Anyway, I was also thinking about the headphones vs IEM issue. Aside from comfort (and fittings), how do they compare in bass performance? I mean, for me IEM has excellent noise cancellation because of total blockage in the ear. I haven't used a headphone before but I am thinking of buying one. For more or less $100, what good headphones has excellent bass performance and clarity?


Logitech UE 4000- Isolation isn't perfect since they are on-ear, but they have solid bass performance and clarity.  This is the best price I have seen on them, don't know the retailer though.

Hmm. Over ear headphones really doesn't have "perfect" noise cancellation compared with IEMs. I guess I'll stick with IEM.

I like the NAD HP 50, but it is just a hair under basshead levels.  New release reviews have been disappointing for the most part.  B&W P7 may qualify, but I haven't heard them yet.  I'm still waiting for a better sounding mid-price portable that trumps the V-Moda M-100.

Nah it's okay. Thanks anyway. 

 

CKS series also has good reviews on amazon. I wonder how these perform.

Meritline does deliver, but it's a company based in China that I doubt it an Authorized retailer.
I usually buy cheap dollar items off of them.

IEMs need to get you a perfect seal to give you proper sound and noise cancellation. If this works for me with a certain IEM, there is no guaranty that it will work for you too. So you basically need to try and buy yourself through some models and then you can start searching for the best tips to get what you want. So recommendation is not easy.

 

I shot myself a Sony EX-1000 IEM in mint condition and for me it worked out just fine. No basshead quality, but the finest and deepest bass I came across up to now. And the imaging is on par with a lot of the closed over ears that I own, or did own. But this Sony is a high end IEM with some very interesting construction details, like a 16mm Liquid Crystal diaphragm ,a magnesium alloy housing and very special treated high energy neodym magnets. So nothing you get for 100 USD even used.

I've had the vPulse. The bass was amazing, and the mids were good too. On the warm side but very smooth. Treble sounded a bit odd though, as if it was disembodied from the rest of the frequency spectrum. Overall I found the sound pretty good but I hated the fit. There are little vents in the housing that increase bass but also relieve pressure from building up in your ear canals, and lack of pressure is the worst thing possible when it comes to universal IEMs. They just would not stay in my ears when I moved around. The housings are also VERY lightweight, so light that the cable is heavy in comparison and seems to be dragging them down.

You guys ever heard the HiSoundAudio WooDuo2? I love the bass on those. It's my current "Go-to" for IEM bass.

Regarding the bass boost of jds labs c5, does it guarantee that the bass will improve whatever IEM you plug in it? 

post #7841 of 11259
Depends on if you mean improve, or increase.

improve: louder, deeper, stronger punch/thump.

Every amp's bass boost will do that with varying degree.

YES

 

I had the C5 and the bass boost was TOO much for me, also John has confirmed this as well, but the boost is different on High and Low Gain
