Gw3gon. Your best choices would be the ath cks77x, the highsoundaudio wooduo 2 or the logitech ue6000. These can all be bought in your price range and easily perform above what you pay for them

If you don't mind upping your budget a slight bit, and don't mind buying overseas, I would have to recommend the corecool v2. Those things = death by bass.

How much of an upgrade is it from the ATH CKS 77s? Do you think it's worth the extra?

What open-back headphones would you guys recommend in the sub-300 dollar range? I was looking at the dt-990 Pros for about $150, would there be any other headphones you guys recommend?

Philips X1 has excellent bass in an open back design.

Oregonian, I didn't know you had the TH-900. Impressions and comparisons are now required :o

 

Would love to have a comparison to Sig DJ.

Hey guys, for a while I've been on a hunt for a basshead headphone that will totally satisfy my urge for deep, rich, textured head slamming bass while having excellent crystal clear highs (I like a V-shaped sound signature) and I haven't quite found my match yet. While I've owned a few bass-heavy headphones in the past, none of them really quite delivered that thundering bass experience I was expecting.

 

Had a pair Audio-Technica M50's, and while they are a phenomenal headphone with value, their bass didn't quite satisfy.

 

Have a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-A900x, and they sound great, but despite descriptions saying they are very bass-heavy, I dont find them to be bass-heavy, in fact, I would say that in my opinion they are kind of light on bass (listening to them right now).

 

Had a new Beats By Dre Studio headphone (because if you need bass then you Beats delivers in aplenty, right), and while they new Studios are a massive improvement over the old line of headphones Beats has released in the past, and they sound great, I found myself wishing for even MORE bass from them.

 

Now, I have been doing a bit of research and I have my eye on 2 headphones, the V-MODA Crossfade M-100 and the Ultrasone Pro 900. The Ultrasone does not look as pretty, have as much features/accessories and is more expensive than the M-100, but if the extra $200 that the Ultrasones cost will get me the ULTIMATE in thundering bass and sound clarity, I WILL pay. On the other hand, if the difference in sound quality is not that different compared to the M-100, and the M-100 can keep up with the Pro 900 in level and quantity of bass-response, then I will save my money and go for the M-100 (which has gotten plenty of rave reviews and looks great).

 

I just want to get a good headphone with heavy, rich and impactful bass response that complements my other headphones, (I own a Shure SRH-940 which could be regarded as a detail-monster or treblehead can, and a Sennheiser HD598 that I absolutely adore), and be just done with acquiring new headphones for now. I listen to a wide range of genres of music, but I have alot of EDM and Pop tracks and I need a headphone that absolutely makes the low-end frequencies in these tracks come ALIVE.

 

Are the Ultrasones PRO 900 that good with bass response and is it worth the extra cash? Do I just go with the M-100, or is there yet another can than can satisfy my deep craving for heavy bass?

From my experience owning them both, the Pro900 is what you want. Nothing against the M-100 but the Pro900 has the deepest hardest hitting bass and more comfort as well. And if you search you can find them for $250ish. I paid $252 Amazon open box only it looked new.

Personally I prefer my Sony XB-910 over basically every other headphone I own when it comes to bass, including the Pro 900. If I want to listen to something more refined, I use my D2000, but for basically everything else: Sonys. 

 

They're not world class when it comes to mids and treble, and a lot of audiophiles on this site would hate them because they won't make the bouquet of the sound feel romantic, or something, but they're good and clear enough to make it a daily headphone for me (yep, I find them that good). I perceive the mids on the Pro 900 more dipping and the treble slightly more harsh than on the Sonys, so it's not bad at all for being a fart cannon. That being said, if you're an audiophile, you probably want something else to turn your audio glossary into superlatives.

 

Me? I just love the ear massage I get from them. :basshead:

Have had them about two months now. Love them tho they are really close to the D7000 that I've had for awhile if not basically the same. Definitely basshead approved!

Vs the Sig DJ no contest for me other than the DJ does portability better and isolates better. Comfort, overall sound and bass all go to the TH900.

Sooooo, ATH CKS 77x, the Corecool or the Denons which you have suggested?

CKS77x is good but the for a basshead Denon has everything you want- a heaping helping of natural, extended bass with clear mids, detailed, sparkly highs and a spacious soundstage...not to mention the value(MSRP was originally $249 on the Denon). Though I enjoy the the CKS77x the fun-factor of the C300 is really hard to beat- it's very musical/engaging for an IEM with so much bass. I haven't listened to the Corecools but from impressions I've read they seem comparable. So far out of all the IEMs I've purchased the Urban Ravers give me the most satisfaction. As an EDM listener it just hits all the right notes for me : )

Who told you that the ATH-A900x's were basshead cans?!?! LOL

To me they are actually similar to your Shure SRH940s but with more bass response (a bit less bite up top as well).

 

Anyway, the M100s are pretty cool and sound is good but comfort is not the best (haven't tried the XL pads) and they are V-shaped but the highs don't reach the levels that you'd probably like to so that leaves you with the Pro 900s. I've never had those Ultrasones but as Oregonian mentioned, they should be good and to your liking. So go with those. Pretty sure you'll like them! ;)
