The Basshead Club - Page 452  

post #6766 of 11259

The beats in hardstyle is usually called kicks, there's maybe 3 different major types of kicks;

Reverse bass: only used in this genre, mostly used in intros and outros

Gated kicks: not so much used anymore, more in early hardstyle

Kicks of FX kicks: Can be pitched or non-pitched (the tone of the kick varies), nowadays it's almost always pitched.

 

Hardstyle has very broad range of sounds, I mean what I linked there is some of the "rawest"/darkest **** you find and I personally don't listen to that style but what I call euphoric hardstyle that is more melodic based, happy or sad/uplifting etc. What hardstyle used to sound like in say 2004 (not to my taste) is very different to what it is today too, well should I say mainstream hardstyle, it doesn't sound so "hard" anymore at all and can be very similar to house music but with distorted bass (kicks).

Here's a Top-20 mix I made of some of my favs from 2007-2013, there's so many others I could also have thought of but yea this shows better the style tracks I like:

For guys who have/had both m100 or q40 which has more bass? And which distorts easier when amped? Also if its not too much to ask what is it about the m100 that makes you guys pick it over the q40

Got 500 and want to buy another pair of cans, and a lot of you guys that liked the q40 recommend the m100 as the upgrade so I was considering those.

I'll go first.  I think I like the Q40 better than the M100.  I have done a cable swap to a V-moda audio only (convenience mod) and put a pair of Alpha pads from Mr Speakers on my Q40.  They are now as comfortable as any phone I have.  I like the sound as well as the M100.

 

Some will say blasphemy (Craigster.............your cue) but really do prefer the Q40 NOW.  Without the mods it would be close.  And price is a fair bit less expensive, even with the mods I'm into the Q40 about $180.

Q40 does have a bit more bass impact and both offer quality bass.  M-100 is easier to drive, bigger soundstage, greater resolution, smoother highs.  Q40 wins on bass.  M-100 wins everywhere else.  I pick up sibilance with Q40 that isn't there with M-100.  Both can be driven quite loud before distorting, but Q40 can be driven a bit louder than M-100.  Both are among the best in their price ranges.  If you go with the Q40, it is almost a necessity to invest $20 or so for M50 pads or something comparable since the stock pads are painfully thin.

This is so true.   The best solution I have, and have now tried 8 different pads on the Q40, is the Mr Speakers Alpha pad.  Worth every penny in my opinion.

I was waiting for the XL pads to pick up the M100 again, but now that I have the Q40 I see no point in spending $300 on the M100.

I'm not saying the Q40 is better but it's good enough that I don't really miss the M100.

I'll wait until it drops below $200 used/new to pick it up again, hopefully by then the XL pads would be available.

Strange I dont mind the stock pads at all, wore them for about 6 hrs w/o taking them off with no pain. Then again I didnt mind the pro700mk2 so maybe I have no nerves in my ears lol. Tried the hifiman pads but didnt like the decrease in bass.

Yea same, I still keep using the stock pads after like maybe 1½ - 2 years now because to me it just sounds best, I'm the guy that keeps noticing every small change something does to the sound though and the stock pads after making them tiny bit deeper (too deep and it changes the sound too much) is about as comfortable as headphones can get for me, I mean I can wear them the whole day if I want without issues. Also tried the Hifiman pads (leather) but nah didn't like the change it brought soundwise and the seal was worse for me (poorer isolation) which I didn't like.

 

The Q40 just keeps me so satisfied yet today (and works so well for my hardstyle mastering due it's bass strength vs quality ratio and otherwise nicely balanced mids vs highs presence) I don't know if I even want to try any new headphones, WS99 has been on my sight now for a while but waiting to see a frequency response of them to get the full scope of lots of user feedback + scientific data before making final decision about it, the bass quantity is a bit too varying from user feedback I feel, hoping that FR would clear it up.

I have both as well, and I think the M100 are much more clear and resolving, but Q40 have slightly more bass.

New headphone coming out soon from Aiaiai. Seems to be an upgrade of the already solid TMA-1 Studio.
