They don't all have to be basshead cans. Just sound nice. I have my eye on ath m20x's. Are they good? Or Sony v6. I need a pair for studio work. I don't really want any treble or mids emphasized cans. That much treble or mids would give me a headache. I just need a flat response, and some V shaped response, or bass cans. I think I could probably get 4-6 cans... Or I could convince my parents I take care of my stuff and get 1-2 pairs of 400$-600$ cans along with the e12 amp and the 77's. My dad thinks all kids are punk thieving drug smoking crack addicts. So for now, just suggest the lower end cans to me and tell me what they are good for. I'd like to hear an opinion about them from my fellow bassheads before I go read a biased review by an "Audiophile" and try to see past their garbage and look at the facts.

Try the Q40. Good for portable and inexpensive, with great bass.

Well, if he's out there sailing alone on a boat he has to charge his rig somehow! He can't be stealing power, he'd end up in jail, and couldn't attend BBQ beach parties...

Agreed. I don't know why many people call them bassy. Some even consider them basshead headphones, which is strange because to my ears they sound fairly neutral. Yes, the subbass is boosted slightly , but that doesn't get them anywhere near basshead levels of bass.

I constantly see them being referred to as "bass cannons".

 

I'm not even joking.

I find it odd as well.  The ATHM50 was a staple recommendation a few years ago for newbies, but I think maybe it has backfired.  They are still very highly recommended in the pro audio forums I noticed. 

 

I'm starting to believe that indeed we all hear things differently via headphones and maybe indeed to some (perhaps the majority even) they do sound like bass cannons because of their physiological condition, that is if I give them the benefit of the doubt.  Otherwise my default stance is these people have no clue.

 

I wonder if people notice the sounds of a bustling city as they go about their daily lives - there is an absolute reference right there.

Personally I thought they sounded rather "neutral" to my ears un-EQ:ed. However, they were very responsive to EQ, so when you turn that bass knob up they became bass cannons. Some headphones just does not respond as well to EQ. Perhaps people are boosting their bass and saying "Yeah, these are bass cannons".

post #9610 of 11259

Perhaps it should be 'capable of being bass cannons if EQed properly,' otherwise it could be fairly misleading to the typical head-fi newbie and could cause some major disappointment, ala 'WHAT NO BASS THEY LIED' style.

M50s are ridiculous cannons when EQ'd! They turn into monsters.

 

But alas, I see people turning away newbies from them, with cries of "all you get is just boom boom bass".

 

Makes me sad. It's such a neutral can (to my ears), and probably sounds neutral to a newbie.

Awesome to see a fellow owner! I really like them a lot, specially when EQed they can really shine and if you want bass, they can deliver big time too. Love how they seal against me ears...at first I though I wouldn't like that.

Welcome to the club, although not sure how many others own them besides us here. lol

Yeah some times is like...is people really unaware of such 'alien' technologies as EQing? I mean, we are all different so EQing to me is a given with any headphone. Of course it must have good quality to begin with.

Yeah, it makes me a bit sad to see people with great -- perhaps greater authority than they really should have -- authority on the forums, saying they sound "boring" and whatnot. I mean, they're definitely not flawless -- they have their flaws and they can only take you "so far". However, for the money, I find them good and quite excellent as your first foray into a more higher-end sound in headphones.

 

That being said, I do think they have been over-recommended as well. People recommending them to left and right with no respect to what people actually want from a headphone (or their stance on sound "enhancing" such as EQ:ing, etc.) and that's when it's almost guaranteed that they will upset and disappoint some people.

 

Some people just just aren't EQ-friendly and while I am, I can understand them wanting something very different in that situation.

Well, I have the XB 910's and I love them for bassheavy music genres (trap, hiphop, etc.). I don't know for sure that they are the same as X10's though. I'd love some explanation from Sony:

 

Is the XB800 the same as the XB900 as the XB910 as the XB920 as the X10?

From what I have seen the 920s are indeed the X10 without the lame endorsement :D
