The Basshead Club - Page 486

post #7276 of 11204

 Why am I inexplicably gravitating towards the JVC SZ-2000? I'm looking for headphones for work so they have to be closed and they have to be very comfortable. Should I be looking at something else that's cheaper? This is a basshead thread so you know what I'm looking for sound signature-wise...

1 more recommendation (I can't believe I forgot about these, seeing as I'm going to revisit them since I have new gear) the Pro700mk2 has been highly touted by bassheads here. They are stylish (pretty much everyone likes them over the q40's in the looks department, bht I strangely fing the q40's nice).

I did look at ath and m audio and many others but right now looks like my cousin will be getting the ue 6000 from logitech. Looks good and should be a substantial upgrade over his beats. He enjoys the ergonomics and design mostly because it is similar to the beats. But sound should be much better. I can get it for 140 with shipping.

Finally someone else who agrees that the beats dont have bass O.O

But then again... The only time ive ever felt bass from headphones was when i got my hfi 580's, and thats from someone who upgraded from an xb500 lol.

Guess my brain just decides to ignore crappy bass xD

Hello, what is better JVC HA-FXT90 (80$) or Vsonic gr07be( 133$)? I like electronic bass music, little indie rock, thanks guys.

post #7281 of 11204

JVC HA FXT90 - Hotter highs and mids, more impactful bass. and gr07 be is most likely a more balanced signature and better quality bass, less quantity.

Any suggestions other than the ue6000? I think they look amazing and the value is there along with great sq and bass. Just wondering if there are any "nice-looking" headphones out there for about the same amount of money.

why no beats? is it really that bad? im planning to get one tho... beats pro

As many others stated...beats lineup do not sound near what you are paying for. It usually sounds like half of what you pay for. For the money, they just do not make any sense. I listened to the studios my cousin has and was not impressed. Then i showed him my xb90ex, which is FAR better in all areas, and then now he wants new headphones xD

I just started using cans this year, because no cans ever had enough bass for me since I was coming from IEM's. When I started amping however cans were able to contend with the bass iems give. without an amp, even the most insanely rated basshead cans did less than nothing for me.

Thats right no amps. I believe the ue6000 has an amp built in. Personally i have never used an amp so i dunno. My headphone provides sufficent volume/bass already with software audio tweaks on my android with viper4android and poweramp.

Technically, a on ear/over ear headphone would provide more sub bass than an iem or how does it work? Iem has got more mid bass kick? I know that amount of air in between the driver and ear canal has a lot to do with the level of percieved sub bass. But what about mid bass? Im confused...which is bassier overall? Bass iem or bass headphone/can?
post #7288 of 11204

Over ear especially grants the ability to actually provide you ear/skin-tickling sensation which IEMs won't. This for me is a huuuuuuuuuge deal, the ability to not only hear but also feel the bass grants my hardstyle listening needs to a whole different level of satisfaction. :p

I also use that feature to my advantage when I'm mastering newcomer's tracks, I know basslevels are on an appropriate level when I start to feel the kicks. (no I don't listen overly loud, the mids and highs are pretty average but the bass is much louder in comparison due to ZO2 + Q40 combo). If I wasn't using ZO2 though I would have to boost the volume to the point mids and highs would get annoyingly loud to achieve the same experience.

I think the UE6000 is a good choice.  While the highs are a bit soft, they sound great, have prominent bass and are comfortable.  Also, they are one of the few amped headphones that sound great without the amp.

I could recommend the Ultrasone PRO 550. It is a very comfortable can that has all you need. Deep bass from 50 mm drivers good mids and good treble, that do not tend to any kind of hiss. They are build like a tank, have detachable cable, switchable earpads and a very sturdy transport box.
