HOLY- 

The JH16s are BASSY?! eek.gif

They're like, renowned for being the CIEM with the most drivers per earpiece! They're actually bassy?

Wow...this could be the be-all-end-all of all bassy CIEMs in the universe!

 

Just...WOW.

 

...Too bad it's way out of my reach...

They're only bassy compared to other high-end custom IEMs... coming from Beats they would probably sound pretty neutral in comparison :P

   Of course. I know what flat sound is supposed to sound like, thanks to an audition of the HD 205. I would've bought that pair...

but since next month im going to get a BASSY CIEM, im still undecided since im choosing into 3 CIEM at the moment, 1964ears-Q , Alclair Crankmaster , Wan Xuan i9pro(Beat audio by unique melody) smily_headphones1.gif

If you aren't buying before the end of Summer you could get the DD1 from Cosmic Ears. Its the cheapest dynamic driver custom IEM. It is said to be just under basshead levels, but a bass boosting amp or EQ could bring it there.

HMMM.... bass is not the only factor why im buying those... i need vocals as well since i'm an all rounder person, but since we are living in an era that has a modern type of music that has bass... i need to have a CIEM that has above average bass since i also love techno music emphasized in sub-bass not mid bass, and also those ciem's that i mentioned has sweet vocals :)

It's basically when you reverse the peaks and dips in the frequency range to make it more neutral. 

 

7kHz would be brought up a dB, 1.5kHz would be brought up around 3.5dB, 2.2kHz would be brought up around 2dB, 3.8kHz would be brought up around 8dB, 5kHz about 4dB, 7kHz down 4dB, 9kHz down 5dB, and 16kHz up 6dB.  I've done a similar thing to my headphones, and I couldn't be any less satisfied. I wouldn't be surprised that if someone were to do the same thing to something like the xb500, you may get a less vieled sounding headphone. 


thanks for the tips trae, but im afraid eqing according to a graph just doesnt work for me.

1 - the graph you see is compensated from several measurements. the actual response varies quite a bit everytime you take the cans on and off, ie, positioning on the head.

2 - i find that my actual, perceived response is way more subtle than that of the graph, as explained in the next paragraph

3 - my view of frequency response graphs was changed when i downloaded a sine wave generator. once i preformed a sine sweep i suddenly realized how little the frequency response graphs actually tell you about sound. which is why i eq by ear. i preform a sine sweep, and listen for any volume peaks in the treble (you can do this with the entire frequency range ofcourse, i just chose to focus on the treble, as thats the part that fatigues my ears). once i find the peaks, its a matter of homing in on the exact "tip" of the peak and finding the correct Q (bandwidth).

with the m-100, a very crude and inaccurate eq setting seemed to fix all my issues. but with the dt-770, after several tries, several different settings, and many many sessions with the sinewave generator i just couldnt seem to get it right. it was better than before, but i would still get fatigued after about 30-40 min...

 

oh and i eq down, not up, as you may remember from our former eq conversations.

Yea, you should never EQ as much looking at a graph as the graph would tell you to to get it "flat", then you would be overEQ'ing it, a more accurate result you may get like from max half of what the graph tells but I prefer using my own ears to evaluate, it's not really that hard, just listen while adjusting to the point you hear the frequencies starting to stick out and then back off until "it disappears with the rest". It's really that simple.

Cosmic Ears also makes a three-driver hybrid CIEM called the HY3 that comes in standard and extra-bass versions. The standard version has similar bass quantity to the GR07, and the extra bass version has huge sub bass.

So has anyone else listened to the Perfect Sound Dido D901 headphones?

My sinus cleared up finally and I'm enjoying these a whole lot...

Frankly, not sure if I can say it's truly a "basshead"-type headphone, but Bass is slamming and hitting pretty hard right now!

Will try and listen alongside the Signature DJs to compare but man, I'm enjoying the bass and fast attack on these... although, low-end has kind of a mild "reverb" quality to it... Anyway, we might have a contender to the Sig DJs...

LOL!

No, it's not that I want more bass, I just haven't heard the Sig DJs in like a month probably, so I cannot say if these have more or less. The punch and slam is 'there' though.

 

Also, Frank, so you can keep eating popcorn like crazy, I read a rumor somewhere that these guys are using Fostex bio-cellulose drivers/technology?!? (i.e. same as TH-900/600) but I don't know if there's a shred of truth to this or not!

Fair enough. I thought that if your a basshead and don't find the bass of the DJ satisfying enough, then really you shouldn't be on headfi!!

Literally find a way to suspend two subwoofers from a headphone headband and then your done. The bass in mental on this ultrasone, and really really enjoyable I must admit.
