Of course they all some differences though.

No but we are talking about full sized, over the ear headphones here :cool:

S.A.:  UNCANNY. I may not always listen to bassy cans, but when I do, I prefer Final Audio Pandora VI.

 

I think there aren't too many 2- or 3-way headphones in the headphone market, I know only some cheap ones, and the AKG K270 series, which I think never was intended for audiophile use though.

First time I've seen BAs in a headphone before. I wonder how they look taken apart.

So sexy looking!

Hopefully they are better built than the Dido D901s... that's one of my main cons for those cans, well, and their kind of metallic sound and too-wide-kind-of-unnatural sound stage...

Those look sweet. Cant wait to hear some more comparisons and reviews...

So are they available already? 

 

Also - isn't the JVC that gelocks has a dual driver model?

Yep.

I think it has a 55mm and a 30mm driver or so...

The sound is not clean enough for me though, so hopefully Final Audio knows how to properly deal with multiple drivers on their offerings.

Oops haha I obviously didn't think after I read it has a BA. My bad! They look pretty nice!

I wish multiple driver full-size headphones were still around.

Monoprice 10243. 55 bucks, one 50mm driver, and three 13mm smaller drivers per channel. The sound quality might not be great, but it'll be a fun headphone to fool around with.

I can only really compare the AH-D2k and LCD-2 for open and closed bass, but I can assure you that the LCD-2 bass is superior. With the closed 2Ks it is like the bass is being pushed by air movement and you can feel it against your ear. With the open LCD-2, it is like the bass radiates form the drivers in waves with no air movement. To a certain degree it is like the LCDs let you hear the bass rather than feel it. This translates to being able to perceive the subtleties in the bass regions. There is very little bass distortion (I didn't really get the idea of harmonic distortion until I heard the absence of it) which allows the harmonic frequencies to flesh out the tone. Differences in tones of bass guitars and other deep instruments are readily apparent.

 

I consider myself a 'basshead', that is why I got the LCDs. But I prefer quality over quantity any day of the week. Open back cans definitely can outperform closed cans for bass reproduction. They can also provide a much better soundstage so the bass can fill a certain area of your perceived headstage and allow other elements to occupy other areas around your head, rather than having it all pounding away at your ears.

 

YMMV.

I appreciate your insight regarding open cans and also appreciate quality bass, but need the "air movement" as well since the punch really gives that subwoofer feel.  I found the best of both worlds with the Ultrasone Signature DJ.

Don't get me wrong, I can still certainly appreciate that subwoofer like ear massage. The 2ks do that much better than the LCDs. There are pros and cons to both open and closed designs. It is a matter of preference.

I have no experience whatsoever with other high end cans.

But i can say that the bass impact is what i need, while the bass quality + texture is what i crave.

Depends on the person.

Agree.  I heard the Alpha Dogs at a meet and while they are not basshead cans, the textured bass goes well with one of the best overall sounding headphones I ever heard, rivaling Audeze.
