does she have an equally awesome sister? :)

 

i haven't really looked into LCD2 that much (haven't got there yet!), but is Rev.2.2 the one with the best bass?

 

was considering getting HE-400 to try something different...but tempted to just skip all the way! :)

Hahaha...treat her out to dinner or something at a fancy (preferably French) restaurant. She'll love it, despite the cliche.

Keep in mind i do like a lot of bass wink.gif The maximum i could spend unfortunately is $150, as shipping to here already takes $30 and im saving up for something big (non-headphone related). If it has a detachable cable, that would be a huge plus. Portability is kind of important but not necessary. I mean, if it doesn't have a coiled cable then i could use it as a portable. Oh, and i have plenty of power to drive anything so amping is not an issue.

As of now, my options are:

UE6000, theres a killer deal for them on Amazon now for $99.

M Audio Q40 ($139).

Creative Aurvana Live 2 ($129)

So what do you guys think? Any other suggestions?

Q40, add a V-Moda audio only cable for $15 and $14 for Shure pads and you're set. A bit over your purchase price but close.

She's lolling at your responses. And she likes Japanese food, not French :wink_face:

 

I gave her a set of Westone 3s as a gift last year, she loves them. She's a basshead!

Well, i have some Beyer pads. And from what i've read they go really good with the Q40's. Do you have any experience with that?

LOL. You should get her into Head-Fi...unless she already is one of the four five women on Head-Fi history. She like sushi?

The 400's being totally open kind of sucks when kids family running around..but when all is quiet...WOW. I thought I was more basshead...it took a pair of HP's that brings out details in music, games, etc and the open sound is so damn good. The bass is pretty damn good too, can be EQ'd and Amped it for sure! There isn't the same impact either..the D2000's will rumble deeper and hit harder, but the bass on the 400's is more defined, accurate, enveloping without being muddy. The D2000's seem deep and smooth with rumble. Both are excellent. I've had my D2000's for 4-5 years. I plan on getting another set of pads so I can still use them. They're fun, but the HE-400 are more fun overall. I got my HE-400 for $319 shipped new before Christmas. It's a tough draw but I feel like I moved forward going with the HE-400, it's more fun and adds more to my music and games, a depth, I can't explain but is sure fun to enjoy. I'm no audiophile but I'm glad I bought these! The D2000's see a lotta drawer time...which is good, mine broke at the hinge and they're rigged up until further notice. If you NEED bass, go D2000...if you need easier to drive, go D2000. The HE-400's are easy to drive but lose a lot without amping imho..especially in bass. They're both still good unamped but the D2000 sound better unamped imho.

 

It's awfully tough to justify a used pair for the same price as a new HE-400 though. The D2000 are far lighter and more comfy. The HE-400 clamp better. Both do very well in your preferred music range. I listen to about everything, and the HE-400 is more of a do-anything can than the D2000 IMO. Tough choice in a sense, and easy in the other. If you value bass and want a legend, get the D2000...but be careful with them. The HE-400 are built tough...not worried about breaking them. I am still very nice but they're solid. The cable doesn't bug me. The stock pleathers sound good and are more comfy w/o the foam ring under the pads. I vote HE-400. Especially if you don't mind using an EQ! Both respond well, the HE-400 responds better imo. I gotta stop there... I vote HE-400. 

Haha. I can totally see your love for both. I feel like its getting even harder after reading this lol. If I can get a D2000 cheaper I will def buy it...but for its price now its really hard for me to ignore the HE-400. I listen to a lot of different music too, but mainly indie rock and dubsteps. Can I ask what amp do you use for your HE-400?

Are you talking about the velour or the pleather or the gel Beyer pads?  I've tried them all on the Q40.  The velour to me killed the bass and ruined the isolation.  Gel was great but getting used to the feel was interesting.  Pleather was good but prefer the Shure 840 pleather.  Ultimately the Alpha pads, which are on it now, are my favorite bar none.

I was talking about the velour pads. And that fact that the velour killed the bass is bad as i love those pads so much. Softest and most comfy pads ive ever tried. I think ill go with the stock pads then order the 840 pads if i dont like the stock ones.

Anyway, thanks for the help man.

My pleasure.   Always glad to help.

 

A very respected member Malveaux did a review on the Q40 and LOVED the velour.  When I tried them..............not so much.  Comfort WAS good but the death of the bass drop was a non starter for me.  Alpha pads re as comfy anyway and no pleather/leather pad hurts the bass.

And yup! Rev 2.2, 2013 model. The later 2013 model had slightly thicker and softer pads, I believe. 

The bass is incredible. Sub-bass like I've never heard in a headphone system.

Thats awesome!!! Have fun!!

Oh man! I've been waiting to hear what you think of them - such a long wait!

 

What extra treatment is she getting?

Do you have to buy from amazon because this stuff can be had at a cheaper price. The Q40s are only $99 directly from M-audio's website and the ue6000's are only $89 on ebay with free shipping (you just missed the sales from tigerdirect for $69.97 or something like that).
