Otherwise, the Astrotec AX60 is pretty heavy on the bass.

MY DAP is iphone 4. I do not plan to use any amp. My current iem is ATH cks90. It does not fit very well and I cant feel the bass much smily_headphones1.gif I believe there are better alternatives. I am not an audiophile so i am new to most terms here smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks in advance smily_headphones1.gif
Budget IEM I have is the V-MODA O Positive. $50, nice soundstage, good bass. Like a little M100 in your pocket.

Boys whoever told me that I ain't heard nothing yet when I did just plug in my ZO2.3 with my T50RP...

You were damn right! Holy James, pairing my BH with my ZO is actually a must! I love it definitely.

Now what is this Woojer? I like things like this, don't tickle me or my wallet will hate me haha wink.gif

If I can give you an advice, search for a ZO. You don't need to go the amp route all the way since you're not an audiophile, but you will definitely want a ZO. It WILL change your life with your iPhone. And it is damn slim and tiny, you will forget it in your pocket.
I actually run an iPhone 5 as portable source and I know well the older models too smily_headphones1.gif

is there any IEM that has the Pro 900 bass? I bought Astrotec AX-60 and was disappointed with the bass especially coming from pro 900 (maybe i spoiled my ears with them :)) Any thoughts?

Absolutely the Denon AH-C300.   The bass is addictive and they are the bassiest IEM I have ever heard that also has decent sound across the range.

post #8367 of 11259

Those C300 looks like they are about the only IEMs which would satisfy my needs for bass + overall decent performance. Actually the $15 Koss SparkPlugs have nice bass for me probably due to the fit but overall sound lacks a lot of refinement. 

Why? Only by looking at the Goldenears graph I can tell these pack some unusual aspect in bass for IEMs, they don't only rumble, but they pack a punch to the bass, that's my number 1 complaint with IEMs bass, they just don't give the punch or impact of fullsized sealed basshead headphones but these looks like they might. The bass isn't too skewed towards below 100Hz which if looking at IEM frequency responses usually do; extend further the deeper the bass goes which leads to somewhat rumbly but punchiless bass.

 

If any1 wants to trade a barely used ATH-CKS70 (less than 2 hrs) for Denon C300 I'm in. :p

The AH-C300 absolutely has the punch.  I cant believe they are only $80 on Amazon! :gs1000smile:

I miss my D2000's. I need to find a way to fill that spot with a $200 budget...any suggestions? I've had a suggestion for DT770/80's and Soundmagic HP100's. I want something with plenty of bass but also a decent (even if needing some EQ-ing) mid and hi without being too peircing. I'm a basshead and want it to be able to go loud too. I'm driving my HP's off of my Denon AVR-1613...which blows my FiiO E9 away! Now to find something in my budget to replace the greatest headphones I have ever owned and listened to. My HARX700's and DX3's are pretty damn good...the DX3's go deep but just can't do the punch the D2000's had...though I'll give the DX3's a nod to how clear everything else is...too much bass will distort em at loud volumes where the D2000's would spit out some nice n' heavy n deep bass that would give me chills.

 

Any way I can find something close? Is the HP100 or 770 as good as I can get for $200 or so?

post #8370 of 11259

You can pick up a pair of Denon D600s for around $225 used off of Amazon. That will be your best bet, imo.
