The 2Ks provide more of a sense of physical impact like a subwoofer against your face, whereas the LCDs impact is less physical, but more sonic impact. It is kind of like the perception of impact from the 2Ks comes from the cans, whereas the perception of impact of the LCDs comes from the recording (i.e. how the instruments were played or the sounds generated). 

 

I'd say both provide a good sense of impact, but of a different nature.


I think I know what you mean. I have the D5000's and just got an LCD 2 (have yet to really use them fully amped just yet since I just moved) but I know what you're saying with the physical impact of the denons and how they literally will vibrate on your ears like mini subwoofers lol. My old headphones were beyerdynamic dt990's 32 ohm version which had more of the sonic type bass, although I still found them to be a bit bass shy like neither a true sonic impact or physical impact just bass tone really. While sonic impact is like feeling the bass inside your head or ears rather than ON your ears with the literal vibration of the ear cups themselves. Sometimes I dont like when my denons vibrate like that when I have them turned up and have some EDM playing because it starts getting a little annoying physically and makes me feel like I should be hearing that sonically not just physically, since they dont seem to have as much sonic impact as they do physical impact (if we are going with the definitions of sonic vs. physical I laid out). So yea, excited to break in the LCD's and I got a Burson Soloist SL for them too.

I owned for about a month, then returned.  Their detail retrieval is very good, but I felt the bass lacked any satisfying punch.  They are not what I would consider basshead caliber.

I think you are being diplomatic and I may be in the minority, but I felt like the bass was almost artificial and even posted as much at the time.  I could hear the sub-bass, but there was no accompanying "ear massage" like I have with the M-100 and Sig DJ.

No actually, I've never heard them... but I hear SO much mixed information... some say the mid bass is recessed? Missing some times... so to hear you say they are not even Bass head worthy... well makes me curious...

 

The artifical bass how ever is not good

I would say the lack of mid bass is accurate and is probably why they lack punch.  Best Buy has these out for demo in their Magnolia section.

So guys I need some help ;3 I'm looking for a closed back verision of my HE 400

 

Looking for any bass head cans realitivly linear or with sub bass humps

 

Thinking about Modded D2 and D5ks or maybe a Mad Dog... any one have any suggestions? I'm working with about $450 or so dollars going to b using this at home and on the go. So I'd like to avoid anything needed eq. I'm open to modded cans but would like to avoid having to mod something my self

 

How... CLean are Modded WOoden back Dt 770s? I want a focus on SUb and Mid bass, I can accecpt slighty recessed Mids or treble. But nothing with BIG DIPS like the HE 400 had [at least not for closed listening] 

post #8023 of 11259

D2000 has more subbass emphasis than midbass, so it sounds more rumbly than punchy. D600 has a bit more midbass. With a good amp the bass sounds quite powerful, but it's not fast bass with sharp impact.

I'm trying to score a Modded Wooden Back D2K but the seller doesn't want an HE 400 and I'm having a tough time finding a buyer for it. Might BLITZ KREIG it onto the Bay for a quick sale. Espically seeing as I have a buyer for my ePads
