No actually.... more of a plantonic thing going on here. I LOVE her completion, but [like my headphones] I like a LITTLE MORE LOW END muhahaha. IF the sound magic hp 100 where a female, she'd fit the bill [Revision 1 mind u]

ANyways, nice to know we bass heads are a sick bunch 

post #7880 of 11259

I am buying my first headset and I guess I consider myself a bass head because I do listen to metal/trance/techno/hardcore music and generally speaking it has to have a good thump to it.

 

I decided on the following for my first ever headphones, amp and dac.

 

Audeze LCD-2s bamboo (saw that was mentioned on the basshead list), these have also had really really good reviews by almost anyone i talk too or read on the net.

 

Lyr and Bitfrost dac/amp from Shiit Audio. wasn't too sure on the amp+dac but I have heard some very good things about this combo.

 

Would the above be a good combination?

 

Also a few more things, would it be recommended switching the speaker cables straight away or is what I get with the headphones sufficient?, because I saw the Silver Dragon V3 Premium Audeze Headphone Cable, which is crazy expensive!, and was wondering if it was really worth it?

 

Annnd lastly with the Lyr and Bitfrost would there be anything else that is recommended to get in terms of cables?, I would be plugging the DAC into my computer via USB, so do i need a high quality USB or is that not really necessary?

 

Thanks really new to this!

yea the prices there are much higher though... i feel uncomfortable buying from regular users, i do my best to only go for people with a good amount of positive feedback

I would say the classic line: "Hi and welcome to head-fi! Sorry about your wallet". But you seem to already have won the lottery or something? :D No doubt the gear you have mentioned is quite excellent (the LCD2's being on my to-get-when-I-have-the-funds-list), but are you really sure it's wise to start at Summit-fi level (really high end)? Headphones are like wine, it takes experience to really make one appreciate the subtle differences between different price categories! I know I will get myself a pair of LCD's one day, but I'm not ready for them just yet! Anyway, the choice is yours naturally! Let us know how it goes! Sorry that I could not be of any direct help regarding the gear you mentioned.

Thanks!

 

I appreciate the feedback anyway, but I sort of have the outlook of....why buy something of lower quality when you can just get something you really want and not have buyers remorse later haha.

 

I got paid really good commission this pay, so figured I would treat myself! haha, so it's sort of free money.

 

After researching it, I have settled on defintely getting the lyr+bifrost and lcd-2s, I am a bit confused though as to what options i should pick on their website...different tubes and such.

 

I am sort of stuck on....how should I connect these up to my macbook pro 15 retina which i just got...its has digital and analogue through the headphone jack, so i can use the optical....I think i need to buy an adaptor for that though?, also do i need to buy an aftermarket speaker cable and also the connection from the dac to the computer, and the dac to the amp etc?

 

sorry for all the annoying questions guys!

 

Not sure if this is the right thread, but I got the idea of getting these headphones from here if that helps!

I'm no fan of cables. IMO USB and power cables are the quickest way to burn money. Just don't buy junk. A USB cable made to spec does the job perfectly. I'm an EE and IMO silver or gold makes no difference in audio cables. If you need something with better build quality then that might be some value one can appreciate. Me, I'd save my money and if the cable should get damaged, buy another OEM unit. If you or anyone prefers gold or silver, go for it, enjoyment is a big factor in audio. If you want any technical info about this, PM me. I don't want to kick up a storm over this in this thread.

Well, sometimes friends (with benefits) are the best situation you can ever hope to be in...........................

I dont think any open back headphone would be good for basshead as it is more towards warm and natural. I think almost all closed back cans especially the new modern brand sround are really good for Bassheads such as Vmodas and the Beats by dr dre. No offense, just my opinion.
