+1. It's a good thing to swap it even if there's no issues as it may develop issues with the cable connectivity sooner or later. Also to my ears the impedance must be pretty high as I instantly noticed with another cable that it sounded slightly clearer (probably slightly louder).

Keep it coming.

I got 5 English classes in a row to teach so i'm out but I'll check in after.

 add your 2 cents....it's worth a lot more than that.

I will add that the hfi 580s have superior quality of bass for the price but they dont extend extremely low, and need an eq to hit hard. Almost more treble than bass.

The signature djs are just at the point of physical impact, where you can feel the vibrations and hits physically but i wouldnt say they make your head rattle. A v shape sound signature mostly preferring the bass to treble.

So the midrange takes a step back and sounds a bit more distant? I'd love to have a Signature DJ without the "distant" midrange.

Are the DT770 PRO (80) actually considered bass cans? I have only tried the 250ohms and the bass wasn't really there. But they are so comfortable it's unbelievable.

Numbering (in the basswiki) would indicate that the headphone at # 1 would be the best option for its category. That's not going to work. Too many opinions and aspects to take into consideration. I think bullet points are better here.

 

Also, including price would be a good thing, if someone wants to take a look and has a budget in mind.

Get an audio only V-Moda cable for $14 and you'll never use the stocker again buddy!

I dont know if I can even call the M50 basshead material if EQed properly.
I would say they can deliver bass at that point but for me to get bass anywhere near the MDR-X10 I have to use the Xperia Z Ultra bulti in x-clarity/Audio Enhancements with the bass boost at max, and  then FiiO E17 all the way to Bass 10 and then it sounds good but if I were to use the  E18 which I prefer over the E17, since it only has one Bass option, it wont get the M50 to the level of Bass I like.
Then again, I do not listen to super loud levels so maybe that is why I need to push bass more to compensate for the lower listening levels.

Still, just wanted to share my brief experience with them.

Eh, I hate to outright disagree, but depending on what EQ and amp you're using, you can make them shift along a glass table. 

 

(In other words, if you don't think they can be basshead worthy with EQ, then maybe try a different EQ :P )

So why are you disagreen if that is exactly what I said above? With the E17 pushed to the max then yes it gives good bass but to me that is pushing it because it will depend on what you have at hand while others real bassy headphones do not need even half that to rattle your skull. That was my point :)

BTW, is the Sen Momentum supposed to be lighter on bass than the M50 if you have heard both by any chance?

Regards

I'd agree with that. Pretty much what I felt. More impact would threaten the mids so perhaps they were tuned to do exactly that. Would you agree they are Hi_Fi low end boys?

Good point will change the # to bullets. (that's as good as done)

FOSTEX th900 may be the epitomy of Hi-Fi low end.  They are expensive and resonate with a deep bass. Most impressive of the 5 or 6 1k + cans I heard.

 

Ultrasone Signature Dj's

               Pro 900's          I thought the pro 900's had better impact. That's one mans view though.  (opinions?)

 

Disagree with the FOSTEX?

 

I'm gonna need help with the Hi fi low end more than anything as i said..I have only heard a few and just a couple were exceptional/outstanding in the low end. Fostex is my ref point.
