean sure you can boost the subbass 20dB and it will definitely be loud but to me it still is soft in the impact though. XB700 comes to my mind, aprox 15dB subbass boost, however listening with XB700 to hardstyle wasn't very pleasing because the bass output was way too soft hitting for my liking due to missing midbass.

Actually, sub bass CAN be very hard hitting. It depends. On some songs with good beats, EQing up everything below 80 Hz can really feel like a sledgehammer to the head. But on other songs with prominent bass lines, sub bass can sound like low humming... or even farting biggrin.gif

It seems as if the Munitio PRO40 will be limited to 125 units. That's gonna be one hard to find headphone. Also, After Earth was a really REALLY bad movie triportsad.gif.

Well, welcome in. The Beats Pro is actually a pretty good basshead can, and it's one of the 2 Beats cans that I am actually very interested in getting (Beats Mixr is the other).

Yep. I wouldn't actually describe heavily boosted sub-bass as "hard hitting". The impact is more akin to soft, but the experience is intense. XB700 and XB1000 are the kings of the sub-bass for me.

The opening track sounds a bit similar to gabber. Try this mix and see if you like anything this guy is playing.

Hi all;

 

New to the club;

 

Now I am using

 

Player :  Clip+ and Sony A828

IEM : CKM500 and Klipsch S4

Headphone : AKG 518, Denon D1100 & HA-S500.

File : MP3 320 file

Music : pop, pop rock, acoustic, post rock, etc.,

like good bass, and I think about time to seek for something good in mid and high as well;

I have a friend going to Japan and I will ask for a favor; some Japanese brand is cheap there;

 

Target : JVC FXT90 (USD55);

Q1 : will FXT90 be an upgrade of CKM500 & S4?

 

Q2 : upgrade of headphone, outdoor use, I want something can completely cover my ears and hit hard bass; (D1100 bass I think is quite soft to me, 518 clamp too hard, ha-s500 cannot cover whole ear but sound quite right to me)

 

My list :

Creative Aurvana Live! (USDD70)

ATH M50 (USD120)

ATH WS99(USD145)

ATH ES700(USD110)

ATH Pro700MK2 (USD120)

SENNHEISER PX360 (USD120)

Crossfade LP (USD120)

 

 

Any advice?

Thanks

Actually I was referring to the soft but epic piano part. But that's some amazing party music! L3000.gif

saw a quick sale on Amazon for the LP today for $74.99, but have not heard, so I don't know if they have the sound you are looking for, but some you selected are darker headphones.  I don't know that any of these will make the most of your 320K files.  You may want to consider stepping up to the V-Moda M-100, especially for acoustic.

Thanks Craigster;

 

actually, up till now I still what "darker" sound mean;

 

Together with delivery, LP is the only model of crossfade which fit my budget,

You can see my ceiling is around 140USD

as for sub bass having a "soft" impact, its really to do with volume imo. im somewhat of a sub bass enthusiast, and i eq it up by quite a bit, and let me tell you - it can hit you like a tone of bricks!

 

and sorry to go slightly off topic here, but i remembered sometime in the past you were having a different discussion with a different person about hardstyle, and the term "reverse/inverse bass", or something like that, was thrown in? i may very well be getting the terminology wrong... is there some special or untraditional "kind" of bass typically used in hardstyle tracks? or am i making this up in my mind?

I'm interested and hearing about this too, even though I don't like hard style. I'm pretty sure it is called a hard kick or something like that.
