post #9466 of 11259

Why is it that Hawaiibadboy and DisCHORDDubstep seem to talk a lot like eachother and promote the same exact headphone brand? They can't be the same person as one lives in Minnesota and the other owns a school in Japan. Still, they talk/write just as if they were twins... If I were to guess, I'd say that they probably even look just like eachother.

 

Oh, these mysteries.. 

 

:confused:

Hey guys, I know there is a recommendation section BUT this thread seems to be exactly what I am looking for. I am looking to buy a first pair of headphones. I mainly listen to Rap & RnB. Sometimes I venture into other genres but I mainly stick to those and love bass. 

 

I have been looking at the ATH-M50x's or the V-Moda M100's but I am open to any suggestion. 

 

I have been reading some of your comments but was looking for a bit more help. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

JVC HA-MR77X's. 100$ for the most ear shattering bass you will ever hear, and no. It doesn't drown out the rest of the music. I personally have the JVC HA-M55X's and they shatter my ears. I'm going to get the 77's soon. Oh by the way coq de combat, I'm still in high school. No way am I in Japan owning one. Plus, I just happen to be like Hawaii apparently, and like bass thumps on my head. And fear the panther, do you have a headphone amp? And what device are you using for music?

I am just using my boring IPod or Computer. Nothing special.

That's what I thought. You couldn't possibly be the same person under multiple accounts, since Hawaiibadboy is out in Japan owning a school and pointing guns to the heads of the Yakuza. So weird, so strange. Oh well, I'll head back to watching whatever documentary I was watching ...

Pointing guns? To heads of... Yakuza?... O.O... And panther, what is your price limit?

And I was looking into V-Moda for a while too, and sol republic, but then... I bought the JVC HA-M55X and haven't looked back. My friend with his 300$ beats studios was completely astounded how a pair of cans he's never heard of could be better than his name branded cans... And for 50$ with the 60$ FiiO E11 amp. If you want some bigger headphones, start looking into amps. I'd suggest the E12 for its power. The E12 is 120$, and the JVC HA-MR77X's are 100$. So 220$ for the bassperience of a lifetime. My setup of the E11 and the JVC Ha-M55X's cost me 100$, and even that out thumps beats, vmoda, sennheiser, skull candy, sol republics, audio technicas etc, and sounds better than most of them too in all or most aspects.

They've got better in recent years, as they actually started making their own cans rather than OEMing them, but they're still not brilliant(Skullcandy cans).

Price limit is about $300-$400

Well, you are going to want to buy an amp for any headphone you are looking at. Go look up the FiiO E12. Trust me, it'll make the headphones sound much better, and increase volume 2-5 times in most cases. Depending on what headphones you get. My E11 made the M55X's get about 3 times as loud. If you want a loud thump with no distortion at full volume(my m55x's are already louder than HTC One phone speakers with the amp... I want to see what the E12 with the Mr77x's Is like... Probably louder than anyone would ever need!) then I suggest the MR77X's.

I can also recommend the E11 for cheap, bass boost-capable amp. Something to consider if you don't have enough for an E12.

For cans:

  • M-Audio Q40s for emphasized bass, neutral mids and slightly rolled-off treble. Pad roll-able (I suggest Beyer velours or Alpha Pads which cost more) and the stock cable sucks so replace it (many people like the V-Moda audio-only cable). Disclaimer: I personally own these.
  • V-Moda M100s for a fun V-shaped (emphasized treble and bass) sound signature and tank-like build quality. Some people require the XL pads for comfort reasons. Tried in a shop but didn't like them very much because I despise emphasized treble.
  • JVC HA-M77Xs as mentioned above for an apparently god-like amount of bass which trumps everything else. I've never heard them, but Hawaii and DisCHORD love them.

 

For amps (all with bass boosts):

  • FiiO E12 for a lot of power and good build quality.
  • E11 which is cheaper and smaller (and can optionally be paired with the ZO 2.3 for MOAR BASS).
  • Headstage Arrow 3G refurb which is more expensive (and customer service is variable) but has two levels of bass boost and additionally has crossfeed, is very slim and has a very long battery life.

The HA-MR77X's do have a V shaped response, but with a little more bass than treble. Slightly V shaped. Doesn't drown out mids or highs. AND produces the godly gifted wubs. If I had to put a ratio on bass to mids to treble, its this. 39:29:32

Really fun. Really cheap. It'll leave ya a little spending money. And the frame from what I've heard on the 77's is metal with a plastic or rubber coat, and the cups swivel so they are a little easier to carry around, and easier to listen to people while enjoying music. VERY BIG. Weigh exactly 1 pound. Other than that, the JVC Sz1000 look fairly good. They have dual drivers. A 35mm one for mids and treble, and a 55mm subwoofer for bass. I'd like to try them out sometime!
post #9480 of 11259
Eh.. I just looked up that Zo 2.3 to see what it was, because he said MOAR BASS. DO NOT. LOOK AT THE IMAGES. Unspeakable acts come up... Funny thing is, there were no websites like that that came up. Only pictures. Lol.
