The Basshead Club - Page 614  

post #9196 of 11259
^well I made a poop face when I heard it. So take me saying I heard .. With a grain of salt. But from a more solid source a mate told me that compared to my yamaha hph mt220 it hit like a sledge hammer while my yamaha was like a hand mallet. It maybe the dynamics alongside the bass. Further more I asked around and asked people to compare it to hp's they heard that were slightly above neutral and they said it had more. But on the pandora thread they are reluctant to call it a basshead phone because it is refined.


Now this is all from what I gather in my looking into them so none of it is to be taken as facts. However it may satisfy a basshead lookin for fidelity all around and what I will buy within the month. I am interested in the dido as well. I would like to swap with someone for a listen

Hey, hawaii bad boy, what music do you casually listen to anyhow? I couldnt imagine only listening to songs meant for bass constantly. Once in a while its fun though.

TBH this is why I snagged the M100's. I listen to a LOT of Gucci, Wayne, Ross, Flocka type rap, which they push out wonderfully, but when it's time to listen to something else? I can't have that.

Holy crap, EIGHT ohm impedance? You could power these things with static electricity, LOL. Now that's a pair I'd love to test drive.

i think its more a matter of sensitivity... the m-100 has an impedance of 32 ohm and can still be driven to very high volumes off anything really. infact, my dt 770s are 250 ohms and they too can be driven pretty well by a phone. despite the relatively high impedance, they are also very sensitive. impedance isnt everything...

OK, I will keep an eye on them. Thanks for the tip. :) I mean whichever headphone I pick will be further bass boosted with digiZoid ZO which to me is the best working bass boosting amp due to its precise configurability thanks to 32 levels of bass adjustment so yea it mean one headphone maybe only needs level 3 when another maybe needs lvl 15 etc but I can't take just any good sounding headphone and just let ZO do the job, still has to be a decent amount going for it in the headphone itself for me to get satisfied and the most important aspect is how the bass is configured in the headphone so it's reasonably balanced between midbass and subbass, that's the most important thing to me. But yea I need both bass and overall sound quality and I have no doubt the Pandora VI would please me, bass put aside.

Holy smokes, the Pandora VI weighs 480 g, now I'm unsure... I'm used to cans weighting less than 300 g and well ideally I like headphones around 250 g or lighter so it would be quite hard to get acoustomed to almost 500 g. :p I wear the headphones pretty much all the time even when not listening to music at home and when I sit at the computer so if they are light enough to "disappear" on my head that's always a big plus.

I get it... its also about how the weight is distributed. but it is 100 grams less. but 100 dollars more. Personally I dont mind that weight. The pandora moves around I read on your head and is heavier while the Dido has clamping issues as well as it can be loose fitting.

 

The thing about the Dido that turns me off is the pads. I havent heard what they will do about it when it wears out. The Pandora will have new pads coming out and they are removable. Both are metal headphones  lol. I want to try them though. I started a thread soliciting opinions so I could choose between the th600, dido d901, and pandora VI but I left it alone. 

 

I really want to try that m-audio q40 though. That is big on my radar.

They are amazing for the price which I got them for. You probably won't be disappointed :o

for that price all I want is the following and I will be thrilled:

 

more bass or similar bass quantity to the hdj500

more clarity than the hdj500

tighter bass than the hdj500 but similar to the hdj2000

deeper than the average pre 2011 hp

tigher than the COP

Impedance affects its power, since P=I^2 x R

 

You can power high impedance headphones fine, but you might not be able to drive them properly, if you know what I mean. Bass won't be as prominent and mids will be slightly recessed, for example.

I've never had a chance to compare the Q40 with those cans, but comparison with the PX200, HD25 ALU, HD650 with silver drivers, VK-1 and NAD HP50 left me pretty happy about its performance.

Yeah, the Q40s should be in most "bassheads" arsenals really...

how do you know what drivers are in it. THat is my fav can but  i dont even know what drivers they had. Do those drivers have more sub bass. 

 

They need to come out with an hd650 BLACK or something to make them similar a little less veiled and more sub bass.

HD650s made after 2007 (I think) have drivers that are silver-coloured (the one on the right in the photo I conveniently found online). Apparently when compared to the old version, they are brighter and more balanced although I haven't personally compared the two myself.

 

P.S. I should mention that I paid GBP49 for the Q40s on the recent amazon.co.uk sale, a big discount from their usual price.

Then I've also read the prototype they had of Pandora seems to have been bassier than the latest one.


Dido's are delivering to me today for audition.  Should be fun to compare them to Pro900, Q40, Denon D2000, TH900 and, yes, the illustrious JVC HAMX-55 (which sound like ass).  I remember when the XB500 sounded good................a short two years ago. 

 

Dido sounds intriguing so very interested to see if they creak and how the quality of the sound translates to an audiophile basshead.  Posting up later or tomorrow.
