I think pop means soft drink, like coke or sprite.

PUT THE HA-MR77X ON THAT LIST!!! %$*@ YEAH CAPS LOCK!!! And I dried it out in rice, and it seems to be working now, but I have to replace my cord for the amp. The sound is only coming out of one ear, and I plugged another cord in that I had (although that cord is distorted sounding and crappy) and the sound came out both sides... I hope it isn't my amp... Then again, isn't a replacement for an audio jack fairly cheap? Its just the audio out jack, or the cord... I think it might be the jack, because when I plug in the cable almost all the way, it sounds completely fine. When I plug it in all the way, sound only comes out one ear... CONFUSION OF THE CENTURY.

Ugh... Stop disputing what dubstep is and isn't. Just look up "Rage" by Moxix. If you think of dubstep as Skrillex or Deadmau5, you have been sadly turned away. They are the worst artists of the genre. They want to please the American public too much. They are in it for money and fame, not for making good music. Moxix is a true, down to earth, great dubstep artist. I know only about 12 artists that are worthy of recognition. Moxix, Omnitica(he is a little bit different. He makes a ton of different themes for his songs, from pirate sounding violin pieces, to bass heavy, wub your head dubstep.), and a lot of the Monstercat artists... Plus a guy named Masamune who combines American Orchestra with Dubstep. Very interesting guys. All of them should be looked into. Remember, this is coming from a guy who is into all music, from Fleetwood Mac, to miku hatsune, to Guns N' Roses, over to Glenn Miller, to five fingered death punch, all the way to bon jovi. EVERY TYPE. EXCEPT FOR AMERICAN POP MUSIC... Anything but American pop music. And I'm an American teenager. Lol. Look up my dubstep channel on YouTube or soundcloud too if you want to listen to it. Trust me, I try to create actual music, and if you want to condemn an entire genre because of a bad song you heard, bad hype, or you being extremely close minded, then I have no respect for your musical opinion. Absolutely none. If you have heard any of the aforementioned artists and still dislike it, then I will respect that. But until then, you get none. My channel name and sound cloud is DisCHORDDubstep. Type that in exactly.

A new list of 3 tiers of bass cans (Cannons, Hi-fi Low end boys, and Bassy cans) should be created and linked via sig to anyone who contributes to this thread. Keeps the trolls out and we can debate in here before putting a can on there ( the list)

 

@Morph91

 

Cans that slam hard enough to extremely vibrate your head are going to interfere with your ears ability to hear the early mids whether they exist or not. Harmonic resonance can last a micro second long enough to overlay the produced note at 600Hz for example.  You want some of that? i know some of that. It's very fun.

 

 

We can all debate the list and then anyone who bombs in here can be given a "check the sig, come back if you got any SPECIFIC questions"....and be done with it.

 

Both cans listed by the OP would fall under "Bassy cans" IMO...not Hi-Fi and not Cannons<<<<I think he wants these?

That is all opinion there, sir. I like dubstep, and I listen to the bigger names like Nero, Caspa, Rusko, Zomboy... The style of dubstep that you like is just your taste, it doesn't make it better or worse than anyone else's taste.

post #9697 of 11259
I enjoy a few of those artists. And yes, I meant that it was all my opinion.
post #9698 of 11259
I like all styles of dubstep, dear sir. Lol.

It's a Wiki:D

http://www.head-fi.org/a/the-best-bass-headphones-a-head-fi-wiki

 

 

If you would like to join and be able to edit the Wiki please PM me. gelocks got the invite by virtue of balanced view and exceptional Hi end bass can experience. I await others. The debates and agreements take place here. The Wiki is a resource that requires the minds and experiences of many..get on board.

 

Watching folks come in here and recommend "cannons" or bassy headphones is an iffy proposition. If @gelocks or a member with hands on experience is around you might get an honest reply. If nobody or a new member is on you might get a fanboy reply. A static list debated and decided here but kept separate will make life easier for everyone and make this a more efficient experience.

 

Ideas welcome. Flaming negative comments are not

That's actually a really good idea. I hope you get more good people with experience of basshead cans in there! I've only really heard a few basshead cans (Q40, DT770 80 Ohm, TH600) so I don't think I have the experience to merit an invite yet :p

That's actually a really good idea. I hope you get more good people with experience of high-end basshead cans in there! I've only really heard a few basshead cans (Q40, DT770 80 Ohm, TH600) so I don't think I have the experience to merit an invite yet :p 

 

Bias is not welcome. If you have a set of reference and a list of your favorites (that you have heard) please list them. I am listening to a set right now that has me grinning ear to ear because they maybe just dethroned my 77's. If I had not heard them by chance I wouldn't have them and if I had gone by a thread on here I probably would not have gotten them either. They are monsters. They are physically rattling my head as I type and I'm almost giggling.........so much for experience. (folks in that thread).

 

Drop your list everybody's ears have value. debating requires knowledge and experience with "A" and "B" but opinions on experience have great value to the wiki overall.

Well you've seen most of my list already. However, here goes (in no particular order):

  • I hated the DT770 80 Ohm because of it's V-shaped sound signature and nothing about the rest of the sound particularly impressed me as the bass was slightly one-note-ish. Extremely comfortable though. A 'Bassy Headphone' which people who aren't as anti-treble as me would like with a couple mods to dampen the bass.
  • The V-Moda M100 I also hated because of its V-Shaped sound signature (starting to see a pattern here?). Also, it wasn't as comfortable as I require my cans to be although I haven't tried the XL pads yet. A 'Bassy Headphone' which may also please some people - may require XL pads.
  • The Q40 impressed me because the bass is of a really good quality and manages to be emphasized enough without overpowering the mids which are neutral. The highs are slightly rolled off which further pleases my anti-treble side. The stock cable and pads are horrible though. A 'Bassy Headphone' which will please with a cable and pad swap.
  • I want to try the TH600 again once I get my Portaphile 627 Micro because I suspect my Apex Glacier was underpowering them. They sounded kinda average with no special traits considering the price. A 'Hi-Fi Low-end Boy' that requires high-quality amping to sound its best.
  • The Denon AH-D600's agreeable sound quality combined with its supreme comfort managed to convince me to listen to them for more than one song despite the V-shaped sound signature. I can see why people would like them, however I didn't find them to be anything special. A nice, gigantic 'Bassy Headphone'.

 

I am very anti-emphasized treble as you can see. Both my current cans (VK-1 and Q40) have rolled-off treble. Hope you find my opinion valuable though :P

 

Also, a suggestion. Add a fourth category that includes cans that are capable of being basshead cans if EQed properly, like the ATH-M50.

I haven't been spending much time with the q40 but what are the cable options for the q40 and what is wrong with the stock cable. I didn't notice anything right away?

Thanks!

All noted. Everybody's opinion is valued.

Thanks for the impressions too. if enough are similar they(short description) will sit under the cans model # so thanks for the details.

IMO it's too long, too thick and too unwieldy. There are also frequent reports of it failing within a couple months and screwing it into the connector in the Q40 is an arduous task.
