Hmm yeah, I just checked up the reviews and the Denon seems to be apt for my needs. Thanks for the help! I'll tell you how they are when I get them ;)

We need to make a catchphrase for The Basshead Club. Like: "Welcome to The Basshead Club. Enjoy the head massage."

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?

Come on, you seek bass and yet nobody suggested you to check ATH pro 700mk2? Aren't these cans reputed to be THE benchmark in bass deepness and power actually? More than Beats, more than M100, I wonder how it fights again the Pro900 since I haven't had the luck to experience these Ultrasones.

Can somebody confirm my suggestion or correct me if I said something wrong?

Revisited those recently, q40 with alpha pads go way deeper.

Ok, so I already posted this in the dedicated thread and figured I'd post it here also since it has already made my life as a basshead much more enjoyable :D The thread I linked to is about a text based system wide Equalizer for windows called APO Equalizer. The great thing about this EQ is that you get the ability to control gain (free range) and apply custom parametric EQ (even multi channel is possible) to all of your windows sources at once (Spotify, media player, mediamonkey, you name it). This means you have the exact same settings regardless of your music source. A head-fi member called jiiteepee made a GUI for the Equalizer and I have now applied the EQ and the GUI to my system at home and made a few tweaks to conveniently switch between EQ-contours. I'm planning to make optimized contours for all my headphones, but for now I only have a few boosts as a proof of concept.

Contours:

- Powerful: V-shape
- Bass: 7dB Bass boost that peaks at 50hz 

- Neutral: flat
- fPEQGUI-10MC_020: A setting that points to the output file of the GUI

Naturally I have set the pre-amp gain for all the contours so that the peak is at 0dB.

 

I switch between the contours via buttons on a custom docklet on the low right of my desktop. The buttons are actually just shortcuts to a few simple cmd files that switch places for the configuration files for the APO Equalizer. Very user friendly, very clean, and all of the above is free!!

Let me know if you want an in depth description on how to do this and I'll write one up. Most is covered in the thread I linked to in the beginning of this post.

Edit: O and ignore the desktop background! That's just a wallpaper :D

Hmm...I recall a different system-wide EQ with a built-in GUI. It's called ViPER4Windows. If you've heard of Viper4Android, then you'll know that it's a pretty powerful EQ with a special feature: the ability to take impulse responses and use them as a sort of EQ. It's pretty neat, and you'll find it here: http://vipersaudio.com/blog/?page_id=59

 

If you'd like to know more on the Android version, Joe Bloggs knows more about that, so you could go write him up. Alternatively, you could just search it on Google Play. Just don't forget that you will need to root your Android before you do anything.

Went out on a limb and snagged up some htf-600's the other day. All I have to say is damn... These things are bad ass especially for $30 shipped. Already in love with them. I haven't wanted to touch my tma-1 studios since I got these things they feel a little cheap in the build quality department but for the price I'm in love with the bass lol now lets see how long that lasts before I snag some q40's with alpha pads or some 700mk2's.

I'm waiting for the Nuforce HP-800 to reach me. I also ordered another set of the Sony XB-910, just in case the ones I have should break. The bass is so damned ridiculous on the XB's, so I couldn't help myself. To tell you the truth, if I had to sell all my headphones, I'm not sure whether to sell the D2000, XB-910 or the Klipsch X10 last. They're kind of tied at my own personal top 3 right now. I liked the XB-500 and the Ultrasone Pro 900, but my love for the XB-910 is up there with my love for the D2000 and X10. Dat bass.

post #8682 of 11259
I'm never going to sell my XB1000s either. As a rule of thumb I wouldn't sell any Sony XB series for a long time, knowing Sony they'll be discontinued soon.

Are you saying your XB-910 has more impactful bass the the US 900 pro?? :-o How would you compare them?

Yeah, I would describe the bass of the XB-910 as going deeper, it's (plenty) more impactful and just more in quantity - both in the mid-bass and the sub-bass area. I also think the emphasis of the XB-910 bass lies more within the sub-bass region rather than in mid-bass but the midbass is punchy enough to massage your ears. And as said, I prefer the mids and the treble of the XB-910 as well. It'll be interesting to compare the Nuforce HP-800 too. Trap, dubstep and hiphop lovers would probably like the XB's. A lot.

post #8685 of 11259
Ya looking for some cans to pair up with some DubStep. Looks like I might need to try out the xb920 as there are no xb910s in my area. Thanks.
