Sennheiser - Bass? Lol, forget it. Those 2 names are not associated

Forgot the IE8's, those are bass monsters, anyways I was talking about headphones.
I have auditioned the HD25 and did not think its a basshead can at all.
I would rather get the XB500 over the XB700. I've had both. Know nothing about the XB1000s though.
The 500 is too muddy, the 700 has a simple mod to it that opens it up and brings it some nice clarity and keeps all that SUB BASS, the XB1000 is the PUNCH of the 500 and the Clarity and Slam of the 700, it combines both, but does neither Sub Bass or Mid Bass as well as either [which honeslty is fine because it's the END ALL sony bass can] In addition the 500 has like +2db of mid over the 1000. and the 700 has like 3db of Sub over the 1000. so they are all like +15dbs of bass
Again get the 1000 and enjoy
Last... THE HD25 is most DEFINATLY a bass head can... that bass is WAY to big an powerful to not be also welcome :D
They sound pretty much the same to me. I think the XB910 is just a nicer looking XB800 with a detachable cable. Most of the specs are the same. In fact, I was about to get the XB910 myself, but since I couldn't really tell it apart from the XB800, I decided to give it a miss.
I've had a change of heart of late. I actually think the HD 25-1 II is a really good basshead can after all. It's not very heavy in the low end, but it has enough presence and relative detail to make most of my EDM tracks shine.
Agree'd the HD25 is a nice sounding can, but it was too small for me [and I mean teh sound stage was too small]
Absolutely. The Beyerdynamic DT250 pads (may have that model wrong) definitely help them a lot. Let me know if you're interested and I'll look up the number. It's a velour model that is very firm. Have them on mine.
those are as much as the headphones! haha what about the shure 840 pads?
The design reminds me of the Momentum... except less classy
The HD25ii has heaps of midbass - that's where DJ's need them, to be able to beatmatch properly. They also isolate really well. Not so great for sub-bass, however.
Aside from those and the IE8's (and probably a few others I'm missing out on), I'd generally not consider Sennheiser as a competitor in the Basshead club.
