The Basshead Club - Page 493

Don't say these things...I heard them, they still sound bad; better, sure, but still worse than plenty of $100-$150 cans, and the FR is peaky enough to prove it.

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. 

 

 

Actually just got myself an Amperior today. Good stuff.

Don't get me wrong - I have two pairs of HD25ii's myself. I love the isolation.

I hear ya, loving the isolation here too. 

 

Sennheisers in general are really in the "warm" territory, and doesn't really fit into the basshead definition. Although some of the headphones on the list has only relatively more bass compared to the headphones in its range, as many headphones in the $1000 for example, tend to be dead neutral.

I haven't read through the rest of this tread - it's huge!

From my personal collection, my basshead choices are:

The Beyer DT770, 

 

The Denon D5000

 

And in the IEM range, the Westone 3, and the WooDuo 2. 

 

Are these choices pretty popular around here?

The DT770 isn't popular in this thread, but in some areas it's pretty wide spread.

Really? I'm surprised. I love the bass out of the DT770. I feel like it delivers sub-bass properly, where many dynamic drivers fail to do so! 

Maybe I need to look elsewhere - what do people recommend over the DT770?

I agree with you in the love of the DT770 bass.  Had the 32 ohm LE version and now have a Darth Beyer, which is based off of the DT770 80 ohm and they both thumped pretty good.

 

From my experience, the Q40, Pro900, D2000 all had better bass to me than the DT770 (before I got the Darth Beyer that is..............).

I'm really after either either of the two:

 

1. Bassy wood full sized cans

2. Plananr magnetic that have decent quantities of bass.

 

What do you guys think? 

post #7390 of 11259

1. Darth Beyers? LA2000/5000/7000?

 

2. HE-400/500?

I love my DT770s, they really need a good amp and source to shine, though; even my 32 ohm LEs don't sound what I consider "good" with my E11. Schiit Asgard does the trick though, and I imagine a Magni or O2 would probably do them justice. They also sound good out of my HRT microStreamer, although it's a bit sharp in the 10k area.

Sometimes, when I'm bored, I come to this thread and watch this gif like 8 times in a row. It's awesome for some reason. I love how the guy in back stands up right as he does.

 

 

Still trying to figure out what cans those are...maybe a commercial edition of the DT150s or something?

In this price range, you wouldn't consider the Ultrasone Signature DJ or the Fostex TH600/900?

Denon D7000 or D5000 fits that bill...............

 

As Craigster said, TH600, even tho not wood, sounds wonderful.  Auditioned them for over a week and side by side with my D7000 it was like two clones.

So the htf's came in.... Really impressive for 30 dollar headphones. I think they sound better than the xb500's but the bass quantity is lower. Haven't listened to enough songs to tell bass quality yet but I like them so far.. 2 things..

Burn in... How should I do it and how much will it change the sound?

The long cord... Any tips on how to effectively shorten it? Braid it somehow?
